Richard Branson’s Next Luxury Hotel Will Be Set In Spain

Sir Richard Branson is scheduled to open the Son Bunyola Hotel, which will be part of the Virgin Limited Edition, which now supervises seven high-end getaways across the world.

The Son Bunyola Hotel is set in the magnificent Serra de Tramuntana mountains of Mallorca and is part of the 810-acre Son Bunyola Estate, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hotel will be built around an existing Finca (traditional agricultural home) dating from the 15th century and will have 28 rooms, two restaurants, outdoor patios, lounges, and a swimming pool.

“The northwest coast of Mallorca has always been a very special place for Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Limited Edition,” Jon Brown, managing director of Virgin Limited Edition, said in a statement. “We are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to restore this beautiful monument and honor its rich history, and look forward to welcoming another small luxury hotel to our portfolio—not least inviting guests across the globe to discover this unspoiled corner of the world.”

Virgin Limited Edition’s first endeavor in Spain will be Son Bunyola Estate. Other getaways for the group include Morocco’s Kasbah Tamadot and the Caribbean’s Moskito and Necker Islands, the latter of which Branson lives. Reservations for the hotel at Son Bunyola Estate will be available later this year.
