The military fortress exterior of Cap Rocat in Mallorca, Spain

We can't think of a better way to give peace a chance than to turn a former military fortress into a tranquil retreat. Dating back to the nineteenth century, the adults-only Cap Rocat is a stunning lesson in the art of metamorphosis, with suites created out of the old shooting buttresses and an infinity pool sculpted from a rampart. A trio of dining venues includes the waterfront Sea Club, where dishes are cooked in a traditional Mallorcan firewood oven, and The Former Fortress Kitchen, for private dining, wine tastings and cooking classes. With its bunkers, drawbridge and a gunpowder depot turned into an event terrace, this is surely the most original luxury hotel on our list.
