Cap Rocat is a luxury hotel built inside the high stone walls of a historical fortress. Declared both a Heritage Asset and a National Monument, the experience allows you to explore Majorca’s treasures without leaving the comforts of your room. Renovated by Antonio Obrador’s studio, the hotel is embellished with antiquity and intricacy. Designed in order to set the path for a spiritual journey of exploration and adventure combined with harmony and reflection, Cap Rocat is the perfect escape for anyone: families, friends or couples.

Central to the values of Cap Rocat is its respect and love for nature. The fortress is surrounded by a grand landscape of rock formations and quiet waters and is a Special Protection Area for Birds. The songs and lullabies of many bird species can be heard from the balconies, and the biodiversity of the surrounding area allows you to view the elegant and graceful products of nature.

The hotel also boasts two awarding winning Mediterranean cuisines, ‘The Sea Club’ and ‘La Fortaleza.’ Both restaurants showcase Majorcan culture and culinary expertise, taking pride in the island’s local and organic products to create exquisite meals. Visit the Sea Club to satisfy your thirst for traditional and refreshing dishes and sizzling recipes brought straight out of the wood-fired grills. Designed to serve only 30 diners at a time, the restaurant ensures that intimacy and the family-like experience is present even during dining. La Fortaleza, on the other hand, headed by chef Victor Garcia, features unique twists and innovative techniques on traditional Mediterranean delights. Classical live Spanish music is performed in the evenings and the restaurants both overlook the soothing waters. Many awards have been won including the Balearic Islands Food Critics Awards for the Best Hotel Cuisine in 2012.
