Most of the countryside places in Ibiza are more rustic, full of old stonework and creaking doors. But this is an entirely more polished and handsome event – contemporary, artsy and original. Its full of textures, wooden walls, pebbles set in floors and lots of concrete – a little bit Bali, a little bit Moorish, but entirely rich and warm. The old building, which has only five rooms, is attached to the local police station (but relax, people, its vacant) and this too will soon become part of the hotel. Most people seem to do one big night in Pacha or Amnesia, then chill out here for four days. No one gets up before 10am, when there are excitable breakfasts with Bloody Marys and platters of pineapple and strawberries. The pool is quiet and sleek and lovely, with views over the olive and almonds trees. Wander into the kitchen and ask for coffee and pancakes, and if you want supper at the house, the staff will get you something fresh from the marked and cook it up for you that night. There is a treatment room that houses a therapist – somewhat hippie-dippy and full of ayurvedic and Thai know-how, he will give you quite possible the best massage ever.

With just five suites on the edge of the whitewashed village of San Juan, in the island’s tranquil northeast, The Giri affords guests the lavish Ibiza villa experience without the need for a second mortgage. Despite its Spanish pedigree (it occupies a 150-year-old finca), the hotel has a Balinese look. Grounds are dotted with palms and gazebos, while inside, texture is a major design feature: The Almendra suite, for example, has driftwood walls, an antique carved wood door in the lounge, and a bathroom with stone basins, slate tiles, and a pebble-floor shower. The villa vibe extends to meals – you decide where and when you wish to eat: Share the inlaid-mother-of-pearl table in the casual dining room with young European honeymooners and music-industry Americans; snag a table by the 50-foot pool; or find a nook in the garden. Food quality is a bit uneven, ranging from an excellent gazpacho to a prawn cocktail that’s too heavy on the mayo. Despite the small number of guests, the staff can seem a little harassed. Still, the artsy decor, a concierge who can arrange everything from Pilates instruction to private flights, and the spa make this a great – and refreshingly affordable – choice for a restful stay far from the megaclub mayhem. Which room to book: The second-floor Bourgainville Suite is the largest, with a fireplace, a private terrace overlooking the village, and a freestanding stone tub.

Newly opened this summer, the Giri is perfectly positioned: it’s in the quiet north of the island, yet near enough to the buzzing Hollywood Mile to make nights out a breeze. The decor is Bali-beautiful: ancient carved doors complement walls crafted from slices of recycled timber and pebble-studded floors. There are just five rooms, so you’ll soon feel as if you own the place, and with made-to-order dinners (the staff will go shopping just for you) nibbled in gazebos in the garden, returning to your real home will be a wrench.
