Mallorca seems to have been tailor-made for sports lovers. Golf, cycling, tennis, running, triathlon... The island's exceptional climate paired with a challenging terrain and spectacular landscapes makes it a world reference when planning top-level sporting events and, of course, an essential meeting point for great professionals and sport enthusiasts from all around the world.
A destination for athletes
The island offers amazing hidden gems, intense races and challenging routes. But the most surprising thing encountering those visiting Mallorca to train for the first time is the combination of vast plains and challenging mountains with the Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop, serving as a sports venue as well as a place to relax.
The Serra de Tramuntana, the north coast of the island and the so-called "pla" – the inland area – are important training locations for the great international cycling teams, and indispensable to those who come to the island to prepare routes, golf tournaments, tennis championships and triathlon events.
Apart from the challenges set by the very nature of the island, one of the things that athletes appreciate the most when they arrive for their yearly visits is the quality of service on Mallorca. Beyond the impressive scenery and mild climate, they all praise the island as being one of the best destinations when it comes to offering excellent hotels specialising in athletes.
At Zafiro Hotels we have always welcomed the challenge of designing hotels that can meet every client’s needs. That is why our hotels for athletes on Mallorca are tailor-made to those who demand the best, striving to be the best: areas for individual and team training, gym, wellness and spa areas, special menus, rooms for press conferences and conferences, workshop and garage for bikes, and more. Always with personalised service.
Discounts for athletes
We also want to make it possible for all athletes who visit us to have a couple of days off as a couple or with family. Zafiro Hotels always present hotel offers on Mallorca in connection with various sporting events and trials.
Here we can mention our hotel offers for triathlon events such as IRONMAN Mallorca, for example. It is one of the most famous sporting events on the island and a European reference within the world of triathlon.
There are also special offers for groups and sports teams, especially linked to cycling on Mallorca, such as the Zafiro Palace Alcudia and the Zafiro Tropic. These hotels have bike stations available as part of their facilities, with bike workshops and garages, spare-part shops and even training routes.
All these advantages have also made Mallorca the perfect location to organise sporting events. So much so that it currently has a calendar packed with sporting events at the highest level. Take note of everything to look forward to in Mallorca 2021.
