BELMOND LA RESIDENCIA
History and Story
The heart of Belmond La Residencia beats from two manor houses that date back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Behind the honey-coloured stone walls and pale green shutters you’ll find original beams are complemented by whitewashed walls. Come summer, the cooling terracotta tiles fend off the heat of the sun. Belmond La Residencia is a place that knows luxury—and life—is best served chilled. Clinging to a hillside in the charming village of Deià, the hotel offers unrivalled views over the Tramuntana Mountains and the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
