Staying Inspired at Conrad Algarve

At the end of your sojourn, you can say you truly travelled and explored, you didn’t just stay.

If you had 1, 3 or 5 hours to explore the Algarve, what would you do? That’s the question the Conrad Algarve asked itself. The answer has resulted in the fabulous array of immersive experiences that guests can enjoy during their stay – Algarve 1/3/5 .

Following the Conrad mantra “Never just stay. Stay inspired”, Algarve 1/3/5 brings a whole new depth to hotel stays. Guests become storytellers, witnesses to the Algarve’s rich culture and cuisine, with hands on encounters of intrinsically Algarvian experiences. The Conrad brand understands that wonderful travels are not just about the impeccable luxury of their hotels but also about the sights and smells of a foreign land, different flavours and sounds, and about the emotions that flood your soul and live in your memory, created by new, fun and enriching experiences.

The Conrad Algarve is one of 17 Conrad destinations to offer the 1/3/5 experiences which aim to give their guests the one of a kind experiences that enrich their stay. Working closely with local businesses, the 1/3/5 programme allows travellers to see a little of life through the prism of local knowledge and culture. 1/3/5 is not about global experiences or virtual reality. It is all about immersing yourself in the local cuisine, culture and history, getting your hands dirty - literally and figuratively – so that at the end of your sojourn, you can say you truly travelled and explored, you didn’t just stay.

The Conrad Algarve 1/3/5 programme offers some quite unique experiences. Whether you have just a single hour free to explore or several hours to do as you wish, there is an activity to suit. From suggestions for the best seafood meals at small, local restaurants, far off the radar of gastronomic guides but favourites with locals, to the opportunity to dig for your own clams on a deserted sand bank island. Or how about some fresh Ria Formosa oysters – sail out to the oyster beds and watch the captain pluck them from their beds, shuck them on the boat and serve to you there and then with some chilled wine? You can take to the seas to look for dolphins in the wild, or fish for the catch of the day. You can even bring your catch back and have it prepared for you by the Conrad chefs. Explore the western beaches for dinosaur footprints or visit a local cork factory – Portuguese cork is considered to be the best in the world – and the stately groves of cork oaks that every nine years yield their precious bark. Or visit a local market, packed with fresh local produce, loud with the calls of traders, pungent with the smells of fresh herbs and bread.

Whatever your interests and tastes, any of these experiences will ensure you leave the Algarve with much more than just a tan.
