Almond Blossom Magic on Mallorca

The winter season has to be my favourite on the island: perfect weather to go hiking and the almond trees in the fields are blossoming. I just love the pink flowers growing on almond trees between January and March.

“When an almond tree became covered with blossoms in the heart of winter, all the trees around it began to jeer. ‘What vanity,’ they screamed, ‘what insolence! Just think, it believes it can bring spring in this way!’ The flowers of the almond tree blushed for shame. ‘Forgive me, my sisters,’ said the tree. ‘I swear I did not want to blossom, but suddenly I felt a warm springtime breeze in my heart.” ― Nikos Kazantzakis, Saint Francis

Unique Instagram-worthy Hotel in Mallorca

My friend Chloe from Pink Flamingo Marketing invited me to join her for a little drink by the pool at the most beautiful and unique hotel I’ve seen on the island: Ten Mallorca in Sineu.

This hotel is the perfect location to get some Insta photos (of course life is not all about Instagram but lots of us are guilty of choosing a place for the photos we can get there, admit it!).

I loved Ten Mallorca because every room is different and has its own character. They created different ambiance in each corner and everything looks amazing!

The pool is also a big hit! Who wouldn’t dream to sip cocktails and go for a swim in this dreamy location ? If you’re looking for a beautiful place where you can relax, this is the perfect one !

Chloe is organising a one-day marketing retreat at Ten Mallorca on February 28th, you can find more info by clicking here. I’m so sad I’ll miss it as I will be flying back from France on that day.

I can’t wait to go back there ! What’s your favourite hotel on the island ?
