Beach: Jumeirah Port Soller, Mallorca, Spain

14 of 63

Jumeirah’s first hotel in continental Europe takes full advantage of the untapped potential of Port de Soller, a quiet fishing village just a half-hour’s drive north of the island’s capital. Aside from the hairpin approach up the Tramuntana Mountains, everything here exudes calm. On a rugged promontory, sweet-smelling orange groves fringe 11 low-slung buildings, where 120 rooms all have private terraces that look onto the Balearic Sea. When we weren’t lounging by the infinity pool or getting an ayurvedic massage at the three-story spa, we ventured down to the village to stroll the café-lined promenade and ride the vintage tram, which shuttles sun-kissed passengers along the horseshoe-shaped bay. jumeirah.com. $$$
