Let us cut to the basics. Sometimes one property can make a difference, says Girlahead. Take the future 116-room Six Senses Ibiza, opening late 2021. Owner Jonathan Leitersdorf is turning 25-acres into a mixed-use development that incorporates so much, from beach houses to recording studio. The GM, Gonzalo Rodriguez, has to learn lingo and laws of the music industry, wellness and agriculture – The Farm at Six Senses Ibiza is a 400-year-old olive press and agricultural estate, where hotel guests can take part in growing the abundance of organic produce that will also supply the resort’s restaurants, café and bars. All food, by the way, is by celebrity chef Eyal Shani, founding father of new Israeli cuisine: expect his offerings to follow the Eat With Six Senses guiding principles of organic, seasonal, nutritious and delicious, gathering guests at long tables in the Farmers’ Market restaurant (other venues include The Orchard, The Piazza, Farmacy Bar and Live Cave and there will a chef’s table, and cooking lessons).
Directly on the shorefront, the Beach Caves music venue is the heartbeat of Six Senses Ibiza. Beach Caves will host live shows, events, emerging artist sessions, and an expansive vinyl collection: it features avant-garde technology from McIntosh and Sonus faber through a partnership with McIntosh Group (insider tip, what is called the Cave Royale bedroom has a secret door leading to the Recording Studio).
Add to all this Agora, a retail concept that is part entertainment, part education and part shopping experience, all curated by fashion editors Daniela Agnelli and Tiffanie Darke and mindful of Reduce, Recycle, Rent and Restore (a “Cinderella Room” helps with dress-up nights). A partnership with Magnum, curated by Elaine Groenestein, will have changing photo exhibitions, and prints to buy.
Thank you Six Senses, for making a difference – again. Here, again, is Six Senses’ CEO Neil Jacobs:
