Following our entry into Spain in 2020, we’re very excited to continue this momentum and expand our presence in this important market
– John Davison
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has announced plans to reimagine the former Hotel Formentor in Mallorca, Spain, originally opened in 1929.

Four Seasons is collaborating with Emin Capital, a private equity investment company focused on hospitality and real estate, to sensitively transform the hotel into a 110-key luxury resort, while retaining the destination’s unique sense of place.

The existing building will undergo extensive renovations before it’s unveiled as a Four Seasons experience in 2023, complete with a luxury Four Seasons spa.

The property is located on a 1,200-hectare plot of the Formentor Peninsula, offering access to a pristine beach and a nearby functioning vineyard.

Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, is known for its turquoise waters, limestone cliffs and lush greenery. All rooms and suites at the new resort will offer balconies with sea and forest views, to immerse guests in the island’s verdant natural beauty.

Renovations will be overseen by architects Estudio Lamela and SCT Estudio de Arquitectura, with interior design by Gilles & Boissier.

Dining options will include an indoor restaurant, a beachfront restaurant and café and a poolside bar and grill.

At the vineyard a short five-minute drive from the resort, guests will also be able to enjoy exclusive programming, including farm-to-table activities.

“Following our entry into Spain in 2020, we’re very excited to continue this momentum and expand our presence in this important market with a resort in Mallorca,” remarked John Davison, Four Seasons president and CEO.

The project is being designed to respect and protect its natural surroundings through various environmental initiatives, such as restoration of native vegetation and planting, reduced water consumption, rainwater harvesting and the implementation of solar panels.

Other initiatives include the use of electric vehicles and low energy consumption through a considered design approach.

Four Seasons’ new project in Mallorca will become the second Four Seasons offering in Spain following the recent opening of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid in September of 2020.
