We have been talking to you before about top holidays for girls and now we want to have a closer look at Ibiza. This place may be the quintessential party isle, but away from the nightclubs this Balearic Island offers a more refined appeal — perfect for a luxury holiday.
Why you should visit Ibiza
Ibiza Hotels & Villas
To some, a luxury holiday to Ibiza will mean All Inclusive hotels, with swim-up bars, infinity pools and private beaches. To others, it will be the understated luxury of a private villa in a secluded location.
The All Inclusive Sensatori Resort Ibiza is in Cala Tarida, and makes the most of its views with a rooftop bar. It’s popular with families too with its Play House kids’ club and location overlooking a sandy beach.
Puerto de San Miguel boasts some of the best restaurants on the island, such as Chiringuito Pascual in San Miguel. Popular with the bohemian set, looking to escape the crowds.
And you’re never far Ibiza Town, with its UNESCO World Heritage-listed old quarter and Medieval stone walls, or the high-end boutiques of the new end of town.
Things to do on your Luxury Ibiza Holidays
Explore Ibiza Town
A trip to Ibiza Town is a must. The modern part of town is filled with chic boutiques, restaurants and pavement cafes, while in the old town, you’ll find a maze of lanes lined with whitewashed houses and bougainvillea-draped balconies.
The lanes lead up a hill – at the top there’s a cathedral and a fort with views across the Med.
Watch the sunset
Ibiza is famous for its sunsets, and rightly so. If you’re staying on the east side of the island, the best way to see them is on a sunset cruise – plenty of boats push off each evening from the harbours in Santa Eulalia and Ibiza Town.
Take the ferry to Formentera
The laid-back island of Formentera makes a great day trip – the white sandy beaches and clear waters look like they’ve been shipped in from the Caribbean.
Hire a bike and spend the afternoon beach-hopping – Playa Illetes, Playa Migjorn and Playa la Savina are three of the best.
Our top tip is that you really need your own transport to reach the best spots although there’s a good bus service around the island and local boats serve various destinations along the coast.
Unforgettable Maldives honeymoon or holiday
The other beautiful place for luxury holidays is Maldives – the ultimate paradise of the world. The small islands of the Maldives archipelago are among the most beautiful on Earth.
With two superlative Four Seasons luxury Maldives resorts, plus private Four Seasons cruises and an exclusive private island, you have the option of creating your own one-of-a-kind adventures – whether an unforgettable honeymoon or holiday – experiencing four possibilities.
