When temperatures start to soar, Ibiza is the only summer fling you need. The White Island presents a Jekyll and Hyde personality – on one side you have sultry beach clubs, slick white yachts, and world-class DJ’s keeping the young and the restless glued to the dancefloor. On the other side, there’s a wilder more holistic vibe that pulls in the boho chic crowd.
Whichever side you choose for rest or play; Ibiza is all about tapping into hedonistic times, embracing social elevation, and letting loose in true summer fashion. For those elite players already packing their luxury beachwear for champagne laced days at Nikki Beach and flaming sunsets at Café Del Mar, we have searched out the hottest spots in Ibiza for summer 2018…
Make a statement arrival on the balmy Balearic Island. A private jet charter can take you from your prior destination to Ibiza Airport in a simple skip across the clouds. Kick back in plush leather chairs, sip a mojito and prepare for touchdown. Those party addicts who have been tripping the streets of Barcelona or vivid Valencia can also take a helicopter transfer and arrive in less than an hour.
Cool hues carry the white island vibe at the achingly hip Nobu Hotel set as Ibiza’s top destination for summer 2018. Sitting on the soft shores of Talamanca Bay, only a stone’s throw from the happening party pull of Ibiza Town and the boutique scene of Marina Botafoch, Nobu offers an idyllic spot for hitting Pascha and returning to your own private oasis.
Suites boast floor to ceiling windows, so you don’t miss a moment of Mediterranean magic and bar tenders even swing by your room to shake you a martini for sipping on your own private terrace. Soothing stone, cool ceramics, and a palette of white linen, blue and gold set the mise-en-scene for poolside lounging, hand-crafted cocktails, and signature spa afternoons.
Sublimotion by Paco Roncero will forever change the way you think about food. An elaborate performance tears down the fourth wall, turning a simple table reservation into a high-tech performance of drama, music, art and design. Celebrated as one of the most expensive restaurants in the world, a booking at Sublimotion will run up a tab in its thousands, but the innovative approach to dining is priceless.
Michelin star chefs, composers, illusionists, designers, and architects work in harmony to curate a five-star, five-senses experience. While previous experiences have included swift scene changes from gothic libraries to futuristic dimensions, sultry south Asian pleasures and being transported to underwater worlds – no two gastronomical adventures are the same. Foie gras doughnuts float in on balloons, cakes seem to levitate and the boundaries between dream and reality blur.
Don your best luxury beachwear, as there is only one way to truly embrace the wonder of the White Island – aboard a luxury yacht charter. We recommend you check out our friends over at Y.CO, who have a fantastic selection of yachts to charter from in Ibiza as well as in our home of Monaco. Pick a super sophisticated yacht with a generous sundeck and a range of tenders and toys and seek out the best anchorages dotting the golden coast. Those seeking what to do in Ibiza and looking to hang with the jet-set elite should drop anchor at Cala Jondal and make a splash at the Blue Marlin Beach Club. Cala Portinatx offers perfect plunging into gin colored waters, and Cala Xarraca is the spot to test your prowess with cliff diving, seabobs, and stargazing from the jacuzzi.
As the playground of millionaires and movie stars – summers in Ibiza never lose their finesse.
