Cupid played a part in the story of the 5-star Sant Francesc Hotel Singular. Members of the Soldevila family – which owns the Majestic Hotel Group – had been looking for historical buildings in Madrid and Lisbon, to develop into a hotel unlike any other.
Andres Soldevila Ferrer tells how his brother was in love with a Mallorcan girl . . . which led to the family discovering Palma.
On the day that Andres’s brother proposed marriage to his girlfriend, the family was walking around the old town and saw this 19th-century neo-classical-style mansion. Located in a pleasant square opposite the Sant Francesc Basilica, the building was the noble Alomar Femenia family’s former home.
The Soldevila family recognized the potential of the property and of Palma itself, and a project was born. A sensitive and impeccable redevelopment – involving specialists in architecture, interior design, and artisan crafts – began.
Opened in 2015, this unique hotel opened, offering guests a new type of luxury: more informal, but powered by professionalism and aesthetics. Savvy sophisticated travellers from around the world stay here for its excellent service, unpretentious luxury, beautiful design, and immaculately restored traditional Mallorcan architectural features.
Attention to detail is a hallmark evident in everything from the fabric of the building, furnishings, and specially commissioned artworks, to the immaculate attentive service.
General manager Ilka Karl and her team are dedicated to ensuring their guests have a flawless experience of the hotel, and the island. They are delighted to offer advice about the best of Mallorca, so guests feel pampered even when outside the hotel. The team feels rewarded by the smiles of people who – having been sad to leave on their previous stay – choose to check in again.
The 2016 Condé Nast Traveller’s Readers’ Choice Awards’ named it one of the ‘Best 50 Hotel in the World’ and ‘Top Hotel in Spain and Portugal’.
In November 2016, the hotel appointed the internationally experienced Alfonso Lillo as Quadrat restaurant’s executive chef.
“We are passionate about what we do,” says Andres Soldevila Ferrer. “Providing guests with the opportunity to experience the mystique of a stay at Sant Francesc Hotel Singular is how we offer added value.” And some added romance too.
