Simply put, Cala Saladeta is amazing. Go a little off the beaten track and you will discover this locals paradise, with picture perfect turquoise water & a burnt rugged cliff face. Spend your day swimming in the salt water & refreshing in the clean brisk air, while you sip away on a fresh coconut cut open by one of the local beach market sellers. During peak season, no cars are allowed in or out, so prepare for a breezy 15 minute walk to reach this beautiful cove.
We were lucky enough to spend our time in Ibiza at the beautiful farmhouse turned boutique hotel, La Granja. Founded on sustainable principles, with a farm-to-plate approach - old terraces have been converted to now home over 30 vegetable & fruit varieties, as well as our favorite olive trees spread out throughout the grounds, along with delicious nuts and citrus trees. Andy, head farmer at La Granja, was kind enough to take FAITHFULL on a tour of the property where we were introduced to strawberry farming, flower foraging and mingling with the farm security, Coco Chanel and Luna, resident pig & pony duo.
Located in the middle of island, La Granja sets a cosy & moody tone, with interiors filled with wood, stone & slate, mixing earthy tones & grey hues throughout the 5 bedrooms and shared spaces available to relax and unwind. Every detail has been thoroughly thought out and placed, which makes La Granja just that little bit more special. We highly recommend to plan your stay so you are visiting on a Friday Evening, as La Granja holds a special invite only event each week boasting a beautiful sunset surrounding, exquisite drinks and interesting people from all walks of life, locations and age. Each Friday evening is strictly VIP Invite only with people queuing outside the premise gates, but if you are a guest at La Granja, you get to indulge in a night of mystique and excellence with your only worry being the choice between red, white or cocktails.
The people who run La Granja hold a special place in our hearts, as no task was too much during our stay. There is something really quite unique that we haven’t experienced before, where you spend your breakfast, lunch and dinner (if you choose) getting to know a little behind the people who are helping you experience your holiday. We can’t say enough good things about our hosts, Andrea, Pepe, Jose, Marco & the rest of the team at La Granja.
We are extremely excited to go back to our La Granja family in the near future and continue to share our new found love of Ibiza with many.
The tones, textures, details & hues of La Granja is like nothing we had ever experienced. Every nook & cranny was picture perfect, making our stay even the more grand. During our stay we occupied the Guest House, suitable for a family as well as an array of suites and terraces. If you want that extra bit of luxury, opt for the Suite with a bath inside. Nothing screams relaxation more than sipping on a glass of red, in a hot bathtub after ending a perfect night by the fireplace.

During our time in Ibiza, our Faithfull Muses were spoilt by our generous partners in all things health, beauty & jewelry. On a holiday, there’s nothing more relaxing than finally taking the time to look after your skin and inner body & we now swear by these products. We put together a list of favorite items from the trip for your next getaway:
- Perfect for that post flight puffy eye, La Biosthetique has generated the perfect Patch Gel Liftlant
Needing to revive your jet-lagged skin? Lanolips
has created a beautiful leave on Recovery Mask
that is a must keep for your travel pack. Formulated to work magic in-flight, you are also able to get ahead of the game and apply mid air. Highly recommended.
If you’re skin is feeling a little off, as well as feeling you need a little boost from the inside you can’t go past The Beauty Chef’s
Cleanse Inner Beauty Powder
. We used this product daily to help fight the jet lag and inner toxins, and have never felt better. We chose to mix the dosage within filtered water each morning before breakfast and found that was the easiest and simplest way for us to stay on top of our inner beauty regime. The Beauty Chef has so many products that you can cater to exactly how you are feeling/needing to boost - so we recommend if in doubt, reach out to their wonderful team for a point in the right direction.
We were absolutely spoiled and received gifts from The Ayu
featuring their must have perfume oils. We’re all about smelling your best on your vacation, and you can’t go wrong with The Ayu
. We highly recommend Ayu Souq
- a luminous floral perfume, mixing sacred oils to a form a heady and intoxicating scent.
Flying can be an absolute pain when it comes to the obvious, but more importantly for your skin. There’s more times than we can count that we have arrived after a long-haul only to look in the mirror and see new unwanted pimples, dry skin and cracks. We can’t speak highly enough of Salt by Hendrix Mermaid Facial Oil
as it truly set the game apart and became a crucial part of our beauty regime in Ibiza. From $19, The Mermaid Facial Oil
is beyond value for money and we will never travel without this gem in future trips.
Our Faithfull Muses were gifted elevated and premium jewelry pieces from the beautiful teams at Missoma, Anni Lu & Reliqua. There's something so unique about styling yourself on holiday and these brands latest collections make vacation staples that much more exciting. Pops of color, pearls & dainty bracelets were a key staple for all muses this trip & the European summer moving forward.
After a day by the sea, we wanted to discover another side of Ibiza. We ventured into the Old Town, coveted with cute little cafes with locals sipping on Rosé, long white washed stone alleyways, and pops of bougainvillea. In a sense, Old Town reminded us of a Spanish “Ostuni” where we could spend hours getting lost in the many charming paths. Make your way to the top peak and secure a perfect sunset spot at one of the many Spanish Tapas bars to sit down, relax and unwind as the day turns into a starry night.
We set sail on our final day to the charming island of Formentera. If you are considering splurging during your trip, this is a must do for anyone who loves being on the water and being in charge of your own day trip. We docked at Beso Beach, where we ate delicious food, sipped on cocktails and rose (as usual) and dipped in the fresh ocean, soaking up the official start of summer.
Over the course of our event, we were absolutely spoiled for choice in unique and exquisite Spanish tapas & more. A few stand outs were La Paloma , Beso Beach Bar & of coarse La Granja.
