Hacienda Na Xamena Wedding Venue Ibiza

Located up a steep road that winds up to the top of the mountains from the little village of San Miguel, Hacienda Na Xamena is renowned worldwide as the best wedding venue in Ibiza.

The 5-star luxury hotel is built into the cliff tops and it has one of the most romantic and dramatic views of the Ibiza sunset on the island.

For weddings at Hacienda Na Xamena, the ceremony takes place in the outside amphitheatre which has mesmerising views of the cliffs and the sea.

This is the most enchanting wedding ceremony location in Ibiza and possibly one of the top 10 wedding ceremony locations in the world.

The head chef at Hacienda Na Xamena has two Michelin stars and the food served at weddings and in their restaurant is out of this world.

Hacienda Na Xamena has one of the best spas in the world and although it is not available for weddings, you should definitely set a pre-wedding date to enjoy the Cascadas Suspendidas.

This is an original outdoor treatment set in the cliffs with a series of 8 whirlpools along a spa river with waterfalls and showers – incredible!

Hacienda Na Xamena has a license for music and the evening party can keep going until 3am.

The minimum spend for weddings is based on 50 guests, but you are welcome to have a smaller and more intimate wedding – you will just have to spend the equivalent of 50 guests to secure the venue.

The maximum capacity of the outside amphitheatre is 120 guests.

Weddings at Hacienda Na Xamena Hotel in Ibiza

Hacienda Na Xamena is a 5-star hotel and wedding venue in Ibiza and when you hire the venue for your wedding you get exclusive use of the outside amphitheatre and the function suite.

The rest of the hotel, spa and restaurant will continue to operate as normal.

Hacienda Na Xamena is a really welcoming hotel, but it is super exclusive. During the wedding your guests will only have access to the outside amphitheatre and the function suite and they will not have access to any of the other areas of the hotel unless they are also staying as a guest.

This is to protect the exclusivity of the guests staying at the hotel.

If you and your guests plan to stay at Hacienda Na Xamena then it is possible to negotiate a discount on rooms if 6-8 rooms or more are booked (depending on season).

The primary goal of the team at Hacienda Na Xamena is to provide you with the best wedding possible and they pay attention to every detail including some of the following:

+ water provided at back of amphitheatre during ceremony
+ sound system available for microphone and background music
+ you can provide a mood board with your styling ideas and the hotel will put together the decorations for your rooms and for your tables based on your ideas.
+ the hotel will provide the tables, chairs and furniture for the rooms and you can let them know what you would prefer – chill out sofas, benches, bean bags, etc. (Note: if anything is too specific and has to be ordered in from mainland Spain then you will have to pay extra for this or organise it yourself)
+ you can send the hotel a copy of your wedding invites and they will copy the styling for these and use it to create your table plan and name cards which they will print for you
+ the hotel will bake your cake and you can send across your ideas and design inspirations

The two wedding planners at Hacienda Na Xamena are Paula and Irina and they will work with their team to make your wedding incredible.

There is no reason to hire in another wedding planner.

For weddings at Hacienda you have two options for the flow of the day.

You can choose option 1 which is a cocktail party. This includes the ceremony and a 2.5 hour reception after the ceremony.

Option 2 is the most popular and is the full wedding experience. This includes the ceremony, a drinks reception, a meal and then a party until 3am at the very latest.

Wedding Ceremony at Hacenda Na Xamena

The meeting point for wedding guests is the main reception of the hotel and they will be invited to arrive 30mins before the wedding ceremony.

When everybody has arrived, all of the guests will be escorted through the hotel and down to the outside amphitheatre.

A staff member will lead the group through the hotel and there will be a staff member at every door and junction en route to make sure that everybody stays together.

The journey through the hotel adds a layer of excitement to the occasion as guests make their way down from the 5th floor (entrance) to the 1st floor.

Disabled access is possible using a different route and this will need to be arranged in advance so that the hotel can make sure that the route is open and that the guest(s) are looked after really well.

In the hot heat of the summer months (July and August) it is recommended to delay wedding ceremonies until 6 or 7pm.

For weddings in all other months, a ceremony time of 4 or 5pm works really well.

Depending on who you book to take your ceremony (you will have to book this person separately), your wedding ceremony will last between 30minutes to 1 hour.

Ibiza wedding ceremony at Hacienda Na Xamena hotel wedding venue

Wedding ceremonies take place in the outside amphitheatre and the guests all have cushioned seating.

The view for couples and guests is incredible and literally mind blowing.

Water is available at the back of the amphitheatre during the ceremony.

There is also power available at the back of the amphitheatre and live music can be so magical for ceremonies at Hacienda Na Xamena.

If you would like live piano music then you can hire Ibiza wedding pianist and wedding DJ James to play for your wedding ceremony on his white baby grand piano.

After the wedding ceremony, the amphitheatre works really well as a place for group photos. You and your guests can stand at the bottom near the cliff edge and your wedding photographer can stand at the top and take the photo.

You can also arrange to release balloons or confetti from the amphitheatre which can be a really magical moment.

After the ceremony and photographs have finished, your guests will be escorted upstairs to the function suite and you will stay with your photographer to have some more romantic wedding photos taken.

Wedding Reception Option 1 – Cocktail Party at Hacienda Na Xamena

The first option for weddings at Hacienda Na Xamena is to have a cocktail party on the terrace of the function suite.

The cocktail party lasts for 2.5 hours and includes hot food and drinks that are served from a beautiful wooden table on the terrace.

If you time the wedding day with the sun then it is possible to enjoy the beautiful sunset from the terrace as you are enjoying the most incredible food and drinks.

The terrace will be set up with tables, chill out sofas and benches to create an informal dining experience.

This can be a nice option if you want a simple wedding or if you have plans to go straight to the airport for your honeymoon.

From the terrace you can hear the Yamaha grand piano that is just inside the function suite and it can be a nice option to hire Ibiza wedding pianist James to play the piano in the background as you eat.

Wedding Reception Option 2 – Full Wedding Experience at Hacienda Na Xamena

Hacienda Na Xamena has a reputation for being one of the best wedding venues in the world because you can have the full wedding experience in an incredible setting and with Michelin star food.

After your wedding ceremony, you get a drinks reception on the outside terrace and you can enjoy the sunset whilst chatting to your friends and drinking delicious cocktails.

When it is time to eat, you are invited into the banqueting area which is white, plain and air conditioned.

If the weather is not too hot then the huge glass sliding doors will be open giving you an inside/outside feel to the room and views of the beautifully clear night sky.

To complement the inside/outside theme, 5 trees will be brought into the banqueting suite and positioned in between tables to draw the connection to nature even closer.

The meal will be a 5-course banquet consisting of starters, sorbet, main, desert and cake and coffee and having experienced the restaurant food, I can tell you that this will be the best feast of your life!

After the meal, you can use the hotel’s microphone and speakers for the speeches and a full projector and screen is also available if required.

During the drinks reception and the meal it is possible to hire Ibiza wedding pianist James to play the grand piano and you can also hire him to DJ for your evening reception.

Dancing and Party at Hacienda Na Xamena

If you have chosen the full wedding experience option, then after your meal it is time to party.

The oriental red doors will be opened to reveal a small secret room with a dancing area and open bar and this is where the party will happen.

A chill out area will also be opened in another area of the function suite and this is for guests to chat and chill when they need a break from dancing.

The open bar is for a minimum of 2 hours, but you can book this for longer in advance or you can play it by ear on the night and keep extending it until 3am at the very latest.

Due to the remote location of the hotel and the special dancing area in the middle of the banqueting suite, it is possible to have a really good party at Hacienda.

This is one of the reasons that we love this venue – you can actually have the incredible party that you expect in Ibiza.

A lot of other venues are controlled by strict noise levels and cannot do this.

You will need to book a DJ or band to play for your evening party and they will need to bring all of the sound equipment with them.

If you hire Ibiza wedding DJ James to play for your evening party then he has a sound system that he has chosen especially for weddings at Hacienda Na Xamena.

It is also possible to hire a saxophone and bongo player to join James for the night to give you a modern day live band experience.

This is the best way to get lots of people dancing.
