The city center of Palma de Mallorca, the Spanish getaway founded by the Romans, is known for its eclectic architecture and charming maze of streets. The fashionable 16 rooms and suites of the centrally located Hotel Cort come courtesy of Barcelona-based Lázaro Rosa-Violán, who conjures the nearby beach by embracing tones of aquamarine, terra-cotta, and gray, accentuated by evocative props like maps and surfboards. Luckily this sense of playfulness does not come at the expense of luxury. There are heated floors and Egyptian-cotton linens to fill that quota. Some rooms are adorned with private terraces that feature sunbeds and a dining table; others boast a fireplace or private Jacuzzi. Make sure to set one evening aside for a meal at the Restaurant. A design showcase of its own, it has leather furniture, a floor composed of geometric mosaics, and lamps dangling from mirrored ceilings of molded wood. Afterwards, kick back with a cava nightcap on the popular terrace.
