With helicopters and heritage, this Ibizan island is your private paradise
Tagomago boasts a wilderness as exotic as its name, and a startling luxury villa at the centre of it all
Ibiza is exclusive at the best of times. One of the hottest yachting destinations of the summer, and setting of many of the region’s best restaurants, it’s an annual fixture on our must-visit list. And now, another high-end hideaway has given us a reason to head to the Med.
Off the island’s north coast, the private island of Tagomago is one of the most exclusive and intimate hideaways in the Mediterranean. Accessible only by private speedboat or helicopter, it is the only private island available to rent in Ibiza. And it is home to a uniquely private and sensational five-bedroom villa.
And it’s not short of heritage, either. A historic lighthouse dates back to 1909, and the island was originally owned by the German royal family. Today, however, it is one of the Mediterranean’s most idyllic and in demand locations; an area of outstanding beauty overlooking the sea.
Once docked on this private paradise, guests have use of a private boat with a captain for the duration of their stay, making it easy to explore the stunning coastline. And the villa itself, located in the centre of the island, is fully staffed with a private chef, butler and housekeeping staff.
Designed to the highest standards, it’s a villa that enjoys panoramic views of Ibiza and the Mediterranean and is ideal for groups of friends or families. It boasts five en-suite double bedrooms, a spectacular saltwater pool flanked by Balinese day beds, and a customised professional kitchen.
In addition to this, any party you throw will be supported by the latest technology, including SONOS sound system, Wi-Fi and LED light system. Or, if you want to keep things old school, head out to the huge rooftop terrace for a relaxing night on the island.
But, as with all luxury, the true worth comes from the service. Tagomago’s excellent staff ensure that guests get the most out of their time on the island, and offer a tailormade schedule of activities including a full range of water sports, diving, fishing, hiking, yoga, massage treatments and Tai Chi — and that’s before we even get to the specialist chefs and local mixologists. Truly a slice of paradise…
