… according to publishers Condé Nast Johansens. The hotel in question is the five-star Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden, which received this accolade for 2022. It’s one of only five hotels in Spain to receive a Johansen Award for Excellence for this year.
Can Bordoy is located in Palma’s atmospheric La Long district, and the jewel in its crown (for me, anyway) is its rear garden. Guests staying in the hotel have access to the heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, screened off from those who visit only to eat or have a drink in the peaceful outdoor space. Guests can also use the rooftop terrace and basement spa.
The hotel’s restaurant, Botànic, offers a mainly plant-based cuisine (although fish and meat dishes are on the menu too), from the talented chef Andrés Benítez who has previous Michelin-star restaurant experience and has been at Can Bordoy since it opened.
Can Bordoy has 24 suites, all of which have an opulent feel. If you’re the type of person who can’t pass a piece of velvet without stroking it, you’ll be kept busy staying in one of these suites.
We had a wonderful one-night stay in Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden for Valentine’s 2019 – shortly after the hotel had opened. If, with Valentine’s Day less than month away, you’re considering having a romantic night away in Mallorca’s capital, Palma, this hotel is one you may wish to check out. And check into.
