Tucked away in the scenic Salgados along the coast, VidaMar Algarve offers the chic and relaxing getaway in the Algarve which you’ve been searching for.
The style of the entire resort is minimalist, modern and sleek. The rooms across all categories at VidaMar Algarve are larger than what you’ll find at comparable properties in the area. There are only three room categories which go from Prestige to Superior to Club Rooms and Suites. Even the smallest Prestige rooms have space to walk around with a wide, functional layout that flows seamlessly from the entrance to the bath area to the bedroom.
The bathrooms are spacious by themselves, complete with separate sections for the toilet, shower and vanity, full-length wall mirror and a wide slat bench which comes extremely handy for holding all your beach things and toiletries. There’s generous closet space built into the walls of all the rooms. Plus, the modern conveniences like a Nespresso machine and complimentary mini bar stocked with refreshments in the Club Rooms and Suites.
The heart of the hotel consists of four swimming pools stretching from one end of the resort to the other, creating a sleek tranquil oasis. Groves of palm trees sway in the wind, where you can also find comfy daybeds scattered beneath the shade of the palms. From the main area of the resort, guests can walk through a gated pathway which opens directly to the low, rolling sand dunes and the sprawling stretch of Praia da Gale beyond. The quick and easy access to one of the area’s most popular beaches is extremely convenient and allows an effortless transition from the resort pool to the shore whenever you wish.
VidaMar Algarve has a fabulous adults-only area with a pool, which is essential for any resort. MarClub is the adults-only zone, complete with plush cabanas, bar, daybeds and a shimmering swimming pool overlooking the ocean that will truly make all your problems melt away. The entire area is secluded and surrounded by rows of palm trees that shield it from the rest of the resort, which really gives the spot a sense of tranquility and privacy. MarClub has its own exclusive bar menu of scrumptious and potent tiki cocktails—drinks that are meant to be consumed by adults only—plus a solid list of tasty snacks that are perfect for noshing next to the pool. Think shrimp quesadillas, battered shrimp and veggie burgers.
The restaurants at VidaMar Algarve are plentiful and easily accessible. Ocean Buffet is the all-day buffet option where you can enjoy a full spread of international cuisine while looking at the ocean. Sunset Restaurant & Bar is the fun, stylish daytime option next to the pool. At Sunset Restaurant you can enjoy upmarket seafood dishes like monkfish and shrimp skewers or the fish of the day while relaxing under swaying canopies and palms.
Primadonna is the property’s very own Italian restaurant. The pretty and intimate outdoor terrace is perfect for dates and special dinners. The restaurant serves pizzas straight from the wood-fire oven, plus appetizing pasta, risotto, salads and aperitivos.
Don’t you dare leave the resort without checking out Osmos Spa and Wellness Center. The spa is to die for with high-end facilities decked out in sleek, sexy tones of onyx, bronze and slate grey, which gives the entire spa a tranquil, futuristic vibe. Osmos Spa facilities include indoor pool with hydromassage, sequential jets, Turkish bath, sauna and gorgeous relaxation areas that feel like a cocoon. There’s also a fitness center which is well-equipped with high-end exercise machines and installations.
The resort has an excellent Concierge team which can arrange a wide array of exciting excursions and tours through the Algarve. The one we recommend is the Kayak and Coast Trip with Seacret Tours. The tour takes you from Albufeira Marina out to the coastline on a boat. Once on the water, guests are able to kayak in and out of the many rugged caves and private beaches along the surrounding coastline. A boat and kayak tour are both must-do’s when in the Algarve, and the concierge team can organize such excursions quickly and easily so that you don’t have to!
VidaMar Algarve is sleek while remaining unpretentious and accessible. There’s nothing more relaxing than lounging the days away under the palm groves and the Algarve sun at VidaMar Algarve. For a fabulous, rejuvenating stay in the Central Algarve, look no further than VidaMar Algarve at the Salgados for the beach getaway that you deserve!
