Carrossa Hotel and Spa

The Pools

A choice of three. The main pool is nestled perfectly in front of the hotel, where you can plunge and gaze out to sea. It’s all about peace and tranquilly here at this adults only hotel.

El Llorenç Parc de la Mar 

Five star El Llorenç Parc de la Mar is set in a gloriously tranquil spot adjacent to Palma’s city walls overlooking the Bay. On the edge of the historic quarter, this neighbourhood of La Calatrava is one of the oldest in Palma. Swedish designer Magnus Ehrland tapped into the history of area and imaginatively incorporated a Moorish influence of geometric motifs throughout the hotel. Dark wood lattice-work, tiling detailing Arabic stars and walnut parquet floors blend seamlessly with the hotel’s mix of contemporary art and vintage photography. 

The Pools

Two to choose from. Head up to the 5th floor and settle into a sunbed. This really is the best spot for dreamy sea views. Head to the lower ground floor and splash into one of the largest spa pools in the old town.
