VIP Guide to Ibiza
Where to stay in 2020?
The winding pathways of Eivissa are soaked in history & culture, so why not fully immerse yourself by staying in this ancient Mediterranean city? It’s the perfect place to stay for those looking to be close to a variety of restaurants and bars, and an idyllic base for exploring the rest of the island.
Ibiza Town is split into 3 main parts; Old Town, New Town & the Marina. Old Town is home to the citadel Dalt Vila, where you will find winding cobbled streets lined with shops, restaurants and bars. If you’re looking to learn more about Ibiza’s history – explore the museums within the walls of Dalt Vila, before climbing all the way to the top for awe-inspiring views across the entire city and beyond. If you’re in need of pre-club drinks, then wander into one of the lively bars along the harbor – the perfect place to people watch and daydream about owning one of the incredible yachts moored water side before heading out for the night.
New Town is the flatter part of the city, well known for its shopping, hidden tapas bars and the beautiful Plaza Del Parque. Finally, Marina Botafoch sits at the opposite end of the city from Dalt Vila, offering upmarket and trendy restaurants and bars, including STK, Heart & Lio, as well as the infamous Pacha nightclub.
For those looking for an even more relaxed Ibizan vibe, the beautiful suburb of Jesus is just a couple of kilometers away. Jesus is surrounded by a multitude of stunning villas, perfect for groups of all sizes to enjoy a holiday away from hotels.
Blink and you’ll miss it, but tucked away behind the giant that is Privilege nightclub, is a traditional Spanish village called San Rafael. With its beautiful 18th century church and stunning views all the way to Ibiza Town and Dalt Vila, this quiet area is perfect for those looking to retreat after a long day in the sun or long night partying until the sun comes up.
This particular area is filled with large private villas, simply perfect for group holidays, and is situated on the road between Eivissa and San Antonio. A tranquil environment and awe-inspiring views from the VIP villas are just a couple of reasons to choose to stay in San Rafael. San Rafael is also home to the well-known restaurants C’an Pilot and Las Dos Lunas, ideal for those looking for amazing culinary experience whilst on their holidays.
Famed as one of the most chic towns on Ibiza, Santa Gertrudis is a hive of boho shops, charming bars and rustic restaurants. Located right in the heart of Ibiza, this old church town can be found full of residents and tourists alike, either browsing the stores in the pedestrian friendly plaza, or watching the world go by whilst sitting at one the many bar terraces.
Sculptors, musicians and artists flocked to Santa Gertrudis in the 60’s and 70’s, and the ‘Notting Hill’ bohemian vibe has stayed ever since. With recent modifications and expansions around the area, you’ll find a beautiful collection of VIP hotels and villas, perfect for an extended stay on Ibiza. As well as this, there are an array of traditional and fine dining restaurant options in Santa Gertrudis and in the surrounding areas, including Bambuddha, Nagai and Bar Costa.
Situated on the southwest of the island, Es Cubells is a small coastline town, brimming with large VIP villas boasting stunning ocean views. The town is host to only a few shops, bars and restaurants, making it the perfect area to quietly retreat for your Ibiza vacation.
Closeby you’ll find some of the most picturesque beaches, such as Cala des Cubells, Ses Boques or Cala Llentrisca and, a bit further away, Es Torrent and Porroig. All of these beaches are often completely empty, due to the sometimes difficult access, but worth a trip if you are staying in the area or have hired a car.
