Welcome to Castell Son Claret,
We’re delighted to take your imagination on a tour of this exceptionally romantic wedding location. Steeped in Mallorcan history, Castell Son Claret was first founded in 1450 and received its current magical form in the 19th century. Lovingly restored and reopened as a luxury hotel in 2013, the castle is set among 326 acres of lush gardens and expansive parkland, nestled in the foothills of the awe-inspiring Tramuntana Mountains. Guests arrive along the 1000-feet palm-lined avenue to enter a different world. With its sun-kissed terraces, romantic courtyards and historic fountains, Castell Son Claret has all the hallmarks of a fairy tale wedding.
Mallorca’s central location in the Mediterranean means the island is blessed with a pleasant climate with more than 2.700 hours of sunshine a year. While you can expect average temperatures of 26°C between May and September, temperatures rarely drop beneath 13°C in early spring. Throughout the season, the unspoilt nature of the estate and its surroundings are waiting to be explored
at Castell. Fragrant almond and olive groves, vibrant lemon and orange trees, gardens bursting with the scent of lavender, rosemary and bergamot can all be enjoyed at your leisure. The gardens form an integral part of the unique Castell experience. They inspire the culinary excellence that you’ll find in our restaurant Zaranda, the only 2-star Michelin restaurant in the Balearic Islands, and our Mediterranean-influenced Olivera restaurant. Home-grown ingredients also play a leading role in our delicious seasonal cocktails, and in our beauty and spa treatments.
We only hold a small number of weddings a year, making it a truly exclusive occasion. Whether you prefer a smaller, intimate event or a larger reception in your very own castle. Our attentive, cosmopolitan staff will be entirely at your disposal. They add the passion, the skill and the attention to detail that will turn your wedding into a truly unforgettable experience.
A wedding at the Castell is more than a celebration of one special day – we’re here to create an unforgettable experience.
A stay at the Castell feels like escaping the real world, yet this piece of Mallorcan paradise is very well connected. Castel Son Claret is located just outside the village of Calvià in the west of the island, 32 km from Palma International Airport (PMI). The capital Palma can be reached in 30 minutes, and it takes only 20 minutes to get to one of the many beautiful beaches where you can tip your toes in the crystal clear sea. Or, if you feel like exploring breath-taking mountains, the UNESCO World Heritage listed Sierra de Tramuntana is a short stroll from the hotel away.
Just like the ever-changing colours of a Tramuntana sunset, no Castell wedding is alike. These luxurious, private surroundings with expansive gardens and spectacular views create a magical canvas for your very exclusive event. Our team will help you tailor your wedding to your wishes with impeccable service and outstanding gastronomic skill – it is, after all, one of the most important occasions of your lives.
“At Castell Son Claret we take great pride in our professionalism and our commitment to make you feel special and truly at home.”
SAY YES TO MAR
Mar Miralles, Event Manager and Boys Scout
If you meet a Mallorcan lady with a group of young boy scouts in the Tramuntana mountains, it might be Mar Miralles, our event manager. Because, unlike her name, Mar is in love with the mountains of the island, spends most of her weekends on the peaks or at the colorful farmers markets.
Variety, adventure and fun in the community are important for her not only at leisure time but also at work. So, it´s not surprising that Mar started her professional carrier in the event business, selling Mallorca as the ideal location for events throughout Europe.
Until she found the really perfect place for every occasion: the Castell Son Claret. It began with an internship and ended with the responsible task, among others, of organizing our first-class summer events and romantic weddings in Mallorca.
Mar´s most beautiful event: A romantic wedding at the gardens of Castell Son Claret
Event is not equal to event. To plan meetings and incentives is almost a day-to-day business. But when it comes to a wedding it´s getting very emotional even for me. I want that this day will be the most beautiful moment for the couple, a real “ones in a life time experience”.
Why couples choose Castell Son Claret for the wedding? At Castell Son Claret you do not just marry in the scenery of a castle, but you have the entire resort exclusively for yourself. The whole garden, the restaurants, terraces and the hotel belongs to the wedding couple and their guests. Nobody is disturbing and you can be sure that everything will work stress less.
When the gates to Castell Son Claret are closed, the greeting and the ceremony begins on the terraces in front of the Castell. The rippling of the river is the music. Fine food is served in the courtyard or directly in front of the hotel and the evening continues in relaxed atmosphere by the pool. I think, there is no better way to celebrate the most romantic day in life.
Why just dream of a fairy tale wedding in a castle, when your wish can become true?
