After opening its doors almost a year ago in one of the most sought-after address in the Balearic Islands, Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay is said to have become the island’s new 5-star premier hotel…
Following the launch of Nobu Marbella last week, Nobu Hospitality’s co-founders – Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper – have officially cut the ribbon to Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, which opened its doors last summer.
The faces of the brand along with owners Ian and Richard Livingstone, Daniel Shamoon and Jennica Arazi, hosted the official launch of the hotel with a traditional Sake Ceremony.
Located on the shores of Talamanca Bay, Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay shelters 152 designer rooms and is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. With a flair for drawing on all the island has to offer, the hotel provides guests with an authentic island escape, with carefully curated Ibizan-style rooms and suites, two private seafront pools, four restaurants designed by STUDIO PCH and a spa by Six Senses.
A creative collaboration between the owners with the Madrid-based Procurement Company Professional; every detail at Ibiza Bay has been designed with the guests’ comfort in mind.
Seamlessly blending the outdoors in to capture the authentic island’s elements, the rooms and suites, two private seafront pools, restaurants and spa have been inspired by the white island, (La isla blanca), turquoise of the Balearic sea and gold from the Mediterranean sunshine.
A crisp palette has been achieved with the combination of limestone floors and whitewashed walls. The character of Ibiza Bay is drawn out by bespoke furniture made by local Spanish artisans. These pieces blend into the indigenous natural Ibizan materials such as light-coloured wood beams, “piedra laja” stone cut walls and typical white washed “biriba”, cane ceilings. Creating a luxe, chilled, lounging vibe in the lobby area are raffia lamps, a macrame hanging chair and comfortable rattan sofas are intuitively peppered with striking international design pieces.
In the guestrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and open terraces accentuate the striking sea-views, which can been seen from 80 per cent of the 152 Ibizan style rooms and suites. Tasteful details throughout include mother-of-pearl inlay and hand-blown pendant lights with hand painted headboards that are framed in bronze and complement the woven rope over-sized armchairs. Taking inspiration from the ever-changing colours of the waters surrounding Ibiza and Talamanca Bay; flashes of celadon, turquoise, lapis and indigo can be found within the rugs, fabrics and handmade ceramics with gold present in brass details which reflect the sun. Accessed through a sleek, sliding mirrored door glamorous white marbled bathrooms are completed with Dornbracht fittings and Hollywood style brass bulb lights to the mirror for added glamour. Whilst within the main room, a cool, relaxed and comfortable vibe is achieved with organic bed linens, a ‘grown-up’ in house bar and dressing area.
