Tucked away in the quiet village of Puigpunyent, hidden behind tall palm trees and surrounded by the majestic Tramuntana mountains lies the beautiful rural hotel Son Net.
Once a private mansion, it opened as a luxury hotel in 1998 and remains a top destination to this day.

Since its opening it has won prestigious awards and welcomed VIP guests such as the King and Queen of Spain, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Heidi Klum and Stella McCartney.
And it's not surprising why this galaxy of stars has chosen the Grand Hotel as their base.
It not only boasts a five-star luxury and unsurpassed hospitality, but also the true feel of a Majorcan home. It comprises 31 bedrooms with seven suites and 24 double rooms, starting at 205€ per night.
All rooms are tastefully furnished in a classic Majorcan style, with beautiful views.
And a variety of fun and relaxing options are at hand, including a gym, bar, and a spectacular 30 metre swimming pool surrounded by private cabins and the magnificent beauty salon "La Fuente".
Jeanne Lurie, the Beauty and Wellness Manager at Son Net, offers a comprehensive range of treatments including personalised yoga classes, massages, facials and hair treatments. Massages can be enjoyed inside the hotel or in the fresh air by the pool.
Although you might never want to leave, Gran Hotel Son Net is only a short drive to the capital Palma, with a wide range of activities and services available.
A must-see is the cathedral, the crowning architectural jewel of the island. Besides being one of the most magnificent Gothic cathedrals in Europe, its interior displays the entire history of Mallorcan art, from the altarpieces to the famous gold detailing.
Another tourist stop not to be missed is the bustling Olivar Market in the city centre.
A feast for the eyes, it has dazzling displays of flowers, huge piles of oranges, buckets full of olives and fish you never knew existed.
Here you can find deliciously fresh fruit and vegetables and plenty of delicatessen stalls offering hams, meats, cheese and olives, along with the traditional Majorcan sausage, sobrasada.
After a wander around the picturesque city of Palma, what better way to relax than a massage by the pool and a glass of wine with views to die for.
