Six Senses Ibiza presenta una nueva dimensión de la hospitalidad en la isla balear las cuatro estaciones del año

Descubrir y enamorarse de Ibiza en invierno. El primer resort de Six Senses en España ocupa una posición privilegiada en el norte de Ibiza para conectar con uno mismo, los demás y el mundo alrededor. Situado en las montañas de Cala Xarraca, con impresionantes vistas al mar y el atardecer, Six Senses Ibiza es el nuevo refugio del Mediterráneo.

IBIZA, 22 noviembre 2021- Situado en el norte de Ibiza, Six Senses Ibiza invita a disfrutar de los placeres de la isla en la intimidad del invierno, un paraíso natural que deleitará con su agradable clima y una luz sorprendente.

Inaugurado en julio de 2021, Six Senses Ibiza es el nuevo refugio del Mediterráneo para ser disfrutado las cuatro estaciones del año; el paraíso escondido donde celebrar esta Navidad.

Concebido por el arquitecto y visionario Jonathan Leitersdorf con la misión de capturar la auténtica experiencia de Ibiza de comunidad, espiritualidad y celebración, Six Senses Ibiza ocupa una posición privilegiada en Cala Xarraca, una cala mágica con vistas despejadas al atardecer y una energía especial. El abanico de experiencias evolucionan al ritmo de las estaciones para celebrar el bienestar pionero, la música, el arte, la moda, la espiritualidad, la exploración culinaria y la cultura, todo sinónimo de Ibiza.

Diseño sostenible 

Impulsado por sus propias fuentes de energía renovables -hasta un 51 por ciento actualmente- y con cero uso de plásticos desechables, Six Senses Ibiza es la primera comunidad turística y residencial de las Islas Baleares en lograr la certificación sostenible BREEAM, la evaluación líder mundial de la sostenibilidad en el ámbito de la construcción y un nuevo punto de referencia para el sector inmobiliario sostenible en todo el mundo.

“Six Senses Ibiza es un reflejo de las vibraciones naturales y la vitalidad de las Baleares”, explica Jonathan Leitersdorf. “Al canalizar el sentido único de comunidad y celebración de Ibiza, hemos creado un entorno verdaderamente transformador en el que se invita a los huéspedes a conectarse de manera significativa con la naturaleza, entre ellos y con ellos mismos mientras descubren los elementos que hacen que Ibiza sea diferente a cualquier otro lugar del mundo”.

Integrado en los contornos del acantilado, el resort cuenta con 116 suites y cuevas frente al mar de diseño y acabados inmaculados, además de un conjunto de townhouses a pie de Mediterráneo de tres, cuatro y cinco habitaciones con piscina y terraza privadas ideales para grupos o largas estancias. La arquitectura utiliza materiales de origen local y maximiza el impacto de  la brisa y los aspectos naturales con un acabado natural y sofisticado. Los jardines del resort, construidos siguiendo el modelo de bancal ibicenco, albergan decenas de árboles  frutales y plantas que también abastecen a los restaurantes y bares del resort. Tecnológicamente, Six Senses Ibiza cuenta con sistemas de sonido McIntosh y Sonus Faber para una experiencia sonora de última generación.

Desde los tres restaurantes orgánicos, al Recording Studio y el sensacional Six Senses Spa Ibiza, una gran cantidad de servicios de hospitalidad, wellness, gastronomía, música, arte, moda sostenible y cultura satisfarán todos los caprichos.  Los huéspedes también disfrutan de un servicio personalizado a través de su propio Guest Experience Maker.

Bienestar pionero 

Desde tratamientos exclusivos inspirados localmente, hasta biohacking para optimizar los sistemas de recuperación natural del cuerpo, retiros, soluciones para el cuidado de la piel a medida y programas para mejorar el sueño o la inmunidad, las necesidades e intenciones individuales de los huéspedes estarán bien atendidas en Six Senses Spa Ibiza.

RoseBar ofrece un espacio único especializado en programas de longevidad que combinan diagnósticos con orientación nutricional y modernos métodos de curación para optimizar la salud y el rendimiento como el biohacking. El espacio de 1.200 metros cuadrados también alberga un área fitness con gimnasio 24/7, sala funcional (Black Room), una plataforma de yoga en la azotea con vistas panorámicas de la bahía, ring de boxeo al aire libre y zona húmeda con hammam, caldarium, sauna de infrarrojos, baño de vapor y área de relajación con sitar.

Para guiar a los huéspedes hacia una mayor conciencia y un nuevo sentido de sí mismos, Six Senses Ibiza ofrece dos veces al año un programa de retiros e inmersiones al más alto nivel -de tres, cinco o siete días- facilitados por Six Senses Friends, practicantes residentes e invitados.

Exploración culinaria 

Dirigido por el chef Eyal Shani, el destino gastronómico insignia del complejo, HaSalon Ibiza, y su oferta completa de bares y restaurantes, muestran los poderes de los ingredientes orgánicos, de temporada y de origen local, que se presentan en formas innovadoras. Shani tiene la intención de revitalizar la energía de Ibiza a través de cenas a base de plantas, aprovechando la abundancia natural de ingredientes de la isla. Desde coliflor asada, entrecot de tomate y nubes de ricotta hasta focaccia caliente gigante. El objetivo es que la comida sea la que hable, aderezada con un generoso suministro de aceite de oliva, un esencial absoluto para Shani. La cocina abierta permite a los invitados formar parte del proceso creativo mientras se reúnen en la ‘Mesa del Chef’, de 50 asientos, a la sombra de olivos centenarios y con el mar de fondo.

The Farmers’ Market ofrece una auténtica selección de especialidades vegetales y sostenibles, además de puestos  a modo de mercado con pizzas al horno de leña, charcutería y encurtidos, zumos naturales, café y pastelería, entre otras delicias. The Orchard es el restaurante más íntimo del resort, con una selección de platos realizados con ingredientes de la tierra y el mar producidos responsablemente y preparados al grill y cócteles mexicano-peruanos. Live Cave y Twin Bar son los destinos gastronómicos de Beach Caves, el espectacular edificio situado en el frontal marítimo, especializado en cocina española y mediterránea. A cargo del chef Mark Spitzer del célebre restaurante neoyorquino BONDST, los huéspedes también pueden disfrutar de un menú ecléctico de cocina japonesa especialmente diseñado para esta exclusiva residencia en Six Senses Ibiza.

Con una original selección de elixires botánicos, Pharmacy Bar ofrece experiencias nutritivas de mixología mientras que Secret Bar invita a prolongar la velada hasta la madrugada con una selección de cognacs, whiskies y puros cubanos. The Farm, la granja del resort, abastece de productos frescos orgánicos a diario para disfrutar de experiencias culinarias de la granja a la mesa.

Donde florece la creatividad 

Con una programación dirigida por el compositor, productor y recording artist Tomer Biran, y con el apoyo del ejecutivo de la industria musical Shivas Howard-Brown, Beach Caves es el corazón del resort, agregando un nuevo y atractivo espectro a la escena musical de Ibiza. Beach Cave canaliza el paisaje de Ibiza y los ritmos naturales hipnóticos, utilizando la tecnología McIntosh y Sonus Faber para crear una experiencia sensorial inmersiva a través de eventos musicales en vivo y actuaciones que representan culturas del mundo. Incluso dispone de una exclusiva suite, Cave Royale, con una puerta secreta que conduce al Recording Studio para cuando la creatividad llega en medio de la noche.

Las artes visuales están representadas en las galerías de los pasillos y en los espacios públicos a través de una colección única de 400 imágenes que han sido seleccionadas especialmente por Magnum Photo para Six Senses Ibiza curada por Elaine Groenestein para reflejar los valores fundamentales de Ibiza e inspirar conciencia a través de una narración visual auténtica guiada por 18 conceptos distintos. Imágenes de Robert Capa, Martin Parr o Cristina García Rodero forman parte de la colección, también disponibles para coleccionistas privados.

En el apartado moda, Six Senses Ibiza presenta Agora, un concepto de moda sostenible que busca unir las ideas de lujo y sostenibilidad. Comisariada por las editoras de moda Daniela Agnelli y Tiffanie Darke, la idea detrás de Agora es redefinir el lujo actual. “Creemos que el verdadero significado moderno del lujo es moverse por el mundo de la manera más fluida posible”, dicen. La historia de Agora se desarrolla en cuatro capítulos: ‘Reducir’, ‘Reciclar’, ‘Restaurar’ y ‘Alquilar’.

Experiencias

Los huéspedes pueden obtener su adrenalina saltando desde acantilados o relajarse con una selección de actividades acuáticas de cortesía que incluyen snorkel, kayak, paddle surf o meditación guiada bajo el agua. Aquellos que quieran descubrir la magia de los alrededores pueden hacer una excursión a remo a las cabañas de pescadores de Cala Xuclar, comprar en el mercado de artesanía local los domingos en el bohemio pueblo de Sant Joan o hacer un viaje en barco a la mística isla de Es Vedrà. En el Alchemy Bar se practica el cultivo de la abundancia de la tierra de Ibiza, invitando a los huéspedes a preparar sus propios ungüentos naturales que podrán usar en el spa mientras que en Six Senses Earth Lab los huéspedes pueden familiarizarse con prácticas sostenibles desde una edad temprana descubriendo los poderes de las plantas locales.

PIKES IBIZA: EL EPICENTRO DE LA FELICIDAD  

PIKES IBIZA: EL EPICENTRO DE LA FELICIDAD  

MÚSICA Y GASTRONOMÍA CON UN TOQUE DE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, EL REFUGIO DE FREDDIE MERCURY EN IBIZA ES EL LUGAR DEL QUE NUNCA QUERRÁS SALIR

El legendario patio de recreo de la elite de la música y el cine presenta el perfecto brunch de verano para disfrutar de gloriosos días al sol al más puro estilo Balearic en su célebre piscina con música ‘all day long’.

www.laskimal.com

Ibiza, 9 junio 2021- Hedonista, musical, magnético y especial. Pikes Ibiza es uno de esos lugares privilegiados donde se respira el auténtico espíritu de Ibiza. Patio de recreo de la elite artística y musical aficionada a la isla, en esta finca rústica situada sobre las hermosas colinas de San Antonio la magia de Ibiza se celebra cada día. Dormir en la habitación favorita de Grace Jones, broncearse junto a la piscina donde se rodó el vídeo ‘Club Tropicana’ de Wham!, conversar una noche cualquiera de verano con Irvine Welsh o desayunar, como solía hacer Freddie Mercury, con champagne. Pikes Ibiza es el lugar del que nunca querrás salir.

Abierto cada día desde las 11.00 de la mañana hasta la madrugada, ser genuino y feliz es la consigna de este refugio que Sunday Times Travel ha catalogado como uno de “100 mejores lugares del mundo”.

Ya se trate de una estancia en la mejor compañía en alguna de sus 25 habitaciones y suites, un brunch en la piscina regado con Absolut Elyx, una tarde de cocktails y bailes en el Club Tropicana Pool Bar, una sesión de electrónica al ritmo de la puesta de sol en el Sunset Terrace Bar o de una cena en Pamelas con música en vivo a cargo de la Pikes House Band: Pikes Ibiza es una institución ibicenca impregnada de la historia del rock ‘n’ roll y rebosante de personalidad.

Gastronomía: Con un toque de rock ‘n’ roll 

Alegre y radiante, el color rosa es el favorito de Pikes, un color que sabe a verano y define su personalidad. En el ambiente, la decoración y la comida, el rosa es también el color de Pamelas, el sofisticado restaurante de aires bohemios e inspiración 70’s dirigido por el chef galés Lee Milne. Los techos de sabina, las bolas de espejo, los mesas de cristal y un menú celestial: Pamelas es un lugar digno de Tanit, diosa ibicenca de la feminidad. En sus dos ambientes a dos alturas, combinado con una exuberante coctelería, las noches en Pikes Ibiza proporcionan el elixir de la felicidad.

Durante el día, Pikes Ibiza presenta este verano 2021 un nuevo concepto de brunch a cargo de la chef Tess Prince. Delicioso, nutritivo y definitivamente memorable, Love Food Ibiza at Pikes propone una apetecible selección de platos eclécticos contemporáneos con influencias ayurvédicas y macrobióticas basada en productos mediterráneos de temporada con toques del medio y lejano oriente y una dosis imprescindible de rock ‘n’ roll. El perfecto brunch de verano para disfrutar de gloriosos días de sol al más puro estilo Balearic con música all day long.

Espíritu balear: Musica ‘all day long’

Freddie Mercury era un asiduo de Pikes, donde solía alojarse en sus visitas a la isla. En Pikes celebró su épica fiesta de 41 cumpleaños; corrió el champagne y aquella noche aún se recuerda.

www.laskimal.com

La música siempre ha estado ligada a este lugar, favorito de artistas como The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim o DJ Harvey. Durante el verano de 2021, los huéspedes e invitados disfrutarán de un calendario semanal de eventos y de DJ-sessions desde las once de la mañana, comenzando el día junto a la piscina en el Club Tropicana, el corazón de Pikes. Por la noche la acción se traslada al renovado Sunset Terrace Bar, estrenando un mural del artista Blue Logan que cuenta la genial historia del hotel, desde su fundador, el legendario Tony Pike, a su nueva era bajo la dirección artística de Dawn Hindle, creadora de un universo fascinante.

Inconformistas, soñadores, melómanos, amantes del sol, party lovers e isleños con gusto por la frivolidad se reúnen en este lugar fantástico, bohemio, glamuroso y divertido por igual, donde los días soleados se convierten en mágicas noches mediterráneas para celebrar el verano cocktail en mano. Porque Pikes y cocktails son indisociables.

Un poco rústico, un poco rock ‘n’ roll, mucha diversión, buena comida, gente extravagante, música de la mañana a la noche y sol. Sí, ¡Pikes Ibiza es el epicentro de la felicidad!

Pikes Ibiza
Abierto hasta finales de octubre.

This project, which started working on it in March 2020 and lasted 6 months, adopts the motto of minimum energy loss and zero waste as a principle according to the design approach it has put forward. Due to its characteristic moving feature it generates electrical energy by rotating around its position according to the water Current and provides users with different perspective experiences. Created as a 5 – Star Hotel, The Eco-Floating Hotel has a construction area of 35000 m² and a total of 152 rooms.

The eco-floating hotel is inspired by the sea with which it is associated in the first degree in terms of form and design principle. At this point, it is worth mentioning that the project will work efficiently in areas where there is a continuous and certain Current. However, the sea which gives the structure physical and tangible power and receives the return it needs in a mutualistic form also directs the shape of the structure with the idea of the vortex. If it is accepted that the water formed and disappeared by itself forming a rotation around itself in a regular Current and the shape is considered to have risen with its borders and evolved into a platform, it will give a transparent mass silhouette. It was this image that fed and supported the project.

In a project aimed at maximum benefit to ecological balance, the element used in terms of green energy production is called vawtau (vertical axis wind turbine and umbrella) which works as a wind turbine on the vertical axis and it has a function as a sun umbrella on the coastal band. 25 kW of electrical energy can be obtained from each of the 55 vawtau modules. Vawtau uses wind Current caused by temperature difference in sea and land as its working principle.

Another point considered in terms of energy production is the effective use of green areas and rainwater. In this sense, it is aimed to work in a way that is appropriate to the design identity and effectively when processing the project landscape. The hotel’s top cover inspired by the vortex also performs the function of collecting rainwater in its form. The water that will be obtained from here can be used as gray water by treatment and its main purpose is to maintain the water balance of green areas.

The project which aims to minimize intervention in the ecological balance by determined means aims not to use fossil fuels at any stage by methods such as rainwater accumulation, vawtau modules, rotational movement it performs around itself.

Just as the water necessity required by the hotel can be met with gray water the water needed will be obtained by purification from the sea. It will also treat the waste water it will produce and thus will not harm the environment. In terms of other wastes occurring it is aimed to develop waste separation units in order to maintain efficiency and to use them as fertilizer in the landscape for the recycling of substances such as food waste.

Access to the floating hotel takes 3 different forms. The first of these access routes will be through a 140-degree floating pier, the other will be through boats that will provide access from the sea to the hotel, and finally by helicopter and drone to the helipad located on the floating pier using the airway.

Lujo modernista de mediados de siglo en este nuevo hotel de Ibiza

Lujo modernista de mediados de siglo en este nuevo hotel de Ibiza

Con su próxima apertura la temporada de verano 2021, el Hotel Riomar Ibiza, miembro del grupo Marriott dentro de su colección de hoteles independientes Tribute Portfolio, se ha transformado en un destino de lifestyle centrado en el equilibrio entre bienestar, turismo eco-friendly, gastronomía y el ya conocido estilo de vida isleño.

El hotel, que pasa de 2 a 4 estrellas superior, dispone de 116 habitaciones incluyendo 4 suites completamente renovadas y de estética minimalista y contemporánea. Un esquema mono-tono se intercala con acentos de rojos tierra quemada, inspirados en la tierra rica en hierro de la isla de Ibiza. La mitad de dichas habitaciones tienen vistas a la bahía de Santa Eulalia, con vistas despejadas al mar Mediterráneo, mientras que las otras habitaciones ofrecen vistas al patrimonio rural de Ibiza, incluido el histórico Puig de Missa, que data del siglo XVI. En la zona de entrada, los huéspedes son recibidos en el Ocean Brasserie & Bar, que ocupa el salón principal del lobby.

Aquí, todo un ventanal de cristal se abre a una terraza cubierta para una cena informal con vistas a la playa. La terraza de la piscina cuenta con tumbonas y “cabañas” de diseño personalizado mirando a nuestro “Secret Garden”. Un refugio verde para siestas aisladas con un escenario central preparado para noches de música en acústico, nuestras “Sunset Sessions”. Tanto el jardín secreto como el restaurante contarán con grandes marcas tanto en su gestión como en su ejecución para ofrecer así tanto a huéspedes como a locales, el mejor equilibrio entre tradición gastronómica y vanguardia culinaria.

Con los orígenes del hotel en mente como uno de los primeros hoteles en Santa Eulalia, originalmente inaugurado en 1968 y sentando un precedente para el boom turístico de Ibiza, el nuevo diseño adopta las características inherentes del Modernismo de mediados del siglo XX. Líneas sencillas, balcones empotrados e interiores en capas.

El gusto por la nostalgia y las cualidades de la atemporalidad fueron los principios fundamentales del equipo de diseño. Los colgantes Louis Poulsen PH5 cuelgan sobre las cabinas de recepción de diseño personalizado, el Togo de Michel Ducaroy para Ligne Roset se ubica junto a asientos de diseño personalizado acompañados de mesas auxiliares Woud, alfombras de yute a medida de Naturtex, trabajos de arcilla hechos a mano por Atelier Vierkant y un mural de azulejo pintado a mano de 6 metros de ancho corona la pared del lobby

“La importancia del Hotel Riomar es que es anterior a la mayor parte de la ciudad que lo rodea. Santa Eulalia es muy consciente del desarrollo, por lo que a la hora de comenzar el proyecto había que tener en cuenta lo que teníamos y lo que podíamos hacer con la propiedad. Nuestra ambición es fasear el proyecto durante varias temporadas, revelando lentamente nuestra visión general de la experiencia que el hotel debe ofrecer”. – Sichi Bon, director creativo del proyecto.

El rebranding del hotel evoca también su pasado cercano al minimalismo. El hotel pondrá en marcha un canal de comunicación, titulado The Modernist, una guía de la isla con una perspectiva global, donde trataremos de compartir y esporar todo el contenido de lo que pase en el hotel y sus alrededores.

“Queremos crear un espacio con espíritu y de conexión con la gente, el Hotel Riomar Ibiza está pensado para compartir, disfrutar y conectar a los clientes con la comunidad de la isla” – Alejandro Cainzos, director de Marketing.

“El hotel será un espacio para socilizar, conocerse y disfrutar. Es un hotel que tiene como referente la naturalidad y elegancia de los veranos en las costas mediterráneas de los 50 y 60’s. – Marco Schiralli, director del Hotel Riomar Ibiza.

Los detalles son clave en la marca, Tribute Portfolio. Cada punto de contacto con el hotel se ha tenido en cuenta, desde los amenities personalizados a los materiales corporativos. Esta búsqueda de la calidad también es evidente gracias a un servicio honesto y sincero y detalles que incluyen una cuidada selección de lecturas, una biblioteca de vinilos. Incluso la posibilidad de reservar un tocadiscos portátil para que los huéspedes disfruten de la música en sus habitaciones.

El Hotel Riomar Ibiza abre sus puertas a partir del verano de 2021 como miembro del grupo Marriott dentro de su colección de Tribute Portfolio Hotels. Los beneficios para miembros de Marriott Bonvoy incluyen contactless check-in, mobile key y puntos de fidelización en F&B.

El hotel forma parte del desarrollo de la bahía de Santa Eulalia, que incluye W Ibiza y su Chiringuito Blue, la cocina sana del Ve Café y el elegante restaurante La Llama. Dentro de este desarrollo en la bahía incluyen Apartamentos Marsol con 16 apartamentos de lujo relajado y el restaurante Pecador del chef catalán Nandu Jubany, galardonado con una estrella Michelin.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.

NOW OPEN: FOUR SEASONS HOTEL BANGKOK AT CHAO PHRAYA RIVER WELCOMES GUESTS TO AN URBAN OASIS IN THE HEART OF THE CITY

Four Seasons returns to Thailand’s capital with an all-new riverside sanctuary designed by Jean-Michel Gathy, featuring a collection of signature dining and bar experiences, an urban wellness centre, light-filled event spaces and expansive outdoor courtyards and terraces

Rising above the majestic Chao Phraya River in the heart of Bangkok’s Creative District is an enclave of tiered buildings, connected at ground level by a series of indoor and outdoor spaces, quiet courtyards and lively restaurants. Art-filled spaces, sophisticated lounges and lush tropical greenery are surrounded by the gentle sounds of water features and inviting open-air terraces.  Welcome to the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.

“The much-anticipated return of Four Seasons to Thailand’s capital is nothing short of spectacular,” says Christian Clerc, Four Seasons President, Global Operations. “Guests will be in awe of the exquisite design, the world-class restaurant and bar options, and a state-of-the-art wellness centre. As always, the unparalleled, intuitive service from Four Seasons people will be at the centre of it all. Thanks to our visionary owner-partners at Country Holdings Group Public Company Limited, this magnificent Hotel combines everything that one has come to expect of Four Seasons in Thailand and around the world.”

Located along 200 metres (650 feet) of open riverfront just 40 minutes from Suvarnabhumi International Airport along the famed Charoenkrung Road, the fourth location in the Four Seasons Thailand Collection offers myriad opportunities for locals and international travellers to make connections with each other and the exciting city that surrounds it.  Features include a 299-room hotel, destination restaurants and lounges, stunning event spaces, and an urban wellness centre like no other.  The complex also includes 366 Four Seasons Private Residences, opening in 2021.

Bangkok’s Creative District

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is in the heart of the city’s most remarkable community.  Along the historic Charoenkrung Road and in myriad small streets and alleyways, the area is undergoing a renaissance as street food vendors are joined by food-forward restaurants, traditional crafts are side by side with bold contemporary art, and tiny stalls selling handcrafted wares sit next to eclectic shops filled with designer goods.

Along Chao Phraya River, Four Seasons guests can head to ICONSIAM, the city’s newest premium shopping mall, with direct access from the Hotel’s river dock.  Or, take a water taxi to wander the river’s canals, floating kitchens, ancient temples and charming fishing piers.
