Beso Beach Goes Global

Posted on March 8, 2018

Words: Iain Thomson

Formentera’s Beso Beach needs very little introduction; widely regarded as one of the world’s finest beach concepts, it offers an authentic, bohemian experience in stunning seafront surroundings. A Mediterranean/ Basque fusion that results in one of the most delicious destinations on any island is what awaits amongst the Ses Salinas nature park, where you will find white sand, crystal clear waters and authentic pirates! Tuesday April 17 is the date of the opening for 2018 but, for fans of the concept, the good news is that it has recently added two exciting new destinations to its global portfolio, Beso Tulum and Beso Sitges, so, depending where you are in the world, you don’t have to wait for your Beso fix.

December 2017 saw Grupo Beso take its world famous beach concept to the striking coast of Tulum where a gastronomic adventure, with its foundations in Mediterranean/ Basque cuisine and a nod to local gastronomy, awaits. Having set the bar pretty high in Beso Beach Formentera, Beso Beach Tulum, or Kiss Tulum as it is known, has a lot to live up to, but it has wasted no time in endearing itself to locals and tourists alike. The laid back, friendly but professional attitude of the staff makes everyone feel instantly at home the minute they enter the venue and, aside from the magnificent menu, a vibrant entertainment schedule and refreshing cocktails have made Beso Tulum a great place to hang out for friends and family. The deep rooted philosophy of Formentera, which has seen Beso Beach elevated to upper echelons of the global beach club scene are evident in both of the new ventures. The strong sense of style, the warmth of family and the dedication to quality, whether that is the ingredients that make up the menu or the artists that offer entertainment throughout the week, has ensured a strong start for Beso Tulum. The spectacular setting in one of the most idyllic parts of the Caribbean hasn’t don’t it any harm either!

A little closer to home, Sitges is where you will find the most recent addition by the Grupo Beso, a collaboration with ME Sitges Terramar, a luxurious beach hotel concept on the Catalan coast. Opened January 27, the innovative venture has already grabbed more than its fair share of headlines. The group will look after all food and beverage offerings for the stylish new hotel, from the Terramar restaurant overlooking the beach to the Radio ME Sitges rooftop bar, room service, minibar management and breakfast, the most important meal of the day, bringing Beso Beach’s extensive experience in exceeding the expectations of its demanding clientele. The Beso Sitges restaurant offers a relaxed, fun atmosphere in which to enjoy some spectacular paellas, while Beso Beach club embodies all of the positives of its Formentera cousin, offering a world-class experience on the sand.

The laid back vibe that has been the beach concept signature is evident, as its ability to make you forget everything that is happening on the outside world and help you lose yourself in a relaxing, rejuvenating experience you will never forget. For those with an educated palate, checkout the Oyster bar in the hotel lobby where you can also enjoy other sea bites, premium cheeses and delicatessen as well as a fully stocked wine and champagne list. The final space, the Beso Sitges pool, offers an intimate space open to the sea where you can chill and enjoy a range of healthy juices, fruit smoothies and super foods to help you bounce back after the exploits of the previous evening. Alternatively, let the sea breeze wash over you as you unwind and enjoy the sun. Rafael Viar of Grupo B explains: “It is a year of strong expansion for our group, after inaugurating in the month of December Beso Tulum, we are very pleased to start 2018 with the inauguration of this great project in Sitges.”
