Hoteles con mucho ritmo

Hoteles con mucho ritmo

By Laura Martínez

As Bowie said: “Put on your red shoes and dance the blues.” At Concept, music is the soul of each hotel, with the sounds of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Funk, Disco, Balearic House, Swing and Cha-cha-chá providing each one
with a unique personality. Both the DJs that play in the hotels and the playlists perfectly sum up the vibe in each establishment.

 

Santos Ibiza

Your favourite artists of all time are elevated to the category of saints in Santos Ibiza, our celebrity temple dedicated to artists closely connected with Ibiza. This hotel’s soundtrack is full of Balearic house, disco, a little bit o’ deep and a whole
lotta downtempo. The music changes as the day progresses, starting at breakfast, which is enlivened with soul and bossa before giving way to Balearic sounds, house and funk in late morning. DJs take control of the afternoon, spinning deep house, nu-disco and funk, perfect for lying back on a sunbed while sipping a “Ain’t No Saint” cocktail.

Tropicana Ibiza

Mi-Mo aesthetics, vibrant colours and nods to “Cocktail,” (Tom Cruise’s classic 80s movie that makes you want to live in a bar forever) provide the inspiration for Tropicana, the hotel where you can sip on a cocktail while admiring the pool and the shower in the form of a Martini glass. Wrapped in a Miami Beach tropical ambience, its sound is a mix of “disco funk, tropical Jazz, 80’s vibes and bossa nova,” as defined by Simøne, the hotel’s resident DJ.

Dorado Ibiza

A love letter to the golden era of rock. This is the Dorado Ibiza’s statement of intent, backed up by the best in classic rock, folk, 70s and soul. This is a temple of Rock by the sea, where each of the hotel’s rooms is named after a song that went gold. Acclaimed artists such as Jim Morrison, Blondie and Bruce Springsteen have a room dedicated to them, and when the guest enters, the record which bears the room’s name starts to play on a turntable. The bathrooms are fitted with retro microphone heads so that guests can sing like a star while having a shower.

Music takes you to another place, and our hotels are designed to teleport you to Miami, Cuba or Nashville, without leaving Ibiza. Image and soundtrack have never been in such harmony.

Cubanito Ibiza

The flavour and character of Cuba are to be found in Cubanito hotel, with touches of Latin Jazz, Salsa, Boogaloo and Merengue. Jordi Cardona is in charge of putting rhythm to the eternal sunsets, (with a Mojito in hand) that take place on the rooftop of this little piece of Cuba in the Mediterranean. In addition, each Tuesday you can enjoy Salsero, our Salsa classes where you can give free rein to your hips. On Sundays, there are live performances from legends such as Ricardito, the “Cuban Julio Iglesias” who has sung with Celia Cruz and Juan Luis Guerra.

Romeo’s Motel & Diner

Everything that you’ve seen in the American films from the 50s, 60s and 70s is about to happen to you in Romeo’s Motel & Diner. Inspired by the ‘love motels’ on Route 66, Romeo’s is our most cinematographic hotel. It includes a specially designed room for getting up to no good doing bad things in, a 24-hour diner worthy of a Tarantino movie, and a chapel where you can get married, and divorced, on the same night – just like in Las Vegas. Folk, Americana, Classic Rock and a lot of 70s put the neon-lighted cherry on the top of your wildest adventure.

Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel

Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel is our very own pastel pink paradise, where both art and Art Deco aesthetics merge into a dreamlike space. What do these dreams sound like? Nu-Disco, Italo Disco, Balearic Beat and 80s Funk. An art gallery curated by Adda Gallery Paris, a tattoo studio, exhibitions in the lobby and a glass-walled room that isn’t for wallflowers… Ocean Drive in Miami would just love to do all this…

Siloé

Siloé

The band Siloé will broadcast live the recording of their new album Paradiso, from Suite Zero of the Paradiso Ibiza hotel.

The duo will stay for three days in the “Zero Suite”, which is a fully glazed room located in the reception area in view of the hotel’s clients.
The band will broadcast the experience through Youtube Live and IG Live in the purest “Big Brother” style, so that the public can know the whole process and get closer to their fans.

The Valladolid duo Siloé will visit the Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel, belonging to the businessman and hotelier, Diego Calvo, owner of the Ibiza Concept Hotel Group, to record their album. The album will be inspired by the hotel’s imagination: disco, house and synthwave music with the sonic essence of the band. It will also have stellar collaborations such as Bely Basarte and David Otero, among other artists, and producers such as Ale Acosta from Fuel Fandango, GARABATTO or PMP.
With the intention of also demonstrating the acoustic and electronic duality of the band, all the songs will also be released in an acoustic version and in a version remixed by a national DJ, joining all the songs at the end of their publication in a triple album: singles , acoustic versions and electronic remixes.

The group assures that it is one of the most interesting and fascinating challenges they have faced throughout their career. Staying in the “Suite Zero” (a glass-enclosed room in the hotel reception for any visitor to see) and recording your new album there, to be broadcast through a camera on YouTube Live and Instagram Live, is to recreate the experience of living a “Big Brother”, but creating a performance inside the hotel.

 

“We want to do something that goes beyond music. In the end life and the music industry is very similar to Big Brother or The Island of Temptations: either you know what your role is quickly so that people pay attention to you or you are out. “
Paradiso’s first single will be out in November and they will continue to release new ones throughout 2022 until completing the PARADISO EP album.

The Real Ones- Juanito

Love for Tradition

Joan Riera is Juanito to his friends, the endearing owner of the Ca n’Alfredo restaurant situated in the heart of Ibiza on Paseo Vara de Rey. It’s renowned as a meeting place and for its great food. It was awarded with the Gold Medal of Ibiza in 2010 and has been a flagship of traditional Ibizan cuisine since 1934. Ca n’Alfredo is about casual chats with friends after lunch, Saturday matança rice and flaó (cheesecake) with the family. It’s a home and a refuge, a place where you stop to say hello to Joan and give him your grandfather or your mother’s regards. He is the maître d’ of the restaurant and his wife, Catalina, is in charge of the kitchen. We’ll be chatting about culinary tradition and passion for a job well done. I suggest you read this interview after eating or be prepared to drool.

I get the feeling that Ibicencan cuisine doesn’t get the hype that Basque, Asturian or Canarian cuisine gets? I’d never heard of sofrit pagès (country sofrito) or greixonera in my life until I came to live here. It is one of the most elaborate and tasty cuisines in Spain, and I’m this is coming from a native of Asturias.
“Without a doubt. In the 70s, Ibiza had a massive influx of tourists and the island became filled with characterless restaurants, with Ibizan cuisine reduced down to just four traditional places. I consider myself a promoter of our culinary traditions and along with the Consell de Ibiza, we managed to create a brand called Sabors d’Eivissa (Flavours of Ibiza) that advocates local cuisine and produce. It really took off, and we have been present at countless food fairs such as Madrid Fusión. I’m proud to say that Ibizan cuisine is in rude health nowadays, with more quality as opposed to quantity on the island.”

 

As your friend and colleague Juan Mari Arzak mentions in the prologue of your book Ca n’Alfredo – History, Memories and Cuisine: “the commitment to human values is more important than the commitment to gastronomy.” Is attention and care just as important as quality cuisine?
“Juan Mari is a great friend of mine and he gave me the best recipe that anyone could give: “No te jubiles ni pa’ Dios”(Don’t retire, not even for God) This is a lifelong passion, and what makes me happiest is that people leave my restaurant with a big smile. It is in meeting a child who came here with his parents and then to see him again when he’s 40 years old with his wife and children sitting at the table. That makes me as proud as a peacock. Cuisine needs a lot of care, but you have to take even more care of your customers and friends.”

In the beginning, Ca n’Alfredo was called “Verner and Gertrudis” and was run by a German couple. It was later run by a German Jewish couple who came to Ibiza fleeing the Nazis. How did it end up in the hands of your father, Josep?
“Yes, the German Jewish couple were very hard-working. My father bought this place from them and they then set up a little hotel on the beach in San Antonio. They were the ones who originally gave the restaurant its name because they had 7 sons, with the eldest called Alfredo. Later I added Ca n’ (House of) and my eldest son is called Alfredo. I tried it later with some of my grandchildren, but they wouldn’t let me.”

What is the house speciality? The dish you have to order, no matter what.
“We make fantastic rice dishes and stews. I’m very proud of our baked fish and typical dishes such as sofrit pagès.”

I am surprised by the number of restaurants I’ve discovered on the island. There is a lot of competition. How do you manage to remain a reference point after so many years?
“It’s very complicated, I’m not going to lie. I think it is based on how much I love my job and a lot of perseverance. When you enjoy what you do and put your heart and soul into it… it can’t go wrong.”

The walls of your restaurant are decorated with photos of your most famous diners. Which person did you like but didn’t know who they were at first?
“Well, I remember a very tall and very nice guy who came to eat with his parents; Ricky Rubio, now he’s a star in the NBA, but when he came here he was just starting to make a name for himself in Barça’s basketball team. I’m a big football fan, but I don’t know anything about basketball. The kid loved our food and wanted to take a photo with the cooks, not the other way around!. Then I found out who he was and I’ve followed his meteoric rise to the top, which I’m most happy about.”

Your wife Catalina is in charge of the kitchen, so who controls the stove at home?
My wife! What I’m very good at is crispy fried eggs cooked at high heat, with some chips and sobrasada… yummy!

Preserving Ibiza

The environmental protection that the islands needs

By Laura Martínez

Ibiza is crying out for change. Tourism is our principal source of income, but this sector can’t continue to grow at the expense of our environment. This must be everyone’s concern because natural resources are a fundamental heritage for our wellbeing, and constitute added value for a prosperous and sustainable economy.

The prosperity of this unique island depends, to a large extent, on the protection of its territory, marine environment and biodiversity. We have to commit ourselves to this cause for the sake of everyone.

IbizaPreservation aims to raise awareness and improve our knowledge of socio-environmental issues while conserving Ibiza and Formentera’s extraordinary natural value. They aim to highlight priorities and influence actions to better protect the island, by building alliances and seeking consensus in order to develop solutions that engage all sectors.

In order to provide us with well-resourced information, IbizaPreservation created the Sustainability Observatory in 2018, which studies the evolution of sustainability on the island from a social and environmental perspective. The Observatory monitors these variations on an annual basis in order to help inform decision-making on the island’s future development.

At Concept, we are ever more aware of the need to protect the island’s environment, with the desire to promote tourism at its most sustainable. That’s why we will donate 10% of the proceeds from our Dorado Live Shows concerts to IbizaPreservation.

Misinformation is no longer an excuse for being irresponsible and disrespectful to the environment. We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy this natural paradise, and we have to get it into our heads that it will cease to exist if we don’t take care of it together.
