A sublime notion - SubliMotion

OS Private Travel know that holidays are not just about sun, sea and sand, but also the local culinary offerings and unique flavours and identity of your chosen destination. So when we heard about the new SubliMotion at the Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza it certainly whet our appetite.

Debuting this June at the Hard Rock Hotel in Playa d’en Bossa, SubliMotion is set to be the most expensive restaurant in the planet and will seat 12 guests at a time for a 20-course gastro-sensory meal that will cost €1,500 per person, or more than $2,000 a head, according to the restaurant's spokesperson.

“What is SubliMotion? It’s hard to explain,” chef Paco Roncero explains in the restaurant’s promotional video. “[It’s] Ibiza, passion, gastronomy. A radically different show you can only experience for yourself.

Headed up by Roncero – one of Spain’s most famous chefs – this futuristic restaurant has walls which are a virtual light show, moving pictures projected on the table tops, and lighting or scenes changed to coordinate with the diners first bite or taste sensation.

“The micro environments depend on the cook, who is the ‘emitter,’” explains one of Roncero’s sous chefs in the video. “The ‘receiver’ is the diner, the dish is the ‘message,’ and the setting is the ‘channel.’ All of this is inside the ‘micro environment,’ which is the place where you eat. For example, eating on the beach is not the same as eating in a field.”

Speaking of micro environments, why not book your very own island less than a kilometre from the coast of the mainland of Ibiza? Tagomago island is also available for short breaks and events – contact us on +44 1993 899 430 for more details.
