Spain is enjoying growing interest from Americans and Canadians. The fact that airlines offer direct flights between cities such as New York and Málaga or from Vancouver to Barcelona contributes to this.
Following the success of the United route between New York and Mallorca in recent summers, a prestigious American financial newspaper has recommended the Balearic Islands as a must-visit destination for 2024. But that’s not all; The Wall Street Journal has also highlighted specific hotels where travellers can enjoy the best stays.
In an extensive article, The Wall Street Journal emphasises a noticeable shift in tourism in the Balearic Islands: from nights of revelry to a focus on well-being and nature. This transformation makes the archipelago an attractive destination for a broader audience, seeking a more refined holiday experience.
Recommended stays on Mallorca
On Mallorca, the largest island in the Balearic Islands, the newspaper recommends two exceptional hotels. Hotel Zel de Palmanova in Calvià, a collaboration between tennis legend Rafa Nadal and the Meliá hotel chain, offers a unique stay experience. Additionally, Son Bunyola, the luxurious hotel owned by British billionaire Richard Branson located in the stunning Serra de Tramontana, is recommended. With only 26 rooms and three independent villas, this hotel offers an exclusive escape.
Relaxation on Menorca
For the ultimate relaxing vacation on Menorca, The Wall Street Journal recommends staying at Son Vell, located near Ciutadella. This stately home offers relaxing activities such as yoga sessions and open-air cinema. Another recommendation is Vestige, part of the chain owned by Dr. Víctor Madera, founder of Quirónsalud. Here, guests can enjoy serene tranquility.
Luxury on Ibiza
For those looking to explore Ibiza, the “White Island,” another stately home is recommended, this time in the heart of the city. The five-star hotel Mirador de Salt Vila, part of the Relais & Châteaux chain, offers luxury and elegance in a prime location.
These recommendations from The Wall Street Journal highlight the versatility and richness of the Balearic Islands as a travel destination. From Mallorca’s majestic mountains to Menorca’s soothing retreats and Ibiza’s urban luxury, the Balearic Islands offer something for everyone. This endorsement by one of the world’s leading newspapers marks the Balearic Islands as a top destination for 2024. A true paradise, ideal for travelers seeking both relaxation and refinement.
