Virgin Limited Edition will open a 28-room luxury hotel in Mallorca


(May 15, 2022, 08:24 +07)
Virgin Limited Edition, Sir Richard Branson’s collection of luxury hotels and retreats, has unveiled plans to open a 28-bedroom hotel on his Son Bunyola estate in Mallorca’s stunning Tramuntana region.

The Son Bunyola Hotel, already under construction, is set to open in the summer of 2023 with reservations opening later this year.

The development is part of a spectacular 810-acre estate, located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which already occupies the collection’s three self-contained private villas – Sa Punta de S’Aguila, Sa Terra Rotja and Son Balagueret .

Dating back to the 15th century and surrounded by vineyards, citrus, almond and olive trees, the Finca is a historic monument, central to the private estate and fundamental to the history of the area. The hotel will retain all the original features of the Finca.

Jon Brown, Managing Director of Virgin Limited Edition, said: “The northwest coast of Mallorca has always been a very special place for Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Limited Edition. We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to restore this magnificent landmark and honor its rich history, and we look forward to welcoming another small luxury hotel to our portfolio, including inviting guests from around the world to experience this preserved corner of the world.

The hotel will include the main Finca and the Tafona, which previously contained the historic olive press, as well as several annex buildings which will house 28 rooms and suites, including two showcase Tower Suites – one of which was originally a tower of medieval defense built in the 15th century.

The hotel will offer two restaurants, lounges, several outdoor terraces and a brand new swimming pool with views of the surrounding countryside and Mallorca’s famous Foradada.

Sustainability is anchored at the heart of this conservation project, as are all Virgin Limited Edition properties, with a number of key initiatives being fundamental in the early design stages.

The hotel’s hot water will be preheated using energy recovered from the air conditioning and refrigeration systems; while the installation of a biomass boiler must be fueled by recycled wood chips.

Thermal insulation of buildings has been improved and water is collected and reused for irrigation, while the addition of a building management system will be introduced throughout the hotel to monitor and control lighting, air conditioning and energy consumption in the property.

The company appointed Rialto Living as interior designer.
