Authentic agrotourism in a bohemian setting
In the south of the island of Menorca, in the heart of the countryside, is where you’ll find the new hotel Menorca Experimental.
The hotel is a former farm property, a 19th century finca, recently transformed into a chic retreat by the Experimental Group team in collaboration with the French designer Dorothée Meilichzon. Surrounded by pines, juniper, and wildflowers, the whitewashed buildings have been carefully restored by local architects and artisans. The hotel is decorated “like an artist’s retreat”. The designer opted for a palette of soft colors, from pale blue to golden yellow and orange. The spaces are spacious and open, with rustic floors made of dry stone, waxed concrete, and untreated wood.
The main building houses 34 rooms with a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel also offers 9 small independent villas with private swimming pools. The rooms are elegant and refined design-wise and offer a certain minimalism, blending contemporary furniture and traditional materials. Dorothée’s distinctive style is very present through the play on colourful shapes and the must-see bed headboards.
Like with all the group’s addresses, the restaurant occupies a central part of the hotel, offering indoor and outdoor dining areas, with chef Sylvain Roucayrol at the helm. The Mediterranean-flavored cuisine focuses on seasonal organic produce from the island and the hotel’s vegetable garden. Exclusive cocktails are served in a lounge area around the infinity pool.
Hiking, horseback riding, yoga and pottery classes can be practiced on site.
