Ocean Drive Ibiza, the island’s original boutique hotel, is celebrating 25 years with a brand-new look that captures its renowned Art Deco style and glamourous spirit…
Located on the front line of Marina Botafoch overlooking Ibiza’s old town, Ocean Drive Ibiza has long been a favourite of DJs visiting the island because of its proximity to the best restaurants, clubs, and experiences that Ibiza has to offer. The property was the first hotel opened by OD Hotels founder, Marc Rahola and is now part of the OD portfolio that comprises of five boutique, design-led hotels in Ibiza, Madrid and Barcelona.
Taking on the reimagining of this 40-key hotel, the in-house interior design team has drawn inspiration from the building’s Art Deco aesthetic and the hotel’s love of music, art, and hedonism. These elements are combined with flexible spaces that transform from bright and welcoming during the day, to warm and intimate at night. The Sky Bar, with its unique Old Town and sunset views, now has retractable roof panels and doors to create indoor and outdoor areas that can be enjoyed year-round. The palette combines monochrome tones with rich, deep blue and gold touches and the Art Deco influence is seen in the space’s lines, furniture and lighting.
Guests are welcomed into a light, airy lobby with elegant marble and that Art Deco inspiration again running throughout. Making life easy after a less than 15-minute journey from the airport or just steps from the port, the knowledgeable team is on hand to ensure a memorable stay for guests with their insider access to the best that Ibiza has to offer. There’s a lounge, bar and restaurant that flow into each other and can be used at all times of day, from breakfast through to a nightcap after a full Ibiza day.
The guestrooms and suites have also had a refresh with new soft furnishings, decorative objects such as design-led lamps, bathrooms updates and new artworks by Stella Rahola. Rooms are well-equipped offering the best in comfort and style, with Mediterranean influences to give a sense of place. Many share the same marina and old town views, with the four suites occupying the two upper floors of the hotel for unmatched views.
Hotel guests, locals and visitors can meet for relaxed food and drinks, or one of the OD Sky Bar’s many specially curated events, which include a weekly showcasing of different flavourful cuisines with drinks to match, as well as music-focused events from media and music collectives. The events programme will continue downstairs, where the ground floor has been completely opened up to create a more sociable space. OD Live On Tour is a monthly live music event and for analogue music lovers, there will be a monthly event, which will see live music from a vinyl music collection. This space will also host monthly art exhibitions from artists including those who are part of the IbizArt Guide, an annual guide that brings together the best national and international artists who live in Ibiza or who have a direct relationship with the island.
