While Ibiza remains ever-popular with the party crowd, times are definitely a changing, and a new breed of sleek, chic luxury properties are coming on stream that make the island an increasingly enticing proposition for events and incentive planners. We explore four hot new properties for #eventprofs on the beautiful Balearic island…
Although it’s had a presence on the island since 2010 with a variety of W music events, this summer will see Marriott’s hip W brand open its first property. Owned by Inversions Hoteleres Ebza S.L., the 162-room property will be located in the buzzing beachside neighbourhood of Santa Eulalia del Río, close to Ibiza’s beaches, nightclubs and rural inland attractions. Three distinct concepts designed for dining, drinking and relaxing will be complemented by a lively rooftop sunset bar and WET Deck (the brand’s signature take on the poolside scene), direct beach access and ‘Chiringuito’ beach bar. To detox from the night before, guests can enjoy the spacious 4,000 square foot Away Spa with seven private treatment rooms and the brand’s signature FIT gym experience.
BLESS Hotel Ibiza
Hot on the heels of launching its first hotel in Madrid, the new BLESS brand from Palladium Hotel Group is preparing to make its debut in Ibiza. Set on an exclusive beachfront location in Cala Nova, part of the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu, the new hotel is just 25 minutes from Ibiza’s city centre and ideally located for exploring the surrounding picturesque countryside, pristine beaches and traditional villages, as well as a flourishing artistic and cultural movement, including the famous hippie markets. It will offer 151 rooms and suites each with elegant décor inspired by Coco Chanel, the latest technology and a furnished balcony or terrace with views of the Mediterranean Sea. Facilities include a sky lounge, a pool bar, two infinity pools, a spa and gym, a spacious convention centre and high-end gastronomic experience at 10 Michelin star winner Chef Martín Berasategui’s signature restaurant, Etxeko.
Amàre Beach Hotel Ibiza
Also opening its doors this summer in the Bou Cove in San Antonio Bay is the 366-room Amàre Beach Hotel Ibiza, boasting a rooftop infinity pool, two additional outdoor pools, rooftop cocktail bar with live music and two restaurants, as well as a beach club. Hayaca terrace offers Latin-American fusion dishes designed by Michelin-starred chef Mauricio Giovanini. The rooftop dining experience includes music and signature cocktails created by Spanish bartender Diego Cabrera. Alternatively, Mare Nostrum, offers guests a choice of Mediterranean flavours. To celebrate sunset, Amàre Ibiza has created the Sunset Ritual, an experience where guests can enjoy a show of music and light, which changes as the sun slowly disappears over the horizon, after which the Amàre team light the firepit.
7Pines Resort Ibiza
Reopening for the summer season on 1 May, 7Pines Ibiza debuted in 2018 and this year guests can also enjoy the 7Pines five-star experience on board one of the property’s new luxury Pershing Yachts. Nestled within a pine forest on the west coast of Ibiza, the resort is designed in Ibicenco village-style, with 186 one and two-bedroom suites spread out across the two-floor white-wash houses, set amongst gardens. Contemporary meeting facilities are located on the cliff top above the main reception building, with floor to ceiling windows offering natural light, and an outdoor terrace for coffee breaks. F&B options include The Pershing Terrace, which was conceived together with Pershing to emulate the Pershing 70 yacht, The View Restaurant, which as the name suggest offers stunning views over the Mediterranean, and The Cone Club.
