VILA VITA Parc is a superb 5 star resort that basks in the Algarve sunshine in Southern Portugal. Known for its outstanding hospitality, easeful luxury and magnificent ocean-front location above a secluded cove beach, the resort is an elegant and stylish world unto itself.

An integral part of VILA VITA’s offering is the vast array of wonderful cuisines and delicious food that can be enjoyed both at the resort and at its off-site restaurants. Michelin star fine-dining, healthy eating, sea-view meals, the finest patisserie and magical mixology are all part of the resort’s DNA, welcoming you to the Culinary World of VILA VITA, to be enjoyed both by resort residents and non-residents.

Spread over hectares of beautifully maintained gardens (there are over 5,000 palm trees!) and washed by the Atlantic, the resort is home to eight restaurants, each quite different in its offering and setting, with a further three restaurants located off-resort but close by. Most restaurants are open to the public as well as resort guests, with advance booking advised. The styles range from elegant fine dining to fun, beachside, sunset meals and drinks.
