The modernist love nest of our hotel in Sóller
Our hotel is located in the old town Sóller, where the town’s history is still present and forms part of a neurological centre of interest of the Serra de Tramuntana. It is a building dating back to the beginning of the 20th century located only 10 metres from the Plaza Constitución, one of the birth places of modern architecture in Mallorca. Even though the hotel has its own purpose today, it was not originally designed for what it is used as today.
Lluna Aqua Hotel was built on the history and the emotion of its people. The house which serves as a foundation for the services which we offer has been closed for almost 40 years. The building was completely renovated at the start of the 20th century by an “hereu” (heir) of Sóller after getting marrying the love of his life, a French woman. He wanted to build his own love nest and so he hired the best artisans of that era, focusing the style on modernism and Art Nouveau. Following the death of the heir the property was closed. The love nest closed its doors in 1978 and in 2019 Unusual Hotels has reopened this jewel, it has been reformed and renovated to bring back all of the magic and love that it was built with. All for you to enjoy.
