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
My wife and I reserved the Park Hyatt Mallorca through the American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts and we received a room upgrade to a beautiful suite (#22) and breakfast. We’ve stayed at a number of Ritz Carlton’s and this hotel surpassed all of them. The staff is wonderful, in particular, Massimo and Simon at the front desk/check-in. The food was excellent and the property was beautiful and well maintained. Only issue we encountered was that the main restaurants were closed because it was off season. The drive to the property is pretty much a straight shot from the Palma Airport, mostly on route MA-15 and it’s well worth the drive (50 min).
We will be back again, hopefully, in the spring or early fall to enjoy the pool and all the restaurants. Would highly recommend this hotel and we’re already planning our next vacation at a Park Hyatt.
We LOVED our stay here and will definitely be back again at some point. The hotel and its grounds are spectacular. Our room was midway up so afforded us great views of the sunset from our veranda. The service was great too.
Loved our stay so work inspiring 😉 enjoyed a lot, amazing food, service & of course wine. The place got everything! The rooms are super big and including all modern tech. People are lovely and always smiling.
An hour (and about 95 euros in a taxi) away from the airport, this hotel is stunningly pretty. Set on a hillside, so lots of steps, and a 20 min walk away from the beach. There were still a few non- business customers (I went for business in the first week of November), and only one of the restaurants was open. The food, room and service were excellent and truly luxurious. Access to the Country Club meant I could assuage the guilt by swimming/doing classes/going to the gym. It made a work trip very pleasurable, and would seriously consider going back with my young family for a holiday.
