Luxury Balearic Islands Holidays

Spanish culture and island living

Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands combine cosmopolitan style with laid back, breezy charm. Beautiful Majorca is the largest island in the chain. In the west is Palma de Mallorca, one of Spain’s most attractive cities. Evidence of Moorish rule is captured in the Arabic inspired architecture and is even visible in the city’s cathedral. Nestling along the coast are some superb family friendly resorts, while the interior boasts soaring mountain ranges.

Finally, relaxing Menorca is all pine lined beaches, rural landscapes and pretty fishing villages. It’s less developed than its sister islands – perfect for those looking to get away from it all. 

Luxury holidays in the Balearic Islands

Holidays in the Balearic Islands offer a wealth of experiences you can’t get anywhere else. Each destination has its own feel; In each you’ll find isolated coves, whitewashed villas overlooking the sea and some of the best seafood. Wellness retreats are increasingly popular, making this the perfect place to learn meditation or develop your yoga skills.

Sovereign has close to 50 years’ experience in planning and operating bespoke holidays. Each one of our hotels comes personally recommended. Menorca’s Hotel Port Mahon is a classic beauty located a short walk from the centre of the island’s capital, Mahon. Here you can relax in beautiful grounds or take a drink on the colonial style terraces. In Majorca, enjoy a spot of rural idyll at the Son Brull Hotel & Spa, which is only a short drive from the island’s wild northern beaches.

Destinations in

Cala Dor bay at Cala d'Or city, Palma Mallorca Island, Spain
Majorca really earns its stripes as the most popular island in the Balearics. Beautiful beach resorts, artists’ retreats, mountain villages and a culture-packed capital city – Majorca holidays offer them all.
Landscape with Cala Macarelleta beach, Menorca island, Spain
Menorca is one of the smallest and quietest islands in the Balearics. Sandy coves and lighthouses jigsaw the coastline, sanctuaries and pine forests disappear inland, and there’s a Georgian capital.

Flight Information

Around 2 hours 15 minutes from the UK.

When to go

The Balearic Islands’ summer highs are a big part of their appeal. Spring and autumn stay warm, while summer peaks at around 29°C, with up to 11 hours of sunshine a day. Menorca tends to be a couple of degrees cooler, which works out for active types who are taking in the scenery on foot or by bike.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
