Highly commended for protecting biodiversity: Portblue Club Pollentia Resort & Spa, Mallorca
Our 'hotel of the month' competition provides a way for accommodation providers who have achieved excellence in sustainability to be recognised for their work. Our theme in May is biodiversity and the 2021 winner was Nissi Beach Resort due to their excellent work to protect and rejuvenate sand dunes in Cyprus. However, we were also extremely impressed with the work Portblue Club Pollentia Resort & Spa has done in Mallorca to help promote and protect an important local conservation area.
Since 2014 the resort has had a collaboration agreement with the s'Albufereta Nature Reserve and the Balearic Ministry of Environment to help improve and promote this unique coastal area of Pollença Bay. The special landscape along with a plethora of bird and plant species make this an important ecological area for the Balearic Islands and a wonderful attraction for people to visit.
Portblue Club Pollentia Resort & Spa provide an access point for people wishing to visit a nature observatory within the reserve and they have created an interpretation centre where both their guests and members of the public can learn more about the area and make donations to help fund the conservation work being undertaken, with the resort matching these annual donations.
They also undertake activities to eradicate invasive plant species from immediate surrounds of the reserve, thus helping biodiversity thrive within the borders of the protected area. At the same time they support reserve management whenever they can with a variety of other activities such as monitoring conservation efforts and wildlife activity, creating and maintaining signage and managing educational installations.
