Go Here: Three Hot Hotels in Palma de MallorcaBy Dominique Afacan
The sun isn’t going to shine on London forever but it will likely shine in Mallorca non-stop for the next 6 months. It’s time to book that flight.
Here are three new and hot hotels in Palma, Mallorca, to rest your head once you’ve made it off that ghastly no-frills flight:
Hotel Cort, Palma de Mallorca
What: This gorgeous little design hotel is smack bang central so it’s perfect for exploring the Old Town or sauntering down to the beach (yep, the city ticks the beach box too) without working up a sweat.
If you’ve got money to burn, book into the Island Suite where you can enjoy views over the city from either of your terraces, one of which has a Jacuzzi. If not, the other 15 spacious rooms are gorgeous too – all loosely nautical themed with lovely design touches like blue-and-white hand-painted tiles, sun-bleached wooden floors and maritime prints.
Why: The food in the hotel restaurant is a cut above most hotel dining rooms – with both a decent atmosphere and a more than decent tapas menu. And yes, there’s a swimming pool.
Hotel Can Alomar, Palma de Mallorca
What: They don’t come much newer than this. This palatial listed mansion has been carefully transformed into Palma’s latest and greatest boutique hotel and opened May 1st.
The sixteen rooms are all spacious and grown-up in feel, with contemporary design and sumptuous, coffee-coloured interiors.
Why: Head up to the roof for a quick dip in the plunge pool and while you’re there take some smug Instagrams from the Viewing Tower. The hotel is right on the Passeig del Born, one of the best shoppings streets in town, so you won’t need to venture far for a retail fix.
Hotel Portixol, Palma de Mallorca
What: Don’t tell a soul but a twenty minute walk out of Palma will land you in Portixol – Palma’s cute and under-the-radar little sister – a former fishing village turned hot new place to be.
Running alongside the coast, you’ll find stylish Spaniards tucking into tapas in Tapas Club and sipping through the so-called siestas in ProSecCo. So where to stay to ensure this is all on your doorstep? Hotel Portixol – that’s where.
Why: This oh-so-hip design hotel has one of the best pools in town and half of the rooms have sea views. Oh and have a hamburger poolside (sod the bikini diet, it’s too late now), they say they are the best in town, and they’re not wrong.
