Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort Announces Renovations

Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort has announced a series of renovations to add suites, besides dedicated family and adult zones. The transformations are scheduled to be completed this May.

What's new? Two of the resort’s eight restaurants are now reserved exclusively for families. Additionally, family rooms at Anantara Vilamoura will offer a choice of interconnecting rooms or suites, with suites offering such amenities as mini bathrobes and slippers as well as children’s toiletries, a fully stocked snack station and bedtime stories. Youngsters will love their welcome swag bag filled with art and craft activities packs before waking up to fun-filled days at the indoor-outdoor Kids Club. Little ones can splash out in the infants pool. Teenagers are kept busy with a full roster, including horse riding, surfing, golf, tennis and football (soccer) academies. They can also kick back in the games room with ping pong, pool tables and video games.

Victoria Restaurant serves kid-friendly breakfast, where children can return sans parents for supervised lunch and dinner. Poolside snacks are served at Cascades Pool Bar; a kids-approved food truck serves waffles, ice cream and pancakes; and Sensai serves Asian flavors until 9 p.m. Mediterranean flavors abound at new Italian eatery, La Cucina, and a calendar of visiting chefs throughout the summer will crank up the flavor at foodie pop-ups across the resort’s restaurants.

Parents can liaise with the 24/7 Family Concierge to arrange formula on arrival, nannies, and request anything from diapers to car and table booster seats, strollers and kid-friendly food. The resort offers complimentary bicycles and hiking trails to explore the beauty of the Algarve and easy access to beaches and aqua parks nearby. Parents can enjoy one-on-one sessions with the resort’s golf expert on championship fairways or a romantic night out with “Dining by Design.”

In addition, 30 new Swim Up Family Rooms will offer direct access to a 98-foot-long pool, while, throughout summer, the resort will offer 20 adults-only Signature Suites, each with Golf or Pool View. The suites offer 860 square feet of living space with a range of perks including the brand’s signature butler service, complimentary mini bar, airport transfers and VIP spaces. 

Suite guests have a choice between two adult retreats where dedicated butlers are on hand to shuck oysters, refill champagne flutes, offer complimentary refreshments, sunscreen refills and offer sunglass cleaning services at either the private cabanas of Infindo lounge or at the heated adults-only Palms Pool. Daybeds are reserved at Purobeach Vilamoura, the beach club in the Vilamoura Marina. The new Botanic bar serves artisan gin cocktails against an Instagrammable verdant backdrop, laidback poolside bites are served at the chic Palms Pool Bar, and the Anantara Lounge & Bar serves champagne and afternoon teas. Ria serves locally sourced seafood, paired with Portuguese wines.

In addition to luxury amenities and a pillow menu, all suite bookings include dedicated butler services and a bespoke activities program tailored to guests’ needs by the resort’s “Journeys Expert.” Nearby, guests can explore wineries and Roman ruins, go dolphin-watching or hit the greens at Victoria Golf Course where the Portugal Masters are held every year.
