Hotel details

The resort is situated in one of the most beautiful nature areas in the Algarve

Where you are going...
The resort is situated in one of the most beautiful nature areas in the Algarve: the Monchique mountain area, also known as the ‘garden of the Algarve’: A stunning area for walking, re-energizing and not least, bathing in hot springs that are 2,000 years old. These pure and crystal clear waters boast dozens of important minerals. The resort is approximately 15 minutes from the towns of Portimão and Silves, and approximately a 60-minute car journey from Faro airport. The beach of Alvor is approximately 20 minutes drive from the hotel.

Why you’ll love it...
After a new Look & Feel, Monchique Resort & Spa reopened their doors with a fresh face to its restaurants, reception, wellness area and gym. The enormous suites gives an extra luxury touch to your well-deserved spa journey. The location will blown you away; tucked away in the mountains of Monchique. Tip! Take a walk to the ‘Caldas de Monchique’ where you find the thermal water source. It is worth drinking the fresh mountain water which contains many healthy minerals.

Health Information for Travellers


The resort offers 190 suites in total. All suites are the same size: 60m2. The executive suite in contrast measures 90m2. The suites with sea views are also located by a continuous mountain road. (Despite it being 20km away, on clear days you can see the sea!) If you’re looking for peace and quiet, we recommend the suites at the rear of the building. Although they offer less spectacular views (mountain view), the situation of these suites is a little quieter. Each suite has a separate bedroom, living room, kitchenette, 2 bathrooms (one with bath and another with bath/shower), flat screen TV and balcony.
