Review of Cas Gasi Hotel in Ibiza, Spain.

Cas Gasi – A bucolic hideaway in a family farmhouse where being eco-friendly doesn’t mean foregoing luxury.

This hotel started life as a place for Ibiza-born Luis and Barcelona-born Margaret to raise their family and start an organic farm. Luckily for the world, they didn’t keep their slice of heaven to themselves. They converted their home into a boutique B&B that encompasses the couple’s passion for sustainable living in a way that manages to avoid feeling worthy or rustic. Thanks to Margaret’s exquisite taste in interiors, the house is sophisticated and the hotel’s eco-friendly aspects are integrated rather than showy: food is a real farm-to-table affair and there’s comprehensive waste recycling going on behind the scenes as well as solar heating panels and a sewage filtration system that recycles wastewater to use in the garden. All this, and the pools (yes, there are two) and jacuzzi are chemical-free. Guilt-free extravagance and supreme relaxation in one idyllic package.

Thanks to its central location, the hotel’s not more than a 20-minute drive to any of the 3 major towns – Ibiza Town (Eivissa), Sant Antoni de Portmany, and Santa Eulària des Rio. In fact, it won’t take you more than 40 minutes to drive pretty much anywhere on the island.

Best Restaurants

    The title for the island’s best bullit de peix (bu-yeet di pesh) is hotly contested and you’ll be in for a treat if you try this regional specialty in any great fish restaurant. Originally concocted by fishers who would have to cook everything in one pan, various fish pieces are cooked in a broth, sieved out, and eaten, followed with sticky rice cooked with cuttlefish in the same broth and drizzled with aioli. If you like seafood, you must not leave without trying this flavor explosion.

  • Edén – Five-star Hotel Na Xamena’s newly reopened restaurant from Michelin 2-starred chef Fran López, offering fine dining with what may be the best view on the island.

Entertainment Restaurants/Smaller Clubs

  • Pike’s – Reading about Pike’s heyday is a bit like reciting the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, with a guest list that has included Grace Jones, Spandau Ballet, Bon Jovi, and Freddie Mercury among others. Its pool was also the location of Wham’s Club Tropicana video. Nowadays, the hotel-bar, run by the Ibiza Rocks group, does theme brunches, afternoon teas, and poolside dinner events. The bar’s open to the public but reservations are necessary for many events and for the restaurant. 14-minute drive (6 miles).

The party starts around 5pm. 20-minute drive (7 miles).

Superclubs

    Ibiza’s superclubs generally run from May-October, with spectacular opening and closing parties. Not only do you have to choose which club to go to (see below as well as websites like Ibiza Spotlight), but also which particular night/event to go for. Once that’s decided, all that’s left is to plan which Discobus to get (or order your taxi), dress up, and get your credit card ready; this much fun does not come cheap.

  • Amnesia – Throwing great parties to help you forget life’s sorrows since the 1980s with all the biggest DJs, immersive jamborees, as well as live performances from international artists. Famous nights include the outrageous and creative elrow as well as the La Espuma foam party and the ever-popular Pyramid. 12-minute drive (5 miles).
  • Privilege – With a capacity of 10,000 (nearly 70,000 sq ft), Privilege holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest club. In its former incarnations, this was KU club as well as the site of the Manumission night, and it still draws a large gay crowd, especially to its SuperMartXé night. 11-minute drive (4.5 miles).
  • Es Paradis – Es Paradis does fun, pure and simple. Water parties, neon paint parties, R&B, and reggaeton nights are on the calendar, and the inside is a dazzling maze with a garden, soaring Grecian columns, and a pyramid roof. 17-minute drive (7 miles).

  • Pacha – Legendary club that started small in 1973 but has since burst out of the island to become an international mega brand (those cherries…). Still going strong thanks to its program of resident DJs and long-running nights like the ‘authentic hippie party’ Flower Power and Monday night’s The Masquerade. Warm up at the club’s intimate and glamorous sushi restaurant (with live DJ on the decks, of course). 17-minute drive (8 miles).
  • – Located right opposite its sister club, Ushuaïa, Hï keeps the party going all night with DJ residencies. Its nights are varied and imaginative (F*** Me I’m Famous!/Glitterbox/Black Coffee), as is the quirky decor. 22-minute drive (13 miles).

Nearby Shopping & Cool Shops

    Thanks to the thousands of creatives who’ve been drawn here over the years, Ibiza is an eminently stylish place that has spawned its very own fashion styles. Look out for the terms ‘Adlib’ and ‘boho chic,’ which bring together traditional Balearic fabrics with whimsical, freewheeling flourishes. The best places to shop on the island are the port area in Ibiza Town and the gentrified town of Santa Gertrudis, a veritable treasure trove. Do not, under any circumstances, miss the concept stores Gallería Elefante and Sluiz. While many shops are ditching the traditional siesta between 2-5pm, you’ll still find it harder to shop in the afternoon. On the upside, shops stay open until 9pm or later.

  • Cerámica Can Kinoto – Carme Corominas and colleagues have produced high-quality artisanal pottery here since 1978. Worth a visit. Open 10:30am-1pm & 3-6pm. 9-minute drive (4 miles).
  • La Galería Elefante – More of a sensory experience than a shop, you can drench yourself in everything you need for the complete boho-chic lifestyle, including clothes, jewelry, kids’ toys, gifts, and homeware. 9-minute drive (4.5 miles).
  • Es Cuçons La Tienda – Gorgeous homeware from the stylish hotel of the same name. 10-minute drive (4 miles).
  • Sluiz – From the cows hanging in the trees and outrageous parking lot signs to the cafe dripping in kitsch, Sluiz has to be experienced to be believed. An enormous warehouse, full of fantastical, fun, and fabulous clothing and homeware. There’s a cafe too. 10-minute drive (5 miles).
  • Aurobelle – Light, bright, whimsical, and ethically-sourced clothes in cotton and silk. Flagship store in Santa Gertrudis (4 miles, 11-minute drive), with outposts in Sant Josep and Las Dalias.
  • Somm – Excellent wine shop focusing on hard-to-find small-batch stuff. Good tastings and events. Just behind Wild Beets. Closed on Sundays and other days during siesta. 11-minute drive (4 miles).
  • Sombrerería Bonet – Selling Ibiza’s finest selection of hats for over 100 years, this island institution is still run by the Bonet family. 19-minute drive (8 miles).
  • Charo Ruiz – Visit the flagship store of one of the founders of Ibiza’s ‘Adlib’ fashion. Ruiz’s gypsy/boho couture made with fine fabrics started on a market stall in the 1980s and has since become a worldwide brand and a byword for Ibiza-chic. 20-minute drive (8 miles).
  • Carrer de Guillem de Montgrí – This street is bursting with great stores. If you’re looking for boho chic, try Jeffrey’s or Isla Ibiza Bonita, complemented with beaded jewelry from Piedras. Meanwhile, Can Gourmet/Gourmet Bocadillos does budget-friendly, mouthwatering sandwiches with local and international delicacies such as jamón serrano, caviar, or wagyu beef. 22-minute drive (8 miles).
  • Los Otros – Concept shop selling on-trend toiletries, interior pieces, clothing, jewelry, and more, with a restaurant and cafe/bar featuring a great terrace. Perfect after Las Dalias. 23-minute drive (14 miles).

Nearby Attractions

    For an overview and pictures of all the beaches, go to the official Balearic Island tourist site. Ibiza’s international reputation for being a party island does not disappoint. The island has everything from the biggest club in the world to wild costume party nights, grubby underground hedonism, and everything in between. There’s music for all tastes and the clubs are multigenerational affairs that tend to be tolerant and diverse: it’s all about having fun. For those who want to have a good time without the raving, try one of the entertainment restaurants or chill-out bars at sunset.

  • Puig de Missa & Santa Eulària des Riu – Santa Eulària is a delightful city to explore with a pleasant beach and great indoor food market, but if you only have time for one thing in this area, do not miss the majestic 16th-century Puig de Missa (pweesh deh meesa). It is possible to drive up but make sure to wander around the characterful cluster of streets up there and marvel at the views. 18-minute drive (9 miles).
  • Sant Antoni de Portmany & Around – ‘San An’ gets a bad rap for being flooded with young, drunk Brits, but if you can navigate your way around them (avoid the blocks around Carrer Santa Agnes), you’ll find a delightful, diverse town with excellent restaurants and a glorious bay full of little villages and coves to explore. It has some of the island’s most famous and enduring superclubs like Es Paradis and bars like the ever-popular Sunset Strip. 19-minute drive (7 miles).
  • Dalt Vila – 16th-century walled city within Ibiza Town’s old quarter with a warren of steep, pedestrianized, and cobbled streets (wear flat shoes with grip). There’s a cathedral, castle, the ancient Unesco-protected Puig des Molins necropolis and attached archeological museum, churches and little chapels, a monastery, a contemporary art museum, lookout points, and medieval bulwarks. There are a few ways into Dalt Vila but the magnificent Portal de ses Taules on the Plaça de la Constitució is by far the most dramatic. Every Friday night, you can enjoy traditional Ibizan dancing and costumes at the Baluarde de Sant Pere. 23-minute drive (8 miles).
  • Las Dalias – Ibiza has long attracted people seeking an alternative lifestyle and nowhere is a more enduring symbol of their legacy than Las Dalias hippy market just outside Sant Carles de Peralta. As the market grew in popularity (it draws up to 20,000 people on Saturdays), it inevitably became more corporate: many stallholders accept credit cards and there’s even an online store. Nevertheless, it’s well worth exploring the market’s heady mix of clothes, jewelry, souvenirs, handicrafts, artwork, and more. It’s a fun place to hang out, with lots of food stalls and club/live music nights. 24-minute drive (13 miles). There’s a much smaller version that’s slightly more authentic in Sant Joan de Labritja on Saturdays (14 miles, 24-minute drive).
  • Sant Josep & Sa Talaia (hiking) – The tourist board has produced a good guide to some of the best hikes on the island, but for view-hunters, head for Sa Talaia, Ibiza’s highest peak at 1,550ft above sea level. The walk starts in the delightful town of Sant Josep, which somehow manages to fuse the best of sleepy inland Ibiza with stylish stores and eateries. 25-minute drive (12 miles) to Sant Josep.
  • Ses Salines – Spectacular salt flats and protected woodlands. Excellent birding opportunities; you can sometimes spot flamingos. There’s an interpretation center if you want to learn more about the area. The beach of the same name is one of the island’s best. For one of the most fabulous bar-restaurants on the whole island, take the dirt path to Experimental Beach on Cap des Falcó, where you can eat and drink from the comfort of your sun lounger. 26-minute drive (14 miles) to Platja de ses Salines/30-minute drive (15 miles) to Experimental Beach.
  • Es Vedrà & Southern Beaches – The south-westerly section of the island is most famous for the stunning Es Vedrà rock formation in the sea, and it is also home to some fantastic beaches. Standouts include: Cala d’Hort – for the best views of Es Vedrà, you can go out on boat trips from here to see it up close; Es Cubells – for its magnificently situated cliffside church and off-the-beaten-track cove; and Cala Vadella – one of the most perfect little beach villages, with a crescent of sand and a pretty plaza right on the beach with all the amenities you’d need for a day out. All are 30-40 minute drives (18 miles).

Nearby Markets or Grocery Stores

  • Central Can Escandell – On the outskirts of Santa Gertrudis, this supermarket has a great selection of organic local fruits and vegetables, as well as gourmet products. Open Monday-Saturday 7:30am-9pm, Sunday 8am-2pm. If they don’t have what you need, there’s a Suma supermarket opposite. 11-minute drive (6 miles).

Ibiza Town is best explored on foot.

At the center of Ibiza Town (Eivissa), the old port area (the white buildings) and Dalt Vila (the medieval town on the hill) are the areas you must not miss. It’s a good idea to park somewhere near the Formentera ferry (pictured) and explore the old town by foot as a lot of it is pedestrianized.

Isla Ibiza Bonita is a popular Dutch boutique.

The port area itself is a warren of crumbling houses, characterful narrow alleys, and charming shops like Isla Ibiza Bonita, a Dutch brand that has gone global. This shop evokes its origins, stocking its own designs as well as locally made accessories.

Sombrería Bonet sells authentic hats.

Ever fancied a genuine Ecuadorian Montecristi Panama hat? The century-old hat shop Sombrería Bonet has many.

Portal de ses Taules is pretty steep.

One of the best ways into Dalt Vila is the Portal de ses Taules. Do not attempt to enter without shoes with decent grip as it’s very slippery and very steep.

TiraPallá rooftop bar offers great views.

Around the Portal de ses Taules, there are tons of great restaurants and drinking holes, including TiraPallá, a convivial rooftop bar so high up you can almost peek into Dalt Vila. Not for anyone afraid of heights. For the island’s vibrant LGBTIQ scene, head for Lola’s next door.

S’Escalinata in Dalt Vila offers outdoor seating.

Inside Dalt Vila, there are some very good restaurants like La Dispensa as well as S’Escalinata (pictured), with its unique seating and excellent view of the city.

Heart club also offers acrobatics and fine dining.

The clubs of Botafoch are famous worldwide. This place is a relative newcomer, but it has stolen many hearts (wink) thanks to its incredible combination of acrobatics, fine dining, and clubbing. Botafoch is a short drive from downtown.

Fish Shack serves fresh catch of the day.

On the other side of Talamanca Bay from Marina Botafoch is Fish Shack, a picturesque outdoor canteen where they serve up whatever’s been caught that day with a salad and potatoes – wonderful stuff.

Platja d’en Bossa beach has great clubs.

On the southern side of Ibiza Town is the island’s most famous beach, Platja d’en Bossa, with its gorgeous long strip of sand and huge club scene (Ushuaïa and Hï are both here).

Ses Salines has a great beach and lots of birds.

Just south of Bossa Beach is an area of extraordinary natural beauty, Ses Salines. It’s especially good for birding and also has a stunning beach of the same name.

Es Boldadó offers a good view of the Es Vedrà rock formation.

If you can see only one place in the south, make it the Es Vedrà rock formation. There’s nowhere better to gaze at it than Cala d’Hort or the nearby restaurant Es Boldadó.

Sunset Ashram is very popular in the evenings.

Sunset Ashram, right on the southernmost tip of Sant Antoni de Portmany bay, is one of the best places to watch the sun setting over the island. Get there in plenty of time as there’s often a last minute rush.

Sant Antoni's Sunset Strip is world famous.

Sant Antoni itself gets some of the best sunsets on the island, so much so that its Sunset Strip (which includes the famous bars Cafe Mambo and Cafe del Mar) is world-famous.

Es Paradis has superb water parties.

Es Paradis may be one of the island’s oldest superclubs, but its water parties will keep you refreshed. It’s a good entry to the clubbing scene.

Sant Miquel de Balansat's church offers great views.

Almost directly north of the hotel is Sant Miquel de Balansat, a quaint little village with a hilltop church with this magnificent view. From there, the beautiful road leads down to Port de Sant Miquel, where you’ll find 2 excellent seafood restaurants, Chiringuito Pascual and Port Balansat right on the beach.

Las Dalias is an enormous hippy market.

In the north of the island, don’t miss the enormous hippy market, Las Dalias. Despite its success, it still has an air of authenticity about it thanks to its artisan stalls and freewheelers who come for the socializing.

Puig de Missa offers superb views.

The views from Puig de Missa in Santa Eularia des Riu make the journey uphill worthwhile. Explore the complex neighborhood which has a church, cloisters, a cemetery, and very cute little homes.
