On 1st June 2016, way across the Atlantic Ocean in Chicago, America’s Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of its first resort in Europe – on Mallorca’s north-east coast.
Set in the exclusive Cap Vermell Estate, Park Hyatt Mallorca is designed in the style of an authentic Mallorquín village, the secluded setting offering guests a unique and tranquil environment.
The new destination encompasses 142 luxurious guest rooms including 16 suites. Rooms are complete with private terraces that feature stunning views of the verdant Canyamel Valley or Balearic Sea.
“The opening of our first Park Hyatt European resort marks a significant milestone for Hyatt and underlines our commitment to meaningful and strategic growth in this region where we know our guests are travelling,” said Peter Fulton, group president for Europe, Middle East and Africa, as well as Southwest Asia for Hyatt.
Guests can also enjoy access to the superb facilities at the brand new Cap Vermell estate development, scheduled for completion in July 2016. Additionally, within 15 minutes of the hotel, guests will have a choice of four top-class golf courses, including a full 18-hole course adjacent to the resort.

Hyatt hotel due to open on Mallorca in 2016
Park Hyatt, a brand of the American Hyatt Hotels Corporation, has plans to launch in Canyamel on Mallorca’s eastern coastline. Set to open in 2016, it will be the first Hyatt-branded hotel on this Balearic Island.
As part of a management agreement with Spanish real estate development company, Cap Vermell Hotel Proyectos y Promociones SL, the 142-room luxury resort will be built to evoke a Mallorcan hilltop village whilst encompassing state of the art technologies and facilities. Guests can expect two restaurants, a lounge bar, poolside bar, separate beach club, Spa and fitness centre and generous space for meetings and events.
Peter Norman, Senior Vice President, Real Estate and Development for EAME, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, said of the project, “Mallorca is one of Europe’s most beautiful areas, and we believe that Park Hyatt Mallorca will deliver an unprecedented level of luxury and unrivalled hospitality experience to guests. Spain continues to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and Park Hyatt Mallorca will enable Hyatt to further enhance its visibility in Europe and further pursue its strategy to increase its brand presence in the region and new markets.”
Canyamel is an interesting location for Park Hyatt as it is far from the traditional tourist honeypots of Palma and the southwest, with the International Airport an hour’s drive. However, Daniel Chavarria Waschke, Managing Director of Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty, has been monitoring progress in the area.
“First, we are of course delighted to welcome Park Hyatt to the Island”, says Daniel, “another leading name to add to the likes of Jumeirah, St Regis and Sheraton who already have resorts on Mallorca. I suspect one attraction for Canyamel was the international standard 18-hole golf course that will neighbour the Park Hyatt. This course was acquired by Erwin Franz Muller at the end of last year, a man well known on the Island as being the owner of the international perfumery chain bearing his name. He has made clear his plans for Canyamel to set the benchmark for golf on the Island and, between him and Hyatt, this eastern coastal location will undoubtedly grow in stature.”
The Park Hyatt will overlook the Canyamel valley with views of the sea and the ancient town of Arta and also be within walking distance of the golf course and the historic Cuevas de Arta. The hotel is at the centre of a 61-acre master development, owned and developed by Grupo Cap Vermell, which will include residential properties and a number of high-end luxury villas. Meanwhile Erwin Franz Muller and his team are planning an ambitious project to modernise and improve the golf facilities first constructed back in 1988. In doing so he hopes to win back golfers who may have defected to cheaper locations such as Egypt and Turkey, but without necessarily finding the same quality offered in Mallorca.
