This month’s pick is Hard Rock Hotel, Ibiza
With a flight time of just 2 hours and 15 minutes, a list of top notch accommodation to choose from, glorious beaches and one of the most packed clubbing calendars in the world, nothing will compare to a holiday in Ibiza.
Known as the ‘White Isle’, Ibiza is often described as one of the most beautiful Balearic Islands with its cove beaches and picturesque scenery. The party capital is also at the forefront of the fashion world, and is often celebrated for its iconic style and celebrity guests, making it one of the most sought-after locations in the Mediterranean.
You can find everything you are looking for on this island whether it’s the superclubs of Playa D’en Bossa and San Antonio, the quieter spots of Portinatx, the cobbled streets of Ibiza Town or the hippy markets of Es Cana, Ibiza caters to a range of holidaymakers.
Situated in the heart of the never-quiet resort of Playa D’en Bossa you’ll find the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza. As the first Hard Rock Hotel in Europe, it certainly lives up to its name with its rock memorabilia which you’ll find dotted around the hotel, open-air concert venue where you’ll find live performances from world-class rock idols and it’s very own Rock Shop where you can get your hands on authentic merchandise. Let’s be honest, Ibiza has taken Hard Rock Hotels to a whole new level.
Time for Fun
This 5-star property is the ultimate chill out hotel with its underwater sun loungers which are a perfect way to cool off if the Ibiza sun becomes unbearable, a Rock Spa where you can try a green-clay body wrap or a sea-salt scrub, and not forgetting the salon where guests can treat themselves to some pre-party pampering with a blow dry or a mani-pedi.
And if you’re an active person you don’t have to sacrifice your weekly workout sessions. This hotel has enough facilities to get your heart pumping, so you don’t have to worry about putting on any unwanted holiday pounds. With a fully-equipped Body Rock fitness centre you can work up a sweat before hitting Ibiza’s superclubs.
There are two pools to choose from at the Hard Rock Ibiza each with their own chill out music. Eden Pool is where you’ll find the underwater pool loungers while Rock Pool has its own swim-up bar and is situated in the main stage area. Both pools host some amazing pool parties complete with dancers and DJs who know exactly how to host a rock-style party.
Time for Indulgence
If you’re looking for pure indulgence you have come to right place. With something which caters to every taste whether you’re after a quick burger, fine dining or the finest Spanish cuisine, it’s all available at this hotel. So, if you’re after a quick snack we recommend the sports bar 3rd Half which serves up tasty finger foods. Or, if you’re looking for a traditional Spanish dining experience head to Estado Puro, which is celebrated for its experienced Spanish chef who serves up a range of authentic dishes each night, including the Spanish favourite tapas.
Still not impressed? Then why not try an above average dining experience at the hotel’s world-famous restaurant Sublimotion By Paco Roncero? This restaurant is limited to only 12 guests a night and its mix of state-of-the-art technology and culinary excellence makes it one of the most unique dining experiences in the whole of Ibiza.
But it doesn’t stop here. There’s also plenty of places where you can enjoy some pre-party drinking, and The Ninth is one of our favourites. With its rooftop setting which looks out across the beautiful Balearic Ocean, chic interiors and white and black colour scheme, this is the ultimate Ibiza chill out zone. Forget Café Mambo this is the best sunset spot in Ibiza. Alternatively, you can always head to the main stage bars which are ideal if you’re watching a live performance as no one wants to miss their favourite song while they desperately search for a bar.
Time for Relaxation
Plush accommodation is easy to find in Ibiza, but the Hard Rock Hotel offers something much more exclusive with their fully equipped Rock Suites. With a whirl pool bath, VIP services, a cocktail making station and your own outdoor terrace you can finally live like a rock star. But with 13 room types to choose from there is plenty of alternative options if you fancy something slightly more low-key.
Free Wi-Fi is available across the hotel.
The rooms in the tower tend to be bigger and offer some amazing views.
The hotel is situated right next to Ushuaia and just a 5 minute walk from superclub Space, so in terms of location you can’t get much better.
