Welcome back to Son Brull

Mallorca’s Son Brull Hotel & Spa is open once more and welcoming guests to back its slice of rural bliss after the necessary closure of hotels since March

Brull is a magnificent countryside hotel and spa. It was originally built as an ‘alqueria’ (an Arabic farmhouse) in the 12th century during Mallorca’s Arab rule, before housing a Jesuit monastery in the 18th century. Today it is run by the Suau family, who have added a distinctly contemporary aesthetic to the property’s unique architectural heritage.

Son Brull has made guest reservations more flexible to accommodate visitors’ needs in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. For new reservations, no deposit is required at the time of booking until seven days before the arrival date. Also, no penalty applies in the case of cancellation. Guests wishing to change the date of their stay can also do so without penalty.

There are a wealth of activities available at Son Brull Hotel & Spa. For example, you could join the Melvici Project, set up by two beekeeping friends who wish to repopulate the bees on Mallorca and are producing local honey with Son Brull. The beekeepers share their wealth of knowledge with guests as they collect honey from the hotel’s very own hives.

If you are after cuisine in the sun, a private BBQ experience in the Son Brull grounds can deliver. Whether it’s a vegan or vegetarian feast, or something to tantalise seafood-lovers and carnivores, Son Brull’s chefs will create a bespoke, private al fresco lunch or dinner sourced and cooked over charcoal to order.

Open throughout the day, hotel guests enjoy complementary use of the spa facilities, which includes a thermal circuit, sauna and steam bath to soothe tired muscles, and morning yoga sessions to rejuvenate both body and mind. There’s also a fully equipped gym and outdoor heated pool. The spa has a couple’s treatment room; so you can enjoy a massage side by side, followed by a glass of chilled cava and fresh strawberries.
