The new five star retreat OKU Ibiza, proves with its minimalist design, to be a prestigious travel destination in the west of the island of Ibiza. Inspired by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, with warm earth tones and natural materials, the hotel provides a retreat from everyday life to reconnect with yourself.
Laidback – luxury for discerning travelers
The aim of the “Laidback – Luxury” concept is to revisit the theme of deceleration with modern, minimalist design and culinary experiences. Thanks to a big pool, the extraordinary wellness area, a 140m2 suite with its own pool and exotic dishes in the hotel’s own restaurant, this is no challenge for the OKU.
The new lifestyle hotel on the island of Ibiza is located directly on the Balearic Islands on the edge of the breathtaking Cala Gracio Bay, surrounded by white beaches.
Extraordinary architecture meets minimalist design
The stylish hotel impresses with its unique design and attention to detail. Inspired by the themes of nature, sustainability and the lifestyle of “barefoot living”, every corner of the hotel reflects Ibiza’s lifestyle. Derived from the Japanese spiritual concept “OKU”, which means “inner space“, the OKU Hotels offer the perfect stay for a relaxed and inspiring vacation.
The natural and minimalist design ethos of the OKU brand was transferred to the architecture of the hotel by the architects MG&AG. Together with the in-house design team at OKU Hotels, they attach particular importance to a natural light–shadow ratio in order to bring the rooms to life. The interior should reflect the carefree beach life of Ibiza and invite you to a lifestyle of “barefoot life“.
Awaken your senses
The OKU Hotel Ibiza belief that optimal rest and relaxation can be achieved above all when “body, mind & soul” are considered together. Thus, the hotel concentrates on all three points at the same time in order to increase your own well–being and to find your inner peace.
This way of life is reinforced with daily yoga lessons in the yoga shala on the roof terrace. In the quiet spa, carefully selected treatments that combine old traditions with modern techniques take care to the specific needs of the guest. The “body” part is rounded off by the hotel’s own fitness studio, with modern equipment from NOHrD & Casall and a personal trainer for individual support.
The Sunday brunch, which takes place right by the pool, offers a varied program with DJs and live artists from the island to unwind away from everyday life.
The OKU team also offers a range of other activities such as private boat trips to Formentera and other nearby islands, kayaking at sunset and guided hikes through Ibiza’s breathtaking landscape.
Fusion cuisine – locally sourced, internationally inspired
A culinary experience is very important for OKU Ibiza. Guests are offered real enjoyment in the two hotels restaurants.
The “To Kima“, which is located directly at the pool, offers an intimate atmosphere for a relaxed evening. Chef Mark Vaessen personally treats his guests with Japanese fusion cuisine and sends them on a culinary journey. In addition, the “To Kima” offers the opportunity to enjoy an all-day breakfast and lunch: the focus is on Mediterranean dishes, light snacks, as well as à la carte dishes and snacks by the pool.
In the second restaurant of the OKU Hotel Ibiza, international dishes like Asian tapas, grilled fish or Asian fusion cuisine are served. Every taste is met here, vegetarians and vegans also enjoy top-class culinary delights.
Aperitifs and digestifs are taken at the 50-meter-long pool bar, accompanied by DJ beats, until the early hours of the morning. During the day, a healthy smoothie bar by the central pool refreshes guests with freshly squeezed juices and smoothies.
