Only 5 minutes away from the charmingly peaceful São Rafael beach near Albufeira in the south of Portugal, you will find the design hotel of the same name: the Sao Rafael Suites. If you’re looking for a secluded beach vacation while still enjoying the luxury of a 5 star hotel, the hotel Sao Rafael Suites is perfect for you. Here, the often forgotten simple things in life are of full importance - simple elegance and good taste being the basic principles of the luxury hotel with its rich offer of leisure activities and wellness treatments. It’s also ideal for families traveling with their children.
In the sparkling clean design hotel, guests can soak up the sun out on the sun deck while the kids play in the children’s pool. The Relax Center of the 5 star hotel has everything its name suggests, offering you a sauna, steam bath and massage treatments to city slickers and stressed out vacationers looking to wind down. From the huge windows of the mosaic tiled indoor swimming pool, where you can relax after an invigorating workout, you have a fabulous view of the three swimming pools of the design hotel and the large park area, where you can even play a round of golf.
The bright rooms and suites of the hotel Sao Rafael Suites are decorated in soft pastel colors, cleverly designed and open up to a breathtaking panorama view of the green Algarve region and the refreshing view of the Atlantic.
Three restaurants, including a tavern down on the beach, serve a large selection of international and Mediterranean dishes, as well as excellent select wines. In the Esplanade Restaurant, fresh dishes are served at the pool. Don’t pass this one up! In the morning, the design hotel Sao Rafael Suites serves an ample breakfast buffet. If you feel drawn into a more urban setting, a trip to the nearby town of Albufeira is well worth it. You can stop by to enjoy a movie at the movie theatre, go shopping or enjoy the lively nightlife. There are also boat rides available, starting from the local marina.
To make sure that your beach vacation in Alarve is a great experience for everyone, parents can bring their children (from 3 to 11 years old) to the Khama Kid’s Club, where they can have fun being entertained and playing games. This helps you turn your wellness vacation at the 5 star hotel into a fantastic experience for the entire family.
Along with having everything you need for an unforgettable golf vacation, there are a variety of other sport activities open to you from tennis, aerobics and water sports to horseback riding trips. In the evening you can take advantage of the room service, or relax with a refreshing drink in the bar. In the lobby of the Sao Rafael Suites, there is a computer with high-speed Internet access available for checking emails and planning your day. In addition, the hotel also provides a business center with conference rooms available.
