Checking In: Amàre Beach Hotel Ibiza

Penny McCormick checks out the Amàre Beach Hotel in Ibiza…

VIBE: Adults-only, cosmopolitan, fun-loving four-star resort.

LOCATION: Sant Josep de sa Talaia, on the beachfront of Bou Cove.

DECOR: White, bright and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows; spaces punctuated by colourful pop art.

FACILITIES: Sophisticated, with three pools, an outdoor jacuzzi, lots of sunbeds; a gym offering yoga and personal training, and a bijou spa with Germaine de Capuccini treatments and products. Try the Aromas d’Ibiza massage, €95, which leaves skin smooth and smelling of lavender and citrus fruits.

ROOMS: 366, in eight categories. My all-white “Keep the Secret” room (from €205 on a bed and breakfast basis) came with all amenities plus a balcony and a retro 1970s-style love seat, a design feature of the hotel. The shower, with glass panels, spares few blushes; amenities are by Molton Brown. Oh Là Là The One rooms provide access to The One private lounge and terrace which serves complimentary drinks and snacks throughout the day, from €280 per room plus breakfast.

RESTAURANTS: Four in total. The breakfast buffet is a highlight served in Mare Nostrum restaurant (until a leisurely 11am) which has a large wraparound terrace. It also offers lunch – delicious salads, sushi and poke bowls – and an optional à la carte dinner menu of Spanish and international dishes. A discreet buzzer allows you to order from Amàre Lounge to your sun lounger. A roster of DJs and musicians keep the Balearic beats going during the day. The Belvue Rooftop bar is a must for sundowners with cocktails created by mixologist Diego Cabrera (try the Xo-Xo Amàre, a gin-based tipple with elderflower liqueur, grapefruit juice and honey). Latin American flavours are part of Michelin-starred chef Mauricio Giovanni’s indulgent menu at Hayaca.

DON’T: Be surprised if you want to rebook right away, or visit its sister hotel Amàre Marbella.

DO: Rent a car if you intend to visit other areas, taxis are expensive.

VERDICT: This Balearic bolthole places an emphasis on pampering the senses and encourages guests to make the most of their stay whether that’s poolside lazing or rooftop partying. It’s supremely relaxing.
