Palma Riad: A New 11 Suite Hotel in Palma, Mallorca
Opened in 2022, Palma Riad’s design is based on the concept of a traditional Riad – a historic definition where private rooms surround an open interior courtyard. Located in the very heart of Palma, this privileged location provides guests the ability to explore the city’s shops, art galleries, and restaurants, located steps outside the door. Synonymous with popular Moroccan Riad’s there is a similar thread carried throughout Palma Riad – small, exclusive, urban, located on a narrow street. Palma Riad has taken the concept and added design, luxury and nightlife elements to make this a singular style of hotel in the heart of Palma, Mallorca. The project has been designed by Barcelona based Pablo Peyra and his Studio.
The traditional Riad courtyard lies just beyond reception and is where magic begins to happen, particularly at night. An island with historical reflections of ancient times one can discover the Arab influence which occupied the island from the 10th to the 13th century, Mallorca has maintained some of the essence and legacy of this period. Although the hotel Palma Riad is not a direct historical connection to this era, the design of the hotel reaches deep into the history of the island creating an exotic and eclectic experience.
The property offers 11 exclusive suites, each with their own unique signature, where guests are ensured an experience not soon to be forgotten. Many original elements of the house have been respected and retained, including coffered ceilings, doors and windows. Combined with an amazing collection or art, antiques, one-of-a-kind objets d’art, and beautifully designed wallpaper, each room is an experience in and of itself.
The lush and richly textured interiors with dramatic lighting greet you in reception and carry throughout the hotel.
Distinct design in each guest room is a journey: comforting, magical, and restful with surprising details found uniquely in each room.
Some beautifully tiled baths take you into the concept of a Moroccan hammam while most rooms offer giant bathtubs and double showers. Others are more cave-like in their appearance. Many rooms have fireplaces, including some very decadently, in the bathrooms. Guests can certainly live out a little Arabian night fantasy with a bit of imagination.
Morokko Bar & Restaurant
Morokko Bar and Restaurant serves a fusion cuisine in an original and exclusive space. Thanks to an amazing location, it is a melting pot where locals and visitors alike can rub elbows. Dinner and cocktails are served in a memorable and most dramatic backdrop. The result of the menu is a combination of cultures located around the Mediterranean Sea, from Spain to Morocco, with an Asiatic influence, which can also be found throughout the hotel.
