Some friends were looking to book holidays in Ibiza in October half term and they asked me for some recommendations on places to stay and restaurants. So here are the places that I enjoyed the most this summer. I also added a little “Sustainable White Dresses” edit in case you need one before heading to the White Island.
Where to Stay
Although I haven’t stayed in a hotel in Ibiza in a long time, I visited the following ones and they all looked amazing.
7 Pines Stunning sunset views and great restaurants within the Hotel. Close to the best beaches and oldest Beach clubs.
Nobu very cool vibes and great location close to all the happening places if that is what you are looking for.
Atzaro Agroturismo, First finca turned into a luxurious hotel with a fabulous spa and organic gardens.
Hacienda Na Xamena with its sensational spa and secluded location is perfect to unwind and has spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Six Senses Newly opened with amazing restaurants perfect decor all sustainably decorated with organic and local produce.
Day Restaurants and Beach Clubs.
El Silencio at Cala Molí is a newly opened restaurant. Food is absolutely delicious and beautifully presented with French, Spanish and Argentine vibes. Sunset and golden hour are perfect and the beach club pool has an amazing vibe full of fun. It is a pebbles beach but the view and the sunsets make up for it.
Cala Bassa beach Club in Cala Bassa and El Chiringuito in Es caballet are our all time favourites. Both perfectly located and impeccably decorated, great boutiques and scrumptious food in super fun atmosphere.
Beso beach in Salinas probably has the best old school music mixed with ibiza techno vibes. Located in Salinas beach with perfect crystal clear water and white sand. true paradise. Food and boutique are quite good too.
Casa Jondal has the most incredible culinary experience with Michelin chef Rafa Zafra and his sensational cousine.
Beach House is the best place to chill if you have kids. they love their beautifull and thoughtfully arranged kids club.
La Escollera, is open all year round and although there is no beach, the view is amazing and the food is super delicious.
Amante in Sol d’en Serra and its sister Aiyanna in Cala Nova are part of the same group, both very cool, beautifully decorated, cool boutique and good food, both are very popular so book in advance. They also do healthy breakfast + Yoga sessions.
Part of Atzaro Hotel, but in Cala Nova is Atzaro Beach Club, they have live Bossa nova music and an unsupervised kids area at the back, they also have a good boutique.
Beach House (both with very conveniemnt kids clubs). I have always felt that Ibiza is very accommodating with kids, so even if you go to places without kids clubs, there is always an area where they can play (unattended) while you have your lunch or dinner.
Lio Ibiza at Marina Botafoc, has the best dinner show of the Island and it is open until the 3rd week of October, the closing party is not to be missed!
Laylah very fun close to Pacha area with candela’s lit dinner and delicious food to share.
For inland country style restaurants you can try Atzaro, La Paloma in San Lorenzo and Macao in Santa Getrudis. A mi Manera Ibiza is the sister restaurant to the one in Formentera and has a lovely Italian flare garden with their little orchard on site. Finca La Plaza in the heart of Santa Gertrudis and Aubergine in San Juan are beautifull too.
Finally, we didn’t get to go to Casa Maca this year but I have heard it was amazing.
Restaurant La Paloma in San Lorenzo has a gorgeous boutique and Atzaro the Restaurant at the hotel.
Las Dalias Hippy Market is boho dressing paradise, but make sure to check in advance when it opens and take some cash as its the only way to pay for parking.
Visiting Ibiza Town is a must, the old walls are very inspiring. There are also lots of cute boutiques. For luxury shopping head to Marina Botafoch where you will find some luxury pop up shops, showcasing their cruise collection like Dior, Valentino, Gucci, Hermano Sceverino and Dolche and Gabbana.
I hope I have covered all the basics, however Im very happy to answer any questions that you might have so please feel free to get in touch!
