Last weekend there was a party atmosphere on the cliff tops of southern Portugal, as the Sheraton Algarve, A Luxury Collection Hotel, celebrated the first week of reopening since phase one of its extensive renovation scheme was completed. Guests were invited to take part in a free activity programme and be the first to enjoy the brand new Pine Cliffs Goes Active, Health & Fitness Club, which opened its doors on Saturday.
At the Inspiring Travel Company, we love to see established luxury resorts like Sheraton Algarve continue to innovate and improve because it means they are committed to ongoing excellence; a value we share! With 50 fully renovated rooms this year and 78 entirely new Ocean Suites on their way for 2016, not to mention the fitness centre, refreshed reception area and a new restaurant, this particular transformation is one of the most ambitious and impressive we've seen for a while.
Great facilities and immaculate service mean the Sheraton Algarve has long been a desirable destination for a luxury Algarve holiday. The hotel is set within the Pine Cliffs Resort, which is dappled with pine trees and perched atop terracotta cliffs, with stunning views out towards the Atlantic Ocean. These choice additions, then, will only add further to the appeal of this iconic property.
The resort closed its doors last year in November and since then there have been non-stop work to make what is already one of the Algarve's best loved resorts even better. The new state of the art Health and Fitness Centre has undergone a complete remodelling. Appointed with simple elegance and filled with natural light, the facility boasts a gym, indoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath and Jacuzzi. So whether it's utter relaxation or a workout blitz you're after, the Sheraton Algarve will easily accommodate your needs.
For a stay this year, we highly recommend the meticulously renovated Premier Deluxe Rooms and Premier Suites, which have been elegantly appointed to create light-filled, luxurious spaces. Newly designed bathrooms have also been added, with contemporary finishes including a rainfall shower and separate bathtub. Both room types have the option of Atlantic views, though the Premier Suites, which are split over two levels, offer more space and some luxurious extras.
Whichever accommodation you choose this season, consider making a return trip in 2016, when the superlative Pine Cliffs Ocean Suites will be unveiled. Some 78 new suites, with options from studio to three bedrooms, will be appointed in the utmost style with a muted, modern finish. Floor-to-ceiling windows mean all bedrooms will be bathed in natural light and offer enviable Algarve views. These brand new suites will surely take luxury to the next level at Sheraton Algarve.
Arriving along with the new complex will be an inviting new Italian restaurant, adding yet another option to the already impressive array of dining experiences on offer, which range from al fresco Japanese to sensational fresh seafood. There are just so many reasons to make Sheraton Algarve your choice for a luxury Portugal holiday!
