Reads Spa & Hotel, Santa Maria del Cami

A hotel with beautiful landscape gardens and traditional furnishings

"Excellent" 12 Verified Reviews trust you logo
Location 86 / 100 Location is great.

Reads is a privately owned, totally unique hotel with just 23 rooms. Situated at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains it is surrounded by 20,000 m2 of landscaped gardens and its own vineyard, beautiful countryside and utter peace and tranquillity yet is just 15 minutes by car or 20 minutes by train from the magic city of Palma.

The rooms are elegantly furnished without being too fussy. All rooms have king size beds, televisions and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The majority of bedrooms also have their own private terrace with sunbeds.

The highlight of the hotel is the Vespasian Spa. The services on offer are exceptional and include nutritional consultants, life coaches, healthy cooking Master-classes, fitness trainer, yoga instructor and professional spa therapists. The spa also host all the facilities you would expect to find such as a steam room, ice room, sauna, sensation showers and gym.

The hotel has its own restaurant which serves a wide variety of Mediterranean dishes. They change the menu every two days so you'll never get board of the food.

The ultimate relaxation experience.

Who should go

Great for cyclists looking for a little added luxury on their Mallorcan cycling holiday! Whether you a professional or an amateur this hotel caters for all and even offers cycle hire.

The Neighbourhood

The closest town to the hotel is Santa Maria. This traditional market town hosts its own market on a Sunday and is one of the largest and most popular on the island. Only a 20 minute walk from the hotel.

The Pool

The Vespasian Spa has three pools, one outdoor, one indoor and a hydro-pool. Whilst the outdoor pool provides a great spot to relax and enjoy the sunshine with ample tree shade and sun loungers, the hydro-pool is great for those that need to relax after a hard day in the saddle, with lumbar, neck and shoulder jets.

The Bar

The Browns Bar is located in a room dating back to the 17th century, which was originally for the storage of the produce of the surrounding land so it was built with a roof 10 metres high to keep it cool. Now its huge walls have become one wonderful canvas upon which a talented artist has created the most beautiful frescoes.

The Restaurant

The Blues Brasserie offers lunch and dinner 7 days a week. From set menus to an extensive A la Carte menu with Chefs recommendations the restaurant caters to all tastes. In the summer the restaurant is situated on the Pergola terrace overlooking the pool and gardens.


Visitor comments

  • "The Mallorcan version of an English country house hotel converted from an imposing 16th-century olive pressing farm. There are 12 unique rooms offering total privacy and genuine comfort, and an attractive pool. No beach nearby." - Condé Nast Traveller
  • "It is unique in that it is the personal creation of Mr Read and Family (the pictoral story of the buildings conversion to a hotel, found in the Bar, is a treat) and manages to retain a homely atmosphere whilst having friendly attentive service from the small team." - Trip Advisor
