Opened in 2018, this ode to Art Deco claims the title of the newest art hotel on the island of Ibiza. The latest offering from the Concept And Design Hotel Group, this playfully glitzy adults-only hotel doesn’t hold back with its riot of art-inspired interiors that drew talent from numerous young artists. Swashes of Miami Beach style pastel pink even spread as far the hotel swimming pools, while seventies-style suites feature one-off artistic creations and retro amenities. Located in buzzing San Antonio Bay, the hotel holds regular music events and exhibitions, and various artists hold weekend ‘micro-residencies’ sharing their creative process with guests.

No prizes for guessing which artist this Palma de Mallorca hotel is dedicated to. The grandson of this famous Catalan surrealist painter loaned 28 lithographs of the master’s work to be displayed throughout the hotel. The hotel’s walls also feature mural reproductions of his work, which continue into the guest rooms. It’s the first hotel dedicated to Joan Miró, opening in association with the nearby Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation museum nearby, where you can see the artist’s studio that has remained untouched since his death.

As its name suggests, this is indeed one of Ibiza’s grander luxury-level hotels, albeit one with plenty of understated contemporary panache. It also houses one of the island’s largest art collections, comprising almost 400 works created specifically for the complex. 28 artists drew inspiration from the five elements of fire, water, wind, air and light, one for each floor of the hotel, plus each of the 157 suites features an original artwork. Swish and airy interiors also have the feel of an art gallery, with every corner of the property finished with stylish, eye-pleasing design.

Set at the start of Palma’s leafy La Rambla, this boutique property was previously an antique shop, owned by a local dealer who has brought his eye for art and antiques into the hotel. Its five floors are brimming with all types of artworks, including two original pieces by Miró, as well as numerous museum-worthy antiques. Terracotta floors and exposed beams also add a charming traditional feel to the place, while fresh flowers and warm service give it a homey vibe.

Opened in 2017, this is one of the newer art hotels in Mallorca, situated in the town of Campos in the less-trod south centre of the island. The property is a beautifully renovated upscale affair, that fuses traditional townhouse architecture with contemporary flourishes. But its the collection of artwork that will impress the artistically inclined, with works by mostly Spanish artists such as Luca Monzani and Fernando Suárez. Fine dining and a deluxe spa add to the distinctly upmarket vibe; the hotel is adults-only and open year-round.
