Vila Joya is one of our favourite boutique hotels for a reason; it offers a special and unforgettable experience. Its exclusive and beautiful surroundings are combined with one of the three 2-Michelin Star restaurants in Portugal, to create a space of relaxation, elegance and luxury.
This Chic Retreat welcomes families, offering babysitters so you can have some peace and quiet.

Tennis lovers won't be disappointed either as Vila Joya has its own tennis court on site, and the heated swimming pool is perfect for dipping your toes into. After all that excerise, a bit of pampering is called for in the holistic spa, which provides a range of Asian-Oriental treatments for the body and soul. The sauna and Turkish bath are also great places to unwind and relax.
To top it all off, the stunning slate state-of-the-art wine cellar houses over 7000 bottles of wine. In fact, it is possibly the most extravagant wine tasting room in Europe, and certainly the one with the best sea views.

The markets of the Algarve are key to the restaurant's ingredients, sourcing fresh produce of the finest quality.
