PALMA
A Majorca-based British consortium is in the final stages of securing permission to develop a luxury spa hotel and 18-hole golf course on the site of the current nine-hole Pollensa Golf course and club.

The consortium is being led by the Pollensa-based Barnard Hamilton Group of companies and includes a number of British partners.
Permission to build a hotel and expand the golf course to eighteen holes was granted in 1990 but, due to a lack of interest and investment, the original project was never carried out.

However, nearly 20 years later, the British consortium is in the final process of “reactivating” the development licenses.
It appears that the project has the backing and support of the local council which believes it will give quality tourism in the area an important boost
The five-star hotel will have 100 bedrooms and also include a luxury spa while the eighteen hole golf course will be one of the most advanced in the Balearics and be renamed Son Gall in honour of the famous rooster emblem of Pollensa. Russell Hamilton Currie said yesterday that no fixed date has been set for work on the project to commence.
