Environment

CAP ROCAT HAS BEEN CAREFULLY RESTORED WITHOUT ALTERING ITS UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE AND ITS NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.

Cap Rocat, declared Place of Cultural Interest by UNESCO, is located in a protected area and thus put special care into the environmental impact in its operation. Our management is focused on different criteria of sustainability that let us improve our daily activity and minimize the impact on the environment that surround us.

The former military fortress that is today Cap Rocat is located on the Cape Enderrocat, and it has the privilege of being surrounded by the waters of the protected marine reserve of the bay of Palma, we consider its care and protection to be a priority. The coast where Cap Rocat is located is characterized by the abundance of Posidonia oceanica or "Neptune Grass", a seagrass that is found throughout the Mediterranean. It fulfills a vital function, similar to rainforests, by helping in the oxygenation and purification of the water, forming an ecosystem rich in biodiversity and also an important breeding area for many marine species.

Since its foundation in 2010, Cap Rocat Hotel focuses on its tranquility and simplicity in its choice of product and core values, and is a clear representative on ecotourism, protecting the flora and fauna of the area where it is located, declared Natural Area of Special Interest. Our philosophy is based on the respect for nature and pride of the cultural and ecological heritage of Mallorca.

Our housekeeping staff is trained to ensure the maximum comfort in the rooms taking into consideration the need to minimize the use of detergents.

ENVIRONMENTAL SIGNS

In the hotel's public areas we have placed over fifty environmental signs to inform our guests that they are in a protected area. We accompany this information with a photo display of birds and other native species that inhabit the surroundings of Cap Rocat.

GASTRONOMY

In our hotel we prioritize in purchasing products Km. 0, meaning we promote the consumption of local and organic supplies. This way we help the consumption of local products by encouraging the direct purchase from small producers.

ASSOCIATIONS SUPPORT

The philosophy of respect for nature and pride for the cultural and ecological heritage of Mallorca has materialized with the support of the association ONDINE, who also contributes studying the environment of the hotel, through the project "Study of the Stingray in Mallorca". Cap Rocat made a donation to the association from collecting funds among guests and from funds provided by the hotel itself, and has been named a "collective member" of the ONDINE association.
