The resort will offer venues for all types of corporate events – from VIP dinners to large scale conferences. The stand-alone conference centre will have capacity for up to 800 people over eight versatile rooms.

Located along southern Portugal’s Algarve coast, the property is just 15 minutes from Faro International Airport. The hotel will contain 280 rooms and suites and the two-bedroom Anantara Suite will house a terrace with a private dining area, jacuzzi and sundeck.

Additional facilities will include a golf course, four swimming pools, a floodlit tennis court and state-of-the-art fitness centre. The Anantara Spa will offer Ayurveda based treatments, yoga and tai chi sessions.

Six restaurants and bars offer seafood, a buffet with live cooking stations, local Ria Formosa oysters and sushi. Private visits to a local vineyard can be arranged, in addition to a cooking class which will combine a tour of the Loulé food market with an interactive cooking class in an open theatre kitchen.
