Celebrate the New Year and Epiphany at our hotel in Palma
Discover the main traditions for getting the New Year off to a good start
New Year 2015 is just around the corner. As we prepare to say adieu to a year crammed with experiences, this is the perfect time for setting ourselves new goals. At the moment the streets are full of people, and you can still enjoy a fantastic Christmassy atmosphere, with Christmas lights, craft markets and all.
Are you visiting Palma during the first days of the New Year? Good for you! Stay at the Costa Azul Hotel and we’ll share with you some brilliant ideas for getting out and about. But just for now, here’s a little taster for you.
One of the highlights of this time of year is the New Year’s Concert. This time round, this classical music event will be taking place on 2nd January at Palma Auditorium, just three minutes’ walk from our 4-star hotel in Mallorca. The concert will be performed from 9.00 p.m. onwards by the Strauss Festival Orchestra, while its dance troupe waltz to the music, as at the original concert in Vienna.
This concert gets more popular every year, so we recommend that you snap up your tickets asap. If you’re staying with us, our reception staff will be delighted to help you buy them.
The end of the Christmas holiday period is marked by a very special event for children, the Three Wise Men’s Day Parade. Just as they do every year, these special visitors will be arriving in Palma on 5th January by boat and will moor in the Moll Vell, very close to our hotel with sea views.
From 5.30 p.m. onwards all boys and girls need to be lined up to watch the Kings parade through the city, and once the parade’s over, they’ll be able to visit the Kings and submit their requests for presents in the Council Chamber at the City Hall. Did you know that over 6,000 kg of sweets were shared out last year? Have your pockets at the ready!
The Three Wise Men’s Day Parade in Palma de Mallorca is one of the country’s oldest – incredibly, it goes back over 200 years!
At our boutique hotel in Palma we’re all set for the greatest Christmas ever. All that remains is to give you our heartfelt wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2015.
