Hotel Review: Aguas de Ibiza, Ibiza

In Ibiza, Good Things editor Zoe Perrett discovers eco-luxury during a five-star Aguas de Ibiza resort

Contemplating life from underneath a towering of froth in a patio bathtub as we sip a potion of cold Cava, we consternation what I’d need to do in sequence to take adult permanent chateau in Aguas de Ibiza.

We’re positively staying in good association – a subsequent day, we mark one of those baths on Professor Green’s Instagram feed. I’m certain he’s carrying a poetic time, though I’m not certain he’s carrying utterly as poetic a time as us.

Because we’re really, unequivocally amatory life during Aguas de Ibiza, where staff pad around in lax white outfits as if they’re about to discharge oppulance massages rather than ride container to bedrooms, where eco-credentials are key, and where no uncanny direct we could emanate would be too many trouble.

In a swim

Aguas de Ibiza Rooftop Pool

Located in Santa Eulalia brook on Ibiza’s easterly coast, a five-star review eschews a island’s scandalous celebration lifestyle in foster of decrease and revitalisation – and child does it deliver. Mere moments after arrival, we’re poolside: prosaic on a backs on an upholstered double object lounger; one staff member manufacture a object powerful while another brings us a integrate of spanking-fresh juices.

And there we remain, blissfully chilled, flopping in and out of a stimulating H2O and convincing ourselves that supping a martini while perched on a chair that runs a length of a pool is doing a bodies each bit as many good as a set of fast-paced lengths.

The initial prickles of craving strike, and a bar sandwiches we can see associate sun-worshippers munching demeanour strong fine. But a cooking reservation during a hotel’s rooftop grill is calling, so we retire to a room to cold down and glam up.

That room is an comprehensive beaut. The immeasurable bed would browbeat many spaces, though this mood-lit apartment is so enormous it’s roughly dwarfed. A lounge and list arrangement and silent, fabulously icy aircon renders out-of-hours laptop work roughly a pleasure, while on a generously-proportioned balcony, a gossamer screen offers shade (and remoteness if you’re luxuriating in a aforementioned bathtub).

The resort’s mod cons, comforts and altogether sharp operation are all a some-more considerable deliberation Aguas de Ibiza uses 35% reduction appetite than identical properties. One suspects that a necessity might good be done adult for by staff endeavour, since each singular one of a many employees we accommodate is so on a ball.

As eve falls, we zip adult to a hotel’s roof, supping a discerning cocktail beside a adults-only pool before strolling a few feet into Vi Cool to representation celeb cook Sergi Arola’s complicated tapas.

Incredible edibles
The menu lives adult to a venue’s name – styled like a comic book spread, it’s one of a coolest I’ve encountered to date. Of a multi-dish meal, a prominence is Iberico ham lonesome in a fur of frail straw potatoes, surfaced with soft-cooked eggs (Spain’s answer to a dear Brit ham, egg and chips). Most surprising? It has to be my chocolate dessert, proudly served in a flowerpot surfaced with cookie ‘soil’.

Front-loaded by repeat visits to a best smorgasboard breakfast possibly of us have had a pleasure of descending upon, a subsequent day brings some-more of a same. And when ‘the same’ means ‘utter bliss’, because quibble? The usually thing we caring to switch adult is cooking which, tonight, we take during Alabastro Lounge, Aguas de Ibiza’s spontaneous complicated Med brasserie.

We sup from land and sea – initial on crisp, lemon-scented squid and handcrafted jamon and salt cod croquettas; afterwards on a glorious special of boiled gnocchi with sharp Ibicencan sobrassada sausage and a lacquered veal sirloin that it’s unequivocally too prohibited to sequence though that we can’t resist. Puddings are memorable, though a small too many booze renders those memories hazy.

They contend violation adult is tough to do, though checking out of Aguas de Ibiza aint easy either. Once you’ve had a ambience of this kind of high life, that back-to-earth strike is guaranteed to hurt.
