October and November have been the months for the collection and production of olive oil in Sant Joan de Binissaida. With the summer season over, the work in the field demands our attention, and we wanted to share with you what this precious process is like that we carry out with great care and care for our plantation. Curious with us?
It was October 8, 1993 when Menorca was declared a Biosphere Reserve. At that time, words like sustainability, environmentalism and climate change were not on the agendas of public institutions. However, in the Menorcan DNA, these concepts began to take shape as if it were a germinating seed. Almost 30 years later, Sant Joan de Binissaida proudly wears its little piece of Biosphere Reserve through the official brand.
All up and running, that euphoria and illusion that characterizes the beginning of every season, those first impromptu meals with the whole team, the re-encounter, the new uniforms, the hotel looking beautiful after all the winter work, we get focussed, we take a deep breath and… we open.
This year has been very special for us thanks to all who have given us the opportunity to be part of events that in one way or another mark your life. That is why, first of all, we wanted to thank the trust, affection, respect and love with which we have had the pleasure of working these months; Without you, the magic of Binissaida would not be the same. Thank you for all those weddings that we have been fortunate to witness, christenings and communions, private parties and corporate events, it has been a real pleasure!
Menorca looks greener than ever, its streets are filled with lights and the supermarkets full of nougat and candies. We have stored the beach towel and dusted the coats and scarves. Our chickens lay less eggs and the sheeps prefer stay at the corral instead of walking through the grass. Something tells us that winter is coming… oh! It’s almost Christmas!
We barely cannot believe that the 2019 season has passed, the year in which we also celebrate our 15th birthday in style. This was without any doubt THE EVENT of the season, and if you could not make it to be there with us, we’ll do our best to explain you how was it:
We seek to offer the best service in all aspects of the hotel: from rooms where you feel at home but at the same time vacations in a dream place, to our service, construction and decoration materials, integration into the environment, passing through course for food and beverage.
You are not going to come to such an amazing place and eat badly, don't you think?
From this, our rural home, we are very aware of the importance of protecting the paradise that is Menorca and trying to minimize our impact on the environment.
On Monday, 29 July, the human race started living on credit. As calculated by the organisation the Global Footprint Network, from now till the end of December, we will be using resources faster than the planet can replace them. And every year that overdraft date is coming earlier.
From the rural hotel of Sant Joan de Binissaida, we declare ourselves music lovers and especially opera. For this reason, we have named artists to our new rooms as a tribute.
We love hotels that do things in their own style, wasting out personality, just like the composers we have chosen as part of this family. And we are pretty sure that you would like to know them a little better, wouldn’t you?
