GENERAL IMPRESSION OF MARTINHAL FAMILY RESORT
Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel is the finest resort in Sagres, and amongst the best family beach resorts in Europe. This hotel is a family-focused, glass-enhanced hideaway with a beach and a national park for neighbours, an indulgent spa, and the concept of barefoot luxury at its heart.
Positioned within a protected natural park near the historic fishing port of Sagres, on Portugal’s unspoilt western Algarve coast, Martinhal is where luxury meets nature. Martinhal welcomes families and couples, and the greeting is warm, open and generous. Guests feel at home and it’s memorable. This is where life-long friendships will blossom, and where lasting impressions will be made.
Stylish, contemporary architecture complements the organic personality of the resort, which has been shaped to blend effortlessly into the indigenous landscape. This is function and form at its best. This is sustainability. And Martinhal is more. For conferences, weddings and celebrations, Europe’s finest luxury resort sets the scene.
ACCOMMODATION AT MARTINHAL
Hotel Martinhal - A stay at Hotel Martinhal is an invitation to discover Portugal’s unspoilt western Algarve.
Carefully positioned within the grounds of Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel, this luxury beachfront hotel – the first five-star property in the Sagres region – sits comfortably between the land and the sea, with a protected natural park as its neighbour.
The architecture combines a natural simplicity with contemporary style to create a building that appears organic, as if born to nature. The 37 rooms, including two duplex Beach Suites, all have private balconies or terraces that afford impressive ocean views.
The hotel’s O Terraço restaurant serves a full buffet breakfast and offers a tempting dinner menu based on Portuguese and seasonal produce, prepared with a modern flourish. Hotel guests have full access to all the other resort facilities.
Children and babies are completely welcome at Hotel Martinhal and at O Terraço restaurant as well.
Village Houses - The Village Houses are set in distinct locations around the Village Square.
The Martinhal village comprises 55 two and three bedroom Ocean Houses that are perched on the highest point of the resort with breathtaking views over the sea. In addition, 28 very spacious two and three bedroom Bay Houses enjoy a quiet location on the eastern border of the resort, overlooking a wooded valley, with uninterrupted views of the national park to the east and the ocean to the south. In the heart of the resort the Garden Houses are arranged around a natural garden, with a freeform ‘Oasis’ pool; 10 individual Pinewood Houses set apart in their own ‘close’ each with their own private swimming pool.
Vilas Mimosa - The 23 luxury townhouses located on the north-west side of Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel are known as the Vilas Mimosa. All are independently owned and feature 2 or 3 large bedrooms and a parking space in front of the house.
Their position affords impressive views across the resort, the Sagres peninsula and the natural park. Cosmopolitan in character, yet maintaining an important sense of tradition, the townhouses have been designed upside down: bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on the ground floor while a large open plan lounge and state-of-the-art kitchen occupy the second level.
The interior speaks in a contemporary manner but the tone is measured. Comfort and quality are the central themes. Furnishings are stylish but functional. All townhouses have central heating, air-conditioning, satellite TV and a DVD player.
Guests who book one of the Vilas Mimosa houses have full access to all resort facilities, leisure activities, kids clubs, spa, wellness, shopping areas, and events and entertainment. In addition, guests of the Vilas Mimosa townhouses have the use of an exclusive heated condominium swimming pool and baby pool, both enclosed in a beautiful private garden during the summer months.
