Mallorca has been delighting visitors for centuries. From its spectacularly unique culture, combining Spanish, Arab, and even Byzantine influences, to its UNESCO heritage landscapes, every part of the Balearic island is brimming with romantic energy. No wonder our Wedding Specialist, Ana Zamora, can’t stop talking about Mallorca as the honeymooner’s paradise! We recently caught up her to talk about her role as Wedding Specialist, her take on Mallorca, and what makes the island the most intimate destination on Earth:
“To plan a wedding is to take care of one of the most important days in someone's life, and we need to ensure that everything is just perfect,” Ana explains to us. “A wedding specialist should, first of all, get to know as much as possible about the bride and groom, their story, and their wishes for the Big Day.”
“The planning process can be extremely stressful, so understanding the type of atmosphere a couple would like to create for their wedding in Mallorca from the outset is very important. Usually, we spend a year planning one day, so we try our best to make it a relaxing and memorable process for the couple.
“Of course, on the wedding day, we make the bride and groom feel at ease by having everything under control and by encouraging them to enjoy the day surrounded by their loved ones. However, after a busy year planning and a day full of emotions, another, equally important milestone arrives: the honeymoon. We don’t just stop at the wedding. By helping couples find that perfect spot where they can intimately enjoy their first days of happy marriage, we perfectly conclude their wedding experience.”
For Ana, part of the idyllic Jumeriah Port Soller Hotel & Spa team, nothing quite comes close to Mallorca’s gorgeous coastline for providing that intoxicating honeymoon sensation. “Mallorca is a magnificent destination for a honeymoon, where the Mediterranean Sea marries the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana Mountains,” Ana tells us. “There’s a magical atmosphere created by the local culture and the multiple international influences that have shaped the island over time, both of which make you feel instantly connected to your surroundings. Perhaps the most romantic of Mallorca’s features is its otherworldly sunset, when the golden hour bathes the Tramuntana Mountains in a rosy glow before the dramatic colours are then reflected by the Mediterranean.”
“My favourite romantic activity is to hire a Vespa to discover the Tramuntana Mountain roads and stopping by the quaint villages of Deía, Valldemosa and Fornalutx after having lunch in the historic Sóller Valley and enjoying the sunset at Mirador de Sa Foradada. In addition, I’d recommend taking advantage of the breath-taking scenes along the coastlines, walking at dusk through the illuminated villages nestled in the Tramuntana, or even tantalising your taste buds at a wine tasting at a celebrated, local vineyard.”
“We also go the extra mile to ensure you have the most unforgettable honeymoon imaginable. The most memorable honeymoon I organised involved planning a surprise romantic dinner for a couple that had become engaged on the exact same spot years ago. The dinner was a surprise, arranged by the husband, and so we had to coordinate shipping her clothes with the groom. We also organised her favourite musician to serenade the evening. The table was set with a lavish arrangement of her favourite flowers, and the couple looked out over the sun-soaked cliffs to the Mediterranean as the sun languorously dipped into the azure waters below.”
