Watching the balmy red sun sink into the Mediterranean is a long-standing, and nightly, Ibiza tradition, and if you can wangle a view of the mystical rock of Es Vedra into the kaleidoscope coloured vista, then you’re definitely onto a winner. Throw in a deliciously chilled cocktail served on a chic contemporary terrace facing out to sea, and you’ve found Ibiza sunset heaven… otherwise known as 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza.
Overlooking the gloriously unspoilt bay of Cala Codolar in prime sunset territory on the west coast of the island, 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza combines contemporary décor with traditional natural finishes for the ultimate in laidback luxury. Practically one of the only venues in Ibiza from which you can view an unrestricted Es Vedra sunset – and open to island residents and visitors in addition to hotel guests – the iconic rock can be seen from almost everywhere in the resort, making this an unmissable destination hotspot on your Ibiza bucket list.
Aptly named restaurant The View offers Ibiza sunset dining on a raised glass-fronted terrace, with jaw-dropping panoramic vistas across the glittering Med and modern Asian cuisine. Downstairs, the more casual Cone Club serves up a beach-club vibe with an all-day kitchen, great for late lunching or lounging, before smoothly segueing into the atmospheric Sunset Ritual as soon as the sky begins to pink.
Of course, if your Ibiza sunset need only be served with drinks, then the hotel’s dedicated cocktail bar, Pershing Yacht Terrace, designed in collaboration with the high-end yacht makers of the same name, is the place to head for. An extensive list of signature cocktails ideally complements the stunning view. Chilled beats and smooth sounds serenade the ambient setting and as dusk turns to dark, and another day finishes on this magical island, who knows where your night will end? If you’re really lucky, right here in one of the luxurious five-star suites at 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza…
