New shine on the top floor

New shine on the top floor

The host let in five tons of carpets from Nepal for his 3000 square meter palace, the Hotel Palacio Can Marques. Made according to the designs of his wife, the American interior designer Aline Matsika.

Luxury, a touch of glamor and 300 years of history make Palma a new hotel experience. After 20 years, Kim Schindelhauer has decided to open his private home Can Marques in Palma's old town to guests from all over the world.

What luck! Because where else in Palma do you have the opportunity to live in such an old and important palace. Palacio Can Marques is in the category 2 in terms of monument protection right behind the cathedral (category 1). Which shows that the walls are historically and architecturally quite valuable. Why, visitors can already see this in the roofed courtyard, from which a reverse imperial staircase leads to the upper floor. Via this stylish staircase with a view of the garden, hotel guests enter the first floor, the piso noble, where the largest suite (after the presidential suite in the attic) is hidden behind the door called Renaissance.

Hospitality means having space

“Space is the greatest luxury of our time,” says host Kim Schindelhauer, because space has become expensive in all the coveted places in the world. The German entrepreneur acquired Can Marques at a time that was still favourable for investors. In addition, the former Mallorcan owner family was so disputed that the heirs sold the property by the room. Because the regatta sailor Kim Schindelhauer had been looking for sustainable use for his property for a long time, and the box for his stopovers in Palma was a bit big in the long run, he was persuaded by his wife, the American interior designer Aline Matsika, two years ago to transform Marques into an exclusive hotel.

Elegant design, luxurious equipment

With elegant design and fresh esprit, Aline Matsika gave the palace a new brilliance. But just don't get too modern so that the charm of lived life remains noticeable and the wooden windows and antique sandstone floors really come into their own. Old books, antiques from Florence, French vintage pieces and art from Art Basel from Florida complement the elaborate furnishings of the 13 suites, which are furnished in very different ways and according to certain colour palettes. For Aline Matsika and Kim Schindelhauer, Can Marques fits perfectly with Palma's new cosmopolitan atmosphere. And if Air Europa actually offers direct flights between Mallorca and New York next year, even more Americans will visit the Balearic capital and their hotel, the couple believes.

A trip on the super yacht WinWin

Even if Can Marques cannot offer its guests a pool. But what does it matter if invited guests can make a sailing trip on the hotel superyacht WinWin. Just a short walk from the hotel, the award-winning racing yacht is anchored in Palma's port. With his WinWin, Kim Schindelhauer won the most important regattas in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Only Can Marques guests have the opportunity to charter the yacht for a day. Who still thinks of lukewarm water in a hotel pool ...
