With over 300 days of sunshine per year, a Mediterranean diet focused on fresh seafood, the relaxing breeze of the Atlantic Ocean and a whole host of in-land activities ranging from golf to mountain biking, it’s no wonder the Algarve is renowned for its outside activities.
But now, the Algarve wants to take one step further and become a year-round wellness destination, not just providing activities and sports, but immersive retreats and world-class wellness centres, and at LUX MARE we share the same passion for bringing those health-focused services into a private villa setting.
We believe that luxury holidays provide the perfect opportunity to do more than relax in our ever-busy world, but to truly rejuvenate and return feeling refreshed, calm and genuinely pampered.
With the Global Wellness Institute predicting that wellness tourism trips to grow 8% annually by 2022, it seems that we are all very much in agreement.
At LUX MARE we aim to achieve this by offering a bespoke array of options to our luxury villa guests, allowing them to enjoy the private exclusivity of a luxury villa, but with the options and amenities of a five-star hotel.
While the traditional pampering options such as in-villa massages or beauty treatments are a staple on our concierges’ service list, we are proud to now arrange private trainers for our guests, yoga and pilates instructors to visit the villa, and a whole host of other bespoke solutions to improve their wellness holiday in the Algarve.
All of these luxury services can be arranged and booked as an additional service through our reservations team, or concierge service, with the required notice.
LUX MARE, with its wide-open rooms flooded with light, well-manicured gardens and breathtaking views of the ocean has also provided to be the perfect retreat destination, having hosted Yoga retreats in both Casa L and Casa M, where nature, health, wellness and relaxation combine.
In addition to these services, we have secured access to the 5* Cascade Gym for all of our guests, which is just minutes from the LUX MARE luxury villas in Lagos and also offers additional spa and health services.
Wellness is the word on everyone’s lips right now, well anyone who works in the Algarve tourism industry at least. So much so, at the recent Algarve Tourism Conference, a special dedication was placed to this vital topic.
The Algarve has long been distinguished for it’s 88 blue flag beaches and sunny summer days, but with a year-round warm climate, and a new focus on wellness experiences, it’s no surprise that more and more of our guests are visiting in the shoulder seasons, and even winter months.
With fantastic rates available on luxury accommodation in the Algarve during the off-season and this range of new services, perhaps a last-minute winter wellness escape is the gift you owe to yourself?
Contact our reservation team at LUX MARE to make a booking, and we’ll take care of the rest.
