i By June 3, 2024 No Comments

The newly restored and expanded Four Seasons Resort Mallorca at Formentor is now confirming reservations for arrivals beginning late August 2024.

Set amid 100 acres of seaside woodlands on a crystalline shore at the heart of a vast private estate that also includes a working vineyard, the luxury property has a 110 rooms and suites.

“Every so often we have the opportunity to revive a legendary hotel and bring it into the future as a Four Seasons experience, as we have done with the Grand-Hôtel du Cap Ferrat in the south of France, the San Domenico Palace in Sicily, and the Astir Palace Hotel in Athens,” notes Adrian Messerli, president, Hotel Operations – Europe, Middle East and Africa, of the company’s growing portfolio of historically significant properties around the Mediterranean and beyond.

“What makes the rebirth of the Hotel Formentor even more exciting is that it marks our expansion in Spain, building on the success of our hotel in Madrid and giving luxury travelers an exceptional opportunity to discover another beloved Spanish destination with Four Seasons. With Estreya leading our dedicated team, guests can anticipate a soulful experience like none other beginning later this year,” Messerli adds.

The revamp of Four Seasons Resort Mallorca was led by Elena Dueñas, architect at Estudio Lamela and project director. Priorities of the redesign included enhancing aesthetics, energy efficiency, thermal and acoustic insulation, and the restoration of the original facade, all while adapting to new spatial arrangements. International engineering firm ARUP has been integral in working to achieve the first LEED Gold environmental certification in the Balearic Islands.

Key among upgrades to the property, which originally opened as the Hotel Formentor in 1929, was the addition of modern technologies throughout while adhering strictly to Four Seasons sustainability standards.  In the surrounding landscape, native plantings of fragrant flowers are now growing among towering pine groves, allowing for walking paths, exotic garden settings for weddings and other events, and quiet spaces for solitary reflection.

All 110 guest rooms and suites have terraces facing the sea, and some also offer private plunge pools.  The décor is bright and airy with natural materials throughout.

Dining concepts at Four Seasons Resort Mallorca include:

  • Mel, offering a farm-fresh menu of Mediterranean favourites from breakfast to late night;
  • Quiosc, a casual open kitchen and terrace is shaded by pines and cooled by sea breezes by one of the pools;
  • and Cercle – the Catalan word for circle, which also happens to be the shape of the bar – a gathering place for sharing stories over exquisite wines and inventive cocktails.

In addition, the property will have a pop-up beach bar, Xiringuito, will offer refreshing drinks and light fare, and a new beach restaurant and bar opening next year.  Shima, a Nikkei-style restaurant, is also coming soon.

Wellness experiences include several pools, a tennis court, a state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor yoga spaces and numerous paths and hiking trails throughout the estate and surrounding peninsula.  A pop-up spa will offer treatments incorporating indigenous botanicals, while a new, full-service spa is expected to open next year.
