Set high above Port Soller overlooking the picturesque fishing village, on the edge of the Serra de Tramuntana in Mallorca, Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa is a breath-taking sanctuary in which to enjoy Jumeirah’s renowned hospitality and lose yourself in the land of romance and vitality. Offering panoramic views over the azure Mediterranean waters, its elegant rooms and suites, featuring works by revered local artist Toni Garau, offer the perfect setting in which to enjoy exceptional comfort and Jumeirah’s service beyond expectations.

Stylish and tranquil, the hotel’s accommodation offers generous space and ample opportunity to enjoy an insta-worthy Mallorcan sunrise.

In line with Jumeirah’s commitment to offering extraordinary culinary experiences, Jumeirah Port Soller & Spa is home to a collection of exceptional restaurants and lounges. These include Cap Roig Brasserie, that has been transformed into a Marisqueria featuring locally inspired seafood dishes served on an open-air terrace overlooking the hotel’s show-stopping views, while the Sunset Lounge serves Asian inspired delicacies against the backdrop of the majestic Tramuntana mountains.

The perfect setting to relax, rejuvenate and switch off from daily life, guests can discover the benefits of wellness with an array of yoga and exercise classes as well as treatments at the hotel’s award-winning Talise Spa using all-natural products from leading skincare brand Sodashi. These include the Crystalus Body Massage, the Samadara Age-defying and Brightening Marine Facial and Pure Radiance Facial.

One such treatment is a five-day detox programme designed to break down accumulated toxins and aid the treatment of cellulite and fluid retention.


There is also the state-of-the-art Rafa Nadal Academy in Mallorca, where guests can channel their inner tennis champion and learn from the professionals. Tennis enthusiasts will also enjoy the Academy’s exhibition that charts the champion’s career and showcases his trophies, racquets and other memorabilia.

Jumeirah Port Soller & Spa was recently named The Best Resort in Spain from the internationally recognised Condé Nast Traveler Gold Awards for 2021, and won the Best Sustainability and Hotel Rehabilitation Projects Executed by Habitat Futura Group and TSMEDIA, recognising the hotel’s role in preserving the cultural heritage of the destination. As part of its array of enriching guest activities, the hotel will offer a series of engaging outdoor workshops in which local artisans will bring crafts such as ceramics, basketry, dance and art to life, sharing techniques that have been passed down through the generations.

Cementing Jumeirah Group’s position as a luxury hospitality leader in Spain, the hotel’s extensive offerings and experiences have earned it several prestigious awards over the past years, including the title of Europe’s Leading Hotel & Spa, Spain’s Leading Hotel and Spain’s Leading Hotel Suite: The Mar Blau Villa, at the World Travel Awards 2021. It was also recognised at the 2020 British Airways Holidays Awards, securing a rating of over nine points, and in 2019, was a Silver Badge winner, placing #24 in the Mallorca destination category at the U.S. News & World Report Best Hotel Rankings.

Beyond the walls of the hotel, guests can explore Serra de Tramuntana, the impressive mountain range that was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2011, or take a day trip to Palma to discover the local history via its Roman ruins and sand-coloured churches. Alternatively, guests can take a stroll through the cobbled streets, stopping off at Palma’s upscale boutiques to check out the season’s must-have collections or pick up souvenirs from local markets for lasting memories of their trip.

Four Seasons Hotel Milano Gets Revamped By Patricia Urquiola

After a six-month renovation, Four Seasons Hotel Milano has reopened in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, unveiling contemporary interiors conceived by designer and architect Patricia Urquiola.

Four Seasons Hotel Milano Gets Revamped By Patricia Urquiola MIL 530 original

A 15th-century convent turned sophisticated garden retreat, Four Seasons Hotel Milano is a haven in the centre of Milan’s Fashion District. Fall asleep under frescoes in high-ceilinged rooms, dine on authentic Italian dishes on the airy veranda and recover from a day of shopping and sightseeing with a massage in our sleek, modern Spa.

In the lobby, guests can expect a new, lighter paint job, bronze inserts and mirrors—all intended to “interplay with the original frescoes and period features of the former convent.” There’s also a variety of new hanging lamps, table lamps and floor lighting. Furniture classics from Italian design brands decorate the areas.

Through the lobby, guests reach Zelo, the new restaurant helmed by Executive Chef Fabrizio Borraccino. During the day, the restaurant changes its identity to Zelo Bistrot, and the expanded outdoor area allows for seating both inside and out. Zelo Bistrot offers a menu of light dishes, while in the evening, Zelo proposes both an à la carte menu as well as a tasting menu of the chef’s creations. The menu, Four Seasons says, has been completely redone to reflect guests’ evolving tastes and Chef Borraccino’s focus on Italian cuisine and the best local producers.

Stilla, the new bar is positioned to the left of the lobby. The circular bar is appointed with cognac leather armchairs and velvet seating and sofas in shades of red and dark green. Guests can also sit outside in the hotel’s garden. The new menu created by Bar Manager Luca Angeli offers innovative new signature drinks and has a focus on ice craftsmanship. The menu has everything from Aeropress American coffee to a classic club sandwich to Negroni Sbagliato. Health-conscious guests can look forward to light plates and salads.

Lujo modernista de mediados de siglo en este nuevo hotel de Ibiza

Lujo modernista de mediados de siglo en este nuevo hotel de Ibiza

Con su próxima apertura la temporada de verano 2021, el Hotel Riomar Ibiza, miembro del grupo Marriott dentro de su colección de hoteles independientes Tribute Portfolio, se ha transformado en un destino de lifestyle centrado en el equilibrio entre bienestar, turismo eco-friendly, gastronomía y el ya conocido estilo de vida isleño.

El hotel, que pasa de 2 a 4 estrellas superior, dispone de 116 habitaciones incluyendo 4 suites completamente renovadas y de estética minimalista y contemporánea. Un esquema mono-tono se intercala con acentos de rojos tierra quemada, inspirados en la tierra rica en hierro de la isla de Ibiza. La mitad de dichas habitaciones tienen vistas a la bahía de Santa Eulalia, con vistas despejadas al mar Mediterráneo, mientras que las otras habitaciones ofrecen vistas al patrimonio rural de Ibiza, incluido el histórico Puig de Missa, que data del siglo XVI. En la zona de entrada, los huéspedes son recibidos en el Ocean Brasserie & Bar, que ocupa el salón principal del lobby.

Aquí, todo un ventanal de cristal se abre a una terraza cubierta para una cena informal con vistas a la playa. La terraza de la piscina cuenta con tumbonas y “cabañas” de diseño personalizado mirando a nuestro “Secret Garden”. Un refugio verde para siestas aisladas con un escenario central preparado para noches de música en acústico, nuestras “Sunset Sessions”. Tanto el jardín secreto como el restaurante contarán con grandes marcas tanto en su gestión como en su ejecución para ofrecer así tanto a huéspedes como a locales, el mejor equilibrio entre tradición gastronómica y vanguardia culinaria.

Con los orígenes del hotel en mente como uno de los primeros hoteles en Santa Eulalia, originalmente inaugurado en 1968 y sentando un precedente para el boom turístico de Ibiza, el nuevo diseño adopta las características inherentes del Modernismo de mediados del siglo XX. Líneas sencillas, balcones empotrados e interiores en capas.

El gusto por la nostalgia y las cualidades de la atemporalidad fueron los principios fundamentales del equipo de diseño. Los colgantes Louis Poulsen PH5 cuelgan sobre las cabinas de recepción de diseño personalizado, el Togo de Michel Ducaroy para Ligne Roset se ubica junto a asientos de diseño personalizado acompañados de mesas auxiliares Woud, alfombras de yute a medida de Naturtex, trabajos de arcilla hechos a mano por Atelier Vierkant y un mural de azulejo pintado a mano de 6 metros de ancho corona la pared del lobby

“La importancia del Hotel Riomar es que es anterior a la mayor parte de la ciudad que lo rodea. Santa Eulalia es muy consciente del desarrollo, por lo que a la hora de comenzar el proyecto había que tener en cuenta lo que teníamos y lo que podíamos hacer con la propiedad. Nuestra ambición es fasear el proyecto durante varias temporadas, revelando lentamente nuestra visión general de la experiencia que el hotel debe ofrecer”. – Sichi Bon, director creativo del proyecto.

El rebranding del hotel evoca también su pasado cercano al minimalismo. El hotel pondrá en marcha un canal de comunicación, titulado The Modernist, una guía de la isla con una perspectiva global, donde trataremos de compartir y esporar todo el contenido de lo que pase en el hotel y sus alrededores.

“Queremos crear un espacio con espíritu y de conexión con la gente, el Hotel Riomar Ibiza está pensado para compartir, disfrutar y conectar a los clientes con la comunidad de la isla” – Alejandro Cainzos, director de Marketing.

“El hotel será un espacio para socilizar, conocerse y disfrutar. Es un hotel que tiene como referente la naturalidad y elegancia de los veranos en las costas mediterráneas de los 50 y 60’s. – Marco Schiralli, director del Hotel Riomar Ibiza.

Los detalles son clave en la marca, Tribute Portfolio. Cada punto de contacto con el hotel se ha tenido en cuenta, desde los amenities personalizados a los materiales corporativos. Esta búsqueda de la calidad también es evidente gracias a un servicio honesto y sincero y detalles que incluyen una cuidada selección de lecturas, una biblioteca de vinilos. Incluso la posibilidad de reservar un tocadiscos portátil para que los huéspedes disfruten de la música en sus habitaciones.

El Hotel Riomar Ibiza abre sus puertas a partir del verano de 2021 como miembro del grupo Marriott dentro de su colección de Tribute Portfolio Hotels. Los beneficios para miembros de Marriott Bonvoy incluyen contactless check-in, mobile key y puntos de fidelización en F&B.

El hotel forma parte del desarrollo de la bahía de Santa Eulalia, que incluye W Ibiza y su Chiringuito Blue, la cocina sana del Ve Café y el elegante restaurante La Llama. Dentro de este desarrollo en la bahía incluyen Apartamentos Marsol con 16 apartamentos de lujo relajado y el restaurante Pecador del chef catalán Nandu Jubany, galardonado con una estrella Michelin.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.

NOW OPEN: FOUR SEASONS HOTEL BANGKOK AT CHAO PHRAYA RIVER WELCOMES GUESTS TO AN URBAN OASIS IN THE HEART OF THE CITY

Four Seasons returns to Thailand’s capital with an all-new riverside sanctuary designed by Jean-Michel Gathy, featuring a collection of signature dining and bar experiences, an urban wellness centre, light-filled event spaces and expansive outdoor courtyards and terraces

Rising above the majestic Chao Phraya River in the heart of Bangkok’s Creative District is an enclave of tiered buildings, connected at ground level by a series of indoor and outdoor spaces, quiet courtyards and lively restaurants. Art-filled spaces, sophisticated lounges and lush tropical greenery are surrounded by the gentle sounds of water features and inviting open-air terraces.  Welcome to the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.

“The much-anticipated return of Four Seasons to Thailand’s capital is nothing short of spectacular,” says Christian Clerc, Four Seasons President, Global Operations. “Guests will be in awe of the exquisite design, the world-class restaurant and bar options, and a state-of-the-art wellness centre. As always, the unparalleled, intuitive service from Four Seasons people will be at the centre of it all. Thanks to our visionary owner-partners at Country Holdings Group Public Company Limited, this magnificent Hotel combines everything that one has come to expect of Four Seasons in Thailand and around the world.”

Located along 200 metres (650 feet) of open riverfront just 40 minutes from Suvarnabhumi International Airport along the famed Charoenkrung Road, the fourth location in the Four Seasons Thailand Collection offers myriad opportunities for locals and international travellers to make connections with each other and the exciting city that surrounds it.  Features include a 299-room hotel, destination restaurants and lounges, stunning event spaces, and an urban wellness centre like no other.  The complex also includes 366 Four Seasons Private Residences, opening in 2021.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is located within buildings design consulted by Hamiltons International architects.  In describing his vision for the interiors of Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok, lead designer Jean-Michel Gathy of DENNISTON said: “Sometimes dramatic. Sometimes intimate. But always charismatic.” High ceilings and glass walls provide breathing space, while pools and flowing water echo the constant movement of the Chao Phraya River.  Thailand’s natural beauty and the city’s urbane charms come together in every aspect of the interiors, punctuated by an art collection amassed by Gathy himself.  Celebrating the country’s legendary craftsmanship and artistry, a dedicated ART Space in partnership with MOCA Bangkok running from lobby through to the river itself showcases contemporary Thai artists in changing exhibitions.

Bangkok’s Creative District

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is in the heart of the city’s most remarkable community.  Along the historic Charoenkrung Road and in myriad small streets and alleyways, the area is undergoing a renaissance as street food vendors are joined by food-forward restaurants, traditional crafts are side by side with bold contemporary art, and tiny stalls selling handcrafted wares sit next to eclectic shops filled with designer goods.

Along Chao Phraya River, Four Seasons guests can head to ICONSIAM, the city’s newest premium shopping mall, with direct access from the Hotel’s river dock.  Or, take a water taxi to wander the river’s canals, floating kitchens, ancient temples and charming fishing piers.

José Antonio Fernández Gallar, OHL’s Second Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, comments, “OHL is proud to have such a prestigious partner as Four Seasons for our project. We are convinced that its presence will be key in the positioning of Centro Canalejas Madrid as the new icon of luxury in our country, and in the consolidation of Madrid as a reference destination for international shopping tourism, at the same level as large European capitals.”

Mark Scheinberg, Founder of Mohari Hospitality, which is half owner of the property with OHL since 2017, added, “We’re really proud to have partnered with Four Seasons and OHL to develop and open this flagship luxury destination in Madrid, and the first Four Seasons in Spain. Despite the challenging circumstances, we’re sure that Centro Canalejas, and its seven beautifully reconceptualised historic buildings, will swiftly become a new social centre for the City of Madrid and a second home for local and global visitors alike.”

Leading a team of 254 staff is Regional Vice President and General Manager Adrian Messerli, a Swiss born and educated Four Seasons veteran whose most recent assignment was in Shanghai.

“We are excited to welcome our first guests to the first Four Seasons in Spain,” says Messerli. “In addition to our dedication to providing guests with a memorable experience, our staff are all fully trained and implementing Lead With Care, Four Seasons enhanced global health and safety program. Grounded in healthcare expertise, the program provides the latest information and best practices that will help us keep our guests, residents and employees safe and well.”
