On Ibiza’s south side is Es Vive, a whitewashed Art Deco inspired 50-bedroom hotel. Es Vive is a true landmark of the white isle. It is legendary for its style, level of service and fabulous pool parties. Originally built as a house in the 1940s it is now one of the very few listed buildings on the Island. Es Vive’s clients are mainly a mix of fashion folk, designers and club lands high fliers. The owners were keen to offer their guests an experience that was more befitting the hotels Art Deco roots and so commissioned Cochrane Design to redesign the restaurant & bar. Very little of the previous interior remained, so it was very much in need of a complete overhaul.

Sean Cochrane creative director at Cochrane Design has a reputation for balancing contemporary details with classic style and luxury. On first entering the restaurant a striking symmetry draws you toward the monolithic pearlised bar with the bespoke floor acting as a cat walk through the centre of the room. This stunning floor was created using Ibiza Bianca marble inlaid with veined black marble in an art deco inspired pattern. Silver leaf and antiqued mirror add provenance to the interior. The chandeliers, hanging lights, mirrors and bar were all designed by Cochrane Design and were imported from Italy and London.

Every element down to the studded leather chairs, polished chrome feet, back plates and marble table tops as well as the coved ceiling with the stepped detail cornice has been carefully considered to inspire the feeling of 1930’s elegance with an Ibizan twist. Every room has been so carefully considered that every room feels like home from the moment you enter. Hotel Es Vive presents contemporary art deco which seamlessly reflects the Ibizan style. It is the epitome of timeless style, sophistication and luxury.
