Discover the Gran Hotel Son Net, which was once a 17th-century estate for an aristocratic family from Palma.

Gran Hotel Son Net was constructed during an era marked by global exploration that defined much of the 15th through the 17th centuries.

The idyllic countryside is surrounded by the rugged Serra de Tramuntana Mountains, which are recognized as a magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site. Grand estates were the center of village life, and in 1672, a country mansion was built, which later became home to Gran Hotel Son Net. Legend suggests that the land surrounding Gran Hotel Son Net once belonged to a nobleman who had excelled as a pirate in the 12th century, when Mallorca was feared throughout the region for its marauding corsairs. There has been a house on this site for a thousand years; however, the present building dates back to the 17th century when it served as a country retreat for an aristocratic family from Palma.

Complete with original well and patio, this 17th-century mansion blends beautifully into the mountainous terrain. It wasn’t until 1998 that the peerless Gran Hotel Son Net opened its doors, and the owners maintained an authentic feel of a Mallorcan villa with their extravagant use of natural stone, local Tela de Lenguas fabrics, rugged wood, and handcrafted stucco. Art also forms a focal point of this boutique hotel with a remarkable collection of modern paintings with works by artists such as Marc Chagall, Frank Stella, David Hockney, and others. Restored, renovated, and richly decorated, the legacy of Gran Hotel Son Net is as glorious today as it was in the 17th century. The hotel is now a welcome home for travelers of this historic island, and its unique charm, impeccable service, and grand Mallorcan traditions will continue to draw visitors for generations.
