Located in the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana (Mallorca), in a spectacular 14th century estate of 2.6 million square meters, this 5-star hotel with 25 rooms is a destination in itself.
The hotel, which is the first hotel establishment of the LJs business group, aspires to become the greenest luxury hotel in the Mediterranean.
A few kilometers from the beautiful town of Puigpunyent, in the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana (Mallorca), a winding road leads to the spectacular 14th century “Arratxa” estate. The eyes cannot see the end of the 2.6 million square meters that occupies its land. Forests and mountains draw the visitor’s attention, while an orchard with local products evokes the richness of those fields, and hints at the presence of groundwater, protagonists of the fertility of the other Mallorca: the unknown, the unexplored, the green.
The ratxó that channels the water coming from the Sierra, flows into the depths of the valley generating life, and becoming the common thread of a unique sustainable luxury project. As if it were a mountain town, LJs Ratxó emerges joining different buildings of local architecture, clad in the traditional Mallorcan stone, in which the 25 rooms of between 25 and 80 square meters of the hotel are located, all of them with terrace or garden, an essential attribute to be able to enjoy such beauty; and the most exclusive with their own private pool.
Rustic furniture from Can Garaña, and absolutely Mediterranean designs such as the water cloth, the blown glass, the clay containers from Terracuita or the lamps made by the hotel’s cabinetmakers with wood from the estate, provide an extra authenticity to a establishment that is presented as a benchmark of the most authentic Mallorca.
But LJs Ratxó is much more than a mountain hotel, it is a destination in itself. A classification that for many is synonymous with the new luxury, and that refers to a feeling, rather than a series of material objects. It is everything that generates a continuous “wow” in customers: XL-size hot tubs; restaurants like Roots built next to the mountain; spectacular terraces overlooking a dream pool; a spa that invites you to immerse yourself in absolute relaxation; Custom-designed mindfulness experiences and full-color peacocks that claim their place, claiming the stellar role that nature plays in this unique establishment.
A role required by the location of the hotel in the mountains, but above all, intentional. And it is that LJs Ratxó was born with a global sustainable management plan, of scope 360. To current initiatives such as the rational use of water, individual control of air conditioners, LED lighting, the elimination of plastic products in a single use, the digitization of all printed materials to reduce paper consumption, the replacement of capsule coffee machines with others that work with coffee beans, the use of recycled such as cups made with coffee grounds, the recruitment of more than 70% of the personnel residing on the island and the consumption of local products of proximity, kilometer 0 and even cultivated in the hotel’s own garden; Other even more revolutionary ones will soon join, such as the cleaning of the surrounding forests, the recovery of the native flora, the incorporation of electric vehicles, and the installation of different systems and equipment that will supply the complex with renewable energies, and that will allow sustainable treatment. of all the waste it generates, among others.
