Hotel Illa d’Or unveils fresh new look on 85th anniversary
If Agatha Christie revisited the charming hotel where she stayed in Puerto Pollensa in the 3os and wrote about in her short story “Problem at Pollensa Bay”, she would still recognise Hotel Illa d’Or and probably approve of the changes.
The hotel was one of the first to be built in this part of Mallorca in 1929 and has hosted guests such as Catalan artist Joan Miró, who honeymooned there in 1929.
The hotel celebrates its 85th anniversary this year and reopened today after a major fashion makeover. All 120 rooms and suites have been renovated and refurbished in a bright, contemporary style with neutral and marine tones to reflect its seafront location.
The luxury Spanish hotel enjoys a prestigious waterfront location at the quiet end of the famous Pinewalk promenade of beautiful Puerto Pollensa Bay. Offering spectacular views across the bay and the Tramuntana mountains beyond, the hotel is noted for its waterfront dining in season and a private jetty for watersports, diving trips and private boat excursions for guests.
Epicureans will be kept busy at the hotel’s La Terrassa Restaurant, which is headed by its creative Argentinian chef. There’s also a luxury spa and health centre, indoor and outdoor pools, bikes and tennis court. The hotel can arrange a number of activities from exploring the fascinating Roman origins of nearby Pollensa to walking, hiking, mountain biking and other high-adrenalin mountain adventures. This region of Mallorca is also noted for its sailing, dive sites and birdwatching areas along the Formentor peninsula.
If you prefer to just relax and unwind, the hotel offers a ‘relax and let yourself be seduced’ package – which can be booked as a three or seven night option. Afternoon tea, a welcome gift, car hire, massage, spa access and much are are offered – book us in!
