With a wide choice of golf courses, lifestyle amenities as well as blissful weather, it comes as no surprise that the Algarve sees many golf players return more than once. Some even wish to make the Portuguese region their regular golf getaway.
Located in a tranquil countryside setting, Ombria Resort is a mere 2km from one of the Algarve’s
largest nature reserves and 7km north of the market town of Loulé, with Faro airport and the beaches only a 25-minute drive away. The resort features the region’s most anticipated new 18-hole golf course which promises players of all levels a naturally exceptional experience.
As a sustainable resort, Ombria puts particular emphasis on its course’s eco features which resulted in it being awarded a GEO Foundation certification. This international benchmark for responsible golf courses is given to those that meet the highest standard of sustainability across six key areas – nature, water, energy, supply chain, pollution control and community.
Being a new lifestyle destination, community naturally plays a key role in Ombria Resort’s company ethos. Whilst the development contributes to support the existing nearby communities, it will further extend this by boasting several different types of residences and a 5-star hotel.
The Viceroy at Ombria Resort
Ombria Resort has partnered with American hotel group Viceroy Hotels & Resorts for its 5-star hotel. The American brands’ first hotel in southern Europe will offer 141 rooms, 6 restaurants, 5 heated pools, spa, gym, kids club, gourmet shop and many other facilities. The interior decor, designed by Wimberly Interiors, is in perfect harmony with the architectural project by award-winning Promontorio architects. The hotel is designed as a village, blending seamlessly with the natural landscape, drawing inspiration from the characteristics, forms, materials and atmosphere of the traditional Algarve architecture. Local materials are given preference and renewable energy sources such as geothermal and solar have been integrated as a genuine commitment to sustainability.
