By the evening all roads led to the eagerly anticipated Purobeach Illetas Grand Opening party which was the event everyone was talking about. On arrival, guests were treated to copious amounts of premium champagne, spirits and an endless stream of delightful and delicious canapes which seemed to set the tone for the evening.
Dinner was equally impressive and had a menu that consisted of a divine selection of Fine Claire oysters, mixed sashimi with salmon, tuna and butterfish and Piri-piri Prawns to name but a few culinary treats. My favourite dishes were the savoury Kobe beef carpaccio with truffle vinaigrette and Japanese mushrooms and the tasty Iberico ham with black olive bread. The Tahitian strawberries for dessert were a real crowd pleaser too.
Over 1,000 guests were in attendance for this spectacular gathering ranging from a number of VIPs, dignitaries, celebrities, local and international media, who all came together to pay homage to Purobeach Illetas and it didn’t let anyone down.
This easy on the eye and well-appointed beach haven offers direct access to the sea as well as a number of other spaces including its ravishing restaurant, sizeable terrace bar which affords breathtaking panoramic views of the Mediterranean sea and Palma Bay. There are also a number of serene white cotton sun loungers, Balinese beds, parasols, beach zones, an Eden zone and a cave too, ensuring there is something for everyone to explore.
The dazzling landscape coupled with the glamorous, suave and sophisticated crowd was the perfect backdrop for the Puro music experience to take centre stage. A first class audio visual show on the huge LED screen was matched by the sensational DJ set from special guest international DJ, N’Dinga Gaba and talented singer Sabrina Chyld who were both joined on stage by Puro’s music and DJ extraordinaire, Sebas Ramis.
Together, the talented trio kept the packed dance floor moving until the very end, playing a superb selection of soulful deep house mixed with a number of 80’s classics from favourite artists such as Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder. However, my highlight of the evening had to be when the dynamic DJ duo played the legendary Bob Marley’s ‘Buffalo Soldier’ which got the loudest cheer of the night from the pulsating party goers.
Purobeach Illetas was a truly memorable launch event with outstanding music, sublime cuisine, elegant guests and a fantastic atmosphere throughout.
The Puro Group has firmly laid down the foundations on a truly international scale and future plans will see the brand expand to Morocco, Egypt and Greece with additional projects in Mexico and the Caribbean. I am looking forward to returning to Purobeach Illetas to sample more of this exciting beach club sanctuary.
