The surprise of a lifetime

July 26, 2016


Back in February a contact of mine asked me to come and meet him at his office in London to discuss his wife’s surprise 50th.

We plotted over the next 5 months arranging for the 30 best friends of the couple to fly to Ibiza where we took over the gorgeous boutique agrotourismo Atzaro for 5 days.

Here’s what we did:


Guests arrive at Atzaro throughout the day from around the world (huge baggage problems in Ibiza airport so half of them arrive with no bags!)

Poolside hanging and spa treatments.

Cocktails by the pool for the birthday girl’s surprise arrival – (her words on seeing everyone where “what?” “why?” and then “did you know?” (to her husband.) Hilarious.

Dinner & Dancing at Lio.


Morning yoga with the gorgeous Suzanne (one person showed up!)

Boat trip to Formentera on the Princesa De Mar with a hamper prepared by Ibiza Delivers with fruit, platters, chests, truffle honey and Made in Provence Rose.

Lunch at Juan Y Andrea.

Cocktails poolside at Atzaro (bar-tender David makes the most insane strawberry gin & tonics.)

Dinner under the beautiful pagoda covered in fairy lights with flowers by Mireya Estevez.

“F**k me I’m famous” at Pacha.


No one came to yoga (but they went to bed at 5:30am!

Sore heads for the Santa Agnes Heaven’s Gate walk with the lovely Toby from Walking Ibiza.

Cliff-top lunch at Puertas De Cielo.

Spa treatments at the Atzaro Spa.

Sunset Kayak from Benirras to San Miguel with Toby from Walking Ibiza.

Dinner & Party on secret beach with music by the coolest flamenco dudes Gino & Jiri, décor by Velvet Circus. We created a changing area with white gauzy curtains hidden in the forest and there was a fancy dress box.

The client said “It was truly the most enchanting scene I have ever experienced”.

After-hours drinks in The Chill at Atzaro.


Hike from Sa Caleta to Cala Jondal with Toby.

Lunch & beach-party at Blue Marlin.

Dinner at Macao in Santa Gertrudis.


We say goodbye to our lovely guests.

What a special week looking after the most thoroughly lovely people.
