A glamorous, romantic and beautifully appointed 5* hotel on the Algarve surrounded by world-class golf courses
Stay at the stunning 5* Conrad Algarve Hotel in Portugal and play some of the best courses in Europe including the Vale do Lobo Ocean, Vale do Lobo Royal, Quinta do Lago North, Quinta do Lago South and Laranjal with our special preferential packages for accommodation, golf rounds, flights and transfers.
With 300 days of sunshine each year you probably don’t need reminding that you are virtually guaranteed good playing conditions regardless of when you visit the Algarve on Portugal’s south coast. Together with short flights from the UK and return club class flights with British Airways from Heathrow and Gatwick it is an accessible year-round destination for playing golf and relaxing in the sunshine.
The opening of the Conrad Algarve Hotel in a prime location just twenty minutes from Faro airport and on the doorstep of six of the region’s very best courses has been a game-changer. The hotel is beautifully designed and levels of attention to detail are high throughout. Standard rooms are bright, larger than average and well laid-out with very generous balconies, big rain showers, squishy sofas and chairs to relax in and bathrooms stocked with toiletries from Aromatherapy Associates.
We particularly love the spa: it’s incredibly luxurious and an absolute haven of tranquility featuring private spa cabanas attached to each treatment room. The sauna is flooded with natural light, treatments are high-tech and designed around your needs. You could easily end each day here with a superb massage or signature body treatment followed by time spent relaxing in the sauna and swimming pools.
Fine dining comes courtesy of the beautiful Gusto Restaurant with panoramic views of the Algarve. Head chef Heinz Beck is world-renowned from his tenure at the 3 Michelin-starred Waldorf Astoria Rome Cavalieri and he brings his expertise here with a Mediterranean-inspired menu using local ingredients and a standard befitting a 3 Michelin-star chef.
This modern hotel opened in 2012 and has a sophisticated and stylish look with beautifully designed and spacious rooms. The hotel overlooks a stunning infinity pool with views over the surrounding countryside and a Westerly aspect meaning you can watch the sunset with a cocktail on the terrace. In the evenings giant burners are lit around the pool which look beautiful and create a romantic and intimate environment. Balconies overlook the palms or the pool and are very spacious with a selection of comfortable seating. Rooms are finished to a very high standard and decorated in elegant shades of blue and grey with a flat screen TV, MP3 sound system and a Nespresso coffee machine. Marble bathrooms are stocked with Aromatherapy Associates toiletries and have a large rain shower and separate bath.
One of our favourite parts of the entire hotel is the penthouse Garden Rooftop Suite with its indoor pool and retractable glass roof, expansive sunset-facing terrace, private entrance and private access to the spa. This one bedroom suite is the perfect venue for a proposal, celebrating an anniversary, a birthday dinner or an intimate fully-catered dinner with friends. The pool can be covered to increase floor space and double up the wow factor, or left exposed in the event you fancy a dip during your party.
The hotel offers a number of local excursions including a fantastic clam-picking and oyster harvesting trip (which the chef will help you cook later) by boat through the Ria Formosa, birdwatching outings, plus wine tasting tours of the winery and vineyards at Quinta dos Vales, a few kilometres from Silves, in the very heart of the Algarve. The 50 hectare estate has won awards for producing the highest quality Portuguese wine. The estate is a wonderful place to spend the day as it also boasts a vibrant collection of sculptures.
The Conrad Algarve Spa & Health Club is one of the most luxurious and desirable spas in Portugal, if not Europe. It is a real haven and provides holistic therapies, combining meditation and relaxation, as well as special body treatments. This is a real oasis of calm which adopts a contemporary approach to rekindling your energy and rediscovering your spirit. From signature body treatments to high performance facial techniques and oxygen inhalation therapy, the products and treatments draw on local techniques, culture and surroundings resulting in effective and powerful treatments.
Refreshingly personalised packages and a collection of couture treatments mean that you can spend an hour or the whole day being rejuvenated. When we visited we found the spa to be incredibly relaxing and instantly calming. The scent of the Aromatherapy Associates products being used fills the air, staff are warm and welcoming, and we loved the private cabanas attached to the treatment rooms which allow you to relax before or after treatments.
All-day dining is offered in the form of 3 restaurants and 3 bars including cocktails served on the pool deck. The hotel’s flagship restaurant is Gusto by Heinz Beck, a sleek and contemporary Mediterranean restaurant with Scandinavian design with Michelin-starred chef Heinz Beck at the helm. Offering innovative fine dining in a bustling, vibrant atmosphere, including an open display kitchen and an alfresco terrace with super views. The restaurant also features a Cuban Cigar menu, cocktail bar and extensive wine menu.
Louro offers modern Portuguese cuisine with delicious fresh food inspired by Portuguese culinary heritage, available all day. As well as indoor seating, Louro extends to a small outdoor seating pergola with a fireplace. Private dining is available here on the chef’s table which allows you to enjoy cookery courses and interactive dining experiences.
Other options include the Lago Lounge offering a selection of Sri Lankan teas, classic cocktails, champagne and patisserie delights with an extensive terrace overlooking the gardens and pools of the hotel. Dado is the South American-inspired pool side restaurant features refreshing cocktails and a South American influenced menu, taking in the best dishes of this part of the world. Dado Seafood showcases the freshest local seafood together with lobster or crab from the live aquarium. The infinity pool bar, Sereno, serves cocktails and freshly cut fruit all day.
