Every time I have the opportunity to experience a villa up close, a get a little nervous feeling in my stomach. Will it be what I hoped for? Will it live up to my expectations? The truth is, it takes me less and less time to find out, and with this villa it happened just within a the few seconds of stepping foot on it. Of course, I was already a little swayed just knowing that the villa was built on a large plot of 25,000 m2 right next to the renowned Cala Jondal, with its fantastic restaurants and top beach clubs like the Blue Marlin or the Tropicana Beach Club, where I loved eating at the tables on the sand.
While returning to the house, all of a sudden, I noticed the quality of the minimalistic architectural work and of the luxurious bohemian interior decoration. Those generous spaces really made me come alive, and they gave me the chance to enjoy myself to the fullest: the bleach-white contrasting with the green of the forest, the classic round-edged cactus garden and its charming nooks, the privacy of the six rooms with individual terraces, and the villa in general without neighbours and surrounded by pine tree woods and other green spaces.
Everything is meticulously thought out.
The 25-m swimming pool, where you swim towards a lying down Buddha who appears to be floating in the background; the exterior areas (600 m2) with their shady spots perfectly set up to combat the heat; the layout of the enormous living room and dining room, from which we saw more than one sunrise through the pine trees and more than one sunset reflecting off of Cala Jondal’s rocky wall, all while drinking down our Tropical Gin Fizzes; the bathtubs installed in the floor seeming to whisper ‘get in’ every time I walked by… everything was perfectly in sync with that Ibizan feel that the island has.
We lived spectacular moments of happiness in the Mandala Villa.
