Celebrating a Second Anniversary
Hotel Sant Francesc, Still One of the Hottest Hotels on the Planet
Hotel Sant Francesc is proud to celebrate its second anniversary. “It has been an exciting time for me and my family from the moment we opened our doors,” says Andrés Soldevila Casals, proprietor. “From the first review by the Sunday Times UK, we were named a “Hot Hotel” – a potentially tough claim to live up, but the team delivered under the guidance of Ilka Karl as General Manager. We are delighted that some of our first guests continue to return again and again," says Soldevila Ferrer.
"We have put our heart and soul into the project and have been humbled and honored by the recognition that the hotel has received. It is everything that we ever dreamed about," says Soldevila Ferrer.
As we look to the future, Ilka Karl has been appointed Director of Corporate Development for the Sant Francesc Hotel Singular brand. In this capacity, she will plan and execute strategies to meet the organizational objectives moving forward.
"I move on in my new role knowing that we reached an extraordinary level of recognition within two years. This can only be accomplished with great team work. I look forward to an even brighter future," says Karl.
Meet Miguel García Feliz, General Manager
Taking on the role of General Manager is Miguel García Feliz whose experience was acquired at Claridge's and The Connaught in London. With this he'll bring a balanced and fresh approach to the luxury we would like to deliver. He will strive to maintain the standards that have been developed while creating new experiences for the guests.
"One of the most important aspects in hospitality is showing respect for guests, staff and the building. I'll continue to build on the great foundation that has been created to further develop the most memorable experiences for our guests," says García Feliz.
The hotel has received an extraordinary list of accolades: Conde Nast Traveler’s 50 Best Hotels in the World, Architectural Digest – 15 Best Hotels to Open in Europe and Tatler’s Best 100 New Hotels to name a few. In January 2017, the latest rewarding moment was when Hotel Sant Francesc was added to Conde Nast Traveler Spain’s Gold List. From an untouched 18th century Manor House to being named “One of the Best Hotels on the Planet” Sant Francesc has grown into being a top luxury urban resort in the center of Palma de Mallorca.
