Our history

Welcome to the story behind ATRIUM Suites by S'Herència, a house that has witnessed the passing of time and the history of a Mallorcan family over seven generations.

This beautiful 18th-century house, once the home of farmers and winemakers, stood empty for years after the family's children migrated to the big city in search of new opportunities. But the connection to the island and to the grandparents' house was never lost, and eventually the family decided to restore and transform the house into a tourist accommodation with all their love and care.

Every detail of the house has been carefully preserved, from the most curious elements to its beautiful period decoration, to offer guests a unique and authentic experience on the island of Mallorca.

At ATRIUM Suites by S'Herència, we want our guests to immerse themselves in the history and culture of the island while enjoying all the comforts and services we offer in our tourist accommodation.

Join us on this adventure and discover the story behind ATRIUM Suites by S'Herència!

Sustainability

Social and environmental commitment

At ATRIUM Suites by s'Herència we believe that sustainability should be at the core of any hotel’s mission. That’s why we are committed to lowering our footprint and having a positive impact in the local community. Global challenges require local actions, and although we are small, we firmly believe that every effort counts. What’s best - you can help us achieve this goal.

What do we do for sustainability?

WATER

Comfort comes first. But because we are aware that cleaning sheets and towels can use quite a lot of water, we will leave it to you to decide when you need a new clean set of sheets and/or towels.

We also chose not to have bathtubs to avoid excessive water consumption. An average shower generally consumes smaller water volumes. However, please be weary of your water usage. In Spain, a resident uses on average 127 litres of water per day, while the average tourist uses anything between 450 and 800 litres per day.

Water efficient faucets are also installed in every bathroom.

We use only water-efficient washing machines/dishwashers.

Dual-flush toilets are installed in all rooms.

We use sensible gardening techniques and have planted mostly species that are either native or adapted to Mallorca’s climate.

MATERIALS

Preserving, Reusing and Recycling.

We decided to renovate our family home, which had been empty for several years, in a way that respected their heritage.

The architectural and decorative options respect the Mallorcan style. Some of the materials used in the renovation, most of the furniture, and various smaller ornaments have been restored for reuse. A beautiful example: much of the sandstone, called "marès" in Mallorca, has been reused. You can see it on our ceilings, walls, columns, and door frames as you sit in a repurposed century-old rocking chair.

Helping the local economy thrive.

We have worked with local suppliers and contractors for virtually all building materials, supporting the local economy, or in other words, contributing to the livelihood of our neighbors.

WOOD

All the new wood used in the renovation of s'Herència is labeled with FSC. What is FSC? The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization that has established a sustainability standard and certification scheme for forest products. FSC was created in 1993 after NGOs such as WWF chose to work together with some industry leaders after the failure of governments to agree on how to stop deforestation at the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. in 1992. Currently, FSC has certified almost 200 million hectares of forests.

ENERGY

A couple of solar water heaters heat (most of) the water at our facility. We hardly get any clouds or rain here so this was just common sense!

For the fossil energy that (unfortunately) we must use - there is not enough renewable energy in Spain to serve everyone - we have found some ways to minimize consumption.

Our heating system is made up of a network of underfloor heating, although this was a more expensive initial investment. Underfloor heating is made up of tubes under the floor through which hot water circulates. It is more efficient than other systems because the heat is distributed evenly over the entire floor surface, heating the bottom half of the room, enveloping the inhabitants in warmth at a lower overall temperature. Since it doesn't create drafts of hot and cold air like traditional radiators, it's also a great measure against allergies!

Energy efficient LED bulbs were installed in our facilities.

Motion sensors and energy-efficient timers were installed on interior and exterior lighting equipment.

WASTE

Single-use plastics and waste Here too, comfort comes first, but please note that we do NOT provide disposable items. Consider bringing your own soaps and shampoos, organic if possible. We don't want that plastic to end up on the beaches you come to visit. Did you know that the EU has recently passed a law to ban single-use plastics?

Please let us help you recycle your waste. The town of Porreres applies a strict recycling system for organic waste, paper and cardboard, glass and industrial packaging. Let's avoid sending all our waste to incinerators.

How can you contribute to our hotel?

Turn off the lights when you leave your room.

Turn off the air conditioning when you go out for a longer period. Then, after turning it on, the room will be comfortable in 5-10 minutes.

Sheets and towels

Let us know when you want clean sheets and towels.

showers

Thank you for making your showers short and not wasting water.

A few tips while exploring the island:

Food waste

Buy only what you can finish. Otherwise, order a to-go container and finish it later (we have a microwave on the premises).

Odd veggies

Favor locally seasonal food.

Meat

It can be delicious, but the type and amount of meat we eat is driving some of the most dramatic impacts on our planet: the leading cause of global deforestation. Be adventurous, choose the vegetarian option!

Waste

Take care of your waste, especially at the beach. Use the designated containers for recycling.
