Villa Le Blanc Gran Melia pool

Villa Le Blanc, a Gran Meliá Hotel
Menorca, Spain


 


Villa Le Blanc is a jewel in Menorca’s crown, the first and only grand luxury hotel on the island and a member of Leading Hotels of the World. It is set on a scenic stretch of Menorca’s southern coast, flanked by golden beaches and within easy reach of the island’s famed walking route, Cami de Cavalls.

Villa Le Blanc offers an effortlessly stylish stay, designed with sustainability in mind. A modern take on the traditional finca, the hotel showcases sprawling sea views from its elevated, rocky perch, which is particularly beautiful at sunrise and sunset.

With this kind of natural beauty, it’s no wonder that environmental and community custodianship is at the hotel’s heart. It is also something that the Meliá brand is increasingly emphasising in its responsible tourism initiatives across its portfolio of hotels and resorts.  

Villa Le Blanc aims to reduce its environmental footprint through energy-efficient practices, waste reduction and water conservation. Moreover, it supports local communities by sourcing produce and materials locally, recruiting locals and engaging in community outreach programmes. As such, Villa Le Blanc sets the standard for sustainable hospitality on the island and is a prototype of efficiency and environmental responsibility for the whole Meliá portfolio.

Unique things to do at Villa Le Blanc include ‘personal taste’ experiences, allowing travellers to discover first-hand typical Menorcan products, participate in their production and visit some of the island’s most iconic workshops. On a journey through the senses, guests will learn about the history and know-how of several generations.

Astronomy-buffs can also take a unique trip through Menorca’s indigenous Talayotic culture – a marriage between the heavens and earth – and partake in a chance to learn more about the history and everyday life of the first settlers on the island. A visit to the Santa Ponça quarry will uncover two of the most impressive Talayotic ruins on the island.

And you can do it all sustainably too. Furthering the brand’s commitment to experiential travel, Villa Le Blanc, a Gran Meliá Hotel has joined forces with Audi to offer a sustainable option for exploring the island with a new and exclusive Audi Q8 e-tron, the brand’s 100% electric model.

Wellbeing can also be found through experiences around the hotel – such as yoga and pilates by the pool – or meditation to the sound of lapping waves. A Thai Room Spa offers relaxing treatments, therapies and mindfulness experiences.

We found this whole, natural world-inspired approach to hospitality in our whitewashed suite which offered panoramic sea views, peppered with terracotta touches and a sprawling balcony. Expansive windows framed stunning vistas of the azure Mediterranean and brought the outside in and allowed the ever-changing light to dance playfully across the room.

Thoughtfully curated details, from handcrafted ceramics to delicate maritime art, imbued each space with a unique character and a sense of place. The décor is a harmonious blend of modern luxury and rustic chic, featuring bespoke furnishings crafted from local materials that evoke the island’s artisanal heritage.

Textures in the room’s decor played a symphony here; crisp linen curtains billowed gently in the sea breeze, cool stone floors were always underfoot, and plush, inviting fabrics invited us to sink in and unwind. All the accommodations at Villa Le Blanc were a masterstroke of Mediterranean elegance and serene sophistication, an ode to the island’s natural beauty and timeless charm. Bathed in a soothing palette of whites and soft neutrals, the interiors are awash with natural light, creating an airy, serene atmosphere.

If like us, you are foodies, you will undoubtedly enjoy the culinary options at Villa Le Blanc. We feasted on freshly caught seafood at S’Amardor and pizza and paella at the stylish Nivi. We enjoyed creative cocktails at our a poolside cabana.

SAÓ (in Menorca, the term ‘Saó’ defines the state of something that has reached maturity or perfection) was an eatery that pays homage to local products and celebrates the excellence of Menorcan cuisine at its peak, in all its splendour and all its simplicity. The culinary offering here was paired with an unbeatable wine list and a fantastic selection of cheeses from Formaje, a nod to culinary craftsmanship and respect for things well done.

Villa Le Blanc is more than just a place to stay and enjoy Menorca’s natural beauty. It is a serene haven where luxury and simplicity coexist perfectly, offering a deeply immersive experience and taste of the island’s enchanting allure.
