Nobu Hotel to Open in Ibiza

The pine tree—covered island of Ibiza has become synonymous with out-of-control parties and misbehaving celebrities. But the Spanish destination has another side to it that goes beyond this stereotype. It’s also the home of stylish properties that serve as serene sanctuaries to weary guests.

One highly anticipated opening is the 152-room Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, which will welcome travelers to the white-sand beach of Talamanca Bay by the end of June. A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the property’s interiors soothe the senses. Its sun-lit rooms showcase soft furnishings chosen from a palette of earth tones and off-whites, punctuated by artisan ceramics and strategically placed hand-blown pendant lights. Floor-to-ceiling windows and open terraces bring impressive views of the glittering Mediterranean and the numerous super yachts that have made it home.

Named after its founder, chef Nobu Matsuhisa, the property runs on the mantra of laid-back luxury, which is why breakfasts are served only during the guests’ preferred time. Travelers can savor Matsuhisa’s Japanese fusion dishes at the accommodation’s signature restaurant Nobu, or opt for contemporary Mexican cuisine at Peyotito. An on-demand mixologist will be on hand to concoct everyone’s drinks of choice.

Wellness journeys and fitness workouts can be found at Six Senses Spa, the first of its kind to open in Ibiza. Families with children in tow can rest assured that there will be a plethora of activities to choose from, such as foraging sessions and cooking lessons at the Ibiza Bay’s Kids Club.

For those who prefer to spend their nights in hedonistic activities, the property is a short drive away from the trendy clubs of Marina Botafoch. But with a place as picturesque as this, who would want to spend their days in bed, recovering from a hangover?
