This glamorous yet laid-back hotel is in a great spot in Vilamoura, within easy reach of local golf courses.

This fresh hotel is set between Vilamoura Marina and chic Purobeach – a private beach club with two zones, Poolside and Beachfront. The golden beach is only a short walk away – spend lazy days in the sun and cool off with refreshing dips in the sea – or lounge by the hotel’s outdoor pool (with a separate kids’ pool). Stay refreshed throughout the day with snacks and drinks from the poolside bar. You can easily access the buzzing marina by a lift that takes you down to street level.

If you’re into golf, there’s a putting green as well as six local courses, and a complimentary shuttle will take you to the course of your choice. The resort’s health club has a gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath. While the kids are enjoying their activities and the golfers are out for the day, visit the luxury Tivoli Spa; it has a wide range of treatments and therapies, ranging from rejuvenating facials to invigorating massages.

There’s a choice of restaurants including steak, Portuguese, beachfront fusion at the new Purobeach restaurant, and buffet outlets. Pepper’s Steakhouse is known for its exceptional cuisine, melt-in-the-mouth steaks and superb views over the marina, with an extensive wine list accompanying all menus. Al fresco drinks are also available at the Side Bar where you can enjoy a glorious sunset while sipping a signature cocktail. Alternatively, stroll to the marina and choose from a host of waterside restaurants and lively bars.

The elegant rooms are fresh and contemporary, with a glass-fronted balcony to maximise the sea or marina views. Deluxe Rooms have a rain shower while Junior Suites have extra space, a separate living area and fantastic views.
