An under-the-radar gem that has been welcoming loyal guests to Ibiza for more than two decades, Petunia Ibiza is in the throes of a hip and sophisticated revival, thanks to the expert guidance of its new owners. Its formerly well-kept secrets – an unrivalled seaside location, laid-back familial service, incredible food and jaw-dropping views overlooking the magnificent rock of Es Vedra – are about to get out. This boutique Ibiza hotel is an icon in the making.
Adjacent to the sparkling shores of Cala Carbó, an intimate south coast beach loved by locals, Petunia Ibiza boasts an enviable location that is at once postcard-perfect and also secluded, despite its close proximity to one of Ibiza’s most famous landmarks. The clever design of the Ibiza boutique hotel means once you’re inside, it’s completely discreet, with each of the 34 rooms and villas decorated in a pared-back and sophisticated style, with private terraces or gardens allowing for even more personal space, when you’re not basking by the beautiful pool.
Here, the vistas are truly second to none, and on a comfy sun-lounger with a cocktail in hand, it’s easy to see why guests spend most of their valuable holiday hours onsite at Petunia Ibiza. Nothing but relaxation is found here, from boho alfresco chill-out areas to the surrounding gardens that sing with vibrant colour. As the sun goes down, there are oodles of opportunity for admiring candy floss skies; from your sun lounger, your private terrace, or on the exclusive new cocktail bar on the Ibiza boutique hotel’s rooftop terrace – open to the public.
Also open to holidaymakers and residents (excluding Tuesdays) is the in-house restaurant at Petunia Ibiza. Big news for 2020 is that the Ibiza boutique hotel is now home to another icon, the much-loved eatery La Mesa Escondida (formerly of San Rafael). In its new seaside location, and with an impressive onsite huerta from which to harvest produce, chef Lorenzo specialises in modern Mediterranean gastronomy – think old favourites, re-imagined classics and all-new creations befitting its illustrious location, plus there’s a poolside pizzeria serving up the very best slices on the island. Just ten minutes from the charming village of San José, there’s no doubt Petunia Ibiza is firmly stamped as a must-visit on the Ibiza map.
