Restoration of the spectacular new Son Bunyola Hotel, Mallorca, completed
18 October 2023
Currie & Brown has successfully delivered project management, cost management and multiple client engagement services on the stunning Son Bunyola Hotel in Mallorca.
Directed by Virgin Limited Edition, the Currie & Brown team oversaw an incredible restoration and transformation of the property. What was a damaged traditional 16th century finca is now a world-class luxury establishment. It now comprises 26 rooms and suites, two restaurants, lounges, external dining terraces and an impressive 28-metre swimming pool
The historic nature of the central building, combined with its position on a 1,300-acre UNESCO World Heritage Site, contributed to a uniquely complex project. Currie & Brown played a key role in bringing it to fruition by collaborating closely with key stakeholders to achieve the numerous licences and standards needed to restore the historic site. Importantly, the team also worked closely with supply chain partners to ensure that the historic integrity of the building could be fully maintained.
Nigel Capes, Director of Project Management, Currie & Brown, comments: "Throughout this project, we have been guided by our client’s ambition: to carefully transform a historic finca into a beautiful new luxury hotel. We also needed to preserve its unique historic environment and retain all of its original features, while ensuring its sustainability credentials are always at the forefront. Achieving this has required huge levels of innovation and collaboration from all involved. It has been a great privilege to be part of a team so committed to achieving Virgin Limited Edition’s unique vision."
Rob Aquadro, Project Development Director for the Virgin Group comments: "Currie & Brown has been a been a skilled partner throughout this complex project. Renovating a property of this size and historic significance naturally gives rise to unique challenges. Currie & Brown’s expertise has been instrumental in overcoming these, keeping the project on track and within budget."
