Palma’s most Instagrammable hotels

no thumb

We look forward to our holiday all year. We dream about it, plan it, then tell everyone else about it too! On Facebook, Instagram, in WhatsApp group chats…and I, for one, love to show off where I’m staying. That’s why I thought I’d show you these seriously Instagrammable hotels in Palma, Majorca. When my love for travel and interior design become one? That’s the perfect holiday for me. And if you feel much the same, I’m sure you’ll appreciate the beauty of my top picks below.

 

Best for cocktails

Cook’s Club Palma Beach

Cook’s Club Hotels and cocktails go happily hand-in-hand, and a snap of one of these colourful creations is definitely worthy of an Instagram post or two. The bar here’s the brainchild of Berlin-based mixologist, David Widemann, who’s magicked up a menu with everything from a French Sex on the Beach (oh là là!) to firm favourites like the Moscow Mule. So sit back, get sipping and enjoy the chilled out poolside tunes.

 

Best for food

Iberostar Palma

If you’re longing for a taste of five-star dining without paying an arm and a leg (or even leaving the hotel walls!) you’ll love trying out Iberostar Llaut Palma’s Katagi Blau restaurant. Enjoy a taste of the East on the shores of Majorca: it’s an Asian restaurant fused with a Mediterranean flavours. The delicious dishes are prepared using only the freshest local products, and I dare you to resist pulling out your phone to film the Teppanyaki chefs at work.

 

Best for views

Fontanellas Playa

Wow… what can I say about this picture, other than those beautiful shades of blue would certainly leave me with some serious holiday envy if I saw them pop up on my feed! Fontanellas Playa will give you stunning, unobstructed views out to sea from its glass-balcony rooftop. There’s also space to dine, soak up the sun and relax in a jacuzzi (why not, you’re on holiday). Just don’t forget to snap the glamorous yachts in the distance.

 

Best for chilling

Sunprime Monsuau

Sunprime Hotels are the perfect place to relax and unwind. They combine all the best bits about holidays: great food, spa time, gym sessions and beautiful design. It’s a great place to appreciate the finer things in life and really soak up the atmosphere of the destination. Plus, you can join a yoga session to slow the pace right down. You’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated before you can type #namaste on your Instagram caption.

 

So there you have it: Palma’s most Instagrammable hotels. Are there any you’ve stayed at worth adding to the list? What makes a hotel snap-happy to you? Let me know in the comments below.

    Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru Sets Up Turtle Identification Program

    Tracking-face-patterns.jpg

    The team at Banyan Tree Marine Lab now track sea turtles residing and frequenting on house reefs of both Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and Angsana Ihuru.

    In January 2019 the resort launched the Turtle ID Program, tracking populations of sea turtles that either frequent or reside on the house reefs of the two luxury resorts and the nearby reefs, with the aim of monitoring the populations of these highly-endangered animals.

    The Marine Lab Team uses technical software to identify the individual face pattern on the left or right side of the turtle’s head. Once the pattern has been mapped out, it is stored in a database and these patterns make it easy to compare and identify new turtles.

    Tracking the face patterns

    The resort encourages guests to contribute towards the initiative, by submitting images of turtles they encounter when snorkeling out on the reefs. The critically endangered Hawksbill Turtle is frequently spotted on the reefs, with a high number of new turtles being identified. Each individual is named, so the team can more easily identify them while guiding snorkels.

    The Banyan Tree Marine Lab actively engages guests and associates with ongoing Marine Conservation activities and initiatives, such as Marine Talks given on topics that include turtle and shark conservation, effective reef restoration and monitoring, and a novel long-term shark monitoring programme, which aims to critically assess the effectiveness of the nationwide shark-fishing ban, introduced across the Maldives in 2010.

    Ali — One of the most commonly seen turtle

    The Turtle ID Program started 6 months ago, is just one of many new initiatives being implemented by the Banyan Tree Marine Lab and its Sustainability team. Another unique initiative involves the upcycling of abandoned drift-Ghost Nets, a major threat to sea turtles, into colorful bracelets; raising awareness about these dangers to marine animals, as well as the overall threat of marine plastic pollution to animal biodiversity and the health of our natural environments, as well as our own health.

    Banyan Tree was founded with the core value of driving sustainable development. The company aims to embrace the natural environment, continually striving for social and environmental responsibility. With this in mind, the Marine Lab was built in 2004, the pioneer in the Maldives is the first of its kind to be funded and built on a private resort, where guests can learn about marine conservation and partake in the many sustainability activities on offer including coral planting, reef cleaning, shark monitoring and daily stingray feeding sessions.

    Located in the North Male’ Atoll, 25 minutes speedboat journey from the airport, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is an idyllic place for a relaxing holiday. With only 48 villas dotting around the island, privacy can easily be attained. The resort has a restaurant and a bar, a Marine Lab, PADI Gold Palm 5-Star resort dive centre and an award-winning Banyan Tree Spa.
