Ibiza Town’s famous city centre Hotel Montesol will be the first hotel in Spain opened under the ‘Curio’ brand by the Hilton Group. It will open this summer as the ‘Gran Hotel Montesol Ibiza’ and have 33 rooms open all year round and will mark Hilton Hotels’ debut on the island,
The Curio brand offers a select number of hotels in destinations such as Hamburg, Reykjavik, London, Paris and Lagos which are handpicked for their character and personality. The group hope to have 80 Curio hotels up and running this year.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President of Business Development for EMEA Hilton Worldwide, explained “Ibiza is the ideal place to open the 1st Curio hotel in Spain because of it’s reputation as a luxury destination and is recognised as one of the most visited and popular destinations of Spain”.
The Montesol, founded in 1933, was the first hotel built in Ibiza and was used as military headquarters during the Spanish Civil War. The building is recognised as a place of cultural interest by the Spanish Ministry of Culture with its characteristic yellow neoclassical and white facade which will remain in the new design.
