Serene, secluded suntrap

Setting

Southwest wilds

The arresting offshore outcrop of Es Vedrà fills the frame at Petunia Ibiza, a boutique resort that peacefully paces the ringing of cicadas above a sleepy bay, far from Ibiza’s thumping clubs. Bright bougainvilleas (and petunias, of course) pop vividly against whitewashed walls, and palm trees sway with ease in the breeze, as chefs harvest produce from the kitchen garden to whip into lazy-long lunches and luxuriant dinners. Saunter down a dusty track for a splash in the pebbled Cala Carbó, and hike through pine-covered hills as you uncover a ruggedly handsome, rural Ibiza.

Our favourite rooms

The Bougainvillea Suites have a private rooftop terrace.

Poolside

The saltwater pool is edged by terracotta tiles and flanked on all sides by parasol-shaded wooden sunloungers: poolside terrace service from the Los Olivos restaurant begins at noon. Should you prefer the beach, there is a free shuttle service (in classic Land Rover Defenders) to a choice of nearby coves. Cala Carbó and its aquamarine waters are usually quiet in summer, and the rocky cliffs sheltering Cala Vadella from wind and wave make it ideal for snorkelling.

Spa

Treatments are delivered in the on-site spa treatment room, and free weekly yoga, animal flow, and pilates classes are scheduled early in the morning or at sunset on a garden deck, overlooking Es Vedrà. There’s a Technogym-equipped indoor training room to raise your heart rate, and an outdoor gym, too.

Packing tips

Fill your cases with a curated range of artisan Balearic threads.

For ultimate exclusivity, the entire property can be booked out.

Children

There's no kids' club, but little Smiths are welcome to stay in the Family Deluxe, Hibiscus, Petunia and Two-Bedroom Family suites.

Sustainability efforts

Follow the signs in the garden pointing toward the huerto (vegetable patch) – the large kitchen garden supplies the three restaurants, and what can’t be grown on site is sourced locally. The hotel also collaborates with a non-profit organisation to preserve and care for the island's ecosystem

Hotel restaurant

There are three restaurants at Petunia Ibiza. All source their seasonal greens from the on-site gardens, with meat and fish arriving daily from local suppliers. Led by chef Baltasar Rigo, a Mallorquin rising star with experience running Michelin-starred kitchens throughout the Balearics, the focus is on simple, honest Mediterranean flavours elevated with incredible freshness and haute flourishes. Fine dining spot La Mesa d’Es Vedrà is the hotel’s flagship restaurant and is named for its commanding views of its namesake island, with the breezy Los Olivos specialising in relaxed poolside classics, plus fresh grilled seafood is especially revered. La Mirada is a rooftop crudo bar concept focussing on raw cuisine with a touch of Mediterranean – fresh oysters, scallops with saffron marinade, and the quinoa soufflé are memorable highlights.

Hotel bar

Libations are poured poolside from noon, but the cocktail bar on the La Mirada rooftop is where you’ll want to conclude the day. Preferably, do this with a Cala Vadella (tequila, earl grey tea, lime, and basil, served with Mediterranean tonic) or two.

Room service

There is round-the-clock in-room dining.

Spain

Petunia Ibiza is perched above the rugged Cala Carbó on Ibiza’s somnolent southwest coast, with the rocky Es Vedrà island just inshore.

Planes

Europe is exceptionally well-connected to Ibiza International Airport IBZ, which is 30-minutes away by car. The hotel offers private transfers for €120 each way, for up to four passengers.

Automobiles

There’s more to Ibiza than its beaches and the Pacha nightclub, and a car is the best way to unearth it. The major rental companies all have offices at the airport, and parking at the hotel is free.

Other

There is a year-round ferry service to Ibiza from Valencia (five hours) and Barcelona (nine hours). Local ferry routes connect to Mallorca.

Worth getting out of bed for

Ibiza has two distinct personalities. The first boasts Europe’s best nightclubs and everything that goes with them – Pacha is the original, and the areas around San Antonio and Playa D’en Bossa are where many others are found. But step away and Ibiza is a rural island still clinging to its hippie past with a flourishing slow food and organic wine scene. Petunia Ibiza can organise boat trips for exploring the coast in search of hidden beaches; the hike to see the sunset from Cap de Sa Talaia is a memory to bank, and the fortified Renaissance-era ramparts in Ibiza Town’s Dalt Vila offer a peaceful stroll.

Local restaurants

Cala Carbó’s Can Vicent has everything you’d expect of a Med restaurant worth its salt, they even have their own fishermen to make sure only Ibiza's finest is served. Further afield, Cala d’Hort has a wider choice, and our tip is the still-steaming saffron paella de marisco at El Carmen.

Local bars

Cataloguing Ibiza’s nightlife would take an epic greater than Don Quixote, but all you really need to be free is a chilled glass of Malvasia sipped in a beach bar with sand between your toes. Head for Restaurante Balneario at Cala Carbó, or to Vadella Beach Bar.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this sun-kissed resort in Ibiza and unpacked their Hawaiian Tropic and film cameras, a full account of their restorative break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Petunia Ibiza…

A draw for DJs and a magnet for midnight oil-burners, Ibiza’s legendary status as the Balearics’ hedonist hub has tended to dominate its reputation. But if you weren’t to  go to the nightlife hotspots (and we’re not saying you shouldn’t, they’re world-renowned for a reason), you’d never know they existed. This magical Mediterranean outpost is filled  with remote rocky villages, miles of dusty lanes, arid hiking trails through low forests of pine, countless beaches, wineries, and a rugged interior of ancient olive and citrus groves.

It’s a natural beauty you’ll find reflected at Petunia Ibiza. Its expansive gardens serve up that commanding view of Es Vedrá at every turn. Rooms are restfully dressed in baked-earth tones with rustic details and (in most cases) a terrace or balcony. And weekly yoga and pilates sessions are only enhanced by their alfresco setting. 

Maybe you’ll come to this Balearic bolthole to detox after hitting the clubs or maybe you’ll just come to chill, but in either case, you couldn’t be further from the mayhem. The southwest is a corner of the island with little development, and blissfully, there’s not all that much going on. If you want to drift gently into boozy post-lunch naps by the warm poolside, swim in deserted coves, or savour freshly grilled seafood over long dinners, this is your place.
