With all this Pete Doherty Ibiza fiasco, the Hollyscoop gals realized that this Spanish island is a celebrity mecca recently. Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has been spotted in the paradise party town with her pals and jet setter Paris Hilton recently stopped by as well. We also hear singing sensation James Blunt has bought a luxurious new pad on Ibiza in the hope it'll provide the inspiration he needs to come up with a second album as successful as his first (Back To Bedlam). James has been staying in his 150-year-old hilltop villa, which has six bedrooms, a library, sun terrace and outdoor pool and staff quarters with his model girlfriend Petra Nemcova. James Blunt's celebrity neighbors on the Mediterranean island include French footballer Zinedane Zidane and Jade Jagger. We hear Kate Moss is a frequent visitor to Miss Jagger's 18th-century smallholding villa.
Wondering what's special about Ibiza? Well here is the scoop! Ibiza has long been popular with the party set who flock to famous dance clubs such as Amnesia and Privilege on its south coast. One of the oldest but best is Pacha, which was opened in 1973 by a Spanish hippie, and is where VIPs like Mick Jagger and Bono like to hang out. Music fans flock to the Manumission Club for Ibiza Rocks, a series of live concerts. As we reported earlier this morning, this was the event that Pete Doherty and his band Babyshambles missed.
Ibiza also offers world-class restaurants, bohemian boutique hotels and sandy beaches. Most celebrities rent villas in Ibiza and others stay at the Hacienda Na Xamena on the northwest coast. Built on a stunning Cliffside location, the Moroccan-themed hotel has incredible sea views and a spa offering hydrotherapy treatments. Meanwhile, dinner on the bougainvillea-filled patio at Los Dos Lunas is the perfect place to dine under the stars alongside the fashionable crowd.
