Why Stay At Gran Hotel Son Net
This 1672 villa in Spain's pine-covered Sierra de Tramuntana mountains offers a serene alternative to Majorca's party scene, just 25 minutes away.
It's hard to isolate one thing that makes this grand pink palace amid the pines and palms of Majorca's majestic mountains so alluring. Is it the early morning café con leche served on a stone terrace overlooking the Mediterranean? The late afternoon ambles through its hydrangea-lined pathways? The chirps of sparrows and magpies that pierce the quiet mountain air, in contrast to the raucous crowd on Magaluf beach, 15 miles away? Whatever it may be, Gran Hotel Son Net is one of the island's hidden gems: 31 simple, country house-style suites, all outfitted with hand-carved beds and local tela de lenguas fabrics and drenched in the warm Majorcan sunlight. During summer days, guests escape the heat with dips in the 100-foot swimming pool, while in cooler months they spend afternoons trekking the surrounding UNESCO-protected Tramuntana mountain range. And while tranquility may be the hotel's trump card, the hotel will provide car service to nearby Palma de Mallorca for a taste of life in the island's bustling capital.
Despite its traditional sensibility, the hotel has an impressive collection of original contemporary art on display, including works by Warhol, Chagall, and Christo.
Recently, the hotel began growing its own grapes and now harvests a range of varietals. Sample a fresh and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. Gran Hotel Son Net is also located just a short walk from some of the Balearic Islands' finest wineries, including Bodega Son Puig, and can organize tastings.
