Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury & Lifestyle Collection, has unveiled plans to open its first European resort hotel in Santa Ponsa, Mallorca, later this quarter.

Kimpton Aysla Mallorca will be open year-round and is being designed by local architect Guillermo Reynés to emulate a sanctuary of luxury and wellness.

In line with this, the resort will be home to a luxury Maison Codage Paris spa featuring seven treatment rooms, mud baths, a sauna, a salt cave and an indoor pool. All hotel guests will receive complimentary access to the spa and its facilities.

For those looking to indulge in wellness outside of the spa, the resort will host a selection of programmes including road cycling, morning workouts, guided meditation and yoga lessons.

The design brief for the 79-key property involves creating a relaxing and tranquil environment which reinterprets the concept of resort luxury with a progressive vision where active leisure meets total relaxation.

From the use of neutral tones and natural materials to the inclusion of bright turquoise touches seen through the soft furnishings and textiles, all elements have been chosen to mimic the destination’s island surroundings.

Guest rooms will all feature large floor-to-ceiling windows with private balconies, a rain shower and a separate bathtub.

Additional resort facilities will include two outdoor pools, two restaurants and two bars.

Alejandro Bautista Gómez, general manager of Kimpton Aysla Mallorca, commented: “At Kimpton Aysla Mallorca, we’ve thoughtfully combined touches of local tradition with modern art and culture, establishing an environment that exceeds the needs and desires of today’s traveller to build an unforgettable experience.”

Tom Rowntree, vice president of global luxury brands at IHG, said: “At IHG, we've spent the last few years finessing our Luxury & Lifestyle portfolio to ensure that guests can discover the right brand to suit their voyage.

“We're excited to welcome the Kimpton Aysla Mallorca to the family. This opening officially establishes our resort presence in Europe, welcoming travellers to the island with Kimpton's beloved perks, unexpected touches and heartfelt service."

Guests will be encouraged to come together and connect at Kimpton Aysla Mallorca with events such as an evening social hour, plus one-of-kind bookable workshops with resident artisans on the island, designed to educate guests about local traditions.

Kimpton’s portfolio is set for significant growth in 2022 as it’s on track to open a further seven properties before the end of the year.

The brand is also due to make its debut in Bali this year, with more hotels in the pipeline for Germany, Mexico, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong and the Netherlands in the next three to five years.
