This gracious palazzo with 20 guest accommodations (eight suites) is set in beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking the sea just outside the city of Albufeira. Originally a private villa, the hotel has been remodeled through the years to encompass additional rooms, a small oval outdoor swimming pool surrounded by manicured lawns and trees, and a very good spa with a fitness room, sauna, outdoor Jacuzzi and steam room. A Michelin two-star restaurant (where a table must be booked months in advance) is overseen by Austrian chef Dieter Koschina. Fancifully furnished Deluxe Terrace Rooms provide spacious living areas and private seaview balconies with daybeds from which to enjoy the sunset. There are also golf courses and José Ferreira’s golf academy nearby.
