In the midst of the Royal Bendinat golf course and near the luxury Puerto Portals yacht harbor, the Lindner Golf Resort Portals Nous offers a hint of Africa, with a spacious wellness, fitness and beauty center; well-kept grounds complete with pool, sun lawns and a special children’s area; golf concierge desk; bar and two restaurants. A sunlit conference room provides ideal conditions for meetings and events.

The luxurious four-star resort is to undergo a €6m renovation and expansion during the winter, ahead of the 2019 holiday season. Ten new rooms will be built, while all others will be redesigned and renovated, although retaining the renowned African-inspired theme. After renovations, the resort will have 128 spacious, Africa-themed, non-smoking, air-conditioned rooms and suites with balcony or terrace, equipped with telephone, satellite TV, internet access, Wi-Fi minibar and room safe.

A larger, new-look lobby will incorporate a golf concierge desk, where guests can find information about the island’s golf courses and book tee times and transfers.

The current breakfast room will be reborn as a ‘vinotheque’: a large, open-plan African shabby-chic bar, offering local wines and tapas in addition to regular alcoholic and soft drinks.

The former golf bar will serve as a lounge and playroom, equipped with cozy, colorfully upholstered seating areas, pinball machines, games consoles and flat-screen TVs. The lounge will also be available for private booking, for meetings and events, for groups up to 30 people.

The new-look hotel will be fully open again in March 2019.
