Almost everyone that doesn’t reside there has at least once in their life, thought about what it would be like to vacation in Spain. It sounds ideal; lounging around in your bathing suit in front of clear blue water, tanning under the sun, and living in the most luxurious and relaxing suites with the most incredible view from your window. La Masia boutique apartments located in Formentera, captures your dream vacation and brings it to life with their Boho-Chic inspired hotel apartments. Spending only a couple of nights there will fulfill all your needs to relax and be catered to in the most chic way possible, helping you escape the hustle of everyday life and convert your days into some of the best you will ever have.
Located between the capital of Sant Francesc and the town of Sant Ferran, La Masia is situated perfectly in between nature that makes it feel like you are in heaven on earth, and is only a few kilometers away from the only access point to the Island.
While every moment of the weekend spent at the hotel was better than the next, La Masia ensures through their services and facilities that your stay at the hotel is difficult to forget. With facilities like yoga classes that let you tap into your zen, an exquisite breakfast spread with traditional Spanish breakfast foods as well as your breakfast classics, fresh fruit juices that are the best of Spain, and a homely and architecturally-sound swimming pool as well as classic, boho inspired interiors, these are just some of the many more facilities and services that they cater to you.
The rooms in La Masia are just as luxurious and comforting as the rest of the hotel, with the best experience gained, is the one where you indulge in the Deluxe Apartment. Complete with a breathtaking view of the lakes of Ibiza from the beautifully designed terrace, the two-floor spacious room is definitely the best room in the hotel. Just like all other rooms in the hotel, the Deluxe Apartment provides full time air conditioning, added to a Nespresso coffee machine, bathrobes and slippers for your vacation-themed instagram posts, as well as a living room with a 32” TV, a kitchen with all necessary appliances, and a bathroom with hair dryers and other toiletries so that you can save luggage space! The bedroom comes with the same facilities, making it difficult for you to want to leave the room and experience the beauty that surrounds the hotel. Where luxury meets comfort and solace, La Masia gives you the best of both worlds by providing you with a home away from home, as their designs and services make it very easy for you to make this place your home!
La Masia is a business run by a small family, who incorporated elements through design and artifacts that made each corner of the hotel feel personal, to themselves as well as their guests! During our stay, we had the chance to interview the owner Leandro, who was more than willing to share the stories behind his inspiration that is La Masia!
1) What is the idea behind La Masia?
At La Masía, we want you to feel right at home. That is why we dedicate ourselves to cultivating a warm, enveloping atmosphere and welcoming clients as long-awaited beloved guests. All of that so they can relax, enjoy being in a harmonious atmosphere that is close to nature and respectful of its rhythms. We are all about creating the perfect base in order to rest here or explore the beautiful island of Formentera. Our attention to details, from the natural decoration to how we put the spoon next to your coffee, is aimed at making you feel at peace and welcomed. Giving outstanding service is what we are about – and to us, that includes not only serving our guests as best we can, but we also deeply believe in serving the Earth and future generations. We are profoundly committed to reducing the use of precious resources like water and plastic and investing in recycling and reusing.
2) Why did you choose Formentera among other beautiful places of Spain?
We opened our doors in Formentera because home is where the heart is… and where the family is. La Masía is family-owned, and it is located on the island because that is where my family lives. Although we are originally from Argentina, we settled here in the 80ies. We were attracted to the freedom of the island, its hippie-chic casual and worry-free ambiance and its natural richness where you are surrounded by bountiful nature and pristine seas. The all-encompassing embrace of the island is like nowhere else in the world, with the sea winking at you and beckoning, always right around the corner.
3) What would you recommend to do while staying in La Masia?
We would welcome you to enjoy the many pleasures offered by our facilities. Each and every apartment has its own private terrace where one can enjoy personal moments with their loved ones or take a sun bath on their own. One could also choose to visit the pool area and have fun swimming in the pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi or lounging while sipping a delicious cold drink (that always comes in a glass bottle – we are plastic-free!). It is also possible to work out, meditate or do yoga on our meditation deck, under the watchful eye of the large Buddha fountain. Coming soon: freshly-squeezed cold press juices to be enjoyed by the poolside!
4) Your top attractions in Formentera?
Of course, the island is renowned as one of the places with the clearest water in the world. Luckily, it also has 69km of coastline, so places to enjoy the sights and soak in the sun abound! The transparent water makes it a perfect location for snorkeling or scuba diving, as well as enjoying a flurry of other maritime sports. One experience that is a mandatory for every visitor to the island is catching the sunset at the Illetes beach, as the sun goes down over the scenic island of Ibiza on the horizon. Gastronomy is one of the island´s strong points, so one could also start by exploring the local restaurants and enjoy dishes like paella, seafood and local specialties like flaó – don´t miss it! The island is also full of wonders to explore, like several lighthouses and watchtowers perched on cliffs overlooking the azure sea. And of course, a visit to the island would not be complete without a shopping trip to the La Mola hippie market, where local artisans sell their unique products.
5) What are your plans for the near future?
In the near future, we plan to further improve and perfect the client experience in our facilities, always in line with our vision. We would like to make several self-expanding activities to be made available to our guests, like tai-chi, yoga, and personal growth retreats. We are passionate about healthy eating – so we are about to incorporate a new feature: freshly-squeezed cold-press juices for maximum health benefits and freshness. In addition to that, as always, we plan to keep up-to-date with the most recent tendencies and updating the apartments for maximum comfort, luxury and stylishness.
