Hilton Hotels has opened its first hotel in Mallorca, the Hilton Sa Torre Mallorca. The sixth Hilton to open in Spain, it will be operated under a long-term franchise agreement with owning company Dracplus S.L, part of the Drac Group, and Gestión T3 Hoteles SA, who will manage the property.Wolfgang M. Neumann, President of Hilton Hotels Europe, said: “This unique property marks the latest step in our strategy to grow Hilton’s Family of Hotels in Spain and Portugal to over 50 properties within the next five years. The debut of our first hotel in Mallorca comes in the same month as the opening of our Hilton Madrid Airport, indicating the progress we are making to achieve this target.”
“Whilst Mallorca’s tourism market is well established, there is significant demand within the upmarket segment for both leisure and MICE travel. With Spain’s third largest airport, Mallorca is one of the most accessible and popular island destinations in the Mediterranean, attracting around 25 million visitors each year.”
Built around a 14th Century tower and ‘finca’, Hilton Sa Torre Mallorca has undergone a major restoration programme. Its new design has remained faithful to its traditional Mallorcan architecture, whilst combining a crisp and modern interior. Spread over 12 different buildings, the hotel’s 90 spacious guest rooms, including 15 well-appointed suites, showcase a contemporary look and feel and offer the very latest in-room technology, such as high speed internet access and flat screen LCD televisions. In the hotel’s historic manor house building, a combination of antique furniture and clever interior design have been used to restore many of its rooms to their former glory.
Located near Maioris Golf Club, and only a short drive from some of Mallorca’s best beaches, the hotel is the perfect choice for leisure and golf breaks. To cater for the leisure market Hilton Sa Torre Mallorca provides a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities to help guests relax and unwind. Situated amongst landscaped gardens, the extensive outdoor grounds feature two outdoor swimming pools- one of which is heated- a separate children’s pool, two tennis courts and a full size football pitch. A fully equipped spa and fitness club offers a range of facilities, such as beauty treatment rooms, an indoor pool with water jets, a Hilton Fitness by Precor gym, as well as a ‘hydrotherapy circuit’ featuring steam room, sauna, aquadom, ice fountain and sensation shower.
