This newly renovated luxury south-facing waterfront villa is located in the most desirable area of Old Bendinat. Just a 2 minute stroll to Hotel Bendinat and only a 10 minute drive from Palma and jet-set harbour Puerto Portals.
Positioned on the cliff edge overlooking the azure Palma bay, the villa enjoys panoramic views of crystal clear waters and blue skies. It enjoys sun from morning to evening as well as easy sea access for a dip in the Mediterranean.
A king sized Balinese bed and day beds by the pool overlook white sun loungers and parasols on various levels of rock terraces looking to the ocean front. The sea is a spectacle of colourful snorkelers, dinghies, and kayaks bobbing up and down like toys next to luxurious yachts moored for the day to enjoy the views and to play in the sea.
Villa Contessa is designed in a timeless seaside fashion featuring bespoke cherrywood furniture in all rooms. The villa stands in a plot of 1440m². Entirely built of Santanyi stone with windows of Burmese teak and terraces of Binissalem stone, the ample 797m² living space is spread over three floors and a guest/staff flat.
An impressive sliding gate of ipe wood ensures complete seclusion and privacy and serves as the main entrance to the property. The villa is surrounded by green palm trees, yucca and white fragrant jasmine, and cypress hedges, all standing in a white gravel rockery. The front drive offers ample parking space for 3 cars.
By way of a wraparound access on either side of the villa in the lower level, there is a gym and spa area with a hammam. Furthermore, in the front of the villa through a secured gate, is the way to the sea and its coastline. The house totals 8 en suite bedrooms, two of which are in the staff/guest dependance.
Natural light floods through panoramic teak windows, whilst mirrored walls ensure glimpses of the Mediterranean from every angle. An all-white open plan kitchen is divided from the 16-seat dining room by a long bar. Throughout the house white is contrasted with teak or cherry wood and modern or African art.
The dining room leads into an expansive living room with two large seating areas, one of which doubles as a cinema room. Minimalist furniture paired with white surf boards and African decorations create a laid-back yet luxurious feeling of seaside living.
The living room and dining room look onto the pool and covered terraces. In the shade of the covered terraces there is a long table capable of seating all home guests, sofas, armchairs and day beds.
These terraces are a blessing on very hot days, as you can feel the sea breeze caressing your skin. The first luxurious en suite bedroom is also found on the ground floor.
This floor hosts four (4) individually designed bedrooms decorated in the same theme of white and cherrywood.
The master suite enjoys his and hers bathrooms, breath-taking panoramic views of the Bay of Palma and floor-to-ceiling teak sliding doors which open out onto the extensive first floor covered terraces which flank the perimeter of the entire first floor. The waves of the Mediterranean sea will rock you to sleep in the super king size four poster bed, and enjoying sunrise breakfast on the the terrace outside the master bedroom is a treat hard to beat.
The three other bedrooms are a combination of double and single bedded rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms.
The second floor hosts the 6th en suite bedroom of the main house. This room leads onto an approximately 160m² raised roof terrace featuring the most amazing views, a jacuzzi, sun beds, shower, sofas and dining table, a kitchen, BBQ and a surround sound system.
The terrace has lots of green plants and large remote controlled parasols with led light for the evenings. Here you can spend the days sunbathing and the evenings BBQing. You can host parties while enjoying the most wonderful views of the sun set over the bay.
A gym with panoramic sea views is to be found under the pool area. It has a bar, surround sound, a hammam, shower, and a toilet. The guest flat is composed of two en suite bedrooms with sea views and overlooking yucca and palm trees standing in white gravel. It has a living room adjacent to the laundry room.

Bendinat is one of Mallorca’s most exclusive neighbourhoods and home to some of the island’s wealthiest residents. Quiet and secluded, yet in close proximity to both the capital and buzzing neighbouring marina of Puerto Portals only adds to its appeal.
There is a good selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants within walking distance, and a small beach between Puerto Portals and Illetas, ideal for holiday makers with young families. Nearby in Illetas you will find first class facilities, shaded sun beds and restaurants, a holistic massage centre, some exclusive clothes shops and chic beach bars that open late into the evening. For water sports enthusiasts, sailing and diving tuition is available on the beach at Puerto Portals, located just a short walk around the headland. For keen golfers the Real Golf de Bendinat is one the finest courses on the island.
Most of the best dining options are situated in the area’s hotels, such as Las Terrazas de Bendinat, the restaurant of Bendinat Hotel and known for serving one of the best paellas on the island. The Astir Gourmet Restaurant at the seaside five-star Grand Portals Nous is more modern and stylish, with an international menu that combines local organic produce with Mallorcan flavours. Niko’s Place at the Lindner Golf Resort hotel offers a more casual family-friendly experience.
