The Vengaboys were my first and only experience of Ibiza. From an early age I’ve considered Ibiza to be the holiday destination for hardcore party people, and I’m about as hardcore as a Wellington boot. where
This punk-punctuated promo video of smiling faces, live music, dreamy spas, and food that could make a woman lick a computer screen (we all watch videos in different ways, eh?) may have just changed my mind.
Fresh off a holiday in Mallorca, the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza got in touch to see if I would be interested in helping them promote their first European Hard Rock Hotel. As timing goes, they couldn’t have done much better; I managed to have an amazing and rather charming time on an island famed for ‘Sun, Sex, and Suspicious Parents’ (shout out to Magaluf). The Hard Rock Ibiza was bound to be more than all-nighters, bargain shots, and dancing with strangers, too.
The Hard Rock Hotel is luxury Ibiza and – as the name suggests – a base fit for a rockstar vacation. Situated beachside of the Playa d’en Bossa, the hotel has welcomed the likes of UB40, Robin Thicke, and legendary DJ duo to entertain the hotel’s patrons, with appearances from Icona Pop, Jason Derulo, Ellie Goulding, Snoop Dogg, Kylie Minogue, and Placebo scheduled throughout the summer.
If anything was ever going to get me to Ibiza, this hotel was it.
