One of the most well-traveled hotspots on the European beach circuit, the Algarve region of southern Portugal is packed with its fair share of big-time resorts — and it’s the contrast with this backdrop of uniformity that makes a newly renovated 19th-century residence like the Bela Vista so appealing. Thankfully, the building stayed in the family over the years, so the redesign wasn’t a scorched-earth overhaul. Elements like the original bar in the main house have been retained, restored, and juxtaposed with modern furniture and eye-catching décor.

The historic house is perched on an outcrop above the beach, giving it a distinctive mansion-on-the-hill look. With the design update came a modest expansion, so guests can also choose to stay in the Blue House or the Garden House, the latter home to 20 rooms defined by personal terraces. Inside, the mildly Hitchcockian atmosphere of the exterior is replaced by the detail-oriented style of an urban design hotel. The lobby boasts one of the quirkier grand pianos we’ve ever seen, and the colorful, exacting sensibility puts an artistic spin on everything from floor tiles to fireplaces. Guest rooms are no exception — while the spirit of the old place asserts itself in the form of high ceilings and ornate wallpaper, contemporary furniture and bold hues generally prevail.

Amenities are upscale and up to date — this isn’t a bed-and-breakfast, despite the residential first impression — and the Bela Vista boasts service to match. Al fresco dining on the terrace involves a menu of local Algarve cuisine, while the pool and spa offer all the relaxation you can handle.

Kindly note that Bela Vista Hotel & Spa is seasonally closed from the beginning of November until the end of February.
