Nestled in the magnificent tranquillity of the Mallorcan countryside, Carrossa Hotel & Spa stands tall in a trident of luxury: stunning hospitality, an immersive spa and first-class gastronomy. With bespoke packages designed to suit the wants and needs of any guest, the resort is as celebrated for its food and wine menu as it is for its hotel.
The Manor House itself blends historic charm with contemporary luxury. Rooms range in size from a standard two-adult room to the deluxe Manor Suite, but each is appointed and decorated with the same graceful style. Views look out across the house’s garden or patio and the olive trees beyond; each room and suite is air-conditioned and equipped with everything you need for a luxurious stay.
The resort recently strengthened its senior team with the appointments of new general manager Mario Wolgast and Kim Toro, who has taken up the position of head chef. Toro is at the helm of a highly reputable culinary offering; the destination is famed for its flagship Restaurant Carrossa, a fine dining experience set to sprawling panoramic views across eastern Mallorca. Though the four-course gourmet menu is evidently inspired by cuisine from around the world, its roots remain firmly planted in the Mediterranean; many dishes feature freshly caught seafood from the island’s coast, just fifteen minutes away by car.
Alternatively, Bistro Badia is a relaxed and exquisitely furnished restaurant overlooking the Bay of Alcúdia. Throughout the day, the kitchen serves an eclectic selection of tapas as well as classic dishes; in the evenings – from Wednesday to Sunday each week – guests can enjoy prix fixe menus that change daily, showcasing the talented kitchen staff with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
For pre- or post-meal drinks, the elegant Bar “Oro” is well-stocked with a variety of wines and serves lovingly prepared cocktails. A rustic bodega featuring some of the finest wines from around the globe is overseen by a knowledgeable in-house sommelier, making it the ideal setting for unforgettable tasting sessions.
For guests looking to truly indulge in this relaxing paradise, Carrossa also boasts a 1,500m2 spa packed with facilities to suit every taste. A 20m infinity pool is perfect for basking in Mediterranean sun, while inside a heated pool awaits in the colder months. The resort’s team pour hours of dedicated care into keeping the surrounding gardens in immaculate condition, and by reflecting the beauty of distant views in flora no more than a few feet away, the spa can completely immerse guests in the island’s colourful countryside.
Every aspect of the spa is geared towards giving guests complete control, none more so than the ‘world of saunas’: a diverse trio that ensures something for everyone. With a choice of a traditional Finnish Sauna, cooler Bio Sauna or revitalising Steam Bath, guests are free to take advantage of whichever they please. At the heart of the world of saunas is the spacious Spa Lounge, with ample room to relax and enjoy refreshments.
For a more personal touch, Carrossa offers a vast programme of treatments, each delivered by the resort’s experienced therapists. Head-to-toe pampering awaits, ranging from massages to hot stone treatments and everything in between. Guests can also browse a broad selection of beauty and cosmetic treatments, while customised special treatments incorporating natural elements such as passion fruit and peppermint are available.
To complete an impressive array of self-care facilities, Carrossa’s state-of-the-art gym is a perfect workout space full of the latest cardiovascular and weight training equipment. This is where regular, expert-led yoga classes take place every Tuesday and Friday, suitable for beginners and veterans of the discipline alike.
Complementing the resort’s existing offering for 2023 will be the launch of a pop-up bar throughout the summer season. From June to September, an outdoor bar and lounge area will introduce a new way for guests to enjoy the resort. With breath-taking views across the picturesque countryside, signature cocktails will be available alongside a range of favourites from Bar Oro.
Though you’ll probably never want to leave the hotel, there’s plenty to do in the immediate area for adventurous guests. From cycling and nearby beaches to golf, including some of Spain’s finest golf courses within easy driving distance, it’s hard to imagine a better place for a leisure holiday. Every Tuesday, the nearby town of Artà comes alive with a bustling market that thousands flock to sample. The rest of the time, though, this side of Mallorca is as far removed as you can get from the neon nightlife that continues to draw so many to the island. In fact, it’s the antithesis: an oasis with a lifestyle so relaxed that – unless you step into the Finnish sauna – you’ll barely break a sweat.
