Ibiza party resort declares WAR on noisy drunken holiday revellers by threatening to close clubs and bars in crackdown – Daily Mail

  • The clampdown in San Antonio will centre on West End, which has scores of bars

  • The ‘unacceptable’ noise level is 20 decibels higher than the permitted norm

Tourism chiefs in one of Ibiza‘s most popular holiday resorts are to get tough over its unwanted party image by declaring war on noise.

The clampdown in San Antonio, famous for its bars and nightclubs, is part of the island’s crackdown on drunken tourism and ‘uncivic behaviour’, a move reflected in Majorca.

Council leaders say local residents are fed up with the continuous noise at night which is hitting the ‘unacceptable’ level of 85.9 decibels.

The noise level is 20 decibels higher than the permitted norm and is somewhere between the noise emitted by a Boeing 737 one mile from landing and a diesel train at 45 mph.

Environmental officers have promised a continuous onslaught against businesses until the levels are brought down to 65 decibels per day and 55 per night.

Noise experts say 60 decibels is equal to conversation in a restaurant, office or background music or an air conditioning unit at 100ft.

The night-time level of 55 decibels is like a quiet suburb or conversation at home.

Bars and clubs which refuse to abide by new regulations will be closed, it has been warned.

The tough clampdown will centre on West End where scores of bars and clubs line four or five of the main streets and is widely known as the place to party.

The San Antonio council said that the area’s noise level at the moment is ‘unbearable’ and action has to be taken.

A series of checks and readings has already taken place and one of the first ideas is to turn the area into a Special Zone of Acoustic Protection.

It is hoped to make this declaration in November, ‘accompanied by a series of corrective measures aimed at alleviating the situation and a technical report that guarantees its impact,’ said a council spokesman.

San Antonio’s Councillor for the environment, Pablo Valdés said there was ‘no alternative’ because of the excessive noise levels being reached.

‘You have to be brave and approach the focus of the problems,’ he told Diario de Ibiza.

He says the noise has caused local people to move away from the centre, adding: ‘Not forgetting the disturbances of public order and the torrent of images of excesses in the streets summer after summer, which has generated a perception of the current tourist model as a hostile activity among the island population,’

Other measures include pedestrianisation of the zone to reduce traffic noise and stepped-up police controls. 

However, the local authority says both of these have already started and the high noise levels show no sign of abating.

‘All studies indicate that the limits have been exceeded,’ said the Mayor, Josep Tur. ‘The council cannot ignore the obvious.’

San Antonio council says it will also consider stopping the opening of new bars and clubs as they feel numbers are already at saturation point.

The council says the various clubs and bars in the area are fully aware of the proposals which are in addition to noise pollution controls planned by the Balearic Government.

It is claimed that some of the businesses are planning to shut up shop and some have already closed and moved out.

The new regulations are expected to come into force in time for the start of the summer 2018 season with a number of council officials already working full-time on the problem.

The party is just getting started in Ibiza – The Times

Whether it’s an uber-cool hotel you are looking for or a sleek party pad to buy, Ibiza appears to raise its game every season. Tourism rates and private-jet charter flights reached record levels last year, but this year’s figures are set to surpass them.

Never mind St Tropez, it is to Pacha in Ibiza where Saudi royals, supermodels and the stars of Spanish football’s La Liga head, with Bruce Springsteen, Noel Gallagher and Jade Jagger dropping anchor at next-door Formentera for lunch.

What’s keeping up the interest? The biggest event of the summer was the opening of Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, a partnership between the actor Robert de Niro and the renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa, in the increasingly upmarket Talamanca Bay. A pristine white and…

You don’t have to be a party animal to enjoy what Ibiza has to offer – Manchester Evening News

There’s nothing I love more than to visit a new place which challenges my preconceptions.

Say the words ‘Ibiza’ and ‘holiday’ in the same sentence and the mind conjures up a plethora of obvious cliches and images, such as all-night raves and alcohol-fuelled partygoers on stag and hen parties.

And while you can still certainly enjoy a lost weekend of alcohol and music nirvana in some of the biggest and wildest clubs on the continent, this Balearic Island is now as much about culture, history, architecture, food and relaxation as it is about creating your own ‘The Hangover’-style film experience.

Ibiza is now rightfully a destination for all ages and sensibilities, full of charm, elegance and most importantly glorious sunshine and idyllic beaches, with a few surprises around every corner.

After boarding the inaugural British Airways flight from Manchester Airport we soon land on the historic island, and a 20-minute taxi ride later we arrive at the Palladium Hotel in Cala Llonga.

Set in the rocky cliffs overlooking the pristine Cala Llonga bay with its glacier clear waters, this adults-only four-star hotel is the perfect place from which to begin your island adventure.

Situated just outside the hustle and bustle of Ibiza Town, the hotel offers everything you could need after a long days exploration or indeed to keep yourself pampered and entertained on a lazy hot day.

Palladium Hotel Cala Llonga

Our first excursion was to the top of Ibiza’s ‘Old Town’ UNESCO World Heritage site which offers stunning panoramic views of the harbour, Mediterranean Sea and Ibiza’s breathtaking landscape – an essential spot for snapping your next social media profile or cover picture.

After navigating our way down through the maze of narrow, winding, cobbled streets (sensible shoes are recommended) we arrive at the centre of Ibiza Town itself.

This is a Mecca for shopping with everything from international brands and talented young designers to unique handcrafted pieces and markets with stalls that are like small trend laboratories.

Palladium Hotel Cala Llonga

If the stunning scenery is a feast for the eyes then the fantastic mixed aromas of sumptuous local cuisine, the fresh sea air and the perennial smell of pine trees will have your other senses tingling.

Those who love to ‘people watch’ will also be in their element here with dozens of bars and restaurants and little hideaways along the sea front to watch the world slowly go by.

One of Ibiza’s hottest new attractions is Europe’s first Hard Rock Hotel.

The five-star resort, set on the pale sands of Playa d’en Bossa beach, has become a hotspot for celebrities and worldwide personalities and boasts an impressive array of rock star touches, hallmarks and iconic memorabilia.

Ushuaia Beach Club

The hotel is also home to Ibiza’s highest rooftop terrace – The Ninth – which is a classy, chic sky lounge with spectacular views of the coastline and is the perfect vantage point from which to take in the magnetic sunsets and burning skylines. Standing in The Ninth, so high off the ground and surrounded by flawless blue sea and skies, really makes you feel like you are flying through the air or floating in the middle of the ocean.

If you want to taste the best Spanish cuisine that the island has to offer then get suited and booted and head to the new Tatel restaurant on the ground floor of the Hard Rock Hotel.

Tatel restaurant in the Hard Rock Hotel .

Tatel has the atmosphere and decor of a 1920s speakeasy, but with the eclectic charm and lively buzz of a Spanish restaurant.

The food is absolutely to die for with unparalleled levels of service and attention to detail. This is an absolute ‘must see’ destination and worthwhile treat for any holidaymaker. After an evening of wining and dining, what better way to help the body revitalize than a relaxing massage and spa treatment at the Hard Rock Hotel’s very own lavish Rock Spa?

Hard Rock Hotel Rock Spa

Starting off with a heavenly hour-long ‘Synchronicity’ full-body massage, visitors can then immerse themselves in the indulgent and healing offerings of the Spa’s aqua circuit featuring various thermal pools, saunas and spa tubs.

If you are wanting to sample the world-renowned party atmosphere that Ibiza has to offer before heading back to the UK then right next door to the Hard Rocket Hotel is the Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel – home to some of the worlds biggest DJs. This is the place to be seen for the fashionista crowd and is the ultimate hedonistic party venue pit stop for revellers.

Situated by the sea is the Ushuaïa Beach Club, which is part of the hotel and is an A-list hangout featuring some of the most beautiful men and women on the island. However, the attraction isn’t only skin deep with the club offering a tantalizing menu of food and drink to while away your day.

Tatel has the atmosphere and decor of a 1920s speakeasy, but with the eclectic charm and lively buzz of a Spanish restaurant.

The food is absolutely to die for with unparalleled levels of service and attention to detail. This is an absolute ‘must see’ destination and worthwhile treat for any holidaymaker. After an evening of wining and dining, what better way to help the body revitalize than a relaxing massage and spa treatment at the Hard Rock Hotel’s very own lavish Rock Spa?

Starting off with a heavenly hour-long ‘Synchronicity’ full-body massage, visitors can then immerse themselves in the indulgent and healing offerings of the Spa’s aqua circuit featuring various thermal pools, saunas and spa tubs.

If you are wanting to sample the world-renowned party atmosphere that Ibiza has to offer before heading back to the UK then right next door to the Hard Rocket Hotel is the Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel – home to some of the worlds biggest DJs. This is the place to be seen for the fashionista crowd and is the ultimate hedonistic party venue pit stop for revellers.

Situated by the sea is the Ushuaïa Beach Club, which is part of the hotel and is an A-list hangout featuring some of the most beautiful men and women on the island. However, the attraction isn’t only skin deep with the club offering a tantalizing menu of food and drink to while away your day.

You don’t have to be a party animal to enjoy what Ibiza has to offer – Manchester Evening News

There’s nothing I love more than to visit a new place which challenges my preconceptions.

Say the words ‘Ibiza’ and ‘holiday’ in the same sentence and the mind conjures up a plethora of obvious cliches and images, such as all-night raves and alcohol-fuelled partygoers on stag and hen parties.

And while you can still certainly enjoy a lost weekend of alcohol and music nirvana in some of the biggest and wildest clubs on the continent, this Balearic Island is now as much about culture, history, architecture, food and relaxation as it is about creating your own ‘The Hangover’-style film experience.

Ibiza is now rightfully a destination for all ages and sensibilities, full of charm, elegance and most importantly glorious sunshine and idyllic beaches, with a few surprises around every corner.

After boarding the inaugural British Airways flight from Manchester Airport we soon land on the historic island, and a 20-minute taxi ride later we arrive at the Palladium Hotel in Cala Llonga.

Set in the rocky cliffs overlooking the pristine Cala Llonga bay with its glacier clear waters, this adults-only four-star hotel is the perfect place from which to begin your island adventure.

Situated just outside the hustle and bustle of Ibiza Town, the hotel offers everything you could need after a long days exploration or indeed to keep yourself pampered and entertained on a lazy hot day.

Palladium Hotel Cala Llonga

Our first excursion was to the top of Ibiza’s ‘Old Town’ UNESCO World Heritage site which offers stunning panoramic views of the harbour, Mediterranean Sea and Ibiza’s breathtaking landscape – an essential spot for snapping your next social media profile or cover picture.

After navigating our way down through the maze of narrow, winding, cobbled streets (sensible shoes are recommended) we arrive at the centre of Ibiza Town itself.

This is a Mecca for shopping with everything from international brands and talented young designers to unique handcrafted pieces and markets with stalls that are like small trend laboratories.

Palladium Hotel Cala Llonga

If the stunning scenery is a feast for the eyes then the fantastic mixed aromas of sumptuous local cuisine, the fresh sea air and the perennial smell of pine trees will have your other senses tingling.

Those who love to ‘people watch’ will also be in their element here with dozens of bars and restaurants and little hideaways along the sea front to watch the world slowly go by.

One of Ibiza’s hottest new attractions is Europe’s first Hard Rock Hotel.

The five-star resort, set on the pale sands of Playa d’en Bossa beach, has become a hotspot for celebrities and worldwide personalities and boasts an impressive array of rock star touches, hallmarks and iconic memorabilia.

The hotel is also home to Ibiza’s highest rooftop terrace – The Ninth – which is a classy, chic sky lounge with spectacular views of the coastline and is the perfect vantage point from which to take in the magnetic sunsets and burning skylines. Standing in The Ninth, so high off the ground and surrounded by flawless blue sea and skies, really makes you feel like you are flying through the air or floating in the middle of the ocean.
