Marriott Tribute portfolio extends to Ibiza with design-led four-star Hotel Riomar
Located on the shores of dreamy Santa Eulalia Bay, Hotel Riomar, Ibiza, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel is surrounded by the island’s crystal-clear waters on one side, and idyllic rolling landscapes on the other. Situated on the water’s edge, the newly opened hotel will bring balance and serenity to any trip with it’s harmonious connection to nature.
Tribute Portfolio hotels aim to be hubs for guests and visitors alike, with “captivating design” and “vibrant social spaces,” as described in a press release from Marriott. Guests at Tribute properties tend to be those who spend the majority of their time outside of their rooms on vacation, but still want a stylish place to wind down in, that evening.
Discover the white isle’s serenity at Hotel Riomar, a modern boutique lifestyle hotel located at the idyllic Santa Eulalia Bay, after a comprehensive renovation. Designed with modern minimalist meets fifties and sixties eras in mind, the resort mimics tonal colours and textures of its natural surroundings, with vibrant warm tones, wooden panelling, captivating artwork and scalloped seating.
“The importance of Riomar Hotel is that it predates most of the surrounding town. Santa Eulalia is very conscious of how it develops so when we began the project we had to consider what we had and what we could do with the property. Our ambition is to develop in phases over several seasons, slowly revealing our overall vision of the experience that the hotel should be offering”, says Riomars Creative Director, Sichi Bon.
Hotel Riomar has joined the Tribute Portfolio, Marriott International’s new collection of independent, charming hotels, united by their passion for alluring design and their drive to create vibrant social scenes for visitors and Ibiza residents alike.
The 4-star Hotel Riomar comprises 116 rooms, including 4 suites, all completely remodelled with minimalist and contemporary aesthetics. Half of the rooms overlook Santa Eulalia Bay while the rest overlook Ibiza’s rural heritage, including the historic Puig de Missa. Guests are welcomed at the Lobby Lounge & Brasserie & Bar which leads to a roofed terrace by the beach.
The hotel’s pool terrace features sunbeds and ‘cabanas’ overlooking their TRIBE the ‘secret’ garden. In addition, sporty guests can enjoy the pleasure of exercising on the exclusive beach area, right in front of the hotel. Throughout the week there are a selection of wellness activities to partake in, including curated wellness experiences. Yoga on the beach, pilates and paddle boarding are highly recommended.
Even sun soaking on the loungers is a pleasurable experience for the soul, combined with multiple spots to bask, read a book or unwind. With highly attentive and welcoming staff, relaxing acoustic beats and the smell of the ocean air, you’ll never want to leave.
“We want to create a space with attitude and where people can connect. Hotel Riomar has been thought of for sharing, enjoying and connecting the customers to the island’s community”, Alejandro Cainzos, Marketing Director.
The Tribute Portfolio has welcomed Hotel Riomar in Ibiza and The HIYORI Chapter, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel alongside the Kamo River in Kyoto, Japan.
Stays at Hotel Riomar start from €160 per room, per night, but I would absolutely upgrade to the deluxe sea view for €207. All prices include a glorious breakfast spread and nothing truly matches up to waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean.
