Privately owned by a Mallorcan family, the boutique hotel is in the Baluard in the Calatrava neighbourhood at the centre of Palma, overlooking the city and sea. An authentic Mallorca menu is set to be served in the Bala Roja restaurant under award-winning Chef Andreu Genestra, and the Cocô spa and rooftop terrace already have the approval of locals.

Rebel rise 

Cork Airport recorded a 5 per cent increase in passenger numbers this January compared to last year. The country’s second busiest airport after Dublin served 2.3 million passengers, compared to 2.2 million in 2016. The launch of Cork’s first year-round direct transatlantic service with Norwegian Airlines to Boston Providence is one of the reason’s passenger numbers are on the rise, as well as its new airline partners Swiss, Iberia Express and Volotea. corkairport.com
