Gran Hotel Son Net: luxurious romantic country hotel and restaurant in Mallorca

The Gran Hotel Son Net is one of the most atmospheric places to stay in Mallorca because it is set on a remote hillside overlooking the village of Puigpunyent and commands a stunning view of the stunning Tramuntana mountain range. The hotel is located in an old finca (country manor) that dates back to 1672 and has been carefully restored so that the buildings include local materials (stone, wood and tiles) and the house continues to feel like an authentic Mallorcan villa. High vaulted ceilings, wooden banisters and iron balustrades give the hotel a dreamy air. Don’t forget to check out the remarkable art work in the hotel: they have original works by artists such as Marc Chagall, Frank Stella, David Hockney, Andy Warhol and others.

The hotel has large, airy rooms and suites, all of which are air conditioned and come with free Internet access. The villas have their own private jacuzzi but they do share a swimming pool. The Zen Zone Beauty Centre offer spa and beauty treatments; it has an outdoor jacuzzi and gym. They also arrange private Pilates and yoga sessions.

If you love to swim, you’ll probably spend a lot of time around their magnificent outdoor swimming pool which is 30 metres long and overlooks the village of Puigpunyent and the mountains. Gran Hotel Son Net is not close to the sea, so it appeals to people who do not like spending their holiday roasting on a hot sandy beach. Instead it attracts those who want to slow down, get away from the busyness of the world, and curl up with a book or hike along the remote trails of the Tramuntana range.

The centrepiece of the hotel is the Oleum Restaurant, set in an ancient olive press with thick stone walls and wooden beams. The restaurant serves exquisite dishes that take a modern twist on traditional Mallorcan cuisine. Lunch and dinner outdoors is a delightful experience because you sit in an immaculately landscaped garden with views of the mountains. Because of the romantic setting, the hotel is a great place for weddings and honeymoons.

Room rates vary according to the season. They can be as low as €135 per night (low season, advance purchase) to over €300 per night in August (high season).
