The Times “50 Great Spa Holidays for 2014″  by Caroline Sylger Jones
“JUST RELAX   39.Cas Gasi Ibiza:  This elegant, civilised and very private 12-room hotel is the perfect place to hole up. There’s a cute little spa with a wonderfully large hot tub, and wellbeing breaks with treatments, yoga and Pilates can be arranged with talented concierge company Ibiza Balance. Anika is a seriously good osteopath and deep massage therapist, while shiatsu with Miriam De Santos is not to be missed. Afterwards, curl up in a hammock or beside the pool and dream of an exceptional dinner.”

Condé Nast Johansens “Luxury Hotels & Spas 2014″
“A former country house turned boutique hotel, Cas Gasi in Santa Gertrudis, Ibiza, is one of those up-your-sleeve places you save for the end of the summer (but tell very few about). It’s low key loveliness nested right in the thick of this beautiful island is totally discreet. Get off the beaten track, up into the hills and flop by the pool of this chilled-out escape to hear your body  sing with relief and your skin glow a little more. Surrounded by pine forests, olive groves and organically-fed veggie patches with almond, fig and carob trees trickling down the hillside, Ibiza’s Cas Gasi is bursting with all the best spoils of the Med. Nowhere is this more true than in the utterly exclusive restaurant where the ingredients are seasonal, packed with flavour and determined by produce grown at Cas Gasi’s very own organic plot. The relaxed and at-home vibe is a favourite among Ibizan-famed celebrity guests – and no wonder when the intimate 10 rooms and suites are this cosy and comfortable. Each one with their own character, uniquely decorated in a rustic Spanish theme filled with cool terracotta-tiled flooring, striking fabrics and warming chintz-a-copia.”

Vogue Brasil “La Isla Bonita” por Alline Cury, Philippe Kliot
“ A apenas 12 km do epicentro da badalaçao de Ibiza fica o hotel Cas Gasi, refúgio eco-friendly cercado por pinheiros, oliveiras e flores, que atrai hóspedes em busca de discriçao total. Sua sede de 1880, com grandes terraçós e tetos de madeira típicos de arquitetura de Ibiza, foi toda restaurada pela familia Trigueros, que fundou o hotel em 1998. O Cas Gasi valoriza tudo que é home-made e ofrece una experiencia luxuosa e cozy, a començar pelo café da manha: as geleias sao feitas com frutas colhidas no pomar da casa; os paes e croissants também sao produzidos por lá, os queijos idem. Para os que nao querem sair do hotel por nada (a privacidade é máxima: sao apenas 12 quartos), ha massagens, aulas de ioga e pilates durante o dia. À noite, a boa pedida é explorar o menú do restaurante de cozinha mediterránea exclusivo para hóspedes, que só utiliza em suas receitas productos orgánicos, peixes e carnes da regiao.”

 The Vogue Blog “The Good Life” by Fiona Giolfar
“Cas Gasi, the Ibizan retreat frequented by Vogue photographers Mert & Marcus, makes the ideal summer escape. Set in the idyllic countryside of Mediterranean pine forests and olive groves, this 130-year-old country house has been transformed into a palatial hacienda equipped with private spa service, individually decorated rooms and a restaurant that serves up homegrown organic produce.”

Marie Claire South Africa  “Ibiza Beyond the Clubs” by Tabitha Lasley
“Cas Gasi is for many the favorite bolthole on the island. It’s tucked away in the verdant Sant Rafel valley, and still grows its own almonds, figs and lemons, and presses its own olive oil. The terracotta-tiled farmhouse was originally a family home, which has been converted over the course of 10 years. Though rooms are luxurious – think four-poster beds, huge, deep baths, Penhaligon toiletries – it feels cozy and informal.”

Eluxe Magazine “Chilled Out in Eco Ibiza” by Chere di Boscio
“But almost everything about Cas Gasi, Ibiza, fits in with any definition of luxury. Gardens bursting with velvety roses, peppery petunias and sweet honeysuckle are abundant, as is the fresh, organic food; myriad thick, glossy coffee table books for your reading pleasure; bouquets of peach-scented roses in makeshift vases, and Iberian antiques adding charm to each room. The ever-smiling, amicable staff are prepared to make each visitor as comfortable as possible: want to eat lunch at 5pm? Friendly Tony will make sure it’s done. Duvet too warm?  Handsome Diego will ensure lighter blankets are brought immediately. Can’t function without coffee? Forget an espresso shot–cheerful Bandana, from Nepal, will bring you an entire pot, just for you. But Cas Gasi is so intrinsically comfortable, you’ll hardly need to ask for a thing. Bedding is soft but beds are firm; technology is all top-notch (though you’ll probably be too busy enjoying the great outdoors to use it), lounge chairs are dressed in sumptuous terrycloth; antique iron patio chairs are softened by fat, fuschia cushions. My room, in the main house, was just off a foyer adorned with a pink silk chaise longue from the 19th century, set off by Moroccan kilms and dark polished wood doors and floors. Inside, I had my own balcony overlooking the pool, exposed stone walls, and a spacious ensuite decorated with inky blue Moorish tiles. Bountiful bowls of organic fruit and roses were brought up daily. Peace surrounds this hotel; that’s why people come. Guests at Cas Gasi are as far from the belching, bloated masses in Ibiza Town or San Antoni as can be. This is an older, upscale set, mainly couples who come armed with books, sunblock, iPads and very expensive sunglasses. They sip fine wine and dine on locally caught grilled fish, organic salad greens picked right on the premises, and eggs laid by Cas Gasi’s chickens. Massages, yoga classes and beauty treatments are booked for daytime treats, punctuated by dips in the pool and excursions into town. Oh, and let’s not forget the hotel’s eco credentials: almond, olive, carob, and fig trees all grow organically on the estate, as do orange, lemon, apricot, cherry, plum, and pomegranate trees. A wide variety of organic vegetables is also grown here, as are Monastrell grapes, which are then pressed to make a rich house wine. While ‘luxury’ may have different definitions for different people, at Cas Gasi it clearly relates to the purity of air and food, the sensual pleasures of a scented garden or a velvety lawn; expansive personal space, and perhaps above all, peace and tranquility– all of which are increasingly rare for city dwellers. Each of these factors certainly did add pleasure and comfort to my personal experience here, confirming Cas Gasi’s status as one of the Balearic’s most luxurious hotels, no matter what the definition.”

The Vogue Blog Russia “Ibiza, Cas Gasi: A Hotel Worth Coming For” by Pavel Matjevev
“I’d like to develop the Ibiza subject I’ve started in the previous post by a message about a hotel I’ve stayed at, and, if you have an opportunity, I recommend you to do the same. Its name is CasGasi and it’s situated right in the middle of the island. The next beach is at least 10 km away and there are mostly fields and hills around. And this is how the entrance to the hotel looks like. It’s base is a late XIX century manor. Current owners acquired it around 24 years ago to live here and 10 years after they decided to turn it into a boutique hotel. The hotel has a dozen rooms, each with a different interior. Make a note of the ceiling. The designers of these interiors paid a lot of attention to details. They have 2 pools. How can one survive without a swimming pool on Ibiza? A fine young man is mixing cocktails in the bar. Gin & tonic with rose petals is one of his best ones. And the hotel’s owner is an elegant lady called Margaret von Korff.  She is from Barcelona, but comes from a German family with roots in the Baltic/Russian nobility. Fruit, vegetables and herbs for the restaurant’s kitchen are delivered straight from the nearby orchard and garden. It looks like no meal in Spain happens withoutan oil can. They produce their own olive oil. A couple of weeks ago this industrial design object found its place on my kitchen.”

“På Ibizas landsbygd mitt på ön utanför Sant Mateu ligger det ombonade boendet Cas Gasi, ett vackert agroturismo i lyxvariant där ägarinnan, Margaret Von Korff, som så många andra på Ibiza värnar om lokalproducerat och ekologiskt.”

“BEST FOR WELLNESS: CAS GASI. A country house set amidst orange, olive and fig groves. As well as a spa with a whirlpool bath and sauna, a team of therapists is a phone call away for yoga, Pilates, and beauty treatments…”

The Royal Photography Society Journal “The Sweet Spot” by Fenton Medallist Jeff Vickers MBE FRPS
“A key point is that the light in Ibiza is very special, just like the artists recognized in Provence. It makes such a difference to have this quality of light, allowing you to take pictures handheld, using your lens’ “sweet spot” (the optimum aperture for sharpness, around f/8 on most lenses) …It was in late September that I discovered the lovely hotel Cas Gasi, a luxury country hideaway, specializing in all necessary services for photo shoots. As I drove up the drive early one morning were former Spice Girl G.H. and the photographer Ben Watts, with assistants, art director, stylist, client and very extensive photographic equipment. The following morning, I got up early to go for a jog around the estate, and was intrigued to find the whole place abuzz with activity: models having their hair and makeup done, an early breakfast being prepared, food and drink being packed for a trip, and equipment being checked over. We decided to convert our home into a small hotel 12 years ago, says Margaret von Korff, who bought the 4 hectare property 24 years ago with her husband. Shortly after we began, we had a call from London-based production company Management and Production. It wanted 10 rooms in late October for a Top Shop shoot off season. After this, news got round the creative circle that Cas Gasi was the perfect place for photo shoots off season. We have teams of people that can find and rent houses with beautiful pools, says Margaret. And have built up some of the best contacts over the years, to organize anything that is required for a photo shoot. We speak English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. We have free WIFI, and all the charging necessary for computers and digital photography. Over the last 10 years, we have had extensive experience of collaborating with top photographers, such as Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and many more, and have worked with very important clients and for the covers of the best magazines.”

Wandermagazin  “Zu Besuch in Margarets Garten” vo Eva Hakes
“Sternstunden Mediterraner Lebensart…. Leicht, elegant und verfuehrerisch war dieses Olivenoel, wie eigentlich alles in Cas Gasi, Margarets kleinem, feinen Landhotel. Umgeben von vier Hektar Gaerten mit duftenden Rosen, ueppigen Bougainvillae, dicken Kuerbissen, blitzenden Tomaten und melancholisch im Wind raschelnden Olivenbaeumen ist das Hotel ein stilles Refugium auf der sonst so quirligen Insel Ibiza. VIPs aus unterschiedlichen Branchen und incognito reisende Stars und Sternchen haben hier bereits die Reize laendlich mediterraner Idylle auf sich wirken lassen. Dass Margaret von Korff, in Barcelona aufgewachsene Tochter deutscher Eltern, konsequent ihre Ziele verfolgt, glaubt man ihr ohne weiteres….  Zwar beginnt der Luxus dieses Hotels mit den Antiquitaeten und wertvollen Stoffen, die aus jedem Zimmer einen individuellen Traum vom Leben auf dem Lande machen. Es sind aber subtilere Reize, die dazu fuehren, dass man am Ende des Tages dem Cas Gasi verfallen ist.  Es beginnt mit dem Duft der Rosen aus dem eigenen Garten,  genauso wie mit dem Blick von der Fruehstuecksterrasse in den schattigen Palmengarten, dem unvergleichlichen Geschmack der Eier und Tomaten, die frisch aus dem eigenen, biologischen Garten kommen, und das kaltgepresste Olivenoel….das ist der echte Luxus.”

Elle UK
“Don’t let you fool you into thinking that Cas Gasi is a party hotel. This rustic retreat, surrounded by vineyards and hills, is anything but, yet you’re only 15 minutes from Ibiza Town. Elegantly decorated in Spanish-Moorish style, with elaborate reclaimed doorways, four-poster beds and antique furniture, it’s opulent in a shabby-chic, Ibizan way. The 12 rooms have Yves Klein blue tiles and exclusive products in the bathroom. The central hallway, with roaring fire in winter, is the heart of the house, where you can curl up with a book from the library. Two pools are surrounded by tulle-draped daybeds and, even when the hotel is full, there is still an air of privacy. The restaurant (mostly locally sourced organic) has pretty views over the countryside and pool and the breakfast of fresh local produce will ease the harshest of Ibizan hangovers.”

Tatler Travel Guide 2012 “The 101 Best Hotels in the World”
“Secrets not for sharing: a whole world away from the Ibiza we know and love (and fear the most). This is a hotspot to flop, surrounded by fruitful trees of mellow-yellowness. It’s the inside track for people who actually have houses here, who send guests over when their own joint is full, or come for a snooze in winter when they don’t want to open their own pad. Cas Gasi is low-key – you’ll get your own fob for the front gate so there’s no anxiety about getting home late. And, don’t worry, they’ll still be serving yoghurt and melon, bread and honey, whenever you finally decide to get up. Bedrooms are big and breezy, unexpectedly filled with chintz. At the restaurant, shurp away at sun-temperature homegrown tomato gazpacho. Then there’s the pool itself, a real lazy-day place to unfurl.”

The Daily Telegraph Travel Supplement “Best Luxury Hotel in Ibiza” by Annie Bennett
“When it comes to laid-back rural bliss, it doesn’t get much better than this. Located in the middle of the island, the hotel was formerly the home of the family which runs it, and the personal touch is still very much in evidence in the individually designed rooms. It is surrounded by olive, almond and fig trees, and has a lovely pool and a small spa. Much of the produce used in the restaurant comes from the organic vegetable garden.”

“SSSHHH…. One of those places the celeb’s don’t want you to know about, tiny Cas Gasi in Ibiza, was a well kept secret…until now…. With red-tiled floors, white grand piano, comfy sofas and the odd antique, it’s just like staying in your most chic friend’s hacienda home, which is probably why stars like Gisele love it too. If you want to follow in their footsteps, book the Romanticismo room, for its sexy canopy bed…”

Outstanding 100 Ibiza
“Cas Gasi is an oasis of calm, surrounded by lush orchards, rich olive groves and fragrant fruit trees. The century-old family finca’s immaculate stonewalls and traditional whitewashed façade ooze rustic charm, with the gorgeous flora that encompass the old building adding splashes of colour to a wonderfully picturesque setting. Cas Gasi was established 10 years ago when Margaret von Korff and Luis Trigueros decided to transform their home into a delightful boutique hotel. The hotel has two suites and eight  elegant double rooms, each of which has been individually decorated. For guests hoping to see the island from a new perspective, there is a 15-metre yacht for ocean outings, while those who’d rather stay put will do just as well relaxing in the hotel, enjoying a massage, or simply reading a book in the well-stocked library. Cas Gasí boasts two swimming pools; each hugged by verdant garden terraces. Breakfast is served al fresco, while the dinners are prepared from the delicious fresh produce picked straight from the hotel’s own organic vegetable garden.  Cas Gasi is a luxury country hideaway with all the trimmings of a five-star stay, and the authenticity of a Mediterranean home.”

CN Brides Honeymoon Guide “The Top 100 Honeymoon Destinations in the World”
“On an impossibly pretty hillside, this lovingly restored 19th-century finca is a boutique hotel with the feel of a family home. This is rural architecture Ibizan-style – juniper wood ceilings, whitewashed walls, large terraces. There are 12 rooms and Suites (the most private ones stand alone in the gardens) and the vibe is exclusive but relaxed. Olive and orange groves surround the house and the pool (the olive oil and much of the produce on the menu is home-grown). There’s a small spa and a gym, and bikes are available if you want to explore. Ibiza Old Town is just a 15 minute drive away. Wow Factor: the soothing fragrance of the gardens.”

Wall Street Journal “The Other Ibiza”  by Sally McGrane
“Beyond the club frenzy, Phoenician ruins, wild orchids and hidden vistas… A new wave of upscale rural hotels has begun to appear in the less- developed, less visited interior and northern part of the island. Twelve years ago, Margaret von Korff and her Ibiza-born husband opened  a 12-room luxury hotel  down some twisty back roads off the route to Santa Eularia. Cas Gasi, in the hamlet of Santa Gertrudis, offers its star-studded clientele hiking, biking and sailing along with meditation and yoga.”

Conde Nast Traveller  “Short breaks for Valentine’s Day”
“All insiders will tell you, there’s a lot more in Ibiza than meets the eye. Go off the beaten track even a fraction and you will discover a world of sleepy hill villages, wild forests, rambling orchards and crumbling farmhouses. Visit in February and a further surprise awaits: almond trees in full bloom, covering great swathes of the interior, with entire valleys exploding into glorious white and pink blossom. All this is complemented by an appealing combination of warm days and chilly nights. Front row seats for this extraordinary natural show are available at Cas Gasi, a 12-room property that spills down a hillside smothered by almond, fig and carob trees and which prides itself on being a hotel ‘for people who don’t like hotels’. Since opening in 1998, Cas Gasi has become popular with high profile guests who love its secluded location and low-key luxury… The estate produces its own organic vegetables, fruits, olive oil and free-range eggs and the meat and fish comes from local farmers and fishermen.”

Harper’s Bazaar  “Travel Guide 2010″
“Island treasure: Cas Gasi is Ibiza’s best kept secret, in the centre of the island. … this beautiful hacienda dates from 1880, and is surrounded by orchards with almond trees, olive groves and a vegetable garden. And if that’s not good enough for the club-weary, there are two luscious pool areas, a Jacuzzi and a sauna.”

“Uno de los alojamientos más especiales de la isla. Está a 12 km de la ciudad y cada habitación tiene una decoración exclusiva y está impregnada de aromas a jazmín y flor de azahar. Su spa está lleno de pequeños detalles y exquisitos tratamientos que lo hacen inolvidable..”

Conde Nast Traveller “Dip in, chill out”  by Paul Miles
“This 200-year-old farmhouse with traditional juniper ceilings is in a quiet and fairly remote location in the centre of the island. It is surrounded by olive groves, orange and almond orchards and pine trees. The owners, Margaret von Korff and Luis Trigueros, turned their family home and organic farm into a 12-bedroom hotel  about 10 years ago. There are fabrics in toile de Jouy and fleur-de-lis, and antique furnishings from India and Spain; bathrooms feature hand-painted Spanish tiles. There are rugs from Afghanistan and Turkey on the terracotta-tiled floors (with under-floor heating), and there is an enormous fireplace. One of the two spacious suites has a cozy, rather genteel library, and while not all the bedrooms have outside space, they do all overlook the gardens…”

Now Magazine
“Hidden in the heart of the Ibizan countryside, Cas Gasi is a slice of Balearic bliss. A-list guests  have stayed at this converted 19th century country farmhouse. It’s now a chic, whitewashed hacienda, which boasts an organic garden, two sleek swimming pools – each on different levels- and 12 stylish bedrooms with wooden –beamed ceilings, handcrafted terracotta tiles and brass beds.”

Honeymoon
“Romantics should head inland for accommodation. Here, nothing much detracts from the magic the Phoenicians felt and there aren’t many people about. In the past few years, a smattering of heady retreats has opened in the interior to cater to the spa set but for an authentic Ibizan treat, it has to be Cas Gasi. An elegant family-run converted finca, … the beds are big and covered in sublime linens, there are luxury bathroom amenities, a spa, fitness centre and two swimming pools.”

Blue Travel
“…e se a noite anterior foi de festa, o sossego do Cas Gasi será moito bem-vindo. Os cuartos e as suites sao muito comfortáveis, os jardins estao bem cuidados, a piscina convida a tardes inteiras de chillo ut e o spa pode ajudar a tirar-lhe o cansaço do corpo.”

El Pais “El Viajero” por Fernando Gallardo
“Al dar un giro en su vida, Margaret von Korff difícilmente podía imaginar que el turismo de lujo acabaría ocupándole todas las horas del día. La ex azafata de Lufthansa  sólo tenía miras, en realidad, por la agricultura biológica como panacea de una existencia sana y natural. Aunque pronto comprendió que la nueva bandera del hippismo en la isla pasaba por un negocio de hostelería rural.  Junto a marido, el abogado y navegante de origen ibicenco Luis Trigueros Juan, abrió hace unos meses, a otros huéspedes más rentables que los amigos, la casa de campo que ambos disfrutaban.  Cas Gasi es ahora uno de esos hotelitos que media Europa envidia por su sabor mediterráneo….”
