Architects and designers have joined forces with engineers, illusionists, and screenwriters to craft immersive audio/visual experiences to accompany Sublimotion’s Sci-Fi cuisine. The result is a spectacular 3-hour banquet that takes patrons on a journey through different times, places, and stages of emotion, from the bottom of the ocean to a sexy 20th-century cabaret to a futuristic dinner with friends in 2050.

And just when you thought things couldn’t get any more exciting, here comes the new season. Every year, chef Paco Roncero partners with some of the greatest names in the culinary world to offer guests at Sublimotion an unprecedented gastronomic experience, worthy of countless Michelin stars.

The show-stopping multisensory adventure is masterminded by famous film directors and its soundtrack put together by award-winning composers like Lucas Vidal (2 Goyas and 1 Emmy). Responsible for the sound is the famous DJ and music producer Wally López, who brings a taste of Ibiza nightlife to this theatrical dinner, while Spain’s brilliant illusionist Jorge Blass uses his talent to blur the boundaries of reality.

Sublimotion is located inside Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza on Playa d’en Bossa and serves up Spanish avant-garde cuisine at its molecular best. A staggering 20-course tasting menu accompanied by wine and champagne is 1,500€ per person, but some say it’s a small price to pay for such a dramatic gastronomy-meets-virtual-reality experience.
