Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay - The Spa Man

Review: Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, Ibiza

The Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay has firmly established itself as the right place to stay in Talamanca, Ibiza.  It’s perfectly positioned to make the most of views across the sea on one side and towards a protected nature reserve on the other. This open plan style is bright and breezy and lends itself perfectly to island life and instantly creates a sense of place. The view to Ibiza Bay on a sunny day is hard to beat and from reception you look across the main pool, sun loungers and then the azure blue sea beyond. It’s the beating heart of the hotel with lots of guests who want to see and be seen. It’s also the site of the Nobu restaurant. It really comes alive at night. Near the entrance is Celicioso – a cool cafe serving great coffee and gluten free cakes and light bites. The banana cake is a must. Throughout the hotel you will find simple lines with white walls and exposed timber punctuated with comfy sofas layered with coastal blue cushions. …

Review: Kempinski Hotel Bahía, Spain

THE HOTEL: Making the most of its unique position in the Costa del Sol, the Kempinski Hotel Bahía is bathed in sunshine (about 320 days a year) and provides everything you need for a relaxing escape. Perfect for a week-long stay or a weekend break off season, each of the rooms and suites has a sea view looking across the Mediterranean.  Around an hour from Malaga, you bypass the notorious resorts and in and instant you are in your very own oasis. The five star hotel is decorated with earthy terracotta tones, which contrasts perfectly with the manicured gardens and palm trees. Inside the décor combines a muted yellow palette and touches of orange. It’s light and airy take on the Andalusian style. In keeping with Kempinski values, the hotel staff were warm, welcoming and impeccable. Art abounds though the hotel with many works by Stefan Szczesny (one of which came home with me). There are three restaurants and three bars, all offering a great selection of Spanish food and seafood. For the more active …
