The Urban Oasis

Situated in Palma, the Mediterranean metropolis and capital city of Mallorca, the Puro Hotel (Puro Oasis Urbano) stands as a mecca to those seeking a luxurious and exclusive retreat. Titled as an urban oasis, this chic boutique hotel embraces the perfect blend of old and new, rural and cosmopolitan, that radiates throughout the compact city of Palma itself. Converted from a fourteenth Century palace, the simple stone exterior of the Puro Hotel conceals the luxurious grandeur found within. At once modest and sumptuous, the hotel unveils itself in a series of interesting contemporary design with Arabic infusions exuding ethnic and bohemian charm. The gilt furnishings, embroidered fabrics and draped décor found throughout the hotel create a plush and sensuous ambiance. With only 26 rooms, including two suites and six junior suites, and views overlooking a central oasis of tropical palms, flowers and fountains, the hotel retains its exclusive slice of serenity.  As innumerable amenities are available including a 52 inch flat-screen TV, DVDs, wireless internet, a digital library and Bose sound system, there is little need to venture far from your room! In-room massages can also be arranged for the utmost indulgent and pampering experience. Further decadence emanates throughout the hotel facilities.  The roof-top terrace, boasting its own plunge pool and deluxe four-poster beds, offers breath-taking mountain vistas looming over the terracotta rooftops of Palma’s Old Town. While peaceful and tranquil by day, the Puro Hotel comes to life at night with the buzzing Opio Restaurant and cocktail bar.  As chilled music resonates throughout the restaurant, guests can enjoy the gastronomic delights of Asian fusion cuisine.  Above the restaurant is the elegant, open-plan cocktail bar where stylish ‘A’ list guests sip their cocktails by soft candlelight in a Moroccan boudoir setting. For further facilities shuttles are available to Puro Hotel’s opulent sister complex, Puro Beach Club. Situated just fifteen minutes down the coast, this poolside terrace with its own seawater pool offers the ultimate relaxation.  Positioned upon a mini peninsular in the middle of Palma Bay, this sparkling setting provides the perfect place for guests to unwind to the soporific sounds of the ocean, as sailing boats and windsurfers glide by in the distance. With Mallorca’s capital city on its doorstep, Puro Hotel is ideally located for guests to explore the stylish and cosmopolitan city centre. Brimming with cafes, restaurants, art galleries, theatres and museums, Palma is perfect place for the trendy, 21st Century traveller to enjoy world-class culture and entertainment. Guests can also embrace Palma’s fusion of old and new by venturing further afield to explore the warren of winding streets, hidden courtyards and historic buildings located in Palma’s Old Town. Perfectly located for shopping, wining and dining and beach relaxation, Puro Beach offers the ultimate luxurious stay. Designed with elegance and exclusivity in mind, this chic hotel embodies the true glamour and bohemian flair of Mallorca. Bursting with style and sophistication, this Arabian palace is fit for a king! Isabella Rose is a content writer for MyDestinationInfo.com.

  1. Majorca is actually a beautiful island and I would definitely visit again, we drove round a bit but I’m never sure where’s nicest to stay. We didn’t get to see Palma so interesting article and somewhere I would consider!

  2. Visited Palma but certainly didn’t stay somewhere like this. Like the sound of unwinding to the sounds of the ocean….

  3. Do you know i have never been to majorca, i have heard loads of great things about it and fancy visiting palma at some time. where else would anybody recommend?

  4. You really need to hire a car to drive round and see the scenery as it’s stunning (although some of the windy roads are a bit hairy!) Soller is definitely worth a visit and Puerto Pollensa is one of the quieter resorts to stay in if you’re trying to avoid a Megaluf style holiday! We stayed in Sa Coma which was a good base and had a nice beach but maybe not as pretty as a lot of the island and had quite a lot of English cafes / bars so didn’t really feel we were seeing the real Mallorca there.

  5. Thanks emily for the top tips, i do fancy a short relaxing break in mallorca but want to avoid all the tourist bars and restaurants and see some of the real mallorca.

  6. I would def avoid Magaluf at all costs! As Emily says Puerto Pollensa is lovely but if you prefer a cosmopolitan area, stick with Palma.
