Travel Tuesday - Gran Melia De Mar
Hey All.. So over bank holiday our love for Mallorca continued and were were lucky enough to stay at The Gran Melia De Mar one of our favourite hotels on the little island of Mallorca.
Based in Illetas just 5-7 minutes for the centre of Palma, it is a great part of the island if your looking to escape for a few days or even a long holiday.
LOOKS CAN BE DECIEVING
From the outside The Gran Melia de Mar is known as The Red building and has a very modern corporate look to it. Once entering you are greeted with cold towels and welcome drinks into a large white marble entrance with bold floral design. It has that distinct Melia smell which they use in all of their hotels over the world. The facilities and grounds of this hotel make it in our opinion one of the best hotels to stay on the island not to mention the adults only factor 😉
THE ROOM 🔐
Unfortunately on arrival it wasn't the best of days, so we decided to check in to our room, unpack and take a nap as we had the tragic early morning flight 💤
The rooms here are everyTHING. Looking straight onto the sea with gorgeous views of the hotel grounds, you couldn't ask for more.
Another huge factor and winner for us is THE BED!
Each sea view room has a large terrace completed with a sun lounger, perfect for that 7pm sundown beverage 🍸
We enjoyed a complimentary bottle of champagne and macaroons on our terrace and had a nice hot bath, before venturing out to explore the hotel.
AMARO LOBBY BAR & LOUNGE
Last time we visited Gran Melia De Mar it was in different hands, it is partnered with Leading Hotels of The World and the outside decor and style has completely changed. From elegant pink sofa's, marble, woods and blankets for the evening the Amaro Lobby Bar and Lounge is a must try with a variety of food and drink options from cocktails, wines, tapas and delicious pastries.
HERE COMES THE SUN
Finally we have some sun. A nice healthy breakfast in the Amoro Lobby and a 90 minute massage was in store for us at the new Clarin's spa overlooking the sea 🙏🏽HEAVEN
As it was a short break there was only one thing to do.... Take advantage of the sun and the reinvented pool area was the only place to do it. Overlooking the sea are an array of navy and white striped chic sunbeds, surrounding is a large pool and new restaurant Bardot.
What we love about all the amenities at Gran Melia De Mar is that there is a huge variety of options to choose from while keeping that chic sophisticated boutique feel throughout the hotel.
THE BLACK PLUNGE POOL & DAY BEDS
THE PRIVATE BEACH COVE
Overall it was the perfect weekend in the most perfect place, anyone that is looking to escape the daily routine with their partner or friends, we would highly recommend Gran Melia De Mar for that pure luxury experience. The staff are nothing but accommodating and friendly and nothing is too much. The vibe of the hotel automatically leaves you feeling rested and tranquil, ready to get back to reality feeling truly pampered.
