There are plenty of sweet new spots for you on the White Isle, says Chloe Street

NATIVO

From the team behind the well-established five-star Aguas de Ibiza Grand Luxe Hotel comes Nativo, a four-star, 99-room property that’s just opened in Siesta, a quiet residential area in the hills above Santa Eulària des Riu. The vibe mimics the laid-back luxe of its big sister, with three sand-strewn pool areas (the roof is adults-only) with hammocks and Balinese daybeds; daily sun salutations and sound baths on the rooftop and a health food café championing Ibizan cuisine and local produce. Book a terrace suite and drink up the sunset from your private hot tub.
Rooms from £136

OKU

If you’re looking for a spoiling
oasis close enough to San Antonio to dabble in its party scene but not close enough to hear it, check out Oku. Nestled in the hills above Cala Gració bay, the hotel, which opened in May, is a swimming enthusiast’s dream, featuring an Olympic-size pool. The 185 minimalist, earthy-toned rooms all have balconies (some with sundowners-at-mine terraces) and there’s a four-bedroom villa which has a private chef and pool. Opt for slick sushi in the main restaurant of four courtesy of a former Sushisamba chef or follow up your rooftop yoga session with a life-giving tincture from the
juice bar. The DJ-led Sunday brunches are an institution in the making. Rooms from £312

CASA PACHA FORMENTERA

It’s been a strange year for club owners, but rather than sit about twiddling their shot glasses team Pacha, owners of Ibiza’s most famous club, used the time to build a hotel (their third) on neighbouring isle Formentera, which opened in May. Sitting on Migjorn, the island’s longest beach, the hotel comprises just 14 suites, all of which come with neutral-hued beachy interiors, sea views and private terraces or balconies. The idea is a reversion to a simpler, 1950s Ibiza; think wooden sharing tables in the beach restaurant, massage beds under the pine trees and yoga on the roof. Not a VIP wristband in sight. Rooms from £330

SIX SENSES

Tucked away on the northern tip of the island, 20-acre Six Senses opened this month and is set to flood your Instagram with its lush gardens, perfect pools and beachfront cave suites. Luxe sustainability is the name of the game: it’s already won awards for its eco-friendly design, there’s an on-site farm from which celebrity chef Eyal Shani will pick ingredients for the four restaurants and the boutique Agora will champion conscious brands and even clothing rental. It’s not all virtuous; the Live Cave music venue is set to be a mecca for Negroni-fuelled naughtiness. For ultimate player points, book the Cave Royale room, which comes with a grand piano and a secret door to a recording studio. Rooms from £510
