Hotel Highlights

  • Flower-filled rural setting
  • Great Balinese-style spa
  • Cocktails and Mod/Med dining under the stars

Overview

A family-owned, kid-friendly farmhouse in serene central Ibiza, historic Atzaró hotel oozes relaxation and traditional refinement. Décor is as zen as the atmosphere, with simple white walls, cosy throw pillows and big windows for generous natural light. Aromas of orange blossom and rosemary sweep through this century-old converted farmhouse where private terraces and shady corners are calling for popping open a bottle of wine.

Worth getting out of bed for

There are good dive schools in Cala San Vicente (on the north side of the island) and in the Marina area of Santa Eulalia. You can charter any kind of boat through the hotel, just ask at reception. Or if you need a fix of retail therapy, or fancy perfecting your Ibi chic look, Benirrás Beach is great for bikinis, embroidered dresses, leather sandals and jewellery. The night market in San Carlos on Monday night is also fun for a trawl.

Local restaurants

For lunch, try the humble Es Bigote on Mastella beach, serving only fish stew; you’ll eat like royalty – provided you can get a table. There’s no phone so book in person a few days in advance. For all your favourite Spanish lunchtime fare, head to Restaurante Cala Xarraca (+34 971 33 35 18) in the cove of the same name; the fish stew is especially tasty. It’s very popular, but you can sit on the beach while waiting for a table to become available. La Paloma in San Lorenzo (+34 971 32 55 43) offers delicious Italian cooking at dinnertime. The ambience is so relaxed that it almost feels as though you are in someone’s home. For tasty tapas, Bar Destino in San Jose (+34 971 80 03 41) is opposite the church; no need to book for lunch but do so for dinner. For a respite from Mediterranean flavours, the Cardamom Club on Camino Puig de Missa in Santa Eulalia (+34 971 33 00 17) is a stylish Indian restaurant. Far for the madding crowd, S’Illot (+34 971 32 05 85) is just off the road to Portinatx, and is a great plastic-tables-and-chairs beach restaurant which specialises in paella and fish; build up an appetite splashing in the lovely clear waters there.

Planes

The nearest airport is Ibiza, which is served by EasyJet (www.easyjet.com), Monarch Airlines (www.monarch.co.uk) and British Airways (www.ba.com). It’s roughly 25 minutes away by car. The hotel offers a shuttle service on request; alternatively, you can hire a car, pick up a taxi directly outside the main terminal building, or take the hourly bus to the centre of Ibiza.

Trains

You can get to the island by rail by taking the overnight train to Barcelona (via Paris), then the fast ferry from Barcelona to Ibiza, which sails on most nights of the week (www.trasmediterranea.es).

Automobiles

Roughly halfway between Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia, take a left and drive towards San Juan. At the 15km mark, take a right when you see the sign for the hotel and follow this winding road for two kilometres; take a left, then the hotel is 200m away on the left. Your own wheels will be useful, since taxis are often booked up at least a day in advance during high season. There’s free parking at the hotel.

Atzaró

Anonymous review by Taryn Ross, Professional tastemaker

Agroturismo?’ Mr Smith asked, sounding slightly terrified, as we approached the hotel. ‘Does this mean we’ll be mucking out stables and milking the cows?’ ‘Don’t be ridiculous’, I answered, quietly eyeing the man pushing a wheelbarrow in the distance. I sure hoped we wouldn’t be singing for our supper. Thankfully, at Atzaró, one of Spain’s new agrotourism hotels, where a holistic approach to holidaying is the focus, you don’t have to harvest your own meals.

The converted century-old farmhouse is a típica Ibiza finca – all-white walls, windows and throw cushions. This hotel oozes what many folk would label ‘Zen’ and, seriously, from the moment we arrived, we felt relaxed. Usually this takes days, if not weeks, to achieve.

We came in on the early flight, so our room wasn’t ready, but Bea, the enthusiastic front-of-house (with great Ibiza-made gladiator sandals) greeted us with a smile and proceeded to show us around the grounds, which we were welcome to enjoy until our room was ready (and you knew when she used the word ‘welcome’, she meant it). And what grounds they are... Off the breakfast room (which serves a delectable feast until a very civilised 13h) is a large pool, surrounded by plush loungers, massage tables, and the requisite reclining daybeds. A highlight is definitely the cool-water Jacuzzi. Why hadn’t we thought of this back home?

We could have stayed there, basking in the sun, listening to the Balearic beats that were playing unobtrusively in the background, but Bea urged us to explore some more. Down a few stairs, we were led to Atzaró’s luxury spa, consisting of a lap pool (very chic, very skinny), several treatment rooms, a swish marble-laden changing room and, again, daybeds – one of which I instantly marked as my own (using a towel – not in the tomcat sense). Staff glided around in breezy billowing whites, and subtle signs reading ‘silence, please’ swayed from orange trees. I highly recommend a deep facial (they use a brush on special cases; clearly my urban pores were highly polluted). A quick look around made me realise why Kate Moss is said to have spent £30k here in one week on a spa holiday. This was pure luxury.

Ibiza is funny that way. Hedonists and hippies live harmoniously. And Atzaró seems to reflect that effortlessly. There’s nothing bootcamp about this set-up: champagne and mojitos are as much a part of the schedule as yoga and massages. Yet respect for nature and the body is at the root of everything. So is balance – something most of us city-dwellers are sorely missing.

After our tour, we decided to hop in the car and do a bit of exploring. After what we thought would be a brief chat, but was in fact a 45-minute animated ‘conversation’ in Spanglish, Catalan, Ibicenco, with the man holding the fort at the roadside grocery shop, we made a jaunt to some local beaches he recommended. Anyone who thinks that Ibiza’s beaches are made up only of strips of burnt tourists hasn’t seen the island properly. In two hours we drove through what felt like deserts, bushland and the tropics. We pondered how such a great variety of vegetation thrives here (and all so green!) in between trips to vacant beaches.

On one stop – Cala Boix – Mr S leaned over and said: ‘I feel like painting – this scenery is truly inspiring.’ Painting? It had been years since he’d felt so artistic. After begging Es Bigote (‘The Mustache’) to let us into his eponymous waterfront restaurant (he said no – the same response the King of Spain received when he turned up unannounced, so we felt in good company), we returned to the hotel to be taken to our room by the lovely Bea. After passing under our own personal grapevine, we were led into a corner cove, which, complete with outdoor sofas and carved driftwood recliners, and the scent of lavender filling the air, was home for the next two days.

We had a sitting room with fireplace, so cosy for winter; a large cavernous bedchamber, with a raised Japanese platform-style bed; and a well-stocked minibar, with contents including Veuve – nice touch. The ensuite, however, was the main attraction. After stepping through what felt like a secret door, we emerged in a terracotta-tiled oasis. The Asiatic/Arabic/African artwork and artefacts in here were as attractive as the ones in the lobby. The room had all the mod cons, but with scenery as good as this, they were duly ignored.

We spent a blissful day by the pool, splashing and falling in and out of consciousness, only to rally ourselves for a quick trip to Benirràs (the legendary bongo-beating sunset hang-out), and then back to the hotel for dinner. When we arrived at the outdoor restaurant, we again rejoiced at how well they do it in España. You can spend all the money in the world at some of London’s top haunts, but there’s nothing quite like dining alfresco for hours, amid palms and candles, fountains and statues, under the stars. The modern Catalan cuisine was delicious, the service was refreshingly unhurried (no 90-minute tables here), and the entertainment impressive. There was live opera, full orchestra during dinner, then a DJ into the wee hours.

After dinner, we took a stroll around the hotel, trying to decide how we could recreate the lily-pad pond look in our inner-city garden. More importantly, could we keep the fish alive? Sipping cocktails from the moonlit outdoor bar, we decided this was as good as it gets. I’d never have thought I’d be going to Ibiza to recharge, but that’s exactly what we did. Two days here felt like two weeks – it was like a giant power nap. And I definitely plan on doing it again. Actually, forgive me the clichéd Smith sign-off but, seriously, we’ve already booked.
