Som Hotels, the hotel chain led by Joan Enric Capellà and Vicenç Miralles (two former directors of the Piñero Group who launched the Som Hotels chain), has purchased the Hotel Millor Garden (Cala Millor, Mallorca), which they have renamed the Som Llevant Suite. As such, the Mallorcan chain adds a fourth property to its portfolio.
Som Hotels’ latest acquisition has 86 rooms and following a refurbishment, which “will begin in November and last the whole winter”, will increase its category to become a four star hotel.
Although the purchase of Millor Garden has already been completed, “the former owner will continue to operate the property this year and we will take over the management from next year onwards”, said Capellà, who indicated that “the Hotel Som Llevant Suites will open its doors in April 2017”.
The hotel chain, which opened its first property, Som Fona (S’Illot, Cala Millor), in the Balearic Islands last year is in the middle of an expansion process. Just a month ago, it opened two more hotels, Hotel Som Far (Aucanada, Alcudia) with 45 rooms and Son Llaüt Boutique Hotel (Can Picafort) with 24 rooms, both four star properties on the beachfront.
