We’ve written a few times about the Greek resort brand Domes, as many of the resorts are Marriott Bonvoy properties and they provide a consistent format for luxury stays across Greece.
From my experience, the hotels are well-designed, stylish and have excellent service. The family-friendly resorts have both a creche and kids club and are well equipped if you have a young baby and adult-only resorts are equally thoughtfully designed.
The Domes brand is growing quickly, with 11 resorts open this summer including three new additions to the portfolio.
You can read our full guide to the resorts here.
Introducing Domes Lake Algarve, Autograph Collection
There’s now a new resort within Domes’ Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, but interestingly this resort is not in Greece but in Portugal.
Situated in the popular coastal resort of Vilamoura in southern Portugal, Domes Lake Algarve, Autograph Collection is set within the protected Formosa environmental park, but is also just a 20-minute walk from Vilamoura and a 30-minute drive from Faro airport. It additionally benefits from being the only hotel with access to Portugal’s stunning Praia da Falesia beach.
As part of the conversion process, Domes implemented a full renovation and reimagination of an existing hotel – the Lake Spa Resort, to bring it in line with Domes’ stylish approach to quiet luxury. Similar to the other Domes hotels, you can expect lots of natural tones and materials and plenty of greenery at Domes Lake Algarve.
As well a full design makeover, a new adults-only swimming pool has been added, and Domes has brought some of their signature concepts to the resort such as the seafood restaurant Topos – familiar to anyone who has stayed at the more established Domes of Corfu, Autograph Collection or Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection – and Soma Spa.
The popular kids’ club ‘Kiepos’ has also been included with access to some fun-looking additional children’s activities such as horse-riding and sailing.
Domes have also introduced ‘Residences’ to this property – large suites that can comfortably host families, or alternatively can be booked by up to 5 adults. This is perfect for any small groups of golfers, with several excellent golf courses on the resort’s doorstep. However, it is important to note that The Residences are not booked through the Marriott Bonvoy site, but through Domes Lake Algarve’s proprietary website here.
As part of Marriott Bonvoy, you would be able to earn points from your stay and access any elite status benefits (excluding the Residences). Depending on the brand and your status, this could include free breakfast, upgrades and the ability to use Suite Night Awards.
