Best of Mallorca | 2018 Text: Renate Pentzien
The Swedish couple Johanna and Mikael Landström are well known for their quality locations on Mallorca by now. But with the Palma Sport & Tennis Club they have proven that not only in the hotel business it is mainly quality and passion that count.
Their hotels Portixol in Palma and the Esplendido in Pt. de Soller are both attractive places to spend a vacation, have a tasty meal or a drink with good company. Now, Palma has a real attraction: THE club. It used to be the hot spot for the fashionable ”white sport“ and Mallorca’s aristocracy as well as the top tennis players worldwide – for it was exactly here where tennis was introduced to the island for the very first time. Johanna Landström: “The majority of our 1200 members are Mallorcans. We have many people come in and thank us for bringing their club back to life, which makes us happy. This is a feel good project for us – we are working with health, the most important thing we have, and in such an emblematic location of Palma’s history, that is just wonderful.“
Their intention is to create a private club, a space that feels like you can treat yourself with all the good things for body and soul. A social club but at the same time open for everyone. The ambiance is a casual and classy mix of the authentic style of the sixties and a modern design that makes its visitors feel relaxed and at ease the very moment they come in. The club offers five clay courts – including a center court, a 25 meter swimming pool with five lap lanes and over a hundred sports classes a week. Anything from pilates to body pump, yoga, cycling or gym – the members have lots of choices. The restaurant and bar area invite to hold meetings, and whomever can’t get enough of the flair of the tennis club can rent one of their exclusive guest houses on the compound. It can’t get any better …
