Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts will add Mallorca to its European network, with the luxury hotelier to manage the former Hotel Formentor.
Originally opened in 1929, the existing hotel will undergo extensive renovations before it is unveiled as a Four Seasons experience in 2023. The property will offer 110 rooms and suites and is located on a 1,200 hectare plot of the Formentor Peninsula, offering access to a pristine beach, as well as a functioning vineyard nearby.
“Following our entry into Spain in 2020, we are very excited to continue this momentum and expand our presence in this important market with a resort in Mallorca, offering guests a unique Four Seasons experience in a top European destination,” said John Davison, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, can be accessed via ferry or flight from Barcelona, with additional direct flights from many European cities. Mallorca’s natural beauty and easy accessibility long established the island as a top tourist destination for European and international travellers. Mallorca’s turquoise waters, limestone cliffs and lush greenery make the picturesque island one of the world’s most sought-after destinations.
All of the property’s 110 rooms and suites will offer balconies with sea and forest views. The renovations will be overseen by architects Estudio Lamela and SCT Estudio de Arquitectura, with interior designs by Gilles & Boissier.
At the vineyard a short five-minute drive from the Resort, guests can enjoy exclusive programming, including farm-to-table activities. The Resort will also include an indoor restaurant, beachfront restaurant and café, and a poolside bar and grill.
Four Seasons’ new project in Mallorca will become the brand’s second offering in Spain following the recent opening of the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid in September 2020.
