BANGKOK, 8 November 2016: Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas, will open its first Anantara in Europe in April 2017.
Located in the Algarve, Portugal, Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort is a 15-minute drive from Faro International Airport.
The existing 280-room property is currently operating as Tivoli Victoria and boasts views over the Arnold Palmer designed Oceânico golf course.
The Algarve, on the southernmost costal region of Portugal, is known for its spectacular coastline and some of the region’s best beaches. It is also famous for its yachting, deep sea fishing and 40 world-class championship golf courses.
Anantara’s parent company CEO Minor Hotels, Dillip Rajakarier, said: “(This is) our first Anantara in Europe, which is a real milestone for the brand. Since our recent expansion into both Europe and South America with the acquisition of Tivoli Hotels & Resorts, our strategy is to bring our existing brands into these new regions of operation and the launch of Anantara Vilamoura in Portugal is the first part of this plan.”
Anantara currently operates 37 hotels and resorts in 12 countries, having recently added two new resorts each in both Sri Lanka and Oman.
