Nobu Ibiza Bay amplifies the pleasures of Ibiza and makes for an unforgettable escape. It’s all here; island relaxation with Instagram-worthy sea front swimming pools, and beachside daybeds; a dedicated family pool, as well as a kids club with certified child minders; gastronomy that includes the Balearic’s first Nobu restaurant, the ‘Say BiBo’ summer pop-up by Dania Garcia, and Mediterranean flavours at the hotel’s Chambao restaurant – oh and a vibrant bar scene too. Expect great wellness facilities too, with the Spa, by Six Senses, a new gym, and a dedicated wellness area for meditation, yoga and more. There’s even a John Frieda salon. Despite the temptations to stay on the resort, Talamanca Bay has some lovely Spanish restaurants and bars, and one is so close to all the vibrancy (and history) of Ibiza Town, writes Andrew Forbes (The Luxury Editor).
Concierge is eager to share the beauty of their island with you. BEyond Ibiza Bay includes an enticing selection of curated experiences from wine tasting at the island’s boutique wineries, hiking with the hotel’s guide, Manuel; to taking a spin in a Mustang.
We started our Ibiza days as the all-day boho beachside chiringuito Chambao. Fresh deliciousness including handmade juices, and smoothies, local and exotic fruit, pastries, cold cuts, local and internationally cheeses, and elegantly prepared hot dishes. What a great way to wake up. Shaded by parasols, toes in the sand – perfect
Beach & Poolside Bliss
Holidays are about taking it easy, and Nobu Ibiza Bay has created some stunning areas to kick back and chill. The family pool is equally impressive as the adults’ pool – both with daybeds and loungers, and the attentive service of the team – the cocktails include light creations ideal for day drinking. The best thing? You can order lunch from Nobu and have it delivered to your sunbed. How indulgent is that?
The absolute highlight of our stay was a meal at Nobu Restaurant Ibiza. It was outstanding. Head Chef Giacomo Notarbartolo has created a unique Nobu experience adding some truly original and delectable dishes to the Nobu menu. Each dish celebrates not only the unique style we love from Nobu but also the exceptional local produce from Ibiza, including world-class seafood. Open for lunch and dinner, as well as Brunch during the weekends.

Michelin star chef Dani Garcia has brought his famous BiBo restaurant to for the summer. The new Say BiBo pop-up offers iconic dishes from the BiBo menu, such as the whole fried marinated sea bass. Also, new, and exclusive to BiBo Ibiza Bay is a menu of tapas dishes with a Mexican influence, co-designed by Chef Abril Chamorra including freshly caught Red Shrimp Aguachile. The BiBo Ibiza Bay menu guarantees bold, new flavour pairings, inspired by Garcia’s international travels.
I was bowled over by the quality of the menu. What’s more the setting, on the terrace overlooking the bay is superb, the service excellent. Expect fresh, bold dishes that really impress.
