Six Senses Hotels and Resorts has opened its newest property, Six Senses Ibiza.
Conceived by architect and developer Jonathan Leitersdorf, Six Senses Ibiza is set in secluded Xarraca bay, which is a ‘long-hidden’ secret on Ibiza’s northern tip. Ibiza international airport is a 35-minute drive away from the resort.
The resort offers a private car airport transfer to or from Ibiza Airport. The transfer time is around 35 minutes. It also offers airport transfers in an electric Mercedes van.
Powered by its own renewable energy source – up to 51% at any given moment – and with punchy zero waste and zero single-use plastic targets, the resort has sustainability at its core. The result is the Balearic Islands’ first resort and residential community to achieve certification by BREEAM, the world’s original and leading assessment of sustainability within the built environment, and a new benchmark for sustainable real estate worldwide.
Jonathan Leitersdorf, Architect and Developer, explains:
Six Senses Ibiza is a reflection of the natural vibrations and vitality of the Balearics. By channeling the destination’s unique sense of community and celebration, we have created a truly transformative environment wherein guests are invited to meaningfully connect with nature, each other and themselves while discovering the elements that make Ibiza unlike anywhere else in the world.
Six Senses Ibiza consists of 116 guest accommodations across a 20-acre (8-hectare) site including fully appointed Suites, Cave Suites and three, four and five bedroom Townhouses.
Deluxe rooms are 44 square meters in size whereas the Five Bedroom Townhouse have 464 square meters of space.
Led by Master Chef Eyal Shani, the resort’s flagship dining destination, HaSalon Ibiza, and indeed the full bar and restaurant offering, showcase the powers of organic, seasonal, and locally sourced ingredients in new and innovative ways. Shani intends to revitalize Ibiza’s energy for plant-based dining, harnessing the island’s natural abundance of ingredients — from avocados to watermelons, oranges, lemons and Ibiza rock salt. The goal is for the food to do the talking. There is also a rich supply of olive oil, an absolute essential for Shani. The open kitchen allows the guests to become part of Shani’s creative process as they gather at the 50-seat chef’s table in the shade of 100-year-old olive trees.
The Farmers’ Market offers an authentic selection of natural and sustainable specialty items, from wood-fired pizzas to traditional coffees and treats. The Orchard is the property’s most intimate dining venue that blends classic, local cuisine with Mexican-Peruvian cocktails. Live Cave, Twin Bar, and Farmacy Bar offer nourishing mixology experiences comprised of organic, made-to-order juices, elixirs, wines, and spirits.

To lead guests to ‘great consciousness, passion, reconnection, and a reawakened sense of self’, Six Senses Ibiza offers multi-day immersions during the cool season. Starting this year in September, ‘Grow a New Body with Dr. Villoldo’ taps into unique genealogies to detoxify and reset the body and ‘Journey to Profound Transformation with Marisa Peer’ unlocks guests’ full potential. The first of the recurring YogaFlow and BodyFlow immersions will take place between 20th and 26th October, incorporating the benefits of movement, community and self-care to ignite a new zest for life. For those guests who are short on time, the resort offers mini immersions in as little as 90 minutes.
Creativity at the resort
With programming masterminded by composer, producer, and recording artist Tomer Biran, and supported by music industry executive Shivas Howard-Brown, the Beach Caves is the heartbeat of the resort. The pair will channel Ibiza’s ancient landscape and hypnotic natural rhythms, using McIntosh and Sonus faber technology to create an immersive sensory experience through live music events and performances that represent cultures from all over the world. The finishing touch is a DJ booth created specifically for vinyl with a selection of curated Ibiza titles for Beach Cave guests to mix.
Visual arts are represented in the galleries of the resort’s corridors and public spaces through a unique shoppable collection curated by Magnum Photo. Each of the eighteen gallery concepts has an individual message presenting and weaving authentic, visual storytelling into the Six Senses backdrop to inspire consciousness throughout.
Agora, a Sustainable Fashion Concept
Agora, part shop, part entertainment and discovery center, seeks to bring together the ideas of luxury and sustainability. Curated by renowned fashion editors Daniela Agnelli and Tiffanie Darke, the idea behind Agora is to redefine luxury today.
The resort says:
We believe the true modern meaning of luxury is moving through the world in as frictionless a way as possible.
The story of Agora has been curated into four chapters: ‘Recycle’, ‘Restore’, ‘Restore’ and ‘Rent’.
Guests can get their adrenaline pumping through cliff jumping or unwind with a serene selection of complimentary water activities including snorkeling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding or underwater guided meditation. Those who want to unlock the magic of the surrounding area can take a paddle trip to the fishermen’s huts at Cala Xuclar, shop at the local Sunday craft market in bohemian San Juan or take a boat trip to the mystical Es Vedra island.
