Vilamoura unveils proposal for second stage development

Vilamoura, one of the Algarve's largest leisure developments, has announced its master plan for the second stage in its development.

Eighteen projects are available, which will accommodate a mixture of residential, leisure, tourism and retail uses. The plan is based around six lifestyle themes; Vilamoura Marina, Vilamoura Golf, Vilamoura Active, Vilamoura Villages, Vilamoura Estates and Vilamoura Lakes, reflecting the diversity and aspiration of the project's intended customer base. 

A key facet of the masterplan will be Vilamoura Lakes which will feature lakeside landscapes to create one of the leading lake resorts in Europe. It will comprise 250,000sqm of natural lakescape, including 1,900 residential units, five tourist-focused developments comprising 3,600 beds and retail and gourmet restaurant offerings, all located within an environmentally considerate setting.

Vilamoura has also revealed details of the planned enhancement of the current Marina area, which will include an international Yacht Club, a branded spa and gym, three restaurants and a boutique shopping experience.
