The name ‘Ibizazen’ comes from ‘Ibiza’ on the one hand and ‘Zazen’ on the other hand. The aim of the ‘Zazen’ state of mind is ‘just sitting’. Letting words, ideas, images and thoughts pass by without actually getting involved in them.
Originally Ibizazen was a small farmhouse owned by the Bufi family, built on a spacious terraced garden of 8000m2 in the middle of its orange and lemon trees.
Before its drastic transformation it already had a rich hospitality history on the island. In the 70’s, the first tourist accomodations on the island were called 'Hostal'. Back then the old farmhouse grew out into one of the very first gay hostals on the island called 'Hostal Can Bufi' (the house of 'Bufi').
For the past 40 years 'Hostal Can Bufi' has been welcoming all kinds of guests from far away as well as from the island itself. Today, it is a family-owned 'Bohemian Boutique Hostal' named Ibizazen and built with lots of love and passion.
The concept of Ibizazen is based on the idea of creating a place in which our guests feel at home, relax, laugh or… just ‘be’ in an environment that is cosy enough to feel at home without losing its exclusive level of service and luxury, as well as material wise as in personal attention.
By combining natural materials, recycled items, Hindu, African and Buddhist statues with modern art and luxury Ibizazen reflects modern atmosphere where new and old elements meet and form a complete outbalanced total.
