GRAN SON NET HOTEL
LEGEND HAS IT………..that in the 17th century a valiant pirate turned knight was rewarded by his king with a prestigious estate that extended from the mountains just outside of Palma to the other side of the island on Mallorca’s North Coast. The knight, Don Francisco de Net, searched for the finest location within his estate upon which to build his family mansion. He chose a site on the crest of a hill overlooking the tranquil village of Puigpunyent. The village located in a hidden valley surrounded by the majestic Tramuntana mountains thrived while serving the large Net estate.
Three centuries later, the old family mansion has been restored and became the Gran Hotel Son Net. The estate has been restored to its original splendor, maintaining many of its original 17th Century features. During its refurbishment, great care was taken to maintain the character of the building, preserving its natural stone flagged floors and ancient wooden beams. These rustic features combine with the classic elegance of its interior design throughout the public areas and guestrooms. Discover a unique hotel with a remarkable history.
18 holes, 72 par, 6,430 yards. Parkland.
The wide fairways and large greens are a key feature of Poniente, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it makes the course any easier as many fairways and greens slope away unsuspectingly. But the main hazards on this course are the vast number of trees, which line the fairways and have been home to many a wayward tee shot. The views from the 8th and 16th are truly spectacular, ensuring you appreciate the true beauty of the course.
