Ibiza, the resort island in the Mediterranean about 100 miles from Spain, is where Europe (and the world) goes to unwind, vacation, maybe dance a little, and just get away from the cold weather. The island is filled with beautiful beaches and spectacular natural scenery. There are also a wide range of resorts, from budget to luxury, and your choice may depend on its location.

The main city on Ibiza is known as Ibiza Town (or simply Vila), and it's on the south part of the island. Other major resort areas include Portinatx in the north, San Antonio in the west, and Santa Eulalia in the east.

In Ibiza, some resorts are directly on the sand, while many others are up a few steps away from the beach, requiring a few minutes' walk. There are all kinds of resorts on Ibiza-some cater to adults only, some to couples, and some to families. Some large resorts are able to provide a good experience for all three.

Keep in mind Ibiza is a seasonal resort. Many hotels close for the fall and winter and are only open during the high season, from May through October. Find a great place to stay with our list of the top resorts in Ibiza.

Note: Some businesses may be temporarily closed due to recent global health and safety issues.

1. Six Senses Ibiza

One of the newer resorts on Ibiza, the Six Senses Ibiza is the first BREEAM-certified luxury resort in the Balearic Islands for its overall sustainability and minimal impact to the environment. From the sustainable design to the use of natural, locally sourced construction materials to the total lack of plastics or single-use products, it's all about being in harmony with the natural environment.

The Six Senses is on Xarraca Bay, which is a remote part (on Ibiza that means a 20-minute drive from Vila) of the very northern tip of the island. There are 118 rooms and suites, including townhouses and pool suites, which open right onto the pool. Many of the rooms have private terraces, providing dramatic sunset (and every other part of the day) views over the ocean. Some of those terraces have outdoor showers and outdoor bathtubs.

Four different restaurants serve seasonal, nutritional, ethically sourced food, but foodies would probably be happier at one of Ibiza's resorts that focuses on gastronomy, like the Amare. The Six Senses is known for its Showcase Six Senses Spa and its curated program of wellness activities, including yoga, meditation, holistic healing, and more.

This luxury resort features contemporary rooms and suites with large windows and minimalist design. These are family-friendly affairs, with options for interconnected rooms, although the brand tends to attract more of an adult-oriented crowd. If you want to really spoil yourself, book one of the upgraded rooms with a private swimming pool.

Amenities are plentiful at the W. There are multiple restaurants, including one dedicated to vegetarian fare and another focusing on steak. Other perks of staying here include direct beach access with sun loungers and umbrellas for guests to use, an outdoor swimming pool, fitness room, and a spa offering everything from massages to facials.

If you like house music and luxury accommodations, this is the resort for you. It's at Playa d'en Bossa beach, only about five minutes' drive from the airport. Ushuaia has long been one of Ibiza's most popular nightlife choices, and they've created an entire themed resort, which includes a large outdoor performance venue.

This is a large seaside resort overlooking Santa Eulalia Bay. It's right next to the Congress Centre (exhibition area) and close to the little Santa Eulalia marina.
