The Algarve is where it’s at, and newly opened Vila Joya perches on the Atlantic coast, ready to impress. Moorish architecture and stunning Portuguese coastline combine to create something exotic and enticing.
12 rooms and 8 suites all have stunning views over the azure Atlantic, fringed by palm trees and cypress groves in a gorgeous landscaped garden.
Pick your spot – from the gentle sand dunes by the waves or on a gentle grassy hill next to the pool – Vila Joya is a boutique find on a coastline dotted with hotels.
Classic designed suites often go for the simple monochrome as a balance to the riot of colours outside and suites feature a separate living area, dressing room and some have private gardens.
Go for a lazy breakfast overlooking the sea, but save some room for the hotel’s two Michelin star restaurant, that brings a north European menu to the Atlantic.
An informal pool bar is the perfect place for a sundowner after a day lazing in the sun. The staff can knock out some mean cocktails.
Hidden away is the hotel’s delectable spa which offers a range of treatments, facials and massages. The Moorish but modern influenced design is of five-star hotel quality plus you can overlook the ocean or even get a treatment outside.
