Our Eco Philosophy
Striving towards sustainability and limiting our impact on the environment
Ibiza Retreats has partnered with the Ibiza Preservation Foundation to help rejuvenate the island’s flora and enhance the local eco-system by supporting the planting of flowers for bees and sponsoring the care of almond trees – one of Ibiza’s native species that need extra care due to the ever-decreasing water.
* Holistic Care for our island – giving back and offsetting the air miles
Our hearts are crying out to reset the environmental balance of our island that gives so much to all of us – and to offset the Carbon footprint from the air-miles travelled by our retreat guests flying in to Ibiza for retreats. So…. from 1st September 2019 we have pledged to donate 10 euros for each guest that comes on retreat with us – and are really excited about the two projects that we have chosen – to increase the bio-diversity of our island and to actively contribute to the production of local produce which we can all enjoy on our retreats.

* Think Global, Eat Local – and plastic-free!
We are also passionate about using local produce and mindful consumption of energy resources.
Since 2019, our culinary team of conscious chefs have been guided by Gaby Gambina, talented health-chef and founder of Ibiza Produce.org to locally source as much of the food we are serving as possible, from this fantastic island network of organic farmers and food suppliers – diminishing the use of plastic and sourcing and offering you the best and freshest seasonal local produce as it simply is the healthiest and most environmentally harmonious option!
Mother nature gives us the fruit and vegetables that provide the minerals, vitamins and nutrients that we need for our optimum nutrition in each changing season whilst negating the need for plastic packaging. We are seeking to eliminate plastic from the food-and-water supply chain on our retreats completely by 2021.
* Solar Heating for our Water
In the winter we have to add some electricity to boost the heating of the water for your showers BUT in spring/summer and early autumn, we are happy to be able to mostly rely on the Solar system to give you the warming and refreshing morning wash!
We invite all of our guests to practice good Water Karma by keeping showers short and sweet, and to avoid running taps for longer than needed. We also wash towels only on request in line with other 5 star hotels on the island.
