Wave Of Change
The essence of Iberostar has always been the ocean, with our beginnings in the Mediterranean island of Palma de Mallorca and with over 80% of our resorts being oceanfront. As such, the conservation and protection of the ocean is essential to us. Wave of Change is a pioneering initiative to reduce the use of plastics, to promote responsible consumption of seafood and improve coastal health.
We happen to be huge proponents of health and wellness. For the mind and body, our Aliveness concept invites you to disconnect from your day-to-day and reconnect with yourself, your loved ones and the environment around you. Through activities and entertainment, such as sunrise and sunset beach walks, social hours and local cuisine cooking workshops, guests discover new aspects of themselves.
Encompassing our Honest Food philosophy, guests will experience all-inclusive culinary delights engineered by an Iberostar nutritionist that incorporate healthy, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Responsible sourcing and sustainability are key in the preparation process to ensure the highest quality gastronomic experience. Whether eating seasonal lobster or a craft burger by the pool, dishes are prepared daily by our acclaimed chefs.
