Christian Bale is an Welsh international footballer who has more recently been playing in Spain. In June 2019 he got married in northern Mallorca. He chose Sa Fortaleza estate in Pollenca for his wedding which was spread across 3 days! Incidentally the Sa Fortaleza estate, also known as ‘La Fortaleza’ was bought by the current owner for 40 million pounds. It is very private and accessible by sea plane into it’s military airport.
Rafa Nadal is from Manacor in Eastern Mallorca; his parents still live here. The family own and run a superb tennis and fitness academy here also. This personable chap is often on the island and is very proud of his home routes. Who wouldn’t be proud to be from such a beautiful island! He was doubly lucky getting the talent and hard-work genes to also be proud of.
STOP PRESS: Rafael Nadal is getting hitched in Mallorca
Just this week (August 14th 2019) the rumours have started to circulate! Rafael will wed his long term partner Xisca Perello in October 2019. Word-up is that his wedding will also take place at Sa Fortaleza in Pollenca.
This venue is available only to those ‘in the know’. So let’s not worry too much about it here. Only to say that celebrities choose Mallorca to celebrate love as well!

High End Mallorca Honeymoons and Anniversaries
If you are after a high-end Mallorca honeymoon or anniversary, try Son Bunyola Rural Finca Estate. Part of Richard Branson’s ‘Virgin Limited Edition Brand’, there is a choice of three luxury retreats to rent out here. Sa Terra Rotja, Sa Punta de S’Aguila and Son Balagueret are your options.
There’s something about Deia
Writers, musicians, entrepreneurs have all been drawn to this hill-top village in Mallorca’s North-West.
Before Richard Branson bought Son Buyola rural finca, he owned owned ‘La Residencia’ luxury hotel in Deia. He regularly holidayed here. The only reason he sold it on in because he wasn’t granted approval for his hotel extension plans. His daughter is even named Eva Deia. Surely this is no coincidence; it must be because of his love for this place!
Belmond La Residencia Hotel

Exclusivity is the reason to choose La Residencia for your Mallorca honeymoon or anniversary. That is if you want a more traditional feel at your hotel.
