Atzaro Hotel and Spa is one of the most prestigious hotels on Ibiza and one of Europe’s leading five-star Spa hotels. Situated in the heart of ten acres of fragrant orange groves and lush tropical gardens, the hotel was originally developed and opened in the 2004 as one of the first Agrotourismo hotels on the island. Built on the site of a generations-old ancient finca and working farm, once the family home of the owner and CEO Victor Guasch, the hotel launched thirteen years ago to rapturous acclaim. Since then, Atzaro has firmly established itself on the map as one of Ibiza’s best-loved hotels with a glittering Hollywood fanbase — international visitors over the years have included some of Hollywood’s most iconic names including Kate Hudson and Rihanna, amongst many others. This year the hotel has been redesigned and refurbishmed under the creative direction of Atzaro Design. The redesign has sensitively returned the hotel to its traditional, natural Ibicencan heritage, whilst retaining the luxurious feel that has made it Ibiza’s best Agrotourismo hotel.
The concept is ‘natural luxury’ and the look is chic, pared back, harmonious and calm, one of quality and comfort with a splash of pure Ibiza glamour and romance. Inspired by the family story, the new Atzaro interiors encapsulate the true essence of authentic Ibiza.
The redesign has been extensive and intricate, with attention to every last detail. Each of the hotel’s 24 bedrooms and suites have been decorated using thick soft white traditional plaster walls, which contrast beautifully with local Sabina wood beams, olive wood ceilings and the rustic dry stone exteriors. Mediterranean terracotta tiled floors and luxurious marble bathrooms are complimented with bespoke handmade furniture created by artisans. All rooms have emperor size teak four-poster beds, draped with cool white cotton linens. Commissioned paintings add a pop of colour, each telling a story of the farm and orange groves. Many of the rooms have their own private plunge pools, terraces, gardens with lily filled ponds and balconies with spectacular views, and are delicately scented with essence of orange blossom oil made from Atzaro’s own estate.
Atzaro’s stunning open-air Spa has also undergone an extensive redesign that reflects the authentic Ibizan style of the hotel. With sauna, hammam, gym, yoga pavilions, pool and beautiful gardens, the solid teak treatment cabins have views to the orange groves and provide a soothing environment. A unique wellness programme includes a raft of beauty and pampering treatments, yoga and pilates and there are Atzaro signature massages to enjoy. The spa also has its own bar where you can order refreshing juices and smoothies and healthy lunches.
There is a wonderful choice for gourmet dining at Atzaro. The spectacular ‘Orange Tree’ is a grand courtyard restaurant resplendent with palm trees, vines, orange blossom, rosemary, hibiscus and jasmine, held by a dramatic wood pergola, with glamorous gold lighting. You can also dine in the finca or on the grand terrace at ‘La Veranda’ restaurant, surrounded by beautiful, lush gardens. Winter and Spring you can enjoy cocktails by scented log fires, or moonlight strolls along the romantic terraces planted with olive trees. Mediterranean-fusion menus change according to season and the vast wine cellar includes an extensive choice of hand-picked bio-dynamic and organic wines from around the world.
The gardens, grounds and pools at Atzaro are sensational. From the world famous long fresh water pool surrounded by dramatic palms, to the sumptuous daybeds set amongst the orange groves, the experience is a visual feast. With a wealth of private relaxation spots and a second large swimming pool, they all provide a piece of Mediterranean heaven at the heart of the Ibiza countryside.
In addition to this, the many beautiful bars, social spaces and large pavilions create glamorous private events and weddings spaces.
Activities available as part of the Atzaro experience include horse riding, country walking, kayaking, scuba diving, climbing, organic gardening and boat trips to the neighbouring island of Formentera on Atzaro’s private motor launch. The Atzaro Group also own Atzaro Beach, a beautiful beach club at Cala Nova, Atzaro Chiringuito, a relaxed beach restaurant on the same beach and Aubergine, the ‘farm to table’ organic restaurant in the Ibiza countryside.
In the Spring, visits can be made to enjoy and learn about the wild flowers that start blooming and also to see the Almond trees blossom, a unique and special Ibiza experience.
