A country that I yearn to return to very soon is beautiful Portugal, a country with such a rich and extensive history worth discovering. Here is a guide on where to stay in the goergous southernmost region of Algarve, known for its Mediterranean beaches and golf resorts. I can hear you asking, where did you stay?! Well, welcome to The Conrad Algarve. A luxurious modern 5 star hotel, perfect for instagram obsessed people like myself who love a good photo op worth sharing (photographer problems). Every inch of this stunning hotel fits its 5 star title and upon driving down the dreamy entrance path, you are quickly transported into a haven of elegance and comfort.
When visiting, I was lucky enough to be offered a stay in both the deluxe king room and the hotels roof garden suite, both of which were truly something special. The Deluxe King Room which goes for a more affordable rate, is perfect for anybody looking for an up to date chic room, full of plush amenities and a spacious layout. My favourite part of my stay here being the fact that my bathtub had a tv in the wall above it! I totally spent my first morning watching a true crime documentary in the tub and it was completely worth it.
Now if your really looking to go all out, allow me to take you on a tour of The Roof Garden Suite. Definitely something to write home about. Probably one of the most incredible suites I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in, the roof garden suite is ideal for a group of people who are going to Portugal with the intent to live like a celebrity. The entire suite screams luxury and its very hard to not want to pinch yourself at how beautiful every inch of this suite truly is. From its heated indoor pool, to its ridiculous outdoor garden, it won’t be long before you are feeling like royalty here. It’ll set you back quite a bit, but believe me, you won’t regret it.
Above photo from the living area when I visited in 2016, below is how it stands today, even more breathtaking and modern. Still unbelievably obsessed with the interior of this space.
But Shen, is there a spa? I need a spa! A 5 star hotel isn’t complete without one! Welcome to The Conrad Spa. Now if your in the mood for an extra touch of zen and tranquility, this spa offers an array of treatment packages, indoor and outdoor relaxation zones, infinity pools, inhalation therapies and more!
If this post wasn’t enough for you to get booking your next stay here, I don’t know what else will convince you. On a rating perspective, The Conrad Algarve gets a solid 9/10 for its clear attention to detail, excellent hospitality and beautiful design. If you do visit, tell them Shen sent you and I hope you have as much of an amazing stay here as I did. Thank you Conrad, you were a pleasure!
