Located in Santa Eulalia, Ibizazen is an 18th century former small farm house which has been meticulously restored in and converted into a small private luxury boutique hotel, offering comfortable and modern accommodations with a warm bohemian touch.

The name ‘Ibizazen’ comes from ‘Ibiza’ on the one hand and ‘Zazen’ on the other hand. The aim of the ‘Zazen’ state of mind is ‘just sitting’. Letting words, ideas, images and thoughts pass by without actually getting involved in them. A big red Buddha greets you at the door and there’s an eclectic mix of modern art along with recycled artefacts and funky furniture. This is the place to retreat in tranquil surroundings and spend your days lying on one of the colourful and comfy Balinese day beds. The Asian inspired rooms come with kimino robes to lounge around in which beats your average white dressing gown.

This is a hotel that will keep you on the health and wellbeing track. There is a spa that offers massages, body and facial treatments and complimentary yoga classes offered in the morning.
