Algarve resort starts a new trend; a luxury hotel for the whole family

Tom Unwin

Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel, in the Western Algarve, Portugal, is on an innovative new trail in hospitality: a seaside hotel designed especially for families, with 5-star luxury and services.

“The whole resort was envisioned as a luxurious child-friendly destination. Martinhal has all the luxury service and design elements, with special activities for families and kids – and by that we offer lots of things for kids to do that are seamless –and fun,” says Chitra Stern, owner and founder member of the resort.

Just a 2.5-hour drive south from Lisbon, Martinhal has a wide range of accommodation with views of the Atlantic Ocean and the nearby fishing town of Sagres. Families can choose from 37 spacious and designer rooms in the hotel - some with interconnecting rooms - or the 150 Village Houses and Villas, from 1 to 5 bedroom houses and with or without private pool. Other family friendly amenities included are maid service, iPod docks, satellite TV and video on demand, free Wi-Fi and access to all resort facilities and leisure activities. Parents can also pre-book a baby concierge service and find baby supplies at the resort’s convenience store.

All of the restaurants have a kids’ menu and a special area where children can play while parents enjoy their meals. At Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel, children of all ages are catered for differently.  The resort has different clubs and day care centers, and activities are also fine-tuned to make the most of the seasons and the children’s ages. Baby-sitting service is always available.

Families can also spend some time together at one of the three outdoor pools or the indoor one. And while the children enjoy the Kids Club, parents can pick from a range of activities: a game of tennis, a bike tour, surf lessons or golf. The Finisterra Spa offers spa treatments, massages and facials.

Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel opened in 2010 and has quickly established itself as THE leading luxury holiday destination for families. Located close to the historic town of Sagres, on the Western Algarve, Portugal, this region is a year-round resort area.  The 100-acre beachfront resort is the epitome of barefoot luxury for couples and families - with an elegant spa, extensive range of childcare and leisure facilities, sports clubs and several restaurants and bars to choose from. The resort is surrounded by the Costa Vicentina National Park and was recently awarded a “Europe’s Leading Villa Resort” and “Portugal’s Leading family Resort” at the World Travel Awards 2013.
