Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel – Rock ‘n’ roll hotel
Like a mythical phoenix, the Ibiza institution of Pikes Hotel has been reborn in 2011 as a luxury boutique hotel. With total respect to its hard partying heritage plus loving attention to detail, Ibiza Rocks founders Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle have created Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes – their modern incarnation of an old school classic.
From the outside, the 500-year old property retains its rustic charm with eccentric talking points like whimsical illustrations and interesting taxidermy displays. The tennis court is now a blazing hot pink, in keeping with the Ibiza Rocks ethos, while the legendary swimming pool (of Wham’s Club Tropicana fame) remains unchanged.
New life is breathed into the 26 stylish rooms via lashings of white paint, huge historic Ibiza photographs, eclectic soft furnishings (featuring reproductions of old Pikes’ celebrity snaps) plus cool added extras like functional vintage record players.
