The Memmo Baleeira Hotel Sagres is a modern, four-star hotel on the far southwestern tip of Portugal.
With its relaxed, easy-going atmosphere, Sagres provides a welcome escape from the busy resort towns of Albufeira and Lagos. The Memmo Baleeira Hotel overlooks the town’s sheltered harbour where you can still spot the locals’ brightly painted lobster boats heading out to check their pots in the early morning sunshine.
Minimalism rules inside and out, where clean white concrete and sleek flooring have been beautifully merged to create an inviting and intimate hotel. Wide windows fill the shared spaces with an abundance natural light, and the bright ambience continues throughout the hotel’s 144 rooms and suites. Outside, there’s a south-facing sun terrace and outdoor pool, and the gardens lead to a luxurious spa, heated indoor pool, Turkish bath and sauna.
The in-house Fornaria restaurant is an excellent option for dinner in the evenings and Sagres renowned fish restaurants are all within easy walking distance. Similarly, the sheltered beaches at Praia do Martinha and Praia da Mareta are close by, with the 15th century Fortaleza de Sagres, the Rosa dos Ventos compass and Cabo de Sao Vicente beyond.
