Having made the wise decision to push back its Grand Opening by a week because of the unfortunate Easter weather only meant that on Sunday, April 28th, Blue Marlin Ibiza’s stylish clientele of international jetsetters arrived for the celebrations with twice the enthusiasm! Streaming in from all corners of the island to soak up the early season sunshine – which was nothing short of glorious – in the elegant setting of the Cala Jondal restaurant, feast on its renowned modern Mediterranean cuisine and listen to the finest house music, the atmosphere was electric from early on.

With Blue Marlin Ibiza’s kitchen already up and running for a few weeks, it was the perfect opportunity for returning guests and first-timers alike to savour the menu created by new Executive Chef Fernando Coradazzi, an international gourmet talent with more than twenty years experience of travelling the globe between Spain, Portugal, Italy, the UK, Luxemburg and Brazil, cooking in five-star hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants in cities like Paris, London, San Paulo and Abu Dhabi. Dining with their toes in the sand or luxuriating on the venue’s comfortable daybeds down by the sea, there were happy faces all round as foodies enjoyed the tasty culinary offering that has made the Blue Marlin Ibiza brand world-famous.

From the al fresco DJ booth, which had been decorated with floral garlands for the occasion that spread out across the venue, South African DJ and producer Culoe de Song served up a perfect dreamy daytime set filled with deep, mesmerising beats. As the sun began to make its descend and guests were getting up from their tables to dance, he added some energetic basslines that pulled diners out of any impending food coma and onto the wooden decking for a boogie. Cool as a cucumber, the cutting-edge music selector kept just the right balance in a skilful mix that was effortless, mesmerising and uplifting all at once.

By the time Grand Opening headliner and Blue Marlin Ibiza favourite Erick Morillo took to the decks, a sea of faces was already eagerly awaiting him. The iconic DJ wasted no time in taking us on a sizzling musical journey that sonically traversed the globe. Kicking off with a spicy flavour that had us dreaming of fiery fiestas in South America before playfully dropping in a vintage house sound reminiscent of the early days of the genre in Chicago and New York, Morillo suddenly transported us to exotic India with hypnotic vocals and a deep, driving beat.

All the while, the legendary DJ enjoyed the celebrations just as much as the guests, with a beaming smile spread across his face and enthusiastically dancing along to the beat. Looking around, with the gorgeous Blue Marlin Ibiza dancers appearing on the roof of the venue in flowing gowns, the fashionable and cool crowd savouring every single beat and one of the world’s biggest names in house music all soaking up the electric ambience and celebrating in unison, it was one of those pinch-me moments that only the White Isle can gift you!
