Vila Joya beach
Vila Joya, Algarve, Portugal
Wonderful boutique gastronomic hideaway on quiet sandy beach
7 nights from £1,300pp sharing on bed and breakfast basis, including private airport transfers
Vila Joya is a boutique hotel located in a secluded area of the Algarve coast, surrounded by gorgeous gardens, and enjoying direct access to a picturesque sandy beach. Formerly a private summer residence, this boutique hideaway is now one of the most lovely privately-run hotels in the region. The property is characterised by its beautiful design and unique, untouched location.
There are just 13 spacious rooms and 9 suites at Vila Joya, all with direct sea views, a casual sense of home style with light, warm tones and natural materials like linen, fine wool, stone and wood. The region’s Moorish history is reflected in Portuguese craftsmanship: fireplaces, hand-painted azulejos, locally made terracotta tiles, dark brown Portuguese cork flooring, Tadelakt plaster and natural stone showers bear testament to the owner’s ties with the local region. Each room includes a terrace or balcony, some with direct access to the garden.
Activities & Experiences
Vila Joya has a heated swimming pool and a quiet beach with direct access from the hotel gardens. The 350m2 Spa has a second pool, an outdoor whirlpool, a sauna, steam bath, three treatment rooms (facials, manicures, pedicures, soothing massages and invigorating body treatments are all on offer), cosy relaxation rooms and a fitness area overlooking the sea.

There's a major focus on gastronomy at Vila Joya, offering Michelin-starred dining at the main restaurant for lunch and dinner. There is also a pool-side bar restaurant open for lunch and a small beach restaurant for lighter dining.
