Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Domes Lake Algarve’s superlative location sees flocks of migratory birds each year, providing a Mediterranean, oasis-like setting. Combined with architectural grandeur and views of the marina on the horizon, this is a place where you can soak up the best of both worlds: lush green landscapes and the cosmopolitan vibe of Vilamoura.

Later, after a lazy day on the beach, dine on Greek island fare and seafood at Topos, or try some Greek-Mediterranean cuisine at the lakeside Makris venue. Dance the night away to live DJ music at the lagoon bar with a tasty cocktail in hand or stop over at Raw Gastro for some gourmet bites and champagne. Alternatively, if you’re in the mood for some authentic, Portuguese seafood, the rustic SORA Beach Restaurant is the place to go for traditional local fare accompanied by enchanting sunset views.

If not, perhaps you’d like to relax on a lakeside pergola to watch local birds or walk around the wooden deck that meanders around the lake.
