As the world is finally reawakening, we find ourselves once again seeking the experiences that light us up. Sunny days spent in the countryside, languid beach afternoons, sunset cocktails, dinners beneath the stars… a springtime holiday in Ibiza ticks all the right boxes. When combined with a generous 25% discount on room rates at The Giri Residence for stays between May 01 and 14, 2022, a last-minute getaway to the white isle seems to make even more sense than ever before.

Hidden among the rolling green hills of Ibiza’s rural north in the quaint and authentic village of San Juan, The Giri Residence offers an effortless, laid-back approach to Ibiza holidays. Prized by loyal clients for its quiet but luxurious way of living, the intimate five-room hotel invites international travellers to come home again and revel in the revival of the island. A place in which time slows and agendas fall by the wayside, this is the perfect space in which to reconnect with self and surroundings.

Stylish and intimate boutique hotel The Giri Residence is offering a 25% discount on room rates for stays between May 01 and 14, 2022.

The Giri Residence is the kind of hotel you could easily check into and not leave for the duration of your stay, safely ensconced in its tranquil surrounds and cared for by a team of consummate professionals who specialise in seamless, bespoke service. The result is a feeling of total contentment in a home away from home and little acts of considered kindness – like your favourite wine on ice or your coffee served exactly as you like – make it all the more special.

For some people of course, the temptation to explore the pristine beaches, hippie markets, gastronomy scene and historical old town is all part of the pleasure of a trip to Ibiza, and beyond The Giri Residence’s subtle façade and elegant pool, another world waits to be uncovered. It goes without saying that the team – year-round residents who live and breathe Ibiza themselves – can advise and arrange any island activity, once again interpreting the right places, beaches, experiences and events that best suit your travelling style. No request is too big or small, it’s just all part of the package.

The hotel’s private chef and in-house kitchen are at your disposal to cater to any culinary whim, from haute cuisine to comfort food.

This personalised service extends to the culinary offering at The Giri Residence, where there is no formal restaurant or menu to speak of, rather, an in-house chef is on hand day and night to cater to your every gastronomical whim. Food is always locally sourced and seasonal but how that’s tailored on the plate is entirely down to you. From haute cuisine to comfort food, nothing is off limits. In fact, guests are encouraged to chat to the chef so they can give a little background on their tastes and dietary requirements and inspire him to dream up the perfect menu suggestions.

Elsewhere, The Giri Residence Spa takes relaxation to the next level. A below ground sanctuary offering complete stillness and solitude, the treatment menu is based on Ayurvedic practices that encapsulate a holistic approach to physical, mental and energetic health. Each therapist is an expert in both beauty and wellbeing and can offer lifestyle consulting and personal training in addition to yoga, Pilates and meditation sessions. Take time out with an Ayurvedic facial mask made from Mediterranean plants and herbs or indulge in a Rasayana ritual for a multi-sensory experience. It’s never been easier to switch off.

Attention to detail is paramount throughout the luxurious hotel, from spacious shared spaces to the subterranean spa and five beautiful suites.

The blissful setting continues inside each of the five uniquely designed suites, in which natural materials and contrasting textures play key roles and like everything else at The Giri Residence, attention to detail is paramount. The Olivo Suite boasts its own Balinese-inspired bathroom, for instance, while The Jasmin Room is bathed in natural sunlight and the vistas from the sun-drenched, spacious terrace of The Bourgainville Suite are standout. Innate privacy means they’re all ideal spaces for couples or anyone in search of a peaceful remote working destination, but some of the suites can also be conveniently configured for families if there are children in tow.

All of these elements combined make every stay at The Giri Residence truly memorable – such subtle yet exquisite service, a team so in tune with their environment and its guests and a location that boasts the very best of Ibiza in its own backyard, including its popular sister restaurant The Giri Café. And as Ibiza currently experiences an early start to the season, happily making up for the time lost in the past two years, and the hotel is offering 25% off room rates in the first half of May, now really is the time to relinquish hibernation and embrace island life in all its authentic splendour.
