Domes Lake Algarve, Autograph Collection

With direct access to Praia de Falesia beach and a short walk to a stunning Marina, Domes Lake Algarve is a perfect complement for the Cosmopolitan resort of Vilamoura.



With its own private lake, the five-star Domes Lake Algarve introduces the Algarve to the unique character and soul of legendary Domes Resorts. Luxurious and inspiring with extraordinary character, and immersive experiences that allow you to remain in sync with the landscape while enjoying opulent, world-class accommodation as well as cosmopolitan Vilamoura nearby.

The private sea water lake is surrounded by unmatched gardens and stretches of lawn, a 1.2km wooden walking deck that leads to bars, observation pergolas, and restaurants set on the lake, scented with fig and almond trees. Of the three pools spread across family and adults-only designated areas, the natural sand bottom pool is a one-of-a-kind experience.

The hotel itself boasts a monumental interior with a majestic ambiance of sights, sounds, and aromas bound together under painted Domed ceilings, full height hanging fabrics, and natural light through magnificent windows. The Mosaics, the bronze details, the colourful tiling blend with a temperature colour contrast of peacock blues, burgundies, nature-inspired wallpaper, and rugs that evoke a palace-like atmosphere and sophistication unique to Domes Resorts in the Algarve.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a Domes Resort hotel without a selection of signature restaurants serving local dishes with a Med twist, Neo Greek seafood and a multi-Mediterranean degustation restaurant floating on the lake plus two bars, each with its own unique identity pouring flavours from around the world.
