Cap Rocat Fortress Overview

The rare experience of sleeping in a former military fortress goes to a higher level with the Cap Rocat Suites. 

These large rooms located in the first inner circle of the fortress, occupy a series of coastal defense batteries within the perimeter of Cap Rocat. The suites have a unique interior design that blends an elegant bedroom with a living area and a spacious bathroom with vaulted ceilings.

Every Cap Rocat Suite has three different terraces, at different levels, where guests can savour breakfast, rest on its hammocks or gaze upon the boats that wander the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean from each private gazebo.

The Former Fortress Kitchen:

The Fortress’ former kitchen, in typical Mallorcan style, has been refurbished to offer a private dining room, where wine tastings are organized.



The sea, and the different swimming areas which have been set up around the former pier, are all part now of a natural reserve, and they are exceptional spots to enjoy the fantastic and crystal clear Mediterranean sea.

The spectacular infinity swimming pool with salt water is located on one of the walls of the former fortress. The water blends in with the sea and the sky, on a spectacular spot, with views over the whole bay of Palma.

The Terrace

Located above the Fortress Hall, the panoramic terrace is an excellent area for the organization of a cocktail during the warm summer evenings and with stunning panoramic views of the bay of Palma.


The former fortress halls have become relaxing areas, where different scenarios have been recreated, together with private lounges for exclusive use of our guests. In summer, the former patios are transformed into pleasant lounges where one can enjoy the warm summer nights.
