Hotel Focus: Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden, Palma De Mallorca

Friday 22 February 2019

With over 30 flights to Palma a week in the height of summer, this charming Spanish city on the island of Mallorca is the ideal choice for a sun-filled escape. If you’re looking for a stylish bolt-hole to serve as your home from home, the newly opened Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden won’t disappoint. This beautiful boutique hotel combines impeccable design, next-level dining and an unbeatable location for the perfect indulgent stay.

Dating back to the 16th Century, this building at the heart of historic Palma has been restored to its former splendour for the opening of this elegant new hotel in December 2018. Located on one of Palma’s most famous streets (the Calle Forn de La Glòria winds its way from Palma’s Old Quarter to the city’s seafront), the hotel provides an ideal base from which to explore the Balearic capital.

Tucked away along a winding street, you’d never expect to find the city’s largest private garden hidden behind Can Bordoy’s majestic façade. This beautiful oasis in the middle of the city contains a heated pool, where guests can swim all year round, an open-air pergola for massages and a lovely terrace, where you’ll find visitors mingling for breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. The garden is such an integral part of the property that designers have tried to recreate some of its natural elements inside the hotel with features such as plant walls.

The hotel’s interior owes its stunning look to the vision of founder and chairman, Don Mikael Hall and the work of prize-winning architecture studio, OHLAB. The hotel’s design flawlessly combines old and new to preserve the building’s original character and protect the Balearic capital’s historical heritage, while also providing a contemporary luxury style. Restoring the building in a way that embellishes the passing of time and filling it with opulent fabrics and antique artwork, has given the hotel a deliciously decadent feel.

Meant to be a destination within itself, you could easily spend your whole time in this captivatingly romantic hotel, exploring its warren of secret corridors and private areas. Spend some time reading in the cosy library or take a seat in the beautifully designed bar while you sip in one of the hotel’s signature cocktails. For ultimate indulgence and relaxation head to the inviting spa or take yourself up to the spectacular roof terrace to enjoy spell-biding views of the city below.

Of course, no great holiday is complete without great food and Can Bordoy’s gastronomic offering is just as enticing as the rest of the hotel. Chef Andrés Benitez, with over 7 years as head chef in a Michelin-starred restaurant under his belt, has created a menu of creative dishes that are both delicious and full of nutritional value. Using organic products and lots of locally grown produce, Benitez hopes his unique culinary concept will appeal to both the health-conscious diner and the most exacting gourmands.
