Each of the property's Deluxe Rooms faces south, some with balconies and others with terraces or gardens, whilst suites offer an extra level of space and luxury. For those in search of the ultimate base for a luxury family holiday, or for large groups of friends, the Vila Vita Parc Villas are an excellent, spacious and private option.


Relaxed days are spent around the pool or on the fabulous beach - perhaps the most secluded beach in Portugal - with a host of activities to keep everyone occupied. A great choice for an active holiday, complimentary activities include; a 9 hole pitch and put course, 18 hole putting green, 18 hole mini-golf course, table tennis and soccer. At an additional cost, tennis lessons, tennis courts, bicycle rental, yoga and Pilates classes are available and between July-September, horse-riding, surfing, deep-sea fishing and dive trips. Driving an hour away, discover the resort’s Herdade dos Grous vineyard or book a half or full day excursion aboard the hotel’s private 72-foot long yacht. The Algarve is quite simply a golf lover’s paradise and there is a multitude of courses to play at nearby.

A walk along the winding path of the sub-tropical park will lead you to the door of the Vila Vita Vital Spa and into a world of pampered indulgence. Fragrant steam and algae baths, classic and Far Eastern massages, as well as extensive offerings of high-quality beauty care, guarantee an experience for all of the senses.

We recommend a milk and honey bath for the ultimate in indulgence, with aromatherapy massages and mud treatments also a divine experience.


Dining is always a highlight, with ten amazing restaurants. Fine dining can be enjoyed at the two Michelin-starred Ocean or the sumptuous Aladin Grill with the accompaniment from a choice of 11,000 bottles from the vast wine cellar! More relaxed evening meals can be enjoyed at Whale or the Bela Vita; the resort's more informal family restaurants.
