A blissful new resort aimed at heightening your spirituality
If a band chose to use the recording studio at the new Six Senses Ibiza resort, the result would surely be one of the most blissed-out, sunshine-infused chill-out albums of all time.
Opening this July, the peaceful resort sits in the peaceful Cala Xarraca at the northern tip of Ibiza, surrounded by 20 acres of farmland. The style of villas and guestrooms is inspired by the farmhouse aesthetic and uses sustainable materials. Architect and developer Jonathan Leitersdorf says the vision of the covefront haven 35 minutes from Ibiza airport is “community, spirituality and celebration.”
Helping guests to achieve these three goals is a garden where they can pick their own vegetables, which will be cooked at one of four organic restaurants, including the Farmers’ Market, which has a tractor next to the dining tables. It’s perhaps no surprise, then, that Six Senses Ibiza will be the first sustainable BREEAM certified resort (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and residential community in the Balearics.
In the summer season from May to October, the beach, pool and full moon dinners are typical pursuits, but in the cooler months from November to April the focus shifts to yoga, fitness and cleansing programmes, helped by the spa, boxing ring, yoga platform and live performance venue.
Beachfront caves are the standout places to rest your head at this new resort that adds a little more magic to this special Spanish island.
