Located in the neighbourhood of La Lonja, right in the heart of the historic old town, Puro is Palma’s hippest boutique hotel.
A design hotel created from a restored mansion house, the Puro has a chic, contemporary ambience with a bohemian Eastern flavour to the décor. White and cream are the predominant colours, offset by colourful cushions and the casual black uniforms of the staff.
The 23 rooms and 3 suites in the main part of the hotel come with spacious bathrooms and all the latest technology, including music and video systems, plasma TVs and wireless internet access. There are two courtyard patios and a rooftop terrace with a plunge pool, sunbeds, and views across the old town.
The Opio restaurant serves Asian and Mediterranean cuisine, while the cocktail bar is one of the city's trendiest watering holes, and has a resident DJ until late at weekends.
A new addition to Puro is the standalone private wing, with 11 en suite bedrooms, an open-air hot tub, spa, kitchen and dining room, which can be rented in its entirety. There is 24-hour concierge service available and as with the hotel, guests have access to 'Oasis del Mar', the Puro's beach club, situated a mile away and served by a complimentary shuttle. This offers yoga in the mornings, a large pool, spa treatments and a restaurant, and becomes the Mallorcan capital's party venue par excellence in the evenings.
Why we love it
Conde Nast Traveller described Puro as 'an intoxicating cocktail of modern Marrakech meets Miami meets South East Asia.' All that just two hour 20 minutes' flight away.
