Located a little over 6.5 miles from Palma de Mallorca and with direct access to the beach, the Iberostar Grand Portals Nous boasts an outstanding location in a paradisiacal setting.
The interior of the new hotel is the work of top Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, who’s internationally renowned for his iconic interiors. With the opening of this new hotel, he’s once again revolutionized the design concept, leaving his unmistakable mark on the Iberostar Grand Portals Nous.

The gastronomy at Astir echoes the sensations produced by the breathtaking cliffs and rugged coves that form a sharp contrast with the beaches that line the Mallorcan coastline. Characterized by a clearly Mallorcan identity, this restaurant pays its own special tribute to the island’s rich cultural history: the results of the tireless work of local producers who pour their hearts and souls into offering the authentic essence of unique flavors.
The restaurant’s new chef, Iván Crespo, famous for his international experience, has designed a menu inspired by Mallorca’s rich cultural history, tailored to suit all tastes, and paired with the finest selection of wines and sparkling wines.
Culinary delights are paired to perfection with an extensive and meticulously selected wine list, which adds further dimension to the choice of dishes. The list includes a refined range made by unique wineries that specialize in producing gloriously grand wines on small plots of land.
