With their superb creeks, coves and fine sand beaches, The Balearic Islands are among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. This archipelago, consisting of five main islands, has a tremendous number of advantages. The sight of its jagged chalky cliffs plunging down into the azure and turquoise waters of the sea below is breathtaking.
Famous for its partying, the islands attract visitors from all over the world seeking an exciting night life. However, more than just a beach resort, the archipelago is filled with many other magnificent attractions. The interior of the islands still bear the historical vestiges of successive invasions.
The islands of Mallorca and Minorca are the cradle of Talayotic culture characterized by small ancient stone structures known as talayots. On Mallorca, the archipelago’s largest island, there are Roman ruins, Arab baths and 13th century cathedrals. All of these historic remains give the small, narrow streets of the villages a striking charm.
Far from the hyperactivity of the coast, the back country possesses spectacular natural landscapes. On the slopes of the Serra de Tramuntana, the view of the islands is exceptional. At Porto Cristo, the Dragon Caves with their stalactite ceilings offer visitors a unique journey to the center of the earth.
Palma de Mallorca, the main city, possesses all of the island’s treasures including beaches caressed by the Mediterranean, a dizzying night life and impressive monuments like the Almudaina, an ancient Arab palace carved in ochre toned Mallorcan sandstone. The city also has one of the largest groups of Gothic structures in Europe.
Located in the heart of Palma, between the luxurious Jaume III Avenue and the Gothic quarter of the old city, the Puro Hotel is a veritable urban oasis. This former 18th century palace owes its modern soul to Mats Wahlström, the hotel’s Swedish owner, a globetrotter who wanted to make the Puro Hotel a refuge for modern day nomads. Thai, Cuban and Balinese inspirations create an authentic setting and blend in with the works of a contemporary Swedish artist.
The furniture in the rooms, in the form of steamer trunks, and the oriental decorations highlight the travel theme. The neutral tones of the fabrics accentuate the depth of the leather and wood, giving the 51 rooms a sensual and masculine ambiance. Some of them have a terrace with a Balinese bed for a romantic siesta over the rooftops of Palma.
The charm of the Puro Hotel also lies in the different volumes which make each space unique. The terrace has a vast pool for guests to cool off in during heat waves, and a second, more private solarium with a panoramic view of Palma, the port, the mountains, the Bellver castle and the cathedral. And if you prefer the sea to the pool, the shuttle will take you directly to the hotel’s private beach.
Partially outdoors, the restaurant proposes delicious Mediterranean cuisine served in a lounge atmosphere with typically Puro music. Blending genres like no other Mallorcan hotel, the Puro offers its guests a unique stay in a hype, cosmopolitan setting.
Some of the hotel’s doors were made in Thailand and transported to Mallorca. They have a circle in the center representing a mandala, the symbol of the Puro Hotel.
