Our in-depth review of 7Pines Resort Ibiza will help you decide whether you should book this luxurious retreat in the Balearics. A celebrity favorite nestled in the cliffs in calmer west Ibiza, this stylish resort and spa overlook magical Es Vedrà and promise an idyllic escape with unmatchable cuisine and all the bohemian magic Ibiza has to offer. 

Ibiza has no shortage of incredible luxury hotels, but 7Pines is legendary on the White Isle as being one of the best. 7Pines Resort is spread over 56,000 meters with 185 white-washed suites, three restaurants, three bars, three pools, an acclaimed spa, and a kids’ club. With warm and attentive staff—who you’ll often spot hopping on and off buggies due to the sheer size of the place—incredible views and serene spa to escape to, it’s not hard to see why this impeccable collection of sea-front suites is a hotspot for celebrities and discerning holiday goers alike. Perhaps the biggest draw is its amazing swimming pool, the hotel's focal point on the cliff edge looking out to mystical Es Vedrà. 

Our deputy digital editor Lauren Hughes stayed at 7Pines Resort Ibiza and delved into every detail. She visited the acclaimed Pure Seven Spa, dined in 7Pines’ three restaurants, and explored the local area in order to bring you an honest, in-depth account of the highlights at 7Pines Resort Ibiza. Does it live up to the hype? Could its scenic views mean it's up there with the most beautiful hotels in the world? Here, she reveals why the quieter side of Ibiza is one of the best places to visit in 2022 and why 7Pines is a 5* woman&home approved hotel.

In a secluded part in the west of the island that feels completely removed from Ibiza's revelers, 7Pines Resort Ibiza takes its name from the conifers that surround its grounds and has an air of complete serenity. 

Cala Codolar, a small and unspoiled cove, is just a short walk away, while San Jose, one of Ibiza's most charming spots in the foothills of Sa Talaia can be reached in about 15 minutes by car. While the resort feels spacious and sprawling, it retains the charm of a quaint Spanish village, rather than a flashy resort. This being said, its fleet of Perishing yachts—all of which are available for guest hire—does somewhat ramp up the luxury factor. 

What makes the setting of 7Pines Resort Ibiza special?

The legendary Ibizan sunset is spectacular from most points on the island, but it's hard to beat the experience at 7Pines thanks to its east-facing clifftop spot—not to mention its cleverly-situated infinity pool that bathes in the sun's final rays. Each night, guests are dazzled by a kaleidoscope of color at the resort, where sunset sessions become a nightly ritual, accompanied by stylish cocktails and soft Balearic beats. 

The island typically enjoys a milder climate than the mainland, with the temperature warming up in April, with highs of around 20 °C / 68 °F lasting until as late as November. This means Ibiza is one of the best places to visit in September and October if you'd rather avoid the crowds. The ocean views are vast and panoramic, with plenty of places to soak up the atmosphere, from the sophisticated Pershing Yacht Terrace to the Cone Club's outdoor bar situated right on the cliff edge. 

What are the 7Pines restaurants like?

There are three restaurants to choose from in 7Pines—the Cone Club, The View, and the Pershing Yacht Terrace, all with their own unique offering. 

  • The View—expect both incredible views and cuisine from the hotel’s star restaurant, offering a gastronomic journey with six different tasting menus. Expect to pay premium rates here, with innovative dishes that are edible works of art. Guest chefs, often with a Michelin star or two under their belt, are known to take up residency at The View, with dishes inspired by all corners of the globe. Last summer saw two-Michellin star chef Tohru Nakamura team up with 7Pines chef Andrés Fernández to create a special tasting menu and wine pairing. The View’s 40-meter glassed facade means indoor and outdoor seating blend into one, with elevated seating for those all-important views. Breakfast is also served at The View restaurant, making your morning coffee a remarkable start to the day.
  • Cone Club—for more laid-back Mediterranean dining head to the Cone Club for delicious sharing platters, washed down with Spanish wines and sangria in a bright and cheerful setting. Guests can also enjoy daily live Sunset Rituals DJ sets on balmy summer nights.
  • Pershing Yacht Terrace—if you're more in the mood for grazing on nibbles with cocktails, head to the stylish Pershing Yacht terrace for sundowners. Themed menus run throughout the season, with last summer seeing the launch of an izakaya-style raw food concept. 

There's also a Mexican food truck on-site next to the family-friendly laguna pool, which is ideal for a quick bite with the kids. 7Pines can also arrange a delicious picnic hamper in a scenic spot, whether that's up in the hills after a family hike or bike ride, or down in one of the sheltered coves along the coast. 

What are the bedrooms like at 7Pines Resort Ibiza?

In true Ibizan style, rooms are pared-back and chic with a relaxed, boho vibe. Think wooden floors and neutral tones, with patterned accents bringing a little more character to the white-washed spaces. To complement their seafront location, green and blue hues are featured throughout the suites. Comfort is King, with luxurious and spacious double beds and crisp white bedding. The luxe feel continues in the bathroom, with walk-in showers that offer three settings—normal, rain, and spa—Molton Brown toiletries, and those signature fluffy towels.

If it's a special occasion and you want to book something truly special, the aptly-named cliff suites offer the best views with private sun-drenched terraces, while the spacious Laguna Suites, which run alongside the family-friendly Laguna Pool, are the best option for families. 

What's the spa like at 7Pines Resort Ibiza?

Pure Seven Spa at 7Pines Resort Ibiza is one of the resort’s stand-out facilities, with light and airy treatment rooms, a spa circuit with wet and dry experiences, a fully-equipped gym, and plenty of studio space for the wellness center’s range of classes—from full-moon yoga classes to strength training workouts.  Spread over 1,500sq m, Pure Seven Spa offers a seamless experience, drawing its influences from Mayan, Indian Ayurveda, Chinese, and European wellness techniques. 

The products used in the spa are all-natural, with the best essential oils sourced locally on the island. There’s also a breathtaking infinity pool to discover outside, which is serviced by its own chiringuito—a small bar that sells snacks and drinks, including some tasty cocktails. The hotel's Infinity Pool is restricted to over-16s only, while the Laguna Pool is suitable for all ages.

Where is 7Pines Resort Ibiza and what else can you do there?

We would forgive you for not wanting to leave the 7Pines Resort, considering its all-encompassing facilities, but if you do want to venture out, there's plenty more on this mystical island to be discovered. We'd recommend hiring a car to explore all Ibiza has to offer, but if you'd rather stay on foot or bicycle, there are plenty of excursions within easy reach.

The staff at 7Pines can help with organizing a range of outdoor activities for guests to explore the resort’s surrounding nature, including scenic guided hikes and trail runs exploring Torre Rovida, Cala Comta, Cala Escondida, and Sa Figuera Borda. While hiking or cycling, stop off to swim and snorkel along the way and drink in the island's natural beauty. 

As well as wild swimming in the sea and forest bathing, Ibiza is a deeply spiritual place, with some incredible places to enjoy meditation and yoga. If you want to venture into the hustle and bustle for a taster of a more traditional European city break, Ibiza Town is a 20-minute drive or cab ride away and will satisfy the urge for lively tapas and music nestled in winding streets with twinkling lights. In Ibiza Town, the iconic Dalt Vila—the remains of a fortress dating back to the Renaissance period—is well worth a visit.

If you really want to push the boat—or in this case, yacht—out, you'd be hard pushed to find a more special place in Ibiza than 7Pines Resort Ibiza. We'd go as far as to say it's one of the best luxury hotels in the world, largely due to its incredible setting and iconic infinity pool—not to mention the extremely attentive staff who won't let you lift a finger. The culinary offering is superb and teamed with an attention-to-detail that ensures guests relax into each corner of the thoughtfully-designed hotel, a visit to 7Pines offers a taster of true Ibizan magic.
