I’m not one for taking lots of pictures whilst on holiday as I find it to be quite a bore, but I thought that it’d be nice to do a photo montage of my holiday in Ibiza for your viewing pleasure. So here it is! I hope you enjoy 🙂
We dined at the fabulous Montauk, a brand spanking new steak restaurant that has just opened up in Ushuaia. We were given the choice of a selection of 3 knives, one from Spain, which was beautiful with a white marbled handle, one from Japan (needless to say the sharpest of the 3), and one from the UK: Twas quite plain. I went for the white marbled knife from Spain.
For dinner I had a beautifully cooked fillet steak and lobster with triple cooked chips. The blue cheese sauce (that I stole from my boyfriend as I hadn’t ordered any!) was particularly good. The meal was on the pricey side, but the service and the food was of a very high standard therefore I felt the prices were justifiable. Also, the décor in there was very nice indeed.

Afterwards, we partied at the infamous Ushuaia Beach Hotel. I never thought a party could top the party I went to at Ushuaia the year before as it was amazing beyond words, but it did. It never ceases to amaze me just how good parties at Ushuaia are. Carl Cox and Pete Tong were there with the sound, and the quality of the sound was so good you could feel the music pulsating through every orifice of your body. The uniquely attired performers on stage done everything from silks, to hoops to walking on stilts, and there were lights, fireworks, lasers, the whole caboodle if dancing wasn’t your thing. What a night. It felt like the best party on earth, and it probably was.

In terms of restaurants, Ibiza has some truly great ones, and we went to the Thai restaurant Bambuddah Grove whilst we were there, which is a favourite of my boyfriend and I. It was the first time my sister and cousin had been to Ibiza so we took them there knowing that they would love it. And they did. My cocktail, named Orgasmic Delight, was very aptly named. It had: Vanilla Vodka, Passion Fruit, Vanilla Syrup and Passoa in it. Deeeelish! For my main I ordered my favourite: Black Cod.

Es Vive was a hotel that we looked into staying at whilst we were searching for accommodation in Ibiza and we were very impressed by it’s styling and location. Unfortunately we didn’t get to stay there as it was VERY expensive and we went in high season but we did at least get to dine there, and have a little look around too. We also met the owner who was a fellow Englishman, and seemed very nice and down to earth, he was talking about owning the hotel, living in Ibiza, and his thoughts about all the other luxury hotels in Playa D’en Bossa. Some of them you have to have a pretty penny to even THINK about staying in.

Ibiza Old Town is where a little bit of history still lives. A lot of Ibiza has been modernised to make room for it’s reputation as the “party island of the world”, and thus a lot of it’s oldy worldy feel has been lost, but in Ibiza Town it’s still very rich in Ibizan culture and history. And it’s really quite lovely. Cobbled streets and old white stone buildings, coupled with the sparkling Mediterranean sea and mountains abound. A lot of people park there luxury super yaughts in this part of town too, and if you go down to the docks you can have a sneaky peak at some of them.

Las Salinas Beach
Stunningly beautiful: the sea was crystal clear, warm and very clean! I was in heaven on that beach and did not wish to leave. Ever!
The Jockey Club, Las Salinas
On Salinas Beach there was a beach restaurant called the Jockey Club. It’s been going for 20 years and they go by the slogan: “This is the place!” and it really was the place, it really was. Overlooking the beautiful beach, with a live DJ, refreshing, ice cold drinks and amazing food, I could see why it was popular. We had to wait 45 minutes for a table there.
I ate an amazing strawberry and goats cheese salad, which was so fresh, and so good that I almost shed a tear (I truly did). What a magical place.
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed my photo montage of my latest holiday. I hope to jet off on a Caribbean cruise for my next one but we’ll have to wait and see.
