High season has arrived, and with it the hot, sticky high temps associated with August in Ibiza. There are some days when even the beach doesn’t provide quite the right respite – when the air is humid, the breeze balmy and even the water is warm – but who wants to spend their valuable holiday hours holed up in an air-conditioned room in your villa or hotel? Ibiza’s best day spas offer the best of both worlds: a relaxing, tranquil and cool environment in which to be pampered from top to toe, plus stunning swimming pools and daybeds to relax in before, in between, or after treatments. From contemporary and slick to bohemian luxury, there’s an Ibiza spa to suit all styles.
The new W Ibiza complex in Santa Eulalia welcomes one and all to try the delights of its in-house spa, Away Spa & Fit, along with its supercool poolside area, Wet Deck.

Subtle pastel hues at the counter and in the lounge area complement the all-white, clean and clinical treatment rooms – here is a space where you can relax knowing you’re in the safest of professionally trained hands.
One of the island’s original luxury day spas, Atzaró Spa is nestled within the orange groves of the authentic island Agroturismo of the same name.

A team of professional therapists offer an array of health and wellbeing treatments, from massages, facials and peels, to manicures and pedicures, Thai and Ayurveda massages plus Reiki energy healing sessions. A healthy spa menu is also available to complement your spa day – those seeking Zen should look no further than Atzaró Spa.

Open all year round (which makes the aforementioned locals happy), the spa’s rituals are not to be missed – choose between rituals designed around coffee, orchids and semi-precious stones, vinotherapy, citurus and marine elements. Special promotions are also available that include couples rituals, relaxation days, wellbeing days and more.
