Vilalara Longevity Thalassa & Medical Spa
Algarve, Portugal
Great spa facilities • Off the beaten path • Romantic sunsets
Famed for its sweeping sea views, extensive sporting amenities, and upmarket contemporary design, the family-friendly Vilalara Thalassa hotel makes for a relaxing seaside escape. Many come to this slice of paradise to unwind in its sumptuous spa; an expansive candle-lit facility packed full of effective Thalassa-based treatments. Nutritious dining options and swathes of golden sand only add to the appeal.


Occupying an enviable position by Vilalara’s coast, the luxurious 5-star hotel covers a whopping 11 hectares of lush garden, ensuring tranquility is never more than a stone’s throw away. At the foot of the hotel lie the golden sands of the Praia das Gaivotas beach, an idyllic spot to enjoy aquatic activities or soak up some sun on the sand.

Guests can transfer from the Faro Airport in just 40 minutes.

Rooms & Suites

You won’t feel cramped for a moment at the Vilalara Thalassa, for the luxury complex is packed full of spacious suites rather than tiny rooms.

Each featuring floor to ceiling sliding doors and upscale contemporary design, the hotel’s 104 junior suites come in five different styles. The smallest (55m2) provide a cosy living space, plush furnishings, and a balcony with pleasant garden views. Opt for the grandiose Junior Suite SPA, however, and you’ll enjoy private wellness facilities within the tastefully decorated 110 m2 space.

For a genuinely lavish vacation, the suites are roomier and offer finer quality furnishings. The two-bedroom Suite Prestige is ideal for families and traveling groups.

Pool & Facilities

The Vilalara Thalassa hotel offers ample outdoor pursuits, ensuring an active holiday the whole family can enjoy.

No less than four saltwater swimming pools line the shore; the perfect place to swim for those who’d rather not venture into the waves.

Fancy a spot of tennis instead? Then relish in your favourite sport at the hotel’s premium grass courts, perhaps under the tuition of a professional coach.

Of course, the pièce de résistance is the Vilalara Longevity Thalassa & Medical Spa, a lux 2,600 m2 facility that fuses ancient Thalassa techniques, state-of-the-art wellness solutions, and high-tech anti-aging treatments–all of this overlooking the lush greenery of the gardens and the clear blue waters of the Atlantic. Those in the know regard this as among the best thalassotherapy centres on Earth, unsurprising given there are 20 dedicated treatment rooms, several multipurpose wet and dry rooms, and two dynamic seawater pools to use.

A well-equipped fitness centre and group exercise program make for the perfect workout, while the beauty salon and hairdresser will get you looking your best. An in-house team of Thalassa experts is on hand to guide you through the holistic approach. By encompassing nutrition, exercise, relaxation, hydration, sleep, supplements and detox, Thalassa can optimize your health, happiness, and vitality.

Food & Drink

Nutrition is the focal point at the hotel’s two clifftop restaurants: the B&G and the Terrace Grill. Enjoy tasty low-calorie meals made from fresh locally sourced ingredients, being sure to sample the mouth-watering seafood for which Portugal is famed.

If you’d rather something more decadent, several heartier traditional dishes are available as well.
