Whether your idea of a romantic vacation means spa treatments and poolside lounging or dancing the night away at a club, Ibiza has it all. The island in the Mediterranean has gorgeous beaches, a thriving party scene, and plenty of excellent restaurants. We visited the area’s most popular hotels to sleep in the beds, use the facilities, and check out the atmosphere. So if you’re taking a trip with your significant other, you’ve come to the right place. Here are the most romantic hotels in Ibiza!
Hotel Mirador de Dalt Vila, a 1904 town house built within the old walled quarter of Dalt Via, is one of the most luxuriously romantic boutique properties in Ibiza. The 12 beautifully decorated rooms spare no attention to detail, incorporating seven types of marble in keeping with the style of the original building, while adding free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, and hydromassage tubs in the marble bathrooms. There's a small outdoor swimming pool, and services include free round-trip airport transfers, a private yacht for day trips, and a butler who'll unpack your bags. While the hotel is within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and art galleries, be aware that the nearest beach is a 10-minute drive away.
With no official website and a secluded location on the southwestern side of Ibiza near San Jose village, the adult-only Can Xuxu is a hidden gem. Discerning couples are drawn to this high-end property for its quiet, intimate vibe, exclusive yet laid-back atmosphere, and gorgeous decor, much of it Asian inspired. Most of the 12 rooms are in the main building, but Suites are housed in beautiful wooden Javanese pavilions -- all decorated with artifacts that the owner brought back from his trips round the world. Set at the center of this landscaped tropical property, the lovely pool is surrounded by palm trees and double Balinese daybeds. The beach is not within walking distance, but is within a 10-minute drive.
Hacienda Na Xamena is one of Ibiza’s most luxurious hotels, and is known among locals and visitors alike for its beautiful cascading spa pools offering stunning views. Its 77 large, bright rooms with standalone jetted tubs and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean make it a popular pick among couples celebrating special occasions. But its three pools, three restaurants, small fitness center, and two boats for private day trips draw guests of all kinds and ages. The hotel's remote location atop a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean guarantees peace and quiet -- but guests may want to rent a car to move around as beaches, restaurants, and attractions are all at least a 10-minute drive away.
Set on a farm about a 10-minute drive outside of Port de Sant Miguel in Ibiza, Agroturismo Sa Vinya d’en Palerm is a natural pick for those looking for quiet. Its five rooms are rustic and charming, and all have unique details and amenities such as hydromassage showers or tubs, furnished patios, and four-poster beds. There are a small restaurant offering a seasonal menu made with produce grown on-site, a lovely pool with padded loungers, and a room for yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes. Freebies such as breakfast, loaner bikes, Wi-Fi, and parking add value. Those who want to be on the water in Port de Sant Miguel can expect to pay significantly more for this caliber of property.
The 112-room Aguas de Ibiza is a luxury pick a short walk from the beach in quiet Santa Eulalia. Big, contemporary rooms offer Bang & Olufsen plasma TVs, free Wi-Fi, and pillow menus, and some have sea views and standalone tubs on the terrace. This sleek property offers a great spa with hydrotherapy areas, treatment cabins, and salon services; a Mediterranean restaurant; a well-equipped fitness center with group classes, and meeting rooms. The highlight here, however, is the rooftop area, complete with a hopping bar, tapas restaurant by celeb chef Sergi Arola, small pool, and panoramic views. Just note that some common spaces are showing wear and tear, and that a few rooms have views of a parking lot.
This 24-room luxury boutique is known for its beautiful gardens dotted with Bali beds and orange trees, and its stylish Asian-inspired decor. Although it is a little busier at times than one might expect of a hotel that advertises itself as an agritourism property, it does offer numerous amenities for a relaxing vacation, including a beautiful spa, a couple of pools, a beach club on Cala Nova, and a gym with group and private yoga and Pilates classes.
Intimate Can Pujolet is arguably one of the most unique agritourism properties on Ibiza. With a remote location, only 10 beautiful rooms with rustic decor and terraces overlooking the mountain, and a large saltwater pool, the property is a great pick for those who want to get away from it all. The restaurant serves tasty regional cuisine made with fresh produce from the hotel’s garden, and a free healthy breakfast by the pool. There is no fitness center here, but those looking to get some exercise can hike to the gorgeous cliffs nearby, with the added bonus of stunning sunsets.
Housed in an iconic and charming Art Deco building, the 52-room Hotel Es Vive is a chic, upscale, party property in a quiet area a block from a sandy beach in Ibiza Town. Poolside DJ sessions, a top-notch restaurant, a famous nightclub, and a gorgeous all-white rooftop lounge with panoramic sea views make this one of the most sought-after hotels in Ibiza. Though many rooms are on the small side, decor is stylish, and amenities are up to date, including flat-screen TVs, minibars, free Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning; some have balconies with gorgeous views. All this style and cool atmosphere doesn’t come cheap, but the vast majority of guests agree that the experience is worth every dollar.
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 116-room Palladium Hotel Palmyra is an upper-middle-range all-inclusive hotel located directly on a long sandy beach within walking distance of Sant Antoni’s nightlife. Popular with couples of all ages, this adults-only hotel has a quiet atmosphere and contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, balconies, and air-conditioning. With padded loungers, direct beach access, and a snack bar with shaded seating, the outdoor pool is the highlight here. The hotel also offers a well-equipped fitness center, two solid restaurants, and daily entertainment. However, there is a fee for Wi-Fi, and since the beach is very near the port, it can be less pristine compared to other nearby areas.
