The Giri residence hotel & spa
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.
