“An intimate, glamourous finca with impeccable staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2010

The Giri Residence is a truly lovely all suite, boutique hotel with just 5 rooms. It's like a little bit of Miami without the attitude and the posing. The Danish owner Lars, and his staff Paolo and Joel could not be more helpful, insisting you treat the hotel as your home. The hotel is an old school in a small village in the North East of the island, which is wild and unspoilt with pretty, sandy beaches. One can see why the hippy communities came in the 60's and stayed.

The suites in the hotel are all based around a central dining and relaxation area - with a long, shared dining table and sofas. The food menu is not huge but Joel offered to cook anything we wanted for dinners if we let him know in the morning so you can't really pick holes in that! There were specials on each day and the cooking was great - big portions of sea bass, lamb confit or steak. There's a definite family vibe to the shared living space and plenty of lounging areas in the courtyard and around the pool. The pool is long, but narrow and in October freezing! There is a lovely inside spa area with a jacuzzi, which becomes a private spa when you book a massage. We had read that the weather would still be good in October but unfortunately it rained for most of our stay. We'll definitely be back to the Giri when we can be sure of sun.

We stayed at the Giri at the end of the summer for a few days to relax, see the quieter parts of Ibiza, and be spoilt. The hotel's care was outstanding and with only five rooms it seemed very peacefull. We had breakfast on our own in a beautiful courtyard by our room.The staff gave good advce regarding beaches and restaurants.We had dinner at the Giri once and the menu was discussed at breakfast anything was possible and the result was excellent.
A real find and I would recomend the Giri unreservedley.

My wife and myself spent an excellent week in Ibiza at the Giri residence. The Jasmin room where we stayed is very cosyly decorated in a Nort African and Balinese style. The room is perfect for a couple and is warmly furnished with a magnificent bathtub (a piece of art) at the left when entering the room. The king size bed with excellent pillows assures a good night sleep. There are pleanty of towels, great smelling soaps and shampoos. The shower with toilet is linked to the room and archtectured with the finest material. The residence itself is beautiful with well designed living areas, a tidy and extremely well kept pool and a great garden area with balinese huts. The staff is very friendly and professional. Don not hesitate to exchange with them and they will give you all information and "tips" to spend a great time in Ibiza. We enjoyed especially the beaches of Aguas Blancas which are very close to the hotel. Enjoy your stay at the Giri residence, we sure did...

Perched on the edge of a lovely village, the Giri really succeeds in its aim of feeling more like a home than a hotel. The staff are crucial to this, so friendly. The food is amazing, the cocktails punchy, and the balinese huts perfect for happily blending sundowners into supper. Located up in the greener and more relaxed north of the Island, so a more chilled vibe than the slightly hectic south, yet so easy to get anywhere on the island within 30 mins, so hiring a car is worth it. Go and enjoy.

Attended soft-opening arrangement and stayed at the hotel for only one night. The place just opened, so all fresh and new. Surprised to see the location unfold. With the back of the house a bit secretly located more or less in the middle of the village of San Juan, but with the other side of the building positioned quiet and private in the middle of green fields. It’s a great location. Especially if you fancy the combination of secluded poolside luxury and white Ibiza village 30 seconds away. Even though I have been several times in Ibiza I never went to San Juan before. I can only say its wonderful and very authentic, probably like Ibiza mostly looked like 40 years ago. At the time I was in The Giri there were some details still to be fixed, procedures not completely in order and one or two malfunctions in the room – but it was pre-opening and overall this place will be a hit. The styling and interiors were great and can only get spectacular when completely done. Staff very friendly...felt like visiting a private home. Can’t wait to get back in August.
