This September a stunning new hotel concept will hit the Balearic Islands: the Aguas de Ibiza Spa & Resort. The waterside hotel is proudly “anchored” in Ibiza’s Santa Eulalia Bay marina. Built by local architect Juan de los Ríos, designed by Barcelona-based Triade Studio and run by the Torres family, the Aguas de Ibiza boasts an elegant and modern ambience. It is warmed by a philosophy of friendly and personalised service that enables guests to delve into the essence of Ibiza.

In all, Aguas de Ibiza offers 112 individually styled rooms and suites. The deluxe rooms and suites distributed across the first three floors all come with private terraces and large glass windows. But the utmost in luxury is reserved for the exclusive Cloud 9 club on the fourth floor – essentially, a hotel within the hotel, complete with its own check-in desk, design scheme, services and amenities. Cloud 9’s luxurious lofts, and the one and only Presidential Ibiza Loft feature hardwood parquet floors, private terraces partially with oversized bathtubs and spectacular harbour views. Special amenities, such as a pillow menu and welcome packs, guarantee a more than relaxing stay. Like all rooms in the Aguas, the Cloud 9 lofts also come equipped the latest technologies – including digital cable TV shown on chic Bang & Olufsen monitors and state-of-the-art, energy-saving domotics for personalized lighting and curtain control.

The interior design by Kim Castells and Jordi Cuenca of Triade Studio is strongly influenced by the Mediterranean. Dominating colours on the first three floors are blue and white for a crisp and fresh impression whereas in Cloud 9 warm tones like beige and brown are used to create an intimate atmosphere. The Torres family describes the style of the hotel as “eco-luxurious” combining eco-friendly materials and technology as well as Feng Shui interior design with an indulging touch. As one of the first hotels worldwide Aguas de Ibiza reduces energy usage by more than 35 percent in comparison to other properties in the luxury segment.

Alberto Torres, seasoned hotelier and owner of the new resort: “Aguas de Ibiza will be the most luxurious hotel on the island. We are blending the charming character of a rural finca with all the services and the style of a contemporary hotel like you would find in New York. This mixture creates an extraordinary new type of guest-experience. To top this off, we are adding a very personal touch to the whole concept because the hotel is family run. My children and I were born in Ibiza. The island has given so much to us and now we felt it was time to give something back.”

The Aguas offers a gym, climatized pools with mineral salts, three outdoor pools - including one on the rooftop with impeccable views over the marina - a beauty salon and a boutique, with wireless Internet available throughout the hotel. The on-site Business Centre spans 4,300 square feet and consists of a private garden as well as a multi-use hall that can host up to 300 people. It can also be divided into three independent function rooms.For top management, the Aguas offers the innovative High Performance Executive Centre.

Aguas de Ibiza has plenty to offer those guests searching for relaxation, rejuvenation or some good ole’ fun. Its sumptuous Revival Wellness Club, conceived by wellness expert Félix Prado, was inspired by the Mediterranean waters for which the Aguas is named and is accordingly devoted to the therapeutic properties of H2O. The quiet oasis offers everything from treatments with Ibiza salts to aromatherapy with seagrass and almonds. For a more social experience, guests can have a drink at the lively Scuba cocktail bar or kick back at the trendy Air Ibiza. With this rooftop bar the Torres family is creating a unique spot on the island. It will be the first rooftop chill-out bar in Ibiza with an exotic red-tiled pool inviting its guests to dip in and indulge. Resident DJs will create the right soundtrack for a good night out in Ibiza´s hottest location with sweeping views of the island of Formentera and the Marina of Santa Eulalia. The Aguas also offers numerous dining options, ranging from sophisticated tapas at the cheerful Alabastro Lounge, stylish Mediterranean specialities at the Oligo: Madeinterranean, to modern interpretations of traditional Ibizan dishes at the gourmet restaurant La Sal.

Nicolás González Mira, Director of the Aguas de Ibiza: “With the Aguas de Ibiza we want to create an authentic Ibicencan experience for our guests. We consider ourselves as hosts welcoming friends and guests to our beautiful island.”
