“This chic beachfront hotel overlooks the dramatic Atlantic coast. Bright rooms are dressed in earthy tones with natural accents; the best have a balcony with sea views. The hotel boasts a newly renovated pool, spa and restaurant, plus a fun children's play area. A fresh look for this seaside hotel.”

Hotel Review

“Originally built in the 1960s as a hip hideout for surfers, Memmo Baleeira was first refurbished in 2010 as a minimalist seaside haven. This year the hoteliers have unveiled a further facelift, bringing natural elements into the design concept with a palette of sandy colours, clusters of foliage and fresh, signature design pieces.

The inspiration from nature threads through the hotel's new look; the ocean takes centre stage in the first floor Fornaria Memmo restaurant, with spectacular views across the coast from the restaurant's expansive windows. The rattan sofas and designer ceramics combine to create a sense of barefoot luxury, while the menu focuses on fresh, simple seafood dishes.

The revamped pool area now boasts a pretty poolside bar, decking and lounge chairs. The hotel's original surf-loving clientele will be particularly pleased with the addition of a surfboard store and rental; the creation of a bike station broadens the appeal to cycling enthusiasts. Meanwhile, the hotel now features a climbing wall and play area for children, which parents will love.

In the newly enhanced spa or 'wellness area', guests can enjoy use of an indoor pool, sauna and Turkish bath. There also a spacious gym for active holidaymakers. This ambitious renovation clearly shows a hotel that refuses to be content with being 'good enough'; with first-class facilities catering to all types of visitors, these hoteliers have certainly raised the bar. ”

See What They Say

“Located in Costa Vicentina Natural Park at Europe's southwesternmost point, Portugal's Sagres peninsula boasts both a rich history and stunning natural beauty. Amid this wild and pure landscape lies the Memmo Baleeira. The brainchild of Portuguese hotelier and surfer Rodrigo Machaz has 144 rooms, each with views over either leafy gardens or glittering Atlantic waters. The hotel's minimal and stripped-back aesthetic adapts to the natural landscape. Rooms are furnished simply and elegantly in a monochrome palette. Decorative details are avoided and instead, the blues from the ocean seep in through the panoramic windows to colour the room. With a restaurant serving local produce, a bar, a café, and swimming pool set against the backdrop of Martinhal Bay, guests will have everything they need. But Machaz encourages visitors to mix with the locals, taste the flavours of the region, and make the most of the surrounding nature.”
