4th – 11th March 2024


Majorca Congress

- an overseas congress in the largest island of the Balearic Islands!

Cala Ratjada, Majorca, 4th - 11th March 2024


The Spring overseas 2024 congress, will be held in Majorca, March 2024, at the Hotel Bella Playa. Bookings are now being taken by First for Bridge and members are advised to book as soon as possible due to the late change of location. 8-day and 10-day options are available.

The Hotel Bella Playa & Spa in Cala Ratjada is a firm favourite with guests who commend it for its excellent dining and friendly service as well as its warm atmosphere and relaxing facilities. 

Cala Ratjada is a well-established resort and port on the beautiful northeast coast of Majorca that up until recently was virtually undiscovered by British tourists. As a result, it is completely unspoilt, allowing you to enjoy delightful coastal promenades, as well as an abundance of traditional restaurants and tapas bars. Not to be missed is a haggle in the excellent Saturday market in the old town; a great opportunity to treat yourself to some leather goods or pick up a souvenir! The area is beautiful with a dramatic coastline and many sandy bays, perfect for wonderful coastal walks. 

The hotel offers excellent facilities including a large indoor pool with hydro jets, saunas and steam rooms, as well as a lovely outdoor pool and terraces.
