Ibiza has a reputation as a hedonistic paradise where young travellers congregate to spend their evenings clubbing and their days recovering poolside. While this is true, you can also experience a more relaxed Mediterranean experience by staying at the nearby and secluded Isla Sa Ferradura.
A private estate once rumoured to be a pirate hideout during the 17th century, Isla Sa Ferradura is 8.5 acres of luxurious accommodation that can house up to 12 people.
Designed by Spanish architect Jaime Romano, this idyllic holiday home has a contemporary look inspired by chic Mediterranean design, with the homes interior sporting natural, coastal colours and local artwork and sculptures.
The property comes with six bedrooms, gym, yoga and massage room, spa, jacuzzi and boat shed. There are also two water features; one a 23-metre terrace-level swimming pool and the other a smaller laguna pool set amidst a tropical garden.
A 750 square foot rooftop terrace with two bars and a DJ area allows the party to kick on all night while providing spectacular ocean views. A staff of 22 are available at your beck and call 24 hours a day and will make sure your stay is unforgettable.
As you can imagine, renting this private island isn't cheap. A one week stay will set you back close to AU$355,000 in offseason, and you'd likely be up for nearly double that this Euro summer. If you've got that sort of cash lying around, you can book a week or two at Isla Sa Ferradura through Boutique Hotel Awards.
