Hotel description

Though this grand hilltop manor house dates back to 1672, it has only been a hotel since 1998 — a fact that will not surprise anyone who has stayed here. The feeling is less like a hotel stay and more like a visit to a friend's country estate; though obviously this friend has near-unlimited resources, and impeccable taste in art.

The house was completely rebuilt in the process of converting it into a hotel, but mercifully it was not decorated in the prevailing chic hotel style. These interiors are classic Mallorcan, and the arched doorways, timber beams, and canopy beds add to the hotel's authenticity. The rooms are enormous, with stone floors (heated in the bathrooms) and such luxe hotel necessities as satellite television and air conditioning. Public spaces are no less elegant, and are decorated with artworks from the owner's collection, including pieces by Hockney and Stella, and even a Chagall and a lesser-known Dali painting.

Other reminders that this is in fact a full-featured hotel include the spa and beauty salon and the enormous swimming pool, a full 30 meters long, complete with outdoor cabanas and views of Puigpunyent village and the mountains all around. The restaurant's menu is traditional Mediterranean, rather than flashy new Spanish cuisine, and, quaintly, centers around the island's largest olive press, perhaps as a reminder to stay true to the hotel's Mallorcan roots.

The village of Puigpunyent is charming and historically rich, perhaps worth a stroll down the hill, and Palma, the capital of the Balearics, is just twenty minutes away. A number of shining white sand beaches are just as nearby, and five golf courses are easily accessible — but odds are, most guests will prefer to hole up at Son Net for as long as possible, as this is the kind of place you just soak in.
