Gran Hotel Son Net - Mallorca, Spain

A lovingly restored 17th century finca set amidst the rugged Tramuntana Mountains, Gran Hotel Son Net is one of Mallorca’s finest boutique hotels. Although twenty minutes from Palma de Mallorca, this sanctuary seems miles away from the bustling city life. Stately arched doorways, traditional timber beams and plush materials handcrafted on the island adorn the authentic Mallorcan-styled interiors, which also include luxurious marble baths and original artworks. Each spacious suite is individually decorated and features splendid vistas of the mountains and the surrounding valley. The hotel’s two gourmet restaurants offer exquisite Mediterranean cuisine in refined indoor and outdoor spaces. Guests can also indulge in the on-site beauty and treatment center, or savor fine wines and delicious cocktails at the Mirador bar, by the glistening pool.
