Quinta do Lago, Europe’s leading luxury golf and lifestyle resort, has enhanced its reputation as one of Europe’s premier stay-and-play destinations following the acquisition of the Magnolia hotel.
Celebrating its 45th anniversary, the prestigious Portuguese resort has added the chic Miami-style boutique hotel to its portfolio of accommodation options, making it the perfect location for golfers and families to enjoy the all year-round temperate climate.
Situated on the Algarve, just 15 minutes from Faro airport, Quinta do Lago boasts three championship golf courses – Laranjal, the North and South – and Magnolia’s golf guests can now take advantage of some incredible packages to soak up the winter sun with three, five or seven-night stays.
A three-night break between November 2017 and February 2018 with two rounds of golf on the North and Laranjal courses starts from just £325 (€364), while a five-night stay with four rounds across all three courses is available for £606 (€678). Pricing for a week stay including five rounds of golf can is only £787 (€881). All pricing is per person sharing a twin or double room and includes breakfast and free access to the sauna, jacuzzi, Turkish bath and gym. There is a 10 per cent discount for bookings made before Wednesday, December 20.
Sean Moriarty, chief executive of Quinta do Lago, said: “We are delighted to have acquired the Magnolia hotel, which will provide our guests with a vibrant and chic base in which to stay while they experience our unique lifestyle resort.
“It adds perfectly to our outstanding golf facilities and burgeoning portfolio of world-class restaurants and amenities, which include The Campus, our state-of-the-art new sports facility.”
The 74-room Magnolia looks set to become one of the hottest destinations this winter, boasting a vibrant and fashionable bar and a totally revamped menu under the guidance of head chef Tom Briggs, previously of Soho House and the Hoxton Grill.
In-line with clean-eating trends, the hotel’s LIVE kitchen will serve freshly prepared dishes all day, such as nutritional salads, superfoods and seasonal daily options. As a guilty pleasure, golfers can indulge in the kitchen’s delectable The Mag Burger.
Seven exclusive cottages are also available at the Magnolia for added privacy, complete with lounge, kitchen and sun terrace to compliment the stylish main bedrooms, while free transfers, early breakfasts, snack bags and special rates for group bookings are also available.
Excelling for more than four decades, Quinta do Lago has been reinvented to provide the most vibrant and unique luxury lifestyle experience to be found anywhere in Europe, offering something to suit every taste and interest while, at the same time, staying faithful to the resort’s illustrious history.
Golf lies at the heart of Quinta do Lago – home to Europe’s only Paul McGinley Golf Academy and the only TaylorMade Performance Center in Southern Europe, while the resort was also named ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ at the 2015 World Golf Awards.
Set among 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park, there’s plenty to keep guests occupied away from the golf fairways, with events, tennis, cycling and water sports just some of the extensive leisure activities available.
The Campus, a state-of-the-art sports complex is the latest addition, giving guests access to a world-class base where they can hone their skills on the multiple tennis and padel courts, or the Bike Shed and its array of stunning cycle tracks and scenic road routes.
With Phase One completed, this multi-million-pound investment is set to be the ideal facility in Europe for athletes of all levels – whether they are beginners or world-class performers.
Quinta do Lago, now home to 11 highly-acclaimed restaurants, has long been famed for its culinary delights. The Bovino Steakhouse is one of the best-loved dining experiences in the Algarve, complementing the sophisticated setting of Casa Velha and the hugely popular Shack Bar, one of the coolest spots around, which is situated on the lake’s shoreline.
