A new independent boutique hotel is opening its doors on the bohemian island of Formentera this August, offering Mediterranean escapes with a culinary emphasis.

Teranka is a 35-key beachfront property set among shady pine trees and overlooking the sea. The hotel’s name refers to the feeling of being connected to the earth and anchored in its location, and as such, the building has been built in harmony with its surroundings. Handmade, dry stone walls complement intricate plasterwork and carpentry that showcase unique Formentera techniques that are a result  of the historic Al Andalus Arabic influence on the island. 


The philosophy extends to its culinary offering, too. The onsite restaurant Vert Mer will serve an all-day menu from acclaimed Andalusian chef Juan Martín in a relaxed setting, but once the sun has set, Vert Mer will transform into a French fine-dining experience from three-Michelin-starred chef Emmanuel Renaut. 

The hotel is also celebrating its opening season with a glamorous summer pop-up in the form of Nobu Formentera, which will be housed on the property’s rooftop. Offering handcrafted nigiri, sushi, sashimi, and other classics that Nobu is internationally recognised for, the venue will also provide diners with panoramic views over the island and its azure waters.

Creative installations, sculptures and art will also be dotted throughout the property and its Mediterranean gardens, alongside a shaded yoga and meditation terrace, swimming pool surrounded with luxurious day beds and loungers on the beach.
