We’re still not sure if this is going to be our penultimate or our last Ibiza newsletter – we’re fickle like that. But we will say this. Ibiza isn’t just for summer, it’s year round. So if you haven’t been yet, never fear – you can go anytime. That said, this year was special: busy but not rammed, and with clubs closed, there was more time to enjoy things without racing around. If you can, get a trip in – this will be a year to remember.

Extended Season
Try something new
With more hotels open year round than ever and almost every business trying to extend the season, we definitely have Ibiza 365 on the mind. And to occupy our time, we’re looking to do things we haven’t done before – such as Ibiza Horse Valley, a charity that helps mistreated or abandoned horses. Located in the north in San Juan, groups of eight go out for a ride that lasts approx. four hours. Really, this is as much for the horses as it is for you – and the charity are quick to note that this is not a riding school.

Casa Jondal
Rafael Zafra
At times, it feels like every press release cites a chef as having spent time at the famed El Bulli, but in Rafael Zafra’s case, he not only spent time there, he was the head chef. He’s also involved with Estimar (BCN/MAD) and is ex-Heart (Ibiza), so basically his pedigree is first class. You’ve probably heard about Casa Jondal by now – it’s had rave reviews everywhere – but if you haven’t been yet, try to get in to see what the fuss is about. And as they’re aiming to be open until the first week of November, you should have an easier time getting a table soon. This is simplicity at its best, with a seafood focus.
Cova Santa
Gastroclub and Mixology
If you’re after some dancing with your dinner, then this is the spot. Yes, they say there’s no dancing allowed, but with DJs like Sven Väth (tonight) and the Rumors crew (14 Sept), there’s definitely some swaying… Check their events calendar for all the dates.
Extend Your Summer with Aero
Partner content
“We believe travel should still leave you speechless,” says Aero CEO Uma Subramanian. Indeed, from booking to touchdown, traveling with Aero’s private jet service is an extended ‘wow’ moment. On board their meticulously designed jets, guests can expect a curated selection of artisanal snacks and cocktails, immersive mood lighting, a Bongiovi Acoustic Labs sound system, and hand-stitched Italian leather seats. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered and obsessed over. Enjoy direct service between Ibiza and Mykonos in a matter of hours. Routes from London launch later this month.

All flights are operated by Aero Guernsey Ltd., a registered Guernsey air carrier.
Jade Jagger x W Ibiza Cocktail Set
With its own suitcase
To celebrate the launch of W Ibiza, Jade, who has a long history with the island (she lived there for several years), has created a bespoke cocktail set including a solid silver shaker with palm tree emblem, cut crystal glasses and a mini Globetrotter-style leather suitcase (we’ll have the orange one please), complete with marble interiors and tags. Luxe!

Beat Hotel Goes Balearic
October 6-8
Sponsored listing
Glasto favourite Beat Hotel is hosting a three day extravaganza in Ibiza (after their most recent stop in Marrakesh) across two of the island’s most-loved (and Mambo Group owned) venues, La Torre, the sunset spot and hotel, and Cala Gracioneta, the beach restaurant. There are also a lot of UJ faves participating: Barrafina will be doing three nights of tapas at La Torre, Berber & Q will be bringing their smoke and fire cooking to Cala G, Patrón are on drinks with menus at both venues, and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard will be leading a ‘modular synth workout on the beach’, which – because it’s Joe – sounds unmissable. There will be a varied music and cultural program across all three days, and the Friday night finale will see Ibiza legend Alfredo go b2b with Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy. Book flights or tune in online – it’s being broadcast for those who can’t make it. See you there!
Burberry pop up with @antonioli_ibiza
TB Summer Monogram Takeover
Around the Isla
So this collab / activity is over, but we feel it’s still worth mentioning in case you didn’t see it, as it felt fresh… Burberry’s TB Summer Monogram took over Casa Jondal using the logo and associated prints to ‘dress’ the beach restaurant and beds. They also had a pop up store (a partnership with @antonioli_ibiza), which included an exterior takeover, an inflatable ‘Sharky B’ (their virtual character and NFT) , and the TB Summer Monogram collection.
Balearic Sunrise
Early to bed early to rise
Want some chilled beats? MAV have put together a Balearic sunrise playlist for us.
OD Hotels
New Gallery
Speaking of NFTs, the OD Hotels (we stay at Ocean Drive Talamanca frequently, as you likely know) have always been committed to supporting artists – with exhibitions, promotion, and even their own art award (2018). Now, they’ve launched an OD Hotels NFT Gallery, with the aim of helping artists navigate this new world, and giving them greater visibility in general. Stay tuned and follow them for more info.
La Torre del Canóningo
Dalt Vila abode
We stayed here a couple of years ago, and the location was great, but the space needed a refurb. Someone obviously agreed, as it was renovated last year by the acclaimed Lázaro Rosa-Violán – and the results look good. If you love Dalt Vila (this hotel is built into the UNESCO walls), then this is a really great option.
Rumor Rosé
Le chic
If you’ve been seeing this rosé around the White Isle, it’s for good reason – it’s great. Available at some of the Balearic’s favourites (El Chiringuito and La Torre, Es Molí de Sal in Formentera and Cala Bonita), give it a try!
El Silencio
Lunch to sunset
It’s no secret that the 2021 ‘party’ is late lunch to sunset, and El Silencio is a great place to do it. Feet in sand, start with guacamole and potato waffles (or hand cut crisps to you and I), pitchers of gazpacho, and Jean’s avocado (avocado with egg inside), then move on to seafood paella, fish of the day with ratatouille, tuna and grapefruit, and finish with their signature warm cookie, ToSHARE (which is also the name of Pharrell and chef Jean Imbert’s restaurant concept). They also have a pool, beachfront tables, and of course, this is one of the best coves for sunsets on the island. Watch out for special DJ nights.
Terra Masia
All About Grow Your Own
Topic of the day
If Ibiza ‘21 chat revolves around NFT, crypto, fungi and the influx of millionaires (yup), it’s also all about farming – which isn’t really surprising for a place where farm-to-table is very much the norm (and almost expected), with several of the best restaurants growing their own. On the hippy front, Tierra Iris is a regenerative land that practices syntropic farming. We’re not sure how you stay here, but they do seem to host people, as well as run hikes and other community-based things. Terra Masia is Ibiza’s largest certified organic farm; visit to check out ‘taste the farm’ and buy veg from their market. And it’s not just ‘farmers’ getting their hands dirty: Calvin Harris is farming, and Patrick Cox is growing things too. Lastly, there’s an organic farm-to-table experience somewhere in San Mateo (at a ‘secret location’) called Juntos that sounds pretty great as well. Seems like Old McDonald has had a gloss up.
Star Boats
Drive yourself
So, it’s not a Wally. Or as chic as a llaüt. But we like the idea of these. Get in, drive yourself around, no license needed.
Seventy One Gin
By Mert Alas
You likely know that Mert Alas is one of the biggest fashion photographers around. So it comes as no surprise that his new gin – which was four years in the making – looks more like a luxury perfume, with packaging and a price tag to match. It supposedly smells great too. We’d expect nothing less, and we can’t wait to get our hands on a bottle.
OKU Ibiza
OKU Ibiza
Review for The Telegraph
We recently stayed at OKU, the new five-star hotel in San Antonio, to review it for The Telegraph. With wabi-sabi design (featuring natural materials), an Asian restaurant with an ex-SUSHISAMBA head chef, a spa that uses organic products, and chilled beats throughout, this is one of the properties that’s leading the way for San Antonio 2.0.
Sant Francesc
Live Music
Sept and October
Music under the stars in Formentera? Yes, please. Check the dates, and find a way to be there.

Alfred Ibiza
Download now
Don’t feel like going out? Never fear, Alfred is here. The (more design-led) Deliveroo of Ibiza, they have a great selection of restaurants, as well as alcohol, groceries and healthy options for juices and feel-good dining. We like their penguin mascot, Alfred, too.
Room Caleta
Ca Sa Vilda Marge
Close to Six Senses
So, want to be by Six Senses, but not at Six Senses? Then this is your spot. Ask for our favourite room Caleta, which has a chic private terrace and two deck chairs. They may not really have a restaurant here (although ask and they will get you almost anything), but the staff are superb, so you really will want for nothing. You’re also walking distance from Xarraca, which is a quaint cove with a local seafood restaurant; walk over the rocks, and you’ll find some of the best swimming on the island – private and clear. Xuclar and its magical chiringuito are close too, as is the aforementioned 6S.
Cala Xarraca
