Sol Katmandu Park, the perfect plan for a summer family holiday

Majorca is one of the best family friendly destinations. Apart from its kilometres of coast and amazing beaches, the biggest island of the Balearic Islands offers great plans for family travelers. Plans for adults and kids such as the visit to world-famous aquariums, theme water parks, zip-lines in the midst of nature or climbing lessons for beginners at one of the most beautiful ravine in Serra de Tramuntana.

However, we don’t always have enough time to plan our perfect family holidays in advance. Therefore, there’s a great alternative allowing us to enjoy both relaxing and entertaining plans called Sol Katmandu Park.

It was created by the hotel chain Sol Hotels (quality seal for hotels offering excellent services designed for specific customers). Sol Katmandu Park is a resort located within a few steps from the paradise beach of Magaluf and it’s the perfect place where to enjoy a unique and charming stay. The hotel best attributes are its location and its price-quality ratio (with many extras designed for children).

Eye for detail

One of the most significant characteristics of this hotel in Magalluf is its care for the smallest details. The hotel fasade, its impressive gate and the small architectonic elements that take us to Nepal, make the visitors feel as in a story tale.

The hotel is guarded by the giant figure of the snowman (the Yeti here is called “Boro The Great) and it has lots of family rooms designed for guests to not worry about anything else but relaxing and having fun with their families.

An upside-down house and much more

Despite locals called it “the upside-down house”, the main attraction of Sol Katmandu Park is called The House of Katmandu.

This impressive temple built upside-down hides many legends about the snowman, also called Boro The Great. The terrifying paths, the vertical corridors or halls putting your mind and body to the test are the most popular attractions of this place recommended for both kids and parents.
Sol Katmandu Park leisure activities offer include the biggest children’s park in Europe, an entertaining water park for adults and kids, 3D cinemas (like Desperados) and a terrifying tour with zombies that seem real (the so-called  Asylum).
