Set in the exclusive Cap Vermell Estate and designed in the style of an authentic Mallorquín village, Park Hyatt Mallorca is the first European Park Hyatt resort and is receiving some well deserved attention. Located on the undiscovered Northeast Coast, this secluded setting offers guests a unique and tranquil environment in which to absorb the splendor of this opulent destination. All of their 142 luxurious guest rooms (including 16 exquisitely designed suites), are highlighted by private terraces that feature picturesque views of the lush Canyamel Valley or Balearic Sea.
Guests with epicurean proclivities will delight in the hotel’s selection of world-class dining options. The restaurants are centered on Park Hyatt’s masterfully created Mallorquín village square, Plaza de la Torre. The restaurant simply entitled Tapas is sure to wow you with its inclusive social space highlighting an outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy freshly prepared tapas, classic and original cocktails, and an extensive selection of wines. Tapas offers a sociable dining experience and a mouthwatering menu that emphasizes the genuine taste of Spanish Gastronomy.
Serving bite size dishes, the tapas bar uses only the best Spanish ingredients with specialties that include a range of up to 20 different cow, sheep, and goat cheeses and four different mouth-watering hams, which are skillfully aged between 16 and 50 months. Highlighted dishes include spicy calamari, grilled scallops with smoked butter, and baked farm egg with potato cream and Iberian ham.
Tapas seamlessly captures the style of an elegant sitting room in a private home, with comfortable sofas and noteworthy art. Guests are welcomed into the inviting space where live cooking takes center stage in front of a wood-fired oven. For warm evenings, an outdoor terrace offers stunning views over the Canyamel Valley, and for the cooler months, an elegant fireplace creates a cozy, comfortable, and intimate ambience. Alternatively, Park Hyatt’s traditional Balearic restaurant is rooted in the strong culinary values of the region, where dining is a social affair. The cuisine offered is truly authentic, inspired, and as good as anything you will find nestled amidst this slice of paradise.
If you are seeking something a bit different within your temporary homestead, you will not be disappointed. A wide range of authentically prepared Pan Asian dishes created by specialty chefs are front and center at Asia Restaurant, or you can simply relax at the Café Sa Plaça, the perfect venue to leisurely digest a newspaper, magazine or simply catch-up on emails. From sustainably caught fish and free range poultry to local farm-grown vegetables, fruit, and olives to seasonally produced cheese and olive oil, Park Hyatt Mallorca sources much of its food locally, where “organic” is simply a way of life.
When it’s time to relax, you are in extremely good hands. Luxury facilities at Park Hyatt Mallorca include a landscaped poolside terrace featuring three swimming pools, two of which are heated, and a separate children’s splash pool. The decadent Serenitas Spa offers a welcome respite for the weary traveler — or anyone simply in search of some serious pampering. With seven treatment rooms, including two couples’ treatment rooms with their own terrace, you will be very well attended. The selection of signature treatments using locally inspired therapies will soothe even the most stressed-out businessperson, and the spa is complete with a Himalayan salt sauna, steam rooms, and an outdoor Jacuzzi that will quite simply finish you off.
Park Hyatt Mallorca is also home to the Residence, housing a selection of elegant meeting rooms and a stunning show kitchen that opens onto a beautiful Mallorquín courtyard. The Residence is styled with fine furniture and an artistic flair to create a visually impressive, yet functional meeting space. A stunning 2,400-square-foot ballroom offers an extensive terrace and access to a landscaped garden with a gazebo overlooking the valley. This space is an excellent choice for a wide variety of events ranging from a corporate retreat to an elegant wedding.
A significant point of interest is that Park Hyatt guests can also enjoy access to the superb facilities at Cap Vermell, including a beach club that’s just a 10-minute walk away. The estate’s country club boasts paddle ball courts, two tennis courts, an indoor heated swimming pool, as well as an outdoor pool. Additionally, within 15 minutes of the hotel, guests will have a choice of four superb golf courses, including a full 18-hole course adjacent to the resort.
“Park Hyatt Mallorca provides guests an unrivaled resort experience different than anything else offered on the island,” says Peter Fulton, Hyatt’s Group President for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We look forward to welcoming guests to Park Hyatt Mallorca on this previously undiscovered corner of the island and showing them the rare and intimate experiences that the Park Hyatt brand delivers.”
All in all, Park Hyatt’s foray into the European market is starting off tremendously well. This Mallorquin location left me extremely well rested and sporting an ear-to-ear smile. Give this a “must visit” spot on your list of global travel destinations.
