Four Seasons are beefing up their collection of beach hotels in Europe around the Mediterranean. It was only months ago when I announced the San Domenico Palace, Taormina, as the newest Four Seasons hotel in Europe. Then we had Four Seasons Puglia and now we have Four Seasons Mallorca.
Why would you care? Let me explain. This Four Seasons resort is located on the former Hotel Formentora, a seaside resort on the Spanish island of Mallorca. This hotel offers direct access to a pristine beach.
Of course, there is no Four Seasons rewards program, but if you are a regular guest of the Four Seasons or even want to try this iconic brand for the first time, you can take advantage of loyalty style benefits at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our concierge.
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 (3,000 acre) plot of the Formentor Peninsula, offering access to a pristine beach, as well as a functioning vineyard a short five-minute drive away.
“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,” says 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 a short 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 travelers. Mallorca’s turquoise waters, limestone cliffs, and lush greenery make the picturesque island one of the world’s most sought-after destinations.
Located an hour away from Palma de Mallorca Airport, the upcoming Four Seasons in Mallorca offers something for everyone through its extensive culinary offerings, relaxing spa facilities, and exclusive seaside activities as one of the only properties in the area with direct beach access.
All of the 110 rooms and suites will offer balconies with sea and forest views, allowing guests to soak in their beautiful surroundings. 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, a beachfront restaurant and café, and a poolside bar and grill. Additional onsite activities will include tennis courts and beautiful spa facilities.
The project has been designed to respect and protect its natural surroundings through various environmental initiatives, such as the restoration of native vegetation and planting, reduced water consumption, rainwater harvesting and the use of greywater for landscape irrigation, heat recovery systems, solar power through the use of solar panels, and food waste management systems. Other initiatives include the use of electric vehicles and low energy consumption through a very considered design approach.
Four Seasons’ new project in Mallorca will become the second Four Seasons offering in Spain following the recent opening of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid in September of 2020.
