The hotel in Magalluf that Meliá Hotels International have built to replace the old Jamaica Hotel will open in July as Calvia Beach The Plaza. The site is both hotel and commercial centre (the Momentum Plaza). Meliá's director of real estate, Mark Hoddinott, says that the plaza is something that Magalluf has lacked. It will be somewhere for public use by both residents and tourists, who "will not need to leave Magalluf in the evening to find quality restaurants and shopping". The director of the Momentum Plaza, Beatriz Ley, adds that the residents of Magalluf are as if not more important than the tourists.
There will be 200 underground car parking spaces, and the centre will feature brands such as Mango, Springfield and Starbucks. There will also be "Urban Food", a gourmet gastronomy market.
The hotel, it is said, is "an example of leading hotel architecture". Between the roofs of the two buildings will be a hanging pool against a transparent background. The hotel will provide 130 direct jobs.
With the completion of the project, Meliá are bringing to an end a seven-year plan in Magalluf. Together with international partners, there has been investment of 250 million euros. Meliá's CEO, Gabriel Escarrer, says that the hotel and the plaza represent the "last great milestone of a bold project".
