Located on the Spanish isle of Palma de Mallorca is the elegant and refined Gran Melia Victoria. A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts and part of the Preferred Hotel Group, this stylish hotel rests on the edge of a yacht-filled marina, and features traditional décor that is filled with a tapestry of textures and motifs, from sleek marble appointments to bolts of bold, striped fabrics. There are six distinct styles of accommodations from which to choose, including rooms and suites with added luxuries to ensure an unforgettable stay. Spaniards are all about enjoying the moment - a philosophy not lost on the guests of Gran Melia Victoria. The lavish outdoor swimming pool features a fleet of cabanas and a neighboring hot tub, as well as an al fresco fitness center. Massage therapy can be arranged upon request and administered in the privacy of your room or behind the drapes of a poolside cabana.
The hotel features a quartet of restaurants including La Terraza del Victoria, with its canopied patio overlooking the bay and collection of flickering candles to dine by.

Gran Melia Victoria is surrounded by magnificent architecture hailing from the 17th century, which should please both design enthusiasts and preservationists.
