The Balearic island of Ibiza has been a popular holiday destination since ancient times, when it was a favoured destination for Phonecian, Carthagian and Roman soldiers in need of some rest & relaxation after a long campaign.
More recently the island’s beautiful scenery and the relaxed and tolerant attitude of the locals towards outsiders attracted artists and hippies during the 60s and 70s who created a scene centered around performing arts, dance, yoga and alternative lifestyles which persists to this day.
The choice of luxury accommodation in Ibiza has grown steadily over during recent years.

Ibiza is also famously the place where the global explosion of electronic dance music began, when British DJs first encountered US house music being played by DJ Alfredo at Amnesia and recreated their own version of the sound back home in London. The rest is, as they say, history and as dance music has conquered the world, Ibiza has become the top global destination for clubbers who come in droves every summer to hear superstar DJs playing at famous clubs such as Pacha, Space and of course Amnesia which is still going strong after over 30 years.
As dance music has gone mainstream and attracted an increasingly affluent crowd to the island, Ibiza has moved upmarket and stylish bars, beach clubs and restaurants have opened up in increasing numbers.
In parallel with the evolution of the alternative and dance music scenes, Ibiza has become increasingly popular as a more mainstream holiday destination, a trend which has been actively encouraged by the local government in their desire to shake off the island’s reputation as a destination for young partygoers and cultivate a more family-friendly image.
