Originally, in 2008 Ushuaia was a beach restaurant, started by Yann Pissenem, right on Playa d’en Bossa beach and just a few minutes away from the current location. It was the venue which today is called “Sands”. People used to spend their afternoons there, hanging around, sipping drinks and listening to some good music.
Only one year later and after moving some metres down the beach, Ushuaia got quite famous with some afterparties of some of the island’s hottest party labels. Actually the whole story with beach parties at Ushuaia began with Leonardo Cannistra, hosting Sundays and after bringing Tania Vulcano and totally smashing the place, the new star was born.
As a result, Ushuaia became incredibly popular as a (semi-legal) party location and “the” place for locals and season workers. Sundays became so big and the venue so busy that Luciano invaded Ushuaia with his Vagabundos, and took over the Sundays. The Ushuaia closing party at the end of the season 2010 – which happened right on the beach and attracted around 3.000 people – was the stuff legends are made from.
Then, some smart heads had a vision, a concept and enough cash for something much bigger. And BANG – in 2011, the Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel was born! Again at a new location, moving again up the beach a little bit. It wasn’t a totally new built hotel, just the Fiesta hotel right across Space in Playa d’en Bossa that got a complete facelift during winter 2010/11 and a new name. Everything got refurbished, from the rooms to the restaurants, the bars and most importantly, the patio what is now Ibiza’s latest attraction.
The original “old” location on the beach still exists today and is known as „La Plage“, but that’s another story…
