If you love Ibiza’s peaceful side, where you can truly chill out and soak up the island’s sun-kissed beauty, the new Six Senses Ibiza is a dream come true.

The latest offering from the sustainability-focussed Six Senses brand, this opening makes perfect sense. Ibiza has long held its own sense of spirituality, giving this seafront retreat has everything it needs to offer a soul-soothing escape.

Our Product Manager, Gabrielle, has just got back from seeing it for herself. So, we asked her for a quick-fire round of questions to get the lowdown on Ibiza’s hottest new opening…

Firstly, how was the testing and departure process getting to Ibiza?

Getting to Ibiza went very smoothly for me!

I booked my PCR test at my local Boots store and my results came through the next day, along with my QR code for the airport. I then filled in a passenger locator form online.

The airport was quiet when I arrived and felt very safe. Before boarding, my test certificate and form were checked. We were seated in sections on the plane and asked to refrain from queuing for the toilets or gathering in the aisles.

At Ibiza airport, my test result and passenger locator form were checked again, then I was free to carry on to my hotel without any need for quarantine.

First impressions of the hotel?

Six Senses Ibiza is beautiful! As it’s just opened, I was expecting it to feel new. However, I was surprised by how established it already feels. The view from reception is simply amazing, with impressive floor-to-ceiling doors which open-up to panoramic vistas of the sea. 

What was the surrounding area like?

Six Senses Ibiza is located on the north of the island which is so beautiful and feels really private. It’s slightly hidden away on Xarraca Bay, which is very green and peaceful with the best views over the sea.

The village of Portinatx is just a stone’s throw away, where there’re plenty of restaurants and shops, along with lovely beaches. You can find watersport facilities that make the most of the calm, shallow waters, too. It’s also quite a hilly area with verdant pine forests, so is the best part of the island for taking scenic coastal walks.

Hidden Gem

A lot of people don't realise there are some beautiful walking trails in Ibiza, particularly the north. One of the best is the walk from Portinatx to the Moscarter Lighthouse, which boasts wonderful views from the clifftop.

Top three highlights of your stay?

  1. The rooftop morning yoga. This is held every day at the hotel and is the perfect way to wake up. The sessions are an hour long and boast incredible sea views. It’s true relaxation and really gets you into the chilled-out spirit of Ibiza.
  2. Sunset drinks. If you’ve been to Ibiza before, you’ll already know how gorgeous the sunsets are! Sipping a cocktail on the pool terrace, as the sky put on its spectacular display over the sea, was just what I needed.
  3. Our boat trip to Es Vedra. This is one of the ultimate experiences in Ibiza. The hotel makes it so special, too. We anchored down to swim in the sea, relaxed in the sun and enjoyed lunch on board. It was the most perfect afternoon.

The Magic of Es Vedra

If you haven't taken a boat trip to Es Vedra, we highly reccomend doing so. Quiet and undeniably mystic, it's said to be the third most magnetic point on the planet, the home of lunar goddess, Tanit, and a source of positive energy. Whether you believe it or not, it's still a beautiful sight to see.

Favourite part of the resort?

It’s got to be the infinity pool which overlooks the sea. It’s so calming and the views over the bay really are beautiful. The perfect place to unwind with a book and order a cocktail. Bliss.
