Located in the town of Peguera in the island of Mallorca, the resort is the first Secrets Resorts & Spas in Europe and the latest milestone in the ongoing European expansion by AMResorts -- an Apple Leisure Group (ALG) brand. The property is owned by Hesperia Hotels & Resorts, one of Spain’s leading hotel groups.
"With this new resort management deal, we reaffirm our strong commitment to this new market and take another step towards our goal of becoming a key player in the region’s luxury all-inclusive sector," said Javier Aguila, President of ALG’s European Division.
As part of the renovation, the adults-only resort offers guests 162 refreshed rooms and suites with views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Select swim-up suites feature direct access to a new pool. A Preferred Club offers extra amenities.
The resort also feature Secrets ‘Unlimited-Experience’ vacation concept, including reservation-free dining options at four restaurants, five bars and a daily refreshed minibar. Other on-site amenities include a heated outdoor pool overlooking the Mediterranean, a fitness centre and an array of activities and entertainment options.
Secrets Mallorca Villamil Resort & Spa is the 16th hotel for the Secrets Resorts & Spas brand, with properties spread across Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Mexico. ALG and Hesperia Hotels & Resorts also plan to launch Secrets Lanzarote Resort & Spa by the end of the year.
