Overview

Domes Lake Algarve 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 300 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 12 miles away.

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. Island, 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. Staying here includes the half board package and grants access to the Haute Living Lounge, a comfy space with tablets and magazines, which serves hot and cold snacks, teas and coffees, wines, beers and juices throughout the day. Stop by in the evenings for branded spirits.

The concierge team are also on hand to assist with booking tee times, local restaurant reservations and nearby island excursions.
