The Paradisus Palma Real Golf & Spa Resort: A Vacation for All Five Senses


Vacation styles change and tourists seek new ways to fully enjoy their holidays.  The Paradisus Palma Real Golf & Spa Resort offers its guests a unique experience for all five senses.

In order to experience the hotel through sight, we experiment with lighting, highlighting the lights and shadows of the facility.  Because of this lighting technique, the hotel looks very different during the day than at night.

And, the sense of taste is a true delight, thanks to the hotel’s incredible food options.

Also, by the sense of smell, where each particular area has a particular scent associated with it; through the ear, with beautiful surrounding music and, finally, through the sense of touch, because the décor invites the visitor to touch the fabrics, textures and other materials used in the overall decoration of the facility.

The resort’s goal is “to provide guests with a unique experience where they can enjoy their holiday by using their five senses,” said Conrad Bergwerf, the hotel’s general manager, who also stated that this is “the unique feature that identifies the Paradisus Melia Hotels International brand.”


The Paradisus Palma Real, Bergwerf explains, focuses on varied menus prepared to please all palates.  In order to meet this goal, the hotel features eleven a la carte restaurants and two poolside buffet dining areas.  All provide guests with world-class culinary experiences.

The hotel is also home to the famous “Passion” Restaurant, created by Spanish Chef Martin Berasategui, the famous 7-star Michelin award recipient.

There is also the Palazzo Restaurant (Italian, exclusive for Royal Service guests); the Bana (Sushi and Teppanyaki); the Olio Vento (Mediterranean); Fuego (Latin cuisine); Blue Agave (Mexican); Aqua (Mediterranean); Mizu (Teppanyaki); Hydro Grill (light snacks), and two buffet restaurants: the Gabi Club and Naos.

Two new options have been recently added to this incredible list of top-quality restaurants:  “The Winery” and “RARE”.  RARE is the hotel’s steakhouse, while The Winery offers guests more than 180 highly rated wines. It is an intimate corner with seating for only 18 guests inside, and four in the exterior area.  The Winery also offers Spanish tapas, with a menu prepared by Martin Berasategui.

The Reserve Beach, a new concept included at The Reserve At Paradisus Palma Real Resort, is literally a hotel within the Paradisus Palma Real Resort.
