The beautiful Balearics may have gained fame as a place for partygoers. But there’s another side to Mallorca—a side that’s altogether quieter and more sophisticated. Where late nights are traded for early mornings filled with salt water swims and hilltop hikes.
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. Our housemade olive oil is served throughout our 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-coloured 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.
Should you wish to explore, the hotel is cradled by UNESCO-protected countryside which entices hikers. Guests can also venture out on two wheels with a professional cyclist as a guide. Those in search of something a little more high octane should explore via vespa—we’ll even pack a picnic for you.Gastronomy is, after all, our pride and joy. Under the steady hand of Chef Guillermo Mendez, who has been with the hotel for almost three decades, we 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 our in-house gallery, there are over 750 original works by locals artists displayed across our rooms. Visit the studio of Alan Hydes, our resident painter, for an art class. Or create something three-dimensional with resident sculptor Juan Waelder. Our bi-annual art competition supports emerging artisans from the community. It’s this kind of commitment to our environment that has led locals to call us La Res. We hope you will too.

Deià is a privileged enclave. The village nestles between the Mediterranean Sea and the Tramuntana mountains, with the Teix peak being the highest mountain you can see rising up behind the hotel. Every season of the year is magical here. In summer the coast is inviting, whether it is to take a boat trip, go fishing, diving, swimming, or to simply soak up the sun or have a drink or a meal of fresh fish at the beach bar. In the cooler months, the local hills and mountains are wonderful for walks, hike or climb - depending on one’s individual capabilities.
The village itself, although it receives visits by many tourists in the summer, has remained unchanged by tourism. The locals still maintain their customs and celebrate the local “fiestas” unperturbed by foreign onlookers. When the sunsets and the visitors leave, the village returns to its former tranquillity with locals meeting in the bars for a quiet drink and to catch up on the day’s news.One “community” which now forms an integral part of the village life is that of the artists. Several decades ago artists who visited Deià in order to reflect on canvas the beautiful natural setting, decided to make this idyllic place their permanent home. Over the years many more have joined them, together with writers and poets, who now form a well-established community. One of the earliest of such writers to make his permanent home in Deià was Robert Graves. He found inspiration in the mountains and is buried in the local cemetery, which you will find by the church on the hilltop.
