Six Senses Ibiza is the perfect alternative retreat for holidaymakers this winter
Ibiza is mostly considered a summer destination but you might be surprised to learn that winter months can be a fabulous time to visit the island. Winter sun can be a refreshing change from the summer heat in Ibiza, with temperatures averaging between 15°C and up to 25°C.
Located on the northern tip of Ibiza, escape to a crystalline Cala Xarraca this winter season with Six Senses Ibiza which is set to remain open till early January. Experience everything the magical the island has to offer, minus the flocks of summer tourists. Opened in July 2021, Six Senses Ibiza is one of the world’s most discerning destinations for today’s generation of creatives and culture seekers.
Conceived by architect and developer Jonathan Leitersdorf, the year-round destination set in secluded Xarraca bay offers a comprehensive range of amenities and programming, farm-to-table dining, music, art, sustainable fashion, culture, longevity and wellness. Each experience is inspired by the traditions and values of the island’s north to deliver an intentional destination that provokes meaningful moments of community, spirituality and celebration.
Xarraca Bay is a long-hidden secret on Ibiza’s northern tip. Integrated into its contours to enjoy unobstructed sunsets, the property features 116 guest rooms and suites, including one-of-a-kind cave suites built into the cliffs. There are also a handful of Village Residences ideal for large groups or longer-term stays.
Powered by its own renewable energy source – up to 51 percent at any given moment – and with punchy zero waste and zero single-use plastic targets, the resort has sustainability at its core. The result is the Balearic Islands’ first resort and residential community to achieve certification by BREEAM, the world’s original and leading assessment of sustainability within the built environment, and a new benchmark for sustainable real estate worldwide.
Led by Master Chef Eyal Shani the Six Senses Ibiza’s flagship dining destination – HaSalon showcases the powers of organic, seasonal, and locally sourced ingredients in new and innovative ways. Shani intends to revitalize Ibiza’s energy for plant-based dining, harnessing the island’s natural abundance of ingredients — from avocados to watermelons, oranges, lemons and Ibiza rock salt. Here, the food does the talking. There is also a rich supply of olive oil, an absolute essential for Shani. The open kitchen allows you to become part of Shani’s creative process as they gather at the 50-seat chef’s table in the shade of 100-year-old olive trees.
