Making its debut into Europe, Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas brings its authentic luxury to southern Portugal’s picturesque Algarve coast with the launch of Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort.
Nestled amongst orange grove trees and undulating wetlands, Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort brings to life Anantara’s ethos of connecting modern travellers with authentic destinations and ensures the brand’s signature Thai hospitality is paired with indigenous style and flavour.
All of the resort’s 280 newly upgraded guest rooms boast soft touches reflecting the natural woods and fibres of the region creating a chic and comforting place to relax and unwind overlooking views of picturesque gardens, swimming pools and the prestigious fairways of the golf course. Anantara Vilamoura has teamed up with local artisans from the TASA Project and some unique pieces can be found in the 17 Anantara Suites, with guests being able to appreciate the hand woven pool bags, locally sourced cork coasters and signature Algarvian ceramic fruit bowls. Further comforts include an in-room wine humidor, pillow menu and on-call butler service to attend to guests’ every need. Suite guests also have exclusive access to the indoor pool and sauna at the Anantara Spa, which looks out onto the rolling greens. The prestigious Presidential Suite offers an impressive terrace with a private dining area, a new Jacuzzi and a sundeck for enjoying balmy evenings with friends.
To make holidays a truly relaxing experience for parents and one that kids will remember forever, Anantara has partnered with World Wide Kids Company, the resort childcare specialist. The new Adventurers Crèche and the Adventurers Kids Club is fully equipped with everything for youngsters to have fun, allowing parents to relish some quiet time alone. At a resort where indulgence blends authentic indigenous elements and international flair, the newly renovated Anantara Spa offers a wide selection of therapies including the signature Traditional Thai Massage, centuries-old Ayurveda rituals, and treatments using locally-sourced ingredients such as Algarvian citrus fruits, figs and almond powder.
Culinary excellence is at the heart of the Portuguese culture. Using his deep expertise in Portugal’s culinary traditions, Executive Chef Bruno Viegas has woven his passion throughout Anantara Vilamoura’s six bars and restaurants. Anantara’s signature culinary concepts offer unique and engaging experiences. Presenting one of the most diverse Portuguese wine collections in the Algarve, resident Wine Guru António Lopes, who was voted Best Sommelier of Portugal in 2014, hosts tasting sessions which can include a private visit to a local vineyard. Guests can also experience the Wine Guru’s expertise when indulging in Dining by Design, which offers a choice of connoisseur menus coupled with idyllic settings, alongside the services of a personal chef and butler, ensuring a wonderfully romantic occasion.
Guests can discover the well-kept secrets of the Algarve with a myriad of activities and guided excursions, including a tasting tour of the ubiquitous Ria Formosa with oyster shucking and freshly prepared seafood from a local fisherman; or escape to the countryside with a local guru who transcends your afternoon into a historical adventure through the local villages and towns surrounding the area, uncovering the fascinating origins and history of agricultural treats such as almonds, figs, oranges and olives.
Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort’s unique signature appeals are matched by the distinct discovery of the Algarve. Famed as one of Europe’s most sought-after holiday destinations, this southernmost region of Portugal boasts a coastline of pristine beaches, sandy coves and breath-taking cliffs, whitewashed fishing villages and castle towns, olive groves, wineries and golf courses. A bastion of Algarve prestige, guests can take advantage of a sophisticated retreat that feels naturally exclusive, and offers unique destination experiences.
