Discerning travellers are doing it in Milan, Moscow and, now, Mallorca: experiencing Hyatt’s pre-eminent brand, Park Hyatt. Europe’s other seven Park Hyatt hotels have city locations; this one – Spain’s first – is in the picturesque northeast Canyamel valley.
The luxury brand’s hallmarks are contemporary-style gastronomy, architecture, design, and fine art, all with what Hyatt calls ‘timeless regional trademarks’. Developed by owners Cap Vermell Investments Group and managed by Hyatt Hotels Corporation, the hotel was built to resemble a ‘Mallorquín’ hillside village. To minimize its carbon footprint, stone was harvested during the site clearance to clad the buildings.
Interior Mallorcan ‘trademarks’ include Café Sa Plaça’s Manacor-made super-sized wooden table, and locally based artist Gustavo’s joyful art. Manu Pereira (transferred from Cap Vermell Beach Hotel) creates the Balearic Restaurant’s seasonal cuisine from fresh Mallorcan ingredients, including seafood from Cala Ratjada. The aptly named Asia Restaurant offers the exotic cuisines of that region – which boasts the world’s largest number of Park Hyatt Hotels.
Michelin-starred Basque chef David García designed the food for the Tapas Bar, and all-day Café Sa Plaça also offers take-home local products, including olive oil, olives, salts, honey, cheeses, and preserves. The village feel is enhanced by the addition of a bakery. “We want our guests to live and breathe a ‘Mallorquin’ experience,” said pre-opening general manager John Beveridge – whose impressive Hyatt career began in the ‘80s in the Middle East. “My main focus was to make it as Mallorcan as possible, without it being patronising.”
Of the 142 rooms, 16 are suites (including two Presidential). All rooms are spacious (50-150 sqm), with west-facing terraces. Park Hyatt essentials include bathroom mirrors with integrated TV (watch your favourite programme in the bath) and luxurious Bottega Veneta toiletries.

The hotel has three outdoor pools (two heated) and the Serenitas Spa – the only one on Mallorca where you can sink into the hot sand of an alpha-quartz-sand bed. Sublime facilities and signature treatments await hotel guests and day spa visitors. Meetings and events facilities include the Park Ballroom (with vehicular access) and Cap Vermell Residence, comprising eight meeting rooms.
With the hotel now open and trading, a permanent general manager has been appointed: Michael Schmid, a Swiss national, has moved from managing the Hyatt Andaz in Costa Rica. His new post is in a location described by John Beveridge as “accessibly remote”. An hour’s easy drive from the airport and you can be on the private terrace of your Park Hyatt room, gazing out at a part of the island that’s just waiting to be discovered.
