Mallorca is an island in movement. Between the number of boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants, lively bars, and cool design shops opening, it’s safe to say that Palma, and the island as a whole, is thriving. Mallorcan heritage, from its food to its architecture, is being revived in new and exciting ways. While cool concepts in clothing and design are offering customers more interesting choices with a focus on quality and well made goods, favourite local shops are expanding their presence to offer loyal customers more choice and better service.
The demand by chefs and home cooks for more organic ingredients, and particularly seasonal and local produce, has brought about more options for buying better quality products. Luxury is no stranger to Mallorca, and new businesses are opening up from yachts to exclusive nightclubs to prestigious hotel rooms, expanding on this already flourishing market.
