Location

Nestled in lush and flowery subtropical gardens, Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa surrounds its little guests in a bubble of happiness and well-being. The establishment, with its Algarve architecture and Moorish influences, enjoys an exceptional setting, between rocky coast, fine sandy beach and romantic bay.

Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean gives it an ideal seaside atmosphere for family holidays, in a region where the sun shines 300 days a year. Whatever the time of year, the Algarve welcomes you with a mild and pleasant Mediterranean climate.

Accommodation

Nestled in the heart of the cliffs and surrounded by 54 acres of lush gardens, Vila Vita Parc’s rooms, suites and villas are both sophisticated and refined, offering spectacular views of the flowery park or the ocean.

The Junior Suite, with its wide glass doors that let in the light, is bathed in an airy and contemporary style inspired by Portuguese seaside homes, and opens onto a terrace or private garden. Spread over two levels, the suite perfectly welcomes young parents with babies.

Ideal for families of 4 people, the Family Oasis Suite promises comfort, space and functionality. The suite consists of a master bedroom with an open living room, a second bedroom with twin beds and a sumptuous bathroom. If you are lucky enough to stay in one of the suites on the first floor, you will enjoy a sublime 40 m² roof terrace. The ground floor suites offer a sumptuous view of the hotel’s flowered gardens.

Do you need to be pampered and to enjoy a moment of intense well-being? Book a cosy stay in the Spa Suite, adjacent to the hotel’s spa. A suite of choice for families looking for softness, it has an elegant entrance hall that leads to your cosy cocoon, with a bedroom, lounge, private bathroom and steam bath.

Tribes looking for luxury and Mediterranean charm have their eyes only on the Villas at Vila Vita Parc, which includes the stunning Villa Al Mar, whose large windows open onto the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean. Organised into 3 distinct suites of generous proportions (each with a bright room, an adjoining bathroom and a private terrace), the villa takes root in a sumptuous garden where a private swimming pool invites you to idleness, without complexes. Families find themselves in the nicely bathed in light living space for moments of sharing.

 

Gastronomy

Famous for its cuisine and refined wines, the Algarve seduces and enchants the taste buds. Its main course? The cataplana, the fruit of the encounter between land and sea. This traditional recipe is actually a steamed stew, prepared with fish or seafood, broth and fresh vegetables. To immerse yourself in this gastronomic culture, visit one of the  10 restaurants in Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa.

Enjoy an extraordinary culinary experience at Restaurant Océan, awarded with two Michelin stars thanks to the constant efforts of Chef Hans Neuner and his enthusiastic team. Decorated in a palette of blue tones – reminiscent of the ocean at the bottom of the picture – and golden, and embellished with meticulously laid out marine touches here and there, the place is chic and sophisticated. The team will be at your service and will advise you on one of the 560 national and international wine references to accompany your dishes.

For an express trip to the land of a Thousand and One Nights, visit the Aladin Grill Restaurant. A cosy atmosphere, Moorish style, the place draws its inspiration from the Arab world whose influence persists in the Algarve. You can enjoy tasty dishes based on grilled fish, meat and seafood, complemented by an astonishing selection of award-winning wines.

It is with great pride that the hotel opens the doors of its majestic wine cellar with its intimate atmosphere where more than 11,000 bottles are hidden. Located about 8 metres underground, this sacred place is made of clay bricks more than 150 years old and imported from Egypt, Austria or Greece. Travel back in time and space, guided by passionate and experienced sommeliers.

Whatever the case, there is something for everyone at Vila Vita Parc  Resort & Spa, from the relaxed atmosphere on the beach to the discovery of typical Portuguese dishes in an enchanting setting, the hotel offers a wide range of possibilities for the whole family.

Children from 4 to 11 years old are welcome at Annabella’s Kids Park where they spend all their energy sliding down slides, turning swings and jumping on trampolines. In the company of qualified children’s entertainers, they engage in all kinds of fun activities (sports, adventure games), creative activities (painting, cooking classes) and festive activities (organised theme evenings).

Teenagers from 12 years old join their new group of friends for exciting outings!

Of course, this programme would not be complete without wellness and fitness sessions!

Between water parks, adventure parks, shopping trips, nature corners, the Algarve is a gold mine for family outings!

Located 40 minutes by car from the hotel, Lagos has a beautiful historic centre and a tourist beach where there is plenty to do. Cruises, beaches, majestic cliffs, water sports, diving, there is something for everyone. To discover all the must-see places for the whole family, consult our complete Algarve practical guide.

Protector of the environment and marine life, the resort is committed to the conservation of the surroundings and sustainable development.

While children are having a great time, Mom and Dad agree on the next activity to be tested. Fortunately, they have a lot of choices!

A sanctuary of relaxation and tranquillity, VILA VITA Spa by Sisley presents a menu of beauty and therapeutic treatments in collaboration with the famous French brand Sisley Paris. Away from the daily stress, take care of your pretty face before giving yourself a benevolent pedicure to repair your tired little feet that trot all day long.

MY unforgettable stay at Vila Vita

Jérôme, father of Achille, 5 years old, from Brussels

 

 

Last August I visited this legendary hotel for you. Here are my impressions.

 

A JEWEL NESTLED ON A CLIFF

At Little Guest, we visit each and every establishment in our collection before recommending them to travelling families which use our services to book their family holiday.

It was in this context that I was lucky enough to stay at the Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa.

Inaugurated in 1992, the hotel quickly established itself as THE most beautiful hotel in the Algarve. Owned by a wealthy German family, the hotel is the object of special attention from the members of this family who personally take care of the decoration and many other aspects. This is why Vila Vita feels like home.

The attention paid to the decoration and to the smallest details is truly impressive. Works of art are combined with exceptional materials such as linen, silk, marble, natural stone and wood. The whole forms a refined but not pretentious universe. The restaurant with its self-service buffet is a good example of this atmosphere. I visit a lot of hotels, but I have never seen such a refined buffet restaurant, far from the image one usually gets of this type of place.

The resort is arranged around a large park with lush vegetation. It is good to stroll around this domain which includes a 9-hole golf course and a sublime park with a fountain under which swans and ducks refresh themselves.

“Inaugurated in 1992, the hotel quickly established itself as the most beautiful hotel in the Algarve.”

The endpoint of the resort offers a breathtaking view of the ocean and the surrounding ochre cliffs. This is where an infinity pool is located, offering one of the most instagrammable spots in the area. In order for children to avoid putting themselves in danger by walking on the edge of this pool, access is reserved for adults only. But rest assured, just a stone’s throw away, the hotel has installed a superb paddling pool surrounded by beautiful swings!

This part of the hotel offers direct access to a pretty little cove protected from the wind. You will have to go down a wooden staircase to get to this beach. For families with strollers or grandparents, the hotel also put in place a free shuttle to another beach where there is no need to go down the stairs. On this beach you will find one of the hotel’s restaurants, allowing you to spend the whole day at the beach, having lunch in front of the waves at lunchtime.

 

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICES

The hotel offers services worthy of a palace in a relaxed atmosphere. The catering is varied, refined and very affordable. At lunchtime, for example, you can expect to pay between €10 and €15 for a starter and between €20 and €25 for a main course.

The minibar in my room was in the image of this establishment which advocates home-made and local products. The traditional M&M’s and Pringle’s were replaced by a chocolate bar prepared by the Pastry Chef, home-made biscuits and chips.

On arrival at my room, I was treated to a bottle of wine straight from a vineyard owned by the owners of the hotel. This local wine is also served in the different restaurants of the resort.

My room had a magnificent view on the sea. The bedding was very comfortable. I recommend families to stay in the two-bedroom Duplex Suites, some of which have an incredible rooftop where you can relax.

“The hotel offers services worthy of a palace in a relaxed atmosphere.”

I, of course, visited the hotel’s kids-club and crèche. It is a very beautiful place with an indoor part and a large outdoor playground, protected from the sun by the shade of the maritime pines. The staff is very friendly and the activities are varied. I appreciated the impeccable cleanliness of the place and the impressive size of this area dedicated to children.

Shopping enthusiasts will appreciate the small village made of wooden huts with straw roofs. These small shops offer original local creations and international brands such as Etro or Villebrequin. The children’s shop is very well stocked.

During my stay, I met a lot of children. Vila Vita is indeed a family-run hotel and is designed above all to welcome families.

If you like peace and quiet, refinement, way of life, decoration and gastronomy, the Vila Vita is made for you. Believe me, you will spend an unforgettable holiday here.

 

Have a great holiday!

Jérôme
