Ibiza Love: Fine luxury at the 7Pines Resort

What: 7Pines Resort
Where: Cala Tarida, Ibiza, Spain


Welcome to 7Pines Resort – the new luxury hotel in Ibiza and Member of “The Leading Hotels of the World”

By this time, one could think that my favorite island Ibiza doesn’t have anything surprising or really new to offer. Far from it. Opened in early June in Ibiza, 7Pines Resort is a 56,000-square-meter deluxe hotel with 186 suites, oceanfront restaurants and bars, infinity and lagoon pools, a 1,500-square-foot spa, its own Pershing yacht and secret grotto. Located in the southwest of the Balearic island, between Cala Tarida and Cala Comte.


The lobby of the 7Pines Resort welcomes the arriving guest with views of the pool and sea. By the way, checking in here is short and relaxed – and comfortable while sitting down

My first encounter with 7Pines Resort is already two years back. At that time, there was just an idea of what the 5.5-acre site would become once. General Manager Markus Lück gave me a small tour and showed with great enthusiasm, what everything would look like in the future. Construction delays on objects of this size are nothing out of the ordinary – especially not in Spain – so it was not surprising that the official opening in early June had to be rather improvised.

However, the gigantic opening party on the evening of June 2nd ran as planned. More than 600 invited guests strolled the red carpet and were impressed by various show acts, live music and light shows. The evening dresses of the ladies fluttered in the light breeze, while the iced champagne sparkled in the glasses. And the kitchen showed its future culinary standard with its offered food. When world-class DJ Fritz Kalkbrenner was at the turntables later in the evening, there was no holding back. What an impressive evening.

The 7Pines Resort is part of the Düsseldorf investment group 12.18., which, apart from various hotel projects, also operate in five-star houses such as “Schloss Fleesensee” in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. With “Hotel Stadt Hamburg” on the North Sea island of Sylt, another hotel in the luxury segment was added this summer. It takes a great deal of entrepreneurial courage to invest millions in a project like the 7Pines Resort, which caters to a pampered clientele who knows everything and has seen it all. Especially in Ibiza. But as an investor you also need a vision. And who visits the 7Pines Resort, can feel the motivation of its operators.

What I particularly like about the 7Pines Resort is the generosity of the entire resort. There is room, nothing is tight. There are multiple retreat areas and privacy. The 186 suites (48 to 124 square meters) are spacious and equipped with living room and bedroom (s) in Ibizan style and Mediterranean colors. Some have their own garden and private pool. There is a kitchenette for the preparation of tea and coffee and a wine fridge with champagne, wines, soft drinks, chips and co, which is replenished daily. Even a mini-freezer was thought of, which holds ready ice cubes and cooling sleeve. Friends of the longdrink find everything necessary for its preparation. 24/7 room service is self-evident, as well as the fresh fruit, which is delivered daily on the electric bikes in retro look. In the bathrooms are plenty of towels and bathrobes, Molton Brown products and a XXL rain shower.

Speaking of space: the 1,500-square-meter spa is the absolute doozy at the 7Pines Resort (more about it soon on Mystylery) and an architectural masterpiece – the focus is always on the look outside. I cannot think of any other luxury resort on the island that offers me this phenomenal, 180 degree view of the sea and the rock Es Vedrà both in yoga, as on the treadmill or the massage table. The 7Pines Resort aims to welcome and pamper its guests throughout the year. Even in the winter months, when Ibiza is still around 18 degrees Celsius. And even on cooler days, there is nothing more wonderful than sweating in the sauna after a long beach walk.


View of the mystic rock Es Vedrà

I quickly found my favorite spot in the hotel. A lounger by the infinity pool overlooking the rock Es Vedrà. For hours I could hang out here, dream and enjoy the view. This rock has something magical and captivates me. Especially at the blue hour and low sun. And the sunsets are – thanks to the southwest location of 7Pines Resort – the best on the island. Here the sun hovers like a huge, red balloon in the sky, becomes one with the horizon and makes the sky glow. Sometimes a green flash is created for a brief moment. Anyone who sees this may wish for something. BvH

Info Pure Seven Spa:

The 1,500 square meter Pure Seven Spa was built by Balmea. The walls are decorated with floor-to-ceiling ornaments made of Bisazza mosaics. In addition to a Finnish sauna, the guest also has a steam bath, bio sauna and hamman. After the sauna, two degrees cold water from the mist shower ensures a little cooling. The Pure Seven Spa and saunas can also be booked and used by external guests.

My suite:


…overlooking the sea from my own balcony. Bright colors were used for the design of the suites, some of which have fireplaces and all of them love to detail


On the convenient sofas you can relax comfortably on ikat pillows in shades of green and blue. Forget the beach bag? No problem. It is part of the 7Pines Resort’s facilities


Fancy a gin and tonic? The ingredients I find in the kitchenette


Comfort XXL: On the box bed of course with several pillows


Good night at 7Pines Resort: I cannot say no to the delicious macarons as a little bedtime treat

Small tour to the 7Pines:


The restaurant “The View” offers a breakfast buffet until noon which leaves nothing to be desired. My favorite: home-made yoghurt with fresh berries, passion fruit and grated coconut


The open-plan lobby at 7Pines Resort is decorated in natural materials such as wood, stone and leather


Following the Ibizan architecture, the facades of the 55 houses of the five-star hotel in total shine in a light sandstone tone. The maxims of 7Pines Resort are maximum comfort, privacy and space


The 44-meter long lagoon pool is ideal for families with children due to the gently sloping water inlet


Spa and Gym from the outside


Om with yoga teacher Sara: I’m thrilled, the 7Pines Resort offers daily yoga and pilates classes as well as personal training


The secret grotto: Like the movie backdrop of a pirate adventure

My favorite spot:


My favorite spot is the 55 meter long and 14 meter wide infinity pool. Pleasant: The subtle music in the background without annoying, deafening beats


Lunch by the pool with probably the most delicious Cesars salad ever. With a peach smoothie…


Infinity pool and sky radiate to the bet. By the way: If you want to swim in the sea and feel like spending a day at the beach, it’s just a few minutes drive away, for example, on the Cala Comte

The architects of Arditecnica from Madrid skillfully put the unique view at the center of the 7Pines Resort’s planning

The culinary:


First, I’ll have an aperitif at the Pershing Bar…


…then to the restaurant “The View” for an à la carte dinner. The view is unbeatable, right?


Chef Bijendra creates European dishes with a Korean touch here. The amuse-gueule with caviar …


…is followed by cannelloni poached Norwegian king crab, red shrimp and avocado


Then I decide for the Wild Red Snapper. Yummy!


From the restaurants “The View” and “Cone Club” my gaze falls on the romantic rock of Es Vedrà and the turquoise Mediterranean Sea

Ship ahoy! The 25-meter Pershing Yacht is available to 7Pines Resort guests for day trips and can also be hired for multi-day tours


Adios 7Pines! I’ll be back. Most certainly…
