Adopting a fresh approach to architecture, culinary art and contemporary services, the new Portals Hills boutique hotel aims to provide a mix of “fashionable Miami South Beach meets charming Mediterranean”.
The winner of two categories in the 2014 European Property Awards (for new small hotel construction and residential development) the establishment is due to open this spring (although it is already taking reservations). It has been built on a hillside above the Mediterranean just minutes from Mallorca’s chic Puerto Portals marina – one of the island’s most exclusive areas.
It is described as being “luxurious but welcoming… (taking) a cosmopolitan approach, with a modern interpretation of architecture, culinary art and high-class services”.
Showcasing its Miami styling right from the moment guests enter the porte-cochère, the hotel’s all-white entrance hall is appointed with custom-designed furniture with lighting and accent pieces in gold, while the lobby features floor-to-ceiling windows framing Mediterranean views, white- and gold-patterned furnishings and the centrepiece of the room, a Hollywood-style staircase cascading down to the La Cabana pool bar and lounge. Overall, Portals Hills blends art deco architecture with international standards of service, in Mallorca’s high-end lifestyle ambience.
Signature services include a VIP concierge (for special restaurant reservations, personal shopping, gift advice, bespoke tours and event planning), private chef and luxury limousine service; and the amenities are highlighted by an infinity swimming pool, state-of-the-art Technogym, Ligne St Barth Wellness Lounge and Suite 32 private club.
