OKU Ibiza, which is set to open in May 2021, is a Balearic retreat on the south west of the island home to one of the largest pools on the island, and just a moment’s walk from the beautiful Cala Gracio bay and beaches. Inspired by nature and barefoot living, the laid-back hotel is designed with slow living and enriching experiences at its heart. The hotel will offer 189 guest rooms and suites as well as a luxury 4-bedroom private villa, which is perfect for those looking for the utmost privacy.
