The characteristics of luxury hotels on Mallorca
Because it’s one of the most appreciated tourist destinations in the world, Mallorca has increased and enhanced the services on offer to its visitors. Among these exclusive tourist services, its hotel offer stands out because of its great quality, variety, and constant innovation. In recent years, in-depth modernisation, reconversion and specialisation work has been carried out on the island, and this has led to the creation of new 5-star Mallorcan hotels.
Spectacular rooms offering large spaces, equipped with all kinds of comfort, gourmet cuisine, incredible swimming pools surrounded by gardens and Balinese beds, spa and wellness areas... Below we'll take a look at what the best luxury hotels on Mallorca are like.
1. Quality and personalised service
Generally speaking, all hotels on Mallorca can state that they offer good service, but the truth is that it's the 5-star hotels that really focus on creating the very best experience for each guest. In fact, one of the key requirements to enter the luxury hotel category on Mallorca is to be thoroughly oriented towards personalised service and to provide the best quality standards at all times.
2. Larger spaces
Another essential requirement for a 5-star hotel on Mallorca is that the double rooms must be at least 17 m2, and the bathroom with shower should add another 5 m2 to that measurement. All Zafiro Hotels 5-star hotels exceed this standard by far, with exclusive rooms that measure at least 40 m2.
Following these requirements, every luxury hotel on Mallorca should also be equipped with spaces that provide each guest with an experience with a difference, and have all kinds of services that contribute to providing maximum comfort during the stay, such as telephone, air conditioning, minibar, safe...
A good example of this is the Zafiro Palace Andratx, one of the new luxury hotels on Mallorca, recently built in Camp de Mar. This hotel boasts 304 suites that are specifically designed to guarantee exclusivity, comfort, and privacy. And, to make them as tailor-made as possible, this hotel offers up to eight different room categories here in Andratx, where the smallest one is the Junior Suite, 46 m2, and the largest one is the Owner Suite, 194 m2.
3. Terraces, jacuzzi and private pools
Any 5-star establishment must be ready to adapt to its guests' changing preferences. So, as visitors have started to prioritise private outdoor areas (garden, pool, jacuzzi), the best luxury hotels on Mallorca have been renovated to accommodate this. This is clearly visible throughout Zafiro Hotels' Palace range, with the modern swim-up suites and rooms like the Zafiro penthouse suite with a private mini pool on its specious 58-m2 terrace.
4. Gourmet cuisine
Every hotel has to make sure there is excellent food on offer, but when it comes to luxury hotels on Mallorca, the cuisine becomes a benchmark, and it has to act as a guarantee for the guests. That's why it's essential that the hotel has an additional restaurant to complement the buffet restaurant, and that this other restaurant is a gourmet restaurant. Again using our Zafiro Palace Andratx as an example, we have as many as five restaurants to choose from there: one is a buffet restaurant and the other four offer exquisite menus featuring luxury international cuisine.
5. Premium services
All the services and facilities at a 5-star hotel on Mallorca must offer the best quality and guarantees, as well as being both distinctive and innovative. As a list of minimums, luxury hotels must always have several large swimming pools, a gym, a spa, and a wellness area. And, of course, a 24-hour reception team available to provide personalised service to all guests, whenever they need it.
