HIP AND AMR™ COLLECTION ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF DREAMS CALVIÁ MALLORCA AFTER AN INVESTMENT OF NEARLY €27 MILLION
• Following its renovation, Dreams Calviá Mallorca has achieved a “very good” BREEAM sustainability certification, an international sustainability hallmark for buildings
• Located in one of the most popular tourist areas of the Balearic Islands, just 100 metres from the sea, the 4-star hotel has 391 rooms
• The investment and repositioning plans carried out by Hotel Investment Partners, and the management by an AMR Collection® brand, has created a unique hotel with an innovative offer for Magaluf
Barcelona, Madrid, 23 May 2022 – This May, the recently refurbished Dreams Calviá Mallorca will open to guests for the summer season. The four-star hotel is owned by Hotel Investment Partners (HIP), the largest owner of resort hotels in Southern Europe and owned by funds managed by Blackstone and run by a brand of AMR Collection®, a hotel manager of Apple Leisure Group® (ALG), part of Hyatt.
The innovative and newly refurbished hotel is located only 100 metres from the Mediterranean Sea in Magaluf, on the island of Mallorca, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Balearic Islands.
Following an investment of nearly €27 million by HIP, a complete renovation of the existing facilities and the construction of two new buildings has been carried out. One of the new buildings has 22-two rooms where the premium rooms for Preferred Club guests are located, and another with 18 rooms. The investment has placed more emphasis on quality, increasing the number of junior suite and suite rooms, meaning there are fewer rooms than before with a total of 391 rooms. The renovation also achieved a “very good” BREEAM sustainability certification, an international sustainability hallmark for buildings.
The new Dreams Calviá Mallorca has been designed by the renowned interior designer Jaime Beriestain, with a strong focus on entertainment and health. It has a wellness area, gym, Explorer's Club for children and Core Zone, an entertainment club for teenagers. The complex has a total of four swimming pools, with facilities for children, Balinese beds, several terraces, solarium and areas reserved for adults only.
In addition, an enhanced culinary offer has been introduced with guests able to enjoy live cooking shows, two all-inclusive buffets, two snack bars, a food market and four à la carte restaurants with Mallorcan and international cuisine.
In addition, Dreams Calvia Mallorca will offer exclusive and premium services for Preferred Club guests to enjoy the AMR™ Collection luxury all-inclusive experience, including private areas and reserved facilities with extra services.
HIP has carried out a comprehensive transformation of both the asset and the concept, offering an innovative, customer centric experience. The facilities have been adapted and the quality of service has been enhanced to align with the quality standards of the AMR™ Collection Dreams Resorts & Spas brand. HIP's strategy for assets such as this one, with its size and prime location, involves the creation of value through an investment and management plan that allows the hotel to be repositioned, which has a positive impact on the development of the destination, an objective shared with ALG.
