Discover what relaxation truly means on the southern Portuguese coast with a stay at W Algarve. Just outside the city of Albufeira and a short walk from numerous beaches, the hotel is ideally located for leisure. Inside, urban living meets coastal chill, with a laid-back yet playful energy throughout.
The west-facing 134 guest rooms and suites and 83 residences showcase a mix of modern design and local influences. Balconies offer wonderful ocean views and some rooms also have garden access. The hotel is set within lush grounds, with tree-studded land leading down to the shoreline.
W Algarve has three à la carte restaurants where Portuguese, Italian, Mediterranean, and international cuisines are on offer. A buffet breakfast is available daily. There are also two outdoor swimming pools, a rooftop bar with sweeping coastal views, and a poolside bar.
Things to do at W Algarve
Treat yourself to a pamper session in the AWAY® Spa with its six treatment rooms, plunge pool and range of beauty services. Other facilities at the hotel include a gym, fitness centre, sauna, and steam room.
You're also spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches. Within a 15-minute walk is small, sheltered Praia da Coelha with its golden sand lapped by clear, calm waters. Also easy to reach are spots such as Praia do Castelo, Praia de Manuel Lourenço and Praia dos Cavaleiros.
Albufeira is only a 10-minute drive away, and like W Algarve itself, it has two distinct personalities. The charming old town is all pavement cafes and boutiques, while the modern resort area boasts a lively strip that's full of bars and clubs.
Other nearby sites and attractions include the seaside Benagil Caves with its unique 'skylight', and The Seven Hanging Valleys Trail. Faro International Airport is just a 40-minute drive from W Algarve, making it a popular holiday destination for easy escapism and fun.
