Sir Hotels opens Sir Joan, Ibiza – an urban oasis on the legendary Spanish island
38 luxury maritime-inspired guest rooms and suites and popular Amsterdam-based Japanese restaurant, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar.
July 2017: The first Spanish property for the Sir Hotels is prominently located in the centre of Ibiza, overlooking the port and the old town. Consisting of 38 rooms and suites, including two penthouses and on the ground floor, a pool, cabanas, as well as two restaurants and a bar, the hotel is open throughout the year. The top floor penthouse suites, boast 80m2 wraparound terraces with 360 degree views of Ibiza, outdoor seating, a private cabana and an open-air kitchen. Penthouse guests can enjoy a private IZAKAYA dining experience with one of the restaurants chefs.
“As with all Sir Hotels, it is essential that Sir Joan reflects the ethos of the surrounding area. We were inspired by the marina, the ocean, but also by the people on the island. By combining contemporary design with nostalgic details, we aim to create a unique urban oasis at the heart of the world-famous island.” Liran Wizman, owner and founder of Sir Hotels.
The interiors are designed by award-winning architects and interior designers Baranowitz + Kronenberg, and pay homage to yacht-living and the ocean. Barcelona-based Architects Ribas & Ribas have created a unique and contemporary checkered façade in the heart of the island, just steps away from famous clubs such as Pacha and Lio. The property boasts a collection of curated artworks featuring work from Spanish art legend Joan Hernandez Pijuan, and Carlos Irijalba Inercia, alongside photographs from Ibiza-based photographer Landry A.
The ground floor public area evokes a ‘members only’ social club. Inside, vertical corrugated steel bars line up along the interior walls, resonating with naval ropes and the erosion of metal by the sea, while the outside area boasts a triangular pool, heated throughout the winter season, lined with cabanas and lounge chairs.
In the public space, the outside blends into the inside, and is home to one of the property’s two restaurants, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, set to be the island’s next hotspot. Originating in Amsterdam, the iconic restaurant offers guests and locals a culinary experience of contemporary Japanese cuisine fused with Peruvian flavours.
The second restaurant, THE BUTCHER, is an award-winning, high end burger bar which is accessed through a separate entrance. The popular Amsterdam eatery will be open throughout the night, ideal for the island’s late-night revellers.
Both restaurants are founded and owned by Yossi Eliyahoo and Liran Wizman of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP.
Guests of Sir Joan have the opportunity to connect with the local culture through Sir Experiences, a new program that consists of a collection of curated activities inspired by the lifestyle of Ibizan residents. Lead by locals who specialise in extraordinary excursions, the options range from horseback riding on secluded paths on the north of the island, moonlight adventures to caves and lagoons, make your own ceramics with a local ceramicist (whose pieces you can find in the rooms), and even a magnetic meditation and private yoga lesson overlooking the sunset from the Benirrás Beach (a local favourite).
