Palma de Mallorca's spires and labyrinthine cobbled streets are best admired from the stunning rooftop terrace of Hotel Tres, a slick meets rustic bolt-hole set around a courtyard oasis, in the heart of Palma. Part of this hotel is a 16th century palace while the rest is modern. Together they achieve a rustic Mallorcan charm with contemporary overtones that feature white decor and fabrics, glass and marble. The ambience is cool and relaxing. Take a sauna, then plunge into the rooftop pool with views over the Gothic cathedral. Lie on the sundeck with a drink from the bar before heading into town. Outside the front gates, you are within walking distance of the town s attractions and close to the remains of the Roman city, Pollentia. Hotel Tres is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
