When planning the ultimate Ibiza Weekender for your best friends hen do (bachelorette party for all of our American readers) for you and 14 other sassy ladies you know you’ve got to make it a weekend that will be remembered for all the right reasons.
Over the next four days you’re invited to come on a journey as we relive the wildest but cutest bank holiday weekend we’ve all had in a long time.
We’re going to start this epic guide to the ultimate hen party weekend in Ibiza off with the soft launch of Ocean Beach Club on Saturday afternoon.
If you’ve never been to Ibiza or you’ve never heard of Ocean Beach then you totally need to head over to their site or socials to check them out.
Think glam, think sparkle, think over the top, think beautiful people, think people watching and think a whole lot of daytime fun.
Situated on the front strip connecting the West End to the Egg (Huevo in Spanish) you’ll pass Linekars, Ibiza Rocks and a whole host of other globally known hotspots before arriving at the most well know day club on the island.
With a walkway up to the entrance of dreams, subtle florals hang overhead, and the sounds coming from the DJ booth will have you walking double time to the concierge desk. Check in with the gorgeous hosts before checking out the Ocean Beach Boutique. Filled with merchandise, the most glam swimwear and coverups as well as home decor items to remind you of the best day at the world’s greatest collection of beach clubs.
As you enter Ocean Beach with a long and well-stocked bar to your left you’re blinded by the pristine white juxtaposed with the colour popping orange of the Ocean Beach branding. With Gary Linker’s (in my opinion) more handsome older brother, Wayne having a share in the beach club (and most of the island for that matter) it’s all about the luxe lifestyle here at the beach.
Shown to our circular white beds dressed with Havana Club leather pillows and Ocean Beach towels, a well stocked wooden side unit with the iconic orange Veuve Clicquot champagne flutes and Ocean Beach tumblers. Let me let you into a little secret, there’s a bag storage area in this side unit too. Nobody wants to have all that mess around them when they’re trying to look beautiful right? Making ourselves at home we headed for the bar. Usually, with beds you get drink service to your day bed, in this case, the Ocean Beach team did think that we’d be better heading to the bar ourselves with there being 15 of us. We have to agree!
Nothing short of glam the order of the day was Absolut Elyx Copper Pineapples filled with their light, fruity and refreshing signature cocktail served in the most gorgeous and Instagram worthy pineapples. Available in a larger pineapple and copper flamingo I really loved the showmanship of this gorgeous drink and Absolut has always been one of my most favourite brands of vodka.
Heading back to our day beds we began to soak up the first of the seasons Ibizan sunshine whilst doing some people watching. The people here are absolutely fabulous and Raoult, a professional dancer from Brazil who had come to the club alone was absolutely sensational. You really must check out his moves here.
If you’re a people watcher and that has wet your appetite, admittedly there’s no better place to do it than right here. With plenty of beautiful people, all dancing to the sounds of the DJ booth nearby the bar your afternoon turns into evening instantaneously.
If you’re brave enough why not take a swim (or a toe dip) into the 600m2 sprawling pool area, where all around the edge becomes the unwritten communal dance floor. Watch out for the spray jets which periodically shoot out from the side of the pool and into the water. I certainly wasn’t chancing an Ocean Spray with them!
Not solely just a bar, pool and DJ booth, Ocean Beach also boasts their own restaurant where they serve up a feast of traditional and favourite dishes, hailed as fashion fusion food. Serving up a tasty food menu from tapas style hummus and nachos to full meals such as burger and chips. Of course, they’re high quality, fresh ingredients and served at your day bed with simply the best presentation or over at their dining area nearby the bar. Just watch out for the jalapeños, those suckers are hot!
With different levels of occupancy from sun loungers to VIP cabanas, there’s something for every party size. It’s a great hen party day adventure and the 14 other hens thoroughly enjoyed their day in the orange Sun.
Ocean Beach also offers a sunset roof garden which the name speaks for itself. This beautiful haven is a perfect place to capture the last views of the day before witnessing the most beautiful sunset in the world. That’s a fact.
After a few hours of looking absolutely fabulous, sipping champagne and enjoying the sights and sounds Ocean has to offer why not book in for a massage with one of Ocean Beach Club’s trained therapists? They’re on hand to relax and rejuvenate you after all your partying and will have you ready for round two in no time.
If you’re looking for all the luxury of Ocean Beach Ibiza without being in amongst the party atmosphere then Pearl, their little-hidden gin bar is perfect for looking down onto all of the action of the club, absorbing the atmosphere whilst capturing the sea views.
Regardless of anything if you’ve been to Ocean Beach Club in Ibiza and you’re heading there this session it is somewhere you certainly should have ticked off your bucket list.
