Review: TRS Ibiza Hotel

Ibiza’s party-pro town of San Antonio hasn’t the finest reputation, and it’s us Brits that are often to blame. Welcoming some much-needed luxury to the north-western pocket of the island is TRS Ibiza Hotel, which opened its doors in June 2022. The European debut from the group (which already has a strong presence in the Caribbean), the property is the first premium all-inclusive adults-only hotel on the island. This includes an elevated ‘Signature Level’ experience offering discerning guests all those welcomed little extras: from access to VIP areas and private early check-in, and late check out.

Sunbeds around the swimming pool at TRS Ibiza Hotel

I’m ever-dubious of all-inclusive hotels, often repeatedly encouraging guests to stay put while turning a blind eye to the local touch points beyond the lobby. TRS Ibiza Hotel, however, is reinventing this outdated concept to meet the demands of the luxury traveller. Notably, in addition to the benefits of booking yourself in at the Signature Level, outside the hotel you can pick your choice of several restaurants across the island. Finally, it seems there is a hotel that understands guests will return should it loosen the all-inclusive ties. At TRS, I had the option to take my pick of menus from 15 restaurants across Ibiza, notably Nikki Beach and The Beach Restaurant at Ushuaïa.


Our Signature Level Suite, situated on one of the top floors, perfectly framed the horizon meeting the ocean. With smart parquet wooden flooring, a large walk-in wardrobe space, a king-size memory foam bed and white marble wet room, it’s a contemporary space with earthy tones and touches of colour from the furnishings. Making the most of the view, our suite also featured two outdoor terraces, accessible through floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. One with a table and chairs, the other accommodating two wooden sun loungers, which enjoyed the majority of the sunshine each day.

A sea-view bedroom at the hotel

Beneath us, we spied other types of suites – notably outdoor Jacuzzi suites. At TRS, there are also sunset and sea view suites and Deluxe and Deluxe Superior as modest room options. Meanwhile, on the right-hand side of the main property is the ‘All Together’ suite. For larger adult groups, this suite can host up to four guests, with interconnecting rooms and a terrace that overlooks the main pool that is front and centre.


Beyond our room, this Signature Level experience entitled us access to a poolside hammock area, the rooftop Sky Lounge with its gorgeous infinity pool (an absolute ideal spot to witness the sunset) and the hotel’s dark horse: the ‘Zentropia Palladium’ Spa. Hidden beyond a large, high-tech gym, we visited for an express 25-minute sensory massage, and expectations were far exceeded. Firstly, this massage exceeded many I’ve experienced lying on a bed for an hour plus. This followed by navigating deeper into this wellness tardis and to its five-star facilities – which are, of course, included in the hotel’s Signature Level booking.

The hotel claims you’ll be ‘blown away’ with this impressive spa. With a huge pool surrounded by chic striped loungers and rich green palms, this retreat – away from the DJ that blasts across the main pool – was a welcome surprise. Arguably one of TRS’s strongest assets, indulge in a dry and wet sauna, steam rooms and a sensational shower, all in a space that feels like another (wellness-led) hotel of its own.

The spa

TRS’s popular hot spot is the main ‘Gaia’ pool. In the centre of the property and surrounded by countless loungers and cabanas, it’s impossible to miss. We lay here on our first day as the DJ continues to ramp up his performance and the pool team serves us icy strawberry daiquiris and salty margaritas. It was the following day that we eyed up (from the viewing point of our terrace) another pool on the far side of the property that we weaved our way over to. Comparable to the spa, The ‘Io’ pool almost feels like another hotel. Still and serene, this calmer area elevates the hotel’s poolside offerings, dotted with large olive trees, opulent loungers and an all-day lounge and snack bar.


In addition to the restaurant partnerships across the island, TRS Ibiza Hotel has three à la carte restaurants and five bars onsite. The Gaucho grill house sears meats with modern and traditional cooking techniques in an Ibizan-inspired setting. For Mediterranean dining, Helios offers indulgent but relaxed luxury with dishes that epitomise Ibiza and the wider Mediterranean, with a few Asian touches thrown in.

Meanwhile, with a buffet is Capricho which displayed countless mini dishes, inviting us to taste anything available. With inside seating and a large covered outdoor terrace (where we sat overlooking the pool), Capricho is the largest restaurant on site and stands out with aqua green tones. Each morning, I particularly enjoyed Spain’s most popular breakfast dish, the traditional ‘Pan con Tomate’ (tomatoes on toast), on fresh sourdough, which I devoured drizzled in olive oil. Meanwhile, we finished our last day upstairs at the rooftop pool bar Gravity sampling the signature cocktail menu, best paired with far-reaching ocean views.

Dining at dusk


TRS seems to have grasped a new era of luxury all-inclusive. While this is a concept I remain wary of, TRS Ibiza has done an excellent job and, on check-out, I found myself Googling room rates for my return. I expect San Antonio has never seen such a serene spa, while the property’s enviable oceanfront setting makes striking sunsets brilliantly unavoidable.


Deluxe Rooms at TRS Ibiza Hotel start from £311 a night, based on two adults sharing on an all-inclusive basis. Signature Level starts from £607 a night.
