This exquisite hotel is in a first-class golfing spot in the Algarve and has excellent dining options.
Anantara’s first foray in Europe sets the bar high. It’s in a prime spot, on the quiet outskirts of Vilamoura overlooking the landscaped Arnold Palmer-designed Victoria Golf Course which annually hosts the Portugal Masters. It’s still just a 15-minute drive from the beautiful red cliffs of Praia da Falésia and restaurants, bars and shops at Vilamoura Marina – the largest in Portugal. Kids can enjoy activities ranging from dance to football, leaving grown-ups to escape to shady poolside cabanas, lined with palm trees and with Sunshine Butlers on hand to serve refreshing drinks. Take the free daily shuttle to Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Hotel for the newly renovated Purobeach Vilamoura – an Algarve beach club hot spot where you’ll have free use of sun loungers.
For authentic Portuguese cuisine, we can’t recommend dinner at Emo Restaurant highly enough. It's overseen by Head Chef Bruno Viegas and Wine Guru Bruno Cunha, who combine superb local dishes, from braised octopus with sweet potato dumpling to egg pudding with lemon crunch, with 350 of the finest wines. Anantara are renowned for this kind of attention to detail and bespoke service; choose a tailored Dining by Design evening to enjoy butler service at a private table, where you can toast the sunset in a picturesque spot of your choice.
The sleek rooms are open-plan, with sliding wooden doors to separate the bedroom and bathroom. Each has a balcony with a day bed and walk-in rain shower plus a separate tub. Upgrade to the swanky Golf Suite for your own bar, butler service and beautiful views over the immaculate green fairway from a private balcony.
