Opened in 2016 as a new breed of lifestyle boutique hotel, the four-star Nakar Hotel in the heart of Palma de Mallorca’s shopping district is as glam as it gets. Not only will you have the city’s best designer brands and high-fashion offerings right on your doorstep, but you’ll get to enjoy ravishing views from the upper floors. Thanks to a resident DJ, you can even set your hotel experience, at certain hours of the day, to a hip soundtrack.
Minimalist rooms and suites come with oak flooring, automated lighting, smart TVs and even hair straighteners, on request. Elsewhere, the light-filled lounges, stunning subterranean spa and roof-terrace deck with infinity pool make this urban set-up one of the city’s fanciest stays. There’s also the CUIT Bar and Restaurant for palate-pleasing Mallorcan cuisine, and you’ll find a swanky bar where you can savor daytime drinks and after-hours snacks – the perfect place to debut your new designer duds.
Rooms and suites
Offering state-of-the-art comfort, all of the 57 minimalist rooms and suites come with oak flooring, contemporary décor with soothing earth tones, stylish fixtures and fittings and plenty of in-room gadgetry. The soundproofed Double Standard room, larger Superior room and even larger Junior suite all come with a king-size bed (or twins), a pillow menu, a smart TV with satellite channels, complimentary Wi-Fi, a Nespresso machine and automated lighting.

Some city must-dos include splurging on designer clothing, marveling at the colossal Gothic cathedral La Seu, getting lost in the labyrinth of cobbled lanes, relaxing in the stunning gardens of 13th-century Almudaina Palace and checking out the modern masterpieces in the Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art. For other highlights, take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the city, people watch in Plaça Major, learn more about Joan Miró’s work at the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation and stock up on fresh produce at Mercat de l’Olivar – Palma’s largest food market.
How to Get There
The reception staff were extremely welcoming on arrival, nothing was too much trouble and they were very helpful with restaurant recommendations.
We booked 2 of the Junior Suites for 2 nights, the rooms were very spacious and modern with very nice touches from the huge tv to the large molten brown products and comfortable large twin beds.
A great selection at breakfast with a good coffee machine. The view from the restaurant and rooftop pool is superb, looking out over the city, sea and cathedral.
The hotel is located is a great location next to shops and restaurants and just a 10 minute walk to the cathedral.
We could not fault this hotel and will certainly be booking again when we next visit beautiful Palma.
We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel. Anyone visiting the beautiful city of Palma, I would highly recommend staying here. The staff made us feel so welcome and we even got a room upgrade. The rooms are spacious offering all modern amenities for even the most discerning guests. A great choice for breakfast and the views from the rooftop pool are amazing. Do not leave the hotel without a visit to the relaxing spa particularly after a day of sightseeing. We can’t wait to return!
