I had read in the Condé Nast Traveller that Ace Villa was one of the island’s most exclusive properties, so I decided to see for myself, and I think their description fell short. It is undoubtedly one of the best villas in the entire Mediterranean.
This exclusivity is partly because of its location, as you find yourself nestled in your own private mountain with a level of privacy that’s difficult to find these days. The views are also quite a privilege because of their great range. I spent good times watching the sun’s reflections on the natural Las Salinas park, the twinkling of the night in Dalt Villa, or the yachts and sailboats cruising around the sea with the silhouette of Formentera in the background.
I felt the true exclusivity with the services included with the villa. A staff made up of nine discreet and impeccably uniformed waiters, a chef, a concierge, a bartender, a housekeeper, and a maid presented us with an authentic five star hotel service. They prepared us lunches and dinners with an unbeatable presentation, treated us to the best cocktails and mixed drinks, and brought us the most delicious room service breakfasts, all while always being entirely professional and maintaining discretion.
The accommodation itself is as tremendously spacious inside (500 m2) as outside (600 m2 + the pine tree forest) and allowed us to dine or have parties in various corners of the house, for example, on the rooftop terrace where we held and exceptional seafood dinner for thirty of our friends. It doesn’t surprise me that they say this house is iconic for private parties in Ibiza (the concierge told me they allow for parties of up to one hundred people). This is easily conceivable given the twelve terraces, the large 32-m pool (with a waterfall, cave, floating cabana, and even a perfect refreshing misting system), the Jacuzzis, the disco area with subaquatic windows, the sound systems, the wonderful hammocks, or the luxurious interior spaces. All of this treated us to an amazing time filled with unique moments of happiness and constant celebration.
The eight modern and minimalist rooms were incredibly detailed in every aspect; even art and comfort were combined in harmony. Minibars, a Jacuzzi with a panoramic view, chimneys, private terraces, sound systems, satellite TV, and a few beds where I slept like an angel after enjoying all the wonders the island has to offer.
It’s true that Ibiza provides infinite possibilities, but if you experience the island from this unparalleled viewpoint, you change the rules of the game. For me, it’s like starting a game of bridge already knowing where all the cards are. You’re guaranteed to win.
