    Our opinion

    The Anantara Vilamoura resort is a convenient luxury destination for a one or two week stay in the Algarve.

    Hotel description

    The Anantara Vilamoura is situated in the renowned Vilamoura resort in the sunny Portuguese Algarve and is a perfect long-stay destinations for families in Portugal. Just a short distance from the seafront, the buildings overlook the idyllic blue pools, the hotel gardens, and the tranquil golf course beyond. In-keeping with the glowing reputation earned by the Anantara hotels, the atmosphere at this resort is both relaxed and luxurious. Enter through the light, spacious lobby as it introduces you to the hotel’s key signature contemporary design, characterised by geometric shapes, soft pastel greens and oranges, and the central crooked tree that steals the focus. The three outdoor pools are sleek and enticing, with loungers and parasols around the sides, and palm trees breaking up the views over the golf course. The indoor infinity-style pool provides an alternative for in the evenings, and is made particularly attractive by the floor-to-ceiling windows and low lighting. Guests can choose to dine in one of the many contemporary restaurants, each of which has its own unique style. The fresh Emo Gourmet Restaurant specialises in modernised Portuguese cuisine; the Sensorial Restaurant offers international dishes; the fluidly striking Aqua Asian Bistro serves eastern flavours; the beachfront Purobeach at Tivoli Marina Vilamoura provides a stunning backdrop and panoramic ocean views; and the Bartini Bar and Chill by the Pool Bar offer smaller, lighter meals and snacks. Guests can also indulge in the spa, which follows the ethos of other award-winning Anantara Spas. After a treatment in one of the private rooms, enjoy a yoga or Tai Chi class. At the end of your day, retire to your deluxe room and enjoy the modern comforts and effortlessly chic style. Large windows ensure that the rooms are always bright and welcoming, and that the neutral palette of warm creams, dark browns, and white, is off-set by the greens and blues of the views. So close to the world-famous Algarve coastline, the Oceanico Victoria Golf Course, and the cultural attractions of Albufeira, Faro, and Portomao, this is a deceptively secluded resort, perfect for families, friends, and couples searching for a slice of high-end modern luxury.
