Having opened their first hotel 15 years ago in Thailand, the Anantara collection has since grown to over 40 luxury hotels and resorts in city, island and desert settings across Asia, the Middle East, the Indian Ocean and Africa.
Anantara Vilamoura Resort is a landmark of quiet prestige, along southern Portugal’s picturesque Algarve coast. It is surrounded by its own Arnold Palmer designed Oceanico Victoria golf course, and the facilities are extensive, starting for example with five swimming pools.
Crucially, the Anantara Vilamoura Resort really and truly caters to everyone who wants to visit. Families find a wealth of activities including a kids club, couples are enveloped in luxury and high design, solo travellers find no shortage of entertainment and if you want to visit with friends there’s plenty to see and do and space to enjoy it in.
Food is one of the great joys of any holiday and with five restaurants and bars there’s no shortage of gastronomic intrigue. Gourmet Portuguese cuisine, buffet breakfasts, seafood and drinks available at every turn are all on the menu, and children are catered to as well.
Spa and leisure are covered with indoor and outdoor facilities. There’s a gym, ample classes such as yoga and Pilates, an indoor vitality pool, a sauna, a Turkish bath and naturally there is also an abundance of therapies on offer thanks to their highly trained staff.
Beyond the doors of the hotel, a visit to Portugal is also an opportunity to explore the surrounding area and its rich culture. There are wineries, olive groves and luminous fleur de sel fields, and the hotel is within a five-minute drive to Vilamoura’s marina, shops, clubs, bars, restaurants and beach.
