We all know Ibiza is a hedonistic haven like no other – where world-famous DJs, party animals and bohemian babes come to party until dawn.

The jetset arrive by yacht charter and choose to catch the rays from their private sundeck while everyone else looks on in envy. By night it’s a raver’s paradise, from May until October hosting a bevvy of out-of-this-world nights to attend. All this means that if you’re planning a trip to the White Isle, deciding how to spend your time can be a little intimidating, Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you – here’s how to spend a legendary week in Ibiza in summer 2019.
IDOL at EDEN
EDEN is one of Ibiza’s superclubs, credited with hosting prolific DJs like Pete Tong and Godskitchen (and with making Mondays officially cool). Two things really separate it from the rest – its notorious history as the Star Club and its thumping sound system. And this year, Monday nights from June to September are all set to deliver a smorgasbord of trippy house and techno, mind-blowing visuals and extraordinary dancers, all led by electro-visionary Timo Mass. Once you’ve entered the underground raver’s paradise that is ICON, all other club nights will have a hard time competing. Just as well we have the creme-de-la-creme lined up…

Hï Ibiza only opened its doors in 2017, but it has already become one of the most coveted party destinations, putting the clubber at the centre of everything. VIP opulence meets an incredible, feel-good atmosphere at F*** Me I’m Famous! We’ll see you on the dancefloor…

The Zoo Project at Benimussa Park
Benimussa Park does authentic alfresco clubbing like nowhere else, and the Zoo Project is its most famous event. Party under the sun in the Raving Seal Pit, cool off in the glittering pool, roller disco in the Mandala Garden or restore your chakras in the Hippy Healing Pit – with something for everyone, you can party as you please. Dress to reveal the animal inside and let your wild side come out to the sound of Behrouz, Ida Engberg and more.
This guide should help you plan the ultimate party week in Ibiza for summer 2019. However, if you still think your Ibiza holiday won’t be complete without a luxury on-the-water residence, check out the SAMURAI yacht, newly available for charter over the week of Craig David’s TS5 opening bash (8-15th July) and the perfect place for hosting on-the-water after-parties.
