pools with views over the Mediterranean, plus a restaurant at
street level open to both guests, tourists and locals. The hotel

project in which the Company has worked tirelessly to make Magaluf
one of the best destinations in the Mediterranean. We will
maintain our commitment to making Magaluf a world leader in innovative tourism that generates value for society as a whole.
This is the responsible tourism model to which we are committed and which frames our future growth.”
