Spain’s Mediterranean Islands are amongst our favourite escapes. So, to help you plan your spring escapade, we are turning our ‘Spotlight’ onto a new property that has opened in the historic old town of Palma, the chic capital of Mallorca.
We want to share news of small luxury hotel Gloria de Sant Jaume, an exquisitely restored Mallorquin mansion that has been thoughtfully reimagined as a 14–room small luxury hotel.
Almost hidden amongst the honey-coloured streets and saffron-hued alleyways of the old town quarter, boutique hotel Gloria de Sant Jaume Palma is tucked away from the city bustle in the quiet Carrer Sant Jaume, a narrow street between Avenida Jaime III and the city’s elegant Rambla. Gloria de Sant Jaume is well positioned for guests looking to enjoy the cultural, historical and gastronomic attractions of the city. Forget the need for a rental car – explore on foot, making discoveries that can only be enjoyed when you get lost in the labyrinthine streets of the alluring old town.
Design & Ambiance
The hotel’s distinctive 16th century stonework and arches resonate with the history of the city. Staying here one can feel part of the authentic Palma. This is a city that marries the past with a dynamic creative present of culture, art and contemporary style.
The hotel’s design balances four centuries of historical features, with elegant, sophisticated interiors and outdoors spaces that promise to embrace guests with a feeling of tranquillity, privacy and style.
The property is not looking to standout for just its characterful and elegant design and chic old town location; small luxury hotel Gloria de Sant Jaume Palma focuses on providing personalised, thoughtful service to each of its guests.
This month the hotel has announced its new Chef, the acclaimed Javier Gardonio. His expertise has been showcased in some of the island’s finest restaurants, and he is already making El Patio de Glòria the city’s new destination restaurant. This café, restaurant and cocktail bar is open all day; indulge in a generous breakfast; try a traditional Sunday morning Vermut or a relaxing Brunch; and book a table for relaxed, sophisticated seasonal dining.
This Balearic bolthole has 14 guest rooms, with 5 categories, each with their own character, yet all with strikingly authentic features including vintage floor tiles, historic roof timbers, and honey-coloured sandstone walls.
Expect plenty of exquisite details.
The bijou basement spa with 14m pool and sauna, steam bath and relaxation area looks so smart!
But with the brilliant Balearic sunshine, chances are guests will want to be on the roof terrace, which also boasts a plunge pool and jacuzzi, where one can dream away the day, lost in the romantic views out across the rooftops of Palma.
We’ll see you there!
