Three different ways to best enjoy the Pitiusse Islands

by Elena Barassi

Barefoot is the solo that characterizes Formentera, a small island with a green soul where even the stars shine brighter and Poseidonia oceanica makes the sea of ​​unparalleled clarity. A single road cuts it horizontally and from this narrow sandy streets unravel which all lead to the sea.

The fluid narrative of Teranka in Formentera

Or in places that contain the very essence of little Pitiuse. A sanctuary with a bohemian spirit that celebrates the surrounding landscape, the Teranka, part of Small Luxury Hotels of the world, is a journey of discovery that involves the spirit and the mind. Syncrasis of the words “tierra” (earth) and “ancla” (anchor), here you enter through an ancient Catalan door and are immediately projected into a universe of art, nature and details which invite you to disconnect from the outside world. A thoughtful and authentic aesthetic that inspires a fluid narrative between quite luxury, contemporary art and hints of flower power that covers walls and terraces in shades of cream, ecru and sand, throwing light blue, blue and mint green points here and there. A summary of the island's color palette, within rough stone walls, where the gray swimming pool is perfectly placed slate with enveloping Balinese beds, the private art collection of the owner Jennica Arazi which blends, in a harmonious path, pieces by local artists, together with exclusive works such as “Irma's Dream” by Jaume Plensa or vintage bronze war bells by Giovanni Ozzola. Behind, a canopy of maritime pines while the horizon opens onto the picturesque Playa Migjorn, among the most pristine on the island, which from the terraces of the rooftop suites Cielo, elegant contemporary coocons, seems even more suggestive. Breakfast at the Garden, in the shade of the olive trees, is barefoot and a careful eulogy to healthy eating expressed in shots of freshly squeezed ginger and various detoxifying juices, but you can also enjoy eggs Benedict and pancakes. And in the evening we go up to the roof refuge: DJ sets, signature cocktails and the sun slowly diving into the sea.

The boho chic atmosphere of Me Ibiza

Away from the decibels that echo since the morning, the Me Ibiza, from the Leading hotels of the world collection is a refuge for adults on the eastern end of the island, in Santa Eularia des Riu, the epitome of a more relaxed and authentic isla bonita. But only half an hour's drive from the nightlife of Playa d'En Bossa. A five-star refuge, the whose epicenter is the central swimming pool framed by Balinese beds and a centuries-old maritime pine, behind which lies a small pier and the talcum powder sand beach. A perfect fusion of escape and hedonism, the Me Melia Ibiza, part of The Leading Hotels of the World, fascinates with that boho and beach chic allure made of rattan and aged white wood which however leaves room for objects and contemporary works of art from bright colors with solo shows by international artists such as the current Oxigen by Cuban artist Harlys Becerra. The indomitable spirit of Ibiza is concentrated around the scenic swimming pool where international DJ sessions blend perfectly with the sound of the waves of the sea, although the elegant rooftop remains a must, reserved and discreet during the day with the infinity pool that creates a perfect unicuum with the sea and in the evening the scene of the best sunsets and delicious artisanal cocktails. Natural light is a common thread that inextricably links the suites with a minimalist Ibizan design, a harmony of whites punctuated by artisanal touches and contemporary decorations, especially those with a private pool or jacuzzi that ensure a panoramic view of the sea.

Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel, the cult address of Isla Blanca

It is the cult address of the Ibizan nights. Legendary and iconic, Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel, part of the Palladium Hotel Group, has made the history of Isla Bonita and is perfect for anyone in the mood to party until the morning. In the heart of Playa d'en Bossa, here you can spend an entire weekend without feeling the need to stick your nose out and, if you want to enjoy the party from a privileged point of view, just go up to the Up Ibiza Sky Society terrace overview on the top floor of the hotel. On the subject of

catering here you can literally go around the world. In the morning, the opulent The Unexpected Breakfast on the beach is essential. A universe of proposals including vegan, vegetarian and classic food stations, a smoothie area, show cooking and even the Circus Candy, which includes six different types of donuts, where you can get lost before starting the day where you relax among king size sun loungers on the beach or on board the ruby ​​red infinity pool. The gastronomic scene does not stop at breakfast, since the proposals are truly for all tastes. From the MONTAUK steakhouse which celebrates the best cuts of meat in the world, to the refined Japanese avant garde of Minami, to the Oyster & Caviar Bar to conclude with The Beach and Amos, the informal but trendy Greek restaurant on the beach. The suites, arranged between The Club and Tower, faithfully reflect the stylistic signature of the hotel: bold, contemporary and all high-tech and completely soundproofed, they have evocative names such as Fashion Victim Room, Top of the world which boasts exceptional views of the stage , an indoor and outdoor hot tub and a large terrace and Pioneer DJ Suite, the latter equipped with a complete music system, including mixer, amplifier and subwoofer.
