The great festival of Ciutadella returns after two years of hiatus due to the pandemic. And we couldn't be more excited!
As a family of Sagitario Hotels, we have lived, experienced and celebrated the Sant Joan festivities for as long as we can remember. And, as we know that there may be some delicate moments, we have thought of proposing a small guide so that you can enjoy the party.
The latest addition to Sagitario Hotels is Only Adults
In our cover post, we gave you a little insight into what the Sagitario Hotels chain is. How this great family adventure began and how far it has come. It was at that point when we put everything we are and offer on the table. And one of the little jewels that we have opened this year 2022 is the Petit Sagitario.
So in this post we would like to tell you something more about this small vacation hotel, located just in front of its older brother, the Gran Sagitario, and the strong connection that it has the environment that surrounds it. Shall we find out together?
This April we have hosted the I Open Chess Menorca, in which world figures of this sport have participated.
Menorca, at the center of the world chess board
Opening one of our establishments with full occupancy is a joy. And even more so if it is to be able to host one of the sporting events that will mark this year 2022: the I Open Chess Menorca. Representatives from 33 countries have traveled to Menorca to participate in this tournament, organized by the Chess Menorca association in collaboration with CECA, and which promises to become a benchmark in the world of chess. There have been five days, from April 20 to 24, in which, as if we were a great teacher, we have had to organize spaces, logistics and a multitude of arrivals, focusing on an organization in which each piece has been key to the success. In addition, we have turned our halls into the meeting place for world-class figures. Because although we love being able to use the enormous gardens of the Princesa Playa for all kinds of outdoor activities, the challenge of organizing a sports tournament of this magnitude has shown us the versatility of our spaces.
In March we celebrate the World Day of People with Down Syndrome, a very special date for us.
Since the founders of Sagittarius Hotels started the business, more than 30 years ago, they knew that everyone who wanted to, should have a job opportunity in our company. And why was it so clear? Well, because in their own family they had members with different abilities. And what is known closely, is loved in a special way. For this reason, every March 21, we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day with our colleagues, a condition that brings an enriching vision to the work teams of our hotels.
The Tourism Commission rewards the Circular Economy promoted by the Sagitario Hotels model
We have been integrating the primary sector into tourism for years and offering the best of the Menorcan countryside through our hotel establishments. This way of working, which the founder of our company, Sebastià Triay Fayas, implemented a long time ago, is now called Circular Economy. And it is precisely this aspect of our DNA that has earned Sagitario Hotels the recognition of the Balearic business sector. A Christmas gift that arrived in advance and that we now want to share with all of you.
You fancy a getaway and a change of scene. And you fancy fresh air, nature, sea, life.
That is why you are thinking of reserving a room at Petit Ciutadella or Hostal Ciutadella… But the question arises: what will I do in Menorca if I cannot go to the beach because it is not summer?
We are going to give you some tips and tell you some secrets to enjoy the island in the months when we Menorcans also enjoy it the most. Take a notebook and write down!
The wonders that Menorca offers on the coast are well known. But have you taken a look inside the island?
The prehistory of Menorca dates back a few thousand years. The rock, present in many of the human manifestations of all times, is the protagonist of this post, in the form of archaeological sites. You should inform yourself before the excursions to understand the context and the importance of these enclaves. But we assure you that a walk through Menorca 3,000 years ago can be a fascinating journey through time.
If you like nature, walking, playing sports and have already read something about Menorca, surely the name Camí de Cavalls sounds familiar to you.
This path, which borders the island's coastline for 185 kilometers , is ideal for discovering the natural and scenic diversity of this Biosphere Reserve. And with the drop in temperatures during these dates, touring it becomes a much more pleasant adventure. You sign up?
The Caribbean is closer than you think
If you have taken a look online, you will know that in Menorca you can find beaches that are quite close to the general idea of what the Caribbean is. Crystal clear turquoise waters and fine white sand that sparkles with the sun. Here, we trade palm trees for pines, it is true. But for the rest, the picture could belong to one of those exotic places that we dream of thanks to the cinema.
Well, stop dreaming. Because if many of our guests return to the island, it is precisely because of its nature. And, above all, by the more than 100 beaches and coves that cut the coast every few kilometers.
The good thing about staying in one of our hotels is that you have more than one of these dreamy coves just a few steps away.. They are Xoriguer and Cala en Bosch you have them five minutes walk from the Princesa Playa and 15 from Menorcamar. Cala Blanca, Sa Caleta, and Santandria are also a stroll away from the Spa Sagitario Playa, Vista Playa Apartments and Villas Sagitario. In fact, if you stay at our new hotelGran Sagitario,you have the cove of Santandria almost at the foot of the hotel. A pine forest separates your room from this small family beach that has services for people with reduced mobility, surveillance and water activities such as kayak rental.
However, the extreme beauty of the Menorcan coast can be seen in the virgin beaches . Those that flee from civilization and that are an almost mandatory option if you arrive in Menorca as a couple or with friends. It is also possible to go as a family, although we warn you that being undeveloped coves, you will have to walk for a while. And always carry everything you need with you: from sunscreen to umbrella, food and water to get through the day.
A marvel in front of the hotel
Today we want to tell you a different story. A story that, due to its location, is very close to places such as the Sagitario Playa Spa and the Vista Playa I and II apartments. But, for time, we have to go back thousands of years.
