About us
Why Is It Revealed?

To go to the beginnings of Es Revellar we must go back a few years, to 1993

The original project was born from a clear idea,to take art outside, take it out of museums and integrate it into nature. Offer an oasis, a unique place where our clients can appreciate art, in a different way than museums and galleries have accustomed us to and without being subjected to what is known as “museum fatigue” 1 or museum fatigue. 

To do this, we first had to find the ideal place, something that was certainly not easy at all. First of all you had to choose the country. Several were considered until finally, the social situation, the climate, the security and the proximity to the main countries sending travelers, made Spain and specifically Mallorca the chosen place. Once the place was decided, the land had to be found, and to do this, more than 50 properties had to be visited since the land had to: be accessible by vehicle, have access to water, the electrical system and the telephone network. Another requirement was that it not be far from the airport, but at the same time be located in an environment away from noise. As we can see, it was not an easy process since there were many requirements to take into account, however, finally, and after 2 years of intense searching, the Es Revellar estate appeared, a Mallorcan “possessió”. whose first records date back to just over 600 years ago. 

The property was in a general deplorable state, so the renovation of the buildings and the creation of the gardens, as well as the different spaces, lasted for years, (years during which the property served as a summer retreat for family and friends). The old pigpens and dairy farms were renovated to convert them into the current rooms, new structures were created to house the new facilities, gardens, restaurant, swimming pool, museums and a whole series of changes and modifications were made as the project developed. Those years of reform were used to acquire new art collections such as that of Papua Guinea or the collection of terracotta pieces from the Niger River basin, pieces currently exhibited in our museums and in our cave respectively. 

As a result of all this effort, today we can say that we are the 1st Art Resort in Spain and one of the few in the world. Our art rooms tell stories, stories from different eras, but all with a common link, art within the history of humanity. That which unites us all, the origins, and how we have evolved. From the prehistoric Nok culture of the Niger River basin to the great artists of the 20th century, looked at from an anthropological perspective. Our greatest interest in art lies precisely in this anthropological perspective, where nature is captured in the form of landscaping, hence our special interest in primitive or ethnic art, “Land Art” ² or art of the landscape, in naive art and even in Romanesque art.

Thanks to 30 years of work, but with private collecting for more than 45, we have achieved the magnificent art exhibition of Es Revellar Art Resort, which touches, in addition to what was previously described, Goya, Impressionism , cubism and American abstract expressionism. 

Our objective today remains the same, to offer an environment in which guests can enjoy art from the moment they arrive at the Resort, later walking through our gardens and visiting our museums and even when they go to rest in their rooms. All this in, probably,the best artistic gardens in Mallorca

Located near the natural beach of Es Trenc, we are talking about, without a doubt, a Mediterranean paradise where you can enjoy a holiday of peace, tranquility, nature, art and gastronomy. 

Welcome to Es Revellar Art Resort.

1. “Museum fatigue”: concept coined in 1916 by Benjamin Ives  Gilman, curator of the Boston Fine Arts Museum. Museum fatigue refers to the fatigue caused during a visit to the museum due to problems related to museum design. Also, we can attribute this fatigue to the fact that the visit to the museum is highly demanding, physically and cognitively, so after 1 hour and a half of visiting it is difficult for us to retain part of the information that the artist wishes to convey to us through his works. . The solution is none other than an open museum with spaces for coexistence and places to rest.

2. “Land art” (proposed by Robert Smithson), also known as Earth art, environmental art or earth works, is a current of contemporary art in which the landscape and the work of art are closely linked. It uses nature as material (wood, earth, stones, sand, wind, rocks, fire, water, etc.) to intervene in itself. The work generated is from the place in which it is intervened, which sometimes seems like a cross between sculpture and architecture, and at other times a hybrid between sculpture and landscape architecture, where it plays an increasingly determining role in public space. contemporary.
