Virgin Limited Opens New Mallorca Property

Son Bunyola Hotel and Villas – Sir Richard Branson’s newest luxury hotel in the beautiful Tramuntana Mountains of Mallorca — has officially opened, joining its three showcase villas on the estate.

It’s not just Mallorca’s newest luxury hotel, but is also a part of Mallorcan history that has been meticulously restored, and is steeped in heritage on a 1,300-acre estate on the Mediterranean coastline.

Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group said: “Today is a momentous day as we open our beautiful hotel, Son Bunyola. The northwest coast of Mallorca has long held a very special place in my heart, after first visiting as a young boy with my Mum and Dad.”

He continued: “The historic finca on a UNESCO World Heritage site was just waiting to be lovingly brought back to life, and the team has taken so much care to restore it. I truly believe we have the very best and most unspoilt location on the island with three miles of its own pristine coastline, set within 1300 acres of exquisite land with the stunning Tramuntana Mountains as its backdrop. There’s also olive groves, vineyards, and some of the best hiking and cycling in the world. I’m hoping it will bring back the magic to those who can remember our original boutique hotel in Mallorca from the early days.”

And he added: “This is just the beginning for Son Bunyola and its wonderful team, and I cannot wait to welcome you here and share it with you.”

The property has 26 rooms and suites; two restaurants – a Mediterranean restaurant, a tapas restaurant and several outdoor dining terraces; a comprehensive wellness program; a 28-metre swimming pool; as well as Aqua bikes and new Pickle Ball lines to add to the estate’s tennis court.

Vincent Padioleau, General Manager of Son Bunyola Hotel and Villas, said: “This is such an exciting time as we launch the first European hotel for Virgin Limited Edition.  And I couldn’t be prouder of this passion project that will undoubtedly live up to all of the Virgin Limited Edition values and experiences in one of the most incredible locations in Mallorca.”
