Wellness might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Ibiza, but the new Six Senses resort on the northern tip of the island has redefined the meaning of a luxury wellness experience.
Carved in to the cliff side on 20 acres of land overlooking Cala Xaracca Bay in Portinatx, the resort blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings.
Eco friendly architecture, organic local produce and thoughtful design elements, the Six Senses feels like an ultra stylish escape where you can truly focus on wellbeing while still having access to all of the hedonistic delights that Ibiza has on offer.
The sustainability efforts are impressive, gone are the plastic bathroom accessories and water bottle which have been replaced by eco friendly options. The resort has also partnered with the Ibiza Preservation Fund to protect the island’s biodiversity.
Ibiza isn’t renowned as a family destination but the resort caters for children and families with cooking classes, water sports and activities that young ones will love.
