Palma is the capital of Mallorca.
Mallorca is a Spanish island known for its rich cultural heritage, top-notch food and spectacular views.
And that's almost enough justification required to point your next vacation in that direction.
Here to seal the deal is El Llorenç Parc de la Mar, a gorgeous new hotel located in the cobble-stoned La Calatrava quarter of Palma's Old Town. It has 33 guest rooms ranging from cozy to spacious, with plenty of sea views, king beds and custom furniture throughout.
That comfort extends to the spa, which features an updated take on traditional Arab baths. Book a massage or do a full thermal circuit by availing yourself of the heated pool, ice fountain, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.
When you're hungry, Dins Santi Taura is the on-site restaurant serving up traditional island cuisine made with seasonal ingredients via a tasting menu or a la carte menu. That's your chance to eat fresh seafood like the local red prawns or indigenous meats like the Mallorcan suckling pig. There's plenty of wine and other fine beverages to wash it all down.
Head up to the roof, and you'll find a cocktail bar, snacks and Palma’s longest infinity pool. It's lined with comfy Balinese daybeds for you to perch upon with a drink in hand while looking onto the sea or cathedral below.
If ever you were going to photobomb someone's perfectly-staged selfie, this would be the place.
