For a long time, Mallorca has been the scene of countless events. The reason behind this is the ideal whether the island has all year round, as well as the great variety of versatile venues and trained professionals. Therefore, thanks to these qualities, Mallorca has been able to find itself among the most desired corners of the world to carry out private events of any size and request.
However, given the changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, we foresee that in the future these events will be resumed bearing in mind other needs. These changes make us think of places where events can be welcoming as well as entertaining, places where any type of meeting or gathering can be held offering their participants something unique that’s worth travelling for. Hence, we want to talk about some examples of more original places to hold private events.
In which venue is it possible to carry out a more original private event in Mallorca?
- Boutique hotels, for more intimate and welcoming events.
- Castles, to live an authentic fairy-tale experience.
- Manor houses or possessions, which offer their architectural splendour.
- Gardens, the best option to find yourself in harmony with the environment.
- Rooftops in Palma, with spectacular views of the old town.
- Golf courses, classic yet versatile places where to hold your event.
- Yachts or wooden boats, for those in love with the sea and its possibilities.
- Agrotourism complex, one of the most ecological and natural options.
- Wine estates, for those who appreciate the grape drink.
- Olivar and its olive trees, for lovers of Mediterranean gastronomy.
1. Boutique hotels, for more intimate and welcoming events.
Although many hotels and resorts throughout Mallorca have worked to host and promote the MICE sector and weddings, their greatest attribute in terms of these events is their location and space. Therefore, boutique hotels offer more cosy yet luxurious settings for holding more welcoming private events, without belittling larger hotels.
By definition, a boutique hotel has its own personality and identity, integrated into the location, being able to offer a much more personalized service in whose standards quality and excellence are usually a fundamental part.
Many of these hotels are in privileged areas of Mallorca, both in the capital and in the island’s many villages, blending in with the surroundings and, therefore, they are the perfect venue to hold an event with traditional hints, but unconventional enough to promote sophisticated and enjoyable activities among the participants.
2. Castles, to live an authentic fairy-tale experience.
Many people want to have a fairy-tale type of venue such as a castle for their special wedding. And truth-speaking, there’s no more charming and magical place where to hold a wedding but a castle, which can also be a very airy setting for any other type of event where history and luxury are the focus point.
Examples of this are Castell Son Claret, a luxurious hotel located in a castle dating from the 15th century or Castell Son Vida, a hotel located in one of the most exclusive areas of Palma with views of the bay and whose building is a renovated castle from the 13th century, which has the structure of a typical Mallorcan country house, and this leads us to our next type of location:
3. Manor houses or possessions, which offer their architectural splendour.
Many Mallorcan fincas, stately homes and possessions offer their space to private event organizers whose clients are looking for intimate venues, but with great beauty and architectural splendour that speak for themselves. These buildings not only house a great history but are also the ideal venue for events of great cultural interest.
At the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana we find the perfect example for this section: La Raixa. La Raixa is a magnificent possession of Arab origin where it’s possible to hold conferences, conventions and private events. Located in the municipality of Bunyola, this finca has a spectacular structure and one of the most important gardens on the island which, again, leads us to our next original venue.
4. Gardens, the best option to find yourself in harmony with the environment.
Many gardens in Mallorca can be rented to host various private outdoor events between spring and autumn. The climate in the warmer months can be perfect for meetings, conventions and, of course, weddings both during the day and at night.
The gardens are an ideal setting to reconnect with natural surroundings while perfectly designed to host events that meet all kinds of needs. In addition, open spaces are today a safer place where you can carry out all kinds of entertaining activities depending on the event that is taking place.
5. Rooftops in Palma, with spectacular views of the old town.
Also, rooftops as a venue offer ideal views outdoors, especially if we talk about Palma, the capital of the island, and its old town full of life and spectacular monuments such as the Cathedral that we know as La Seu, La Lonja and its streets or the Royal Palace of Almudaina…
The city, more specifically seen from the heights, offers a chic and sophisticated atmosphere to any type of event that will end up enchanting the most cosmopolitan guests and that will also offer them many possibilities to talk about their experiences, livening up the evening.
6. Golf courses, classic yet versatile places where to hold your event.
In addition to practising this sport, golf courses are a great space to hold multiple private events, presentations and, also, thanks to the size of their areas, it’s possible to safely host intimate concerts. Golf courses are a classic and versatile resource that can provide great charm and fantastic views away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but close enough so you have the best of both worlds.
7. Yachts or wooden boats, for those in love with the sea and its possibilities.
Even further away from the city, for those who enjoy sailing and the Mediterranean Sea, Mallorca offers the possibility of renting spectacular yachts and wooden boats where a private event can behold but also, it’s possible to enjoy a memorable day or a few days trips sailing our beautiful sea.
On a boat trip, you could perfectly combine business, culture and relaxation. In addition, these boats have a crew prepared to carry out any type of reception and it is an extraordinary way to change the atmosphere.
8. Agrotourism complex, one of the most ecological and natural options.
Especially for the cosmopolitan people who want a change of scene, agrotourism complexes are a great option that, additionally, can introduce participants to ecology and nature, taking advantage of the resources of the area and learning new values.
As part of rural tourism in Mallorca, agrotourism offer you a way to enjoy the environment, as well as remarkable landscapes, and delicious gastronomy. With this touristic option, after a private event is hold it will be possible to learn the customs of the place and directly know the agricultural or livestock tasks of the area as a recreational activity.
9. Wine estates, for those who appreciate the grape drink.
Continuing with this dynamic, and especially for those who love good wine, a vineyard is an excellent place to hold a private event and to liven up any evening with tastings and routes with which to learn about the viticulture of Mallorca and its different wines with Designation of Origin a seal of their high quality.
10. Olivar and its olive trees, for lovers of Mediterranean gastronomy.
And finally, for those in love with Mediterranean gastronomy and the excellent cuisine of Mallorca, there is no better option than an olive farm where extra virgin olive oil is produced, and that is the key product for the success of Mediterranean dishes.
In our olive grove, we can host any type of event and you can be in direct contact with the traditions and the rural way of life of Es Pla our island. Here we’ll also show you how the production of liquid gold consists of and what the typical production process of our family is like to achieve a superior quality product. In addition, there will be a tasting to appreciate the nuances of our extra virgin olive oil and, of course, superb courses prepared by a local chef.
