The 2020 season has proven that those who are determined to come to Ibiza, will always find a way to come to Ibiza. With all the new health and safety restrictions in place around the world right now, holidaymakers are becoming even more discerning in their search for the perfect place to stay. Friends and families staying within their social bubbles seek spacious and interconnected hotel suites, or independent villa-style dwellings with all the trimmings of a luxury hotel, while couples are looking for places that offer all the more reason to luxuriate in your suite – think Jacuzzis, technology, private terraces, plunge pools and private chefs. If you’re in a position to travel to Ibiza before the season is out, we’ve rounded up a selection of the most indulgent, safe and spacious hotel suites across the island that are well worth the quarantine.
While all the suites at the stunning cliffside resort of 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza are luxurious, this season the hotel has added an all new category of accommodation that’s ideal for groups of friends or families seeking a private villa-style holiday, with all the creature comforts of five-star living. The Villa Experience offers two fully-equipped, standalone properties in secluded areas of the resort, each with four bedrooms and private plunge pools, plus terraces, gardens and sumptuous furnishings. Choose between Villa Es Vedra (as the name suggests, it has prime views of Ibiza’s most famous rock formation) and Villa Bohemia – secluded amongst the pine trees – for your late summer stay, and experience the very best of Ibiza all within the resort. Three amazing restaurants, decadent sunset experiences, amazing views, high end cocktails, live music, a luxury spa and on those days when you don’t want to leave the villa… room service!
When a suite has been given the name Cloud 9, it’s only natural to expect a level of luxury that exceeds a five-star standard and Aguas de Ibiza Grand Luxe – a category of hotel that is actually one level higher than five-star – delivers on so many levels. Contemporary furnishings, Bang & Olufsen tech and appliances, a huge 75-square metre space that’s bigger than most Ibiza apartments, views over the harbour of Santa Eulalia, a stylish living room, deep soak tub and even a pillow menu so you sleep soundly, the Cloud 9 Sea View Suite is one of the hotel’s premium rooms, and comes complete with unlimited access to the spa. All the more reason to stay here! There’s also the option to take it up a notch to the spacious 155 square metre Presidential Suite, which comes with all the same trimmings plus an outdoor tub, wooden oak floor panels and a seashell moulding above the bed that’s been designed in keeping with Feng Shui philosophy. Good energy abounds.
There’s luxury, and then there’s authentic Ibiza luxury, and when it comes to the latter, Atzaró Agroturismo is its very epitome. Renowned around the world for its laid-back but high-end rustic chic style, the high-end San Lorenzo hotel is a haven for those seeking a discreet and secure hideaway from daily life. The Atzaró Suite Deluxe options are private and spacious, with a soothing and relaxing ambience that allows guests to truly immerse themselves in luxury. Typically Ibizan in style, each suite features king-sized four-poster bed fitted with slowing white curtains and soft cotton bed linen, a private swimming pool, tropical gardens, unique Ibiza inspired art, Smart TVs and much more. It would be easy to check in here and never leave the comfort of your suite – and that’s totally encouraged, if that’s the kind of holiday you’re seeking – although there’s plenty of beautiful temptation across the grounds, such as the in-house restaurant La Veranda and the Atzaró Vegetable Garden, where you can dine within the huerta, plus the iconic Atzaró Spa within the orange groves.
For those who prefer their luxury to be more about homely creature comforts, rather than sleek and modern conveniences, the two new additions to Cas Gasi’s accommodation offerings in 2020 are just the thing. The Ibizan Palaces are two independent villa suites located in a private area of the popular boutique hotel – allowing families or groups of friends to luxuriate in the iconic Cas Gasi style and service, without having to leave the comfort of the property. Inspired by traditional Ibicenco architecture, each villa can accommodate up to six guests, and features king size and XXL beds with feather mattress toppers and Italian damask sheets for the sweetest of dreams – there’s also a duvet and pillow menu to choose from. Private balconies and terraces offer stunning views across the peaceful countryside, and for those who have adopted to working remotely, there are even stylish teak desks to make your home office for the duration of your stay. Heavenly Penhaligon toiletries, fresh flowers, a traditional nightly turn-down service – it’s the little things that make a stay at Cas Gasi feel like a luxury home away from home.

The Suite ME at ME Ibiza, on the frontline of S’Argamassa on Ibiza’s east coast, is one of the most spacious hotel suites on the island – in fact, it’s almost like your very own luxury villa. The expansive and magnificent 400 square metre space has been designed to make the most of the Medterranean Sea views – even from your private swimming pool, you can gaze out to the horizon. You’ll be picked up from the airport in a plush white Range Rover and whisked off to the hotel in air-conditioned comfort, where you’ll be greeted by your 24-hour personal experience advisor (known as the Aura Manager) an given a personalized welcome gift before your holiday has even begun.

The Nobu Penthouse Suite at Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay – right on the seafront of Talamanca – is the very definition of ‘suite life’. Step through the grand entrance on the hotel’s top floor, and step into a world of pure luxury. Three decadent bedrooms, marble bathrooms, a living room, dining area, kitchen (don’t worry about cooking or cleaning, the Nobu chefs are on call to take care care of all the hard work there), two terraces and those breathtaking sea views set the scene for your stay, but it’s all the added extras that really make this an unforgettable Ibiza experience.

You’ll also have breakfast served daily, in the privacy of the suite, a complimentary in-suite styling service from the John Frieda Salon, a daily spa treatment, a signed memoir by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself and if you’re travelling with kids in tow, the in-suite kids’ plat corner will keep them entertained for hours when they’re not begging you to go back to the coolest kids’ club in Ibiza – right next door to the plush pool where you receive a complimentary Bali bed each day. Luxury on all levels, for all ages.
With only five suites in the entire hotel, naturally there’s a high level of personalised service and luxury at The Giri Residence. But service here goes beyond simply catering to your every whim; rather, the intuitive team seem to be able to predict and interpret your desires before you even realise they’re there. Set in the quaint little village of San Juan in Ibiza’s north, book into the rooftop suite – The Bourgainville Suite – to create your own safe and spacious holiday haven, away from the crowds, awash with luxury and yet with a feeling of homeliness that can’t be found in a huge resort. With a master bedroom and en suite bathroom, plus two sofa beds in the living area and an additional bathroom, the suite can be configured to suit families or friends – or you could just take it all for yourself. Mornings are spent overlooking the church steeple from your terrace, with breakfast delivered to your door, afternoons can be pottering in the garden to your own private Balinese cabana or indulging in an Ayurvedic treatment in the spa, while in the evenings, The Giri Residence in-house chef is on hand to whip up whatever culinary cravings you desire.
It’s impossible to find a room you wouldn’t like at the all-new W Ibiza on the promenade in Santa Eulalia, especially as each room befits its name, such as Mega, Wonderful, Spectacular, Fantastic and Marvelous. But, as with all luxury resorts, not all suites are created equal and while a stay in any of the aforementioned is luxurious, a stay in the Penthouse is really a cut above the rest. With sea views, an amazing round king-sized bed and a spacious private terrace in the master room (also called Extreme Wow), two additional king-sized rooms (Fabulous and Wonderful) plus all the high-tech accessories you need, the three-bedroom connecting Penthouse suite is ideal for a group of friends who want plenty of space and privacy when they need it, but have spaces like a sea view terraces, large living areas and the rooftop to come together when not making the most of the hotel’s glamorous facilities.
