Rahola Vidal Arquitectes, Mayte Matutes bring retro glamor to the OD Port Portals on the island of Mallorca

Design Hotels announced that its newest member on the island of Mallorca, OD Port Portals, opened its doors in the neighborhood of Portals Nous. It is the third property from OD Hotels.

Architecture was by Victor Rahola Aguadé of Rahola Vidal Arquitectes, while interior design was by Mayte Matutes of Estudi Pam 2.

The 77-room OD Port Portals is influenced by Mediterranean design. The interiors take their cue from the Ibizan sister properties, with retro glamor conveyed through design classics, colors and patterns. Warm colors offset cool white, producing variations of light and shadow, both inside and out. Sixty-seven rooms and 10 Junior Suites offer clean lines and hues, accented by wood, stone and leather detailing. The public spaces are a focal point, with designer furniture and textiles made exclusively for the hotel.
