Mallorca to welcome Son Net in Spring 2023


The team behind southern Spanish bolthole Finca Cortesin have revealed plans to open Son Net in Mallorca in early Spring 2023.

Just a 15-minute drive from Palma in the foothills of the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana Mountains, the 31-suite property occupies a private Majorcan estate dating back to 1672, which has been restored with respect to its heritage.

Over centuries, the manor house was passed down through the hands of several prominent Spanish families and became one of the most prestigious residential estates on the island. Upon reopening, the transformed retreat will juxtapose elegant, palatial architecture with tasteful interiors, citrus orchards and lush Mediterranean gardens. Many of the mansion’s original features will be preserved, from rustic beams, stone floors and archways to carved wooden ceilings, antique fireplaces, an original 17th century interior courtyard and spring-fed well, and private family chapel. There will also be a curated private art collection.

Elsewhere across the 57,000m² estate, multiple pools will be flanked by private shaded cabanas, encircled by tended lawns and flowerbeds that give way to an ecological vegetable and herb garden, small farm and private vineyard. Food will all be locally sourced, with native orange and lemon trees growing on the bucolic estate, fresh seafood procured directly from the island, and fresh olive oil tastings from a century-old olive press. The vineyard will produce Malvasia white wine that supplies the large, open wine cellar.

“It is an honour to be able to revive Son Net, that I have long admired as a beautiful and historic estate on the island,” says Javier Lopez Granados, President and CEO of Single Home and Finca Cortesin. “Following the success of Finca Cortesin, we felt that a second property was the natural next step for the brand, and we are excited to bring the spirit of what we have created in Andalusia to Mallorca, while offering something fresh for the destination, next spring.”

David Stein of The Stein Group, comments: “Having worked with Javier Lopez Granados, consulting on Finca Cortesin before its opening and helping to create the hotel’s original concept, I am thrilled to be continuing this special relationship with the Finca Cortesin family to help breathe new life into Son Net; special property that is very dear to my heart – and to Mallorca.”

René Zimmer, Managing Director of Finca Cortesin Hotels & Resorts, adds: “I know Mallorca extremely well, and Son Net was always a personal, firm favourite hotel on the island.  Son Net in fact inspired much of Finca Cortesin in its early years, and it therefore feels very special to recreate – with its own quintessentially Majorcan flair, of course – the essence of Finca Cortesin in Mallorca, and what makes it so unique.  I feel confident that the soul of Finca Cortesin is a perfect fit for this island, and the renewed Son Net will exemplify this.”
