A fresh cast of young holidaymakers head to a stylish new party destination for the time of their lives.
This fresh, modern series is set on the chic, fashionable island of Ibiza and focuses the action around a single hotel. From check-in to check-out, each episode follows the fortunes of the guests as they soak up the sun, look for romance and plunge into the island’s amazing nightlife. Fixed rig cameras capture all the drama as it unfolds from the hotel to the beach, and the staff quarters to the poolside.
The Resort (Ibiza Weekender) follows in the footsteps of the highly successful Magaluf Weekender series, which sees teenagers embarking on their first holiday abroad to the island of Majorca.
Poignant, engaging and thoroughly entertaining, this candid coming-of-age constructed reality show delivers a modern story about growing up.
