While Ibiza may be well known for its party-hard reputation, the home of hedonism is polishing its halo. The White Island has become a haven for healthy hedonists who are in search of balance. Home to DJ’s, shamans and yogis alike, it’s a cocktail of wellness and debauchery. We’ve rounded up a medley of events for whatever your mood, whether that be a night of sins at Ushuaia, or, a 7am Barry’s session that leaves you feeling like a saint. Read on for a rundown of the best Ibiza hotels for healthy hedonists…
Sweat it out at Barry’s Bootcamp Ibiza
This summer, Barry’s Bootcamp, the original strength and cardio interval training workout, is heading to Ibiza, bringing the world’s best workout to Destino Pacha Resort for a 6-week residency launching on 23rd July. Led by its world class UK instructors, there will be daily classes, from HIIT to strength training. Guests will receive exclusive perks including a special room rate at the resort and complimentary access to the hotel’s Day Club, alongside invitations to a myriad of events and parties to celebrate this exciting partnership. For those looking to swap poolside cocktails for shakes, award-winning lifestyle brand Hermosa, the protein powder of choice for Barry’s UK since 2014, will also be residing at Destino Pacha with a pop-up Fuel Bar to aid recovery post workout.
Health and Hedonism at Pikes
Host of Freddy Mercury’s lavish 41st birthday party and location of the iconic music video of Club Tropicana, Pikes is an iconic Ibizan institution, steeped in rock’n’roll history. Taking centre stage this year is the Pikes Presents series, which will see Metalheadz head-honcho Goldie lead proceedings in June, followed by Fatboy Slim in early August. We also love the look of OuShe, a celebration of raw feminine energy all night long. World-renowned Australian group, The Avalanches, will bring the series to a close later that month, with a seldom-seen Pikes-exclusive DJ set. Whether you’re looking for late night dancing, blissful afternoons by the pool, cocktails in the early evening sun or stand-up comedy nights, Pikes is filled with music, mischief and magic.

Spa & Wellness at the Six Senses Ibiza
Find peace within the party island at the Six Senses, with expert-led retreats, workshops, programmes and spa treatments available. Reverse the nights of revelry with cryotherapy, yogic cleanses and saunas. Our favourite treatment is the ‘after party detox’ – a recipe for recovery! Awaken your senses with a tangy citrus body scrub, followed by a stimulating, full body massage paying special attention to tired dancing feet. This energizing treatment is completed with a soothing facial massage using cool gua sha tools to reveal a fresh, radiant complexion. Hangover be gone!

Spirituality and Self-discovery with Cosmic Pineapple Events
Cosmic Pineapple is a bridge of connection – to the self, the other and planet earth. The unique mini-festival style events, now in their seventh season at Pikes, are a weaving of spirituality and self-discovery, coming together in the energy of the heart, fun, magic and open curiosity. A charity-based company, the ethos is based on aspects of yogic philosophy – mainly Karma Yoga (selfless service) and Bhakti Yoga (devotion) – offering up the ‘practice’ inside to a higher cause than just ourselves. This summer, there will be a collection of cosmic workshops, talks and events to enjoy. From tantra and womb healing, to psychic readings and ecstatic dance, embrace your inner woo woo wellness warrior.

Bike or Hike around Formentera

Magic and Mysticism at Es Vedra

Cosmic Pineapple will be setting sail to Es Vedra throughout the summer, where they will anchor and hold a cacao ceremony and crystal sound healing meditations, whilst in the direct energy of this legendary site. Trips will be taking place on the following dates: May 31st, June 20th, September 21st and October 2nd.
