Jumeirah’s first European resort is now open
Five-star Jumeirah Port Soller in Mallorca welcomed its first guests on April 24
Crowning a cliff overlooking the splendid bay of Sóller, Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa occupies an area of 18,000 square meters, offering 120 rooms and suites, two restaurants, four bars, two swimming pools and Talise Spa.
The resort is divided into 11 low-rise structures respecting the harmony of the landscape and integrating the visitor into the exceptional natural environment. The interiors have been carefully selected in order to create a contemporary and comfortable look. Different shades of beige and earth colours and local woods such as olive and pine, local crafts and vernacular architecture, spacious rooms with large windows overlooking the sea, mountains or harbour make the resort an unparalleled experience.
The gastronomic is supreme with the opening of two restaurants, Es Fanals and Cap Roig, the latter promising to become a culinary must on the island thanks to its creative cuisine with a strong local accent and the use of the freshest seasonal products.
