In spite of being one of the most in-demand holiday destinations in the world right now, Ibiza remains an island with untold secrets. An unbeatable nightlife scene, picturesque beaches, and candy floss sunsets are certainly some of the island’s well-known credentials, but when you scratch beneath the surface, there are a myriad of treasures still waiting to be discovered, extending far beyond the beautiful landscape. It’s not only nature that makes this island extraordinary – it’s also the people who live on it. With this in mind, 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza has launched a special membership discount scheme for island residents as a way to say thank you to all those who contribute to making Ibiza such a special place.
Located between the quaint little cove of Cala Codolar and the dramatically beautiful beach of Cala Conta, 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza is a relaxing sanctuary where troubles seem to just float away on the breeze. Set atop dramatic cliffs that look out towards the endless horizon and sparkling Mediterranean Sea beyond, it’s the perfect place to take some time out during the busy summer months, offering respite from an island that’s ramping up to full capacity. As anyone who lives on the island knows, stepping away from routine and rebooting mind and soul can work wonders, especially at this time of year.
The first step in qualifying for the 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza Resident Program is to subscribe to the resort’s newsletter, via the official website, where a checkbox allows you to identify yourself as a local. After subscribing, you’ll be requested to send proof of your island residency via email to [email protected] – once approved, you can collect your membership card, and start accessing its many benefits, from the hotel lobby. As a member, locals have access to a range of specially designed offers covering everything from luxury pool passes to sumptuous spa treatments and dining in one of the resort’s fantastic restaurants.
When the heat is on, your first stop should be the 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza Infinity Pool – what better way to unwind than alongside this dazzling, adults-only pool with views of the legendary Es Vedra in the distance? You’ll need to make a prior reservation, and let the team know you’re a member of the Resident Program and then a discount will be applied to the standard rate of 90€ (this includes 30€ for a luxurious sun lounger and towel plus a 60€ minimum spend on food and drink). After spending an entire day relaxing poolside, you’ll return home feeling like you’ve been on vacation.
Day visitors to 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza also have access to the world class spa, Pure Seven, a haven for health, healing and wellbeing. Offering a range of amazing treatments, each delivered by a highly trained therapist, time spent here whizzes past in a blissed-out haze. It’s the perfect spot for recharging frazzled bodies and minds, or just simply for a spot of well-earned personal indulgence. Opt for the Pure Seven Signature massage to renew a sense of inner calm, or to give your complexion a mid-season glow, try one of the ESPA face treatments tailored to your skin’s needs. With a prior reservation, members with valid cards receive 20% off every treatment, making it even easier to completely unwind.
That same discount also applies at two of the exceptional restaurants at 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza. At Cone Club, for instance, a member of the Resident Program can invite up to three people (maximum table of four) to dine among the brightly coloured decor while looking out on the sparkling Mediterranean and tucking into a feast designed for sharing. Specialising in dishes served in a relaxed but magical setting, the menu focuses on the freshest cuts of fish and meat cooked on the grill, served with delectable sides and the finest wines. Open daily from 1pm to midnight, Cone Club is an ideal spot for both lunch and dinner, and cocktails in between as the sun plunges into the sea for the nightly Sunset Rituals experience.
Upstairs, The View at 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza lives quietly up to its name. Here, members can again invite up to three friends (table of maximum four guests) to join them in relishing the exhilarating flavours of modern Asian cuisine – think the finest fish and meat prepared on the traditional Japanese Robata grill – while glorying in the restaurant’s unrivalled panoramic vistas. The View is also open for breakfast until midday, so arrive early and start the day right with an incredible buffet, à la carte options, juices, aromatic coffee and even cava, should you be in the mood to elebrate. For members of the Resident Program who book in advance and present their cards, a 20% discount is applied to the final bill.
Wherever you are in the hotel, enjoying the island like a holidaymaker, but with the perks of being a local, take the time to raise a glass to the team who created this much-needed program. On an island that caters so heavily to the tourism trade, it’s wonderful to know there’s a place – especially one as beautiful as 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza– that appreciates the residents on the frontline and behind the scenes. Surely this scheme won’t remain a secret for long – be sure to sign up and enjoy before summer’s out.
