Are you searching for the perfect Boutique Hotel in Ibiza's city center? Look no further than Montesol Experimental, a timeless gem that offers an unparalleled blend of luxury, history, and Bohemian charm. Nestled in the heart of Ibiza's historic old town, this boutique hotel, formerly known as Gran Hotel Montesol, underwent a stunning transformation in 2021 under the visionary guidance of the Experimental Group. Let's take a journey through Montesol Experimental, the 5-star luxury boutique hotel in Ibiza that promises an unforgettable experience.
In 2021, after taking over Gran Hotel Montesol, the Experimental Group embarked on a mission to restore and redesign Ibiza's original hotel. This Neo-Colonial building, dating back to 1933, has been completely reimagined by renowned designer Dorothée Meilichzon, who leads design projects for Experimental Group properties across Europe. This extensive renovation began with the redesign of the hotel's restaurant and bar in 2021, and Meilichzon's creative touch has now extended to the hotel's luxurious bedrooms.
Throughout the 1950s to the 1980s, Montesol Hotel stood at the pinnacle of its existence, attracting celebrities, royalty, and free spirits alike. Legends such as Pink Floyd, Orson Welles, and Carolina de Monaco graced the hotel's iconic roof. Meilichzon's design approach infuses a Bohemian overtone throughout the interior while paying homage to the building's storied past.
As you step inside Montesol Experimental, you'll be greeted by a palette of cool, calming colors, a perfect counterbalance to the Balearic heat. Luxurious fabrics adorned with intricate patterns, fringes, and pompoms catch your eye at every turn. Cosmic elements, including moon carvings and brass suns, adorn the hotel's decor, setting the stage for a unique experience. The color scheme ranges from celestial grays to light greens and pastel hues, creating an atmosphere of serenity and sophistication.
Montesol Experimental celebrates local craftsmanship. Artistic masks handcrafted by Anna Alexandra in Mallorca and Playdough Stools meticulously created by Diego Faivre are just a glimpse of the local talent that graces the hotel. Traditional Spanish-inspired tiles decorate spaces like minibars, and glossy lacquer wardrobes cleverly conceal your night's outfit behind puzzle piece doors, adding a touch of Ibiza's distinctive sparkle.
Café Montesol, revamped in 2021, offers a delightful escape from the summer sun and a cozy retreat during cooler evenings. Chef Alex Larrea adds a touch of whimsy to local delicacies, sourced from the area. Whether you indulge in tapas-style dishes ideal for sharing or pair your meal with a cold beer or Spain's finest small producer wines, Café Montesol promises a culinary journey like no other. It has become a local favorite, embodying decades of stories whispered from table to table.
Heading upstairs, you'll find a rooftop cocktail bar that offers breathtaking views of Dalt Vila. It's a serene escape from the lively Ibiza nightlife. The drink menu is a treasure trove, featuring everything from cold glasses of rosé and beer to expertly crafted cocktails.
New for 2023, Montesol Experimental introduces a small boutique. Here, you can explore a curated selection of accessories and clothing, ranging from timeless jewelry by Gas Bijoux to supple leather bags from Malababa, stylish sunglasses from Pared Eyewear, and exquisite handmade scarves and ponchos from Aurea Fibra Nativa.
