The latest outpost of Six Senses Hotel Resorts, and its first outpost in Spain, has opened in northern Ibiza along a secluded stretch of Xarraca Bay. The eco-friendly resort was conceived by architect and developer Jonathan Leitersdorf and opens as a testament to the island’s traditions and values of community, spirituality and celebration.
The 20-acre resort is entirely powered by its own renewable energy source as part of its commitment to sustainable practices. In operating with zero waste and single-use plastic targets, the resort has also become the first resort and residential community within the Balearic Islands to achieve BREEAM certification.
The flagship eatery, HaSalon Ibiza, further reflects the development’s sustainability goals, offering organic, local-sourced ingredients that rotate on seasonal availability and aim to revitalize plant-based dining. All-natural, sustainably produced cuisine will also be available at the Farmer’s Market. Meanwhile, the Orchard, an intimate cocktail concept, the Orchard, will reflect Mexican and Peruvian influences.
Keeping Guests, and the Landscape, Healthy
In addition, Six Senses Ibiza has pledged to continue working with local conservation and preservation efforts to help progress vital biodiversity and preservation projects on land and sea. These efforts continue alongside a constant push by Six Senses to refine and develop new initiatives and procedures that can continually reduce the impact of their resorts on the surrounding environment.
“Six Senses Ibiza is a reflection of the natural vibrations and vitality of the Balearics,” Leitersdorf says. “By channeling the destination’s unique sense of community and celebration, we have created a truly transformative environment wherein guests are invited to meaningfully connect with nature, each other, and themselves while discovering the elements that make Ibiza unlike anywhere else in the world.”
The resort’s 12,900-square-foot Six Senses Spa supports wellness with a fitness center, outdoor boxing ring, steam room, salon, hot bath, and rooftop yoga platform. Finally, the property’s 116 accommodations peak with innovative cave suites, which are built into the cliffside to maximize unparalleled natural views.
