SIX SENSES IBIZA
Tucked away on the peaceful northern tip of Ibiza is crystalline Cala Xarraca Bay. Located just 30 minutes from the airport, this is the inspiring setting for Six Senses Ibiza, the newest addition to the portfolio of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
Scheduled to open in 2021, Six Senses Ibiza’s 134 guest accommodations will include townhouses, pool suites with private decks and beach cave units set on a 25-acre (10-hectare) site. With unobstructed westerly sunset views, the resort, spa and residential community will dance to the beat of a new
mantra: transformative wellness to nourish the body, mind and soul. Every aspect of the property’s physical design will facilitate the feeling of community and the activities and amenities offered to guests will focus on learning and experience.
Chief Executive Officer Neil Jacobs of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas says: “We’re very excited to open our first resort, spa and residential project in Ibiza, a project that celebrates wellness, sustainability and community spirit. This third European property complements our sister resort in Portugal’s Douro Valley, residential project in Courchevel, France and seven fabulous spas in France, Greece, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.”
Six Senses has signed a management agreement with Beach Box Ibiza S.L. to open the resort in 2021 as a benchmark in innovative design, unique entertainment concepts and eclectic dining experiences. “We could not be more pleased to work with Beach Box Ibiza on this truly creative project,” said Jacobs.
According to Jonathan Leitersdorf of Beach Box Ibiza S.L., the visionary behind the design and the development of the project, “Our vision is to capture the authentic Ibiza experience of community, spirituality and celebration to be delivered with top service, organic food and beverage, and luxurious accommodations for our guests. It is the first full-service hospitality experience with rich amenities not yet offered on the island. Partnering with a world-class operator such as Six Senses, together we will deliver a resort and residential community for all ages, while
promoting the importance of sustainability and healthy living.” The refreshingly fun and quirky
attitude of Six Senses places its focus on wellness, sustainability and uncompromising guest experiences. The hotel will feature a one-of-a kind spiritual learning centre with an innovative approach to optimising health which includes fitness, nutrition, education, yoga, sleep, mindfulness and more. Guests select how far they want to go in pioneering their health and wellness practices. The hotel will encompass the only Six Senses Spa on the island of Ibiza which will specialise in a rich array of treatments and techniques from all over the world.
With its spiritual vibe and beautiful design, Six Senses Spa Ibiza offers a full range of treatment rooms, a communal treatment lounge and an oxygen bar. The spa and wellness facility houses a spa café and juice bar, yoga and changing facilities and an extensive fitness centre, and features an anti- aging clinic, nutrition guidance and modern healing methods. Outdoors there are massage catacombs, a Watsu pool, a labyrinth plus direct access to the organic gardens where ingredients for the spa botanicals and dining outlets are grown. In addition to the team of skilled therapists, an ongoing program of visiting practitioners ensures guests are the first to experience the latest teachings and programs.
There will also be a local, organic, unmodified and unprocessed food experience. The organic offering continues with the cotton of the sheets and towels as well as the amenities kits and uniquely designed apparel.
As with all of Six Senses properties, destination dining is a memorable experience. Here, there is a social twist. Long communal dining tables will offer local produce and intermingling at The Market, open 24/7. The poolside offers a raw food organic bar with accompanying cocktails and organic beer. A popup restaurant in the resort’s organic farm will also offercookinglessons.Privatediningwillalsobeofferedinsuites as they all feature decks or private gardens.
