Hotel Cristine Bedfor lives by a plastic-free philosophy, and you'll notice this in all the details. For example, instead of plastic water bottles, you'll receive glass bottles, which you can refill with taps around the property offering filtered water, plus each unit gets a reusable tote bag if you go shopping. The hotel also uses native plant species in its elaborate garden, which reduces water consumption.

On top of these efforts, Cristine Bedfor offers an authentic experience, as the property owner developed the hotel's concept herself with the help of her designer friend, spending years collecting all the antique furnishings and room decor. Enjoy your breakfast served in the inner courtyard garden. And for other meals, the local favorite Restaurante Ses Forquilles is behind the menu of the on-site eatery, which uses regional ingredients to craft dishes meant to "awaken the senses." Other unique highlights include a yoga lawn, an outdoor patio and picnic spot, bicycle rentals, beach kits, and an outdoor pool surrounded by the garden.

The house's 21 rooms feature warm and inviting interiors with colorful textiles, decor, and elements, all working together to create a truly comfortable space. All units come with fresh flowers, embroidered sheets, and unique details that bring the relaxed island vibes right into the room, like wicker furniture, woven rugs, and wispy curtains. Suites and Superior rooms add sofas, and some units, like Cristine's Choice, have direct access to the garden and a private patio. Learn more
