Hotel description

The only thing at the Bela Vista Hotel & Spa which is perhaps not completely unique is its name. Everything else you’ll have never experienced before, and certainly not all together in one place: A proud historic palace by the sea with a panoramic swimming pool, gourmet Portuguese cuisine, a L’Occitane Spa and unique Art Deco decor!
The Bela Vista Hotel & Spa
To add real style to a vacation to the Algarve, there’s no better place to stay than the Bela Vista in Portimao. You almost want to walk all the way around this impressive beach hotel before you step inside. Be patient, savor the atmosphere and admire the impressive building! On one side, this historic property dating back to the 19th century is edged by a wide sandy beach (Praia da Rocha). The views are simply heart-stopping. Inside, another surprise awaits: an attractive design that mixes glamorous Art Deco decor with a sunny sea side flair. Fantastic!
Rooms and relaxation
The modern hotel facilities have just as much class as the old building itself. In the spa area guests are pampered from head to toe with exclusive treatments and products by L’Occitane. Meanwhile the smart hotel restaurant serves contemporary Portuguese gourmet cuisine. Outside you’ll find a spacious pool deck with good-quality sun loungers and stylish Bali beds facing the beach. The rooms and suites are either housed in the main building itself, or in the modern extension. They all offer a remarkably beautiful interior design and state-of-the-art room amenities.
