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
I travel a lot for business ...and this venue and hotel was top notch...I wish it was a bit closer to the airport, but for a family vacation...it would be just fine. The hotel itself and restaurants were spectacular hotel with beautiful views of Mallorca...the room was large, the cotton bedding was soft, it was all brand new...I loved it.
The Park Hyatt is located in the very best area of Mallorca if you are truly looking to chill down and relax. The whole eastern coast of Mallorca is a jewel and you are surrounded by nature at its very best.
The Hotel is relatively new and benefits from good upkeep - rooms are very spacious and include all required amenities.
The SPA is offering an opportunity to be transferred into an island of tranquillity and subdued luxury. The SPA is at PAR with the leading SPA hotels in the world like Six Sense or the Aman Resorts.
The hotel benefits from a very large country club with indoor and outdoor pools, Gym, Tennis and a large variety of classes as well as a Golf Club on its premises.
There are very many beautiful beaches nearby and in the season the hotel is offering more facilities at the nearby Canyamel Beach.
I will highly recommend the hotel for a winter break but no doubt that in the Spring and Summer seasons it does represent greater optionality for outdoor activities.
We will be back before the summer season kicks off.
Quality from start to finish, the welcome, the huge room and a great food and a lovely bar to relax in.
The pool and common areas are prestine.
Only drawback maybe if you cannot wall a hill or are in a wheelchair but there are staff with golf buggies to shuttle you around.
This hotel is for a treat or special occasion
Not that close to the beach and a walk to the local village but maybe u need a car to explore.
I would leave the kids behind for this trip and enjoy yourself.
We were looking for a kind of desert place for some touristic activities and sports and we did the best choice with Park Hyatt Mallorca.
The hotel is perfectly integrated into the landscape, it is a green island of luxury small villas and terraces offering a full illusion of a small local village lost in mountains. Bravo to Park Hyatt group for the classy design and respect of nature. Rooms are spacious and are facing a picturesque green valley full of golf clubs.
The hotel is very quiet out of season however the staff is in the very best shape. We could practice some bike around the region, a picnic basket (prepared by the hotel restaurant) on the seashore and some classical touristic activities. Every time Carlos from the Reception was the best touristic advice. Don't hesitate to ask Simon from the Reception for some local gourmet options, each restaurant or tapas bar was a great pleasure.
If you are a sports fan, a luxury fitness club is just 2 steps from the hotel where you can find the reach offer of group sessions or individual courses. A covered 25m swimming pool is a very nice advantage. The club is complimentary for hotel guests.
As for the food, only one hotel restaurant is open out of season but we enjoyed it every evening. A large menu allows you to discover local, international or Asian style dishes. A special mention to ambitious deserts prepared by the patissier, we loved them all.
We are looking very much forward to be back again to discover even more from the eastern region of Mallorca that we didn't know before.
First the good: the hotel is beautiful. It's like its own little Spanish village surrounded by cliffs and scenery. The rooms are spacious and the service is generally good.
It's on the other side of the island compared to the airport, so getting here was a bit of a hike, but it's brand new and impressive.
We were here in the off-season so it felt private and luxurious. The room are huge and well equipped. Although the TV did stop working on the last night.
Now the bad: The food is horrible. It's really expensive for no apparent reason (and I'm from NYC) and really subpar. The ASIA restaurant's food tasted like take out and it took MORE THAN AN HOUR to be served. Which is crazy considering the place was half empty and they saw that we had a small kid with us.
We were so fed up we decided to order room service the next night. After MORE THAN AN HOUR of waiting, we called the front desk and it turned out they totally forgot to put in our order. We had to wait another :30 for it.
If you do decide to stay here, rent a car and drive to another town every night.
Again, I really want to recommend this place as I've always been a Park Hyatt fan but I can't tell you to stay here with a straight face if you're into food or a truly exceptional experience.
