The 24-room Cap Rocat resort opened in June inside a converted 19th-century military fortress along Majorca’s Bay of Palma. Set on a peninsula 15 minutes from the city of Palma—capital of Spain’s Balearic Islands—the hotel blends with the landscape and is nearly imperceptible from the sea. From the hotel’s guest rooms, however, the views are undeniable: Each room features an outdoor patio that offers sweeping vistas of the Mediterranean.

Cap Rocat’s guest rooms—many fashioned out of old munitions stores—connect to the resort’s two restaurants, gym, library, and other public spaces via stone ramps and alleyways. The entire property benefits from the deft hand of local architect Antonio Obrador, who incorporated whimsical touches that suggest the hotel’s past: Stylized bullets act as door handles, gun carriages serve as cocktail tables, and an old gunpowder depot offers an intimate area for private parties.

Not that one could mistake Cap Rocat for army barracks. Specially commissioned Roba de Llengües patterned textiles brighten the resort’s comfortable interiors, while tennis courts, an infinity-edge pool, and sailing excursions ensure that guests regularly depart from their quarters.
