Jurgen Klopp is set to fly to Majorca within the next two weeks, where he will stay at a luxury five-star hotel while construction work finishes on his new £3.4million villa, MailOnline can reveal.

The former Liverpool manager has been building an ‘ecological family paradise’ on the Spanish holiday island with his wife of almost 20 years, Ulla.

Klopp, who bid an emotional farewell to Liverpool fans on Sunday after bringing down the curtain on a glittering nine-year spell, is due to jet out to the Balearic Islands in the next fortnight to check on the progress of the mansion in Santa Ponsa.


Sources have told MailOnline that he is due to stay at the five-star Kimpton Aysla Hotel – which is just down the road from his new villa. Insiders say that Ulla – who has taken the lead on the new villa – has stayed several times at the hotel, where the cheapest room is around £500-a-night.

She will often greet staff but is ‘solitary’ and keeps herself to herself, except when Klopp visits.

Germany defender Jerome Boateng is among the celebrities who have also stayed at the hotel which boasts three restaurants, a spa, a gym, a pool and a yoga studio.

Klopp, who said he was leaving Liverpool because he was ‘running out of energy’, purchased the Majorca home in June 2022 for €4million (£3.4m) from Swiss businessman and artist Rolf Knie and decided to completely rebuild the 5,000-square metre property.

His nearby neighbours will include another ex-Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers, and his old Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.

Construction on Klopp’s new home – which features a swimming pool, a hanging chair and a stripy hammock in the garden – appears to be near completion, just in time for the manager’s departure from Liverpool. But the fact he is staying at a hotel suggests that work is not entirely done yet.

Before and after pictures show that Klopp has replaced the playful front gate, which used to feature elephants on it, with a simple yet sleek entrance.

Behind the new gate is a long drive lined with palm trees leading up to the villa.

There is also a large patio decked out with a seating area and sunloungers overlooking the swimming pool and landscaped garden.

It also appears that the German manager has built an area at the end of the spacious garden to play bowls – a sport which he previously played with Liverpool fans in 2016.

It’s understood Klopp has transformed his villa into a eco-friendly home where electricity consumption will be reduced by up to 75 per cent using a system where the heating and air condition is interconnected.

Klopp's new home backs onto the Santa Ponsa Golf Club, where the likes of tennis star Rafael Nadal have played. To become a member you must buy a share in the club for around €20,000 - and then fork out an additional €2,270-a-year

The two systems are regulated by a computer to ensure the temperature in the house remains unchanged, regardless of the outside weather, Bild reports.

Klopp’s new villa is located in a remote neighbourhood but is just a 10-minute walk to the exclusive Mallorca Country Club – where he and Ulla have wasted no time in becoming honorary members.

While Klopp may not have enough energy to continue in football, insiders told MailOnline the manager has already visited the €2,800-a-year club to play padel – a hybrid of squash and tennis.

Sources described Klopp as ‘charismatic and cheerful’ and revealed how the popular coach has already made a good impression, stopping to take selfies with members and staff.

Klopp has previously admitted he is ‘addicted’ to the sport and even had a padel court installed at Liverpool’s training ground.

As well as having three padel courts, the Mallorca Country Club boasts six grass courts, one hard court, five clay courts, one pickleball court, a gym, a pool, an ice bath, a sauna and a member’s lounge and restaurant.

Former World No 1 tennis stars Naomi Osaka and Angelique Kerber were practicing on the courts on Saturday, while the club is also hosting the ATP Tour next month.

Klopp and his wife are among a select group honorary members which includes Prince Albert of Monaco, Princess Birgitta of Sweden, Boris Becker, Novak Djokovic and British billionaire Sir Richard Branson.

But it appears this is not the only thing that Klopp and Branson have in common.

Landscaping work on Klopp’s garden is said to have been carried out by the same company that designed the garden of the luxurious Son Bunyola hotel in Majorca owned by Branson.

While Klopp’s sport of choice is padel, his new home also backs onto the Santa Ponsa Golf Club, where the likes of tennis star Rafael Nadal have played.

However, to become a member at the seven-time European tour venue, you must buy a share in the club for around €20,000 – and then fork out an additional €2,270-a-year.

The popular Santa Ponsa region is said to be home to various German celebrities, including another Jurgen.

German singer Jurgen Drews, who is known as ‘the undisputed king of Majorca’ for his impact on the party scene, also has a place in the region.

Santa Ponsa is a popular resort for partygoers and Klopp’s home is around eight minutes from the rowdy Ramon de Montcada strip which is packed with bars and clubs.

Perhaps he will be more suited to the nearby Santa Ponsa beach, where he can sit back and reminisce on a hugely successful nine years at Liverpool.

Klopp has admitted he is lacking in energy but refuted that he has retired from the game completely.

In his final press conference, he said: ‘I will work. I have just finished this job. I don’t know exactly why nobody believes I will probably not be a manager again, but I understand because obviously it seems to be a drug.

‘It looks like that as everybody comes back and everybody works until they are 70-something. I have always had the idea I won’t do that. Other people are smarter and do it in different ways, but I have to be all-in. I have to be the spark, I have to be the energiser, I have to be all these kind of things. And I am empty. That’s it.’
