Now Accepting Reservations: Four Seasons Resort Mallorca at Formentor Opens This Summer

Formentor’s very own “grande dame” is about to begin its new chapter as the doors open to new dining, wellness and recreational experiences, bringing high-end tourism to the shores of Pollensa.

Four Seasons Resort Mallorca at Formentor

The newly restored and expanded Four Seasons Resort Mallorca at Formentor is now confirming reservations for arrivals beginning late August 2024.

Set amid 40 hectares (100 acres) of seaside woodlands on the crystalline shore at the heart of a vast private estate that also includes a working vineyard, the brand new Four Seasons Resort offers sanctuary yet guests are easily connected to the rest of Pollensa.

The hotel group are clearly excited. Adrian Messerli, President of Hotel Operations states, “Every so often we have the opportunity to revive a legendary hotel and bring it into the future as a Four Seasons experience, as we have done with the Grand-Hôtel du Cap Ferrat in the south of France, the San Domenico Palace in Sicily, and the Astir Palace Hotel in Athens.” The old Hotel Formentor is firmly placed in this portfolio of historically significant properties around the Mediterranean and beyond.

This is luxury tourism at its best. General Manager Estreya Gosalbez describes the best way for guests to arrive: “Our limousine service will pick your party up at the airport and take you to Puerto Pollensa. There, you’ll transfer to a boat and sail across clear waters surrounded by green forests, sheer cliffs and inviting beaches on the way to our private dock, arriving as the glitterati once did before there were roads to the peninsula. We can also arrange for a tender to pick you up from your private yacht anchored nearby.”

Building Within the Historic Footprint While Restoring the Native Landscape

Led by Elena Dueñas, architect at Estudio Lamela and project director, priorities have included enhancing aesthetics, energy efficiency, thermal and acoustic insulation, and the restoration of the original façade, all while adapting to new spatial arrangements. International engineering firm ARUP has been integral in working to achieve the first LEED Gold environmental certification in the Balearic Islands.

Key among upgrades to the property, which originally opened as the Hotel Formentor in 1929, was the addition of modern technologies throughout while adhering strictly to Four Seasons sustainability standards.  In the surrounding landscape, native plantings of fragrant flowers are now growing among towering pine groves, allowing for walking paths, exotic garden settings for weddings and other events, and quiet spaces for solitary reflection.

The Resort

All 110 guest rooms and suites have terraces facing the sea, and some also offer private plunge pools.  The décor is bright and airy with natural materials throughout.

Restaurants at the Four Seasons Resort Mallorca include Mel, with a farm-fresh menu of Mediterranean favourites from breakfast to late night. Quiosc, a casual open kitchen and terrace shaded by pines by one of the pools. Opening onto a terrace at the heart of the hotel is Cercle (the Catalan word for circle, which also happens to be the shape of the bar) a wine and cocktail bar.

On the beach, alongside plush sunbeds, is a pop-up beach bar, Xiringuito. A new beach restaurant and bar will open next year. Also coming soon is Shima, a Nikkei-style restaurant.

Also at the resort are several pools, a tennis court, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, outdoor yoga spaces and numerous paths and hiking trails throughout the estate and surrounding peninsula. A pop-up spa will offer treatments incorporating indigenous botanicals, while a new, full-service spa is expected to open next year. There are also water based activities and a kids club, a dedicated teens centre will open next year.
