While Ibiza’s beaches are undeniably breathtaking, away from the azure waters and dramatic coastline the island’s countryside is just as magical. A mix of forest-covered mountains and flowering fields, locally known as ‘el campo’, it oozes tranquillity and charm. Boutique hotel and spa Ca Na Xica is making the most of the island’s stunning nature by offering not only a peaceful place to lay your head, but also a wellness haven to recharge your senses and a sophisticated dining experience with show-stopping vistas. The chic abode and its onsite restaurant Salvia are reopening their doors this month, on April 19th, for another successful season on the White Isle.
Situated just outside of the small village of San Miguel in the North of the island, and only a short drive from the beaches of Cala Benirras and Port de San Miguel, the authentic Ibicencan main building lies within sprawling grounds filled with aromatic scents from the surrounding herbs and vegetable patches. Olive trees that are thousands of years old break through the red earth, while the eye-catching turquoise statement pool at the heart of the property beckons you to jump in for a dip. In total, this blissful countryside oasis features 20 rooms, which are made up of six stylish rooms located in the main house and two annexe buildings, as well as 14 Premier Suites.
Each room has its own character, combining the traditional structures of the Mediterranean architecture with modern simplicity and luxurious amenities for your utmost comfort. Whichever accommodation option you choose, each features beautiful views over the grounds and the surrounding nature, with all rooms kitted out with spacious beds, cosmetic products from Ibiza, slippers and bath robes, air-conditioning and central heating, a minibar, security box, direct phone and satellite TV, with WiFi accessible from the private terraces.
Guests also automatically gain complimentary access to Ca Na Xica’s onsite spa, which invites you to be pampered with massages, beauty treatments or private wellness classes. From a thorough kneading to facials, body peelings, mani-pedis and much more, you will feel like a new person when you return from your bubble of bliss. Alternatively, you can simply set up camp on a sunlounger by the pool and enjoy the dedicated bar service while you relax in the peaceful gardens.
Whether you are choosing Ca Na Xica as your base on the island or you simply want to experience a slice of this rural paradise, the chic onsite restaurant Salvia Ibiza welcomes diners from all over the island. The elegant outdoor eatery boasts an extensive cocktail menu, split into categories dedicated to a certain time of the day or the flavours it features, and we highly recommend the signature Salvia concoction made with Cava Brut Nature, Williams pear eau-de-vie, lemon and sage leaves, and comes with a test tube containing lemonade to pour into the potent beverage should you wish to soften the impact.
Fusing authentic Mediterranean dishes with contemporary international touches, the kitchen team only works with ingredients of the highest quality and uses local suppliers as well as produce from its own fields and orchards where possible to guarantee the utmost freshness. Whether it is just for one evening or your whole holiday, discover ‘campo chic’ at Ca Na Xica and Salvia this summer.
