Travel Spain: 3 fabulously special hotels in Mallorca

What does first spring to mind, when someone talks about Mallorca the island in the Balearic archipelago? Do you also picture cheap hotels and semi naked boys and girls sipping sangria from a bucket? Mallorca the island in the Mediterranean Sea also has got fantastic landscapes, delicious cuisine and lots of history and art. I wanted to visit desperately ... And here is where we stayed and had many best time ever moments

Brondo Architect Hotel – Cowgirl meets wanderer

Staying in the middle of Palma, in a stylish and fun place, it should be a little bit like visiting someone at a private residence but with everything a hotel has to offer. After a quick web search I found what I was after: Brondo Architect Hotel right in the middle of the historic center of Palma. The hotel is a place where shabby chic meets cowgirl, meets relaxed luxury, meets tourist and wanderer. We could not have wished for a better place. Our room was decorated in minimalist style and had with a bedroom, a sitting area, a hallway with vintage fridge and a bathroom enough space for a most comfortable stay. Breakfast was sumptuous and outright delicious and to be had on the wooden deck or in the colourful restaurant.

We paid EUR 230/night/double room inclusive breakfast at Brondo Architect Hotel. Carrer Can Brondo, 4, 07001 Palma de Mallorca, Spain. 

Es Petit Hotel Valldemossa - Rustic plus majestic view

Valldemossa is surrounded by the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range. This unique hotel is on a narrow cobblestone road, which runs directly into the centre of Valldemossa, and it is only a leisurely walk of 1 or 2 minutes. If you would like to, you can park your car in the front for some moments, to unload luggage, and park your vehicle at a nearby parking space after that. The owner opened the door to welcome us after we rang the doorbell. The tiny hotel with only 8 rooms oozes the charms of a house in a mountain village. Our room is best described as inviting and had a big enough bathroom. When we entered we instantly felt at home, so friendly was the atmosphere. The breakfast was served on the sunny terrace and offered everything you can dream of including lots of homemade goodies. Mornings were blissful, listening to nothing but the sound of sheep and the bells of the goats. The breakfast area as well as our private balcony overlooked the whole valley full of orange and olive trees and it felt like we were in a painting. Do you know that feeling?

We paid EUR 175/night/inclusive breakfast and parking at Es Petit Hotel Valldemossa. Calle Uetam 1, 07170 Valldemossa, Mallorca, Spain.

Boutique Hotel Calatrava – Calming elegance & beach

This hotel had only recently opened when we checked-in for 5 nights. The property is in a fabulous location, close to La Seu, the gothic Cathedral and in a friendly part of town. Our room, one of 19 others, was airy and modern, decorated in a beige, red and grey colour scheme, and it felt and smelled fresh and inviting. The bathroom area is all lean chic and has got the perfect strong shower. When we wanted to use the sauna, Jacuzzi and hot stone lounges we simply had to book the spa area one night in advance to have this calming space all for ourselves. 

From the rooftop terrace of the hotel, you have the most amazing view of Parc de la Mar and over the bay, where the whole beauty of the sea and port is right in front of you. Just go up there and have a sunset drink, there was never anyone else on the terrace for a sundowner, it was simply romantic.

We paid EUR 365/night/double room exclusive of breakfast at Boutique Hotel Calatrava. Plaza Llorenc Villalonga 8, Palma de Mallorca, Mallorca, 0701.
