Turquoise waters, warm sand, and hidden coves—these are the gifts that Ibiza has that makes it irresistible to travelers. The Spanish party destination continues to hold its allure, in spite of the emergence of other Mediterranean attractions such as Hvar. Which is why the Balearic island continues to attract new restaurants and decked-out accommodations to cater to the throngs of tourists who have made it their go-to paradise.
In tranquil Cala Nova Bay, rustic Aiyanna Ibiza will open in mid-June, promising to offer a different take on healthy bites. The menu will have what it calls “Western Mediterranean food meets East,” featuring vegetarian fare made with ingredients grown from its own garden and organic meat. The place will offer yoga and Pilates sessions for fitness aficionados and even art exhibits and live performances of local acts.
The island won’t be complete without its clubs, and it has just rolled the red carpet for a new one. Hï Ibiza, located in party central Playa d’en Bossa, promises to bring the most creative celebrations that guests will ever see. From now until September, it will host a series of parties called Glitterbox (from US$50) featuring DJs such as Kings of Tomorrow, David Morales, and Karizma.
Out-of-towners will have plenty of luxury accommodations to choose from should they wish to visit. Over on the west coast, between Cala Conta and Cala Codolar, the soon-to-open 7 Pines Resort (rates available upon request) offers 195 generously sized suites spruced up with Mediterranean design elements . Guests who wish to have the full tropical paradise experience can ask the property to arrange for private jet charters and yacht trips.
A stone’s throw away from Talamanca beach is the more intimate Sir Joan (US$841 per night). Each of its 38 rooms come fitted with wooden yacht flooring and stainless steel wall panels, which, when hit by light, create a wave-like visual illusion. Carefully chosen local sculptures, Spanish books, and vintage Ibiza photos decorate guests’ quarters, which offer spectacular views of the marina and Old Town.
