In the fall of 2012 we visited Mallorca and were so infatuated with its charm and natural beauty, we decided to return to Spain and explore another one of the Balearic Islands. Menorca is situated just north of Mallorca and is is its considerably smaller sister with a total population of less than 100,000 people. The vibe here is much more laid back and on the whole, its landscape is untouched by major tourist development (our only criticism of Mallorca).
Our chosen home during our stay on Menorca is a small boutique hotel called Torralbenc. Recently created by the force behind the stunning Cap Rocat on Malloraca, Torralbenc is a former farmhouse that has been renovated and expanded into a rustic, yet very sophisticated resort property. It features 27 beautifully furnished rooms, a chic restaurant with a Michelin-star chef, an infinity pool, workout facilities, and gorgeously maintained grounds with incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Every detail has been considered and contributes to the great success of Torralbenc – from the attentive staff to the ultra relaxing atmosphere. Each morning we enjoy a delightful breakfast on the sun filled patio as we gaze at the Mediterranean waters in the distance. Afternoons are spent poolside or exploring the charming towns and spectacular beaches just minutes away. Evening meals in the restaurant have been memorable experiences and keep us going back.
Overall our stay here (thankfully we still have a few days) has been well beyond expectations and has allowed us to relax and fully absorb the beauty of this magical island. We will be back!
