“It is not often within business or life that you are offered the opportunity to take on a project which will define your ability and success and deliver a lasting legacy. Mostatxins is Majorcan for Moustache, and folk law says the original owner of the manor house sported a famous wax moustache.”
The house contains many stunning and unique historical features, such as a wine vat, which predates the house, a 15th century tower and a large courtyard cut out of the sandstone sitting 20 metres below ground. Hotel Moustache have strived to keep as many of these original features as possible.
The local Mayor and Council have oversaw the project,and there has been keen interest from the people of Alcúdia, who are excited at the prospect of their town being home to such an exciting project, injecting glamour into Alcúdia whilst remaining true to the towns historical theme.
Mark who has 45 years of experience in the hotel industry adds; “There has been keen interest from the people of Alcúdia, who are excited at the prospect of the Moustache House opening its doors and joining the business community for the town. We are honoured to have been able to deliver this project!”
