Meet in style in Algarve, Portugal

In the heart of the Algarve region, the Ria Park Hotels resort offers an array of flexible meeting, accommodation and activity options for groups.

Just a 20-minute drive away from Faro International Airport, the award-winning Ria Park Hotels offers a relaxing, resort- style atmosphere combined with sophisticated meeting facilities. Among the accolades the property has received are being named Europe’s Leading Meetings and Conference Hotel 2017 and Portugal’s Leading Conference Hotel 2017 by the World Travel Awards.

With a prime location in the Algarve region, within the Ria Formosa Natural Park and near the ocean, set between the Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo resorts, groups can make the most of outdoor activities.

Indulge in the resort’s sub-tropical gardens and enjoy the nearby golden, sandy beaches, while sporting enthusiasts will be well catered for at the resort’s challenging golf courses. The site also boasts two tennis courts and a full-sized football pitch, and groups can explore natural trails, all within walking distance from the resort. Other options include karting, buggy or jeep safaris, clam-picking, flying a kite, sustainable team-building exercises and local food and drinks workshops.

Alongside the 252-room, five-star Ria Park Hotel & Spa and the 109-room, four-star Ria Garden Hotel, groups have the opportunity to hire out the resort, with 400 rooms available. For a relaxing break between meetings, dining and drinking options include the Lusitano restaurant (which offers a covered terrace overlooking tropical gardens), a hotel lobby with a bar, and a further cocktail bar with an outdoor lounge area. 

Flexible venues

From board meetings to large-scale international events, the resort’s venues cater for groups of all sizes, making it the ideal destination for intimate gatherings or more opulent events. Gardens, terraces, pools, rooftop terraces and a 1,500m2 lawn area are all available as breakout areas or for events, while guests can enjoy their own area at Garrão Beach, a 10-minute walk away. With 15 elegantly-decorated meeting rooms, including a congress centre catering for up to 1,100, offering natural daylight and surrounded by the resort’s tropical gardens, delegates can enjoy a relaxing environment for meetings and events. All this is combined with state-of-the-art technology including projection screens, sound systems and wireless internet. A range of additional outdoor venues are also within easy reach.


Memorable events 

Host tailor-made team-building activities, workshops, cocktails, dinners, private concerts and much more. Previous events include worldwide car launches – cars can be showcased in meeting rooms, the hotel lobby, gardens and even the rooftop terrace – fashion-collection previews and high-level government meetings. These demonstrate the resort’s ability to cater for all kinds of events and the most discerning clients. For incentive activities, options include a boat trip along the Algarve coastline followed by drinks at sunset and dinner on the beach.
