Virgin Limited Edition’s luxury hotels and retreats will begin to reopen from early July following their temporary closure as a result of COVID-19.
Son Bunyola Estate in the Tramontana mountains of Mallorca will be the first property to open across the collection, effective 4 July 2020. As Spain eases out of quarantine, Son Bunyola will be the first positive movement for the portfolio as it begins to welcome guests back with a stringent set of new measures going above and beyond local government guidelines to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of future guests.
Since announcing the reopening date a week ago the Estate has been booked solid through until late August.
“We have always remained optimistic that we may be able to open some of our properties at the beginning of July and we are thrilled to be able to announce that Son Bunyola will be the first of our properties to open its doors once again,” said Jon Brown, Managing Director of Virgin Limited Edition.
“Guests can expect to see some slight changes across all of our properties as we ask our staff to wear masks, take daily temperature checks and carry out rigorous cleaning measures, while ensuring that in our restaurants and guest areas we are adhering to social distancing guidelines. But what’s more important is that we make these new processes entirely simple and flexible for the guest, depending on their own level of comfort and preferences. Whether that is daily housekeeping with the same member of staff or no housekeeping at all, we remain completely fluid to how our new processes will work.
“We have always been extremely proud of the incredible experiences we offer across all of our properties and what is more important than ever is that we continue to share the Virgin Limited Edition magic, but in a slightly different way – with our guests’ safety and wellbeing always remaining our number one priority.”
Son Bunyola Estate villas can be rented on a self-catering or all-inclusive basis, ideal for groups and families to enjoy in a secluded and beautiful setting this summer. Available to rent individually or take all three villas exclusively, Son Bunyola offers guests the benefit of having both the seclusion and security of a holiday with minimal risk of exposure – without compromising on the typical luxuries and experience guests would expect.
Rates for the four-bedroom Son Balagueret villa, accommodating up to eight adults, start from €16,100 (AU$27,285 at today’s current exchange rate) for a seven-night self-catering stay during July and August 2020. Shorter stays of three, four and five nights are also available on request (outside of July and August) subject to availability.
