Barcelona, Madrid. – June 20, 2022. - The Occidental Cala Viñas, the newly renovated 4-star hotel located on the seafront in the south of Mallorca, has opened to guests this month following an investment of nearly €5 million. 
The hotel, owned by HIP, the largest owner of resort hotels in Southern Europe owned by funds managed by Blackstone, has a prime location with direct access to the Cala Viñas cove. Following its upgrade, the property will continue to be operated by the Barceló Hotel Group under the Occidental brand. 
The hotel has 329 rooms which have been fully refurbished following the investment made by HIP. The common and leisure areas have also been renovated, expanding and improving its leisure and culinary offering. For example, the new buffet restaurant has been designed to enjoy the sea views, with the aim of improving the customer's experience. 
The Occidental Cala Viñas has 103 premium rooms, four swimming pools, one of them with a small splash-park for children, outdoor hot tub, kids-club, a complete wellness spa with a water circuit and an extensive entertainment program for the whole family. The buffet and à la carte restaurants offer a variety of Mediterranean and international cuisine, complemented by a cafe and two bars.
This is the third reopening of a refurbished hotel owned by HIP in Mallorca in recent weeks: Dreams Calviá Resort & SPA, managed under the Apple Leisure Group® brand Dreams, opened in May after an investment of nearly €27 million, and Barceló Aguamarina (€20.5 million) and Cala Viñas both reopen this June.
HIP is committed to generating value for the destinations in which they operate through investment and repositioning its hotel assets. Conceptualization plays a fundamental role in the repositioning of the assets, which is why the choice of strategic partners, such as Barceló Hotel Group, is key due to their experience and market knowledge.
