Combining work and relaxation, that’s what I did last week at the Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous Mallorca (www.lindnermallorca.com), a real pearl on the Balearic Islands that borders on a wonderful golf course. After a smooth check-in and a friendly welcome with a glass of chilled cava, I am really curious to discover my room … I’m certainly not disappointed: a spacious oasis equipped with flat screen TV, sofa, air conditioning, Wi-Fi and desk – working holiday remember – and a very spacious bathroom with bath and shower. A fantastic panorama from the terrace shows a splendid view of an inviting swimming pool with bright blue water. A comprehensive breakfast ensures that you can start the day in an energetic way. Just as well because there is a range of activities to explore! Besides the golf course adjacent to the resort, you can easily test the other 23 greens of the island via the hotel services (shuttle, reduced fee, rental of equipment). But there is more: biking, hiking, fitness, excursions etc.
The hotel has two restaurants, but I chose ‘Es Romani’. A good choice, with the best tapas! Of course there is a selection of the most tasteful local wines on the menu. Good food that tastes even better due to an extremely friendly service.
Naturally, the resort offers ample opportunity for MICE activities and its strategic location – 10 km from the capital Palma and 20 km from the airport – may be an interesting alternative to swap a rainy Belgium for a sunny Majorca during the wintertime. From a Belgian airport you’re barely two hours on the road. Sometimes you are stuck in Belgian traffic jams longer to cover a much shorter distance. Thus, the Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous Mallorca is always a wise choice … for leisure or for MICE activities. Wood Approved! – Erik Wood
