The 17-year-old told authorities she was assaulted at a hotel in Andratx, the south-west of the Spanish island, after she started chatting to the two male suspects in a nearby restaurant.
Following the alleged rape, the teen told officers that the men, aged 37 and 42, had made her shower in an attempt to element evidence that would be traceable to them, according to local newspaper Ultima Hora.
It has described them as an “actor and musician with a long professional career in the south east Asian country”. They were arrested at the unnamed hotel in the early hours of Saturday morning, and have now been released on bail but banned from leaving Spain pending an ongoing criminal probe after appearing before an investigating magistrate in a closed court hearing.
The British teenager is believed to have left the island with her family after ratifying her police statement in front of the same judge.

Ultima Hora says the men and the girl were staying in separate hotels in the municipality of Andratx and got into conversation at a nearby restaurant before she agreed to go to the place where the Vietnamese pair were staying after spending time on the beach with them.
She was examined by doctors at Son Espases Hospital in the Majorcan capital Palma as part of standard protocol before making her police statement. Police confirmed they had been called to deal with an alleged rape at a hotel in Andratx.
A well-placed source said: “Two Vietnamese nationals were arrested in the earlier hours of Saturday morning and the investigation is ongoing.”
Court officials were not immediately available for comment. Neither of the two men arrested has yet been named.
It was not clear whether the pair were on holiday in Majorca or had travelled to the island for work reasons. As well as being banned from leaving Spain they have also been asked to surrender their passports.
Local reports said they declined to answer questions when they appeared before the investigating judge shortly after their arrests. It is not yet known if they were formally questioned by police before being taken to court.
