Ibiza for cool kids

Mark's verdict:

If you danced the noughties away in Ibiza but you’re now heading back with family and (a hint of) respectability, the Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay is ideal. It’s in Talamanca Bay, close enough to Ibiza Town for a blast from the past but quiet enough to be family-friendly. And so beautiful: think touchy-feely fabrics, two pools – one chill-out and one for kids – and, of course, Nobu’s signature fusion food.

Travelbeam Luxury Hotels says

The Nobu Ibiza Bay Hotel is a stylish and contemporary hotel set in a stunning position on Ibiza’s Talamanca Bay, just a 15-minute transfer from the airport and 2km from Ibiza Town.

This resort has quickly become established as one of the most in-demand luxury hotels in the Balearics, not least amongst families seeking a laid back, chic and child-friendly bolthole. It opened in June 2017 and several of our team have stayed there.

We love the contemporary design, the spacious and light guest rooms and suites and the laid-back beach vibe.

The choice of four eateries includes Nobu restaurant, famous the world over for its superb Japanese fusion cuisine. There’s a delicious healthy spin to the food, wherever you eat – we enjoyed amazing seafood, refreshing salads and lots of gluten-free options. Breakfast in Chamboa restaurant is a winner for families too, enjoyed with your toes in the sand so parents can relax while the children play.

Aside from direct access to the gorgeous sandy beach, facilities include two fresh water pools, a full service spa, yoga pavilion, fitness centre and the Chambao chiringuito beach club.

The hotel is just a five minute walk from the marina and 20 minutes by ferry to the old town. The hotel’s concierge is on hand to secure tables for you in the most popular bars, restaurants and clubs and to organise guided sightseeing and boat trips, tailor-made just for your family. The Travelbeam can also make reservations for you before you head off to Ibiza.

There’s a Kids Club for ages four to 14 years, open daily between 10am and 10pm (€40 per day including lunch). Activities include a movie night each evening, football on the beach, cookery lessons and DJ workshops . The Kids Club team also offer baby-sitting (payable locally).

Travelbeam clients can enjoy special rates with breakfast included.
