Located amidst twenty nine acres of verdant gardens atop the Praia das Gaivotas cliff, this recently refurbished member of The Small Luxury Hotels of the World offers a stay of unparalleled peace and pampering. Guest rooms and suites - all with private terrace from which to absorb views over the Atlantic Ocean, pools or manicured gardens - echo the tranquil setting with cool, neutral furnishings. Outstanding dining encompasses two venues, with the B&G restaurant serving contemporary Portuguese cuisine or enjoy traditional churrasco meats at the Terrace Grill. The Tonic lounge bar with its ocean facing deck provides the perfect place to relax. The excellent spa and Thalassotherapy centre invite connoisseurs of cosseting to select from over fifty revitalising treatments. Leisure time may be spent at the tennis courts, at the secluded sandy beach or by one of the five swimming pools, four of which are seawater. The Koala Kids' Club will keep younger guests aged three to twelve years well entertained.
