Just ten minutes from the hustle and bustle of Lagos you’ll find an eclectic hotel and wellbeing centre – the first Neal’s Yard spa in Portugal. Perched above the Atlantic, hugged by palms and sprinkled in sunlight this striking terracotta building is the place to recharge. Your stay includes morning yoga sessions; potions from Neal’s Yard in the huge bathrooms; veggie, vegan and even raw food goodness for dinner, so revel in the opportunity to eat clean and treat your body like a temple, you’re guaranteed to leave feeling completely zen. Bedrooms are brightly coloured and fun; each is individually styled using traditional Portuguese textiles, upcycled flea market finds, calm lighting. Every room has a balcony or terrace overlooking the lush garden or out to sea. Make the most of the onsite spa and pool (no nasty chemicals here) or venture out for watery fun (the helpful staff can book anything you fancy). Lagos’ old town is charming and packed with good places to eat, while the beautiful town of Monchique is certainly worth a trip.
