Belmond La Residencia is a place that knows luxury—and life—is best served chilled. Clinging to a hillside in the charming village of Deià, the hotel offers unrivalled views over the Tramuntana Mountains and the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Breathe deeply as you wander through a maze of sweet-scented citrus trees, keeping an eye out for olive groves that are older than the hotel’s historic buildings. House-made olive oil is served throughout the property's restaurants and incorporated into treatments in the award-winning spa.
The heart of Belmond La Residencia beats from two manor houses that date back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Behind the honey-colored stone walls and pale green shutters you’ll find original beams are complemented by whitewashed walls. Come summer, the cooling terracotta tiles fend off the heat of the sun.
Under the steady hand of Chef Guillermo Mendez, who has been with the hotel for almost three decades, dishes champion both Mediterranean cuisine and wine from a burgeoning local scene. While the hotel’s fine-dining options include the romantic El Olivo, you can also choose to take it easy over tapas at Café Miró. Named after the celebrated Spanish artist, you’ll find 33 of his works adorning the walls.
Art abounds in every corner here. Beyond the in-house gallery, there are over 750 original works by locals artists displayed across our rooms. Visit the studio of Alan Hydes, the hotel's resident painter, for an art class. Or create something three-dimensional with resident sculptor Juan Waelder.
