This year, we took our holiday to
Ibiza. We stayed at the Grand Palladium White Island Resort
& Spa, as we wanted something a bit special. It was a fantastic choice, the
Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts are very special, in fact it exceeded all
our expectations. The location is fantastic, and we spend the first day just
relaxing on the beach.
Hotel in Playa d’en Bossa: Grand Palladium White Island Resort & Spa
The Grand Palladium White Island
Resort & Spa is right in the centre of Playa d’en Bossa, and the beach
there seems to go on forever. In the evening we went to one of the hotel’s
restaurants. The La Doña serves fantastic Mexican food and we had more tacos
then we should have. On we went to one of the local bars, which are just a
short walk from the hotel. It was a great atmosphere and we stayed out quite
late. Time just got away from us! That didn’t matter because our hotel room
proved to be the best place to sleep in the next morning before having a
relaxing coffee on our balcony.
The view of the Mediterranean was
stunning! In the afternoon we took a tour around the island. It is such a
beautiful place and well worth exploring. But once we had settled in, we made
the most of all the other activities the Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts offer.
My favourite was diving in the ocean. I had no idea that the Mediterranean had
such a huge variety of fish and other sea life. I was really worried that it
would be cold, but the water temperatures were very pleasant so we were able to
stay underwater the maximum amount of time. We learnt that the diving around
Ibiza is the best in the Mediterranean because the water around there is
exceptionally clear and so we had great visibility. The sea floor is pretty
rocky but covered in all kinds of algae and sponges, as well as a sea grass
that is so ecologically important that UNESCO even recognises its role in the
I would have never thought that a
place where humans have lived so long would have so much wildlife. We saw a lot
of different fish, as well as some lobsters, but my favourite was a little
octopus! It was incredible and an experience which I will never forget.
When we got back, we were right back
into the hustle and bustle of the local restaurants and bars, as well as all
the activities the hotel had to offer. We especially enjoyed the variety of
restaurants and being able to go out for a drink so close to our hotel. The
Grand Palladium White Island Resort & Spa really offers the best of both
worlds, the wonderful nature and wilderness of the island and the social
activities and nightlife!
Despite all those indulgences, we
felt healthier and more relaxed than ever coming back, thanks to the Grand
Palladium Hotels & Resorts’ focus on healthy foods made from high quality
and often local ingredients. We also made the most of the swimming pools, as
well as the yoga and archery classes. Now that we’re back, we’re already
counting down the days until our next summer vacation.
