The aim of the adults-only hotel? To offer grown-ups an out-of-the-ordinary getaway. It’s generally characterized by a calm, atmospheric ambience, with rather upscale services. Often decorated in a refined manner, the emphasis is placed on all services centered on relaxation and fun: spa, massages, private pools, trendy bars and restaurants… And often, a heavenly setting!

In practice, in an adults-only hotel, you can expect to find :

  • Couples rather than families;
  • A spa rather than a kids’ club;
  • Refined cuisine rather than an all-you-can-eat buffet;
  • Deckchairs instead of a playground;
  • A cocktail bar rather than a refreshment bar.

Get the idea? The adults-only hotel will delight epicureans, aesthetes, lovers of fine experiences and comfort… and lovers!

  • 📌 Location: Palma de Mallorca
  • 💙 We love: the skybar and its breathtaking view

Majorca is an island with two faces. On the front, of course, are Palma’s wild nights, world-famous clubs and lively beaches. On the flip side, splendid wild landscapes and authentic villages reveal themselves as soon as you venture a little further afield. Now imagine for a moment that these two facets come together, with an added touch of luxury and well-being. The perfect recipe for an invigorating romantic weekend, wouldn’t you say?

To do so, head for the adults-only, all-inclusive AluaSoul Carolina hotel on the island’s east coast. The first thing that catches your eye on arrival? The breathtaking panoramas found throughout the hotel. Crystal-clear seas, pine umbrellas clinging to the rocks: your room’s picture window alone is a picture postcard!

But if you want to immerse yourself even further in the setting, head for the skybar. The view is magnificent and the cocktails are a treat. There’s no shortage of delights in this adults-only hotel: swimming pool, spa, restaurant with a view, beach just around the corner… Not forgetting the typical Mallorcan festive touch for night owls!

  • 📌 Location: Porto
  • 💙 We love: the exhibitions in the hotel, featuring young Portuguese artists

For your next romantic weekend away, do you fancy a vibrant urban getaway? Porto is just what you’ve been dreaming of! The city manages the minor miracle of being as trendy as it is authentic, and when night falls, it becomes downright romantic. Cruises on the Douro, Fado concerts, charming restaurants, art galleries… Porto is a feast for all the senses, and has more than one trick up its sleeve to make your romantic weekend unforgettable.

All you need is a beautiful adults-only hotel to complete your romantic getaway. Just what you need: we’ve unearthed a real gem: the Casa do Conto & Tipografia. This boutique hotel has just ten rooms, making it the perfect intimate setting. We love its sharp but warm look, with a mix of design architecture, clean lines and beautiful vintage pieces . Here, even the ceilings are genuine works of contemporary art!

Centrally located, yet sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the city, La Casa is a veritable little bubble in which to take refuge after a hectic day in Porto. You’ll spend sweet moments together in the pool, at the bar or in the shade of the orchard. You’ll love this stylish setting for your romantic weekend! See this hotel

Close your eyes and imagine wild coves, splendid sunsets, picturesque tavernas… You’ve got everything you need for the perfect romantic weekend, don’t you?

Finding a hotel to match the beauty of Crete (and your love!) may seem difficult. And yet we have just the address you’ve been dreaming of: Domes Aulus Elounda. This adults-only hotel is a veritable little Eden out of time. Let your gaze wander to the horizon, and contemplate the beauty of the wild landscapes that surround it. The hotel’s discreetly refined architecture blends in perfectly, making the sea the real highlight of the show.

Everything here is conducive to reverie and relaxation (with a special mention for the soft decor of the rooms). There’s no doubt about it: you’ll return from your romantic getaway in Crete with stars in your eyes… See this hotel
