Destination wedding in Portugal: meet Anantara Vilamoura in the Algarve

I arrived Anantara Vilamoura!

If you read all my posts, you will find me crazy and repeating the content. But calm down, not quite. I actually posted here, when I did my destination wedding special in Portugal , a little about Anantara Vilamoura , which is in the Algarve. But it was very en passant , to register how much I loved it. And that is why today I will make a complete post, with all the details.

Do you know those good surprises life gives you? This is a case! What a nicer hotel, what a beautiful place (as a good carioca I am, I love a beach and therefore I love the Algarve). Making its debut in Europe, the Anantara hotels, Resorts & Spas group bought off the old Tivoli Vilamoura hotel and managed to make it even more amazing. 15 minutes from Faro airport, there are 280 drooling rooms , an incredible view and a beautiful philosophy: that of appreciation of the national. Staying here means taking a dip in Portuguese culture – from ceramics to wines. Oh, and I almost forgot: For golf fans, the hotel is the right stop. Neighbor to the famous Victoria golf course, where the award-winning Portugal Masters takes place annually.

The facade already impresses
And the lobby is fun, it has a very nice beach atmosphere
This is the golf area, which I commented to the sportsmen
Here, the adults-only pool
One more picture, because the view is beautiful
I loved this hotel!
This is the beach part

The service could not be different from other units of the hotel chain , which is not impeccable and I have known for a long time. And a nice thing is to see the joy and honor that everyone has in sharing with you the Portuguese history. There are few hotels I’ve been to that I see that the staff are not only trained, very polite and wearing the hotel flag shirt, they are in love with all that. And this is a case. Their concern to serve you, but also to show you how beautiful the local history is, and how it can transform your trip with beautiful and charming mentions of the past.

The terrace of the presidential suite! Look at this vvviissstaaaa!

Speaking of pre-wedding, I suggest the fun and delicious cooking class . For the post it is impossible not to think of a typical Portuguese lunch in Ria Formosa , the best restaurant in the house. Monkfish rice is to eat while praying!

For the wedding party, my suggestion is to have Bruno Viegas and Antonio Lopes, chef and sommelier, respectively, from the Emo restaurant . The menu, customized here for the couple, makes the trip even more special. And let’s agree, a good Portuguese party has to have a food from the gods!

The party can be like this, as the hotel as a backdrop…
… Or so, in one of the gardens, where the trees take over from the air. Beautiful is not it?

So, what did you think of the photos and everything I told? Did you like it? I hope so, because I want to go back soon. And I hope it is with any of you as a bride!
