Majorca Hen Party Ideas

Attention!!! All hens looking for a chic, warm and glam party spot, Majorca is the ultimate place to be. Notorious for the party hotspots such as Magaluf, Majorca does in fact offer a number of hidden gems along the coast and inland.

The main airport on the island is Palma de Mallorca Airport with Ryanair, British Airways and Jet 2 all offering regular flights direct from the UK throughout the summer season. Out of season flights are a little more limited. 

Palma de Mallorca Airport is less than 20 minutes’ drive from Puerto Portals, Palma Nova and only 15 minutes from a cute little suburb called Bendinat. The upmarket village of Bendinat offers luxury cafes, 5* hotels and is only a short walk from the beach.

This area of Majorca can be pricey but can also be done on a budget. If your girlfriends are looking for a trip that offers a stylish location, lounging by the pool, taking a boat trip, with a combination of relaxed and glam evening fun then Majorca is the trip for you. Read on for our recommended Majorca hen party ideas.

 

Stylish Vibes

 

Head to Puerto Portals where you will find a collection of luxury yachts moored. Enjoy your morning coffee from a selection of stylish cafes & bars and watch the people go by. Fancy a spot of designer shopping? Take your pick from a number of retail stores selling designer ladies and menswear, whilst also spotting the celebrity or 2. Famed for his trips to Puerto Portals, you will usually find award winning hairdresser Nicky Clarke and his wife enjoying the views from the port.

 

 

Where to Stay

 

Nestled between Palma and Palma Nova, Bendinat is an affluent little village with plenty public transport. In fact, there is a bus to Palma Nova every 10 minutes, meaning you have no excuse for not getting to the beach. Bendinat is a quiet village, meaning you have to make the 5-10 minute trip into the village or neighbouring Palm Nova. If you prefer to stay along the Palma Nova “strip” there are a number of 4 and 5* hotels offering all inclusive, full and half board options. Don’t panic. You are a safe enough distance away from the antics on the Magaluf strip.

 

Where to Eat

 

For an upmarket, fancy meal head back to Puerto Portals where you will find a selection of fabulous restaurants from Chinese, Indian, Italian and more. Taxis are very regular, and you can enjoy the evening with a spectacular view of the ocean. Why not wander around some of the super yachts. They look amazing in the evening lit up. If you prefer a night off and prefer something casual there are plenty of restaurants along Palma Nova. Modigliani is a wonderful Italian eatery with outside dining, or if you prefer Thai, My Thai is a personal favourite. First class food, service and the outside dining area is pretty good too. Don’t worry about those next morning hangovers, McDonalds & KFC are located only a stone throw away. 

 

 

Boat Party

 

Why not join the jet set on your private boat… which is very popular with a lot of hens. There are a lot of options for coastline cruises leaving from Puerto Portals, visiting Port Avais, Magaluf and Santa Ponca. Hot Air Balloon trips and swimming with the dolphins are also a good shout too. 

 

Day Activities

 

Take a boat trip from Palma Nova, spend the day visiting the stylish and historic city of Palma, or visit the northern & eastern regions of Pollensa, Soller and Alcudia. Around 40 minutes to 1 hour to the very north of the island, there are a number of activities to be considered. Pollensa is famous for cycling with a number of lovely local cafes and bars. Prefer a spot of shopping, then head to the city of Palma where you will find Zara, Mango & some cute little boutiques.

Hen Parties In Arabian Paradise

With the plethora of luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture, hotel rooms fit for a queen and a lively nightlife scene, Dubai has over the years become every hen party planner’s paradise. Since planning our first event in Dubai back in 2008, the city has seen a number of changes, and continues to do so even in 2020. The ever impressive Burj Khalifa, standing at 830m tall dominates the skyscraper filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music, which is particularly beautiful in the evening, enjoyed whilst dining in the many terrace restaurants overlooking the fountains. The middle east is very accessible from the UK with daily direct flights courtesy of Emirates. British Airways, Qatar Airways and KLM also offer return flights to Dubai; however, these are not direct and will require a stop over at either London Heathrow, Doha or Amsterdam. If you can afford the extra to fly Emirates, we would recommend doing so. Not only for the ease of travel, but the flight experience is the start of your hen party. Fly in luxury. Economy class is excellent and with one of the highest baggage allowances too. Make sure you pack those extra dresses. Once on board enjoy a hot cloth to clean your hands, a nibble or 2 with a glass of wine and choose your meal from a menu card. Unlimited music and movies on demand, meaning your 7 hour flight will fly in. Quite literally. Once you land in the plush Arabian playground, is when the fun really begins.

Read on for a few of our hen party ideas and tips whilst in Arabian paradise…

 

 

Buy Your Alcohol At The Airport

 

You’ve landed and your week long hen party awaits. One tip you cannot forget is to buy any alcohol you will need for the duration of your stay at Duty Free as you head out of the airport through arrivals. In Dubai you cannot buy alcohol of any kind in supermarkets, retail stores and off-licences don’t exist in the Emirates. You can only purchase alcohol within your hotel, other hotels and restaurants. For any in-room drinks you are best to purchase as many bottles of wine, gin or vodka as you think you might need prior to arriving at your hotel. The in-room mini bars are of course available but will set you back a fair few pounds each day. You can also pack your alcohol in your suitcase prior to flying. Emirates do allow 2 bottles of wine and 1 bottle of spirit per person. If you’re not flying Emirates, I would double check with your airline for their rules around this.

 

Where To Stay

 

Dubai is split into a number of districts. Old Town, Sheikh Zayed Road, Jumeirah, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach Residence & The Palm Jumeirah. It really depends on the activities you are looking to do whilst on your trip to choose where to stay. The Old Town is next to the airport and doesn’t offer too much in the way of nightlife. I wouldn’t recommend the Old Town if you’re looking for a lively stay. Sheikh Zayed Road on the other hand is awesome. Think of a 6 lane motorway with hotels, restaurants and bars either side. Fairmont, Hilton Conrad, Jumeirah Towers & Rotana are a few of the luxury hotels on offer along Sheikh Zayed Road. In particular Hilton Conrad is super amazing with gardens and swimming pool to die for. A night in the Conrad will set you back £300 and is worth every penny. I would also recommend the PornStar Martini’s. Delicious. The metro is easily accessible and is around £2 return to places such as Dubai Mall, Dubai Marina and Old Town. Dubai Mall is around 7 minutes from Sheikh Zayed Road. Dubai International Airport is around 15 minutes also. Dubai Marina is now more accessible than in recent years, however is a little further from the mall. Dubai Marina, Jumeirah and The Palm are towards the other side of Dubai with limited access to anything out with their complexes. If you choose to stay on Sheikh Zayed Road, The Hilton Conrad is my recommendation. If you choose Dubai Marina, I recommend Five Palm Jumeirah. An absolutely stunning hotel with private beach, pool and a number of bars and restaurants on site.

 

 

Shopping, Burj Khalifa & Dubai Fountains

 

Your hen party will fall in love with Dubai Mall. You can literally spend a whole day and night in the mall and still not see everything the mall has to offer. Browse Fashion Avenue and shop till you drop with over 100 stores across 4 levels. Worth a visit is Dubai Aquarium and Dubai Ice Rink plus you can catch the latest films on offer at one of the many cinemas. With so many new and exciting eateries you will forget all aspect of time whilst in the mall.

Outside of the mall you can take in the Dubai Fountains whilst enjoying your evening meal. View the Burj Khalifa and even book a tour to the top if your not afraid of heights. Take the diamond encrusted lift all the way to floor 148 and see for yourself the outstanding views of the city. Best to book on a clear day to make sure you can see as much as possible. A trip to the top will cost around £100 per person, however we would recommend adding this to your budget when planning. You will not want to miss out.

 

 

 

Where To Eat

 

There are many restaurants across the city whether you are eating at the Dubai Mall, within your hotel or along Sheikh Zayed Road. Lebanese and local Arabian cuisine is popular as well as Italian and Thai. The Grosvenor House Hotel located by Dubai Marina as one of the best Chinese restaurants and would be a must. A little pricey but perhaps your last evening to celebrate a fun filled hen party trip? Many of the celebrities stay in the Grosvenor and would be a good opportunity for a sneaky celeb selfie to round off your hen party.

Friday Brunch is a classic event and must be done if your trip is over a Friday. Basically, you pay a fee per person and eat as much as you can all day from the buffet on offer. This is a buffet like no other, with seafood, salad, pasta, breads, cheeses, meats and much more. You will not need to eat for 24 hours after!

 

Spa, Nightlife & Bars

 

Most, if not all of the hotels are equipped with a fabulous 5* spa and swimming pool. Why not join the elite and book a spa day with your girls and enjoy lunch by the pool thereafter? A hen party is not complete without a relaxing spa day complete with back massage and luxury facial. Spend the rest of the afternoon lounging by the pool before retreating back to your room to pull out the little black dress and hit the town. Most of the hotels all have nightclubs located in the basement floors with wine bars and cocktails bars on the 2 and 3rd floors. Most clubs all close at 3am and be careful not to wander outside of the hotel slightly intoxicated, as you may be picked up by the police. Keep within your hotel and don’t overdo the alcohol consumption & you will be just fine.
