The Beach Caves is a welcome addition to Six Senses Ibiza, and marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the brand. It reflects the history, excitement, and eclectic spirit of the Island,” says Ben Pundole, who has taken the reigns as the Beach Caves Creative Director.

“Through its unique design and extensive programming, we aim to create an incredible destination for both hotel guests and the local community to eat, drink, dance, shop and sleep. The cultural program will include art, music, and live performances, as well as a focus on environmental and community initiatives including ongoing support for Six Senses Ibiza´s conservation partner at Ibiza Preservation Fund, and bringing on new partnerships with The Lonely Whale Foundation and Project Zero.”

Located oceanfront and overlooking Xarraca Bay, The Beach Caves is the new home to a restaurant and bar that celebrates produce from Ibiza and takes inspiration from Latin America. It is also home to a private dining room, a speakeasy-style cocktail bar, a nightlife venue, a state-of-the-art recording studio, six impressive Beach Cave Suites, with direct access to the Mediterranean Sea and sweeping views of Ibiza’s famed sunsets, and a future retail ´kiosk´/gallery.

The Beach Caves is a collaboration between Six Senses Ibiza’s owner and developer Jonathan Leitersdorf and hospitality pioneers Ben Pundole, Michelle Reiss and Shiry Yosef.

Photographers Dylan Don and Darren Gerrish captured all the fun and beautiful people who attended the opening. Scroll down for the gallery.
