“As with all Sir Hotels, it is essential that Sir Joan reflects the ethos of the surrounding area. We were inspired by the marina, the ocean, but also by the people on the island. By combining contemporary design with nostalgic details, we aim to create a unique urban oasis at the heart of the world-famous island.” Liran Wizman, owner and founder of Sir Hotels.
The interiors are designed by award-winning architects and interior designersBaranowitz + Kronenberg, and pay homage to yacht-living and the ocean. Barcelona-based Architects Ribas & Ribas have created a unique and contemporary checkered façade in the heart of the island, just steps away from famous clubs such as Pacha and Lio. The property boasts a collection of curated artworks featuring work from Spanish art legend Joan Hernandez Pijuan, and Carlos Irijalba Inercia, alongside photographs from Ibiza-based photographer Landry A.
The ground floor public area evokes a ‘members only’ social club. Inside, vertical corrugated steel bars line up along the interior walls, resonating with naval ropes and the erosion of metal by the sea, while the outside area boasts a triangular pool, heated throughout the winter season, lined with cabanas and lounge chairs.
In the public space, the outside blends into the inside, and is home to one of theproperty’s two restaurants, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, set to be the island’s nexthotspot. Originating in Amsterdam, the iconic restaurant offers guests and locals a culinary experience of contemporary Japanese cuisine fused with Peruvian flavours.
The second restaurant, THE BUTCHER, is an award-winning, high end burger bar which is accessed through a separate entrance. The popular Amsterdam eatery willbe open throughout the night, ideal for the island’s late-night revellers. Both restaurants are founded and owned by Yossi Eliyahoo and Liran Wizman of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP.
"The hotel is based on the most spectacular location close to the beach and the city centre of Ibiza. Truly could not be on a better seaside location, with all the best shops around the hotel and some incredible restaurants as well in the area around the hotel including Izakaya and The Butcher which are both located in the hotel itself. Sir Joan not only offers the mesmerizing views, stylish design but also great fine dining at their restaurant IZAKAYA, one beautiful outdoor pool with panoramic views but also the sexiest, stylish and modern rooms. All in all this has been one of the recent travel highlights definitely, and cannot wait to stay there again on my next trip to Ibiza." - Timotej Letonja

Rooms are modern, beautiful, clean, optical spacious and practical. Professional, kind and good looking staff are making sure you feel very welcome. At Restaurant Izakaya, directly next to the beautiful modern designed pool, we had an excellent Japanese- Peruvian fine dining experience. The menu features fresh sushi, sashimi and a variety of exquisite meat and fish, prepared on a traditional robata grill or in a hibachi fire bowl. Presentation, quality products en service are on point. Everything together, Sir Joan Hotel is a great hotel that adds a special value to your stay on this beautiful island Ibiza. - Bart Grein
