The Iberostar Hotel Group has collaborated with designer Marcel Wanders on an adults-only five-star hotel, the Grand Hotel Portal Nous, in what is considered the Riviera of Mallorca, Portals Nous. The hotel is perched above the sparkling Mediterranean in a secluded cove, surrounded by the luxury properties of Calvià’s jetsetters and Forbes A-listers.
The Grand Hotel Portals Nous towers seven stories above a small cove, La Calita de Portals. The neighbourhood is one of Calvià’s most affluent, and the hotel looks out on some of the most expensive mansions on Mallorca. From the ground floor lobby and terrace the glistening waters of the Mediterranean sea are just steps away.
Relax & Enjoy
The hotel’s designer, Marcel Wanders, is famous for his kitsch and humorous designs. Wanders’ concept for the beach front luxury hotel is to titillate the five senses, through sensuous experiences and the result is a Disneyland for grown-ups. In the 600-square-metre spa, Physica Health & Beauty Spa, large white cartoonish ‘wanderland’ tree sculptures surround therapeutic showers, and the steam hammam is shaped like an igloo. There are two dry saunas with infared lighting, and a plunge pool, in a dimly lit, night-themed spa. Then move into the ‘daylight’; a bright relaxation lounge. There are private rooms for beauty treatments, and a large gym with Technogym equipment. Health and wellness consultants are on hand to develop a customised program for guests. The large terrace has sunbeds and a flower-patterned mosaic pool with a seven-storey waterfall.
The 66 rooms and suites of the hotel are divided into five categories, and offer thematic rooms, perhaps a nod to ‘love hotels’ popular in Japan. There is a bordello ‘Naughty suite’ complete with a round bed, Araki erotica, and Moet & Chandon champagne on ice when you arrive. A ‘Games suite’ is equipped with boardgames, fuzzball, and Nintendo, and there is a ‘Spa suite’ offering his and hers massages. The penthouses have private rooftop terraces, and are corner rooms hanging over the Mediterranean with one of the best sea views on Mallorca. Each of the room has signature Wanders touches, playful and humorous; large glass lenses behind the mirrors and a the hotel’s thematic flower pattern are worked into the white modern decor. In the ensuite bathrooms the toiletries are Bulgari. The technology is state-of-the-art, with device mirroring capabilities, and an app for the hotel you can download and request room service and concierge services from your own device.
Eat & Drink
The restaurant, Astir, has one of the most spectacular terraces in Mallorca, with unobstructed views of the sea. You can sip Dom Perignon in the al fresco champagne bar and watch the sunset, and then retreat indoors or remain on the terrace for dinner. Astir, which means ‘star’ serves a sophisticated menu of innovative seafood and Mediterranean gastronomy. it is the only restaurant on Mallorca that serves ‘Capricho’ critically acclaimed to be the “best meat in the world”.
The hotel bar, Sellini, which means ‘moon’, has classic cocktails, aperitifs and snacks.
