May 2018: Sir Joan, the first Spanish property for Sir Hotels, enjoys its first full summer season this year in the centre of the island. The fifth Sir Hotel to open since 2013, Sir Joan consists of 38 rooms and suites, including two penthouses, a pool, cabanas, two restaurants and a bar.  Each top floor penthouse suite boasts a terrace with 360 degree views of the old city of Ibiza, outdoor seating, a private cabana and an open-air kitchen. Penthouse guests can also enjoy a private IZAKAYA dining experience with one of the restaurants chefs.

The interiors of Sir Joan are designed by award-winning architects and interior designers Baranowitz + Kronenberg, and pay homage to yacht-living and the ocean. Barcelona-based Architects Ribas & Ribas have created a unique and contemporary checkered façade in the heart of the island, just steps away from famous clubs such as Pacha and Lio. The property boasts a collection of curated artworks featuring work from Spanish art legend Joan Hernández Pijuan and Carlos Irijalba, alongside photographs from Ibiza-based photographer Landry A.

The ground floor public areas evoke a ‘members only’ social club. Inside, vertical corrugated steel bars line up along the interior walls, resonating with naval ropes and the erosion of metal by the sea, while the outside area boasts a triangular pool, heated throughout the winter season and lined with cabanas and lounge chairs.

The public space blends the outside into the inside, and is home to one of the property’s two restaurants, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, the island’s newest hotspot. Originating in Amsterdam, the iconic restaurant offers guests and locals a culinary experience of contemporary Japanese cuisine fused with Peruvian flavors.

The second restaurant, THE BUTCHER, is an award-winning, high end burger bar that is accessed through a separate entrance. The popular Amsterdam eatery will be open throughout the night, ideal for the island’s late-night revellers. Both restaurants are founded and owned by Yossi Eliyahoo and Liran Wizman of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP.

Sir Explore
Launching in May, guests of Sir Joan have the opportunity to connect with the local culture through Sir Explore, a new program of curated activities inspired by the lifestyle of Ibizan residents. Lead by locals who specialize in extraordinary excursions, the options range from wandering ancient ruins with a local historian, making your own ceramics in the hillside with a local ceramicist and even a private yoga lesson overlooking the sunset from a stunning hidden beach.
