This once 17th century farming estate has been transformed into a luxury country retreat with an abundance of understated style, relaxed atmosphere and great beaches a short drive away. Son Jaumell successfully manages to mix the rustic nature of the buildings history with stylish uncluttered interiors. Neutral tones are interspersed with interesting pieces all hand made by local craftsmen. The artwork, bought or loaned from acclaimed local artists living on the island, adds a splash of colour and interest.
This historical tranquil estate surrounded by oak, almond and carob trees is in a great location in the East of the island. Set in peaceful rural surrounds it is also close to everything: good beaches, towns, restaurants, culture and historical sights. The house is so close to the sea that guests can use a private path to amble down to the virgin beach at pretty Cala Agulla.
The rooms are all very tastefully designed with luxury and comfort in mind. Cleverly mixing the original rustic features with neutral tones the rooms have been created to exude calm luxury. Care has been taken so that there are small details that make a big difference. Even the techiest guests should be satisfied with all the mod cons.
Son Jaumell also prides itself on the gastronomic experience offered to guests, with local and homemade produce featuring high on the menu. With the head chef Andreu Genestra having worked at numerous top Spanish restaurants (including Es Bulli) this is a place for foodie lovers. Breakfast offers an array of local fresh fruits, juices, homemade jams, yogurt and cheese, with an a la carte service offered for those wanting something even more special. Lunch is relaxed, where guests can enjoy tapas and other local dishes. Dinner is the main culinary affair at the hotel, with the kitchen pulling out all the stops to create a special experience.
