Description & Location

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

Facilities and Activities

Main swimming pool
Separate adults only pool and chill out area
Kids pool
Several restaurant options reflecting the cuisine of Portugal

Cooking classes
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.

The present traffic like system for travel introduced by the UK Government was maybe well-intentioned but has probably lead to even more confusion. So this is an attempt to clarify, in deliberately simplistic terms.
