Cap Rocat

I recently had the pleasure of spending the week at Cap Rocat in Mallorca. Set in a reconstructed 19th-century fortress overlooking the magnificent Bay of Palma, the hotel strikes the perfect balance of understated elegance. Spanish architect Antonio Obrador, the mastermind behind the project, was faced with stringent restrictions because the building was listed as a Cultural Heritage Site and Protected Natural Area. Although this may have created a few design dilemmas, I think it ultimately helped in creating a truly authentic experience.
