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.
After a major three-year reformation, Port Calanova has unveiled its new look. The Palma marina now boasts a restaurant, Muelle 327 Gastrodock, complete with spacious terrace and panoramic view Sky Bar & Lounge, plus guestrooms directly next to the harbour. Calanova Sports Residence also has nine conference rooms, a swimming pool and a fitness centre. All this in addition to a brand-new marina and shipyard, alongside the port’s national sailing school, watersport, and boat charter centre.
“A touch of San Francisco in Mallorca” is how Bikini Island & Mountain Hotel Port de Sóller describes itself. The new four-star design hotel borrows from the California hippie movement to create fresh, funky surroundings, complete with Santaverde Spa and poolside Pikkini Bar. The hotel’s NENI restaurant overlooks Sóller’s harbour and offers modern Tel Avivian cuisine.
Ceylon art space
An intriguing link between Mallorca and Sri Lanka comes in the form of a new Palma art gal-lery. Stick No Bills curates, exhibits and sells rare travel posters dating from the late 1800s through to the early 1980s. You’ll also find distinctive fine art prints of original retro art-works at the cult design studio, which follows a flagship store on the increasingly popular South Asia island.
Pop-up dining comes to Peguera courtesy of restaurant Velería. Part of five-star Hesperia Mallorca Villamil hotel, the new eatery is taking guests on a journey across the Balearic Islands through taste, sound and visuals. Changing creative menus are complemented by artwork and music to give diners an immersive experience.
From Austria to Artà
Mallorca’s latest five-star hotel is putting Artà on the map. One of the largest spas on the island, the Carrossa Hotel Spa Villas centres around a historic northeast manor. True to its Austrian roots, emphasis is on healthy well-being with a seriously pampering spa, extensive gourmet offering and tailored golf packages.
New portals waterfront eatery
Just opened in Port Portals is a beach house-style terrace restaurant set right on the waterfront of the upscale marina neighbourhood. The first of its kind for the Umami Group, the UM Beach House La Calita combines regular events with a laid-back boho vibe, plus a menu offering sharing plates, grilled dishes, and creative cocktails.
Santa Catalina’s foodie incarnation continues with Cambusa Gusto Italiano. Newly opened on Carrer de la Fábrica, the Italian follows the success of a sister restaurant in the Caribbean island of Antigua, and also specialises in yacht catering.
