Southern Portugal’s Algarve region is the kind of place where the beaches stretch for hundreds of kilometers and you can’t drive for ten minutes in any direction without hitting a world-class golf course. And yet among all this sun-soaked leisure lies a hotel that’s as dedicated to self-improvement as it is to laid-back good times. With a wellness program integrated into every aspect of its accommodations, from the cuisine to the nature-preserve setting, Monchique Wellness Resort brings some weapons-grade detox treatments to one of Europe’s most well-traveled vacation hotspots.

The first indication that this is more than your average umbrella-cocktail resort is its inland location, nestled in the mountains above the Algarve’s beachfront madness. The hotel’s glass-fronted exterior is surprisingly imposing, and inside, the big windows become indispensable, offering views of the mountainside and the coast. The white palette and clean lines of the guest rooms don’t exactly come as a shock, but if there’s one thing modern minimalism can do, it’s a welcome open-plan airiness. And the extra space pays off, as dishwasher-equipped kitchenettes are standard.

There’s no point in being coy: the public spaces and guest rooms are simply the prelude to the resort’s medical spa. Staffed by doctors and chefs who provide in-depth consultations — including all manner of diagnostics and screenings — these treatments go far beyond massage therapies and hot soaks. The focus on holistic wellness doesn’t stop at the spa, either — Chef Jan’s cuisine emphasizes healthy meals accompanied by seasonal fruit smoothies. Of course, if you’d prefer to cap off your dinner with something a bit stronger, there are plenty of regional wines to be had.

Please note: Monchique Welness Resort will be closed for renovations from January 16 to April 30.
