  • About this holiday

    Blue & Green The Lake Spa Resort is set beside the marina and beach at Vilamoura on the Algarve in Portugal. Within easy reach of numerous quaint, stylish shops, bars, and restaurants, but with an abundance of high quality features of its own, the Lake Spa Resort is suited to those looking to get out and about exploring the culture of the Algarve, as well as those who would rather stay within the well-equipped resort. Excellent links to Faro also mean that this is a convenient destination for a one or two week break in Portugal.

    Our opinion

    This is a very well equipped five-star resort perfect for families and couples looking for modern luxury.

    Hotel description

    Near the seafront in Vilamoura, on the Algarve, the five-star Blue & Green Lake Spa Resort offers seclusion and luxury for couples, a stunning location for activity holidays, and great facilities for families. The spacious guestrooms follow a neutral colour scheme that channels the hues of the pools, lakes, and ocean beyond the windows. Organic textures, in the woven pillowcases, the throws at the end of the bed, the luxurious crisp white sheets, and the wooden walls separating the en-suite from the main bedroom, give the rooms a very unique feel. The bathrooms, tiled floor to ceiling in the style of a wet room, appear to be simply an extension of the rooms, creating a very intimate effect. These luxury rooms are finished with a furnished balcony and beautiful garden, sea, or panoramic views. Each room booking is accompanied by complimentary access to the Spa and gym. The resort has three outdoor swimming pools, one of which has the unique feature of a sandy bottom, which brings the beach even closer to your room. In the evenings, guests can enjoy indulgent cuisine in one of the resort’s three restaurants, followed by drinks in one of the two bars. Fusion Restaurant specialises in a balance of oriental and Mediterranean flavours, which are served in a crisp, bright dining room. Gustatio (meaning ‘tasting’) has been inspired by both the cuisine and the design of the Romans and the Visigoths. The dining room derives its warmth from the soft creams and light browns of its palette, and offers a rich breakfast buffet in the mornings. Mare Nostrum, however, may be the highlight of your evenings at the Lake Spa Resort. On its own floating esplanade, the Mare Nostrum serves a range of dishes based around meat, fish, and seafood, infused with the flavours of the region, in a relaxed and romantic setting. Relax late into the evening in either the African-inspired Zanzibar, or in the Blue Lagoon pool bar. During the day, you can sample hot drinks and light snacks in the Jaipur café-bar. The spa at the Lake Spa Resort is inspired by treatments and beliefs from across the world’s five continents. Enjoy the indoor hydrotherapy pool before indulging in a Japanese Shiatsu massage, or an Indian Ayurvedic massage, in one of the sleek, ambient treatment rooms. Families staying at the Lake Spa Resort will enjoy the Kids’ Club facilities, and the wide range of interconnecting and multi-bedroom accommodation options. For a peaceful long-stay holiday on the Algarve, or a fun week with the family, we would highly recommend the services, style, and location of the Lake Spa Resort.
