Mallorca is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands and is a destination I’ve been looking to visit for quite some time but, up until reading the press release on this new property, I wasn’t even aware that there was a Park Hyatt being constructed on the island.
I was reasonably sure that, if we visited Mallorca, we’d probably rent a villa at Marriott’s Club Son Antem where the full condo/town home (complete with kitchen) would help to keep costs down…but now I’m not so sure.
The Park Hyatt Mallorca is the brand’s first resort in Europe and, like the W Hotel I’ve already mentioned, just opened its doors on 1 June.
While I wasn’t really taken by the look of the property’s main buildings…..
…the inside of the resort looks absolutely fantastic!
The resort has 142 rooms, 14 “Park Executive” suites measuring over 1,000 sq ft (100 sq m) in size and two Presidential Suites of over 1,600 sq ft (150 sq m) in size.
For dining the resort offers four options:
- The “Balearic Restaurant” (local fine cuisine)
- The Café Sa Plaça (all day dining cafe)
- Tapas Bar with outdoor terrace
- The Asia restaurant – dishes from China, India, Indonesia and Thailand
As the nearest beach isn’t that accessible directly from the resort (there’s a beach club “6 minutes away” but there’s no mention if that’s 6 minutes by foot or by car), three pools have been provided – two are heated and the third is a dedicated children’s pool.
The resort also has its own 24hr fitness center and a Spa but, more impressively, guests can also use the facilities at the adjoining Country Club which includes an all-purpose sports field, two Tennis Courts and further recreational and fitness facilities including an indoor heated and outdoor pool.
I love the description that’s given for the resort’s setting:
Park Hyatt Mallorca is situated in the beautiful valley of Cap Vermell on the north-east coast of Mallorca. This undiscovered, undeveloped part of the island is a new luxury destination, a hidden gem in the Mediterranean just waiting to be discovered. Boasting breathtaking views of varied landscapes, year round sunshine, a multitude of outdoor wellness activities for adults and children alike, with a remote yet easily accessible location. The area of Cap Vermell offers a tranquil, rugged experience for guests to enjoy the natural, unspoilt beauty of the island to the full. Wildlife lovers will enjoy an abundance of stunning flora and fauna, while history buffs can explore a multitude of historical sites nearby.
Award & Pricing
The Park Hyatt Mallorca is a Hyatt Category 5 property which means that it will set you back 20,000 Gold Passport Points for an award night in a standard room or 10,000 + $125 for a points & cash redemption (if the property ever opens these up).
During peak season (June – September) prices at the resort appear to be pretty steep with prices for a standard room regularly over €600 ($672/£465) per night.
Even out of season the property isn’t exactly a bargain with prices over €300 ($336/£230) per night – that was for November midweek and the weather in Mallorca in November isn’t likely to be that warm.
With all that in mind, this makes the resort a very good candidate for Hyatt Gold Passport Redemptions (at least during peak season where you’ll be getting over 3.3 cents/point value).
As things stand I haven’t been able to find any Cash & Points availability so there’s a good chance this will be one of Hyatt’s resorts that decides to opt-out of that part of the loyalty program – considering the prices that’s a big shame as cash & points would be amazing value here especially as you’d then be able to apply a Diamond Suite upgrade to your stay.
I really like the look of this hotel while I’m not that enamored with the pricing or the apparent lack of points & cash availability. I’m a strong believer that properties should either embrace the whole loyalty program idea or not be part of it at all…there should be no leeway for properties to pick and choose which bits of a loyalty program they like (some of Starwood’s properties are the worst offenders).
Nevertheless, at 20,000 points for a night, this is definitely a very tempting proposition (albeit only one we would take up during peak season when we’d be guaranteed good weather and guaranteed a great return on my Hyatt Gold Passport points).
The property itself looks great (at least on the inside) but it’s the description of the location that has me wanting to visit most – I love the idea of a great resort in a quiet, more secluded location and this one looks pretty nice.
