A sprawling resort with a glorious clifftop setting and Moorish echoes in its design.

This resort is in wonderful landscaped gardens and has spectacular ocean views. It’s ideal as a quiet base for relaxation and activities, and you’ll have easy access to the traditional fishing town of Lagos, just a 20-minute walk away or a short ride in the hotel’s free shuttle service (seasonal).

Spend your days next to the huge lagoon pool, getting stuck into a good book or just basking in the sunshine. Feel the sand between your toes at the smaller pool which has a natural sand floor and is great for little ones and building sand castles. There’s an excellent gym used by professional sports teams, a driving range, two tennis courts and exercise classes including yoga. A weekly activities programme (seasonal) offers a range of excursions such as a guided bike tour of Lagos, horse riding and surfing lessons (local charge). During the summer, kids can enjoy the Caskiddy Kids’ Club, leaving parents time to unwind at the renovated spa - fitted with a new sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi and spectacular ice fountain.

Enjoy delicious international and Portuguese cuisine at a range of excellent restaurants. Senses Restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine with a twist, a show kitchen and fantastic Atlantic Ocean views from a spacious outdoor terrace. Mundi Restaurant serves contemporary and innovative dishes using fresh, local produce. The chic new Lighthouse Bar is a great spot to enjoy a signature cocktail, while The Gastropub next door serves authentic meals and snacks. Head to the seasonal Sandy Bay Pool Bar for light snacks and drinks during the daytime.

The luxurious and contemporary rooms are in five wings, each styled with influences from either Portugal, Europe, Asia, Africa or South America. Twin Rooms overlook the resort, and we recommend upgrading to a Sea View Room for great views. Spacious Suites have a living room and include extras such as an espresso machine and luxurious L’Occitane toiletries. One or Two Bedroom Apartments are also available.
