The playboy who built himself a playground reveals all in his hard-hitting memoir. The iconic hotelier reflects on a fast life of hedonism and the globe-trotting backstory that influenced his set-up of pioneering Balearic boho bolthole, Pikes.
Now at the grand old age of 83-years-young the man Boy George dubbed “the real Hugh Hefner” has decided to tell all…
The globetrotting story of how Tony Pike reached Ibiza is as fascinating as the shameless shenanigans and scrapes he conjured up on the island.
This is a man who built himself up from nothing…who travelled the world…and became the living embodiment of the phrase ‘work hard, play hard’.
Who bought a 500-year-old Spanish farmhouse with no electricity, running water, sanitation…or rooms…and turned it into the best rock and roll hotel in the world.
Tony looks back on the extreme highs and lows of an unparalleled life, goes exclusively behind the scenes of the Club Tropicana video shoot which put his unique hotel on the map and discusses his relationships with guests/friends including George Michael, Freddie Mercury, Julio Iglesias and lover Grace Jones.
