FRANKFURT, Germany and PALMA DE MALLORCA, Spain – Romantik Hotels & Restaurants continues its European expansion and has now arrived in Spain. The hotels located on the Balearic island of Mallorca suit the over 200 members of the cooperation perfectly with regard to history, the personal management, the quality and the high standard of food and cellar.
The Romantik Hotel Cases de Son Barbassa is located in the north-eastern part of Mallorca on a large finca, planted with almond, olive and carob trees. Originally a defence structure from the 16th century it combines today rustic and modern elements harmoniously. Thanks to the hillside situation guests enjoy a gorgeous panoramic view of the Cala Mesquida bay. The menu at the restaurant is inspired by the Mediterranean, the products originate from own cultivation or the local market. The home-made olive oil with its intensive aroma plays a central role.
At the heart of the Sierra de Tramontana the Romantik Hotel S’Olivaret is to be found on a 75 hectare estate. A 200 year old oil press, already in 1888 producing oil that caused a sensation at the world exhibition, is at the centre of the finca. The guestrooms are decorated with high-quality antiques and the modern cuisine of the restaurant is based on traditional recipes.
“Especially German-speaking travellers – who are the majority of the Romantik guests – think of Spain as one of their favourite destinations,” Inge Struckmeier, member of the board of directors of Romantik Hotels & Restaurants explains. “Now we took the first step into this market. And we are confident that further will follow. It is our goal to have 15 hotels in the next two to three years.”
