The luxury super-brand Jumeirah is synonymous with the Middle East, and specifically Dubai. Jumeirah translates from Arabic as ‘Beautiful’ and this is exactly where the Jumeirah story begins. Beautiful hotels, views and memories are the mark of Jumeirah hotels.
Fortunately, and somewhat surprisingly, you don’t have to travel as far as the Middle East to experience the beauty of Jumeirah. Located in the picturesque fishing village of Port Soller in Mallorca, Jumeirah Port Soller is hidden on a clifftop like a private sanctuary.
The sweeping, panoramic views of the island make a welcome start to your stay as you enter the hotel’s resplendent reception area, as does the shot of vitamin C in the form of freshly squeezed Port Soller oranges, served ice cold as you savour the vitamin sea. Champagne on arrival can of course be arranged but we definitely recommend this more authentic, Mallorcean welcome.
The hotel is a delicious cocktail of Jumeriah’s chic style and world-class hospitality, warm Spanish flair and a rich Middle Eastern spa culture. Set against the arresting backdrop of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Tramuntana Mountains are ever present and form an integral part of the hotel’s very foundations. A welcome departure from the high-rise, skyline-dominating hotels of old, Jumeirah Port Soller is laced up the cliff face over nine floors. A testament to intelligent architecture, the hotel’s buildings do not reach above four stories, making every corner of this five-star setting feel open and accessible, like the island itself.
Another signature element of Jumeirah’s success is their invitation that their guests ‘Stay Different’. At Jumeirah Port Soller, you can make every day different. One morning take breakfast al fresco on your balcony, an underrated aspect of a luxury holiday and with such stylish interiors and first-class facilities to enjoy it makes sense to make the most of your own space, whilst other days can begin at Es Fanals Restaurant, located at the highest point in the hotel to maximise the truly awe-inspiring vistas.
On another day you could unwind at the Talise Spa, enjoying a spectrum of treatments inspired by international practices and infused with local ingredients enriched by the island’s natural sunlight. The signature Talise Rituals are specialised to target specific needs and evoke greater relaxation. The “Sunset In Mallorca” ritual is not to be missed and is an ideal way to end your stay at Jumeirah Port Soller.
Your “Stay Different” can also include hiring Vespas and exploring the beautiful port and taking on the Tramuntana Mountains, whilst the local tram takes you through the fragrant lemon groves at a leisurely pace. Meanwhile, back at the hotel, the infinity pool is infinitely inviting.
Finish off your days with an expertly crafted gin and tonic made from Mallorcan gin matched with a speciality tonic at The Sunset Bar. Delicious and refreshing, like this little-known haven of luxury itself.
Jumeirah Port Soller is simply, beautiful.
