Quinta do Lago is a renowned sporting and wellness resort situated in the heart of the Algarve. It's the perfect destination for families and friends looking to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.

Portugal is one of the first countries to be added to the UK’s ‘green list’ meaning that UK travellers face no quarantine restrictions when visiting this summer.

Set within the privacy and security of the Ria Formosa nature reserve, the resort boasts open green spaces where guests can enjoy a welcoming and relaxed environment along with delicious cuisine and breadth of sporting activities - through the premier multi-sports hub, The Campus.

With an inviting, warm climate surrounded by vibrant wildlife, the resort has remained a low-density area for almost 50 years.

In the heart of nature, guests can enjoy golden sandy beaches, lakeside kayaking or even triathlon training. Cycling enthusiasts can hire bikes from The Bike Shed, located at The Campus, to discover the beautiful nature trails surrounding the resort, which offer fantastic sightseeing opportunities.

On top of that, there are three award-winning golf courses, and The Campus provides easy access to that sought-after active lifestyle with fitness classes tailored to every level, padel and tennis sessions, fun group exercise classes and relaxing spa facilities.

The Campus' facilities are designed to the top standard of professional athletes and the training centre has welcomed plenty of competing sportsmen such as the Six Nations Irish rugby team, Brian O'Driscoll, and Rio Ferdinand.

A short walk or cycle ride from The Campus, guests can stay and play at The Magnolia Hotel – reopening on 28th May and offering affordable and stylish accommodation as well as a new energy in the heart of the Algarve.

The hotel provides the idyllic base to enjoy everything the resort offers, but without the price tag to match. A variety of traditional Portuguese apartments and villas are also available to rent.

To celebrate the reopening of the resort, Quinta do Lago is offering a dedicated calendar of events this summer – all designed with sustainability in mind and to encourage guests to spend time outdoors.

These range from golf tournaments, movies in the park, guided nature walks of the Ria Formosa and tours of the local bird and animal life.

The Campus will also be hosting, tennis and padel tournaments alongside triathlon training camps and social cycling events. Live outdoor music will be available at the resort’s bars and restaurants too, including Quinta do Lago’s first Asian-fusion restaurant, UMAMI, which opens on 18th May.

Quinta do Lago is committed to preserving its natural environment, having recently created its own farm to provide its high-end restaurants with homegrown organic produce.

Over the past year, significant investments have also been made to enhance the resort’s luxury offering, including a renovation of the South golf course and the seafood restaurant Casa do Lago – a renowned favourite.

Quinta do Lago is the perfect destination for those looking to escape crowded spaces, get back to nature and experience a new adventure with their loved ones.
