Sant Francesc Hotel Singular
Plaça de Sant Francesc, Palma
A five-star property wrapped up in an intimate boutique hotel, the Sant Francesc is an ideal base for exploring the city of Palma. The neoclassical nineteenth-century building has been thoughtfully renovated, and modern amenities like the rooftop pool, gym, and updated guest rooms don’t overshadow the historic details. Soaring ceilings, original frescos, and crown moldings complement the neutral décor and contemporary, mostly Spanish art collection. Grab a drink in the lobby bar, which is centered around a Mallorcan courtyard, or at the rooftop pool, which transforms into a sushi lounge at night with views over the city’s many church spires. There’s a petite spa with a lengthy massage menu—try the Hawaiian-style lomi lomi nui. We did—and it was heaven.
