LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTEL NEAR SANTA EULALIA, IBIZA
Set within the gorgeous Santa Eulalia countryside, luxurious boutique hotel Ibizazen – the creation of soulmate entrepreneurs Jerry and Sophie Jean-Marius – has an airy, laidback feel thanks to lush landscaped gardens, authentic Ibiza stone terraces, palm-tree shaded areas, bamboo gazebos, stylish teak sunbeds, a secluded Zen Garden and that’s just the exterior.
Inside, recycled art decorates the elegant lobby in a style that is minimalistic with splashes of play – east meets west with warm and colourful touches, a style unique to this bohemian bolthole. 13 immaculately finished, open-plan rooms boast private entrances, smart TVs, mini-bar, Nespresso machines, rain-showers, free-standing stone bathtubs, beautiful Indonesian tiling, antique wooden detailing and more.
Ibizazen has a home-away-from-home atmosphere, with the benefits of five-star luxuries such as a nanny service, private VIP airport transfers, plus personal training, alfresco yoga, massages and spa treatments from experienced therapists. The Zazen Boutique is stocked full of goodies hand-picked and designed by the owners on their worldly travels throughout winter – with everything you need to encapsulate true Ibiza style.
Peaceful mornings by the pool are aided by efficiently pre-ordered a la carte breakfasts including healthy fruit and veg smoothies and luxe deli items like ‘Dutch old-cheese’, marinated salmon, carpaccio and much more mouth watering goodness. By night the restaurant is open for guests’ dining pleasure with romantic, candlelit degustation menu on Thursday evenings. A heavenly haven on the island’s east coast.
