Freddie Mercury & Ibiza

Four years before a Rolls Royce transported his lifeless body to the Harrow Road cementary, Freddie Mercury performed in KU discotheque one of the songs that was heard at his funeral. It was Barcelona, the song that came about as a result of the Queen singer’s obsession with the soprano Montserrat Caballé. Mercury loved opera, and he loved the voice of the diva from Barcelona the most. The song was used as the anthem of the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992 and the two singers began a brief but intense friendship.

Before dying, the leader of Queen had time to promote the single in Ibiza, the island where the man from Zanzibar, visited regularly thanks to his friendship with Tony Pikes.

Hoteles con mucho ritmo

Hotels with O.S.T

By Laura Martínez

As Bowie said: “Put on your red shoes and dance the blues.” At Concept, music is the soul of each hotel, with the sounds of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Funk, Disco, Balearic House, Swing and Cha-cha-chá providing each one
with a unique personality. Both the DJs that play in the hotels and the playlists perfectly sum up the vibe in each establishment.

Santos Ibiza

Your favourite artists of all time are elevated to the category of saints in Santos Ibiza, our celebrity temple dedicated to artists closely connected with Ibiza. This hotel’s soundtrack is full of Balearic house, disco, a little bit o’ deep and a whole
lotta downtempo. The music changes as the day progresses, starting at breakfast, which is enlivened with soul and bossa before giving way to Balearic sounds, house and funk in late morning. DJs take control of the afternoon, spinning deep house, nu-disco and funk, perfect for lying back on a sunbed while sipping a “Ain’t No Saint” cocktail.

Tropicana Ibiza

Mi-Mo aesthetics, vibrant colours and nods to “Cocktail,” (Tom Cruise’s classic 80s movie that makes you want to live in a bar forever) provide the inspiration for Tropicana, the hotel where you can sip on a cocktail while admiring the pool and the shower in the form of a Martini glass. Wrapped in a Miami Beach tropical ambience, its sound is a mix of “disco funk, tropical Jazz, 80’s vibes and bossa nova,” as defined by Simøne, the hotel’s resident DJ.

Dorado Ibiza

A love letter to the golden era of rock. This is the Dorado Ibiza’s statement of intent, backed up by the best in classic rock, folk, 70s and soul. This is a temple of Rock by the sea, where each of the hotel’s rooms is named after a song that went gold. Acclaimed artists such as Jim Morrison, Blondie and Bruce Springsteen have a room dedicated to them, and when the guest enters, the record which bears the room’s name starts to play on a turntable. The bathrooms are fitted with retro microphone heads so that guests can sing like a star while having a shower.

Music takes you to another place, and our hotels are designed to teleport you to Miami, Cuba or Nashville, without leaving Ibiza. Image and soundtrack have never been in such harmony.

Cubanito Ibiza

The flavour and character of Cuba are to be found in Cubanito hotel, with touches of Latin Jazz, Salsa, Boogaloo and Merengue. Jordi Cardona is in charge of putting rhythm to the eternal sunsets, (with a Mojito in hand) that take place on the rooftop of this little piece of Cuba in the Mediterranean. In addition, each Tuesday you can enjoy Salsero, our Salsa classes where you can give free rein to your hips. On Sundays, there are live performances from legends such as Ricardito, the “Cuban Julio Iglesias” who has sung with Celia Cruz and Juan Luis Guerra.

Romeo’s Motel & Diner

Everything that you’ve seen in the American films from the 50s, 60s and 70s is about to happen to you in Romeo’s Motel & Diner. Inspired by the ‘love motels’ on Route 66, Romeo’s is our most cinematographic hotel. It includes a specially designed room for getting up to no good doing bad things in, a 24-hour diner worthy of a Tarantino movie, and a chapel where you can get married, and divorced, on the same night – just like in Las Vegas. Folk, Americana, Classic Rock and a lot of 70s put the neon-lighted cherry on the top of your wildest adventure.

Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel

Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel is our very own pastel pink paradise, where both art and Art Deco aesthetics merge into a dreamlike space. What do these dreams sound like? Nu-Disco, Italo Disco, Balearic Beat and 80s Funk. An art gallery curated by Adda Gallery Paris, a tattoo studio, exhibitions in the lobby and a glass-walled room that isn’t for wallflowers… Ocean Drive in Miami would just love to do all this…

Siloé

Siloé

The band Siloé will broadcast live the recording of their new album Paradiso, from Suite Zero of the Paradiso Ibiza hotel.

The duo will stay for three days in the “Zero Suite”, which is a fully glazed room located in the reception area in view of the hotel’s clients.
The band will broadcast the experience through Youtube Live and IG Live in the purest “Big Brother” style, so that the public can know the whole process and get closer to their fans.

The Valladolid duo Siloé will visit the Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel, belonging to the businessman and hotelier, Diego Calvo, owner of the Ibiza Concept Hotel Group, to record their album. The album will be inspired by the hotel’s imagination: disco, house and synthwave music with the sonic essence of the band. It will also have stellar collaborations such as Bely Basarte and David Otero, among other artists, and producers such as Ale Acosta from Fuel Fandango, GARABATTO or PMP.
With the intention of also demonstrating the acoustic and electronic duality of the band, all the songs will also be released in an acoustic version and in a version remixed by a national DJ, joining all the songs at the end of their publication in a triple album: singles , acoustic versions and electronic remixes.

The group assures that it is one of the most interesting and fascinating challenges they have faced throughout their career. Staying in the “Suite Zero” (a glass-enclosed room in the hotel reception for any visitor to see) and recording your new album there, to be broadcast through a camera on YouTube Live and Instagram Live, is to recreate the experience of living a “Big Brother”, but creating a performance inside the hotel.

 

“We want to do something that goes beyond music. In the end life and the music industry is very similar to Big Brother or The Island of Temptations: either you know what your role is quickly so that people pay attention to you or you are out. “
Paradiso’s first single will be out in November and they will continue to release new ones throughout 2022 until completing the PARADISO EP album.
