There are hotels that stand out for their service, others for their location, and still others for their offerings. But the ones that really leave a mark are those hotels that combine all of these, making us always want to extend our stay and return. That’s what happens at the EPIC SANA Algarve, a home away from home, nestled in a pine forest with a view of the sea, on top of the Falésia Beach, in Albufeira. The experience starts right upon arrival. The entrance to this five-star hotel is discreet. You need to move forward for the EPIC SANA Algarve to be revealed, without ever seeming too large, despite being on an eight-hectare plot of land and having 160 deluxe rooms, 26 deluxe suites, and 43 resort suites, specially designed for families. And perhaps, in truth, this is the hotel’s biggest asset. No matter how many people may be staying here, there is no crowding, no confusion. On the contrary, there is space and tranquility, and that’s precious.
At EPIC SANA Algarve, vacations can be spent without any worries. . You may even forget that you arrived here by car – feel free to hand over the keys because you won’t need them anymore, not even to go to the beach. To reach Praia da Falésia, one of the most beautiful and popular beaches on the Algarve coast, you can (and should) do so on foot through the hotel’s direct access. Along six kilometers of sand, you will find busier areas and others where you will feel like you have the beach to yourself, with a usually calm and always crystal-clear sea. Above, only the line of high cliffs and the pine forest. But let’s go back to the hotel, there are three outdoor pools for adults and two for children, divided into two distinct areas, as well as a heated indoor pool. Between swims and rest, on a comfortable sun lounger or a bed by the pool, you can also enjoy a juice or a cocktail, just as a well-deserved vacations should feel like.
For lunch or dinner, there are several options. There are three restaurants that are quite different from each other and two bars, where you can also have an informal meal. At LIMA, an Italian restaurant that combines traditional flavors with fresh local ingredients, you can have good pizzas and pasta, as well as more sophisticated dishes such as a carabinero risotto. At UDDO, the focus is on Japanese cuisine, with a sushi bar particularly noteworthy, as well as dishes made on the wok and teppa ny aki (griddle). Finally, at AL QUIMIA, for a special experience. The gastronomic journey, inspired by the sea and the land, signed by the executive chef Luís Mourão, is made with a degustation menu, highlighting the quality of the natural resources and the creativity of the cuisine. A meal meant to be enjoyed leisurely, allowing you to fully savor every moment and flavor – if you are staying with your family and want to enjoy dinner without the children, EPIC SANA Algarve provides babysitting service upon request. Finally, don’t check out without stopping by SAYANNA WELLNESS & SPA, where you’ll have access to a selection of treatments and wellness offerings. There are five private treatment rooms, a treatment room with a Vichy shower, and an exclusive relaxation and treatment pavilion for two, as well as an Acqua area with a sauna, Turkish bath, and heated indoor pool. If only all holidays were like this.
