Palmares Ocean Living & Golf - Western Algarve, Portugal
Sitting in a natural amphitheatre with spectacular sea views over the estuary of Alvor in Portugal’s Western Algarve, Palmares Ocean Living & Golf combines exceptional golfing and leisure facilities with homes from award-winning architects RCR Arquitectes.
The resort offers the ideal blend between the natural environment and on-site facilities designed to promote a healthy, relaxed lifestyle. There is a 27-hole golf course, designed by renowned American architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. Homeowners at Palmares benefit from annual membership for two people, meaning they can take to the fairways whenever the mood takes them. There’s also a golf academy designed to facilitate professional tuition, as well as six practice greens, all set against the stunning backdrop of the ocean.
Palmares is also home to some of the finest dining facilities in the Algarve, all housed in the brand new, spectacular Clubhouse, designed by Pritzker Award-winning RCR Arquitectes. The Experience Bar is headed up by award-winning mixologist Jaime Montgomery, whose flights of cocktails take patrons on a journey of exceptional flavours and ingenuity. The main restaurant showcases the strength of local flavours, while there’s also fine dining restaurant Al Sud, which has just gained its first Michelin star under the stewardship of Executive Chef Louis Anjos.
The low density of construction of Palmares, at just 5.7%, forges an exceptional harmony between residential accommodation, golf and the ocean. Strict construction parameters have been put in place to protect the sea views, including building implementation zones and height limits. This ensures that each villa or apartment has the opportunity to benefit individually from the stunning surroundings, while the views from the clubhouse and golf course are simply gorgeous.
Palmares Ocean Living & Golf is home to a boutique, 20-room, five-star hotel, with a second five-star hotel due to be created as part of the resort’s masterplan. That plan will also see a total of 460 homes built across the resort, including 103 villas and 357 apartments.
At present, 37 new, signature apartments and one luxury villa are under construction as the next phase of homes at this luxury beach, ocean and golf destination. Completion is due during Q1 2022, with further apartments and villas due to follow later this year. The ocean-view plots deliver exceptional views, with a range of options available in order to suit buyers’ differing needs.
