Martinhal: The Jewel in the Algarve’s Crown

By Design Holidays | November 11, 2013 | Posted in: Holidays in Martinhal Resort

The Martinhal Beach Resort & Martinhal Hotel, has now become one of the best luxury family holiday resorts in Europe. The Martinhal Beach Resort officially only opened last year, on the south-westerly tip of the Algarve in Portugal. Now only does Martinhal have dazzling beach but this fabulous new holiday resort and boutique hotel has become a wonderful addition to the Algarve.

The Martinhal is seriously not like any other hotel in the Algarve. It is actually located within the protected Costa Vicentina national park on the cliffy western rather than flat southern coast of the Algarve near the historic fishing port of Sagres. Sagres has always been a favourite location for nature lovers, surfers and scuba divers who all come for the areas unspoiled environment. The area in which Martinhal is situated is not heavily built-up, overdeveloped and has beaches which are over populated. In fact far from it, it unique location means the surrounding area is unspoilt, wild and rugged.

The Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel is the first 5 star luxury resort to the area which now means that eco-conscious couples and families with children of all ages can relax in pure luxury with one of the Algarve’s most beautiful beaches literally on their doorstep. The Martinhal provides a truly magical combination of luxury and natural beauty. The result is a peaceful setting offering everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

The resort is set on a 25 hectare site and has been created by Roman and Chitra Stern in partnership with UK hoteliers, Nigel Chapman and Nicholas Dickinson. The Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel has just 38 exclusively luxury rooms, some in the main building, others in a cluster of private wood-clad blocks beside it, all with views of the sea. Surrounding the hotel are several villas for self-catering rentals, some with their own private pools, as part of the resort. There are also 3 excellent, super-stylish restaurants serving variations on Portuguese food, a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by teak decking and lime-green bean bags, and a small spa with sea-inspired treatments.

The excellent facilities are located all across the Martinhal resort and offer something for everyone – relaxing spa treatments, a varity of sports, childcare facilities for children from six months old, an area for older children, a gourmet food market for supplies for your villa and even ‘take away’ freshly prepared meals to enjoy in your house or villa.

The essence of the Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel is one of affordable, understated ‘barefoot luxury’ and genuine hospitality that will offer outstanding value for money and a stylish and contemporary alternative to the more traditional European beach resorts.

The resort is easily accessible via scheduled flights to either Faro or Lisbon. From these airports, guests can either hire a car or take a private transfer organised by the resort. The flying time to Faro from the UK is around 2 hours 40 minutes and the drive from Faro airport takes an hour or so. So you could be sitting in pure unspoiled luxurious surrounds in just under 4 hours.

If Portugal isn’t your thing then why not try La Manga, Forte Village SardiniaPine Cliffs or Abama Hotel Tenerife.
