In 2023, the Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort underwent a major refurbishment, introducing 30 swim-up rooms and new restaurants, and was subsequently nominated at this year’s World Travel Awards. The awards named the Algarve Europe’s Leading Beach Destination, and Expedia ranked it second in its top 10 European destinations. With 125 miles of coastline, pleasant year- round temperatures and exceptional local produce, it’s easy to see why. The Anantara is an ideal base to explore the upmarket Vilamoura resort town. Located opposite the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, which hosts the Portugal Masters, the 260-room hotel accommodates family and adults-only stays with two pools, a spa, excellent eateries and many extracurricular activities.
