Opening for Easter 2014, Hotel Son Ametler offers a luxurious and tranquil holiday experience at the base of Majorca’s Tramuntana Mountains. Recently restored for deluxe farm stays, it’s an elegant and friendly hotel on 25,000 square metres of private guest space and just 35 minutes from Palma Airport.Hotel Son Ametler is the second deluxe “Agroturismo” retreat of British / Italian couple James Hiscock and Paola Cassini. Their first rural retreat, Finca Es Castell, was recently voted Majorca’s best hotel by ReviewPro’s Global Index and it consistently ranks as a favourite hotel in Majorca on TripAdvisor.com .
Nestled in private almond and olive orchards, Hotel Son Ametler perfectly blends rustic relaxation with attentive luxury. In the eight renovated double rooms, comforts include jacuzzi baths, Italian stucco bathrooms, air-conditioning and walk-in power showers. Organic toiletries, velvety towels and memory foam beds make relaxing a breeze. Guests can connect to free high-speed wifi, or switch off and relax.
Hotelier James Hiscock says, “We are extremely proud to present Son Ametler. It’s a hidden Majorcan gem. Our guests can relax, eat, drink, explore and recharge, in a converted 18th century farmhouse, where the only sounds are cicadas and sheep bells. This is a boutique style hotel without the boutique attitude”. Bookings for short and long stays during summer 2014 have commenced. Whilst the area is popular for rural stays, beaches like Pollenca and Alducia are only 20 and Palma just 35 minutes away.
The property’s farm provides ingredients for tasty and fresh local dishes. With a top-notch breakfast buffet, light lunches and ‘a la carte’ dinners, Son Ametler brings an authentic flavour to hotel cuisine. A full-service night bar awaits and daytime sippers will love the relaxed “country house” honesty bar atmosphere. A huge swimming pool and private terrace overlook mountains and fields in full privacy.
With ongoing economic challenges impacting Spanish tourism, rural hideaways like this continue to be popular with British guests. The creation of Hotel Son Ametler is a boutique expansion by their Owners. “Living here’s a dream. Spain’s economy has huge potential. With the success of Finca Es Castell and our loyal guests, we’re confident that Son Ametler will also impress”, says James Hiscock.
