Here, they come together to celebrate the island’s colourful history through design, art, music and food, and with that, comes a new and eclectic energy in a hidden corner of the north.
Having opened this summer, the Beach Caves is a collaboration between Six Senses Ibiza’s owner and developer, Jonathan Leitersdorf and hospitality pioneer, Ben Pundole, who has taken the reigns as the Beach Caves Creative Director, working alongside Ben’s partners Michelle Reiss and Shiry Yosef to bring to fun fruition.
‘The Beach Caves is a welcome addition to Six Senses Ibiza, and marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the brand,’ Ben Pundole says. ‘It reflects the history, excitement, and eclectic spirit of the Island. 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 programme 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.’
At the Beach Caves there is something for everyone, from a recording studio and sweeping suites, to a restaurant and terrace that have enviable views of the ocean, along with a sexy bar, and of course, it wouldn’t be compete without The Xarraca Room.
