Rooms 16 /Architecture Vicente Alcover Ripoll, Luis Alcover Ripoll /Interior Design Contemporain /The Original Lázaro Rosa-Violán
Like an island within an island, Hotel Cort sits at the epicenter of the historic and increasingly cosmopolitan city of Palma de Mallorca. Guests will find quiet inspiration in the 16 rooms and suites designed by self-styled ‘urban archeologist’ Lázaro Rosa-Violán, whose framed maps and cool splashes of ultramarine color hint at the hotel’s proximity to the sea (the nearest beach is just a fifteen-minute walk away). It’s equally easy for guests to mingle with locals in the hotel’s Mallorquin restaurant, which spills onto the sundrenched cobbles of Plaça Cort. This central plaza is home to Palma’s Baroque-era town hall and a centuries-old olive tree that acts as a natural meeting place for locals, making it the ideal base for weekending visitors who want to uncover the real Mallorca, far from the usual ‘fun in the sun’ beach resorts.

Rooms & Suites
Located in the heart of Palma de Mallorca, Hotel Cort’s rooms and suites are designed to create a feeling of wellbeing and warmth. In order to achieve this, a soothing palette of cool white, blue, and ultramarine colors representing the Mediterranean Sea mix with warm materials such as wood, leather, linen and "llenguas" (traditional Mallorcan fabrics). Exotic elements like geometric Moorish mosaics and ottomans are combined with naval references such as framed maps and curious maritime books to create a stylish and eclectic ambience. The luxurious bathrooms include Molton Brown amenities and heated flooring during winter. Some rooms offer private sandstone balconies and cozy fireplaces. The jewel of the hotel is the magnificent Island Suite, which stretches over two floors and includes a private terrace with its own sun lounges.
Spanish style hunter Lázaro Rosa-Violán, renowned for his work at restaurants, bars and shops around the world, knows how to get results. “The interior designer is an actor,” he says. “He must dress up and change roles, understand new identities and integrate them with his own.” At Hotel Cort this saw him going beyond the usual remit of an interior designer, taking charge of how the lighting, ambiance, sleeping areas, and food worked together to make a complete experience.
The island of Mallorca is famous for its beaches and resorts, club scene, and the beautiful Balearic capital of Palma de Mallorca. The Historic Center (Old Town) of the city is home to a trove of delights, the highlight being the 13th-century Santa María Cathedral—a sea-side Gothic architectural feat commonly called La Seu.
