Son Amar, like Mallorca itself, has been transforming itself over the recent years. Now, Son Amar has become one of the most re-energised, re-born, reformed, refreshing venues on the island, for the islanders.
Once a simple tourist destination (since 1963), Son Amar is, in fact, an ancient country estate, situated in the foothills of the majestic Tramuntana mountains, in the heart of the island, in the district of Bunyola. Across the road is the modern village of Palmanyola, on the road to Soller – around 7 minutes from exit 5a off the Palma motorway Ma 20.
“A fusion of styles where each compliment the other .”
Built in the 16th century for the Omar family, Son Amar has become a symbol of the exciting synergy of history and modernity, creating what Mallorca excels in – a fusion of styles where each compliment the other – so very clever. A walk through the fascinating city of Palma will reveal exactly what we mean – the ancient patios of Palma, where the natural friendliness of the townspeople offered much-needed refreshments to passing travellers and now, today, where some of those architectural wonders now house some of the most stylish shops and offices displaying the explosive talents of Spanish architects and designers.
