Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today confirmed plans to open a new hotel under its flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand on Mallorca’s pristine Costa de la Calma. The news follows the signing of a management agreement with Galatzo Inversiones, S.L.
The 208-room Hilton Mallorca Galatzo, opening in summer 2022, is the latest hotel to join Hilton’s growing pipeline of properties in Spain, which has seen three hotels open this year alone and includes 23 hotels under nine brands trading or under development in 16 destinations across the country.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton said, “Following recent announcements in Crete, Rijeka, Santorini and Sardinia, Hilton Mallorca Galatzo is the latest in a string of spectacular resort hotels planned in the Mediterranean. As one of the most popular holiday destinations for European travellers, Mallorca is an ideal location for an international brand like Hilton Hotels & Resorts and we are pleased to partner with Galatzo Inversiones, S.L. to open this hotel next year.”
Carlos Martins, chief executive officer of Galatzo Inversiones, S.L., said “We look forward to welcoming guests to the new Hilton Mallorca Galatzo next year, following substantial refurbishments to elevate the property’s interiors and facilities. With our experience of developing resort hotels in Spain, we are excited to partner with Hilton to introduce this stunning resort to the international market.”
Set out over 54,000 square meters of perfectly presented gardens, the hotel will boast three swimming pools and two pool bars, ensuring guests are never far from a cool drink and a dip in the pool to complement the warm Balearic climate. The hotel’s lobby is also set to include a bar leading to an expansive outdoor terrace, and guests will be able to enjoy a variety of culinary options at the resort, including from the hotel’s two distinct dining experiences.
For those hosting events, whether a party, conference, wedding or meeting, the hotel offers 1,000 square meters of meeting rooms and event spaces, the largest of which can host 390 guests.
With relaxation and rejuvenation in mind, Hilton Mallorca Galatzo will offer a 1,500-square-meter spa and wellness centre, complete with six treatment rooms and a variety of packages to suit all guests. With a sauna, jacuzzi, sensation showers and more, those looking to recharge themselves will have plenty of options. In addition to these wellness facilities, the hotel offers a fitness centre as well as multiple tennis courts.

The hotel will be ideally located for access to many of Mallorca’s best attractions, keeping guests at the centre of the action and providing a welcome oasis to relax and enjoy.
Hilton Mallorca Galatzo will join the award-winning Hilton Honors guest loyalty programme, allowing more than 118 million members who book directly with Hilton to earn Points for hotel stays and experiences, plus instant benefits including contactless check-in with room selection, Digital Key, and Connected Room.
