the low­down A re­mod­elled Ibizan farm­house goes boho-chic. Best for Recharg­ing your bat­ter­ies at a slow-paced, high-class re­treat. With just the sounds of bird­song (and the odd bleat­ing sheep) to serenade you, The Giri Res­i­dence is the per­fect place to re­lax – and with only five beau­ti­fully fur­nished suites to choose from, guar­an­teed pri­vacy and per­son­alised ser­vice come as stan­dard. Sit­u­ated in the pic­turesque vil­lage of San Juan – a short drive north of Ibiza Town – The Giri is off the beaten track, but not too remote (you can get to the near­est beach in min­utes). That’s if you can rouse yourself from this sump­tu­ous set­ting… Each of the suites is dressed in eclec­tic fash­ion, with ba­li­nese-style wall hang­ings, bam­boo and teak fur­ni­ture, mod­ern stone tubs and a mix of tac­tile sur­face treat­ments, rang­ing from re­claimed wood-pan­elled walls to inset strips of in­laid peb­bles. The spa in­cludes a plunge pool, whirlpool and baths, with fa­cials, mas­sages, yoga and Pi­lates all on of­fer. Food can be served pretty much any­where and the chef is happy to pop out to the lo­cal mar­ket to sat­isfy any par­tic­u­lar re­quire­ments. The Giri also has a sis­ter es­tab­lish­ment – The Giri Café – which is a renowned din­ing spot in the vil­lage square. It’s the ideal way to meet some of Ibiza’s res­i­dent cre­atives.
