From laid-back luxury to sassy glamour, Ibiza and Formentera’s hotel scene is set to welcome some fabulous new additions this summer.

With the temperatures slowly rising and the island waiting to welcome back international visitors, there are some exciting new accommodation options popping up all over Ibiza!

Whether it's bohemian chic or high-octane glamour, a seaside view or five-star spa facilities you're after, you are truly spoilt for choice where the White Isle's hotel scene is concerned.

We have rounded up some of the most exciting new openings on Ibiza for 2021 to inspire your next visit. Some of the properties listed tentatively opened their doors in the short and interrupted season of 2020 – so while not technically 'brand new', we felt they deserve to be showcased once more to dazzle you in all their glory this year!

Ibiza Town

The cosmopolitan capital of the island remains a top choice for visitors, combining history and Mediterranean charm with a vibrant restaurant and bar scene. Framing the atmospheric and vibrant port of Ibiza Town, there is a lot to see and do.


Ibiza Corso Hotel & Spa

Located in the glamorous Marina Botafoch area, Ibiza Corso Hotel & Spa overlooks the entrance of Ibiza Town's port – the perfect spot from which to witness the yachts glide in at sunset. An iconic presence on the island's hotel scene, the five-star property has been continuously updated and upgraded over the years - and has been given an extensive makeover for 2021 overseen by architect Jose María García Sanchez.

Guest will be able to enjoy spectacular panoramic views on the iconic silhouette of UNESCO World Heritage site Dalt Vila and Ibiza's sister island Formentera after all front-facing room terraces were opened up with glass walls as part of the renovations. The work done to the facade of the hotel has also improved sun and noise protection on the terraces and within the rooms to ensure guests can experience maximum relaxation.

Sustainability was another key factor of the impressive overhaul, using primarily reusable and recycled materials as well as enabling the hotel to cut down drastically on electricity consumption for lighting and airconditioning.

As well as its own opulent Corso restaurant, on the ground floor of the hotel guests will find the Ibiza outpost of the internationally renowned STK grill house chain, famous for its tasty cuts and vibrant dinner entertainment. And when you need a break from it all, the 700m2 spa - with glass walls to take in the views on Dalt Vila – invites for some serious pampering!


San Antonio

The lively resort on Ibiza's sunset side has a reputation for its party scene, but experienced an influx of stylish boutique accommodation and exciting dining options in recent years – bringing with it a trendy, more grown-up crowd.


Oku Ibiza

‘Laidback luxury' is the name of the game for the hip Oku Hotels brand - it is literally their tagline - and they have nailed the aesthetic.

Modern lines and natural materials such as wood, straw and plenty of lush foliage come together to give the impression of a trendy penthouse – if you picked it up and planted it in a tropical jungle. Located just a stone's throw from Cala Gracio beach and its beloved little sister Cala Gracioneta, the five-star Oku Ibiza offers a stylish hideaway from all the action nearby San Antonio is famous for.

This year, the fully opened hotel will boast a spa as well as four onsite restaurants and bars – headed up by former SUSHISAMBA Executive Chef Mark Vaessen - you'll never want to leave!


Santa Eulalia

It's a big year for the friendly resort of Santa Eulalia del Rio as the influx of luxury hotels and restaurants continues to shake up the local scene. With no less than three new hotels elevating the town's accommodation offering, there's a lot to be excited about!


Nativo Hotel Ibiza

Located in the tranquil Siesta neighbourhood not far from the bustling town centre, Nativo Hotel brings the Tropics to the White Isle thanks to its beautiful – and plentiful - outdoor areas. Turquoise swimming pools are surrounded by man-made mini beaches with white sand while cabana-style daybeds invite you to kick back surrounded by jungle greenery.

The suites boast spectacular sea views and some even come with their own hot tubs, while the hotel interiors combine minimalist bohemian chic with enchanted forest vibes.

With impressive views, plenty of lounge areas and another pool to cool off in, the rooftop is another breath-taking space to be enjoyed. Nativo guests can also enjoy access to the Revival Spa by Clarins, which is just a short drive away. A hip new four-star addition to the area!


Hotel Riomar

The newly revamped four-star Hotel Riomar Ibiza adds a touch of modern elegance combined with a retro Mediterranean twist to the Santa Eulalia seafront. Part of the Tribute Portfolio group, the property wows with its trendy yet tasteful design as well as a carefully curated wellness and culinary offering.

With a focus on helping their guests to relax and rebalance, the hotel offers yoga and pilates classes as well as meditation and tea ceremonies in its exotic ‘secret garden' space Tribe, which will also host live music sessions.

Two further eateries – the Côte Moderne breakfast café and the elegant Ocean Brasserie & Bar – invite guests to savour their healthy yet indulgent menus.


W Ibiza

Part of the renowned Marriot Hotels group, the hip five-star W Ibiza caused a splash when it arrived on the shores of Santa Eulalia's city beach in late 2019. And while it's not technically a brand new opening for 2021, we haven't really had the chance to experience this trendy destination in full swing yet!

The design pays homage to Ibiza's bohemian vibe while maintaining the W brand's signature cutting-edge style. Attracting a cosmopolitan clientele from all over the globe, with poolside DJ sets and no less than three onsite eateries to its name - rooftop grill restaurant La Llama, healthy vegan and vegetarian café Ve Ibiza and the elegant seaside restaurant and beach club Chiringuito Blue - the W Ibiza is bound to establish itself as one of Santa Eulalia's most glamorous hotspots.


Portinatx

The quaint but charming resort in the far north of Ibiza is surrounded by natural beauty and secret coves - and the arrival of the first five-star hotel is firmly putting it on the map of the discerning traveller.


Six Senses Ibiza

The beautiful and rugged coastline of Portinatx will be receiving an injection of glamour when the spectacular Six Senses Ibiza opens its doors this summer.

The luxury hotel and spa resort will be brimming with all the latest and greatest creature comforts while paying homage to the island's traditional architecture and their signature ‘barefoot luxury' aesthetic.

As well as their signature out-of-this-world spa facilities, the Six Senses Ibiza will be boasting four organic onsite restaurants, the ‘beach caves' live music and entertainment venue, a recording studio, art gallery, immersive fashion space and much more (click here for the full opening announcement)!


Formentera

Just a short 30-minute boat ride across the sea from its big sister Ibiza, the tranquil island paradise of Formentera has become one of the Balearics' most exclusive addresses. Famous for its breathtaking white sands, crystal waters and fabulous restaurants, it's worth a visit any day!


Casa Pacha

One of the most iconic brands to come out of Ibiza, after more than 50 years on the island the Pacha crew is finally making a move across the waters to Formentera.

In the spirit of ‘returning to their roots', Casa Pacha is situated in a stunning location overlooking the pure white sands of Migjorn beach. The vibe is natural, understated luxury inspired by the simplicity and tranquility of its island home – the original vibe of the hippy era that birthed the twin cherries cult.

With only 14 rooms and suites and a traditional beachside chiringuito, the ambience is 'boutique and chic' – a stylish, grown-up accommodation offering for the discerning yet conscious traveller. Make sure to check out the Gran Premium Dunes rooms, which allow you to stroll straight of bed and right onto the beach!
