Gran Hotel Son Net
Luxury requires space – this is the motto of the Gran Hotel Son Net in Puigpunyent. The New York host built a 30-metre pool in the garden as well as 31 rooms and suites – 53 were permitted – in this five-star residence. The 150 square meters Presidential Suite has two queen size beds, marble bathroom and is furnished with antiques (1,300 euros/night). Knight’s armour is a testimony to the fearless Pirate de Net who built the three-storey mansion with carved wooden ceilings in the 17th century. Here guests, including Oscar prize winner Hilary Swank, don’t feel as though they are on show but, instead, as though they are staying in the private home of a good friend. For a romantic dinner, reserve the spacious African lodge-style treehouse with stunning views of the valley.
A small traditional town, just 15 minutes west of Palma, Puigpunyent is a mountain village – with highlights including La Reserva Puig de Galatzó and the Gran Hotel Son Net. […] Puigpunyent
Hotel Formentor was already a hideaway long before the word was even coined and the list of notable guests who have visited in the past ninety years is long and ranges from Charlie Chaplin to the Shah of Persia. Admittedly, Mallorca’s oldest top hotel can’t be compared to the standard of today’s five-star hotels. However, the hotel in the Port de Pollença with 121 rooms, villas and bungalows (Grand Suite 1,800 euros/night) offers a true highlight in the form of the unspoilt beauty and setting of Mallorca’s most northerly point. There isn’t a spa, but guests can enjoy open-air massages or book a Balinese private cabin with daybed and jacuzzi. The hotel’s 80,000 square metre gardens with established trees and enchanting paths by the sea are quite magical.
Politicians and film directors love the Can Simoneta for its tranquillity and view – the perfect setting for writing memoirs or the next script. The postcard-perfect view of the gardens to the endless blue beyond punctuated only by the occasional stem of agave is, indeed, breathtaking. One of the highlights of this five-star hotel (adults only) in Canyamel is its direct access to the sea via a winding stairway through the cliff which leads guests to a private bay. The 24 puristically designed rooms and suites were designed by architect Antoni Esteva. Those wishing total privacy book the Grand Suite with private pool and garden in a secluded woodland setting. In the Beach House with six suites (1,100 euros/night) guests can fall asleep to the gentle murmur of the waves.
Located in northeast of Mallorca by the sea, this 5-star adults only hotel with 28 guest rooms and suites offers spectacular views and gardens, a great place for relaxation. Book now! […] Can Simoneta Finca Hotel Canyamel

The main building with its nooks and tucked away corners is characterised by several patios, stone archways, antique tiling and narrow stairways leading to the 13 standard and deluxe rooms.
