Offering sweeping views of the Bay of Palma and its luxury yacht-packed harbour, this five-star Gran Luxe property is conveniently located on Paseo Maritimo, a mere stone’s throw from the capital’s Gothic Quarter and its stunning cathedral. The environment here is one of understated class, with shaded bars and terraced areas, both an indoor and outdoor pool, and comfortably sized guestrooms.
The outdoor saltwater pool is sheltered from the world beyond by a row of palm trees, and offers a peaceful respite from the buzz and chatter of the coastal promenade below. Overlooking this is the famed Dry Bar, curated by mixologist, Javier De Las Muelas. Enjoy expertly crafted cocktails, delectable small plates and a backdrop of the cathedral, promenade and the Mediterranean Sea. Elsewhere at Gran Melia Victoria, guests can feast on modern Basque grill at Ikatza restaurant, an establishment with an elegant dining room and panoramic views over the bay from its outdoor terrace. Enjoy dishes deeply rooted in tradition with touches of modern flair. The bright and airy international breakfast buffet in the Marivent restaurant will start your day in the right way, once again with both indoor and alfresco dining options.
The Gran Melia Victoria’s rooms were fully renovated in 2016, providing an extra touch of modernity and comfort. From classic rooms to elaborate suites, the warmth and attention to detail of the décor and furnishings is evident at every turn. Sea and cathedral view rooms and suites enjoy a private outdoor terrace as well as a hydro massage bath in suites. All rooms come equipped with flat-screen televisions, air conditioning or heating, safe and a well-stocked minibar.
A selection of wellbeing services are present on site to relax the mind, rejuvenate the soul and revitalise the body. The indoor wellness area includes a heated pool with views of the gardens, sauna and a selection of massage and treatments on request. A fitness centre offers the latest cardiovascular and weight training equipment, complete with a bay view.
Owing to its unique city centre waterfront location, the Gran Melia Victoria is within easy reach of Palma’s most enticing attractions. Take the Real Club Náutico de Palma for example. Founded in 1948, it’s the oldest sailing club in the Balearic Islands and known throughout the world. In fact, the Spanish royal family participates in its regattas. The Palma Auditorium, one of Europe’s most magnificent symphony concert halls, makes for an ideal post-dinner entertainment destination. The same can be said for Casino de Mallorca, the island’s most renowned casino.
The island’s airport is approximately 20 minutes from the Gran Melia Victoria. Bikes can be hired from the hotel, too – an ideal way to explore the sights of the promenade whilst taking the sea air and stretching one’s legs. The Gran Melia Victoria is a truly unique city hotel.
Gran Melia Victoria will guarantee interconnecting rooms subject to availability.
