If there’s ever a year when we’ve deserved a summer in all its luscious, sun-kissed glory, surely this is it. Two years of interrupted plans later, we can shake off the shackles of restrictions and sling our swimsuits into a suitcase to swan off for sunnier climes. No surprises then, that this season in Ibiza is expected to be the busiest and best yet, with visitors from all over the world scheduled to step on its endless sandy shores for the first time in too long. Call it a third summer of love, a Balearic revival or just good old-fashioned fun, sun, rest and relaxation – whatever you call it, luxurious Ibiza resort ME Ibiza is primed and ready to welcome back its host of international friends and greet lots of lovely new faces, for all of the above.
Located on a pristine corner of the island near the bustling seaside town of Santa Eulalia, not to mention just two minutes from the laidback beach vibes of Cala Martina, ME Ibiza is a haven amid the hectic pace of summertime – a place where time slows, allowing guests to catch their breath and start anew. This season, it’s welcoming visitors from Wednesday April 13, 2022, and there are all manner of treats in store once they arrive. From the postcard perfect location with panoramic sea views to the standout wellness offerings and first-class gastronomy, ME Ibiza is set to remind those of us who’ve been pining after a luxurious holiday exactly what we’ve been missing.
Five-star Ibiza resort ME Ibiza welcomes back international friends and new faces from Wednesday April 13, 2022 – just in time for the next summer of love!
The hotel itself is in a completely different world to the rest of Ibiza. Perched on the seafront that sparkles at all hours and with its own beautiful tropical gardens, ME Ibiza is a sanctuary so chilled that once guests arrive they never want to leave. Rooms are light, airy, and oh-so-chic, with contemporary decor and crisp white bed linen that makes way for clear minds and rested bodies. Many boast sea views, and some suites have their own private swimming pools, though the same essence of subtle luxury is guaranteed wherever you lay your head.
The ME+ concierge service, available to all guests on request 24 hours a day, adds finesse to each stay. From private check-in and bespoke service to priority access to all ME Ibiza facilities, it offers the perks of extra attention to detail for every guest. And everyone is welcome here – from families with pets and kids to couples or groups of friends, this Ibiza hotel creates the kind of inclusive environment where you can feel free to unwind and be yourself – in a sumptuous white fluffy robe, of course.
Beyond the bedrooms, there are no end of options to keep guests entertained at ME Ibiza. First stop for many is Thai Room Wellness & Spa, where stresses and strains are left at the door. Here, native Thai therapists are at the helm and they specialise in the revolutionary massages and treatments of their homeland. Inspired by Thai, Ayurveda and other Southeast Asian practices, guests can tailor their treatment to suit specific needs, whether that’s dry or with oils, warm or hot, with or without aromas, with one or more therapists. It’s no problem to cater for exactly what your body needs.
Once fully relaxed, guests will be keen for a good feed, and there’s nowhere better for that than Bianco Mare at ME Ibiza, a gorgeous Ibiza restaurant with stunning coastal views that’s best enjoyed in the presence of good company. By day, it’s all about laid-back lunching accompanied by the sound of nearby waves but as the sun sets a more glamorous ambience arrives, transforming beneath the Balearic blanket of stars. Dine on the Italian-inspired menu that pivots from pasta and pizza to specialities like swordfish carpaccio and ends with a famously tasty tiramisu. Needless to say, indulgence on every level is key.
When it’s time to dine, choose from the stylish Bianco Mare restaurant or the magical Radio ME Ibiza Rooftop, where sunsets are spectacular and the vibes are high.
Elsewhere, the Radio ME Ibiza Rooftop Bar is a hotspot for guests and locals alike. A sprawling rooftop terrace with panoramic views of the Mediterranean, this is an Ibiza restaurant and bar in which to see and be seen, ideally from its dazzling infinity pool, one of its bubbling whirlpool tubs or a deluxe Bali bed. A selection of light bites are available throughout the day but things really come alive here at sunset, when the sky blushes its goodbyes sound-tracked by a DJ specialising in blissed-out beats. Monthly full moon parties encompass exactly what makes the white isle so special – make this a priority if you happen to be in town!
In a further display of island-inspired creativity, this year ME Ibiza hosts a special event in collaboration with local artists. Entitled Tanit Gatherings, this first instalment of the brand’s Women Is Art project celebrates the goddess Tanit, bringing together Ibiza’s most artistic minds in a series of dynamic talks, the first of which will be hosted by Ibiza-based Ladio Ceramics founder, Laura de Grinyo. The divinity of the moon, love, fertility, the earth, animals and humanity are all up for discussion so expect spark and insights aplenty and keep your eyes peeled for additional events over the course of the year.
Speaking of love and reasons to celebrate, this summer also looks set to be the busiest ever for weddings on the white isle. After two years of events that were postponed due to restrictions, now is the time for brides and grooms to eagerly step into the spotlight, gathering their friends and family from all over the world to celebrate their nuptials in true Ibiza style. At ME Ibiza, everything needed for a dream destination wedding can be taken care under one very aesthetically pleasing roof. From pre-wedding pampering to outings for your wedding party and a complimentary night’s stay with breakfast for the newlyweds, the resort’s in-house event planning team go above and beyond to make the day as magical as possible. It’s your wedding, your way, with as much creativity, panache and fanfare as you deserve – it’s a Revolutionary Wedding by ME.
In short, this summer is guaranteed to go down as one of the most memorable in Ibiza’s history. ME Ibiza makes a tranquil home away from home for globetrotters on a mission to rediscover the joys of travelling, for Ibiza lovers looking for a place to retreat from the hubbub, and for islanders looking for new places to treat themselves to spa treatments, decadent meals or nights beneath the stars. With that in mind, be sure to book your stay now if you plan on visiting the island as delay could well end in disappointment – the revival of Ibiza starts here and now, and ME Ibiza is set to be at the heart of its rejuvenation.
