You know our heart beats for small, individual country hotels, like the enchanting Fincahotel Sa Pletassa in the south of Mallorca. So if you also fancy having a relaxed breakfast in the morning in an idyllic oasis between palm trees and hibiscus flowers, enjoying quiet days by the beautiful pool and exploring charming places and enchanting bays from there, then we have a great tip for your next Majorca holiday.
Peaceful oasis near the sea
Our small, red Fincamobil "Fiete" chugs comfortably along the country road. The warm wind blows around our noses. Even the journey past bales of straw and idyllic countryside is a pleasure, for time and again the sea flashes deep blue on the horizon. It awakens holiday feelings. The last stretch takes us past small olive trees that line the path. Then we are there, at the Fincahotel Sa Pletassa.
Already in the car park, Babs smiles at us and greets us with her warm manner. She is the good soul of the Fincahotel Sa Pletassa and has been running the small country hotel in the south of Mallorca for 10 years.
Romantic oasis in dreamlike silence
Hotel Sa Pletassa is a romantic oasis straight out of a picture book. There are winding corners everywhere, an archway here, a romantic natural stone wall there. Heavenly peace surrounds the country hotel - only the chirping of the crickets interrupts the silence. Everywhere it blossoms and greens. Lush palm trees and pines dominate the picture around the green garden, which is lovingly laid out. The two chickens Frieda & Gloria cluck in the bushes and cat Motzi blinks sleepily from her spot in the sun. Bright red hibiscus blossoms and purple bougainvillea form beautiful splashes of colour in the garden, in the middle of which the large pool splashes refreshingly. Sa Pletassa is a true paradise! You notice immediately that Babs has an eye for detail and always makes sure that the guests' gaze is always set on unadulterated enjoyment.
Large pool with comfortable daybeds
On the numerous loungers or the romantic two daybeds, you can enjoy a relaxing day at Finca Sa Pletassa. You quickly forget the time while doing nothing in this wonderful oasis, from which you also have a beautiful view of the blue sea on the horizon. By the way: the small finca hotel has just nine rooms, which are more or less distributed around the 15-metre-long pool.
Great start to the day...
The day starts at Sa Pletassa with a delicious breakfast and a variety of egg dishes to your liking. In the shade of the trees and with a view of the romantic garden and swimming pool all the way to the distant sea, you can relax and make plans for the day while you fortify yourself with various types of bread, pastries, fruit, cheese and cold meats.
Host with passion
Babs is the perfect host of the country hotel Sa Pletassa, who runs the small hotel with a lot of love and passion. Unobtrusive and yet very attentive, she lovingly looks after the well-being of her guests. She asks about their well-being here or shares her tips for great excursions in the region there. Those who want to spend a day at the finca after breakfast can order snacks such as tortillas, caprese salad or pamboli in the morning, which are then ready for the guests from noon onwards. After consultation with the guests, there are currently also dinners twice a week at the finca. And for the other evenings, Babs has many great tips for good restaurants very close to Finca Sa Pletassa.
The country hotel is in an absolutely perfect location. It is only two kilometres to the sea, which you can even see from the finca. The charming towns of Cala d'Or, Felanitx and Santanyi are a short drive away. For a day at the beach, every guest will find a pretty basket bag with towels in their room. Parasols are also available for guests to borrow for their day at the beach. But there is also all kinds of equipment for the pool to pass the time.
We explore the lively harbour of Cala d'Or in the evening. We have a delicious Italian meal at La Scala and drink a cocktail under the stars. But after all the hustle and bustle, we look forward to our heavenly quiet oasis at Sa Pletassa in the evening. The garden is lovingly illuminated and under the lush palm trees with a view of the starry sky, we let the holiday day end in a very relaxed way.
For whom is the Sa Pletassa the right hotel?
If you are looking for a very small and quiet hotel close to the sea and villages, the Sa Pletassa is the perfect choice. Even though the Fincahotel Sa Pletassa is not a typical family hotel and the indescribable tranquillity is in the foreground, the hotel can be booked equally by families and couples. There is a spacious family room with 2 bedrooms, but an extra bed for a child can also be comfortably placed in the double rooms. For example, we had the romantic double room "Minorca" with a gallery and enough space for an extra bed (sofa bed) on ground floor. The terrace of this room is also very private, so that children can play here in peace.
Babs is a really great host - not only for the older guests. Our son also felt completely at home on the finca. We also recommend Sa Pletassa to families with children, so that they can spend unforgettable holidays on Mallorca in a really beautiful and quiet atmosphere.
