Palacio Can Marques – 5 star hotel in the old town Palma, Mallorca
Why stay in a hotel, when you can live in a palace?
History swirls around the cobblestones and windows of Palacio Can Marques, made for inquisitive, modern, luxury travellers, and yachtsmen – with nods to its adventurer roots. With its stylish heritage and warm hospitality, we invite our guest to be part of our family, to experience a warm welcome that lets our guest travel back in time for over 300 years, enjoying days in a real Majorcan Palace. A listed 18th-century residence with elegant interiors by Aline Matsika, an internationally recognized interior designer with offices in Paris, New York and Hamburg. She has created an eclectic and authentic collection of furniture, artwork and paintings. Considered a Purist Hotel where original features are still intact and antique furnishings sit alongside the latest technology, with an indisputable air of comfort, glamour and unparalleled space.
This entire Palace is truly mesmerising, exuding a sense of comfort, which is chic, yet with traditional charm and tranquillity. Beyond the lobby door, stroll along the 140 m² covered patio with its 11-metre high ceilings and gothic alabaster columns. From the patio rises the stately inverted imperial staircase. Have a seat in our 200 m² interior garden where shade is provided by large palm, cherry or fig trees, or you might wish to enjoy the fresh sea breeze on the roof terrace overlooking the Cathedral. Take a rest in the living suite library, full of glamorous décor, which includes antiques and curiosities from the hotel’s eclectic past. If you are on vacation, or even travelling on business, sometimes it is nice to have a handy resource for downtime reading material or just a place to escape from a hectic business trip or enjoy family vacation. If you are feeling energetic, work out in your exclusive Technogym, followed by a relaxing session in the steam room, a perfect finish to your exertions.
Open the door to your sleek and stylish suite, individually designed, where every detail engenders opulence and sophistication. Discover natural tones, custom-designed furnishings and many small details which resemble luxury yacht decoration. Allow yourself to be astonished by chandeliers from Murano in Italy, handwoven carpets, antique floor to ceiling windows, antique fireplaces. Refresh yourself in the luxury, airy bathrooms with premier wet rooms or large bathtubs enjoying the natural feel of walls panelled in tile or Corian, featuring unique antiques, original artwork and sculptures. Each suite has its own personality, which adds to the charm of the hotel. Enjoy the privacy of your very own in-suite massage thanks to their ample sizes ranging from 33 – 380 m². Time seems to move more slowly – allowing every day to be spent exactly as you wish.
We offer something for every mood or time of day, from an intimate breakfast under the vaulted ceilings or in the garden, to sipping cocktails in the lounge or choosing from one of the bottles in the champagne bar collection after a day’s sailing. When you have worked up an appetite, sit back in our restaurant, which serves Mediterranean cuisine with French flair and offers an exclusive list of carefully selected wines. We only source authentic local and French products using our gastronomic savoir faire.
At Palacio Can Marques, even breakfast is an extraordinary experience. Our staff will serve you coffee or tea prepared on the spot in elegant porcelain cups and saucers – just right for not losing that sublime aroma. Breakfast is served from 7.30 to 11.00, but if you prefer, you might want it to be served in your room.
We can arrange petit committee events for groups of friends, yachtsmen or for business. In addition to offering several menu options, we are pleased to provide a range of ideal settings for your meal; in the restaurant, the garden, on the roof terrace or even in the presidential Riad Suite. You will always feel a world away from the busy city life despite being only moments away.
Tucked away down a narrow street, behind a discreet entrance, its central location is within walking distance of international, well-known marinas on the Paseo Maritimo such as the Real Club Nautico de Palma, STP and Club de Mar, where hotel guests also have the possibility to arrange for private excursions on the 108 ft Sailing Super Yacht WinWin. We are also perfectly placed for sightseeing as well as being a great spot to discover the Es Baluard Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Palma or the numerous art galleries, restaurants and chic boutiques. Step outside, and you will have Palma de Mallorca at your feet. To find the city’s hotspots, speak to the hotel concierge.
