Opened 2018, the Forum Hotel is one of the newest in Alcúdia town, but has quickly established itself as one of the finest boutique properties in the region. Handsome sandstone characterises the more traditional elements, enhanced with swish contemporary interior design that beautifully complements the original Mallorcan architecture.
Guestrooms feel distinctly upscale, while a lovely secluded pool and surprisingly comprehensive spa facilities have made this a popular choice with holidaying couples of all ages.
The Forum Hotel is set on a street overlooking the main square in the charming historic centre of Alcúdia old town. Most of Alcúdia’s restaurants and low-key nightlife can be found on the plaza opposite and the surrounding lanes. The town itself is located on a large peninsular that separates the twin bays of Pollensa and Alcúdia in the northeast of the island. Traffic permitting, it’s around 40 minutes by road to Palma and its international airport.
