Jumeirah Group Debuts in Europe with the Opening of the 120-room
Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa in Mallorca, Spain

Dubai (UAE) and Puerto de Sóller (Spain), 26 April 2012:
Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, celebrates the opening of its first European resort this week.

Nestled on the bay of Sóller in Mallorca (Spain), Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa is a luxury five-star resort ideal for travellers who want to discover the local traditions, connect with the destination and enjoy an internationally recognised service.

Strategically located in the northwest of the island of Mallorca, Puerto de Sóller is a small fishing village famous for its bay, its port and its location, one of the most charismatic sites in the island: the Orange Valley found in the Sierra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Crowning a cliff overlooking the splendid bay of Sóller, Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa occupies an area of 18,000 square meters, offering 120 rooms and suites, two restaurants, four bars, two swimming pools and Talise Spa.

The resort is divided into 11 low-rise structures respecting the harmony of the landscape and integrating the visitor into the exceptional natural environment. The interiors have been carefully selected in order to create a contemporary and comfortable look. Different shades of beige and earth colours and local woods such as olive and pine, local crafts and vernacular architecture, spacious rooms with large windows overlooking the sea, mountains or harbour make the resort an unparalleled experience.

The gastronomic is supreme with the opening of two restaurants, Es Fanals and Cap Roig, the latter promising to become a culinary must on the island thanks to its creative cuisine with a strong local accent and the use of the freshest seasonal products.

For leisure moments, the hotel boasts three terraces, one of them ideal for watching the sun go down whilst enjoying cocktails and tapas. Young pirates aged 3 to 12 will appreciate the Barbaroja Kids Club, while teenagers and adults will enjoy the guided tours, cooking classes and yoga sessions on offer.

The prime location of Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa will offer nature lovers the chance to explore by foot or on mountain bikes almost 200 kilometres of tracks that run along the coast or golf at any of the 26 courses on the island. There is the opportunity to go diving, snorkelling and fishing; the hotel can also arrange boat rentals with experienced skippers who will guide guests to secluded beach coves.

Talise is Jumeirah’s global spa brand. Talise Spa at Jumeirah Port Soller occupies over 2,200 square meters and offers magnificent views over the Port of Sóller and the Sierra de Tramuntana. It features ten treatment suites and a thermal area equipped with a Hammam, an ice room, a glass-panelled sauna overlooking the valley, a relaxation room with fireplace and an outdoor heated Hydropool.

Designed to set a new standard in the Spanish wellness sector, Talise Spa offers a complete programme of treatments that combine the latest cosmetic innovations from prestigious brands like Barcelona-based Natura Bissé, Aromatherapy Essentials, Linda Meredith and Bastién Gonzalez.

Guests at Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa will stimulate all five senses, with a daily selection of local seasonal fruits in every room, a fragrance chart to scent the room to the guests’ taste, welcome hand massages, or orange aromas in the lobby to recreate the characteristic smell of citrus of the Sóller Valley. These small details will contribute to a cultural and social connection with the destination.

Jumeirah Port Soller is the latest addition to the Jumeirah portfolio of luxury hotels and resorts in Europe, along with Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto in Rome, Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah in Istanbul and Grosvenor House Apartments by Jumeirah Living in London. From the start of 2011 to the end of 2012, Jumeirah Group will have more than doubled the number of hotels it manages and almost quadrupled the number of countries in which it operates. In the coming six months, Jumeirah expects to open Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel in Baku, Azerbaijan; Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel and Spa, Kuwait; and Jumeirah Creekside in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
