Sir Richard Branson added one more venture to his already impressive portfolio of privately owned collection of award-winning luxury hotels and retreats with the newly opened villas Sa Punta De S’Aguila and Sa Terra Rotja, situated on the Son Bunyola Estate. At the heart of the Son Bunyola estate is a historic Finca building dating back to the 1800’s surrounded by vines, citrus fruit trees, almond and olive trees.
The estate, with its own gated entrance, is over 700 acres and is located in between Esporles and Banyalbufar on the Northwest coast of Mallorca. The area is dominated by the Tramuntana mountain range with its breath-taking scenery, and is home to some of the most historical and picturesque towns on the island. Sa Punta de S’Aguila translates as ‘Eagle’s Point’. This five bedroom villa is built in traditional Mallorcan style, with exposed beam ceilings and terracotta tiled floors.
Offering total privacy, the villa has been sympathetically built into the landscape and boasts panoramic sea and mountain views. Sa Punta de S’Aguila has its own heated swimming pool, kitchen, living room and dining area. This villa comfortably sleeps 10 adults in 5 en-suite bedrooms. Rates start from EUR 21, 825 (at today’s exchange rate £18,210) for a 7 night stay.
Sa Terra Rotja translates as ‘red earth’ from the local Mallorquí language, and this private four-bedroom villa is situated near the edge of the estate and a short walk from a pebble beach.
Sa Terra Rotja also has its own heated swimming pool and plenty of space on the terrace for sunbathing, outdoor dining and watching the sun set over this exclusive and beautiful corner of the island. This villa comfortably sleeps 8 adults in 4 en-suite bedrooms. Rates start from EUR 17,460 (at today’s exchange rate £14,567) for a 7 night stay.
