Equal parts party and peaceful, the sunny islet of Ibiza caters to all. Discover where to sleep, what to do and where to eat this summer on the White Isle.
WHERE TO STAY:
With a pine forest to one side and the Mediterranean on the other, this ultra-modern resort reveals the other side of Ibiza: the side where natural beauty, local culture and relaxation reign supreme. Far from the island’s notorious nightclubs, 7Pines Resorts hangs cliffside and flaunts 186 one- and two-bedroom suites, a handful of seaside restaurants, and a first-class wellness spa.
The 152-room Nobu Hotel overlooks Ibiza’s Talamanca Beach, a picturesque bay just north of Ibiza town. Like all the other properties that sit within Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert DeNiro’s portfolio, gastronomy is at its heart. Guests can find Nobu’s signature Japanese fusion dishes, Mediterranean tapas, superfood salads and thirst-quenching cocktails.
Me Ibiza is located on the eastern side of the island, a 40-minute drive from Ibiza Old Town. As a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, visitors can expect nothing but the finest service, facilities and cuisine, all to the backdrop of dazzling views of the Balearic Sea. Highlights include the hotel’s exclusive Rooftop Bar and neighbouring Nikki Beach, a popular seafront restaurant with live entertainment and a menu of creative cocktails, sushi platters, Spanish favourites and more.
