A Five-Star Escape From the Madness on the Shores of Ibiza

First, You Excessively Party. Then, You Excessively Relax.

“Summer in Ibiza.”

Just saying those three words conjures up images of wild beach parties, body paint and many, many strobe lights.

It’s great. Also, exhausting.

But what if—and this is a not-so-big “if”—you can get the craziness you so seek from a trip to Ibiza, without sacrificing anything in the way of pampering, Japanese fusion food and private jacuzzis?

Here to answer that hypothetical is Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, a lavish, white-sandy refuge a short while away from the madness, taking reservations now for June 30.

It’s likely you’ll have a pretty packed boat/beach/club schedule. But you’ll need rest, too.

So try to make time for outdoor cabana catnaps and laid-back seaside dinners at Chambao, involving fresh Mediterranean fish and sangria. A personalized spa day and rejuvenating juice at the hotel’s café would also serve you well. Especially after that all-night rave...

Now, if you haven’t gotten your fill around Marina Botafoch—which... hard to imagine—keep the party going at the pool bar and the famed eponymous Japanese fusion restaurant, where they do strong cocktails and an exquisite miso black cod.

Afterward, retire to your suite. Open the floor-to-ceiling windows. Maybe take a dip in your jacuzzi. Then, go to sleep, and do it all over again the next day.

But, please, first go to sleep.
