Bringing together contemporary style, incredible service, and staggering vistas, the resort promises a five-star getaway that has been elevated above the ordinary. 

In this blog, we’ll give you the grand tour before plotting out all reasons why this stunning resort should definitely host your next European adventure. 

Introducing Domes Lake Algarve

This beautiful resort is part of the wider Domes Resorts family. The group boasts a reputation for crafting unforgettable, high-end escapes throughout Europe. So, you know this place is going to be pretty special. 

But before we start dissecting all the reasons to stay here, why don’t we give you a brief resort overview?

Made up of 192 rooms and boasting 4 restaurants and 2 bars, as well as a spa, fitness centre and a selection of freshwater pools. Domes Lakes Algarve has everything you could possibly want from an elevated Portuguese escape. 

9 Reasons to Book Your Stay

  1. It’s more than just a pretty location
  2. Vibrant Vilamoura
  3. Modern chic accommodation
  4. Award-winning restaurants
  5. Choice of water sports
  6. Golfing galore
  7. Sink into the spa
  8. Kids are welcome
  9. Upgrade for less

1. All about location

Domes Lake Algarve benefits from a unique location. When you think about this particular area of Portugal, your brain probably conjures images of vast sandy beaches.

However, the resort twists the narrative by finding itself dotted on the banks of a vast private lake. While you can still access the nearby coastline, here you can feel as though you have this stunning location all to yourself

In addition, you won’t have to worry about huge travel times. The short-haul flight of only around 3 hours is then backed up by a simple 30-minute transfer from Faro International Airport. So you’ll be lounging by the lake in no time.

2. Visiting Vilamoura

Adding to that point about the location. You’re also in the perfect position to explore the beautiful, cosmopolitan town of Vilamoura and its stunning marina. 

There’s a selection of things to do in Vilamoura adding to the popularity of the town. Its history as a Roman fishing centre is worn around the area. Historical sites like Loulé Castle, Cerro de Vila, and Castelo de Paderne are perfect examples. 

However, if you prefer your entertainment more present day, there are water parks, casinos, and a vibrant nightlife scene to help fill your itinerary.

8. Bring the family

All this peace, tranquillity and high-end services aren’t out of reach of families either. Thanks to added amenities like the Kiepos kid’s club, Babysitting services, and a fun playground. But, in true Domes style, these aren’t just ordinary junior facilities. 

Far from being full of lights, colour, and overwhelming stimulus. The kids club offers your little ones the chance to learn, develop and create special memories. 

Plus, the experienced staff in the club deliver fun itineraries that follow learning models like Montessori and Reggio. In fact, the multilingual programmes meet UK Ofsted childcare standards
