  • Overview

    Nestled amidst its own 12-hectare gardens, this 12-room country getaway is located near Mahon in Menorca. The hotel is housed in an 18th-century farmhouse that brims with rustic charm - think beamed ceilings, warm hues and the odd exposed stone or brick wall. Heightening the effect, many of the building’s original features have been carefully preserved over the years and still stand beautifully today.

    Sant Joan de Binissaida is dedicated to sustainable living, with much of its energy being generated by solar power. Its gardens have been reforested with lofty pine trees and fragrant olive trees, while the centuries-old waterwheel has been restored to its former glory and continues to work today.

    For an added dose of character, the boutique hideaway is still a working farm - don’t be surprised if you spot a grazing sheep through your window! 


    When all the sun-soaking gets too much, cool off in the glittering outdoor pool. Alternatively, head inside and make use of the many board games, ping pong table and other games on offer at the hotel. 

    Travelling with the kids? There is a little playground for them to play in, and the grounds are ripe for games and exploring. 


    The food at Sant Joan de Binissaida is not done by halves; the fine dining restaurant serves up local fare, using ingredients grown in the estate’s own gardens or sourced from local farms and fishermen. Better yet, there is a sun-trap of a terrace where you can enjoy your meal in the warmer months.

    A good continental breakfast is served in the mornings and is included in most room rates (see rate detail below).
