55 Santo Tomas Hotel

Brand new and beautifully-presented, with epic views and a beach close by, the 55 Santo Tomas Hotel is a sight to behold. If you’re all about the pool, you’re in luck, this place has an Olympic-sized beauty, along with another one for the kids and an indoor pool for the winter. Some of the rooms have swim-up lap pools with incredible views too. Throw in elegantly-sculpted gardens, two lovely eateries, along with a tranquil spa and fitness centre, and you have yourself a chic, idyllic abode, just a nine-minute drive from Es Migjorn Gran town.

Overview of Menorca

From the inviting azure waters of the Mediterranean to the dramatic landscapes rising from its shores, Menorca is blessed with an abundance of natural charm – not to mention year-round sun and long summer days. In small towns like Santo Tomas – home to the elegant 55 Santo Tomas Hotel – the living is easy, but on a holiday to Menorca, you’re never too far from a vibrant resort either. There’s Ciutadella on the west coast, for example, which hosts the Festes de Sant Joan every June, when the town comes alive with three days of parades, jousting competitions and pyrotechnic displays.

Things to do in Santo Tomas

The vibe here is pretty laid-back, and the area is nicely secluded from the madding crowds. It’s only a short walk from the 55 Santo Tomas Hotel down to the beach, where there are plenty of water sports and glass-bottomed boat rides available. If you fancy venturing a bit further, Mount Toro – the highest point on Menorca – is a few minutes’ drive away, and the vibrant Son Bou resort isn’t far either. There you’ll find a fabulous waterpark and wooden maze to keep you occupied by day, and late-night beach bars to hunker down in later on. In truth, it matters little if you’re looking to bliss-out and unplug from the real world, or go full-throttle and absorb all the fun in the sun you can handle. On Menorca, the pace is whatever you want it to be, and the sun is never far away.

Resort Summary

You’re within easy reach of the larger resort of Son Bou with its small waterpark and wooden maze as well as some beach bars that stay open late. Other things to do nearby include trips to bustling markets, taking part in watersports, hikes, cycle rides and boat trips.

The resort is peaceful and secluded, but still well connected by public transport. If you’ve hired a car, then lucky you! You’ll be able to dart around the island in style. Go from beach to bar, restaurant to resort, and still be back in time to catch the sunset from a terrace with a beer in hand and a belly full of fine Spanish food.
