The aim is to identify, showcase and reward excellence in the hotel industry around the world. The criteria used for this global assessment include design, quality, service, innovation, originality and a commitment to sustainability. Of all the candidates put forward for the 2017-2018 edition of the awards, the Iberostar Grand Portals Nous received the prize for Best Sustainable Hotel and also received ‘International Five Star Standard’ status in recognition of its first class quality and a guarantee for its superb standards of quality and service.

This event will coincide with IPAX Europe Global, an exclusive networking exhibition targeting hotel industry professionals.
This recently-opened hotel, situated in the exclusive and aspirational Portals Nous area in Majorca, is Iberostar Hotels & Resorts’ first The Grand Collection establishment in the Mediterranean. With interiors designed exclusively by renowned Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, this 66 room hotel is the result of a perfect combination of sustainable architecture, avant-garde design and premium services. The mix of transparencies, touches of white and reflective surfaces blend together creating the fabulous design of this unique space.

In addition to its two penthouse double rooms, it also features six themed suites: two Naughty Suites for those wishing to live out their most secret fantasies, and a Stargazer Suite, where guests can venture beyond the stars and enjoy a one-of-a-kind astronomical experience. There is also a Games Suite where the facilities include a pinball machine, table football, video console and even a putting green on the terrace, a Heritage Suite for lovers of art and antiques, and a Spa Suite, designed to provide total relaxation.
