Formentera is a small, wild and romantic paradise made of turquoise waters and white sandy beaches to reach by scooter or quad, with the wind in your hair.
Cozy, trendy and lively, Ibiza’s little sister is once again one of the most popular summer destinations.
Formentera is the place of relaxed luxury, something informal and chic at the same time.
It’s the place of the chiringuitos where you can gather to admire la puesta del sol …the famous sunsets of Formentera, and it is also the shelter to move to, when Ibiza vibe becomes too phrenetics (Kate Moss docet).
And if the island is well known for the abundance of sumptuous villas and lavish yachts docked in its bays, we have spotted for you the coolest hotels in Formentera, the best places where you can relax between a dip in the Med, a drink and a massage:
GECKO Hotel and Beach club
If your next holiday wish-list in Formentera includes:
A magnificent white sandy beach just outside your room, maybe with a chiringuito where to refresh with excellent drinks,

a daily yoga practice with the sea breeze,

ES MARES Hotel & Spa
There are places that relax you as soon as you walk in.
Es Marès is one of these.
It may be for the choice of the palette colors and materials, a bright white perfectly matched to light wood and to the local stone,
it may be for the intimate garden with swimming pool, where to relax with a good book
or probably for the spa where to regenerate and recover energy before going out party.
Es Marès is this and much more.
It is a minimalist shelter with a relaxing atmosphere, perfectly integrated in the surrounding environment, with a restaurant where you can taste a refined avant-garde Mediterranean cuisine.
ES RAM Eco Resort
Sometimes we travel with the simple need to detach, isolate ourselves, maybe in an oasis of charme, far from the social life and noises.
In Formentera this is also possible.
Dipped in a wild nature, Es Ram is an eco resort hidden in the Mediterranean maquis.
There is no beach but a beautiful cliff that gives breathtaking views.
The rooms and villas are simple and comfortable and the food is excellent.
You are in an enchanted refuge where privacy reigns supreme.
You can relax on the canopies scattered in the pinewood and admire the sunset.
You can easily spend entire days without feeling the need to escape from the resort.
Es Ram is the ideal place to become isolated from everything, for experiencing Formentera as a retreat of seclusion and connection with nature.
CAN AISHA Apartments
A small oasis of peace and elegance just a few minutes from the movement of Es Pujols, Can Aisha is a charming bed and breakfast with a unique taste.
An intimate place, with only 5 very spacious rooms, furnished with style, surrounded by a private garden and a lovely flowering pergola.
The rich and tasty breakfast is served in the garden, in a relaxed environment with great attention to details.
Can Aisha is a magical place, where you can savor true relaxation, abandoned on the lounge-chairs by the pool and lulled by a pleasant chillout music soundtrack.
Casa Daniela is a special villa, because it is the creature born from the taste of Daniela Cavestany – stylist – and her husband Jordi Canosa – interior photographer.
Its minimalist structure rises in the rugged and wild Med maquis, like a geometric shell that hides a softened place, rich in details to discover.
The interiors are decorated in a sublime way, with a mix of natural materials and neutral tones, sometimes caressed by some delicate touch of lavender …as a fresh breeze that comes from the windows.
Outside the swimming pool, the porches, the scent of the aromatic plants.
Casa Daniela is an exclusive villa, with an hippy chic taste, a real dive in the style.
