OD Talamanca, Ibiza
17 August, 2017
Whether you're hitting the White Isle to hell raise from sunrise to sunrise or want nothing more than to float around on a giant inflatable flamingo staring at the sky, thi design-led hotel from the OD group offers a contemporary-cool space to live out your best life. Situated just a stone's throw from the beach in sought-after Talamanca, the hotel is a short drive from Dalta Vila (Ibiza's old town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and ideally located for making the best of the island's lively restaurants and bars before taking the highway to hedonism and getting stuck into the club scene. With the cobalt Med on your doorstep for when you tire of splashing around in one of three pools, breakfast which goes on until a leisurely 12PM and a resident DJ spinning out the soundtrack, OD Talamanca is hard to beat when it comes to a Balearic break.
OD Talamanca, Ibiza
The 117 rooms are divided across two buildings, all offering balconies with views of the bay and marina below. A calm colour palette is exactly what's needed when you've no doubt been blinded by the club lights; neutral tones and wooden furnishings are pepped up with blue tones to create a minimalist beach-chic feel, with modern finishes such as hanging lights, glass partition doors and sleek bathrooms.
What's for breakfast?
The sight of a breakfast bar groaning under the weight of fresh produce is what morning-after-the-night-before dreams are made of. A made-to-order range of hot plates provide perfect hangover ammunition, while the more health-conscious can load up on superfood as well as fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and smoothies.
How about lunch and dinner?
For lunch, you can't beat the zingy offerings from, Coricancha, the poolside ceviche bar specialising in Nikkei cuisine. Come dinner, head to the spacious ground-floor restaurant (complete with a terrace) for an international à la carte menu spanning everything from traditional Spanish fare to curry, pasta, burgers, salads and wok dishes. The kitchen never closes - ideal for those who've thrown their usual routine out of the window for the week(end).
Is there a bar?
It's Ibiza, there's always a bar. Spend days sipping sangria from the poolside cabana with chilled out lounge music providing the soundtrack. Come evening, the DJ ramps things up a bit - join in with a sundowner cocktail from the well-stocked lobby bar.
24-hour room service, free wi-fi, rentable smart cars and an on-site gym which offers hair, make-up, massage and manicure treatments if you're going out out.
