“With a wellness programme, Michelin-starred gastronomy and a unique event space built into a 17th-century cellar, we have something truly special to offer,” promises the management of the Hotel Predi Son Jaumell in Mallorca

Set in a converted 17th-century farmhouse on the eastern side of Mallorca, just over an hour’s drive from Palma airport, the Hotel Predi Son Jaumell is surrounded by three-quarters of an acre of gorgeous Mallorcan countryside, including olive groves and vineyards. The idea was to create a luxurious rural getaway, where guests can also enjoy an authentic taste of the land and culture of the island.
With this in mind, each of the 24 rooms are decorated in a high-end, contemporary and uncluttered style, with light reflecting whites, yellows and blues, whilst also incorporating traditional island techniques such as ‘llata’ (palm leaf weaving) and exposed stone walls.
The connection to the island is a central theme throughout the hotel, not least in the food and wine. There are two restaurants, one of which holds a Michelin star, and the emphasis is very much on championing local produce such as freshly-caught fish and gambas rojas (red prawns). The wine list, meanwhile, features some 400 wines, including many from the hotel’s own label.
In 2020 the hotel will open a luxury spa with gorgeous views onto the surrounding vineyards and olive groves. The spa features a sauna, plunge pool and Jacuzzi, but most importantly, there is a wide range of treatments available, including several using local, natural products such as lavender, thyme and olive oil grown in the hotel’s grounds. The spa also offers vinotherapy treatments using its own vine leaves and grapes.
Son Jaumell has also unveiled a spectacular new event space built into a cellar on the hotel estate, complete with original ceiling architraves and pillars. The space will be available for hire for private dinners, conferences and group events and the hotel will also be arranging its own events, including cinema screenings and gin and wine tastings.
“We offer our guests the real essence of Majorca, with exceptionally high standards. From the moment they arrive, they can feel a real connection to the island whilst relaxing and switching off from their day-to-day cares.”
