The Viva Cala Mesquida Suites and Spa is an adults-only hotel in Majorca’s sleepy Cala Mesquida region. Surrounded by rolling hills, the hotel offers up plenty in the way of seclusion. But it’s also just a five-minute walk from the resort’s namesake beach – a milky, sandy stretch edged by pine trees.
Taking centre-stage in the hotel’s well-tended gardens is a lagoon-like swimming pool. It’s flanked by palm trees, loungers and parasols, and is connected to a neighbouring bar by a little bridge. Here, you can get cold drinks and cocktails throughout the day, plus light bites like toasties and stone-baked pizzas.
