Anyone who's been to Ibiza wants to stay forever. The light, the colours, the fascinating nature and the big heart of this small island. Ibiza is a destination of contrasts, a Mecca for clubbers, artists and trendsetters, but at the same time there's nowhere better to take a deep breath and relax. Away from the electric beats and disco rhythms, there are also peaceful oasis. The 5-star luxury boutique hotel Cas Gasi Ibiza is an almost magical retreat and a La Biosthétique partner hotel, so the rooms and wellness centre are packed with the right products to pamper both hair and skin.
At the heart of Ibiza in the picturesque village of Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera and just a few minutes' drive from the sea is the family-run, lovingly restored country house that is Cas Gasi Ibiza. Surrounded by four hectares of countryside, guests can enjoy the view of the seemingly endless Mediterranean landscape from one of the two swimming pools, the sun terrace or the veranda. Lose yourself in the beautiful olive and orange groves, pine forests, vegetable gardens and almond and fig trees. Here, you can feel Cas Gasi's beginnings as an ecological farm. Out of personal conviction and their love of nature, they produce most of their ingredients themselves and harvest them daily. The in-house chefs then turn them into exquisite dishes to satisfy every guest's culinary desire. A particular favourite is the cold-pressed olive oil.
The atmosphere at Cas Gasi Ibiza is authentic and welcoming. The focus is on relaxation and this starts from the moment guests enter the unique, elegantly furnished rooms and suites. Here, the dark wood tones, pure whites and typical terracotta-reds are paired with Moroccan elements. The experience is rounded off with selected accessories that each tell a fascinating story of the island.
A real highlight is the spacious bathroom which turns into your personal home spa with wellness products from the La Biosthétique SPA series. Le Bain shower/bath pampers your skin with valuable active ingredients from milk and yoghurt. And those who want to leave their stresses behind can enjoy a relaxing bath with Le Sel de Bain. Le Shampooing shampoo restores the natural moisture to your hair and scalp, while the hair is intensively nourished with Le Conditionneur. The Le Savon soap is perfect for a quick clean and protects the skin from drying out thanks to the oil-replenishing Shea butter. Le Lait body milk ensures a long-lasting care sensation. The pampering is rounded off with the wonderfully scented Spa Citromycine hand cream. If you like, you can also start your day with a free yoga class or a massage under the open sky. Fresh fruit from the hotel's own garden, and homemade jams and chutneys are just a selection of items from the delicious breakfast that awaits you.
A clear blue sky, not a single cloud and a wonderful atmosphere. Every day at the Cas Gasi Ibiza is like a day in paradise. But those who want to enjoy their entire holiday should invest in adequate sun protection. Soleil Spray Invisible SPF 30 from La Biosthétique is waterproof and protects your skin with a simple spray. Give extra protection to particularly sensitive areas like your face, shoulders or neck with Soleil Crème Solaire SPF 50+.
Soothe your soul, let your thoughts roam and forget the stresses of everyday life. The Cas Gasi Wellness Centre offers an absolutely perfect pampering and relaxation program. Enjoy the amazing view of the olive trees from the softly bubbling Jacuzzi. Space to dream. And for those who want to do some sport, next to the outdoor yoga platform there's also a gym which is fully-equipped with everything an athlete's heart desires. Afterwards, you can recover in the sauna or have a massage. As with all areas of the hotel, the wellness centre is decorated in a discreetly luxurious style with attention to detail.
Forget your surroundings. Just relax and enjoy. It's easy in the Cas Gasi spa. There are no prescribed rituals here. All guests receive the personalised treatment they desire. Perfectly tailored to their personal skin type.
