An amazing urban retreatWhen we decided to visit Palma we were looking for a nice boutique hotel with personality. We were lucky because we found a little gem. Hotel Balanguera is a heaven of peace with an impressive design.
Our room was beautiful. Simple, rustic, minimalistic, quiet, mediterranean...Not at all opulent, just comfortable, simply charming and perfect for a night of rest. We couldn’t hear a sound, it was like a white little cosy nest.
The hotel has a fantastic terrace with a little swimming pool and loungers to relax. The time we spent there was a total highlight of our trip. We were completely alone reading and napping, there was soft background music… life’s good!
We loved breakfast. It was served in a huge family style table and it was full of fresh baked pastries, several types of bread, cold meats, cheese, nuts, yoghurt, juices… everything natural and organic. I loved that they offered fresh mint and rosemary, such a nice touch!
Although the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, they have a nice international room service menu. Sadly, we didn’t order room service this time. They do offer some drinks in the bar at the lobby, which is like a cosy living room with hand made cushions, a fireplace, a library with plenty of books to read, sofas and wonderful contemporary wall art.
The only thing that I didn’t love is the location, a ten to fifteen minute walk to the city center and the promenade. But after those huge breakfasts you can use a nice walk, so it’s fine ;)
