Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas, a leading operator and developer of luxury hotels, resorts and spas, has announced the first Anantara in Europe. Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort will join the brand’s luxury portfolio in April 2017. The 280-room property is currently operating as Tivoli Victoria and boasts stunning views over the Arnold Palmer designed Oceanico golf course.

Discerning travellers will be immersed in centuries old Portuguese culture and traditions, with a wealth of expertly crafted local experiences, world-renowned Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisine, and indigenous spa treatments drawing on healing traditions dating from Roman times. In advance of the spring rebrand, parts of the resort will receive a soft refurbishment, including the main lobby, the gym and impressive new children’s facilities will be added.
