If you’re dreaming of the sun, sand and sea, the Mediterranean isle of Mallorca might sound pretty good right now. The largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands has a lot to love: beaches for relaxing, the Serra de Tramuntana mountains for climbing, and the atmospheric city of Palma for culture and history. In exciting hotel news, a newly constructed boutique property called Hotel Es Princep will be debuting this month.
The location is stellar. Situated in the Calatrava neighborhood in Palma’s historic center, Hotel Es Princep will have views of both the Mediterranean sea and the old city through floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel takes its name from the Prince who constructed the monumental wall visible outside the hotel—the Baluard del Princep. The owners, a local family, hope to introduce guests to the authentic Mallorcan lifestyle.
There will be 68 guestrooms and suites equipped with Le Labo bath amenities and large windows for taking in the views. A hotel highlight will be the panoramic rooftop terrace called Almaq, complete with a pool. Despite the hotel’s small room count, there will be a spa equipped with a jacuzzi, sauna and 60-foot swimming pool. The dining concepts are overseen by award-winning chef Andreu Genestra. Bala Roja, named “Red Bullet” for the cannons that used to protect the city, will serve up fine local cuisine, while Mura is the spot for breakfast and afternoon snacks. Hotel Es Princep is also pulling out all the stops with a cool cocktail bar called Gremium. ¡Salud!
