The project was created as a new concept from the very beginning. Its architecture and design was carried out by the OHLAB architectural firm, and they were able to capture the vision of its owner, Don Mikael Hall. He saw the building’s essence, and wanted to capture the light that seeped through its cracks to reflect, through Jaime Oliver and Paloma Hernaiz at OHLAB, an interior design style that has set a precedent.
Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden
History & Story
The Can Bordoy building, which dates back to the 16th century, represents in itself a beautiful metaphor that makes a mark on everyone who visits it: that we must be prepared for life’s endless flow of transformations, and that the greatest beauty is born of wounds, cracks and difficult moments.
The building’s past, its history and its cracks combine with contemporary design, creating surroundings that have been published in the world’s most prestigious magazines and publications, not only for its spectacular spaces but also for its hospitality, recovering the domestic service traditions of old nobility. The past meets the present in our Grand House with a solemn respect for the traditions and good manners of yesterday. Can Bordoy hides an exuberant surprise in its interior, one that makes it completely different from the rest of Mallorca’s hotels: its secret garden.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
A one-of-a-kind escape in Palma. Built around a private garden and sparkling pool, the property is peaceful and serene, the perfect place to unplug and unwind. The contemporary space melds with Old World charm, bringing art, architecture, and modern design to the forefront.
Can Bordoy is in the heart of La Lonja, Palma de Mallorca’s Old Quarter and one of its most emblematic areas, perfect for a relaxed stroll through its narrow streets. The crème de la crème of the district is the La Lonja itself, the spectacular 15th century building after which the neighbourhood is named. Can Bordoy is the closest hotel to the harbour and yacht moorings, and just a stone’s throw from Palma’s major shopping, gastronomic and cultural attractions. These include the world-famous La Seu Cathedral, the animated Paseo del Borne and the Paseo Maritimo.
