Boutique retreat with wellness and meditation in the middle of nature on Mallorca
In the northeastern part of Mallorca, a short distance from the town of Artà, you will find the idyllic boutique resort, Es Racó d'Artà. This is the perfect getaway for anyone who wants to enjoy the tranquil side of the island and to completely unwind. Everything here revolves around relaxation, unwinding, and enjoying traditional cuisine.
In the 220 hectare estate, you will find a main building with luxury suites, separate cottages and villas with private pool, a large wellness area with a sauna and infinity pool, and its own wine, olive, and orchard. Connoisseurs can indulge in Restaurant Beni Axir, where only seasonal dishes are served. Everything is prepared with as many ingredients from their own garden and local products as possible, adhering to the rhythm of nature as much as possible.
Es Racó d'Artà is a place where you can let yourself be surprised by unique experiences and where you can reconnect with yourself through the Mallorcan way of life. Immerse yourself in local gastronomy, join a yoga class, relax with meditation exercises and spa treatments, or get lost in the beautiful surroundings during a hike.
With only a 20-minute drive, you will reach the welcoming beach, Cala Torta, a wonderful place with clear blue seawater and fine sand to lay your towel on. The last stretch must be covered on foot, but it is definitely worth the effort! All in all, Es Racó d'Artà and the surrounding area is a perfect spot for those seeking tranquility, couples, and nature lovers.
Es Racó d'Artà is a unique destination on the island of Mallorca. With a long history, it has been reborn as a luxury boutique retreat thanks to Antoni Esteva and Jaume Danús, aiming to restore the fame that the Mallorcan countryside should never have lost. The main building, dating from the 13th century, has been maintained by different farming families through the generations, until tourism skyrocketed in the 1970s and many of the old fincas were abandoned. The current owners have transformed this little corner of Mallorca into a sustainable place of rest, connected with nature.
Luxury suites and detached cottages
During a stay at Es Racó d'Artà, you have a choice of various types of accommodation. You can, for example, stay in one of the luxury suites in the main building, Sa Possessió. All of them have a balcony and a fantastic view of the estate. If you prefer more freedom and privacy, you can opt for a stay in a detached cottage, also known as a casita. These have a terrace, an outdoor shower, and some even have a private pool. Want to stay even more exclusively? This is possible in Sa Meva Casa, a detached house with a private pool on the edge of the forest.
Restaurant Beni Axir
With the intention of 'going back to the roots' and working with products that come directly from their own organic gardens and local producers, restaurant Beni Axir serves only dishes based on the season of the year. This way, the natural rhythm of the harvest is not influenced, and as a guest, you can enjoy the freshest ingredients. Admire the artistically plated dishes and gaze at the sparkling starry sky while enjoying the excellent food and a good glass of wine. The perfect end to a wonderful day!
Discover the versatile Mallorca
Es Racó d'Artà is located in a rural area, far from the crowds but close to beautiful beaches and interesting sights. When you stay here, be sure to plan a trip to the artistic Arta itself and for example Capdepera with its archaeological sites on your list. Also, you should not miss the idyllic beaches Cala Tora and Midjana.
Es Racó d'Artà is located in the northeast of Mallorca, near the town of Artà. The estate is located in the middle of nature and the accommodations are surrounded by olive and fruit trees. You can reach several sandy beaches within a half-hour drive.
