Son Bunyola Hotel
This newest member of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition hotels is located on the glorious 1,300-acre Son Bunyola Estate in Mallorca’s protected Tramuntana mountain range. Branson has restored a beautiful historic finca (manor house) to its former glory and converted it into an intimate and luxurious boutique hotel, whose 26 rooms and suites offer breathtaking views of the sea or mountains.
The island’s verdant north-west coast sets the stage for this striking 16th-century finca, which has been thoughtfully modernised to marry new design with existing historical elements such as wooden carpentry, stone arches, wrought ironwork and lime rendering. Inside you’ll find 26 rooms and suites, each with its own distinct charm and character, and in some cases, 360-degree mountain and sea views. Of particular note are the two striking Tower Suites, one of which was originally a medieval defence tower built in the 13th century.
The former olive press is now home to one of the property’s two restaurants and offers beautiful outdoor spaces for alfresco dining, while the sweeping terrace boasts a picturesque pool with more far-reaching views. Spa treatment rooms and a hot tub aid relaxation after days spent walking or cycling in the stunning surrounding countryside.
