Since Love Island hit our screens on 5 June, flight searches to Mallorca have risen by almost a third (according to booking site kiwi.com), with fans of the show seeking a similarly sun-drenched escape.

The hotel: Cap Rocat

An imposing 19th-century fortress, perched on the cliffs of the Bay of Palma, Cap Rocat epitomises the romantic charm of Mallorca. The hotel is a luxury hideaway situated on its own peninsula: stroll across the drawbridge into a fairy-tale Mediterranean courtyard, take a dip in a pool carved into the ramparts, or lodge within former surveillance points in the new Sentinels, cut into the rock face and furnished with local fabrics. Kate Kelley
