This hotel hotspot in Ibiza has a history behind it and after a evening at the Boutique Hostal Salinas Ibiza, hotel bar maybe the owners will share their story with you. It is a good one and brings you back to the hippie day’s of Ibiza before the party trains arrived. If you worship the sun and want to sunbathe like a local than you have found your home in Ibiza. At one point while sunbathing on Las Salinas white sand beach, for a minute I thought I was in Brazil, until I heard Spanish. Sunbathers of all ages, couples and families bare it all on the beach, and it’s so Ibiza to see. All in good taste of course, just remember to bring your temporary tattoos for fun activates on the beach only five minutes away from the Luxury Boutique Hostal Salinas Ibiza.
Beach Bum Luxe at Boutique Hostal Salinas Ibiza
Yes, this is a luxury hostal believe it or not and when you arrive you are greeted with a warm smile and an “Hola” from the lovely staff. Look out for Javier, he is usually working the day shift and is there to answer your questions and offer you your first welcoming cerveza. The most amazing part about staying in this luxury hostel and restaurant, is that it’s in the centre of a spectacular nature reserve, boasting sand dunes, forests, salt plains, beautiful beaches and incredible sunset views. They maybe one or two backpackers, but the clientele is definitely of the upper crust who want to be beach bums. But on a more luxury experience this is not an all night party paradise. You may get that morning drink after partying all night, but you will be able to go to your room and go to sleep after you feed your hangover.
The owners and long-time island residents Duesi Wolfmeir, Anita Dey and David Phillips, have put a lot of hard work into refurbishing the hostel style hotel and are very proud to share there stories at the bar or in the restaurant with you. It was nice to meet them and hear the wild tales about the place. We actually fell in love with Ibiza at our second stop on our week long vacation in Ibiza searching for a few hotel hotspots that aren’t party centrals.
Boutique Hostal Salinas Ibiza offers 11 simple yet chic rooms with terraces, bathed in light and boasting mod cons. If you want a break from the beach, or just too tired to walk to the beach you can enjoy a cool plunge pool and sunbathing terrace, with drinks and food at your feet served with a smile. The staff is so warm you won’t want to leave.The rooms are clean and compact with a mini bar for those late night snacks, and each bathroom is kitted out with exclusive Boutique Hostal Salinas beauty products created with salt harvested directly from Salinas as the main beauty-boosting ingredient. The products are also available at reception if you want bigger versions to take home with you.
The hotel’s restaurant, lounge bar and garden are also open to the public, and available for Ibiza weddings and one-off soirees. Drop in before or after hiking, trekking, diving, swimming, sunbathing or sailing to see why Ibiza locals have been hooked on this hotspot since it opened in 2009. On the weekend this summer they will also host OnceUponATime a fashion expo with local designers, a DJ and a card reader for a little after sun fun, with cocktails flowing, hip locals and tourist mixing and mingling. Anita is always somewhere chatting up friends and the clients to mak sure everyone is having a good time. It was really hard to leave Boutique Hostal Salinas Ibiza, because it was actually a perfect place to stay for two days. You have everything you wanted right at your fingertips, a beautiful beach, amazing staff and accommodations. We forgot to mention the bus to Ibiza town is a five minute walk, so pack lightly and stay here for a few days and forget everything else. If you have to be connected to the outside world, the hostel has that covered the internet connection was one of the best in Ibiza. Which is actually rare, and we found out for good reason too.
