The place to stay and be seen, this new ho­tel brings clas­sic Mi­ami style to sunny Ibiza

The dis­tinc­tive 1970s aes­thetic, with its bub­blegum, pas­tel hues, makes the Par­adiso Ibiza Art Ho­tel the Balearics’ hottest new des­ti­na­tion. It’s the fifth project by the Con­cept Ho­tel Group, which called on the Madrid-based stu­dio Ilmio De­sign – run by Ital­ians An­drea Spada and Michele Cor­bani – to achieve its vi­sion of cre­at­ing a trib­ute to Mi­ami Mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture, or ‘Mimo’. This ex­otic style sprung up at the end of World War II, in the wake of the Art Deco move­ment. Ilmio has brought Mimo’s key char­ac­ter­is­tics – poured con­crete, sher­bet pink-painted stucco, flu­o­res­cent sig­nage and a glis­ten­ing pool sur­rounded by palm trees – to San An­to­nio Bay on Ibiza’s west coast. The Mi­ami look con­tin­ues in­side, too: note the mo­tel-style strip light­ing in the lobby, Austin Pow­ers-es­que rip­ple-ef­fect head­boards, gi­ant cacti and mid-cen­tury fur­ni­ture.

You’ll find a gallery ex­hibit­ing lo­cal art on the ground floor, as well as an art li­brary and one-off works in the ten Art Suites. For those who want to have their Big Brother mo­ment and be part of an in­stal­la­tion, there’s a bed­room in the lobby en­cased in glass, which an artist-in-res­i­dence will use when it’s not oc­cu­pied by guests. There’s also an out­door cin­ema and ‘Glam Bingo’ nights, plus Cos­mopoli­tans can be mixed at Andy’s, the in-house bar, and served pool­side. From £129 per night (par­adis­oibiza.com).
