What’s new in Ibiza? The new hotels, restaurants, clubs and plans that await us this summer.
The island where everything is possible returns this summer with more strength than ever. Here is the list of What’s new in Ibiza for this summer: hotels for daydreaming, restaurants where you can see and be seen -and others where you can play the fool-, dinners with a show, beach clubs, exhibitions, open-air cinema, shopping… Ibiza, here we go!
New HOTELS in IBIZA
The Standard Ibiza
(Carrer de Bartomeu Vicent Ramon, 9, Ibiza)
In case you still did not know, The Standard chain chose the beautiful island last summer to open its first hotel in Spain: The Standard Ibiza, which opened its doors last April in the city’s old quarter, opposite Plaza de Vara del Rey.
The design, inspired by the 1960s, pays homage to the chain’s first hotel, The Standard Hollywood, and was designed by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, in collaboration with Oskar Kohnen.
The street-side restaurant, Jara, offers a menu based on local produce, with dishes such as Tartar Jara (roasted tomatoes with mustard and caper vinaigrette, radish and toasted bread) or charcoal-grilled sea bass with garlic sofrito.
The hotel has 53 rooms and suites and the splendid Casa Privada, separate from the main building: a retreat with panoramic views of Dalt Vila, private rooftop pool and bar, fourteen rooms spread over five floors, and gym.
SIX SENSES: The beach caves
(Carrer Camí de sa Torre, 71; San Juan Bautista)
Two years ago, Six Senses Ibiza opened its doors in the crystal-clear Cala Xarraca, in the north of the island. The concept is explained by the architect and developer of the project, Jonathan Leitersdorf: «to capture the authentic experience of community, spirituality and celebration of Ibiza».
Last season, the hotel debuted The Beach Caves, a new space that offers «a unique, eclectic, sophisticated and fun vision around gastronomy, music and wellness». Ben Pundole, a pioneer in the art of hospitality, took the reins as creative director of The Beach Caves with the aim of reflecting «the island’s heritage, enthusiasm and eclectic spirit,».
The Beach Caves houses a restaurant and bar where local produce is fused with Latin American flavors, a private lounge, a speakeasy-style cocktail bar, a party room, a recording studio, six stunning Beach Caves Suites with direct access and ocean views.
Located on the beachfront in the town of Santa Eulalia, W Ibiza returns this season stronger than ever and with a multitude of surprises.
The most acclaimed novelty is undoubtedly its new night club, BELOW, which will feature popular international artists – such as The Martinez Brothers, who kicked off the musical program – to make us enjoy their live sessions.
In addition, W Ibiza’s programming will also include film screenings, pool parties, pop up chefs, morning meditations and detox brunches. Another of the hotel’s hot spots -in addition to its restaurant, La Llama- will be its already well-known rooftop, Glow, with an infinity pool overlooking the sea, morning yoga classes and delicious signature cocktails at nightfall.
Eating (and dining) in Ibiza means opening up an (almost) infinite range of possibilities: in addition to the most coveted place-to-be, this year there are a good handful of novelties that are well worth the waiting list.
Cañitas Maite Stays at CAN DOMO IBIZA
(Carretera Cala Llonga, Km 7.6, 07840 Santa Eulària des Riu)
Cañitas Maite (Casas Ibáñez, Albacete) this summer is staying at one of the best agritourisms on the island: Can Domo Ibiza.

The famous Parisian restaurant Monkey Pigalle -founded by Antony Faotto, Ben Janaud and David Janaud- opens again on April 27th after its success las year. With a boho-chic style and a Mediterranean and zero kilometer cuisine under the leadership of chef Kevin Cosma.

The menu features dishes such as grilled octopus with mini grilled corn and avocado, burnt cauliflower with tahini and yellow curry or Monkey dessert. It also offers magnificent views of the sunset.
(Carrer del Romaní, 07820 Sant Antoni de Portmany)
After its great reception last season, 528 Ibiza returns with a proposal full of novelties that combines gastronomy, spectacle and a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
The concept, created by Jose Corraliza (Heart Ibiza, Cirque du Soleil) and Andy Mckay (Pikes, Manumission) welcomes customers in the hills of Benimussa, west of the island, offering a creative cuisine to which this year joins an offer of gourmet street food and live music in the new Garden area.
The entire gastronomic section is in charge of chefs Gonzalo Aragüez and Massimo Bartelloni, who invite diners to embark on a culinary journey with influences from five continents.
This season, coming again with a whole new experience.
We all know that the Ibizan night never disappoints, as every year, we recommend the places that like every season, never fail.

Island Hospitality, the team behind Park Chinois -the iconic Asian restaurant in London- arrived last summer on the island with Club Chinois, a new nightclub that occupies the former headquarters of Heart Ibiza and became another of Ibiza’s best novelties last season.
