The official opening of the Hotel Joan Miró Museum took place in April 2016.
The Morgana Group, a hotelier company with branches in Palma and Medellín in Columbia has been responsible for developing the fresh concept, and theming the property.
The building, located opposite the Marivent Palace, underwent renovation for months, taking its rating from three to four stars. Created with 97 rooms and two function rooms, the project was positioned as the first and only Joan Miró themed hotel in the world.
The hotel interior presents almost 30 works of art from the Catalan painter, donated by the artist’s family.
The venture was carried out thanks to an agreement with Successió Miró and The Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, uniting art and tourism, and encouraging what is a growing trend in this innovative sector.
The interior of the Hotel Joan Miró Museum was created by designer Xisco Gayá, in collaboration with Successió Miró, who contributed a total of 28 works, including etchings and lithographs – some from the ‘Allegro Vivace’ series, resulting in the most outstanding of hotel decorations.
Joan Punyet Miró, representative of Successió Miró, was responsible for training establishment staff on the artist’s remarkable life, works and career.
Guests can enjoy extra privileges, such as special visits to the Pilar and Joan Miró Museum, housing more than 6,000 works and featuring the former studio of the famous painter.
