Dance ’til in the early hours at Club Pacha, or soak up the pool-party vibes at the Ushuaïa Club. These vibrant hotels will tick all the boxes when it comes to partying on the Balearic island of Ibiza.
While the scene might have mellowed a little, it’s no question that Ibiza is still up there when it comes to places to party. While some prefer to slip back to their hotel to rest at the end of the night, others just want to party on through the day. Here are the best hotels on Ibiza to do just that.
No list of Ibiza party hotels is complete without the now legendary Ibiza Rocks Hotel. The first destination hotel in San Antonio, it puts on some of the biggest and loudest pool parties on the island (and, therefore, in the world). Expect world-class DJs, regular live bands, and the odd celeb, such as the likes of Craig David and Stormzy. You’ll get automatic free access to all events and pool parties while staying here, plus there’s a range of accommodation options, from basic to rock star that will suit every budget – some even feature rooftop terraces overlooking the throbbing party action.
Described as a “five-star theme park for adults”, the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel fuses high-octane clubbing with luxury-level accommodation. For those who can afford the hefty price tag, it provides the ultimate high-end Ibiza party experience, without even having to leave the hotel (or your room – some terraces offer direct access to the Ushuaïa Club). International DJs, super-swish suites and an ultra-exclusive VIP experience – that includes DJ masterclasses and luxury yachts at your disposal – all add up to one seriously sexy party package.
What better way to get in a party mood than indulging your inner rock star? Book a suite at the Ibizan outpost of the Hard Rock brand. Regular parties, unsurprisingly, lean towards live music, attracting some renowned acts that often go against the island’s typical EDM grain. Upgrade to the hotel’s top-end Rock Star Suite if you can – it comes complete with a spa-tub terrace, an integrated sound system and a cocktail station, which are a sure-fire recipe for wild times.
Hotel THB is definitely one of the most buzzing hotels on the island, thanks to its Ocean Beach Club, which you’ll have free access to six days a week. It’s all about the pool party here, held in and around its 600-square-metre (6,458sqft) pool, with top-class resident DJs banging out the choons, accompanied by an army of inflatables, regular spectacles and expertly mixed cocktails. There are also reservable Bali beds for the VIP experience and guest rooms overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean.
Melia’s ME brand is known for its uber-swish Balearic beach-club vibe, and their Ibiza branch certainly has that in spades. An adults-only rooftop terrace boasts an infinity pool with panoramic views, while a second pool hosts live DJ sessions. Don’t expect hardcore partying ’til dawn here – it’s certainly more of a chilled out, party vibe – but still a great hotel to soak up some feel-good music and atmosphere. Also, just next door is the famous Nikki Beach daytime beach club, where the beautiful people congregate in full party mode.
Partygoers booking a stay at Talamanca’s Destino Pacha Resort get free entry to Club Pacha, one of the most famous after-dark venues on the Balearics. During the day, life at this comprehensively equipped resort revolves around a palm-shaded pool shaped like a cherry, where you can lounge on hammocks or loungers big enough for five, sip cocktails, eat sushi and listen to some of Ibiza’s best resident DJs. Pick up a new party outfit at the onsite Destino Concept Boutique, where you’ll find brands such as Charo Ruiz, Camila and Melissa Odabash.
A deservedly popular hotel with both clubbing and non-clubbing crowds, the beachfront Hotel Garbi Ibiza & Spa offers a more chilled approach to the Ibizan party hotel scene. A resident DJ provides the party soundtrack around the pool, while the beachfront terrace is the place to get the night started, come sunset. Alongside 298 modern rooms, there’s a luxe spa with a Turkish bath, a Jacuzzi and a sauna room for post-rave relaxation.
This adults-only hotel overlooks the secluded S’argamassa Beach in the village of Santa Eulalia, a 20-minute drive north from Ibiza’s capital. From sunset onwards, hedonists gravitate to the Sea Soul Beach Club, where live DJs perform on a jetty that extends out into the Mediterranean, offering views of Formentera to the south. When not partying, unwind in the spa with a volcanic-stone massage, or head to the hotel’s affiliated watersports school (one of the best on the island), where you can learn everything from surfing to sailing.
You’re well-placed for partying in Ibiza Town at Hotel Es Vivé, an Art Deco-style boutique located a 10-minute walk from the island’s capital. Warm up in the sultry basement bar Experience, before heading to the rooftop Sky Bar for live beats, aperitivos and uninterrupted views of the Med. Rooms and suites are by celebrated interior designer Sean Cochrane. They range in size from Tiny and Cozy doubles, recommended for clubbers, to the three-person Junior Suites; all have marble bathrooms and most have views over the pool area.
Taking its name from the ancient lookout tower at the centre of its infinity pool, this stylish four-star overlooks Playa d’en Bossa, one of the longest beaches and most legendary nightspots on Ibiza. Onsite chilling spaces include the oceanview Excellence Terrace, featuring a Jacuzzi and bar service, and the Sal Rossa Spa, where you can book an open-air massage by the sea. For the ultimate post- or pre-clubbing accommodations, book one of the Deluxe or Premium sea-view rooms, both of which have their own terraces and private hydromassage tubs.
