Vila Vita Parc is a unique reference in terms of accommodation experiences in the Algarve, the sunniest region in Portugal. Unique, as it has always welcomed and respected the essence of the local culture and regional traditions, not forgetting the core business of luxury service and the promotion of sustainability, to preserve the wealth that surrounds it and to give its best to future generations. 

Widely considered to be one of Europe’s finest resorts, Vila Vita Parc is set in 54 acres of lush landscaped sub-tropical gardens overlooking the stunning Algarve coast and the Atlantic Ocean.  This unique resort has an extensive choice of leisure facilities and a variety of first-class culinary options, making it the perfect venue for any occasion. The chefs of the 12 seasonal restaurants delight all with the variety of creative Portuguese and international specialties, including the 2 Michelin-starred Ocean restaurant, and a visit to the spectacular vaulted wine cellar is the highlight for all wine connoisseurs. The Vila Vita Spa by Sisley Paris offers a variety of beauty treatments, massages, and mindfulness in a relaxing environment. The more active can enjoy 7 pools, one of them for adults only, fitness, tennis, golf and the beach or a leisurely trip along the coast on one of the resort’s private yachts.

At Vila Vita Parc, guests are nourished with the best things in life and the most unique experiences present you with an authentic, sustainable, and magnificent Algarve. The best of Portugal and the Algarve is celebrated here, immersing each guest in pampered, personalized pleasures, imbued with Portuguese culture and hospitality. We can organise authentic experiences for all tastes, from painting your own pottery or weaving a traditional basket with a local artisan, to tastings of medronho and chouriço or oysters and wine, from going to the market with the chef and cooking a traditional cataplana with fresh fish and seafood, to a visit of local producers of the best oranges in Silves, an excursion to Castro Marim to see the precious fleur de sel, or a private yacht tour along the superb coast to view the Benagil cave or Ponta da Piedade rock formations.  

The motto Passionate about Algarve is now expressed even more strongly, a daily assertion based on passion to obtain a service of excellence. Both in service and in love, a great passion is only preserved with attention to detail. 

Passionate about Algarve is Vila Vita Parc’s ultimate definition. At the core of this highly respected entity and leader in global luxury travel, quality and passion are wrapped in a passionate embrace to each guest, that draws from it the best that life, Portuguese culture, and luxury hospitality have to offer.
