The Best of the Best 2003: Resorts - The St. Regis Mardavall Resort Mallorca

<< Back to Robb Report, June 2003

Usually, the less said about bathrooms the better, but those of the St. Regis Mardavall Resort Mallorca on Spain’s Mallorca Island provide vivid examples of the resort’s attention to detail. The unique stone-and-wood facilities are equipped with granite washstands and showers with no unsightly drains; instead, water disappears through an unobtrusive slit. Other thoughtful features include defogging mirrors, heated floors, tubs with LCD TVs, and light kimonos and plush robes.

Beyond the baths is a spa with Turkish baths and Finnish saunas; two fine restaurants, Es Fum and S’Aiga; and Churchill’s, a cigar lounge with billiard tables and a card room. If you need a shirt ironed or shoes shined before you head out, your butler will handle it. Should you prefer to dine on your terrace and admire the sea view, you can order from the 24-hour in-room menu.
