The hotel group has announced the opening of a new 4*S hotel in Mallorca and the complete refurbishment of its hotel in Malaga.
In 2014, GALLERY HOTELES group began a renovation plan for two of its urban hotels, in Barcelona and Malaga. They are now building on this with an expansion that started in 2017 with the purchase of premises in Mallorca where a new hotel will open ready for the 2018 season.
This third hotel that is joining the group will open its doors in May 2018, with 78 rooms of various categories and capacities. The new hotel has been christened HOTEL HONUCAI 4*S (from the Hawaiian word HONU-KAI: sea turtle), which owes to the mix of Mediterranean and exotic styles distilled in the hotel's individual décor, as well as paying tribute to the protected native species of sea turtle that inhabits the island. At the same time, the sound of “HONUCAI” evokes the ethnic influences brought together in this renovation project, with which we have sought to design unique spaces that have their own soul and character, using natural and sea materials to create a vibrant and light-filled environment.
The new HOTEL HONUCAI is located in the south of the island, at the heart of the seafront promenade in Colonia de Sant Jordi, the busiest part of this ancient fishing village, and just metres from the spectacular Es Carbó and Es Trenc beaches.
With this new seasonal hotel, the group is moving into this accommodation type within the holiday sector. Hotel Honucai maintains its own unique personality whilst also displaying all the hallmarks of the Gallery Hoteles brand: 4* superior category, an unbeatable central location, a “boutique hotel” concept, exceptional customer service and a clear commitment to its own quality cuisine.
The building is currently undergoing a complete makeover, including the renovation of the façade, rooms and bathrooms, restaurant, patio, hall and reception, with the total investment reaching 3 million euros. The hotel will also have two meeting and events rooms, spa and fitness equipment for guests and the area’s first brand new rooftop space, “The TOP”, with panoramic views, pool, restaurant and cocktail bar. This new space builds on the patio concept created in Barcelona four years ago with the now iconic “The TOP” at Gallery Hotel, demonstrating once again the company’s commitment to becoming a point of reference in the places where it is established, offering spaces for leisure and cuisine aimed at the local public as well as tourists by opening its doors to customers beyond the hotel’s guests.
Gallery Hoteles Group is also starting 2018 with the complete refurbishment of its hotel in Malaga, the Molina Lario, with a 3.5-million-euro investment. This renovation project, which includes the 103 rooms and bathrooms, communal areas and patios, has particularly high hopes for its launch of a new brand of restaurant that will be unveiled in March 2018, in another demonstration of the company’s commitment to quality cuisine in its establishments.
Marta Golobardes, General Director of Gallery Hoteles, states that “following the renovation of our flagship hotel, the Gallery Hotel in Barcelona, we are starting 2018 with a new challenge, in order to continue to grow in quality and service, positioning ourselves as specialists in the 4* superior category. This is all possible through our strategy, based on two key pillars: expanding our range to include one of the most popular destinations on the European market with the new hotel in Mallorca, and complete renovation of the Malaga hotel’s facilities to maintain our position as a leader among the city’s tourism businesses. With these new milestones, we want to offer our guests a better range of tourist destinations with the mark of quality and distinctive personality that define the Gallery Hoteles service.”
