The island-loving jet set of Europe now has a new Mallorca hideaway. Cap Rocat, on a protected promontory on the southern flank of the Bay of Palma, is a 19th-century military fortress that has been converted into one of the region’s more remarkable hotels. Twenty minutes from Palma, the sprawling structure is almost completely buried and all but imperceptible from both land and sea. Only the canopies of the lounges on the terrace are visible on the horizon. The entire fortress has been converted into a boutique hotel with 24 luxury rooms and maintains 2 kilometers of private coastline. Much of the detail of the fort was retained and restored in order to preserve the heritage of the place. The former shooting pads were converted into suites, each with their own private patio and terraces, and the fortress’ former kitchen has been converted to a private kitchen exclusively for wine tastings and cooking lessons.
