A Jewel Box in Palma
You'll find glorious Details at Gloria de Sant Jaume in the heart of Palma, Mallorca. Privately owned, the overriding philosophy of the service, and the feeling inside the hotel, exhibits that of an authentic Mallorquín manor house. Located on the Carrer Sant Jaume, a narrow street between Avenida Jaime III and the romantic Rambla, the location is ideal for exploring the city.
The surrounding streets in the neighborhood are all named after Saints - with several nearby churches and convents, thus the name Glòria! The origin of the hotel dates back to the 16th century and some medieval vestiges of that time have been preserved. In 1870 a superb renovation was completed that modernized the building and gave it its unique character of fin de siècle style to its noble floor with colorful tiling from the famous Catalan factory Escofet, tall windows, carved woodwork and large stone arches of Santanyi. Today, the Cabau family have breathed new life into the building and have turned it into an exceptional 5-Star luxury boutique hotel.
