Montesol Experimental a century of luxury hospitality
Built nearly a century ago, Montesol is Ibiza's original hotel, a jewel nestled at the feet of Dalt Vila in the heart of Ibiza's Old Town. The hotel stands as an icon, a seamless blend of modernity juxtaposed against the rich tapestry of one of Europe's oldest towns.
Now a boutique hotel, with its 33 rooms, restaurant, and rooftop bar, it serves as a Balearic getaway that once welcomed Hollywood's biggest stars in the 1950s and continued to pave the way for peace and love in the subsequent decades. Today, the Experimental Group has breathed new life into this historic space, transforming it into a 5-star haven, a seamless fusion of past and present decor, ensuring its legacy endures.
Constructed in 1933, the Neo-Colonial building has stood as a cornerstone of tourism in Ibiza for nearly a century. Flourishing during its peak years from the 1950s to the 1980s, Montesol emerged as an esteemed Gran hotel, serving as the a gateway to the white isle's hedonistic heyday.
Under its roof, celebrities, royalty, bohemians, and hippies alike converged, making it a haven where luminaries such as Pink Floyd, Orson Welles, and Carolina de Monaco once found respite. Nestled in an ideal location, this historic hotel is conveniently within walking distance from Ibiza's Old Town and a short drive to beautiful beaches.
Experimental in Ibiza
Experimental landed in Ibiza in 2013 with the arrival of Experimental Beach, a seaside escape tucked away in the Las Salinas salt reserve. In 2021, Experimental Group acquired Gran Hotel Montesol, first renovating the ground floor restaurant and rooftop bar.
Soon after, designer Dorothée Meilichzon reimagined each room, carefully infusing a bohemian undertone throughout the interior of the hotel, using cool tones counterbalanced with lush patterns. A haven in the city centre with a beachside escape, just a short drive away.
