Six Senses Ibiza: when food is the experience

Six Senses Ibiza: when food is the experience

Six Senses Ibiza is in north-eastern Ibiza, a few kilometres from Sant Joan, and lies by the turquoise waters of the Ibizan coast. Just like other hotels owned by the chain around the world, it offers guests an experience based on wellbeing and health. 

The resort has a zero single-use plastic policy (not even the toothbrushes or shower caps are made of plastic), it bottles its own water to avoid using single-use bottles and reduce the carbon footprint of transporting bottled water, and supplies its restaurants with local, seasonal produce as far as possible. In fact, vegetables used in the restaurants at Six Senses Ibiza come from The Farm, its own organic kitchen garden in neighbouring Santa Gertrudis.

Everything at Six Senses Ibiza aims to provide maximum pleasure through healthy lifestyle practices: peace, tranquillity and harmony reign at a resort with panoramic sea views, where natural colours and materials are the order of the day. Guests can enjoy yoga classes, a spectacular infinity pool, impressive spa, the new RoseBar longevity program and three restaurants, North, The Beach Caves and The Orchard, where the food ethos is that it must be both good and healthy – just a few reasons that make this resort in Cala Xarraca Bay unique.

North by Eyal Shani

This is the flagship restaurant at Six Senses Ibiza and its executive chef is none other than iconic television personality Eyal Shani (a judge on MasterChef Israel). Shani is one of Israel’s greatest chefs and has restaurants around the world; his self-taught, honest, direct cooking with deep Mediterranean roots has won him fans across every continent.

Shani’s style is expressed in a menu based on vegetable dishes made with seasonal ingredients that are perfect for sharing, and locally sourced fish and seafood. Meat dishes on the North menu include fabulous cuts that are obtained from strictly certified free-range animals. In short, the menu at North delights diners with the flavours of the Mediterranean Middle East on a journey across the chef’s homeland of Israel.

The Beach Caves

The Beach Caves is right on the waterfront. Eclectic and sophisticated, it represents the cultures of the world, united through the unique energy of Ibiza. The restaurant pays tribute to local produce and seasonal ingredients – the menu has Latin American and Oriental influences, with flavours from Peru, Mexico and Japan. The result is exuberant dishes such as mouth-watering tiraditos, ceviches, lobster makis, crispy seafood tempuras, robata-style barbecues and the best fish from the Ibizan coast. 

The Beach Caves is also a live music venue and guests can enjoy after-dinner drinks at elegant Bar Secreto; special mention should be made of the delicious cocktails at this unique spot in Ibiza where guests can enjoy a vibrant, bohemian vibe in summer. Gatherings of 10 to 14 people can book the Chef’s Table. And this magical experience is set to a backdrop of gorgeous sunsets with an excellent wine cellar at your disposal.

 

The Orchard

The Orchard is an elegant yet casual Italian restaurant with a typically Ibizan setting amid flowers and fruit trees. It serves fresh fish and seafood, excellent local meat and vegetables from its own kitchen garden, and everything is cooked live ‘a la grigliata’ – on a typical Italian grill. Opulent dishes to share that are finished at the table bring this vibrant Italian trattoria to life. And, it goes without saying, diners can enjoy the finest wines from Tuscany and Piedmont, plus a selection of cocktails inspired by Italy.
