When opening its first hotel in Europe, Park Hyatt clearly decided to go big or go home—and they didn’t go home. This 2016 opening, perched up a hillside on the Cap Vermell Estate, is far from tourist-centric Palma. The design was based on a traditional Mallorquín village, so rather than a single monolithic structure, the hotel is a cluster of pale stone buildings that cascade down, through a series of steams and small paths, to the “town square” of four restaurants and pools. In the winter, things can be quiet, which makes it feel like an ultra-exclusive getaway. Rooms are modern, with private terraces and views of the sunny and verdant Canyamel Valley. This being a Park Hyatt, there are plenty of nice service-y touches: if you eat at the restaurant at the Cap Vermell Beach Hotel, for instance, the bill can be directly transferred to your room, and the hotel will shuttle you to and from the beach. Since the resort feels so secluded, you may not want to venture out for meals, but the restaurants—particularly the Tapas Bar, which has a terrace lined with olive trees and a menu of up to 20 cheeses, and Balearic, where island-style breakfast potatoes come in Le Creuset pots—are up to the task. You can also buy the locally harvested salt used by the hotel, Flor de Sal d’Es Trenc, from the small hotel shop.
In the Area
The Park Hyatt is a few minutes’ drive from Canyamel Beach, which guests will want to visit in the warmer months. Cala Torta, a little further on, is usually less crowded. There are also many hiking paths near the hotel; ask reception to direct you to the best viewpoints for seeing the sea. Bou Restaurant, a 20-minute drive south, is a Michelin-starred spot helmed by Tomeu Caldentey who puts together tasting menus of modern Spanish food (book ahead). A short drive or 30-minute walk west of the hotel will bring you to the Torre de Canyamel, a 13th-century tower that now hosts art exhibits and concerts.
How to Get There
Great location, property and staff! The rooms are top notch and the design of the property allows for a comfort no matter where you are. Each room does not face each other for ultimate privacy and the property is built such that it blends in beautifully in the area. The staff goes to the extreme to ensure everyone feels welcome and taken care of!
We had a wonderful stay at this immaculate and very well run hotel. The staff were very attentive and friendly and generally couldn’t do enough to help make our stay memorable. The breakfasts were superb and we loved the bbq themed evening. Our room was beautiful, very large with sitting area and a huge balcony, with sofa and reclining chair and amazing valley views.
We had 3 nights at the Park Hyatt, celebrating our anniversary, the staff were outstanding, very professional but friendly and couldn’t be faulted, the one issue we had, was that the pools are not very big and for the size of the hotel, should have been either more of them, or significantly larger with more sunbathing areas, overall though, we had a lovely weekend and will return.
