ATZARÓ GROUP beach club and restaurant in Ibiza via 360 MAGAZINE

Atzaró Group Beach Club

The sensational Atzaró Group beach club and restaurant Atzaró Beach, situated on the sparkling beach of Cala Nova in Ibiza’s North-East, is now open for Summer 2022. Listed by Conde Nast Traveller as one of “the best beach clubs in the world for summer 2022,” Atzaró Beach has become a firm-favourite of the discerning traveller, as well as an A-list hotspot. It’s the perfect place for an upscale beach lunch or dinner hideaway with unparalleled aquamarine sea views.

The food concept at Atzaró Beach is new this year. Top London chef James Adams has created a mouthwatering menu with the emphasis on sharing plates, and grilled choices, using produce grown on the Atzaró estate. James Adams has been a chef and food consultant for over 16 years in some of London’s top restaurant kitchens and is famous for his work with Skye Gyngell at Spring within Somerset House, at celebrated country hotel Heckfield Place, chef at River Cafe, menu and planting direction at Petersham Nurseries.

The new menu this year is full of wholesome, light and delicious dishes, with plenty of seafood and vegetarian choices, created with organic fruit and vegetable ingredients harvested from the Atzaró Vegetable Garden. Sharing plates can be enjoyed on the comfortable daybeds or sofas beachside.

Watch the morning sun rise over the sea and enjoy a healthy breakfast of either chia pudding with coconut and raspberries or perhaps an acai bowl with banana and pineapple. For something a bit more substantial try the grilled chorizo with fried eggs, roasted pepper and rocket salad on toast or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.

For a sharing plate lunch with friends, choose from a delicious selection including tuna ceviche with mango, cucumber and lime, burrata with sourdough and pesto, baby squid with lime allioli, padron peppers, grilled asparagus with romesco sauce and chopped almonds or beef carpaccio with parmesan and rocket. Salad options include watermelon salad with feta and mint or a tasty beetroot and goat’s cheese salad with pumpkin seeds. There are a range of pasta dishes and from the grill you can order lobster with garlic butter, sea bass, and T-bone or Entrecôte steaks. For the more traditional there are a choice of four paellas to share.

Sweet treats include San Sebastian cheesecake with a raspberry compote, grilled pineapple with coconut ice cream and chilli or orujo panacotta with strawberries as well as homemade ice creams and sorbets.

In 2019 the interiors and exteriors of Atzaró Beach were refurbished by Atzaró Design, the group’s talented in-house interiors team. The concept is paired back boho style, with a super- relaxed authentic mood, reminiscent of 70’s Ibiza. The look is designed to work with the environment and combines natural woods, terracotta pots, an abundance of local plants, cacti and palms. The colour palette of soft neutral sand tones with pops of vibrant compliments the pristine beach and crystal-clear waters of the sea beyond.

Straw cacti and potted plants frame the tables, the rustic wood pergola provides dappled shade and the thirty double daybeds are perfect for those long hot summer days. Hanging rattan lampshades add some low-key atmosphere to balmy nights. Relax on a comfortable mix of sofas, stools, tables and chairs with hanging bamboo swing seats as well as iconic rattan peacock armchairs. An Ibizan wooden fishing boat provides an extra seating area with cushions to create a casual and relaxed feeling.

Natura Ora

In celebration of Earth Day this month, The St. Regis Bora Bora is delighted to officially launch Natura Ora. Tahitian for “Living Nature,” Natura Ora is the resort’s sustainability initiative dedicated to protecting the environment, supporting local people and communities, preserving French Polynesian culture, and practicing more responsible consumption.

“For several months, our teams have worked closely with our new Sustainability Development Officer, Lucie-Léa Viot, to develop the Natura Ora concept and we are excited to officially debut this important sustainability initiative in celebration of Earth Day,” states General Manager Emmanuel Richardet. “Our goal is to create lasting, pro-active programs under the Natura Ora umbrella that inspire colleagues and the local community to work together to protect our fenua (Tahitian for land), support the people and preserve the culture of French Polynesia.”

With an emphasis on collaboration and co-creation, the resort is working with various organizations to achieve Natura Ora’s goals including the local environmental protection organization, Ia Vai Ma Noa; Amazones Pacific, a non-profit organization supporting women whose lives have been compromised by cancer; Pae Tai Pae Uta, a waste management consultancy firm; and the Agency for Environment & Energy Management (ADEME).

“This is such an incredible destination that is rich with cultural and environmental treasures,” states Lucie-Léa Viot, the resort’s Sustainability Development Officer. “I’m proud to be given this opportunity to bring our vision for Natura Ora to life to ensure that French Polynesia’s fenua, its people, and its culture thrive for many years to come.”

Projects launched as part of the Natura Ora initiative include:

Waste Management – Repurposing of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)

The resort has partnered with the local charity, Ia Via Ma Noa, to collect and repurpose electronic and electrical equipment for donation to local families and businesses in need.

Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Market

As part of Natura Ora’s mission to support good health practices, an on-property weekly market was established to sell fresh, locally-sourced produce at below market prices to help make healthy eating more accessible and affordable for colleagues and the local community.

Coral Planting

“In French Polynesia, the protection of marine life, particularly the preservation of corals, is

essential for biodiversity,” states Sustainability Development Officer, Lucie-Léa Viot. To that end, the resort will launch a coral reforestation program that invites guests to actively participate in the planting of coral with the resort’s marine specialist. Guests will receive a diploma for their work and can follow the evolution of the coral they planted year after year.

The Green Council

This 10-person team was curated from different resort departments for the purpose of brainstorming and implementing new concepts and programs in accordance with Natura Ora’s goals and areas of focus.

Annual Earth Hour Event

On March 26 this year, the resort held its first annual commemoration of Earth Hour to increase awareness about the need to reduce energy consumption to help save the planet. Between 8:30 PM – 9:30 PM, electric lights were extinguished on the resort’s Main Beach—380 candles and two fire pits were lit to illuminate the area. The event included live music and a presentation about the origins and purpose of Earth Hour.

Additional Natura Ora projects in the pipeline include taking waste management practices to the next level by increasing recycling rates and improving sorting, further development of the coral reforestation program, installment of water fountains to eliminate the use of plastic water bottles, and increasing the consumption of local products to decrease the resort’s carbon footprint. For resort colleagues, more wellness offerings and volunteer opportunities are also in development.

About The St. Regis Bora BoraThis expansive 44-acre tropical paradise combines French Polynesian hospitality with St. Regis’ renowned service. The resort’s 90-rooms are comprised of charming garden view villas, beachside villas, two-bedroom reef side villas perfect for families, and the largest overwater villas in the South Pacific. Accommodations throughout the resort are idyllically situated to optimize views of majestic Mount Otemanu and access Bora Bora’s brilliant turquoise waters and pristine beaches. Lagoon by Jean Georges Restaurant, the Iridium Spa nestled on its own private island, St. Regis’ signature butler service, a fun-filled Kids Club and the property’s stunning Lagoonarium flush with marine life are just some of the things that make this award-winning hideaway one of the world’s leading luxury resorts.

Radisson Gran Via Bilbao

Following the opening of Radisson Collection Hotel, Magdalena Plaza Sevilla last year, Radisson Hotel Group is now introducing its luxury lifestyle brand to Bilbao and bringing its exceptional service and guest experience to the city as part of its ambitious growth plan in Spain.

Radisson Collection Hotel, Gran Vía Bilbao is located in the former headquarters of Banco Hispano Americano, built in 1945. The hotel has 137 rooms over six floors, including two impressive rooftop suites with private terraces featuring a jacuzzi and stunning views of the city. The elegant interior design features marble, natural stone and wood, together with a color range in elegant earth tones complemented with gold and blue hues, reflecting the glow of the city’s architecture and its estuary. The hotel’s fitness and spa area, complete with an indoor pool and yoga studio, is expected to open in the coming months.

The property’s rooftop is home to NKO, the first restaurant of its kind from renowned chef Eneko Atxa, who has been awarded five Michelin stars across his restaurant portfolio. NKO brings together Basque and Japanese cuisine, as a nod to both the chef’s Basque heritage and his admiration for Japanese gastronomy. The restaurant has a spectacular terrace with vertical gardens, colorful umbrellas and a striking geometric black and white marble floor. Cocktails are served with breathtaking views, creating the perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing or business meetings in the vibrant Basque capital. This is the third collaboration between the chef and Radisson Hotel Group, following the opening of his Eneko Basque concept in Seville and Brussels. Another partnership will soon follow in Madrid.

“It’s a great pleasure to open the second Radisson Collection hotel in Spain and bring the brand to Bilbao. One of the most outstanding elements of this new hotel is its location in the heart of the city on one of the most prominent avenues, Gran Vía. The hotel features stylish and attention-to-detail design, with an exceptional rooftop terrace, that is one of the best in Bilbao. We are honored to partner with local five-time Michelin star chef Eneko Atxa to offer top-class gastronomy at our NKO restaurant”, says Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President Northern & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group.

The hotel’s Art Deco-inspired design was brought to life by dAAr Arquitectura, and each space is characterized by a different design. With curved lines, soft seating and the use of many different fabrics and textures, the interiors give each space glamor, elegance and sophistication.

The hotel is proud to have received a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum green building certification, consuming 47% less energy and 40% less water than comparable buildings. It has also achieved the LEED Innovation credit for creating a ‘Walkable Project site’, which consists of incorporating design elements that promote walking, cycling, and other non-motorized transportation in the hotel’s location and its surrounding community.

Radisson Collection Hotel, Gran Via Bilbao’s impressive location surrounded by pedestrianized streets makes it the perfect base for visitors to discover all the city has to offer. Guests can stroll along the banks of the Bilbao Estuary and traverse the halls of the iconic Guggenheim Museum—Bilbao’s most famous attraction—which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Other nearby cultural attractions include the Museum of Fine Arts, the Azkuna Zentroa cultural entertainment space and the city’s old town, marked by narrow cobbled streets and charming squares full of cafes and pintxo bars such as the nearby Plaza Nueva.

In 2018, Radisson Hotel Group started an ambitious plan to transform the business. For the Spanish market, the ambition is to open more than 20 hotels in the next five years. In recent months, Radisson Collection Hotel, Magdalena Plaza Sevilla opened in Seville, and later this year Spain’s first Radisson RED lifestyle property will open its doors in the center of Madrid. Meanwhile, guests can already enjoy the recently renovated Radisson Blu Hotel, Madrid Prado as well as Radisson Blu Resort, Gran Canaria and Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Gran Canaria Mogan.

With the health and safety of guests and team members as its top priority, Radisson Collection Hotel, Gran Vía Bilbao is implementing the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol program. The in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocols were developed in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, and are designed to ensure guest safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out.
