Wake Up Here: The Pink Pepper Tree Home Hotel, Spain

Mallorca is the postcard-perfect gem of the Mediterranean boasting long, hot summers, exceptional turquoise waters and charming sandstone villages. Mallorca’s landscapes seduce the senses. Dramatic cliffs transform into sweeping mountains and flat grasslands, silvery-green leaves of olive groves contrast the sandy red earth at the island’s centre and sheep graze lazily in sun soaked paddocks.

Mallorca has been able to shake off its’ party-vibe reputation to make way as a cultural hotspot. Beyond the treasures of Mallorca’s capital, Palma, lie a wealth of relaxing getaways. With a stay at The Pink Peppertree, you’ll feel right at home.

Set on the outskirts of the sleepy village of Lloseta centred in the Spanish island of Mallorca rests an idyllic home hotel that feels like an entirely different world to the partying holiday scene in Magaluf. The Pink Peppertree Home Hotel oozes rustic appeal with a lived-in atmosphere that leaves you feeling instantly at peace. From the moment you enter the hotel grounds, you are welcomed by Jacqueline and Glynn, a Dutch/South African duo who own and manage the hotel.

Set within the stoney walls of a traditional finca (a traditional farmhouse) dating back to 1570, the hotel has eight airy bedrooms which have been lovingly restored with recycled wood features and a tinge of humour. Leather Moroccan poufs, wicker and velvet armchairs and woven mats give a homely feel to the communal living space as you enter the finca, all adding to the charm of this peaceful stay.

Food and wine demand the spotlight here at The Pink Peppertree. While not specifically an agritourism hotel, the gardens on site are abundant with organic homegrown produce that is used in dishes encompassed throughout your stay. Embracing the Spanish schedule, breakfast is served daily from 9-11am with a variety of light and healthy meals including homemade jams and freshly squeezed juices, all created lovingly from locally sourced and grown ingredients.

Jacqueline is a food enthusiast and a brilliant cook, preparing surprise three course dinners three times a week. Made from a variety of fresh produce grown in the hotels gardens including pomegranate, almonds, citrus fruits and tomatoes, the dishes are some of the most delicious on the island. Dishes change every meal as Jacqueline plans based on seasonal ingredients and availability at the local market.

Wine aficionados will be delighted to discover a wide range of brilliant drops from local bodegas across the island. Many specialise in organic and natural wines, and Glynn, a wine connoisseur himself is only too happy to help you find the perfect glass, whether it’s for relaxing by the pool with a book or to complement Jacqueline’s excellent home cooked cuisine.

Ideal for those seeking a restorative break, the hotel offers a range of wellness and relaxation packages including yoga and massage, as well as serene gardens surrounding a pool and hammocks. 

For a rejuvenating stay that feels like you’re in the comfort of your own home with a wealth of luxuries, The Pink Peppertree Home Hotel is the ideal adults-only stay.
