Caught up in a whirlwind of colourful feathers and exotic drum beats, we watched in awe as a giant inflatable parrot appeared in the bright blue sky and floated above one of the White Isle’s most famous poolsides: the glitzy O Beach Ibiza. Musicians dressed as zebras where flanking a giant mirrored lion sculpture on which an Amazonian beauty rode through the crowds while infectious house music beats where supported by a ferocious drum solo. 

O Beach Ibiza’s beautiful dancers were strutting their stuff around the open air DJ booth, clad in feathered wings not dissimilar to the iconic Victoria’s Secret Angels. It was Ibiza entertainment at its finest, and the trendy revellers were lapping up every moment. The ‘official’ annual opening ceremony of 2019 was a real showstopper, as expected, and proved to the beach club’s global following that the venue may have a new name, but the spectacular scale of production, showmanship, music and poolside shenanigans remain its signature best.

With every single one of the plush circular poolside beds taken by guests in their statement swimwear finest, sipping on champagne or expertly mixed cocktails, co-owner Tony Truman had a captivated audience for his short but euphoric thank you speech. Resident DJ and Hedkandi ambassador Loeca was in the booth, dropping one iconic house anthem after the next, while around every corner new surprises awaited to regale the enthusiastic revellers.

O Beach Ibiza’s 2019 opening was a right royal extravaganza and even the Queen made an appearance – albeit in the shape of island royalty Ruby Murry, drag queen operatic singer extraordinaire, who performed dressed as Queen Elizabeth and descended from the heavens on the top of a black cab. With an life size red double-decker bus circulating above our heads and a Freddie Mercury impersonator belting out We Will Rock You, the British theme continued as O Beach Ibiza’s very own – and very sexy – Royal Guards surrounded the decks where residents and Ibiza favourites Tom Crane and Grant Collins were holding court. What looked like something out of a fairytale was, in fact, White Isle reality, so make all your wildest fantasies come true with a visit to O Beach Ibiza this summer!
