Hypnosis might be Paul McKenna's bag, but if you want to believe you're really on a beach in the sunshine, stamp Patrick Mackellar's name on your membrane. 200 years ago, the bolshy Brit arrived on the island of Menorca, and founded the scenic town of El Castell. He wanted a Spanish oasis with British charm and he'd be pleased to find his vision manifested in the recently-refurbished Hotel Rey Carlos III.

For £249 (up to a value of £418) you'll be entranced with a three-night stay for two in one of the hotel's stylish rooms, complete with en suite, air-con, and free Wi-Fi facilities. Alternatively, unlock £409 (up to a £674 value) for a five-night stay; or take a longer holiday for seven nights at £569 (up to a £948 value). In the peak season of July 16 to August 31 you can also embark on a seven-night holiday for £825 (up to a £1,378 value).

Either way, you'll fill your mind palace with visions of paradise by opening the blinds each morning to views over the lapis Mediterranean Sea. Basking at the most easterly point, the hotel is the first spot to feel the warmth of the morning sun, and whilst you're waiting for the waters below to be gently heated, you can take a dip in the private pool and watch the island come to life.

Feed your appetite, after feeding your soul, in the restaurant each morning with a full continental breakfast. In the evening, the Cala Longa is transformed into a romantic, elegant dining room and each Tuesday guests are treated to a special Menorcan buffet. The menu bursts with exquisite seafood and local pleasures, which might feature the renowed lobster stew, oven-baked aubergines or the local 'sobrasada' sausages. Accompanied with your bottle of regional wine, your role-play in relaxation will come into its own.

Beyond the whitewashed walls, you're encircled with unique boutiques, bars, and restaurants. With 99 beaches across 216 kilometres of coastline, the hotel is excellently placed to experience some of the most accessible, yet untouched coves on offer. Kayaking is one of the best ways to explore the clifftops and jagged isles and there's an abundance of companies offering hire equipment to do so.

There's no need to ponder the pendulous pocket watch on your last day; enjoy the exclusive late checkout to make sure your psyche is fully soothed.

The countdown has already begun; make the break now before you're away from the beaches, and back in the room.

  • ''This must be one of the few places in the Mediterranean where it is possible to have a beautiful beach largely to yourself in summer.''
