Envision Ibiza being exclusively DJ sets, nightlife, and partying? Then you need to explore the north of the island for a new answer to the classic “where to stay in Ibiza?” question.
Ibiza has been a secluded homebase for countless creatives since the 1950s. Historically, artists flocked to the northern part of the island when choosing where to stay on this Mediterranean paradise. Today, the live-and-let-live philosophy that initially drew crowds continues to bloom under the Balearic island’s warm sun. Check into Six Senses Ibiza for a taste of this magic combined with a true sense of community.
Six Senses Ibiza is perched on the northern tip of the island in an area called Cala Xarraca. Here, you’ll find a beautiful bay with pristine Instagrammable waters perfect for quick dives and snorkeling sessions. Its isolated location contributes to the reason that so many people choose this location as their choice for where to stay in Ibiza. For example, lush green pine forests surround the resort, and charming white houses, rugged red cliffs, and rocky pathways dot the shores. Cala Xarraca also houses a famous natural mud bath, which is said to have healing properties and soothes tired skin. Overall, this destination is ideal for adventure walks and exploring.
2. Six Senses Ibiza grows their food right on property
“I want people to feel that they are eating straight from the seeds and earth they are standing on.”
The culinary program at Six Senses Ibiza alone warrants selecting this property as your next stay. This is because it’s the debut of Eyal Shani’s– the founding father of new Israeli cuisine – newest outpost. “Ibiza is a blessed place,” says Eyal Shani. “The energy. The relationship between the land and sea. The ingredients. You can taste the sun. I will cook in the purest way using seasonal ingredients. I want people to feel that they are eating straight from the seeds and earth they are standing on. Your plate is the fields, growing all around you.”
Eyal is best known for his fervent passion for vegetables; this celebrity chef prepares a plethora of mouth-watering greens grown at the resort’s Farm in Santa Gertrudis. As a result, the property’s signature restaurants guarantee a lush meal for all. The Farmer’s Market invites guests to taste a casual selection of all-day dining while HaSalon Ibiza offers a high-end dining experience. We personally love the shorefront tapas and sharing plates at the Beach Caves. Each establishment is sure to deliver lovingly prepared dishes that are organic, seasonal, nutritious, and delicious.
3. The wellness experiences are as exciting as they are rejuvenating
Six Senses Spa offers treatments that go beyond the ordinary. The spa expands over 1,200 square meters and houses various top-of-the-line facilities. Firstly, step into their infrared sauna to relieve your aching muscles. Afterwards, dip into their caldarium and experience a hot plunge bath as the Romans did. Later on, experiment with their biohacking treatments like cryotherapy or hypervolt percussion massage. Lastly, take to the relaxation room and exit through their organic gardens, where ingredients for the spa are grown. Whether you’re looking for personalized treatments, expert fitness programs, or multi-day Immersive Retreats, Six Senses Ibiza centers it all around your needs.
4. Ibiza weaves sustainability and fashion into one
…rent a stunning ensemble for a special one-night-only appearance…
Six Senses has partnered with Glamour and Vogue editors Tiffanie Darke and Daniela Agnelli to put sustainability at the center of your resort shopping experience. Agora – the resort’s shopping center – is built upon four pillars: recycle, restore, reduce, and rent. First, “Recycle” is about material science, such as CDLP’s econyl swim shorts or Loewe’s cleverly upcycled leather handbag. Secondly, “Restore” is about protecting Ibiza’s artisanal communities and generational handicrafts. For example, the resort champions Wehve’s shawls spun, dyed, and woven by local co-operatives in Uruguay. “Reduce” is about curating a fashion collection that can work harder for longer. Finally (the fun part), guests can put together and rent a stunning ensemble for a special one-night-only appearance, allowing you to be much more playful and pack lighter!
5. Six Senses is ensuring Ibiza ecology is here to stay
Six Senses makes sure to implement policies that make a difference.
The biodiversity in Ibiza is a notable reason why people choose this island to explore. And Six Senses is busy developing new initiatives and procedures to minimize its ecological impact on the destination. Whether it’s shifting operating systems or using greener materials throughout the resort, Six Senses makes sure to implement policies that make a difference. As a result, the resort will also be the first sustainable BREEAM certified resort in the Balearics. By working with partners like the Ibiza Preservation Fund, important preservation and biodiversity projects can continue on land and sea. Additionally, the resort will contribute part of its operating revenue to the Six Senses Sustainability Fund to support local environmental and community foundations.
