Petit Maó is a collection of friends held together for the same affinity: to project a new concept of hospitality. An empathy and sympathy towards our guest. We do not only invite him to feel like-at-home but also to enjoy an inspiring and fresh place, source of beauty in its multi-dimension. A beauty learnt from our guests and suggested back to them by means of a vintage and eclectic decoration making singular the « false order of things». A beauty which stems from the simplicity where any ordinary decision counts and from a fluidity which all regenerates. We are not here to reinvent the wheel but to re-address its standards and conventions. We have clarity on what we want to be as well as on what we do not want to be. A hospitality towards our guest which will be then reverted back to us and to the Minorcan community in a virtuous iteration. A guest, traveler or tourist, sensitive to new experiences and driven by the curiosity and the research of what’s genuinely authentic.
Petit Maó hotel is right in the center of the historical neighborhood of Maó, in a 18th century manor house constructed during the illustrated Maó under British sovereignity. The liberal Maó with the very first printing machines and Masonic lodges. The dynamic Maó of the traders, craftsmen, ship-owners, land-owners and incipient bourgeois. The enlightened Maó with a genuine local identity as well as strong global influences. The erudite Maó of the Arts with its Opera house and theatre plays……plenty of History and many histories to explain you.
Petit Maó is fairly close to plenty of beaches. Wild beaches on the North: es Grau, cala Tortuga, Presili o Mesquida. Turquoise calas on the South-East: Son Bou, Atalis, es caló des Rafalet o ses Olles. Not far neither from the rest of the beaches of Minorca where every spot is relatively only a stone throwaway: cala Mitjana, Binigaus, el Pilar o Cavalleria. And lots of walkways within the island and on the old coastal foot-path « Camí de Cavalls ». And we are only 15min far from the airport.
