The town of Ibiza is full of charm thanks to its Medieval architecture, scenic harbour and artisan boutiques. Here are some of the best places to stay in Ibiza town.
Set in the islands’ beautiful natural surroundings, Pure House Ibiza is a secluded sanctuary a stone’s throw away from Ibiza town. Ideally suited for guests wanting to experience the dizzy energy of town while still having a restful retreat to return to, PureHouse Ibiza is the perfect blending of the two. The rooms are carefully decorated with crisp white interiors and the rustic features of the finca add a sense of authenticity to the lodgings. The hotel’s team offers a personable service, from owner Caroline down to the friendly help desk and are happy to offer recommendations for local activities as well as some of the area’s best eateries.
This charming boutique hotel is located in the heart of Ibiza’s Dalt Vila or Old Town, within minutes of the town’s most picturesque sites. The hotel oozes Mediterranean flair, with white stone walls, wrought iron furniture and a blissfully uncluttered approach to decoration. Couples will particularly appreciate the suites, which come with a balcony and their own private jacuzzi overlooking the harbour.
Dating back to 1904, the boutique Hotel Mirador de Dalt Vila oozes period charm and is surrounded by the city’s ancient historic walls. Numerous original artworks and genuine antique furnishings are scattered throughout what was once a family townhouse, creating a sophisticated and timeless feel that combines with top-notch service for a five-star experience. For a seriously upscale stay, the Grand Suite features a bathroom sauna, gym, and Jacuzzi tub, and elevated views over the Mediterranean.
Located within the grounds of one of the island’s most famous clubs, Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel has been entirely designed with clubbers in mind. Offering all the luxury and comfort of a five-star hotel, the suites come in a range of different styles – the Anything Can Happen suite offers a king-size bed, large sofa and jacuzzi. Others offer a direct view of the main stage, so you can enjoy the music from the comfort of your own private balcony. During the day time, you’re within minutes of the En Bossa Beach and just a short ride from the old town.
If your idea of sexy is stylish, immaculate and oh-so-tasteful, then suites at the Gran Hotel Montesol are sure to float your boat. A grand total of four private balconies provide dreamy views over the nearby marina, while white marble bathrooms with roomy rain-fall showers create a tone of chic luxury. Opened in 1933, this was also the island’s the first purpose-built hotel, and retains a period charm that adds to the sense of timeless romance.
This stylish suite hotel comes with a 24-hour reception desk, a workout area and rooftop solarium and jacuzzi. The suites and apartments on offer at Sud Ibiza Suites have all been designed with your comfort in mind, combining a fresh, modern appearance with the convenience of having your own kitchen area and living space. Ranging in size from 45sqm (484sqft) for two people to 75sqm (807sqft) for five people, the suites come with air conditioning, comfy double beds and, in many cases, sea views.
