Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay
Carrer de Ses Feixes, 52, Ibiza
The Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay delivers a classic hotel experience, with the luxury turned up. We’re talking two saltwater pools, a luxe Six Senses spa, a John Frieda hair salon, and multiple restaurants—including its Japanese fusion namesake. Most of the rooms have views over Talamanca Bay, plus a contemporary, beachy vibe that’s a departure from Nobu’s usual minimalism. But what the hotel lacks in originality it makes up for with world-class amenities: rainfall showers, organic cotton bedding, and an excellent concierge. The location is ideal—right outside of Ibiza town and highly accessible to other parts of the island.
Carretera de Ibiza, Santa Eulalia
Not just another farmhouse turned hotel, Finca Legado stands out thanks to the creative vision of its owner, designer Andi Lackner. A well-known event organizer from Vienna, Lackner dreamed up a countryside paradise that feels more like your own (dreamy) private home than a hotel. Lush gardens overflow with hot-pink bougainvillea, olive trees, and rosebushes. And there’s a quiet terrace hidden around almost every corner. We particularly like the pool beds: The low metal platforms are topped with cushions covered in fabrics designed by Lackner himself.
Carretera de Portinatx, Ibiza
Overlooking Portinatx harbor on the rural northern edge of Ibiza, this former hostel is the creation of ex-basketball player Pierre Traversier and Roze de Witte, a former magazine editor. Adorned with curios from around the world, Los Enamorados has a distinctly ’70s, bohemian vibe. The hotel has a stunning terrace devoted to sun worshipping by day and gin and tonics by night. Guest rooms come with snorkels, beach towels, and—in a bold move—no televisions. Ibiza is famous for its trendy boutiques, but Traversier and de Witte have created an Aladdin’s cave where you can buy international gems (like Japanese kimonos and Balinese textiles), local crafts, and pretty much everything you see in the hotel.
Carr. de Forada, Ibiza
A tiny sign stamped with a G is the only indication you’ve arrived. Set in the rolling farmlands near San Rafael, this secluded finca has been reimagined by Design Hotels founder Claus Sendlinger into an earthy, restrained retreat that doesn’t skimp on luxury. The pool is perched on a hillside and views stretch over the fields and olive groves to San Antonio Bay. La Granja’s interior oozes cool Danish minimalism—low furniture, a navy-and-taupe palette, zero clutter, and cool concrete floors. Bathrooms are stocked with locally made oils (in dainty glass bottles), and single-use plastics are not a thing. If you can’t secure a reservation—there are only nine rooms—book chef José Catrimán’s farmer’s table dinner. The multicourse meal, served communally beneath the pine trees, celebrates the best of La Granja’s garden bounty.
Ca Na Xica
Carretera a es Port de Sant Miquel, Km. 10.2, Sant Miquel de Balansat
While at only 20-suites strong, this gorgeous retreat takes up an impressive swath of landscape (the indoor-outdoor layout of the hotel makes great use of it all). Both the kitted-out spa and Salvia restaurant merit a visit even if you chose to stay in town.
Passeig Joan Carles I 1, Ibiza
This newly opened, modern, 38-room hotel overlooking the port is the perfect home base from which to explore during the day and party at night.
