Es Raco d’Arta, Mallorca

ORIGINS & PHILOSOPHY

natural – authentic – respectful

Es Raco d’Arta is a living dream of two friends, Antoni Esteva and Jaume Danus and their families. The old ‘finca’ dating back to the 13th century has passed through different families over generations. They have all been closely connected to the land and dedicated to agriculture. In the 1960s when tourism got a foothold on the island, many of the old fincas were abandoned for new tourism projects, and this was also the case for Es Racó.
Unearthing the abandoned finca awakened a dream in Antoni and Jaume; a dream of returning it to its origins, restoring the finca and bringing back alive the long-lost Mallorca they knew from childhood; a Mallorca where nature, architecture, culture and gastronomy were deeply rooted and intertwined in everyday life.

LIFE IN ES RACÓ

connected – creative – peaceful – joyous

Nestled adjacent to the LLevant Natural Park in a serene valley, protected by the mountains and only a stone’s throw from the picturesque village of Artà and the turquoise Mediterranean Sea, Es Raco d’Artà provides a peaceful nest for the exploration of our interconnectedness with nature, conscious living and holistic wellbeing.

The architecture of Es Raco embraces the natural elements of the land, and in doing so it invites each one of its visitors to connect deeply within; within our own natural landscape of feelings, sensations and emotions. Offering a variety of different experiences, guided by accomplished practitioners, Es Raco d’Artà combines natural beauty and unspoiled nature with a palate of sights, sounds, tastes, aromas and textures, inviting guests to connect through all their senses while embodying the healing experience of being natural.

Life in Es Raco is informal and relaxed with a heart-felt approach to everything we do. We give space to authenticity rather than pretence, and we seek to understand rather than to judge. Connecting with nature allows us to feel the elements, which show us ways of finding peace, healing, and inspiration within.

FINDING YOUR PATH

explore the mystery of being human – the path of self-discovery – unlocking human potential – discovering your soul purpose – transforming your life

Authenticity is the guiding principle behind every offering and experience at Es Racó. More than just give back some of what contemporary life seems to take away; we would like to introduce a different perspective, a different way of being that may help to reconnect with the healer and visionary we all have within. Our wish is for you to find your path of self-discovery and from there explore your fullest potential.

THE LAND AND HER OFFERING

interconnectedness – harmonious – organic

The finca stretches over 185 hectare of natural land including beautiful mountains and forests of oak trees, wild olive trees, carob, pines and the odd cypress. The farmed land is home to our 14-hectare ecological vineyard, some 1200 olive trees, 200 different fruit trees, a field of indigenous xeixa, our 2000 m2 organic vegetable garden and the aromatic herbal garden. We produce our own olive oil and organic xeixa flour. Adding to that we also engage in beekeeping, which means you will have fresh honey for breakfast.

It goes without saying that everything is ecological, we do not apply anything to the land which did not come out of her, our farm is natural and ecological. We believe in cycles and balance of giving and receiving and therefore we have a recycling plan that helps us give back to the earth part of what it gives us.

FROM LAND TO TABLE

healthy – balanced – seasonal – generous

We feel love and respect for our land and we express it in many ways, one way being through the food we serve. Our dishes are full of love and tradition to nourish us, move us and give us balance. Our gastronomy is seasonal and based on the produce from our garden as well as from local organic produce available from neighbouring fincas on the island. Here at Es Racó sitting down for a meal is a joyous moment to celebrate our interconnectedness and appreciate the colourful palate the land provides us with.

FROM THE WORLD TO ES RACÓ

slowing down – being rather than doing – feeling – connecting

Es Raco d’Arta is not a hotel, but a destination for transformation. A place to be inspired by genuine Mallorquin life. A place to allow for the real and authentic to shine through. Visiting Es Racó is not a tale about ‘checking out’. It is about ‘checking in’, with self and with others; leaning in, deepen, returning to the body, to our senses, to our humanness, fully embodying life here on earth.

The Amal Way of Life

Amal Tamara’s wellness philosophy is Chikitsa Chatushpada – a unique Ayurvedic concept, referring to the idea that four limbs of curative programme, namely, the physician, the patient, the therapist, and the medicine itself, must work in synergy.

“Pathye sathi gatharthasya kim Oushadha nishevanam” When a diet is correct, there is no need for medicine From the Vaidya Jeevanam At Amal, an expert Ayurvedic physician and an expert chef will design the perfect diet for your needs. A personalised wellness menu, suiting your curative plan, body type, and health conditions, will be offered to you. Our menu, devoid of sea salt, refined sugar, preservatives, or refined flour, encompasses the wisdom of Ayurvedic cooking.

Holistic Healing

Amal Tamara harnesses the wisdom of Ayurvedic medicine and offers a healing experience in the serene backwaters of Kerala- an environment that will still the mind, calm the nerves, and promote healing from inside out. It is not only about the symptom on the surface- the blemish on the skin, the ache in the stomach, or the loss of hair. Unlike the Western systems of medicine and healing, Ayurveda places emphasis on prevention and maintenance rather than the treatment of symptoms and external indication of disease. Ayurvedic practitioners believe in holistic healing and wellness, rooted in the absolute balance of lifestyle, diet, manner of thinking, spiritual practices, and the use of herbs in everyday life. When the energies of the body are balanced and in sync, the body is more equipped to use its natural defense systems to fight disease.

Im SPA Bereich sorgt ein erfahrenes Team für die körperliche Tiefenentspannung bevor Abenteurer mit erfahrenen Rangern auf Safari gehen und Giraffen, Zebras und viele andere Tiere aus nächster Nähe erleben. Zum Sundowner gibt es eine Ausfahrt auf den höchsten Berg der Gegend, wo das Team der Lodge eine perfekt ausgestattete Bar und Snacks aufgebaut hat.

Pierre Germishuizen, General Manager der Gmundner Lodge sagt dazu:

„Hier in Namibia kommen auf einen Arbeitnehmer sieben Familienmitglieder, die er oder sie mitversorgt. Wir haben eine große soziale Verantwortung und der stellen wir uns gerne.“ Aus diesem Grunde werden auf dem Gelände der Lodge auch die Kinder der Angestellten in einem eigenen Kindergarten betreut. Das Konzept geht auf, so Germishuizen: „Unsere Mitarbeiter sind sehr zufrieden. Sie sind stolz auf ihre Lodge und empfangen unsere Gäste mit sehr viel Herzlichkeit und einem perfekten Service.“
