Conrad Algarve: The Art of Hospitality
At the Conrad, they know that one size doesn't fit all. Each guest is unique with unique tastes.
The Conrad brand is synonymous with quality, luxury and excellence. A recent addition to the Conrad Hotel family, the Conrad Algarve flawlessly maintains the exacting standards of the brand and brings to the Algarve exceptional service and personalized care.
The Conrad brand is present in many of the world’s major cities such as Beijing, Hong Kong, Istanbul, New York and Chicago, as well as enticing tourist resorts like the Maldives, Koh Samui and Bali. Now, the Algarve has been added to the Conrad roll call. The world renowned brand is certain that the the natural beauties of southern Portugal’s playground combined with its own reputation for excellence will lure many visitors to the region.
The Conrad Algarve is impressive. The main avenue, lined with water fountains, leads guests to the white marble and glass rotunda of the reception - a stunning four floor high celebration of the unique Algarve light. A contemporary interpretation of an 18th century palace, and with a nod to the Algarve’s Moorish past, the Conrad Algarve invites a connection with its natural setting whether it’s enjoying the views across the gardens, pools and countryside from the huge picture windows in reception, a bespoke treatment in the Conrad Spa outdoor cabanas or some rest and relaxation by one of the pools.
But what makes a stay at the Conrad Algarve special is not just the architecture. It is the attention to every detail to ensure that each guest’s stay is as pleasurable as possible. At the Conrad, they know that one size doesn’t fit all. So, each Conrad experience can be customized to suit you. Reaping the benefits of technology by using the Conrad Concierge App, guests at Conrad Algarve can choose what range of toiletries they’d like in their room, can order room service, book a spa treatment, request a wakeup call, ask for a hypo-allergenic room or ask for information - before they even arrive at the hotel.
But it’s the personal touches that stand out most. The literal Portuguese translation for the word hospitality is “the art of receiving guests” and at the Conrad Algarve they excel at this art. Service is professional, discreet yet always friendly and very efficient. You are greeted by name, your preferences are noted and remembered, your comfort and enjoyment is a priority. Even the youngest guests are entitled to the best efforts of the Conrad brand: to ensure that the children’s menu at Louro Restaurant meet with both parents and children’s approval, the Conrad Algarve had local children contribute to both the menu design and content.
As a global brand, Conrad hotels also acknowledge the richness of each individual hotel’s location and host nation culture. The Conrad Algarve’s signature gourmet restaurant Gusto by Heinz Beck makes full use of the excellent local fish, fruit and vegetables that are available in the Algarve to create an innovative and deliciously healthy menu. And the artwork that adorns the walls (chosen by local gallery ArtCatto) is representative of Algarve art, culture and gastronomy.
