The shaman of travel on Ibiza
From the series “Hotels to fall in love with”
Contributed by feature reporter Jens Hoffmann
The Balearic island of Ibiza is a special island, rich in exoticism and magic. Many myths and rumors surround the island and its little sister island Es Vedrà. For some it is the last visible part of Atlantis. It attracts several million tourists every summer.
With its legendary nightlife and world-famous DJs, it is considered as a spiritual party island.
But you can also relax here.
My hideaway is the Can Lluc Hotel.
Is this still a journey or am I being taken to another world?
The former hacienda is hidden in the outback of Ibiza.
A steel gate opens. When the car is off, there is a pleasant silence.
The Hotel Can Lluc presents itself, cats relax on the warm stone slabs on the way to my Villa 17.
You can really enjoy a different Ibiza than the well-known Party Ibiza.
It welcomes me with sophisticated, cultivated luxury in an authentic Ibizienco ambience, perfect for holidaymakers who appreciate privacy and understated luxury in a traditional rural setting. Much of Ibiza’s natural beauty is revealed here.
Hotel Can Llucc lies in a hidden valley.
The former hacienda embedded in a wide landscape is a blend of sustainable agritourism and luxury.
This boutique hotel has just opened two new villas for its guests.
These houses are also presented in the traditional style of the “Isla Blanca” with whitewashed walls, stone roofs and floors made of elm wood.
They radiate a puristic coziness behind which the highest level of comfort is hidden: fine furniture and fabrics made from natural materials, air conditioning and heating, WiFi, minibar and coffee maker, satellite TV and much more.
In addition to the bedroom, guests can stay in the living area.
The private sun terrace with open-air shower, sun loungers and comfortable lounge chairs leads to the wonderful garden. From here you can also hike through the countryside with olive trees, some of which are 1,000 years old.
A high degree of privacy is guaranteed – perfect for all people who are looking for peace, want to spend a romantic time or want to explore the beauty of the fauna and flora of the region.
However, you do not have to do without the amenities of a high-quality hotel.
The Can Lluc Hotel Rural offers all its guests a swimming pool with a wonderful view of the valley, massages and a very knowledgeable concierge service.
At 34 degrees, I enjoyed a day at the large pool.
From here you can enjoy the view over the valley with its olive and fruit trees.
A spiritual place.
The cuisine in the hotel was also convincing. The restaurant offers the finest Mediterranean specialities. It is sustainably cooked with fresh regional ingredients. A departure from the heavy Spanish food of days gone by.
The Slow Food idea also continues at breakfast. Wonderful fresh local goods, croissants, tostado, ham, different types of cheese and fruit inspire me, and the beautiful fig jam tastes excellent.
In the evening its fun to enjoy the sunset.
Everyone feasts on the silence like an elixir.
Thanks to the remoteness of the place, it’s easy to relax after a hot day on the beach.
The hotel offers yoga classes free of charge every Friday on the roof terrace of
the restaurant. Private yoga classes are possible on request.
Car hire, at the airport or for delivery at Can Lluc.
Furthermore massages, beauty treatments and babysitting services are available.
Total: Ibiza is a mystical place and the Hotel Can Lluc is the perfect address for a reaxed stay.
