“Mata Hari” is the Japanese term for “Eye of the Sun”, and every Tuesday from noon, visitors to Blue Marlin Ibiza will embark on a transformational journey that guides them from sunset to moonlight, with a sparkling blue-water backdrop of Mykonos’ most beautiful beach and a lushly decorated interior that is inspired by the very best of South-East Asian design. Matahari is the mystical place where lovers and the curious meet, and its organisers are going all out to deliver a transcendental experience that engages the senses in every possible way.
New York City’s famed selector Serge Devant is already a firm favourite in the clubs of Ibiza, and he’ll be the weekly resident to provide a shimmering soundtrack to Matahari that journeys from the deeper shades of house into the hypnotic possibilities of techno. Serge Devant is one of the strongest underground selectors to ascend to residency status over the past few years, and he’s been carefully selected to provide the special atmosphere of Eastern mysticism and spiritual transcendence that Matahari will duely deliver.
