The new 120-bedroom Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel and Spa on the island of Mallorca, Spain, has become the United Arab Emirates-based operator's first resort to open in Europe.
Located on the north-east coast of the island, the property overlooks the bay of Sóller and is divided into 11 low-rise structures to complement the surrounding natural environment.
Facilities at the new resort include the Talise Spa spanning more than 2,200sq m (23,681sq ft), which incorporates 10 treatment rooms and a thermal area containing a hammam.
An ice room; a glass-panelled sauna overlooking the valley and a relaxation room with a fire feature also form part of the spa, along with an outdoor heated hydropool.
Treatments are inspired by ingredients such as olive oil and citrus fruits. Products suppliers include Natura Bissé; Aromatherapy Associates; Linda Meredith; and Bastién Gonzalez.
A Jumeirah spokesperson said: "Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel and Spa is a luxury resort ideal for travellers who want to discover the local traditions, connect with the destination and enjoy an internationally recognised service."
