Luxury rooms – The Sentinels launch at Cap Rocat, Mallorca

Away-from-it-all-luxury has taken on a whole new meaning with the opening up of three new suites – The Sentinels at the luxurious Cap Rocat, Mallorca.

The luxury resort that opened in 2010, has become a standard bearer for simple Mediterranean luxury.  The inspired and sensational transformation of the 19th-century sunken military fortress into a true hideaway with 25 suites was an instant hit.  Despite its martial past being clearly visible – the drawbridge, bunkers, trenches and shooting pads converted into suites – Cap Rocat embodies the spirit of peaceful, barefoot luxury.

The three new rooms were originally surveillance points hewn into the rock face of the private peninsula on which Cap Rocat stands, overlooking the Bay of Palma.

Designer Antonio Obrador, who was responsible for the rest of the hotel’s interiors, has worked his magic to create three sensationally elegant rooms that blend the rough rock of the walls with delicate woods, handmade rugs, pebble details, soft local fabrics dressing the king size beds – and large mirrors reflecting the golden light from the sea.

The Sentinels are characterised by deep privacy and a complete lack of ostentation. Each one has a private terrace, integrated into the cliffs, with Plexiglass walls for heart-stopping views over the sea, a plunge pool and outdoor seating area al fresco breakfasts. Large day beds are perfect for escaping the midday sun.
