Venue description

The Barceló Formentor

Welcome to the “Hotel of Stars”

85 years, same philosphy

The Barceló Formentor Hotel is not only an exclusive establishment set in extraordinary natural surroundings: it is a symbol of the spirit of this land, Formentor, the birthplace of artists and an inspirational destination to many great personalities of the 20th century, as well as an homage to culture and respect for the environment.

It was started in the 1920s as the generous gesture of the visionary Adan Diehl. This avant-garde Argentine intellectual, lover of nature and of art, was captivated by the great poet Miquel Costa i Llobera and his love of Formentor. He decided to buy a large part of Formentor and live there with his wife in order to ensure that nature was respected and the culture promoted.

In 1929, the Formentor hotel became a reality, frequented by writers, painters and musicians right from the very start. Years later, the Buadas family fulfilled the wishes of Diehl and established the hotel as a refuge for creative minds and as a forum for debate and reflection.

International leaders, famous artists, monarchs and Nobel Prize winners have all stayed at the Barceló Formentor Hotel. Grace Kelly and Rainier of Monaco spent part of their honeymoon in this emblematic place. But also Le Corbusier, the great Swiss architect; actors such as John Wayne, Charlie Chaplin and Audrey Hepburn; personalities like the Dalai Lama; and political leaders such as Winston Churchill have all chosen this idyllic place to switch off and unwind.

That’s why the Formentor hotel, Mallorca’s leading luxury hotel, has always been known as “the hotel to the stars”.

This glamorous, lively landmark of Mallorca had always caught the attention of the Barceló Hotels & Resorts group. It purchased the site in 2006 with the certainty that its philosophy could be modernised, but never changed. Because, in the words of writer Carlos Fuentes, the Barceló Formentor hotel is “the herald of happiness that distinguishes itself and that always, year after year, stands by its generous and hospitable service.”
