Seven Pines Resort Ibiza celebrates its Grand Opening
Ibiza, 3 June 2018
With a mix of artistry, musical highlights and culinary revelations, the new 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza celebrated its Grand Opening on Saturday night, June 2nd. Kai Richter and Jörg Lindner - Managing Partners of owner company 12.18. Investment Management - welcomed around 600 invited guests, including a variety of international celebrities and VIPs. The celebration was an exciting journey through the hotspots of the spacious resort; located on the west coast of Ibiza, Seven Pines offers tailor-made luxury with its 186 Ibizan-style suites. The new five-star hotel became a member of "Leading Hotels of the World" in its pre-opening phase.
Over 90 artists and musicians performed at the event on land, water and from the air with entertainment that included 10 metre-high Dundu dolls, the Benirras Drummers and DJ Jose Padilla from the original Café del Mar musician line up. A messenger travelling through the air by rocket rucksack handed over the symbolic scissors to the owners, who officially opened the 7Pines Resort, cutting the shimmering copper band.
In the opening speech, Kai Richter, Managing Partner of Owner Company 12.18. Investment Management, expressed his enthusiasm: "We are happy and proud that our vision of the new luxury experience in Ibiza has now become reality." The General Manager of 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza, Markus Lück, thanked all employees for the exemplary commitment during the opening phase and promised, "My entire team and I will ensure you have a memorable stay."
From Brie de Meaux with black summer truffles to lobster burgers with Persian feta cheese to grilled premium fillet of beef, the team headed by chef Bijendra Yadav spoiled the guests with extraordinary culinary delights that demonstrate the unique kitchen philosophy. Those staying at – or visiting - Seven Pines can enjoy magical vistas of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and the picturesque rocky island of Es Vedrà from restaurant "The View". Additionally, the atmospheric Cone Club and four other bars - including the world's first Pershing Yacht Terrace, which was specially designed by the renowned yacht manufacturer Ferretti - offer cool refreshments and diverse delicacies.
After sunset, world star Fritz Kalkbrenner turned night into day with a breathtaking show that led guests to the dancefloor. The subsequent fireworks were the culmination of the opening ceremony.
