It was only a matter of time before The Standard, the famously fun-loving hotel brand with outposts in Miami, New York and London, laid roots in Ibiza. Renowned for its always-about-to-pop party vibe, these are hotels with spirited foundations and at The Standard, Ibiza, that essence is irrefutable. An Ibiza boutique hotel that’s been designed to host a cosmopolitan crowd, it matches style with substance, providing multiple spaces in which jet-set creatives can live, work and play. Urban-inspired properties are a rarity on the white isle, so it’s small wonder this one has already caught the world’s eye.
The Standard, Ibiza is appropriately situated on the former site of an old movie theatre, which makes sense: charisma and verve are fundamentals principles here. And with a front row setting on Vara de Rey, Ibiza town’s bustling, pedestrianised plaza, it’s always at the epicentre of the action. The waterfront is just a short stroll away, and with it, access to ferries or yachts that swoop across to the neighbouring island of Formentera – the perfect place for a daybreak with a slow, more chilled vibe. Back in the old town, this Ibiza boutique hotel has been blessed with a location that thrums from day to night.
That’s entirely the point, of course, because guests at The Standard, Ibiza, don’t come for a quiet time – although there are plenty of areas to relax and unwind in, should the need arise. The rooftop pool — a first for an Ibiza boutique hotel and exclusively for guests – is a great place to start. Spend the day dozing on a sun lounger, cocktail in hand, eyes on the incredible view of the ancient walls of Dalt Vila. Come dusk, stake your claim at the adjoining bar, UP at The Standard, for delicious sundowners, or head to Jara, the ground floor restaurant with DJs and other live happenings.
Each of the rooms and suites at this Ibiza boutique hotel is bedecked in uncomplicated design that echoes the simplicity of island life. White walls and linen are contrasted by sleek contemporary furniture: no fuss or frills, just modern and stylish. Some suites at The Standard, Ibiza have bathtubs while others feature balconies overlooking the square below or the courtyard, but every single one is equipped with rain shower and Davines products, a Bluetooth speaker and king-size beds, evoking the feeling of a calm refuge amid the hum of the hotel and surrounding area.
For guests needing more space, there’s also Casa Privada further down the block. Home to 14 individual guest accommodations, a rooftop pool and hot tubs, it boasts all the benefits of a private residence and perks of The Standard, Ibiza combined. Back at the main hotel, expect to witness freewheeling characters making the space their second home. This Ibiza boutique hotel injects energy into the day-to-day and provides a platform for the night’s inevitable shenanigans to unfold – don’t be surprised to see a slew of the world’s A-List descend here this summer.
