Today we’re going to dive into the history of the island through one of its most emblematic establishments: Montesol Hotel.
Founded in 1933, Gran Hotel Montesol Ibiza was the first hotel built in Ibiza and it has been declared of cultural interest by UNESCO.
Since last July, it has reopened its doors as a 5 star hotel, completely remodeled while maintaining the aesthetics and essence of always.
The hotel is situated in a key point of Ibiza’s center: Vara de Rey. Its beautiful beige and yellow facade in the neocolonial style, calls everyone’s attention.
Through the hotel have passed well know and famous people such as Orson Welles, members of Pink Floyd or the mythical Caroline of Monaco. It's a great pleasure to walk around and enjoy its new image! I think that elegant touch is necessary in some parts of the island.
The exclusive hotel is the first property that Hilton Worldwide has on the island. Gran Hotel Montesol Ibiza is part of the Curio brand of Hilton Worldwide, a hotel chain of distinguished exclusivity and luxury that has expanded quickly and seeks to attract passionate travelers who demand authentic and local experiences.
There are 33 rooms that have been decorated by the well-known interior designer Lárazo Rosa-Violan. The number of rooms that offer views of the old town and the harbor has increased.
The warmth of these rooms thanks to the new design make the clients feel at home.
But these are not the only changes. The classic Café Montesol, located on the ground floor of the hotel, has become the center of social life on the island.
This venue that has a capacity of 300 people is known among the residents as a place of exchange and meeting. There you can enjoy the Spanish Mediterranean cuisine, as well as other gastronomic cultures and different typical tapas. This bar is the perfect place to relax while having a drink or a cocktail.
On its terrace, one is carried away by the continual coming and going of tourists and residents who stroll along the boulevard of Vara del Rey. Here you feel the cosmopolitan character of the island.
The best of all is that both the Gran Hotel Montesol and Café Montesol are open all year! So there are no excuses not to visit us in another season than the summer! See you in the next post and travel with Ibiza Luxury Travel!
