A grand village-style resort with impressive facilities as well as dedicated adults-only and family areas.

This colonial-style resort with Moorish buildings is in landscaped gardens and bordered by two white sandy coves. The authentic décor includes light blue colours, hand-made linens and local Porches pottery, and there are numerous pools, lakes and gardens to relax in. Take the steps down to a secluded golden-sand beach with access to sun loungers, or hop on the shuttle to nearby Armação Beach Club for a choice of watersports. There’s a pitch and putt, putting green and driving range and you can enjoy discounted rates at other nearby courses. Kids have their own three pools; adults can unwind on the Residences’ dedicated clifftop sun terrace, by the adults-only infinity pool or in two other pools.

Enjoy eleven restaurants and locally sourced food including meats, jam and wine from the resort’s farm and vineyard. Dress up for dinner at the two-Michelin-starred restaurant with a sea view, Ocean. The restaurant Bela Vita, has a garden terrace, while Adega is a typical Portuguese restaurant which serves innovative dishes. For fine dining, head to Aladin Grill, Atlântico and Japanese restaurant Mizu-Teppanyaki. If you’re with the family or little ones then Whale is ideal. Take a free shuttle to four different restaurants; there’s German Biergarten in Porches, as well as Arte Náutica and the informal Praia Dourada at Armação Beach Club.

Rooms are either in the main building, family-friendly Oasis Parc, or adults-only Residence area. Deluxe Garden View Rooms are in the main building, while the spacious Oasis Premium Garden View Suites have an open living/sleeping area. Oasis Rooftop Suites have a rooftop terrace with day beds and rain shower – perfect for couples wanting extra privacy. Oasis Family Garden View Suites are on the ground and first floors with an open-plan living and sleeping area plus a separate bedroom and terrace.
