Hotel Review

For families or friends seeking luxury within a private setting, the Vila Vita Collection of villas should be explored. 21st century design and comfort runs throughout these properties which come with daily maid service but with add-ons of a private chef to cook dinners, a private butler to serve them and the Vila Vita yacht to cruise along the coast, making them stand out from the crowd. There are a cluster of villas in Salema, one of the Algarve’s most authentic seaside towns, which range from contemporary 6 bedroom penthouse, Villa Mar Azul (which hangs, a lick of a pool included, over the long, golden beach below) to two bedroomed Residence Estrela do Mar which is made up from two old fisherman’s houses right on the beach, with sea views to wake up to. Out on a limb is Villa Hibiscus, the latest addition to the portfolio, which boasts five bedrooms and six bathrooms and lies on Galé Beach, an easy ten minute drive away from all the facilities of Vila Vita Parc itself. All different, all dazzling and definitely desirable.

Salema beach is a destination in itself, for it offers visitors an Algarve of yesteryear, with fishermen still sitting mending their nets on the beach and the local catch coming in on the coloured wooden boats. Explorers can search for the footprints of dinosaurs captured in the limestone rocks that border the beach, a three-toed (tridactyl) with no claws suggesting it was – way ahead of time- a vegetarian.

Great for families and groups of friends who like villa holidays but without the shopping and the cooking and the cleaning, making it actually just like home.

See What They Say

Why do people love staying in your hotel/villa? Staying in one of the VILA VITA Collection properties means to experience the authenticity of being in premium locations on the Algarve which have been well-preserved from mass tourism, whilst staying in luxury properties where they can feel home away from home.

What is there to do in the area or on site? Algarve is a region of Portugal with plenty of culture and heritage, as well as natural beauty with unspoilt beaches and an amazing coastline with incredible rock formations and caves. From the west to the east, there are several areas of interest to visit as well as local and authentic experiences where you can become one with the local culture. Some local experiences include: boat trips along the coast to visit the sea caves, fishing, water sports, golf, wine and olive oil tasting, clam-picking, basket weaving, tile-painting, cataplana cooking classes, visiting the local markets, swimming with dolphins at Zoomarine, karting, jeep safaris, visiting the dinosaur footprints, etc.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
In our villas and residences, guests can experience the holiday feeling of being at home and at their own pace. This means that most of our villas do not include breakfast with the exception of Villa Hibiscus Beach House which does include a continental breakfast service set up daily. However, guests can choose the level of service they wish to have at the villa, from a Private Butler to Private Chef & Catering Services, where they can choose menus created by the creative top Executive Chefs at VILA VITA Parc, to bartending services or private parties.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally? There are plenty of places to eat in each of the locations where we have properties. From local traditional restaurants, such as the local delicacy “chicken piri-piri” at Ramires in Guia or the traditional fish and seafood restaurant, A Boia in Salema, to more refined dining options, including with Michelin stars, such as Ocean Restaurant at VILA VITA Parc or Vila Joya in Galé.

Which is your most popular room, and why? Villa Hibiscus Beach House is the most popular property located in Galé. Filled with one-of-a-kind items sourced from around the globe — think batik textiles, hand-carved buddhas and artisan-made furnishings — this boho-chic hideaway embodies the term relaxed luxury. Just a few metres from the ocean, the garden gate of the villa opens directly onto Praia de Galé beach, one of the longest and loveliest stretches of sand in the Algarve. This makes Villa Hibiscus a rare find in Portugal, where most beachside properties are kept in private hands.

Beyond the beach, hidden from the prying eyes of passers-by, is the exquisite swimming pool, terrace and rambling landscaped gardens, where shady nooks provide sociable spaces for al fresco dining and sundowners.

Inside the whitewashed villa are four beach-themed bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom; a kitchen equipped with every imaginable amenity; and a smaller bedroom, ideal for young children or a live-in housekeeper who can deal with guests’ day-to-day requirements.

What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms? All properties are prepared with cots and high chairs and most rooms in each property can accommodate one cot or extra bed.

What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers? The VILA VITA Collection comprises luxury villas and beachfront residences in the Algarve, Portugal. Beautifully imagined and lovingly decorated, the exclusive properties in our portfolio enjoy enviable settings in beachside villages where traditional Algarvean lifestyles persist and raw, unspoilt nature survives. Each villa is handpicked and managed by VILA VITA Parc, ensuring the highest level of comfort, style and service.
