Opened in 2017, this sleek beach resort is Nobu’s first property in the Balearics and a prime example of the way in which Ibiza is rebranding itself as a luxury destination. Set on tranquil Talamanca Bay, 2km north of Ibiza Town and 15 minutes’ walk from the clubs and boutiques of Marina Botafoch, Nobu Ibiza blends a chilled beach vibe with attentive service and top-notch facilities, calling itself a ‘playground for grown-ups’ – grown-ups, that is, who would rather be dining on sushi in Nobu or relaxing in a Six Senses Spa than partying till sun-up. Design is a soothing mix of contemporary and traditional, with international pieces set against white-washed walls, wood beams and cane ceilings; the light-filled lobby framing the glittering sea beyond has one of the biggest wow factors on the island. Outside, the pretty pool terrace is furnished with white day beds and parasols, overlooking a ribbon of soft white sand.
Though its appeal is probably strongest to couples, Nobu Ibiza is also very family friendly, with a kids club offering everything from foraging to craft sessions and well as sushi-making lessons and DJ workshops. There is a family pool and all the restaurants cater for children. There are no family rooms, but several of the rooms interconnect and ground-floor Garden View Suites have direct access to the family pool. Cots are available on request.
152 Rooms and Suites, most with sea views, floor-to-ceiling windows and open terraces. All are furnished in natural materials – think marble bathrooms, stone floors and pale linens – in a colour palette of whites, golds, aquas and blues; artisan ceramics, hand-blown pendant lights and leather rugs add an Ibizan aesthetic. Suites boast whirlpool baths and mini cocktail cabinets, though if you’d rather not mix up your own sundowners, a barman will come and do it for you. Some suites have direct access to the main pool.
FOR WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
With its scenic landscape, historic towns and dazzling coastline to explore, not to mention superb watersports, beautiful beaches and great shopping, Ibiza is the perfect honeymoon destination. Even more so now that it has swapped its non-stop party image for something rather more tranquil. Nobu Ibiza is the perfect spot for a honeymoon that is both stylish and fun; a chance to wear your designer beachwear by the pool, drink cocktails as the sun sets then dine on gourmet dishes under the stars. Charter a yacht, rent bikes for the day or take the ferry to the secluded island of Formentera.
