An exclusive seaside hotel
The Bela Vista & Spa is a top-of-the-line five-star hotel in the Algarve region of Portugal, perched on a rocky outcrop above the famous « Praia da Rocha » beach.
This prestigious Relais & Châteaux hotel also boasts gourmet dining at its « Vista Restaurant, » a recurring Michelin star winner since 2017.
The hotel is located next to the lively town of Portimao, a hotspot for nightlife and shopping. The Portimao region abounds with cultural sites and golf courses…and Faro International Airport is just 90 minutes away from the hotel via the Faro highway (direct access).
The main building – the « Palaceto » – is a historic residence built at the beginning of the 20th century. This ancient mansion is an iconic site and a testimony to the history of this region in southern Portugal.
In 2011, the « Palaceto » was completely renovated and redesigned by a famous architect by the name of Graça Viterbo. The original structure – as well as the original Portuguese style « azulejo » paintings – are perfectly preserved and maintained. Today, the Bela Vista & Spa is beautifully designed with modernity and authenticity.
In addition to the « Palaceto, » two further buildings on the grounds, the « Casa Azul » and the « Casa Jardim, » allow the hotel to offer a total of 38 rooms.
