Hotel History

Castillo Hotel Son Vida’s noble history dates back to the 13th century, when King Jaume I declared the hills behind Palma city—where the hotel is located—fertile ground.

Entrance

It wasn’t until the 16th century, when Mateu Vida acquired the medieval castle that now houses the hotel, that the building was baptized. The castle’s subsequent owners, the aristocratic Desmás and Truyols families, kept the castle’s distinctive name, marking the beginning of a proud heritage of elite service, elaborate feasts, and profound relaxation. Near the turn of the 20th century, Fernando Truyols and Despuig undertook extensive and extravagant renovations as a gift to his wife, Magdalena Villalonga. The result was a villa with the look of a castle, complete with a tower. Fifty-seven years later, the Truyols family sold the private Son Vida estate to Steve Kusak, the founder of “Urbanización Son Vida,” and on June 23, 1961, the castle opened its doors as a luxury hotel. Three years later, the island’s first golf course, the Golf Son Vida, was inaugurated next door. In 1995, the hotel was purchased by the Schörghuber Group, renamed Castillo Hotel Son Vida, and designated as one of the “Leading Hotels of the World”. In January 2005, the hotel closed its doors and undertook a renovation and rebuilding, which was completed the following February. Two years later, in March 2007, the legendary hotel became a member of Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury Collection, joining the ranks of the world’s most extraordinarily, unique luxury hotels and resorts. Today, Castillo Hotel Son Vida, part of Marriott International, shines with a rich legacy and history, drawing influential guests from all over the world. Politicians and celebrities have chosen Castillo Hotel Son Vida as their Mallorcan destination including: Prince Rainier of Monaco and Grace Kelly, Aristotle Onassis, Maria Callas, Anthony Quinn, Pedro Almodóvar, Claudia Schiffer, and many more.
