Our favourite rooms

The spacious Junior Suites look out over Old Town Palma (ask for the suite at the end of the corridor for the widest-angle views) and soakers will love the freestanding bath in each bedroom. If you’d like your own roof terrace, spring for the Luxury Suite: it has the only private terrace in the place, complete with Turkish bath and a lounge-worthy daybed.


You’ll find an unheated swimming pool surrounded by sun loungers up on the rooftop terrace; soak up the sunshine and views of the cathedral and Castell de Bellver as you sip cocktails. In the indoor wellness area, the heated adults-only pool with water beds is perfect for post-sauna session relaxation.

Packing tips

Bring your most photogenic sun hat and elegant swimwear for rooftop poolside lounging.


The reception area, bar and restaurant are fully wheelchair accessible, as is one guest room.


Little Smiths are welcome, but not catered to; the hotel is best suited to over-13s.

Food and Drink

Photos Convent de la Missio – Mallorca – Spain

Top Table

The restaurant is fairly spread out, with three separate dining spaces. If you like a little sunshine with your meal, snag a table in the courtyard by the waterfall.

Dress Code

Keep it casual and breezy at breakfast and lunch in stylish cover-ups, sundresses and shorts. Turn up to dinner in something with a dash of holiday glamour; Mr Smith should opt for trousers over shorts.

Hotel restaurant

Helmed by Marc Fosh and Toni Martorell, Michelin-starred Simply Fosh is all about internationally-inspired and elaborate Mediterranean dishes. The menu changes weekly, so try to sample as many mouth-watering morsels as  is humanly possible before they’re gone.

Hotel bar

Decorated by local artists, aptly named Art Bar shakes up signature cocktails dreamed up by barman Andreu Genestar along with all the classics. The neutral-toned and high-ceilinged space has splashes of colour: there’s a multi-coloured glass piece above the bar, Katrin Kirk jellyfish sculptures and a driftwood wall installation. Claim one of the cushy sofas and order a gin-based Capritx de Menorca to wind down after a sun-filled day.

Last orders

Enjoy leisurely breakfasts from 8am to 11am, lounging lunches from 1pm to 3.15pm and candle-lit dinners from 7pm to 10pm. The bar pours all manner of beverages from noon to midnight.

Room service

Order from Simply Fosh straight to your room, or root through the minibar for drinks, chocolates and salty snacks.

Worth getting out of bed for

Convent de la Missió’s Old Town setting means that it’s only a short stroll to the flower-stall-filled avenue of Las Ramblas, which leads to Plaza Mayor and all of its restaurants and cafés. Santa Eulalia church and the town hall square are close by, as are popular shopping streets including Calle San Miguel, Jaime II, Colon and Calle Sindicato.

Local restaurants

For pinxtos and tapas, try trendy Buscando el Norte (77 Calle San Miguel) or Gaudeix (2 Calle Can Sales); sit outside at the latter. Mosaic-floored Ombu (7 Paseo de Born) serves their tapas on the modern side, with a touch of quirky presentation. Claxon (9 Calle 31 de Diciembre) has a diminutive menu that rotates weekly. Past items have included hummus starters, gnochhi first plates and Asian-inspired mains; everything is exceptionally well done. At Duke Restaurant (36 Calle Soler) you’ll find fresh and healthy fare with Asian, Mediterranean and South American influences; don’t skip the ceviche.


Local cafés

At bohemian Cafe Antiquari (5 Carrer Arabi), you’ll find quirky mismatched tables and chairs, scattered objects d'art, live music and a classic tapas menu. Both biblio- and oenophiles can get their fix at book-lined La Biblioteca de Babel (3 Carrer Arabí). 

Local bars

At on-trend Ginbo (14A Passeig de Mallorca) cocktail and gin bar, apron-clad barmen specialise in shaking up juniper-laced beverages. For panoramic Palma views, classic cocktails, and beats to snap your fingers to, head to Blue Jazz Club Saratoga (6 Paseo Mallorca).

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in Mallorca and unpacked their newest object d’modern art, a full account of their boutique break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Convent de la Missió in Old Town Palma…

Had this been what Hamlet had in mind when proclaiming ‘Get thee to a nunnery’, Ophelia would have happily obliged and Shakespeare’s tragedy would have ended on a significantly sunnier note. Boutique hotel Convent de la Missió in Palma nods to its past in name and stone walls, but is decidedly forward-thinking in all else.

All rooms have a clean aesthetic, punctuated by subtle pops of modern art, including floating mesh sculptures, driftwood wall installations and oversized Ishihara tests. The hotel’s perfectly placed in Old Town, but the rooftop terrace, pool and views will likely tempt you to spend most of your holiday lounging in the sunshine. Make sure to keep the cocktails from Art Bar flowing…
