Seduced by beautiful views on the tranquil side of Ibiza
The Spanish island of Ibiza may be known for superyachts and wild parties, but miles from Pacha and the other clubs on the island’s south side, tranquility reigns over the new
7 Pines Resort. Perched on a rocky cliff on the remote western coast, the resort and its Pure Seven Spa offer sweeping views the Balearic Sea and the mystical island of
Es Vedra, where legend has it the sirens attempted to lure Odysseus from his ship. The uninhabited limestone islet is visible from just about every part of the resort, from the glass-walled infinity pool to the View, the fine dining restaurant serving Korean-inflected Mediterranean fare.
Between the pool and the two main restaurants sits the 16,000-square-foot spa, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that put the sea and Es Vedra in focus. Thanks to the hippies that flocked to Ibiza during the Vietnam War, bringing their crystals and yoga with them, the island has long had a spiritual side, but the Pure Seven Spa brings a whole new level of wellness. Clean-lined, modern relaxation areas, a sauna and Jacuzzi are just the beginning. Guests can take classes (meditation, Pilates, and full moon yoga are just a few options) and indulge in massages, facials and other treatments using organic, local ingredients like Ibiza’s famous salts, herbs and citrus. 7pines.com
