Overview

Live your best life at W Algarve Hotel & Residences. Beachy vibes and cool design make this swanky hotel perfect for the young at heart and luxury hungry. With futuristic décor round every turn, spacious rooms and a stunning ocean-facing location, you’ll find all you need for a relaxing or active stay. Sunbathe with a cocktail by the pool on trendy loungers, let experts work their magic at Away Spa and frequent the local beaches – or perhaps a session of sunrise yoga could tempt you.

Set back from the beach and approximately five miles from Albufeira, W Algarve is perfect if you’re looking to escape from the city but still enjoy its perks. Old town Albufeira is home to pavement cafes by day and a lively club scene by night – though there’s plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Take your pick from a whole coastline of gorgeous beaches backed by archetypical Algarve cliffs, great for swimming, sunbathing or surfing. Castelo and Evaristo beaches are under a mile away and there’s a complimentary shuttle. Great golf courses are dotted around the Algarve, the nearest being Salgados which is less than two miles west . Faro Airport is 30 miles away. 

Rooms are spacious with generous balconies. They are packed to the brim with contemporary and playful design – there’s a chimney shaped minibar, a sardine pillow and backlit roofscape-style headboards stretch across the whole wall, all intended to mirror the local area. Bathrooms don azulejos patterned tiles and asymmetrical mirrors and are separated from the room by a decorative glass window – excellent for couples, not so private if you’re travelling with friends . Simply soak up the ocean views on your lounger clad balcony or get the luxury treatment with 24-hour room service and a nightly turndown.

For a home away from home feel, the residences are open-plan apartments equipped with a kitchen and living room. You’ll have access to all the hotel’s facilities plus a dedicated residence-only pool, set away from the hotel and a dedicated residential concierge team.
