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. The Domes Lake Residences provide spacious accommodation and self-catering facilities ideal for families.

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 20 miles away; join the resort’s guided tour to make the most of your experience. Faro Airport is just 15 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 gardens, connecting its different areas. Tropical One Bedroom Residence, Sapphire One- and Two-bedroom Residences, and the Two Bedroom Residence Inland View accommodation are come furnished in a soothing palette of beige and soft light blue, complete with a fully equipped kitchen, an inviting dining area and living room.
