    Safety Measures at Ibiza Resort and Spa

    Ibiza Spa & Resort in Kolkata is following all the safety protocols. This ensures that you will not only have a pleasant stay but also a safe stay.

    As soon as you get down from the car your luggage will be sanitized and the check-in is a Zero-touch check-in. You will be asked to sanitize your hand and wearing a mask is mandatory.

    Once you reach the reception, you need to sign your documents but the best part they are using disposable pens, so you need not worry about using a pen which has been used earlier.

    Once you check in to your room, you will get Whatsapp messages which will not only have the key information but also all the Menu Cards from In-Room breakfast, lunch, or dining. This is the best part and ensures Zero Touch.

    My suggestion is don't go for Buffet Lunch though it will be cheaper, however, you should order lunch in the room. When I went for buffet lunch I found few guests not following the norms even after repeated requests by the Authorities.

    Lastly, you needn't worry about Safety while staying as the property is huge and you can maintain social distancing easily and also find few empty spaces where you can breathe fresh air.

    Rooms at Ibiza The Fern Resort & Spa in Kolkata

    While traveling to a weekend destination from Kolkata, the first thing in my mind is the quality of the room. Any holiday can be ruined or made depending on the quality of the room. At the end of the day you would like to jump into bed for a good night's sleep to rejuvenate for the next day and this makes the room so important.

    During our weekend gateway at Ibiza, we stayed at the Fern Club Room. The rooms are approx. 430-450 sq feet. As soon as you enter the room you are greeted by a wooden floor that not only gives a rustic feel but exudes opulence and warmth. The rooms have a king-size bed and are extremely spacious. The bathroom is nicely done with a bathtub and separate shower section. Ibiza provides high-end toiletries.

Your mornings become extremely special when you hear the birds chirping and especially the sweet sound of Koel. Sit with a morning cup of coffee while you enjoy nature in all its beauty.

    The balcony was our favorite place and in fact, my 1.5 years daughter enjoyed it the most.

    Weekend destinations from Kolkata have to come with good food. A happy tummy leads to a happy and peaceful sleep. The dining room at the Ibiza resort and Spa is called the Dolce Vita.

    Once you get in the restaurant you will know why it’s called Dolce Vita. Well, Dolce Vita means – The sweet Life or The Good Life. As soon as you enter you will feel you have entered a palace. The dining area is huge and extremely beautifully decorated.

    You can order Ala Carte or go for Buffet. The Buffet spread is really nice. On the day we reached we had Buffet and for Dinner we ordered Ala Carte. You can order food from the restaurant for an in-room dining experience. Just an advice order well in advance if you want to have an in-room dining experience as they take time to bring the order.

    The food is extremely tasty and all preparations are freshly made. Don’t expect an exotic menu however the food on offer will not disappoint you at all.




    For example, if you are working late from the resort or partying or chatting in your room late in the night and if you feel hungry then you can order food well past midnight. Though the options will be limited to Sandwiches but at least it’s better to have something than to sit hungry.

    Breakfast in Kolkata

    You can either choose to have your breakfast at the restaurant which will be a buffet or order the breakfast in your room. We ordered breakfast in our room and enjoyed it while listening to the sounds of birds and enjoying nature.

    It will take you approx 1.5 hours to reach Ibiza and if you get stuck in the traffic at Behala or Diamond Harbour road then it might take approx 2 or more hours. While returning I got stuck near Joka and it took me approx 2.5 hours o reach home.

    The road conditions are extremely good and if you are planning to drive on your own it shouldn't be a problem at all.
