EU: A Mallorca estate has been transformed into a new boutique hotel named Can Bordoy Grand House and Garden.

Nestled on Palma de Mallorca and located in the Old Quarter, the new hotel is built on a site that was formerly home to a kindergarten of the Catholic religious order of Sagradó de Jesús.

Award-winning studio, OHLAB, designed the property which includes 24 suites, a heated outdoor pool, a secluded rooftop, a library and a spa.

Inspired by kintsugi - the Japanese method of repairing broken ceramics with gold, silver, or platinum - original features have been accented and reintroduced into the design.

"The hotel's most beautiful feature is its garden - the largest private one in Palma, which incorporates outdoor dining available to hotel guests, locals, and tourists. It also has a small pool and sun loungers with views of the cathedral for hotel guests," remarked a representative of Can Bordoy Grand House and Garden.

The 750-square metre garden features a Lledoner tree, typical on the island as a sign of welcome at Mallorcan houses, along with 70 different plant species.

The on-site restaurant, Botánic, serves Mediterranean-inspired cuisine of local ingredients that have minimal impact on the environment. Menu items include a cuttlefish and sobrasada sandwich, moray fritters with turmeric mayonnaise, and Iberian pork shoulder blade sheets with mussels and fennel.
