Luxurious hotels in Majorca
The newly opened Nakar Hotel is the latest addition to Palma’s Design Hotels chain. It has everything you could wish for; fantastic location (on the main shopping street Jaime III), a spa, roof terrace with infinity pool and rooms styled with local materials, earthy colors and modern, Majorcan design, that include Apple-TVs, Nespresso machines and hair care products from Molton Brown. A passion for everything local is echoed in the hotel restaurant CUIT, whose menu features traditional Majorcan dishes with a modern twist.
Double rooms from around SEK1,700.
Hotel Sant Francesc
The view from the Sant Francesc roof terrace takes in the cathedral, the sea and the neighboring Gothic basilica after which the hotel is named. Soon after it opened in 2015, Condé Nast named this the hottest hotel of the year. Many original features have been preserved in the historic neoclassical style building, such as the decorated ceiling and hitching posts in the inner courtyard where they used to saddle their horses in bygone times. Breakfast is served in the former stables that have been transformed into a sober gourmet restaurant. The hotel rooms have a sophisticated but minimalist style. The color palette is white, gray and beige and many of the rooms are furnished with antiques and photo art.
Double rooms from around SEK1,900 Skr.
Created by Spanish interior design architect Lázaro Rosa-Violán, one of the super stars of the design world, Cort is the ultimate city hotel for interior design fans.

The hotel also has a small roof terrace with sun loungers and mini pool. If you want to cool down in your own private pool, you can book The Island Suite with its own private roof terrace and jacuzzi.
