The Park Hyatt Mallorca will not reopen as a Hyatt property. That not only marks the loss of Park Hyatt’s only resort in Europe, it marks the loss of one of my favorite hotels.
Park Hyatt Mallorca Will Not Reopen As A Park Hyatt
The hotel remains closed until March 2021, when it will re-open as a Cap Vermell property rather than a Park Hyatt. Already the Park Hyatt Mallorca is part of the Cap Vermell portfolio. It appears that Hyatt chose not to renew its contract, citing poor financial performance. Speaking of the change, Cap Vermell CEO Antoni Mir told the Majorca Daily Bulletin:
“It is bad news for Majorca, mainly because we have lost a worldwide hotel reference. The decision of the American hotel group was motivated by the fact that the Island had lost connectivity during recent winters, which affected Marketing and Management goals. Hyatt’s departure means we lost a trademark, but not the hotel, the resort will now be managed under our Cap Vermell brand, so we can guarantee about 210 jobs in maximum operational activity, of which 85 are fixed.”
My brother and I stayed at the Park Hyatt Mallorca shortly after it was opened in 2016. Upon check-in we were upgraded to a beautiful suite and enjoyed a fabulous weekend at this property both on the hotel grounds and in nearby village.
The food was superb, service wonderful, and it was nice simply to relax in the beautiful surroundings. You can read my full review here.

Mallorca, which feels like a German enclave more than a Spanish island, is so much fun. It’s also a bit annoying, though. The drive from PMI Airport to the hotel was 45-minutes by bus or car, which is certainly doable, but was annoying.
I’m very sorry this property did not work out for Hyatt. It’s a one of the most beautiful Park Hyatt properties I have ever stayed at and the food, service, and amenities were all excellent. Hopefully we will see another Park Hyatt hotel in Spain one day…
