GROWING TOURISM ON THE POPULAR MEDITERRANEAN ISLAND
Tourism is thriving on Mallorca despite a recently decided special tax for tourists. Four new top hotels are currently in the pipeline on the Spanish holiday island. This data has been revealed by TOPHOTELPROJECTS, the worldwide leading provider of global b2b hotel data.
Pure Salt is a new luxury hotel brand for adults only on Mallorca. With the five-star Pure Salt Garonda, the Mallorcan hotelier family Amengual has inaugurated its first property at the Playa de Palma in the past year. Currently they are preparing the opening of their second hotel, the Pure Salt Adriano in Calvia (93 rooms) which will open after a refurbishment end of March.
Recently the Portals Hills Boutique Hotel opened its doors above the same named marina on Mallorca (29 suites and two penthouses). Further three high-class hotels are under construction, one of which is a Park Hyatt Hotel with 142 rooms.
Mallorca has been trying for years to force back the muck tourism on the beaches near the capital Palma and north of the island. However, entertainment areas, such as the “Ballermann” continue to be very popular. Only the consumption of alcohol has been curbed on the beaches. According to recent test reports, there is also still need for action in terms of the hygiene and waste prevention.
