A 208-room Hilton resort with a 1,500 sq m spa and wellness centre will open on the popular Spanish island in summer 2022 following the renovation of an existing hotel.

Travellers are eagerly awaiting the completion of an exciting conversion project in the Balearic Islands.

A growing presence

Hilton Worldwide has announced plans to open a new property under its flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand after signing a management agreement with Galatzo Inversiones. The 208-key Hilton Mallorca Galatzo joins its impressive pipeline in Spain, where there are currently 23 hotels and nine brands trading or under development.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development in Europe, Middle East and Africa for Hilton, said: “Following recent announcements in Crete, Rijeka, Santorini and Sardinia, Hilton Mallorca Galatzo is the latest in a string of spectacular resort hotels planned in the Mediterranean. As one of the most popular holiday destinations for European travellers, Mallorca is an ideal location for an international brand like Hilton Hotels & Resorts and we are pleased to partner with Galatzo Inversiones to open this hotel next year.”

Carlos Martins, chief executive officer of Galatzo Inversiones, added: “We look forward to welcoming guests to the new Hilton Mallorca Galatzo next year, following substantial refurbishments to elevate the property’s interiors and facilities. With our experience of developing resort hotels in Spain, we are excited to partner with Hilton to introduce this stunning resort to the international market.”
