More 4 & 5 star hotels for San Antonio

The ‘old’ Piscis Park and Tanit

More positive news for San Antonio as 2 new major hotel projects have been unveiled.

Firstly the Palladium Hotel Group, which counts Ushuaia Beach Hotel and Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza amongst its portfolio, has announced that their new 5 star hotel located in Cala Gracio will be called the TRS Ibiza Hotel and will be open in time for next summer. The fully refurbished luxury hotel is where the Hotel Tanit used to be in “privileged area for exceptional sunsets”.

The hotel will have a total of 378 suites and will be the first hotel in Europe under the exclusive TRS brand with the group saying “the hotel will be a revolution in terms of luxury and will be the first hotel on the island to offer a premium all-inclusive service in an adults only environment” with “an exclusive butler service, unprecedented on the island.” It will also have 3 a la carte restaurants, 5 bars and an exclusive spa and wellness centre.

Meanwhile Vibra Hotels (formerly Playasol Group) has resumed their extensive refurbishment of the landmark Piscis Park hotel opposite the Egg roundabout in central San Antonio. Work has resumed with the demolition of the interior and necessary structural works. The group say it is an “ambitious” project due to its size and the increase from a 2 to 4 star hotel.

The hotel, with its striking presence when entering the urban centre, will retain its current 366 rooms but will add a state of the art gym, separate wellness and beauty areas and an “original gastronomic space inspired by street food”. The hotel chain say that the renovation is being carried out with “high standards of energy efficiency and a quality construction process” costing 13 million euros with an opening date of 27 May 2022.

Summer 2022 is looking very promising as the hotel sector in San Antonio and Ibiza continues to go from strength to strength with major investment.

‘Space Ibiza’ on the Sunset Strip

Pepe Roselló

Pepe Roselló, the well known owner of ‘Space Ibiza’ has unveiled plans to open a bar and restaurant on the sunset strip in San Antonio for summer 2022. The new venture will be next door to Cafe Savannah in the Posta de Sol building and will be called ‘Space Sun Beach’.

Roselló says that the restaurant’s menu will be based on fresh local produce of high quality and a place that will be reminiscent of Space but “above all it will be a testimony to the musical legacy left to us by José Padilla”. He also promised dramatic musical interventions from the world of opera by Maria Callas, Renata Tebaldi, Joan Sutherland and Plácido Domingo.

This is great news for San Antonio and a good addition to the sunset strip which should bring in a new crowd to the area.

Meanwhile the veteran Ibiza businessman also has plans to keep the “spirit of Space” alive from next summer in a venue that won’t be announced “until everything has been clarified and signed” although it will be under the name of “Sundays at Space” which gives a clue to its dynamics.
