Purobeach Illetas is the latest uber cool beach club from the ever growing Puro Group and is located in the affluent resort of Ses Illetas, Calvia. This beautiful outpost is the jewel in the crown and the flagship of the international group of hotels and beach clubs in Mallorca.
Luxurious Magazine’s Jamie Ndah was invited to the Grand Opening party and was granted “access all areas” to experience the epitome of luxury lifestyle on offer at the newest European playground.
Mallorca is the largest island in the Balearic Islands archipelago which is part of Spain and positioned in the Mediterranean. It’s blessed with a warm, sunny climate, lush and verdant surroundings with a stunning array of mountains, vineyards and beaches.
My flight from the UK was swift and pleasant and I landed in the capital Palma which is vibrant, stylish and brimming with energy. My taxi took approximately 15 minutes from the airport to the hotel which gave me an indication that this petite destination is perfect for a weekend getaway.
I was staying at Purohotel Palma which is also part of the Puro Group and is an ultra-modern, chic, boutique residence located in the old town of Palma de Mallorca. The impressive building is converted from an 18th-century palace and boasts 51 unique bedrooms and suites which the majority of the bedrooms overlook the central courtyard which consists of natural white stone adorned with palms and artistic furniture.
My bedroom was very state-of-the-art, air-conditioned and fully furnished with slick, dark varnished pieces and overlooked the patio courtyard. A generously sized room with a king bed was welcomed as were all the other luxury amenities in place such as an HD fully interactive digital TV, modern multi-media system, complimentary Wi-Fi and a well-stocked mini bar.
The dark wood décor theme continued throughout the bathroom with an inviting sunken bath tub, power shower and soft and fluffy bathrobe with slippers completed the room nicely.
Purohotel Palma also has a cool bar, inner patio areas, rooftop terrace with swanky day beds, a private west wing and a tranquil SPA space with massage rooms that offer a variety of treatments, sauna and a Turkish bath. I also had the opportunity to dine at the attractive OPIO Bar & Restaurant which is the a la carte eatery at the hotel and serves a variety of Asiatic and Mediterranean dishes. The ambience is calm and welcoming with a contemporary feel that features neutral colours, refined lighting and eye-catching modern art.
The gastronomy and service were excellent and I thoroughly recommend the succulent Fillet of duck breast served with wok vegetables, Foie gras cream and almond praline. For dessert lovers, I would suggest the Pistachio Air which was a heavenly soft sponge pistachio and meringue cake coupled with white chocolate and coconut ice-cream which was simply mouthwatering.
