Some very exclusive locations do not boast many hotels; Puerto de Andratx for example is home to some of the most spectacular villas and mansions for sale, Mallorca has to offer. The one and only hotel, “Villa Italia”, in Port de Andratx is a discreet and exclusive sea front hotel famous for its exquisite cuisine. In other hip locations like Puerto Portals and Port Adriano, you will also find hotels for sale in Mallorca but they are small and very individually designed – no high-rise bed towers in Mallorca’s super-rich locations.
Elsewhere, the developers of Mallorca’s tourist industry have not been that considerate and have cemented the coast line with one high-rise hotel after the other. The main bulk of tourism has been cleverly “ghettoed” in various areas, in a way also strictly sticking to a certain nationality in order to avoid unnecessary upsets! Here, in these tourist hotspots such as Magalluf, Playa de Palma or Cala Ratjada, the concentration of hotels in one location is astonishing; an investment in a hotel for sale in Mallorca in one of these places is a complete win situation.
Not all people who visit Mallorca come here to sit on the beach all day and then go drinking until they drop at night. These visitors are not really interested in Mallorca’s landscape or what the island has to offer. On the other hand, many visitors have realised that Mallorca has its “loud and lively” corners which can be avoided and that Mallorca also is a peaceful haven for those seeking tranquillity and who appreciate the beauty of Mallorca’s nature. Over the recent years, many country retreats have been opening, so-called “finca hotels” which offer perfect conditions to their clients looking for a relaxing vacation.
Some of these hotels for sale in Mallorca are actually former historic estates; the families have decided to let them financially maintain themselves whilst at the same time offering visitors a totally different holiday concept and a level of modern luxury combined with the authentic air of yesteryear. These Mallorca hotels have an individual charm and atmosphere that no modern, built from scratch hotel for sale in Mallorca could possibly offer. Many of these traditional finca hotels in Mallorca even stay open all year round, not like the hotels in strictly tourist resorts. They also allow the visitor an insight into the day to day life in Mallorca and form a direct connection to the locals as many are family run – a fascinating experience that many holiday-makers repeat year after year, shunning the over crowded coastal resorts.
Particularly in the island capital, Palma, this type of hotel is becoming more and more popular and proves to be highly profitable investment opportunity. Boutique hotels for sale in Mallorca in trendy Palma districts such as Santa Catalina or La Calatrava are favourite stop-offs for the chic international scene. Some boast pools and / or bar areas on their roof terraces where people can enjoy the most amazing views over Palma and the bay whilst slurping a chilled G&T!! These hotels are also absolutely affordable considering the luxurious interiors they have, they are perfect and more intimate alternatives to the established major city hotels that used to dominate in Palma.
This is not only a trend in the city, though, you can find charming boutique hotels in most towns and villages now, majestic town palaces have been lovingly renovated and offer visitors a totally different style holiday. The visitor can enjoy and participate in the local life in one of Mallorca’s delightful villages where time seems to stand still! The contrast to the busy sea side resorts could not be any more astounding, especially for first time visitors. Two worlds meet here: staying in a village hotel in historic Alcúdia old town and diving into the hustle and bustle of this international resort with numerous bars and discos! Mallorca is indeed quite an amazing island, modern life meets tradition and both live in complete harmony. Take your pick which type of hotel is for you, a modern hotel for sale in Mallorca by the sea or in one of the villages, Mallorca caters for and tolerates all tastes.
