The Ibiza Beach Club

Featured alongside the high ratings given by customers to Ibiza Beach Club were commendations on the superb quality of food, friendly and dependable service, relaxing ambiance and exceptional nightly entertainment.

Dubbed as the most hip and happening destination in the area, Ibiza is the go-to party and entertainment venue that’s frequented by locals, tourists, celebrities and socialites. Combining the elements of ambience, music, entertainment and dining, this beachside social establishment is set to impress and delight, with an unforgettable experience that’s uniquely its own.


The Ibiza Beach Club

Aside from its spectacular ocean views and architectural design of today’s urban luxe, the night scene at Ibiza Beach Club takes its charm and sophistication from a combination of visual and musical elements. Here, guests are not only attuned to the latest and most danceable beats, but also treated to a wide variety of cocktails and a Mediterranean feast of tapas and Balearic-style churrasco, plus a showcase of world-class talents.


Balearic-style Churrasco

It all starts with sunset sessions from 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm, the golden hours when guests can still get a good tan as they sip some cocktails, relax to cool beats and chill out along the net pods.

Come dinner time, everyone is welcomed to dine in their chic resort outfit or swimsuit, socialise between sips and nibbles, and take a cool dip in the outdoor pool. The indoor space, called the Conservatory, offers a more exclusive feel for any dinner date, complemented with spectacular ocean views. Guests sit and “meat” through dinner, either with tapas served à la carte or the 13-course Balearic-style churrasco, which is best paired with a variety of award-winning Manny O. wines.


The indoor area of Ibiza Beach Club

The highlight of the evening is the nightly performances by the Ibiza show team, featuring an hour of visual treat with live singing and dancing to retro pop, disco and Latin music, as well as movie musical sequences alongside daring fire exhibitions.

The Chelsea Flower Show in London, one of the most prestigious horticultural events in the world, returned in full glory in May 2023, captivating visitors with its stunning displays and landscape designs. Held annually on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, this year’s show proved to be a true feast for the senses, showcasing an array of breathtaking gardens, vibrant floral arrangements, and innovative landscaping. The 3-day event showcased 36 outdoor gardens, including four balcony gardens for small spaces. Inside the giant pavilion, blooms compete with each other, exotic flowers, roses, and many more.

The 2023 Chelsea Flower Show embraced a Nature’s Harmony theme, with a strong focus on sustainability and mental health. The show’s organizers emphasized the importance of sustainable gardening practices and biodiversity conservation, inspiring attendees to create beautiful outdoor spaces while preserving and protecting the environment.

What’s Cebu got to do with the Chelsea Flower Show in London? One person. James Doran Webb (, an Englishman working with driftwood, has been displaying his artworks for several years. James collects cast-off driftwood and shapes them into beautiful animal shapes that find places in some of the most iconic gardens. Leaping horses, owls, reindeer, and the occasional dragon, James Webb’s creations are avidly collected by landscapers to add accent to gardens in all sizes, using cast-off wood, fitting perfectly with the sustainable element—something Mr. Webb has done quite well for the last decade.
