chill-out beds and panoramic views. There is an elegant restaurant, which serves delicious Mediterranean home grown food. The hotel has its own stables and a private yacht for cruises along the coastline. Set amidst fields of sunflowers, cherry, lemon and orange trees, with a sensual and relaxing ambiance, Can Curreu is a jewel of a hotel. Nearby in Santa Eularia, a similar


conversion, Atzaro, is a fusion of Ibiza architecture, Arab, Asian and African style, set in exotic gardens. It has a superb restaurant serving International cuisine, a Zen spa and wellness retreat, offering a range of Asian treatments. The hotel runs activity holidays and retreats, with yoga, life coaching, and dance classes, which run throughout the year including winter,


offering an idyllic setting for some spiritual nourishing. Atzaro has an impressive chill out bar and party area, where it hosts many of the island’s celebrity events and spectacular fashion shows. The hotel is a favourite among the ‘in’ crowd and celebrities. For sports enthusiasts,


Ibiza has lots


on offer. Cycling is very popular and there are many organised guided cycle tours. A wealth of terraced landscapes, wooded hills and coastal routes provide itineraries with different levels of difficulty. Through almond groves, orchards and beautiful valleys, Ibiza is considered an unbeatable paradise for cyclists. The extraordinary clarity of the sea around the island makes it a haven for divers, and it is on the UNESCO world heritage list for its ecological biodiversity,


which is due to the oceanic Posidonia meadows (plants found on the sea beds). It is the best preserved nature reserve in the Mediterranean, with dense seagrass, coral reefs and over 200 marine species. Sailing and kayaking take place around the various inlets and offshore islands with the opportunity to go ashore in nature reserves like Ses Salines or Cala D’Hort. The quiet country lanes and dirt tracks provide idyllic unspoilt natural circuits for horse riding and many of the hotels have their own stables. A holiday in Ibiza can be anything you


want it to be: that is the philosophy on this island where freedom is the cultural identity. Many consider it to be the closest thing on earth to Utopia – and I can quite understand why.
