A new chapter for a historic property

 
Mallorca’s former Hotel Formentor first opened in 1929 and is now set to enter an exciting new chapter as it undergoes a renovation before reopening with Four Seasons in 2023. On its return, the resort will comprise 110 guestrooms and suites.
 
The hotel The hotel is located on a 1,200-hectare expanse of the Formentor Peninsula, an hour away from Palma de Mallorca Airport. Here, guests have direct access to a stretch of beach, while a functioning vineyard is just a 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,” said John Davison, president and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “It is a privilege to work alongside Emin Capital to create a new vision for this exceptional property and we look forward to a successful partnership for many years to come.”
 
“Formentor is a landmark of Mallorca in a key and unique setting in the Mediterranean,” added Jordi Badia, chairman and CEO of Emin Capital. “For Emin Capital, the goal of our investment was to protect both, and to reinvigorate the resort with a great luxury brand such as Four Seasons. We are committed to implementing sustainable and green initiatives in our revitalisation of this property, while maintaining an exceptional design, facilities and renowned service.”
 

Luxury hospitality and an appreciation of nature

 
This upcoming Four Seasons resort promises to cater for all guests through an extensive culinary offering, along with wellness facilities and water sports, being one of the only hotels in the area to have direct beach access.
 
The hotel’s 110 rooms and suites will come with balconies offering views over the forest and sea. Renovations will be overseen by architects Estudio Lamela and SCT Estudio de Arquitectura, and interior designer Gilles & Boissier.
 
The resort will be home to an indoor restaurant, as well as a beachfront restaurant and café, and a poolside bar and grill. While staying here, guests will be able to use the tennis courts, unwind in the spa and visit the nearby vineyard for exclusive programming such as farm-to-table dining.
 
Meetings and events such as weddings will also be catered for across three event spaces with outdoor options.
 
Overall, the transformation aims to draw on and protect the natural surroundings. Planned environmental initiatives here include the restoration of native vegetation, rainwater harvesting, the use of solar panels and food-waste management.
 
This property is set to become the second Four Seasons hotel in Spain following on from Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid.
