We tend to have a fuzzy idea of what the Balearic Islands and Majorca actually look like. The biggest of the three islands is full of contrasts: In some places, it is heaven on earth, in others, there’s only buildings to see. Then you discover Déia, a jewel at sea that offers the most Instagram-worthy creek along with a hotel mixing local architecture with a contemporary touch. And guess who was the first to invest in the place? You got it: Richard Bronson! This billionaire with a vision has had his heart set on this gem since the mid-80s – and there are no coincidences. Acquired by the Belmond group (part of LVMH), the hotel has been redesigned to its full potential. Like many hotel managers, Jaime Trias has understood the desires of today’s customers. With a local cuisine originating from a garden of 300-year-old olive trees (decorated with sculptural works and an astonishing art gallery), the hotel is characterized by its stripped down interior design : Second-hand furniture, fabrics inspired by local culture… The kind of details that would make this hotel the perfect self-quarantine spot. You might be happy to know that traffic between the islands is slowly picking up, before connection with mainland can finally come back to normal soon.
