Step inside the island’s newest stunning wedding venue, luxury Agroturismo Can Sastre.

Ibiza’s popularity as a wedding destination continues to rise, which means brides and grooms to be need to plan well ahead if they want to secure the best locations on their desired wedding date. Many of the top Ibiza wedding venues reach their limited capacity for events more than a year in advance – which means either accepting you’ll have an extra-long engagement or deciding to look for a new venue. Enter Can Sastre…

A beautiful Agroturismo in the heart of the island, the hotel was taken over by husband and wife duo Raymond and Bibi van der Hout in 2018 and given an entirely new lease of life. Palm trees, citrus orchards and lush lawns complement the chic Scandi-meets-Ibiza aesthetic and sense of peace and tranquillity inside its gates. In addition to operating as a luxury hotel, the venue has now opened itself up as a wedding venue and offers unlimited possibilities in terms of decoration, configuration, catering and style. Not to mention availability for the 2019 wedding season!

Working alongside the who’s who of the Ibiza wedding industry, Raymond and Bibi can help couples turn their Pinterest boards into reality; if you can dream it, they can make it happen. It all starts with the layout of your event – imagine rows of rustic wooden benches on the lawn, with a floral archway set up for you to declare your wedding vows. Envision moving through the property into the lush orchard space, where long communal tables could be placed beneath the trees for an alfresco wedding feast. Perhaps you find inspiration in the chic, poolside setting for cocktails; then of course, there’s the potential for makeshift dance floors or stages for entertainment in the adjacent grassy meadows – the sky’s the limit… quite literally if you’re thinking of fireworks displays!

The sophisticated simplicity of the styling at Can Sastre makes it easy to use as a starting point; a blank canvas, if you will. The neutral colour palettes used throughout the outdoor furnishings can be offset in any shades you like and the hundreds of trees, bushes, plants and vines are practically begging to be decorated with thousands of fairylights. After dark, lanterns and candles can be placed throughout the gardens to create a secret garden type of ambience – all spaces can be easily adapted to suit whatever theme you’ve chosen for your Ibiza wedding, be it boho-chic, 1001 nights, all-white, black-tie, garden party, glittering gold, earthy and natural or others.

There’s also plenty of space on the property for mobile bars or food trucks to be set up – whether they’re serving signature cocktails designed just for you or snacks in between the ceremony and the dinner. One of the advantages of choosing a venue like Can Sastre when it comes to catering is that you can bring in any external supplier you like rather than be limited to the venue’s own menu. If you want a seafood spectacular – you’ve got it. Giant paellas, Mediterranean buffets, classic barbecues, hipster street food trucks, formal sit-down fine dining style menus, full vegan feasts or any kind of creative twist on your favourite cuisine. Spanish tapas, sushi, German, Italian, Korean, Thai, Moroccan, Mexican… it’s your wedding, they’re your taste buds and Can Sastre have the contacts to satisfy them.

While the sprawling hotel grounds are like something out of fairytale gardens, the accommodation offering at Can Sastre is more intimate – just four suites are available, each dwelling extremely spacious and stylish, finished to the highest possible standards. The hotel must be booked exclusively by the wedding party for a minimum of five days to ensure 100% privacy and discretion surrounding your event. This gives you time to ease into the surroundings; couples and their close families and friends can settle in and feel at home before the big day, and then have time to relax and wind down once it’s all over. There’s no dashing around between venues for preparation or worrying about the traffic between locations – absolutely everything you need is found within the gates of Can Sastre.

With backgrounds in the hospitality industry, owning and operating popular beach clubs in Holland and here in Ibiza, Raymond and Bibi – who are also keen international travellers – have dedicated many years to the pursuit of their clients’ happiness. With the acquisition of Can Sastre, they now feel placed to do this on a much more personal level, particularly with wedding clients. Getting to know each couple and learning to understand their needs, tastes and desires while designing their wedding is of utmost importance – their warmth, willingness to help and ultra-professional manner making them a dream for couples to work with.

In addition to weddings, Can Sastre is also available for private events, from big birthdays and one-off celebrations to corporate affairs and more, with the same five-day exclusive booking policy applied. Right now, this Ibiza wedding venue is one of the island’s best kept secrets but once the 2019 wedding season kicks off and happy couples or wedding planners begin sharing the most Instagram-able moments from weddings at Can Sastre with the world, you can expect it to join the ranks of the most popular venues on the island. So what’s left to think about? Pop the question, set the date and book that venue before someone else does!
