Anantara Vilamoura is a perfect luxurious base for doing nothing, exploring The Algarve or just playing (a)round!
Anantara Vilamoura is a relatively new name on the Algarve luxury hotel scene. In a past life it was known as Tivoli Victoria. It is now a top class resort, after a total (and rather expensive) transformation.
Located adjacent to the prestigious Victoria Golf course – home to the Portuguese Masters tournament. 2 miles inland from the Vilamoura Marina and beach area (regular shuttle, 10 minutes)
Faro airport & town is 25 minutes drive.
Anantara Vilamoura has 280 rooms and suites, all spacious with contemporary design.
All have golf or garden views and most have a large balcony or patio.
You have a choice of:
Deluxe Rooms and Junior Suites, which have a separate living area. Followed by One Bedroom Suites, which both have a living and dining area. And Family rooms which are two interconnecting rooms
Main swimming pool
Separate adults only pool and chill out area
Several restaurant options reflecting the cuisine of Portugal
Shuttle to and from Vilamoura Marina where there is a sister hotel: The Tivoli
At the marina area, you have many more restaurant options and separate Anantara Puro Beach Club which is exclusive to hotel guests (journey time about 8 minutes). Normal opening months will be April to October depending on the weather
Kids Club with in and out facilities and seasonal Teens club
Fado singing some evenings pre-dinner
Anantara Vilamoura offers top quality accommodation, in a stylish clean-cut design.
For us, it makes a perfect base for exploring The Algarve. The hotel is open year round, with the emphasis in the autumn and winter months on golf, spa & cuisine. It is family friendly yet at the same time has adult only relaxing areas.
The Anantara Vilamoura has a number of private tours. All can be tailored to your personal requirements.
Car hire is not essential, but it will certainly add to the experience of the region. Within a short drive, you have several authentic market towns. Loulé is particularly attractive. Faro Old Town is worth exploring, with its history and upscale dining. You then have the Ria Formosa National Park and wetland.
DK from Chic particularly enjoyed the unique Deserta Island, where you can indulge in your Crusoe fantasies. The lively Vilamoura marina area offers restaurant and bar options (Regular shuttle).
If you want to play a-round, there is no better place, as you have so many top quality courses close by.
For those looking for twin centre ideas, Lisbon is 3 hours drive. Seville is even closer at just over 2 hours.

Holidays in Europe are fantastic. However, it is important to have your passport clearly stamped with your exit date.
I last visited Thailand in December 2021. At the time travel was limited and you had to take a test before and on arrival. This time it was much more open. I arrived in Phuket, showed my Thailand pass and vaccination certificates, and collected my case – all within 45 minutes.
Confidence to travel again has certainly returned as Covid cases around the world continue to drop. Virtually every country (or at least those Chic Locations feature) has relaxed its entry protocols and whilst there are still a few in-destination regulations these are...
Absence Makes the Heart Grow Even Fonder. David Revisits Thailand – Yet Again.I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to revisit Thailand in early December. The last time was in autumn 2019. I have missed it madly and badly. I first visited Thailand in 1976 – yes...
Even though the passport office say they can cope with demand at the moment, I have still been told to expect at least 4 /6 weeks for a new passport to arrive. As travel demand increases the longer it will take unless you want to pay extra for fast track…
The UK Government, both the Home office and the Foreign and Commonwealth office, have now approved travel to the Maldives. This is fantastic news and comes at exactly the right time for winter escapism.
Many islands in the Caribbean have been placed on the Green Watch list. This means the islands will have their vaccination success monitored by the UK Government on a weekly basis…
Although the Sandbox scheme has improved week on week since its introduction in early July, and most of the southern resorts have a high vaccination rate and low cases, the UK Government has chosen to look at the entire country and made it all on the UK Red traffic light NO GO area.
It is highly probably the resort island of Phuket will re-open to international travellers from the first week of July 2021. We have a few ideas…

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, some hotels may have changed their facilities. Standard descriptions like distance from airport or town remain consistent as does the overall resort style. However, the number of restaurants, swimming pools, if more than one, are by example flexible and can change depending on occupancy and circumstances. Spa facilities, in particular, may be changed depending on local and international suggestions.
If your holiday decision is based on any specific facility please let us know at the time of booking so we can ascertain availability from the hotel. Please note, such information may be accurate at the time given but could be subject to change. In these times it would be prudent to be open-minded and flexible on such matters.
