W Hotels Makes Portuguese Debut with New W Algarve
W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 hotel brands, today announced the opening of W Algarve. Perched atop Southern Portugal’s iconic cliffs, the latest hotel to join the brand’s family of W Escapes brings a vibrant energy to the coastal town. This is one of the 30 luxury hotels that Marriott plans to open this year.
W Algarve welcomes visitors with 134 west-facing guest rooms and suites, alongside 83 W-branded Residences, which incorporate natural hues and tactile finishes. Guests can discover large, private balconies with stunning ocean views and duplex-style layouts, and unearth the local culture through curated artwork, custom-made furnishings, and Portuguese-influenced such as bedside lanterns, dramatic headboards, and authentic Algarve tiles. Premium rooms include 10 aptly named WOW Suites, all featuring a private rooftop terrace, and the ultimate seaside retreat, the E WOW Suite.
Spanning 2,100 square-feet, W redefines the classic presidential suite with its signature E WOW Suite. The sanctuary offers two floors of breezy, oceanside living space with a vibrant, clever design reflective of the surrounding villages and scenic landscape. The spacious room features an ultramodern Bang & Olufsen® sound system and a panoramic rooftop terrace where lush gardens accent head-turning coastal views, a zero-edge lap pool, DJ mixing booth, and dining space.
W Residences Algarve deliver the same best-in-class amenities via one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units that highlight the same clean design, mirroring the shapes, colors and textures of the beachside town.
Bars and Restaurants
The new hotel is also a new destination for tastemakers. Market Kitchen presents local cuisine reimagined to create modern interpretations of globally inspired classics, fresh from the land and sea. Cabanas await at WET Deck with a double-level infinity pool perfect for soaking up sun, sounds and summer cocktails, while SIP @ WET serves nutritious dishes and cooling quick bites.
Sitting atop the hotel with a spectacular terrace, Paper Moon offers panoramic views of the grounds, Atlantic Ocean, and beyond. The Mediterranean sister to the original Milanese restaurant – Paper Moon Giardino – serves award-winning, authentic Italian cuisine. Next door, Sea Sky is the perfect place to sip and mingle with a pre- or post-dinner cocktail, taking in the golden bay of Armação de Pera below, where rugged cliffs meet the ocean’s horizon. Meanwhile, W Lounge is the perfect place to start or end the night, with fresh petiscos and an eclectic drink menu ranging from single-origin Portuguese coffee to libations artfully crafted using wines from Portugal’s leading female winemakers.
Designed to be the ideal combination of soothing and revitalizing, AWAY® Spa features six treatment rooms including one couple’s room, a hair salon, mani-pedi bar, where travelers can find balance in facial LED mask treatments and pre-dinner touch-ups at the Express Booths. The spa also incorporates a wet area with sauna, steam room, whirlpool and a tented outdoor relaxation lounge overlooking the pristine property gardens. Retreat to the socially charged Beauty Bar with a cocktail in hand before test-driving bespoke jet-set treatments featuring Comfort Zone skincare.
High-intensity workouts and boot camps offered at FIT embody the W brand’s social and energetic take on wellness. Located on the 2nd floor, FIT boasts 1,440 square-feet of indoor space and more than 3,445 square-feet of outdoor space, fully equipped with the latest TechnoGym® equipment and an Olympic Power Rack for every type of fitness-forward traveller. Sunrise yoga or a dip at the WET Deck means that there is every opportunity to refuel and leave W Algarve balanced and glowing.
