In 2021, Four Seasons announced plans to open a property in Mallorca, Spain. There’s now a major update, as the hotel is expected to open this summer, and is now accepting reservations.

Basics of the Four Seasons Mallorca at Formentor

Four Seasons and Emin Capital (a private equity firm focused on hospitality and real estate) are partnering to open the Four Seasons Mallorca at Formentor. The hotel has opened for public reservations as of May 31, 2024.

For some background on this historic property, it first opened in 1929, and for the past few years, has been undergoing an extensive renovation. The Four Seasons will feature 110 accommodations, 31 of which will be suites. All accommodations will feature balconies with sea and/or forest views, and some suites will even have plunge pools.

The hotel will be located on a 3,000-acre plot of the Formentor Peninsula, offering access to a pristine beach, as well as a functioning vineyard just a short drive away. The hotel will be around an hour from Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI).

As far as amenities go, the property will boast several restaurants and bar (including a beachfront restaurant and cafe, a poolside bar, and grill), a pool, a spa facility, and seaside activities.

This will be Four Seasons’ second property in Spain, after the Four Seasons Madrid, which opened in 2020 (and is spectacular).

Four Seasons Mallorca rates & how to book

What are rates like at the Four Seasons Mallorca? Rates vary wildly seasonally — in the off season, I’m seeing rates as low as $600 per night, while in peak season, I see rates of over $1,500 per night. The hotel also has some promotions, which can add value with your stay.

If you’re going to book this hotel (or any Four Seasons), you absolutely should book through a travel advisor who is affiliated with Four Seasons Preferred Partner. With this program, eligible travel advisors can add value to your stay without it costing you extra. They can add perks like complimentary breakfast (including via in-room dining), a hotel credit, an upgrade subject to availability, and more.

Best of all, Four Seasons Preferred Partner can generally be combined with any rates or promotions you’ll find directly with Four Seasons. For what it’s worth, the upgrades through this program are also prioritized over upgrades through other programs, so you’ll want to use Preferred Partner over a program like Virtuoso or Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts.

Luxury hotel conversions are always cool

It’s always fun to see luxury hotel groups take over existing properties and renovate them — these kinds of properties typically have a lot more charm and a better sense of place than newly built hotels. As much as I like an ultra-modern, cutting-edge luxury hotel, I still prefer a combination of old world charm and modern comforts.

It’s pretty clear that this hotel has undergone a major renovation prior to becoming a Four Seasons, as the old Hotel Formentor was definitely way past its prime prior to closing. For that matter, a three year closure suggests that major work was done.

The hotel seems to have a very special location, since it’s not just your typical Mallorca beach resort, but rather has unique geography.

Also, I’ve long been sad that Four Seasons doesn’t have any properties in Germany (though there is Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, which is “four seasons” in German, hah). I guess a Mallorca property is as close as we’ll get to one in Germany, given that Germans have basically claimed Mallorca as their own. Here’s to hoping that the practice of reserving lounge chairs first thing in the morning doesn’t carry over.

Bottom line

The Four Seasons Mallorca will be opening in August 2024. This is a historic property that’s nearly 100 years old, and it has been undergoing a major renovation for the past few years. I have to imagine this will be Mallorca’s most luxurious property when it opens, and I’m looking forward to seeing it open.

What do you make of the Four Seasons Mallorca?

    Given the nightly rates that the Four Seasons properties charge, I would not expect that many German will consider staying there on their Mallorca vacation.

      100% disagree.
      There is some "old" money in Germany and those who enjoy pleasure and good hospitality, they would stay there for sure, especially since it's such a secluded Resort.
      NOT the average German who would go to Playa de Palma, Antrax or even Palma, but just thinking of the former Hilton on the Island and all the former Arabella properties and now part of Marriott, it was mostly German Guests there, and...

      Service at Four Seasons is still at least 1 level up from e.g. Castello Son Vida or St. Regis Mardavall ;-)
      Looking at the # of lounge chairs by the pool of this property, it reminds me of the new (ugly) Hilton on the Island, trouble is on the way! 100+ rooms but only 60+ lounge chairs by the pool, OMG. poor activity staff.

    They literally demolished the old building and rebuilt it from scrap. So look forward to seeing what it looks like once it reopens.

    Love that comment about Germany. Being german, I have only been to Mallorca twice over 10 years ago as a child. So I cannot fully relate to the hype. I have visited Italy 30 times during that same timeframe, so I guess I just prefer Italy over Spain. Its also dependent on where people are from in Germany, I am from the south and there we are more drawn towards Italy.
