May 02, 2012, 4:39 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, has celebrated the opening of its first European resort.
Nestled on the bay of Sóller in Mallorca, Spain, Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa is the latest addition to Jumeirah's portfolio of luxury spa hotels and the five-star resort is ideal for travellers who want to discover the local traditions, connect with the destination and enjoy an internationally recognised service.
Strategically located in the northwest of the island of Mallorca, Puerto de Sóller is a small fishing village famous for its bay, its port and its location, one of the most charismatic sites in the island: the Orange Valley found in the Sierra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
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 of the hotel in Mallorca 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.
Two new restaurants have also been opened, Es Fanals and Cap Roig, with 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.
The luxurious hotel boasts three terraces, one of them ideal for watching the sun go down whilst enjoying cocktails and tapas. Young pirates aged 3 to 12 will appreciate the Barbaroja Kids Club, while teenagers and adults will enjoy the guided tours, cooking classes and yoga sessions on offer.
Almost 200 kilometres of tracks run along the coast which can be explored by bike or by foot and the island features 26 golf courses. There is the opportunity to go diving, snorkelling and fishing and the hotel can also arrange boat rentals with experienced skippers who will guide guests to secluded beach coves, ideal for travellers looking to experience Jumeirah beach holidays.
Talise Spa at Jumeirah Port Soller occupies over 2,200 square meters and offers magnificent views over the Port of Sóller and the Sierra de Tramuntana. It features ten treatment suites and a thermal area equipped with a Hammam, an ice room, a glass-panelled sauna overlooking the valley, a relaxation room with fireplace and an outdoor heated Hydropool.
Talise Spa offers a complete programme of treatments that combine the latest cosmetic innovations from prestigious brands like Barcelona-based Natura Bissé, Aromatherapy Associates, Linda Meredith and Bastién Gonzalez.
