Looking for a well-deserved pampering break? Let Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort spoil you…

Nestled amongst orange groves and undulating wetlands on Portugal’s picturesque Algarve coast lies the majestic Anantara Vilamoura.

Setting the tone for your stay are glimpses of the ocean and the stunning views of the Arnold Palmer designed Oceânico Golf Course as you arrive onto the premises of the hotel.

As soon as you drop your bags off in your room, you’ll want to venture outdoors again and explore the endless grounds. Before you rush out though, take in the soft and comfortable touches of woods and fibres that make up your cosy room. Snuggle into a soft armchair on your balcony and drink up views of picturesque gardens, swimming pools and lush green fairways for days.

If you are one of those who prefers to relax and take advantage of the environment, the staff are only too happy to help with suggestions, which can include a visit to the aqua park, riding horses or just lounging by the pool. If you are a golf buff or even have the slightest interest in learning the art of the swing, you are absolutely at the right place. The hotel boasts a golf guru who will design perfectly tailored packages for you, whatever your handicap. Swing away, we say.

Culinary excellence is at the heart of Portuguese culture. The Victoria restaurant carries on the legacy as a warm meeting place, gathering cultures and tastes in one place for refined à la carte or lavish buffet-style dining. If that wasn’t enough, there are also live food stations drawing attention to recipes from in-house chefs, served alongside the bold flavours of Thai cuisine. Your palate is sure to thank you.

Getting away from it all is not complete without some indulgent pampering at the Anantara Spa. As experienced therapists work on you with their century old lotions and potions, feel the stresses of the world leave you. Continue the wellness healing with yoga and Tai Chi sessions.

The prize: • Three-night stay for two  in double deluxe room • Breakfast and dinner • Tuk tuk ride • Anantara signature massage • One excursion to local market
