If “Nobu” makes you think dark interiors and minimalist décor, think again—this hotel embraces the Mediterranean aesthetic with vigor, bringing sunshine in through the entry atrium and using natural materials in light colors to make it very clear that you’re on vacation. Overlooking the Med and with beach access, this gleaming hotel manages to offer all the amenities of a resort: several restaurants, a spa, salon, gym, attentive service—all within easy reach of Ibiza’s nightclubs and shopping. Rooms have plenty of amenities (Nespresso machines, rainfall showers, terraces, even cocktail cabinets) and most have sea views. The service is hyper-attentive, and the smiling staff will do everything from come to your room to mix you a gin and tonic to snagging you tickets to the hottest clubs in town.
In the Area
Nobu’s smart spot on Talamanca Beach, while not the nicest beach in Ibiza, means that going for a swim doesn’t require getting into a car or bus. It’s also a short drive or 40-minute walk to the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage site that deserves at least an afternoon. Enter through the Portal de ses Taules and stroll the steep narrow streets of the historic district, stopping for the occasional ice cream or cold beer before heading back to the hotel to get ready for the night’s party. A trip to Ibiza isn’t complete without a night at Pácha, the OG Ibiza club, which is just close enough to the hotel (about a mile) that you can make it home on foot. The upscale Marina Botafoch, with its slew of high-end restaurants and boutiques, makes a good spot for dinner on the water and a little pre-gaming.
How to Get There
Loved every segment of the architecture. Room service was impeccable. Dining at the restaurant was divine as we had the best paella of our life! The swimming pool was also AMAZING, in the evenings there were a special dj music and the whole setting was lite in a stunning way, we decided few times not even to to to the old town. During our stay, there was a really aggressive guest yelling and complaining for no reason and we thought that some rude people (or addicted to something) should not be allowed in places like this!
We were amazed by how the management handled this aggressive behaviour in very appropriate manners. Congratulations and we hope to be back again next year for another romantic summer getaway.
Our stay here was pure luxury. May was a great month to visit as it’s not too busy. Nobu food on the Friday night was exceptional and we had amazing waiter service all weekend by the pool. Will return next May.
