Why We Love It

La Residencia is a Mallorcan retreat like no other. Its nestled along the coastline of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains on the western side of Mallorca, and boasts spectacular views from all vantage points. Its location in Deia is also special; an out-of-the-way artist enclave that has been home to Joan Miro (the hotel has 33 original paintings on display) and several artists over the years. Galleries and artist studios are all just a stones throw from the hotels grounds. As a luxury hotel, it offers guests the feeling of a small intimate hotel without compromising on amenities. The spa, tennis courts, and dining outlets are all spectacular. Located close to Cala Deia, you have access to water without the cumbersome crowds in the summer.
