“Cas Gasi is a large farmhouse that was converted into a beautiful agritourism hotel, with 10 modest rooms, two suites and a restaurant with an organic menu. Guests have included Robert DeNiro and Kate Moss.”
Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Ibiza.
“Combining Japanese Zen with tribal Africa and farmhouse Ibiza, Atzaró is the ultimate in rural-Ibiza luxury. Some rooms have private terraces, fireplaces and four-poster beds. Besides a well-regarded restaurant (set menu €30), there’s a divine spa in fragrant Mediterranean gardens.”
“Located high on a promontory overlooking Na Xamena Bay northwest of Ciudad de Ibiza, this utterly beautiful hotel is precisely what every magazine art director dreams that Ibiza should be like. The rooms are spacious and flooded with light. The sea seems to be all around.”
Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Ibiza.
“This laid-back luxury retreat is a small paradise within a paradise, and the best place to discover—or rediscover—the so-called White Island: wabi sabi-inspired design, serene swimming pools (one of them is the largest on the island), regular yoga sessions, fusion cuisine… If there’s one place where you can find inner peace and connect with yourself, it’s Oku Ibiza.”
Featured on CN Traveler’s Hotlist 2021.
“Santi Marí Ferrer remade his family’s finca (farmhouse), with its massive stone walls and native savina wood beams, into one of the island’s friendliest and most comfortable country inns. Rooms are huge, with original stone arches separating sleeping and bathroom areas.”
Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Ibiza.
“Six Senses Ibiza is a place to truly rest, refuel, and reset. New arrivals enjoy a brief but energizing shamanic smoke-cleansing ceremony before floating down into the hotel proper, an earthy enclave peppered with swaying rattan lanterns and bamboo-clad roofs. The spa is spot-on, the infinity pool sublime, and guests can paddleboard or kayak from a ladder directly into the sea.”
Featured on CN Traveler’s Hotlist 2021.
“Some of the world’s most prolific street artists (N4T4, INKIE, JEROM) have pooled their creativity in this design hotel with an alternative edge. The roomy, mural-splashed suites sport clever backlighting, proper workstations and balconies with terrific views.”

More things to do in Ibiza
Located in the Balearic Islands, off the southern coast of Spain, Ibiza is world-renowned for its nightclubs and party scene. However, the vibrant nightlife is just the beginning of Ibiza’s charm and appeal. Between stunning landscapes, incredible beaches, and rich culture, Ibiza is a must-visit European destination.
Due to its location between Spain and Africa, Ibiza was a coveted trading post and colony for many years. Throughout its history, Ibiza has attracted the Ancient Greeks, Romans, Catalans, Moors, and Phoenicians. This island changed hands several times before the 1200s, falling under the Vandals and the Byzantines, and then ruled for hundreds of years by the Moors.
In 1235, the Moors were conquered by the Catalans, who, in turn, took over Ibiza. At this time, King James I conquered this island and immediately deported the Muslim population, replacing them with Christian colonists from Girona. Ibiza was self-governed until 1715, when King Philip V from Spain abolished its autonomy.
In the early 1900s, members of the Surrealist movement flocked to Ibiza, where they established alternative lifestyle communities based on creativity and intellectualism, eventually leading to the hippie movements in the 1950s and 1960s. These influences are still present today, especially in the Ibiza Old Town and throughout the numerous weekly craft markets around the island. Democracy arrived in Ibiza in the 1970s, and with this came the Statute of Autonomy of the Balearic Islands. Today, Ibiza, along with Mallorca, Formentera, and Menorca, is part of the Balearic Autonomous Community.
In recent years, Ibiza has become a world-renowned party destination. The summer months welcome famous DJs that attract millions of visitors every year. Ibiza Town, in particular, is one of this island’s premier nightclub destinations. While strolling the cobblestone streets, you can find top-notch clubs, like Pacha and Amnesia. San Antonio, also known as Sant Antony de Portmany, is another excellent area for bar-hopping and dancing. San Antonio has it all, whether you want live music, DJs, rowdy clubs, or fancy cocktails.
Other than partying, Ibiza Town has several fantastic attractions and sites. The town is split into two sections: Dalt Vila and Eixample. Dalt Vila, also known as the fortified Old Town, is perched above the water and boasts a great restaurant scene, historic buildings, and panoramic views. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to several art galleries, museums, and the Cathedral of Nuestra Senora de las Nieves.
Throughout the island, you will find stunning beaches of every kind, from rocky shores to white sands. If you want a quiet beach with access to cafes and shopping, check out Ses Salines. For a rocky coast and dramatic scenery, head to Cala Jondal or Sol D’en Serra. Beaches near Ibiza Town include Playa D’en Bossa and Talamanca, two excellent swimming areas. In addition to the gorgeous coastline, you will also find plenty of historic villages throughout Ibiza, like Santa Agnes de Corona and Sant Mateu d’Albarca. Whether you want a tropical oasis, a dose of history, or just some really fantastic drinks, Ibiza has something for everyone!
