Rachel Story, editor at the UK magazine “Hello Fashion!” Reveals her personal highlights from the hippest island town of the Balearic Islands.
Whether Cocktails enjoy in the coolest bar of the city or shop in the favorite concept store-the stylist Rachel Story, who also writes for “Hello Fashion!”, Reveals her top 5 hotspots in Palma.
“One of the most luxurious hotels on the island is a former military base hiding on a cliff in the Bay of Palma. With the seemingly endless pool and the cozy sunbeds, where you could sleep all day, this hotel is my favorite place to relax. If you’re hungry, make sure you reserve a table at “The Fortress”-the restaurant is conveniently located on the hotel grounds. The ox tail, the black truffles and the celery are not from this world – an absolute secret tip! “
“For an extended brunch, the Hospes Maricel is the go-to-spot: a converted 16th century villa with a stunning view and a breakfast that is unbeatable. The delicious menu consists of eight (!) Courses (sweet pastry and yoghurt compote, just to name a few). The fans of hearty breakfast will also get their money’s worth on the standard menu, because they will get the best cuts-a bit of Iberian ham and cheese?Absolutely!”
“Less than 15 minutes away from Palma is this perfect location for shopping and dining. I love the sushi at Lucy Wang and an extensive windowwalk at Arias and Corner-my last accomplishments from her great accessory range are the Celine trapezoid bag and a pair of Aquazzura Belgravia espadrilles, which I have only recently enjoyed. “
“My absolute favorite location when it comes to cocktails. The ambience, the decoration, the backdrop – all this makes this bar exceptional. If you are there, definitely visit the top floor and enjoy the view of the quiet courtyard with the large aviary with the colorful birds that accompany your evening with cheerful chirping. “
“One of the must-see concept stores in Palma: Opened by Klaskäll, one of the founders and designers of the luxury brand Gant, and Barbara Bergmann, a graphic designer, this shop offers everything from fashion and accessories to furniture and fragrances. I always find something beautiful and unique. On my last trip, a True-Grace-Moroccan rose candle has found its way into my suitcase, which now makes my living room smell of a fragrant spa. “
