Onyria Palmares Resort to Add Boutique Hotel

PORTUGAL—A new five-star boutique hotel is to be built alongside Onyria Palmares Beach & Golf Resort on the Algarve coast here.

The Onyria Palmares Beach House Hotel, which will feature 18 rooms and two suites, will open in 2016 and offer views to the Bay of Lagos, with beds facing the windows so guests wake up looking toward the Meia-Praia beach.

The new hotel will adopt the same service standards as its sister property, the Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel, in Cascais. It will overlook both the 18th green and the practice area a short distance from the beach, and will provide hospitality services to villa owners at the destination, such as concierge, housekeeping and food and beverage.

António Pinto Coelho, the resort’s operations general director, stated, “We believe the new hotel will be the finest of its type in Lagos. The description ‘beach house’ comes from the location and view, and the home comforts of the service level, whether guests are in the privacy of their rooms, in the bar, restaurant or in the swimming pool.

The boutique hotel follows on the heels of a launch of a limited number of villa plots at the site.

Construction on the hotel is scheduled to begin in June. Plans also allow for another 152 hotel rooms to be built in stages.

The family-owned and run Onyria Golf Resorts has also developed golf, business and leisure-oriented projects at Cascais, Portugal (Hotel Quinta da Marinha Resort and Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso), and in Turkey (Onyria Claros Beach & Spa Resort).
