There is one thing in this world that we can be certain about, and that is that Mallorca is a paradise. A moderately sized island but full of charming little towns in the interior, an impressing mountain range, the Serra de Tramuntana, which was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO, its stunning capital city, Palma de Mallorca, bursting with life and with a vibrant cultural scene yet still maintaining its historical heritage, and not to forget the coast line which can’t be compared to any other in this world, featuring endless white sandy beaches, small hidden rocky coves and omnipresent crystal-clear waters in all kinds of shades of turquoise.

Portals Nous, the town our hotel is located in, dates back to the 1930’s and has turned itself into a highly-sought after destination both for tourists and residents thanks to its proximity to the capital and the glamorous port of Puerto Portals.
Santa Catalina is probably one of Palma’s most famous and most popular districts. Historically, due to its proximity to the sea, it was the fishermen’s quarter, the typical one or two-story houses with Mallorcan wooden shutters still remain standing from these times.
Nowadays, Santa Catalina is not only famous for its characteristic windmills and its local “mercat” with the best local products, but it’s also famous for its “tardeo”, a get together of friends or co-workers after work in the many bars along the beautiful streets.
When you’re planning on coming to Mallorca in spring, take a trip to the centre of the island, where you will be surprised by the lush green fields dotted with blue and red flowers. Discover Sineu, a little gem in the interior with an abundance of history. Go on a Wednesday to live Mallorca’s biggest, traditional farmer’s market with goods like fruit and vegetables, arts, handcrafts, pottery and live animals.
Son Marroig is located on the windy road between Valldemossa and Deià. It is the former manor house of the archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, and nowadays is probably one of the most emblematic and romantic spots on the island.
Cala Mondragó is a shining pearl amongst all of the precious beaches of Mallorca. Located in the east of Mallorca in a natural park, it captivates with fine white sand, shallow crystal-clear waters, and its numerous surrounding pine trees.
