Big news from Spain today: Palladium Hotel Group, formerly Fiesta Hotel Group, has announced the opening of a new complex in Ibiza, replacing the existing Fiesta Playa d’en Bossa with The Ushuaïa Tower, an eight-floor property that forms part of an expansion project to extend the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel.
The Ushuaïa Tower, located directly next door to the existing Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, has been developed by Palladium Hotel Group in direct response to the increasing demand for premium style accommodation, particularly since the opening of Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel in 2011.
The new Ushuaïa complex will comprise two buildings: The Ushuaïa Club (currently known as Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel) and The Ushuaïa Tower, scheduled to open in June 2013. The Ushuaïa Tower guests will have full access to all the services of The Ushuaïa Club.
The Tower will have 181 suites, complimenting the existing 236 rooms. The rooms and suites will be divided into 10 categories and decorated with a range of natural materials mixed with high-tech functionality. All the new suites come with their own exterior terrace and Jacuzzi and have an innovative LED system, enabling guests to change the room lighting according to their mood, as well as plug-in aromatherapy. Some of the more unusual suites include ‘The Fashion Victim Suite,’ with a futuristic circular designed bed created exclusively for Ushuaïa; ‘The Anything Can Happen Suite’ with a 50 inch flat screen TV and a pillow and sheet menu; and ‘The I’m On Top of the World,’ an exclusive room that sprawls out over 545 square feet on the eighth floor, with a large living area, two bathrooms, a dressing room, butler service, private check-in, airport transfers and a special treatment for two at the Ushuaïa spa.
The Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel complex will offer a range of restaurant options, including the already established Minami, a renowned Japanese restaurant on the island, and the Ushuaïa Beach Club which serves up a range of fresh fish, shellfish and Mediterranean cuisine, twinned with an enviable cocktail menu and wine list. The Last Call Bar will be located on the ground floor of The Ushuaïa Tower and will offer an extensive cocktail menu at any time of day.
The new infinity pool at The Ushuaïa Tower will look directly out to sea and will have a new restaurant/bar aptly called Infinity with two floors so that guests can enjoy drinks and light meals either in the pool or on the beach.
