Virgin Limited Edition, the award-winning collection of luxury hotels and retreats is to re-open the first of its properties at the beginning of July, following the temporary closure across all of its collection, as a result of COVID-19.
The much-loved Son Bunyola Estate, located in the beautiful UNESCO world heritage site of the Tramuntana mountains in Mallorca will be the first property to open across the collection and offers the ideal escape in this current climate, with the option of three individual secluded villas set across a stunning 700-acre private estate.
As Spain eases out of quarantine, Son Bunyola will be the first positive movement for the portfolio as it is set to re-open its doors with a robust set of new measures going above and beyond local government guidelines, to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of future guests.
Jon Brown, Managing Director of Virgin Limited Edition, commented: “We have always remained optimistic that we may be able to open some of our properties at the beginning of July and we are thrilled to be able to announce that Son Bunyola will be the first of our properties to open its doors once again.
“Whilst our properties have been temporarily closed, our teams have been at the forefront of ensuring we are in the best position to welcome back our guests with meticulous new safety and hygiene measures, ensuring they have complete peace of mind and trust in everything we do.
“Guests can expect to see some slight changes across all of our properties as we ask our staff to wear masks, take daily temperature checks and carry out rigorous cleaning measures, whilst ensuring that in our restaurants and guest areas we are adhering to social distancing guidelines. But what’s more important, is that we make these new processes entirely simple and flexible for the guest, depending on their own level of comfort and preferences. Whether that is daily housekeeping with the same member of staff, or no housekeeping at all, we remain completely fluid to how our new processes will work.
“We have always been extremely proud of the incredible experiences we offer across all of our properties and what is more important than ever is that we continue to share the Virgin Limited Edition magic, but in a slightly different way – with our guests’ safety and wellbeing always remaining our number one priority.”
Son Bunyola is located away from the crowds and between the scenic towns of Banyabalfur and Valldemossa with breath-taking scenery and three luxury villas: four-bedroomed Son Balagueret and Sa Terra Rotja, and five-bedroomed Sa Punta de S’Aguila. There is plenty to discover in the mountainous region and guests can enjoy the world-class hiking and cycling trails, a relaxing boat trip along the coastline or simply stay put enjoying the comfort of the villas and soak up the Spanish sunshine.
The villas can be rented on a self-catering or all-inclusive basis making them the perfect choice for groups and families to enjoy in a secluded and beautiful setting this summer. Available to rent individually or take all three villas exclusively, Son Bunyola offers guests the benefit of having both the seclusion and security of a holiday with minimal risk of exposure – without compromising on the typical luxuries and experience guests would expect.
As with all Virgin Limited Edition properties, Son Bunyola’s number one priority remains the safety and wellbeing of its guests. Guests can also relax in the knowledge that there will be new safety and hygiene measures in place and just like before, there will be medically trained staff on hand, should the unlikely need arise and all of our staff will continue to be tested daily to ensure guests can have complete peace of mind.
Rates for the four-bedroomed Son Balaguaret villa, accommodating up to eight adults, start from EUR 16,100 (US$18,283 at today’s current exchange rate) for a seven-night self-catering stay during July and August 2020. Shorter stays of 3, 4 and 5 nights are also available on request (outside of July and August) subject to availability.
