Branson, known for his exciting entrepreneurial ventures into airlines, hotels and other recreational pursuits, has recently opened a stunning boutique hotel in one of his favourite places.  

Richard Branson’s new 26-room luxury hotel is located on the Balearic island of Mallorca. 


Son Bunyola was not just an investment project but a labour of love for the iconic entrepreneur.

Located less than 20 minutes from Valldemossa, one of Mallorca’s main attractions due to its Royal Carthusian Monastery, is Branson’s new hotel property.

Like others he owns, including the luxury Ulusaba Lodge in the Sabi Sands, Branson has created a masterpiece in Mallorca.

Son Bunyola estate is set on 1 300 acres of largely abandoned land which can be accessed mainly by sea.

Branson bought the property several years back but struggled for over ten years to get planning approval to turn the property’s farmhouse into a hotel.

According to DailyMail, the celebrity entrepreneur eventually sold the property due to a need for cash, as well as not being able to fulfill his ambitions with Son Bunyola.

As fate would have it, the iconic entrepreneur was presented with an opportunity to rebuy Son Bunyola a few years later, when building regulations had eased.

This meant Branson would be able to carry out his plans for a luxury property.      


Now 20 years later, the fruits of Branson’s labour are finally here for all to see.

The restored 16th-century finca (farmhouse), which sits on a UNESCO world heritage site, is utterly impressive.

The exclusive 26-room hotel, perched on a ridge, with the most spectacular views is likely to become one of the world’s premier resorts.


The blend of colours (pink, green and powder blues), exquisite textiles, vibrant cushions and pretty parasols lend a feeling of being in the Mediterranean while there are also subtle hints of a Moroccan style throughout the property.

Most guest rooms are built around a courtyard, which has a circular tower in one corner and a medieval tower in the other corner.  

The grand outdoor pool stretches the length of the building. Sun beds flank the idyllic swimming pool with endless views of the sea. (Alprazolam)
