  1. 500 year old mansion… Wow, that’s amazing. There is so much history there. Mallorca has been climbing higher and higher on our must visit list. I have seen that natural beauty in the white cliffs and blue oceans and these luxury hotels are the perfect complement.

  2. I must admit I have never heard about The Balearic Islands, Spain but these luxury hotels coming up there make me think that it must be a wonderful place surely. Loved all the hotels, and specially Maria de Salut, Mallorca, such bright and spacious rooms are the ones I prefer. Thanks for sharing

  3. Wow these hotels truly has luxury written all over them. I love the modern design of the Ibiza hotel. And that cozy interior of the Maria de Salut, Mallorca hotel looks like it’s perfect for a staycation!

  4. I haven’t been to the Balearic islands for so long and never to The island of Ibiza.
    The Iberostar Hotel in Portals Nous interests me as this is my hotel chain of choice. The hip hotel in Talamanca looks very unique, an Instagrammable hotel!

  5. Yes, this is also my first time to hear The Balearic Islands. Wonderful places are worth sharing to let more people know and explore new places if they get a chance. I will travel The Balearic Islands if I have chance.Thanks for sharing.

  6. As someone who’s a sucker for all things heritage, I’m particularly interested in the Maria de Salut, Mallorca. That its a 500 a year old mansion with local cuisine, wooden ceiling and vintage charm – I’m sold!!!

  7. Ibiza has been on the bucket list for a long time now and whenever we do we would love to explore the other parts of Balearic Islands. These hotels sound great for awesome holiday, the colors and architecture of the Iberostar Grand Hotel Portals Nous is so welcoming so is the Sir Joan hotel, loved its facade design.

  8. I had been to Spain but missed going to Balearic islands. The luxurious stay in Balearic islands are exotic ones, specially the hotel in Talamanca, Ibiza. I liked its geometrical shape. That 500 year old mansion now renovated to luxury hotel is so tempting. It is also unique to have salt water pool inside the premises to relax. Great list and I am saving them.

  9. I am highly impressed with the modern architecture of the Ibiza and Mallorca (Portals Nous) hotels. They definitely scream luxury in terms of the design and feature. I would love to spend a night on these, even though luxury travel isn’t nearly my first choice.

  10. I’m really intrigued about the themed suites at the Portals Nous in Mallorca. I love Mallorca anyway and am a frequent visitor, but am always looking for new ways to enjoy a trip there. The Stargazer Suite has me very interested, as my husband is a keen amateur astronomer – and the skies can be beautiful in Mallorca at night. Of course private jacuzzis, a gourmet restaurant and 5 star service is something to visit for as well.

  11. I know these islands all too well! I went on holiday to Majorca for sooo many years when I was younger, my family loved it. The designer hotel looks extremely appealing – who wouldn’t want to stay there for a few nights? I’ve visited Palma before for a shopping trip and thought it was a lovely area. I’m loving all these choices
