Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced that it will reflag the former Hotel Formentor in Mallorca, Spain.

Ernin Capitol acquired the hotel from Grupo Barceló in February for approximately €100 million ($118.4 million).  The hotel, on the secluded bay of Pollança, was the vision of Argentine art collector and poet Ardan Diehl and has attracted royalty, celebrities, and intellectuals to the idyllic location.

The hotel chain plans an extensive renovation of the property, which originally opened in 1929, before reopening it as a Four Seasons hotel in 2023. The work will be overseen by architects Estudio Lamela and SCT Estudio de Arquitectura, while the guest rooms and public spaces will be designed by the Paris design house of Gilles & Boissier.

When it opens its doors to guests, the former Hotel Formentor will have 110 guest rooms and suites, all of which with balconies that offer sea and forest views.

Guest dining options will include an indoor and a beachfront restaurant, a café, and a poolside bar and grill. The property will also have tennis courts and a spa.

Located one hour away from Palma de Mallorca Airport, the hotel will have three meeting and event spaces, as well as outdoor event space that includes a vineyard.

When it opens, the hotel will become the second Four Seasons property in Spain, after the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid, which opened last year.
