That Balearic haven is Nobis Hotel Palma, the latest addition to the Nobis Hospitality Group — whose luxury portfolio includes Concepció by Nobis, Palma; Miss Clara, Stockholm; Blique by Nobis, Stockholm; and many other decadent getaways — and is housed in one of the oldest buildings to sit among the Gothic churches and scenic squares of Mallorca’s capital.
Fusing 1,000 years of history with Scandinavian and Spanish design, the hotel is arranged around two symmetrical interior patios, the architects and designers having worked closely with historic authorities to ensure many original elements referencing the building’s long history will remain; albeit infused with new life. A building with many stories to tell — it survived a fire and earthquake a century after its construction, before becoming the private home of noble Mallorcan families — in the mid 15th century it would undergo a Gothic transformation with vaulted ceilings and imposing archways, before two centuries later being reimagined in a Baroque style.
Today Nobis Hotel Palma, a member of Design Hotels, offers 37 guest rooms and suites, all steeped in the laid-back elegance and a personal take on contemporary luxury. Each room in unique in terms of shape influenced by the architectural base of the historical property, while sober shades and natural materials such as wool, leather and wood, create sophistication and a timeless appeal.
Chef Xema Álvarez heads the food and drink concept from signature restaurant NOI, to the cocktail lounge, and rooftop terrace with spectacular panoramic views. Seeking the Mediterranean touch with a side of Scandi-cool, Nobis Hotel Palma is set to redefine the luxury hospitality landscape, making it a must-visit for discerning travelers seeking an exceptional experience in the heart of Mallorca.
