Quinta do Lago, Portugal

Conrad Algarve

Portuguese Playland

What it is

A 154-room modernist golf resort slung between the Atlantic Ocean and Ria Formosa National Park.

What it isn't

Just about golf. Activities on offer here include an over-the-top spa, half-Olympic outdoor infinity pool (one of three pools on-site), tennis court, and a beach club a five minute chauffeured drive away.

What we think

If the designers behind this blissful property were trying to echo the regions rumored 300 days of sun a year, they succeeded. Rooms are done in calming neutrals, yet opulent, thanks to unexpected perks (pillow menus, rain showers, and private balconies behind those blackout curtains). We have a feeling you won’t linger long in your room, though, no matter how lovely it is, because the five restaurants on the premises are worthy of a dinner crawl. Among them? Michelin-starred restaurant Gusto by Heinz Beck, Dado (where you’ll eat in a private cabana) and Louro, where old-world Portuguese fare is the order of the day. Arrive hungry.

You're here because

Children can get short shrift in many European resorts, but not here. The second your wee one checks in, they’ll be handed the keys to Little C Palace: a kids club where pasta-making classes and puppet shows will have them asking “How long can we staaay?”

The Moment

Having a gym is to be expected in this wellness-focused age. But having a gym where guest classes on offer include everything from Zumba to aqua fitness? After this morning’s pilates session and jaunts between the spa’s ice fountain and sauna, you may just leave in better shape than when you arrived.

Location

Quinta do Lago, a 2,000-acre reprieve in Ria Formosa Natural Park in Portugal’s Vacationland, The Algarve. Sounds world’s away, but isn’t: the property is a 20 minute drive from Faro Airport.

Birdwatching - Ria Formosa Natural Park is one of Europe’s best birdwatching locations. Commencing at low tide on a traditional Portuguese boat known as a saveiro, you will be able to observe birds up close. Exploring one of Europe’s most important wetlands for aquatic birds with the help of your tour guide, you will have the opportunity to see such beautiful bird species as White Storks, Little Egrets and Spoonbills. Other great options include Sunday brunches and a clam picking experience.
