1. The Standard
It was only a matter of time before The Standard hotel group found its way to Ibiza – and how! Once a cinema, this stunning hotel on Vara de Rey was conceived by acclaimed Spanish creator Lázaro Rosa-Violán with interiors by Oskar Kohnen. It features 53 rooms and suites, street-level restaurant Jara, plus a rooftop bar with a 15-metre swimming pool and panoramic views.

2. Chi Kee Wun
This brand-new Chinese fusion dining experience is set in a secret oriental garden in San Antonio. As the town continues its rise in the gastro stakes, the latest venture from the company behind Wi-Ki-Woo, Bam-Bu-Ku and O Beach Ibiza is a perfect place for pre-club nourishment or simply a special night out. NATIV is loving the dim sum selection and fabulous cocktail list.

The Barcelona bar and restaurant gets a brand new sister on Formentera. Salvatge specializes in natural wines from around the world alongside fresh healthy food. It’s always good to see new openings on the island and if the staff here are as friendly as their colleagues are over on the mainland, this place is sure to be one of the hits of the summer.

6. Dos Ibiza
A great new addition to Vara de Rey’s bustling shopping experience with items for both men and women. We love the Komono shades, but this season it’s all about getting NA-KD – “fashion fit for the future to wear now and love longer”. Dos Ibiza it’s all about beautiful laid-back looks inspired by the raw side of Ibiza.
