Boutique hotels in Ibiza: a stylish sojourn on the White Isle
A boutique hotel in the historical quarter of Ibiza Town
Rooms at this hotel take influence from classic Ibizan style, with some featuring exposed stone walls, dark wood fittings and terracotta floor tiles. Go for the Double Standard to bask in your very own hydromassage bath, or splash out on a Terrace Suite to recline in a tiled open-air hot tub as the sun comes up.
Metres away from the cathedral in Dalt Vila, Ibiza’s Old Town, La Torre del Canónigo is a superb spot for soaking up the traditional Catalan culture. It’s also a 5 minute drive from iconic clubs like Pachá, Lío and Cipriani, which are especially easy to reach using the hotel’s transfer service. Experience an evening under the neon lights, then relax the next morning beside the hotel’s rooftop pool with its heady marina vistas.
Breakfast is a leisurely affair at Adolfo’s Corner, featuring freshly baked seeded bread home-made from organic flour. Fill up here on dishes such as a hearty omelette that blends local tomatoes with sweet garlic, Bellota Iberian ham and truffled Meaux brie. Or head to La Torre for a morning feast of caviar, oysters and champagne with a view of the bay stretching out beneath you; it’s indulgence incarnate.
A cool and kitsch boutique hotel in Ibiza
Salute the sun at the morning yoga class. Then, spend the day lounging next to the coral-pink pool, stylishly offset by the hotel’s lime-green exterior. Why not intersperse your sunbathing sessions with a poolside massage? As evening falls, welcome it in with one of 30 cocktails available at the bar. Pick a favourite, and have it delivered by a waiter to your bright-white sunbed. In true Ibiza style, poolside parties are regularly organised at the hotel, with performances from cutting-edge DJs.
Irreverent touches, such as an outdoor shower shaped like a martini glass and towels embroidered with flamingos, are dotted throughout Tropicana Ibiza. Yet the rooms are restful and relaxing, painted in neutral colours to promote beauty sleep. Whip up a snack in kitchenettes featuring retro-style Smeg fridges, or head to the hotel’s restaurant for a lime-infused ceviche dish to tantalise your taste buds.
A luxury boutique hotel with marina views in Ibiza’s Old Town
Sir Joan sits between the backdrop of Ibiza Old Town’s UNESCO-listed buildings and views of the azure Mediterranean coast. Each of its 38 rooms is soundproofed for a restful night’s sleep, and every one opens out onto a balcony with vistas of the yacht-lined marina. They’re also decorated with stylish sculptures, Spanish literature and photographs of Ibiza’s past. Additional treats such as Ayurvedic essential oils – for spritzing onto your Egyptian cotton sheets – a pillow menu and a gift box brimming with treats await.
Critically acclaimed Baranowitz + Kronenberg and Ribas & Ribas Architects designed the hotel, and influences from the seaside and Ibiza’s bohemian appeal shine through in details such as the wooden flooring sourced from ships. Order hip burgers at The Butcher, where you’ll sit on wood and metal picnic tables surrounded by palms. A mint and vanilla milkshake spiked with whiskey rounds off the Angus meat nicely. Or sample Peruvian-Japanese fusion food with a view of the hotel’s pool at Izakaya.
Sir Joan has a curated selection of distinctive activities. Try a guided ride on a Vietnamese bamboo bike or a cooking class using local produce, led by a former chef from Copenhagen’s Michelin-starred Noma restaurant.
A pastoral boutique hotel near Ibiza’s Old Town
Just a 5 minute drive from the bustle of Ibiza’s Old Town lie the bucolic surroundings of Xereca Hotel. A former dairy finca turned luxury haven, this 5-star hotel is set within an aromatic orange garden. Choose from nine rooms – or two sprawling suites – each with a Nespresso coffee machine, rain shower and views of the verdant countryside. These restful spaces are decorated in neutrals, with wooden beams in the ceilings revealing their 15th-century farmhouse origins.
Spend a morning stretching at Xereca’s open-sided Awa Yoga centre, where gentle meditation or more challenging Vinyasa Flow sessions are accompanied by a view. Half an hour or so here will have you working up enough of an appetite for the gourmet delicacies at the hotel restaurant, where there’s an emphasis on homegrown ingredients with a Taiwanese twist. Try the tuna tataki with sesame seeds, miso cream and mango and lime salad to refresh your palate. And if it’s a special occasion, book a private dining room that leads out onto the garden.
Breakfast is an artisanal blend of organic cheeses, juices, nuts and seasonal fruits. Order yours picnic style to take elsewhere on the island, or eat it overlooking the tranquil pool area next to the hotel’s characterful windmill.
A luxurious countryside boutique hotel in Ibiza
Natural serenity abounds at Ca Na Xica, due to the surrounding olive trees that have been planted here for thousands of years. Spend time unwinding on the artisan-crafted furniture in your light and airy space or on the private patio, then head for a facial at the hotel’s spa – which is exclusively reserved for guests. The open-air spa space offers the unforgettable experience of a professional massage amid Ibiza’s natural beauty. The lengthy pool, which flanks the front of the hotel, has a bar that’s ideal for sipping on cool drinks in the sunshine.
While a handful of the 20 rooms are traditional in design, with dark-wood shutters and terracotta tiling lending a country-farmhouse aesthetic, the hotel’s 14 Premier Suites are decidedly contemporary. These modern rooms – created in 2015 – are set in white cubes dotted across the grounds.
When hunger strikes, Spanish-inspired specialities abound at Salvia, where you’ll find traditional dishes such as charcoal-grilled octopus accompanied by locally sourced scallops, potato purée and Iberian pig jowl. Dine in serene surroundings on plush pale grey seating with whitewashed walls as your backdrop and the manicured gardens of the sprawling estate in front of you.
A boutique hotel in Ibiza with eclectic decor
While the building of this hotel dates back to 1890, with authentic features including ceilings carved from Ibizan juniper wood, the interiors have been restored to thoroughly modern standards of luxury. The eclectic décor is enlivened further by a mix of antiques – like the collection of ornately etched grandfather clocks – picked up by the owner on her travels. On arrival, you’ll be welcomed by her and the rest of the family, including the two friendly dogs.
The Mediterranean daily menu changes regularly at the in-house Cas Gasi Restaurant. One day, you’ll be sampling free-range roast chicken and potatoes Ibicenco style; the next it’s a tuna salad brightened up by strawberries and edible flowers. But there’s one consistency: the organic vegetables are grown in the hotel gardens for freshness.
Despite a select number of rooms (all whitewashed walls, damask bed linen and terracotta floors), the facilities here are extensive. There are racks full of fashion-forward clothing at the mini boutique, yoga classes on the open-air deck and two outdoor swimming pools to choose from.
A compact boutique hotel in Ibiza with seven delightful rooms
Designed by interiors expert Joan Lao, Hotel Ses Piteras is a contemporary space with an air of exclusivity. The pool is surrounded by palms, yucca trees and bougainvilleas to engender a blissful setting, as well as a bar and restaurant. Sample stylish meals like Blue-fin tuna tartar cone with avocado and pickled shallots before heading for a fruity cocktail on rustic raffia chairs at the chill-out terrace.
Each of the seven rooms has its own design scheme, yet all are stylishly pared back with characteristics like marble-effect walls, glazed hydromassage pools and sizeable picture windows. The cutting-edge ambience continues at the spa, with its chrome, dark wood and deep grey colour scheme. Sit in the Turkish bath, sauna, Jacuzzi or solarium, then select from a gamut of luxurious treatments. The Eastern-inspired Ayurvedic massages are much recommended – especially when followed by a siesta on a canopied four-poster Bali bed.
A rural boutique hotel in Ibiza in a former farmhouse
For a holiday in Ibiza’s interior, the family-owned Hotel Rural Can Lluc provides a warm welcome. Settle down in rooms with features preserved from the original 19th-century farmhouse – including rustic fireplaces – updated with 21st-century amenities such as power showers and Jacuzzis.
De-stress with a massage in a canopy-covered treatment bed overlooking the pool, then relish the heat of the bubbling water in the outdoor hot tub. Whether you’re blissed out on Bali beds in the manicured grounds or relaxing at the hotel’s viewpoint with a sunset vista of San Antonio Bay, there are plenty of ways to catch the Ibizan rays here.
Feeling energetic? Get your heart rate going on the treadmill at the conservatory gym with its countryside panoramas. Alternatively, a 25 minute trail around Can Lluc leads you up towards the woods above the estate. To explore further away, the hotel organises mountain biking, kayaking and hiking expeditions, so you can soak up some of the White Isle’s stunning scenery with ease.
