Thankfifi - Hacienda Na Xamena, Ibiza

When you check into your room and the view looks like this it kinda takes your breath away…

Last weekend we hopped over to Ibiza for a few days to visit some friends but before we got to the friend bit we took a sneaky 24 hours of us time at the Hacienda Na Xamena.  A quick Pinterest ‘Ibiza hotel’ search had revealed a slew of jaw dropping shots from this place and I can assure you, this is no Pinterest dupe, this place is every bit as beautiful as the online picture paints.

First of all there’s that view.  If ever you were not quite sure about Ibiza just take a moment to look up there at that shot because that’s the view that made me smile from ear to ear for 24 hours.  I lay on loungers, took long baths, woke up at sunrise, relaxed on balconies, floated in jacuzzi pools and enjoyed sunset drinks all the while looking at this…

As if that wasn’t enough, the hotel really does match its setting.  Every inch is just blissful and positioned to face that view.  Real olive trees pop out from every terrace (definitely don’t be tempted to taste one of said olives though – 100% do not do it my friends – I learned the hard way).  The rooms are like a minimal, white, Spanish dream that belong on the pages of Elle Deco and then there’s that bath tub…  right by the picture window.  Sometimes, when the husband is feeling especially kind, he’ll let me sleep with the blinds open and this was one of those places… because falling asleep and waking up to that view and the colours of the edge of the sun is something you just have to see.

The food was delightful – I’ve never eaten so much cheese and ham as I did on this trip (and I assure you I would never ever order cheese and ham at home, but Ibizan cheese and ham is on another level).  Dinner was not only delicious but also a reminder of how out of touch I am with modern music – the husband ‘It’s Avicii (sitting at the next table)’, me ‘Ceviche is a kind of raw fish’, the husband, ‘No… it’s AVICII, the DJ’.  Ohhh.

I have to make mention of the spa but just a quick one as I’m saving that for my ‘Ibiza in 3 days post’ because it has to be one of the top things to do and the most spectacular way to enjoy, you guessed it, that view.

On a quick fashion note, October seems to be an excellent time to pick up super cheap holiday pieces – hello £12.50 playsuit, you’ll do very nicely…

    Wow that place is absolutely sensationally stunning. Hope you had a lovely holiday

    PS: I listen to Aviici and I’d have no idea what he looked like either. I know he’s like 26, no idea otherwise.

    Hi Wendy
    I love this play suit (and your style generally!) but it’s not available in my size. Have you got any other suggestions? Thanks!
