Like a bright pink ruby set in emeralds, the Gran Hotel Son Net dominates the hills that it nestles within. At the foot of the Tramuntana mountains, the most dramatic of backdrops, it overlooks the church tower and red-tiled roofs of the quiet town of Puigpunyet, below. It’s indoors, however, that the drama and opulence of one of Majorca’s leading luxury hotels comes into its own.

An exquisite collection of 31 rooms and suites, the Son Net’s mystique lies, in part, in the building itself — a rustic 17th-century finca lovingly transformed into a peaceful idyll. While the structure may be old at its core, nods to modern art throughout its decor result in a warm contrast that adds to its charming atmosphere.

Guests can both indulge and unwind in the sumptuous space of the Grand Suite Cottage, complete with its own outdoor terrace and L’Occitane accessories.

The Royal Suites boast bright and spacious reception areas and private gardens to enjoy sunsets; the Presidential Suite is a fittingly grand vantage point to take in the magnificent landscape. Elegance, of course, is not confined to the bedrooms. At Oleum, chefs serve up island fare with flair, transforming the best local ingredients into delicious creations. Come summer, tables spill out onto the Son Net’s secluded terrace every Friday to make the most of the balmy evenings. In Gazebo, the hotel’s second restaurant, it’s the sea that takes centre stage with plates inspired by the Mediterranean.

Guests in search of a less formal setting can step into the Son Net bar, where a range of poolside snacks are on offer, with a cocktail list that enhances the relaxing moods of dusk.

Just a 20-minute drive from Palma Airport, Gran Hotel Son Net offers guests the perfect base for exploring the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands. Be it walking on the glittering beaches at Port de Pollença, Sollér and Alcúdia, or strolling through the vibrant streets and squares of Palma de Majorca, there are many adventures to be had on this enchanting isle. This is made all the better knowing the hospitality of the Son Net is waiting for guests at the end of the day.
