Checking in to Cas Gasi feels just like arriving home. The family-run, luxurious boutique hotel in the heart of Santa Gertrudis has been open all year round since 1998 and is the perfect place to surrender to serenity, tune into the natural rhythms of the island and embrace a slower pace this winter. The secret to its captivating sense of cosiness and comfort is authenticity and sustainability – this is a destination that is truly one-of-a-kind, having evolved and grown alongside the tastes of its owners and loyal guests over the decades to become the cherished destination it is today.
Many say that a stay at Cas Gasi feels like visiting the home of a well travelled, curious and creative friend. A testament to the eye, style and character of owner Margaret Von Korff, the hotel’s ethos is ‘quiet by design’, and its aim is to promote deep relaxation and create an Ibiza experience like no other. Step through the front doors to be greeted by a warm and welcoming team – including Margaret’s children Vera and Luis – and discover the elegantly bohemian communal spaces that include a plush living area complete with a toasty open fire, beautifully designed coffee tables piled high with an eclectic selection of books, and intriguing artworks lining the walls.
Luxurious boutique hotel Cas Gasi is located in the verdant and peaceful Santa Gertrudis countryside, where a slower pace of life is enjoyed.
Cas Gasi embodied the notion of quiet luxury long before the term became a trend. Each of its 18 suites are lavish and yet homely, decked with quality fixtures, high-end bedding, Design Guild fabrics and handpicked antiques from across the world – no two rooms are alike. Elevating the luxury levels are two standalone Ibizan Palaces, designed in homage to Belgian architect Philippe Rotthier, whose book, Ibiza, Le Palais Paysan, so beautifully describes the traditional Ibicencan architecture. Sleeping up to six guests and boasting total privacy and luxury, the standalone dwellings are ideal for families or groups of friends looking to create unforgettable memories together.
You’ll never find crowds at Cas Gasi – here, guests are encouraged to transition to tranquillity at their own pace, surrounded by nature. Repeat customers have become lifelong friends as the hotel has emerged as more than just a destination, but a way of life. In fact, Margaret and her family have watched generations of guests grow up over the years – from young couples in love, to young families, and now, in a full circle moment, the children of those families visiting with their own partners. It can feel like time stands still here – it’s easy to forget about the before and after, and just enjoy living in the moment.
Whether for a weekend away, a week of vacation, a month-long sojourn or a seasonal retreat, Cas Gasi is where you can feel inspired to do everything and nothing all at once. You may feel inspired to finally write your novel, screenplay or even a business plan; you might simply prefer to spend your days in the sun reading books from the upstairs library – expertly curated over 20 years – and nights watching films. It’s a place where you can nourish your health and wellbeing, while nurturing your soul – be that with wholesome cuisine and yoga or by simply immersing yourself in the flow of winter life in Ibiza.
Start your mornings against a backdrop of beauty with a gentle stroll in the ‘silent garden’ where only the sweet sound of birdsong floats across the airwaves – the hotel’s dedication to promoting eco-conscious systems that put nature first hasn’t wavered in over 20 years. Find balance by taking part in daily morning yoga sessions or spend time in the deeply serene spa, where an array of beauty and body treatments can be arranged. Swim laps against the jet stream in the indoor swimming pool (heated by photovoltaic panels), try your hand at cold-water immersion in the beautiful outdoor pool or while away the hours in the relaxing suntraps across the enchanting Cas Gasi grounds.
This stylish and soothing home-away-from-home is a place to switch off and tune into the island and all its natural beauty.
Away from the hotel’s whitewashed walls, verdant gardens and tranquil ambience, the sun-drenched winter in Ibiza awaits. In the off-season, there are many activities to take part in: guided countryside or seaside walks, creative and colourful markets, sunset rituals, a unique restaurant scene and much more – a refreshing side of Ibiza that is far removed from the buzzing crowds and fast-paced reputation of summer. Speaking of restaurants, you don’t need to stray further than Cas Gasi’s own backyard to discover some of the finest cuisine on the island, either at the beautiful Garden Café, which serves lunch and snacks throughout the day, or at .more. by Cas Gasi, the beautiful evening fine dining restaurant – both also open to the public.
Dining right in the heart of the garden or beneath centuries-old olive trees, a feeling of connection is palpable – connection to the produce, to the earth from which it came, and to those with whom you are sharing your precious mealtimes. Much of the produce served comes directly from the Cas Gasi organic gardens – a regenerative agriculture project using the no-dig system, pioneered by British horticulturalist Charles Dowding, to keep the ecosystem beneath the soil flourishing. The proof is served up on a plate – artfully presented dishes that sing with the flavours of the Mediterranean.
For over 25 years, through thick and thin, Cas Gasi has remained loyal to its roots – marrying an ecological sensibility to exceptional service within an idyllic country location. The team’s dedication and attention to detail is second to none, creating a tranquil, laid-back environment where going with the flow feels like second nature, and blissfully warm days segue into cosy nights. A stay at Cas Gasi is a restorative escape from daily life that feeds the soul for months to come – start with a winter stay, and it won’t be long until you’re a summer visitor too.
