Solo In Style:
Women over 50 travelling solo and loving it!

Join our Solo In Style Mallorca Getaway, curated and hosted by Deborah Ives, founder of Solo In Style, and Laura Cozik, founder of Mallorca by Design.

10 Women are Welcome

 

Discover Autumn in Mallorca...

 

Mallorca is known for its beautiful coastline, secluded beaches and coves, limestone mountains, centuries old architecture, wineries, weekly markets, and year round breathtaking beauty.  You will experience all of these during our Mallorca Getaway.  We have exclusive use of our very own luxury hotel for six beautiful nights, in a local village at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains.  Next we visit the city of Palma for three spectacular nights in a small boutique hotel in the old town. 

 

Villages You Will Explore... 

 

 

This Getaway Is For You If...

 

Historic walks through the past awaken your curiosity.  You love dining alfresco.  Visiting local markets to taste everything in season rocks your socks.  Temperatures in the 70's are your comfort zone.  You love nature, hiking, exploring.  You believe that a walk on the beach and a swim in the Sea is the most lavish experience.  You prefer to mingle with locals and immerse yourself in their way of life, over spending time with those who were on your flight.  Autumn travel is irresistable to you, with local harvests and cultural celebrations.  And finally, travelling with an intimate group of like-minded women, with more time on foot and less in a vehicle is your jam.  There will be a good amount of walking, so comfortable shoes and an appropriate level of fitness is required. 

 

Your Hosts...

 

How often is it that you go on holiday with the founder of your chosen travel tribe?  Solo In Style has more than half a million members, and Deborah Ives, the woman who caught lightning in a bottle, will be joining this experience with you.  Also looking after you will be the founder of Mallorca by Design, who has been a local resident for 6 years.  Laura has been hosting events and spending the shoulder seasons in Mallorca since 2010, and in 2018 she finally packed her bags and left New York City.  Her focus is always on the most unique experiences.  You’re in for an unforgettable adventure.

 

Join Us...  

 

This Mallorca Getaway is limited to just 10 amazing women.  Everyone has their own room with private bath.  Rooms are first come, first served ... the sooner you register, the more choices you have.  Join us as we enjoy each other’s company, share our stories, forge new friendships, and have an insane amount of fun to boot.  Laugh as much as you breathe and stay curious as long as you live.

The journey begins in an absolutely beautiful hotel, where we are the ONLY guests.  It is located at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains, in a Spanish hamlet, surrounded by beautiful villages.  Each room is entirely unique, but all have a high quality mattress with Spirit of the Nomad linens, ensuite bath with tub and separate shower, temperature control, writing desk, complimentary mini bar, bathrobes, hair dryer, make-up mirror, and organic skin care products by Natura Bissé.  The hotel has a land area of ​​more than 70 hectares, offering ample space for guests to enjoy peaceful nature.  The property includes a fortified medieval farmhouse known as Alquería and an ancient oil mill that produces formidable olive oil.  In the courtyard stands the original chapel, now guarded by the walls of the estate, which adds a historical and cultural touch to the agrotourism experience in this unparalleled environment.  Guest rooms are located in several different buildings, which are accessed via stone walkways.  There is a pool, a spa, a sauna and hot tub garden for private use, and numerous spaces for both outdoor and indoor dining. 

 

Next we check in to a boutique hotel in Palma, located in the precious Old Town.  All rooms will be upgraded to a superior category, and yours will be just for you.  From here it is easy to walk, shop and explore.  You may even hear an occassional church bell.

 

As always, Solo In Style rooms are private and en-suite.  We do not offer shares.  The rooms are first come, first served ... the sooner you register, the more choices you have.

Deborah 1 BEST.jpg

DEBORAH

Founder, Solo in Style

 

Deborah has always loved to travel and when she found herself suddenly divorced aged 50, her response was to go it alone. It was scary, fabulous, and empowering, in equal measure, and she was instantly hooked.  As a solo female traveller over the age of 50, a huge and growing demographic, Deborah felt ignored by the travel industry. This prompted her to create Solo In Style with the idea of connecting like-minded women to encourage and support one another with their solo travels.  Alongside a successful 30-year career in marketing, fine wine & culinary arts, Deborah, now aged 63, continues to expand Solo in Style globally to support and encourage as many women as possible to fulfil their solo travel ambitions.

Weather in Mallorca in November

November is truly the perfect month for enjoyment as it is not too hot and not too cold.  Temperatures are between 60-75 degrees fahrenheit during the day (15-24 celcius), and 50-60 in the evenings (10-15).  With global warming, this may even bit a tad higher.  Additionally, the Sea is still warm enough to swim in, and dining al fresco with a cozy sweater is very common.  November is also the month of many harvests ... grapes, olives, mushrooms.

Maximum Group Size

We are accepting just 10 women for this event.

Eligible to Attend

This trip is exclusively for Solo in Style members ... women 50+ years of age with a brilliant outlook on life, who love to travel and want to meet like-minded, as well as diverse women.

Pack List

A pack list will be sent to every guest prior to travel.  Casual clothing throughout, comfortable footwear, swimwear for the pool, sea and spa, and workout gear (if participating).  The pack list will be much more detailed.

Room Selection

All rooms are private with private bathroom, for maximum comfort and a bit of solo time.  They are each uniquely beautiful in layout and decor ... reserved on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis.  The earlier you reserve your spot and pay your deposit, the more choices you’ll have.  

Room Sharing

Solo In Style is exactly that ... your room is just for you.  All rooms are solo occupancy with private bathrooms.  Some are on the ground floor, some are on the top floor, some have balconies, etc.  Rooms are reserved on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis, based on when your deposit was received.

Mandatory Travel Insurance

Solo in Style requires each guest to purchase full personal travel insurance for the duration of the trip.  It's the safest and best way to travel.  We will ask for proof of insurance prior to the event and reserve the right to deny any participant who has not obtained this.  Any fees paid towards the event will be non-refundable.

Dietary Requirements

Most requirements are possible, although nutritional requirements like pure vegan and gluten free may be limited.  When booking restaurants, we will be sure to give them a heads up with regard to your preferences.  

Photos and Videos

One of the most fun aspects of any travel event are the photos and videos taken.  We provide a shared folder where everyone can drop and download media.  We will also share our best footage.  Guests are welcome to post these images on social media.  You may not sell or otherwise use any of the images taken by us or our photographers and videographers or other guests for commercial purposes.  When registering for our event you agree and acknowledge that your image and likeness may be used in future promotional material by both Solo In Style and our partner companies.  We only use the "good ones" where everyone looks great!  If you prefer not to be photographed or to appear in any videos, please let us know ahead of time.

Please be prepared to sign a ‘Waiver of Responsibility’ form before you begin your trip. This form is an understanding that all guests need to exercise judgement and care at all times to ensure their own safety and that of their fellow travelers.

Airport Transfers

Upon arrival to Mallorca it is quick and easy and inexpensive to grab a taxi.  You'll be on your way to the hotel within minutes of exiting the airport.  Prior to travel, we will all share flight details so that perhaps you can ride with a fellow guest.  Your taxi back to the airport will be scheduled for you.  Cost is approximately 100 euro round trip ... you may pay via credit card or cash in euro.

Alcohol and Other Substances

Spain is known for its wine and gin.  If you plan to drink, we ask you to do so responsibly.  The idea is to enjoy, but not to become inebriated.  Drugs and illegal substances will never be tolerated.

Covid Measures and Requirements

Solo in Style will ask all guests to follow the requirements of travel to Spain at the time of the event. There are currently no COVID requirements to enter Spain.  As this is unpredictable, we will make a final decision just prior to the event.  We are unable to provide refunds if you are denied entry because of failure to comply with the COVID-19 requirements of any destination we visit.
