Domes Lake Algarve, Autograph Collection is the luxury brand’s first venture outside of Greece, and it doesn’t disappoint. Along with the Domes’ signature focus on style and lifestyle, this resort offers a private saltwater lake – with a range of water sports to boot – and direct access to Falesia Beach. It also houses a kids’ club, a semi-outdoor spa and award-winning dining options.

The resort is sat on the southernmost tip of Portugal, in the Algarve’s trendy town of Vilamoura – home to plenty of fine dining restaurants, chic bars and a marina dotted with superyachts. From the resort, the ruggedly beautiful Falesia Beach is just 400 metres away and Vilamoura’s town centre is under a mile away. The protected wetlands of Ria Formosa Natural Park, home to a collection of rare birds, is 10 miles away; join the resort’s guided tour to make the most of your experience. Faro Airport is just 15 miles away.

Upon arrival, you'll receive a personal check-in over a local drink of your choice, plus a complimentary welcome amenity. This includes a selection of traditional products and one bottle of Domes local wine. Inspired by the island’s traditional architecture, whitewashed and cream buildings (some with terracotta roofs) comprise the resort. Wooden walkways wind through the resort gardens, connecting its different areas. Inland, Tropical and Sapphire Retreats feature cool tiled floors, weathered wood furniture and sliding doors to separate smart bathrooms. In addition to neutral colour schemes, Tropical Retreats feature minty green accent colours to reflect their garden views, while Sapphire Retreats mimic their lake views with blue furnishings. Emerald Retreats, Tropical and Sapphire Family Retreats, and Absolute Suites are all part of the Haute Living Selection. Alongside modern room amenities, a complimentary bottle of mineral water will be replenished daily in your room.
