Ibiza is in the centre of sunny Europe, a quick flight away from all European cities. You can go there to party, to relax, to exercise, to become a yogini, and, as happened with a few of my friends, to reside. People move their not just to escape the hustle and bustle of cosmopolitan cities but to raise their children in a beautiful environment where music and exploration is encouraged and nurtured in a tropical environment close to the beach.

The music scene is heavy as the Balearic Islands are where top house music DJ’s are discovered and praised. The DJ talent attracts everyone from local inhabitants, foreign travellers (mostly English, Italian, German, and Dutch), producers, bankers, entrepreneurs, and celebrities.

There is so much to do and every time the experience is different! From visiting all the clubs and bars from Le Kave, Ushuaia, Amnesia, Beach House, Blue Marlin, to trying the chilled side walking through San Josef hills, swimming in a private cove, practicing yoga, getting massages and taking a boat to Formentera, to working and watching client STK Ibiza launch with the Global Gift Gala hosted by Eva Longoria.

Here are the Top Five Hotels in Ibiza that offer different styled rooms, environments and amenities to suit your Ibiza holiday dependent on your individual requirements.

This combines live music, art and food. Gran Hotel is located close to the beach and the port so that you have access to clubs whilst remaining tucked away in a discreet luxurious hideaway.

OD Talamanca, Elvissa. OD Talamanca has just been launched as a retro-glamour 5 star hotel with 117 rooms and suites (all with sea view) a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the nightlife scene. OD

With deluxe suites and a more desert-like ambience with earthy colour tones and brilliant service, this hotel is expecting renovation on its pool and an inclusion of a spa soon which will make it one of the best hotels on the island with views of both Talamanca bay and Ibiza’s old town. The restaurant offers healthy Asian/European fusion cuisine to guests.
