Bon dia! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead! Today Typhoon 8 hit Hong Kong, which meant that it was a whole day spent at home and we ended up looking at our photos back in May of our quick, mini-honeymoon adventure to Menorca.
That was an amazing 3 days. The day after the wedding we jetted off to Menorca, rented a car and drove up to the town of Ciutadella. As soon as we left, we were both excited to be on this trip alone together but we also missed being with both our families all together in Barcelona. What a special moment that was, but we were also very excited to be starting a new adventure together…summer was just starting so a lot of exciting things were ahead of us… boat trips, hikes & launching our new yoga mat collection!!! Also bikini’s & crop tops again! woop! Today I wanted to show you photos and tell you a bit about our stay at Hotel Tres Sants
while we were in Ciutadella, Menorca on our “Mini”-moon trip.
When we arrived to the Hotel and were shown to our room, we noticed that each room is cutely named after a Saint, giving meaning to the name of the Hotel. We were staying in a 1st floor room called Sant Agustí
, which is the one you see on the photos, but they also have 7 other unique hotel rooms which we saw on their website and cannot wait to go back & experience the interior of another. Definitely a perfect place for a chilled honeymoon!
Each of the rooms has a different floor plan, colour scheme and layout, making everyone’s stay there unique and charming. Every corner of the hotel looked like a painting, with the aged stones and rich choice of paint colour. Even though some rooms are on higher floors and perhaps larger, our room in my opinion, was perfect enough for our simple weekend honeymoon adventure, there was a bathtub, chaise longue for cozy reading, colourful walls and exotic carpets for the perfect yoga setting and charming views both sides of the room, of their internal courtyard and of the narrow cobbled street that we entered the Hotel from. Inside the rest of the Hotel was an underground pool and sauna, a stunning atrium with a pale terracotta walls & ceiling, a large stairwell clad in local pale stones, and if you keep climbing up those stairs, it will lead you to a much smaller stairwell that takes you to a cute, hidden, tiny rooftop with deck chairs & small dining table that another couple was enjoying over a plate of cheese and wine. Up there we were overlooking the whole of Ciutadella and it literally takes your breath away. There is another terrace space within the courtyard that we can see from our hotel room, where we sat every morning to enjoy their amazing spread of Catalan breakfast, together with local pastries and cured meats. It really couldn’t be more romantic! It was just what we wanted out of a 3 day Mini-Honey Moon experience!
Ciutadella at the end of May, is a pretty quiet time of year compared to the peak summer months. Its also a bit chilly, which is perfect cuddle-weather, but we were blessed with one or two days of sun as well, which we spent on the coasts, by Menorca’s beautiful turquoise waters which we will have to blog about another time to show you where are the best beaches to go close to Ciutadella. Even though August is the typical time of year for everyone to travel to Menorca, I recommend May time, for those of you that are looking for more of a place to relax, spend time with your partner and just enjoy peaceful strolls around the historic town and being one of the few tourists around that time of year. All the museums and churches were still open for visiting and all at a walking distance from our Hotel.
There is also a little bar / cafe at one corner of the Hotel that serves the most AMAZING home-made pastries, so Miklos was in heaven!
As a conclusion we really enjoyed staying there, it was a different experience staying in a Hotel there for once, as we are used to renting the usual summer villa in the outskirts of the city, closer to the beaches. But surprisingly, in the heart of this old town it was and so relaxing, I will let the pictures speak for themselves because I think they explain the place much better than I do 🙂
Lots of love xx Alessandra + Miklos
