Opening of Boutique Hotel El Llorenç in Palma de Mallorca
Scheduled for Summer 2019 – 33 Rooms
The hotel interiors are the work of Swedish designer, Magnus Ehrland. Tapping into the local history and Moorish influence on the island, Ehrland has incorporated the use of geometric motifs throughout the design, into lattice work and tiling details. This rich aesthetics pay homage to the history of the neighborhood – where one can find the remnants of ancient Arab Baths and the architectural gem – La Almudaina – a former Muslim fortress, turned royal palace of the monarchs of the Kingdom of Mallorca.
Chef Santi Taura
El Llorenç will be home to a unique gastronomic offer spearheaded by renowned Majorcan Chef Santi Taura. DINS Santi Taura will offer a unique dining experience inspired by the island’s traditional cuisine, made with locally so urced seasonal ingredients. Bringing together elements from sea and land to your table, the chef will offer seafood from local waters, prized pork from an island producer and more unique specialties all within a distinct setting.
Restaurant TANNUR takes its name from an Arabic term for a special clay oven, hinting at possible techniques used in the restaurant. There is a secondary meaning that ties into the history of the neighborhood: it is where ancient craftsmen worked large stone vessels serving as part of the leather tannery process.

Chef Santi Taura and his team will oversee all the food and beverage operations at hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar, including the rooftop terrace, bar and room service menus.
