Touch down Eivissa. A couple of weeks ago, BLASS editors spent a few days in ‘La Isla Bonita’ for the very first time. Final destination: the iconic Me Ibiza, by Mélia Hotels, located in the quiet shores of S’Argamassa, with pristine waters just a step away from the property. Could we be any more excited? (Chandler says hi) We doubt it.

The Me Ibiza Hotel was renovated back in 2014 to offer its visitors a full on luxurious experience that goes from Mediterranean laid back interiors to unbeatable facilities and premium cuisine. The hotel has around 200 rooms spread over three different floors with a wide range of services. The ice of the cake – a few luxury suites with private infinity pools overlooking the sea.

The overall feeling you get when visiting the property for the first time is an elegant approach of the traditional Balearic summer we all have heard about. You will still be able to reach the cobblestone streets of Ibiza village – 20 minutes away from the location – but you’re headquarters will be the turquoise waters of Santa Eulalia, a much quieter side of the island.

The hotel works very well with the open space concept, with most of its rooms and facilities oriented towards the sea and the beautiful surroundings. Being a summer hotel, it’s still very much boutique and petite so it also has stunning architectural lines, with glass balconies and predominant white / blue combinations throughout the spaces.

Sunsets at Radio rooftop bar

We were installed in room 321 and the team kindly welcomed us with some local fruits and fresh champagne. We toasted to the splendid views of the blue bay and got some rest in one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever tried. Then, it was time to organize our luggages and set up our walk-in wardrobe for our days on the island. We hop on the balcony one last time to admire the Mediterranean pine trees and the shiny sparkles coming from the calmed sea though.

Days at ME began early in the morning. Alarms were set at 7 am to hit the gym (prior reservation due to Covid situation) and then take a quick shower. Breakfasts were served on the first floor, just right by the pool. The food was impeccable and so varied you could easily get lost in the buffet. From freshly pressed juices to all sorts of breads and a chance to ask the chef for waffles, pancakes and everything in between. Also, a premium selection of pastries and healthier options. Simply, the best possible way to start a day.

We were fortunate to enjoy some really warm and sunny days. The surroundings of the hotel are also not to be missed: Nikki beach is literally linked to the right side of the property, the well known Ibiza’s Hippy Market is a walk away and there are many little calas ready to be enjoyed. The coast is painted with some boats here and there which makes the scenery even more picturesque.

The hotel has three different restaurant options and we were able to tick off the list two of them in our time there: Bianco Mare and Radio ME. We had a delicious italian lunch at Bianco Mare: Pappardelle and Tortellini, please. We didn’t have space for dessert, but it sure looked as exquisite.

Saying bye to a day here

However, what we consider the true gem of the property is its 360 Radio Rooftop. There’s a chance to book a ‘Bali’ bed and gift yourself a glass of Veuve Clicquot while overlooking the bay. We’re sure we’ll remember the late dips in the infinity pool when the cold arrives in a few months. Radio also offers a restaurant service with a very Mediterranean approach. We spent our last dinner on the island enjoying some wonderful seafood, white wine and sweet treats under the moonlight.

Me Ibiza has a well-deserved place in the select ‘Leading Hotels of the World’ and we can now confirm why. It’s a destination for a laid-back luxury getaway, for a different approach to a quieter Ibiza and for a visitor that appreciates the attention to detail. We cannot thank the Lycland, Mélia and Aura team enough for the beautiful experience but also for the constant help and assistance, with a special mention to the ever-smiley Radio team. Ibiza, let’s meet again soon!
