Like a mythical phoenix, the Ibiza institution of Pikes has been revived into a luxury hotel. With total respect to its hard partying heritage plus loving attention to detail, Ibiza Rocks founders Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle have recreated 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, 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.
The infamous Marrakech Suite (the ostentatious scene of Freddie Mercury ‘s birthday party) is transformed into Freddie’s – the ultimate back-to-mine party venue, available for private events, complete with DJ booth, Jacuzzi, bar and bathtub karaoke.
The beauty of Pikes is that everyone is invited. Dine in the relaxed restaurant Room 39, sip cocktails and mingle with bands by the pool or shop for vintage designer pieces, jewellery, Pikes merchandise, bedding and more in the boutique. Rock and roll all night… and also every day!
