Hideaway Hotel by Louise Davis

June 20, 2021

This is a very interesting and detailed account of Louise Davis’s 22 years working as a translator, PA and PR manager at a luxury hotel in Mallorca. I’ve never stayed in any kind of exclusive hotel, but La Residencia sounds like a very special kind of place and one where many celebrities enjoyed a quiet and relaxing time being graciously pampered by discreet staff.

Far from being an exposé of the rich and shameless, this book is much more about the staff and management and how they dealt with changes of ownership as well as the challenges of a changing market. Louise Davis describes the behind-the-scenes successes as well as all the stresses and strains of working under different managers with different styles. Something that impressed me is that I think she must be very adaptable to adjust so seamlessly to the variety of personalities and yet still retain her own way of working and her integrity.

This was an absorbing, fascinating and very well-written memoir that covers the author’s entire career at the hotel. Highly recommended.

  1. My brother-in-law lived in Majorca and we went there for a meal once. It’s beautiful.

    • It certainly sounds lovely, Cathy. The photos of it are stunning. I’m not surprised Louise enjoyed working there!
