The new W Algarve is set to open in the spring of 2021 marking the debut of W Hotels Worldwide in Portugal. The hotel and residences will be located just outside of Albufeira on the iconic cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
W Hotel is a combination of urban glam meets beach life in a region famous for its beautiful, secluded coves, year-round sunshine and enticing cuisine. Guests can expect pulsating beats, vibrant flavours, and bright contemporary design.
The hotel will have 134 rooms and suites plus 83 residences, all ocean facing and boasting spacious balconies. Atlantic colours and asymmetrical forms that mimic the nearby cliffs define the design; it is the Algarve reinterpreted by W.
Facilities will include a state-of-the-art fitness centre ‘FIT’ and an ‘Away’ spa with seven treatment rooms, plus outdoor pools. To refuel and replenish there will be an authentic Portuguese Algarve-inspired dining restaurant, plus a classic and modern Italian restaurant.
Guests can pick their favourite bubbles from the most extensive collection of champagnes and sparkling wines at ‘Air’ perched on the cliffs overlooking the ocean or take in the spectacular views and drinks at ‘Sea Sky’ bar to the beats of international DJs spinning the decks.
In their ‘WOW Suites’ guests can experience next-level luxury with two floors of state-of-the art resort living with ultramodern BOSE entertainment system, signature W bed, and a spacious ocean facing balcony, while some suites have a rooftop terrace private plunge pool.
The ‘Extreme WOW Suite’ has a rooftop terrace where luscious gardens surround an elevated lounge seating spot, DJ booth, dining and bar area, and an infinity pool from which guests can soak up the incredible sunset views over the Atlantic Ocean. The bedroom design is inspired by the beautiful Benagil cave and the picturesque Algarve fishing villages.
Guests can also enjoy ultimate exclusivity in one of 83 W Algarve Residences. Pick a one, two, three, or four-bedroom apartment, with private ocean facing terraces. The high-spec, open-plan kitchen comes with state-of-the-art SMEG appliances and statement furniture.

Albufeira is known for its pretty beach, colourful fishing boats and famous nightlife. If you travel a little further along the coast you will come to Vilamoura with its vibrant Marina and buzzing restaurants. And for an insight into the region’s history and culture, venture inland for historic towns with cobbled streets, bustling markets and peaceful orange and lemon groves: Silves, Loulé and Monchique are ripe for adventures.
