Take a look at the best luxury hotels in Playa d’en Bossa.
The 493-room Hard Rock is -- along with neighboring Ushuaïa -- one of a handful of true luxury hotels in Ibiza. With its 16,000-square-foot spa, indoor and outdoor pools, rooms and suites with swim-up pools, five restaurants, Fender guitar rentals, curated playlists, and a Michelin-star chef, the Hard Rock draws a bevy of celebrity guests and well-heeled couples. Although it can be loud and party-oriented, it's also kid-friendly, with the Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club, a nursery, and playground. The property, located on Ibiza's largest beach, is visually arresting, and rooms are among the most stylish in the area. Be aware that planes can sometimes be heard landing at the nearby airport.
On a beachfront in a quiet area of Playa d'en Bossa, the upscale Grand Palladium Palace Ibiza Resort & Spa has two large freshwater pools, three theme restaurants, a fully equipped gym, a modern spa with an indoor/outdoor pool, extensive sports facilities, and kids’ and teens’ clubs, plus daily entertainment. Spacious, bright rooms range from Doubles to Master Suites with two bedrooms, and have balconies or terraces as well as bathrooms with jetted tubs and showerheads. Some of the rooms have dated decor not up to scratch for this caliber, while others have been updated. Packed with family-friendly facilities, the Grand Palladium Palace Ibiza is also within a five-minute walk of Ibiza’s famous nightlife.
The 217-room Torre del Mar sits directly on a sandy beach in northern Playa d’en Bossa. This upscale property includes two indoor pools, an outdoor pool, a tennis court, fitness center, small spa, two restaurants, a lounge bar, meeting and event space, and hip, sleek rooms with furnished balconies. A quiet and relaxing vibe pervades here, but Torre del Mar is close enough to the action -- including some of Ibiza’s top nightclubs -- to make it a solid pick for travelers who want to experience the island’s famous nightlife.
Directly on a beach in a quiet area of Playa d’en Bossa, the luxurious Grand Palladium White Island Resort & Spa has a pool with underwater loungers and kiddy section, a buffet restaurant, and daily entertainment. Additionally, it offers guests free access to facilities at neighboring sister property Grand Palladium Palace Ibiza Resort & Spa, which has themed restaurants, a fully equipped fitness center, an upscale spa, kids’ and teens’ clubs, and two more pools. The resort’s 430 appealing, contemporary rooms have wooden floors, a bright color palette, and furnished balconies or terraces. Some rooms are a little tight, while units overlooking the bar area can get some noise at night. Opened in mid-2015, the Grand Palladium White Island Resort & Spa is a more luxurious and stylish option than its sister resort.
The luxury adult-only Ushuaïa is hands down the most stylish place to be for those wanting to be right in the throes of Ibiza’s world-famous nightlife. Not only does it host the best international DJs several times a week but also has all the ingredients for a world-class party-oriented stay, including rooms with DJ turntables, blackout curtains, erotica kits, high-tech amenities, and a striking design, along with two stylish pools; a rooftop bar with some of the best views around; and seven restaurants and bars -- all of which come at some of Ibiza's highest prices. The neighboring Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza is one of the only Playa d’en Bossa hotels that can compare, but the rooms here are arguably a touch more stylish.
The adult-only Santos Ibiza Coast Suites is an upscale hotel with a hip contemporary vibe and a rock 'n' roll theme. Its beachfront setting on the edge of Playa d’en Bossa's nightlife hub is perfect for those who prefer to do their post-clubbing chill slightly away from the action. The relaxed pool area has plenty of daybeds, while poolside DJs provide background tunes. The 38 trendy suites all provide kitchenettes and lounge areas with music systems, and many feature great sea views. Slow Wi-Fi can be annoying and there's little in the way of spa or fitness facilities, though overall it's certainly one of the cooler kids on the block. Those after more lively, all-day partying will be better off at Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel, which hosts famous DJ sessions.
