Bela Vista makes CNN’s list of “Europe’s 20 most beautiful hotels”

Portimão’s Bela Vista Hotel & Spa has been included in a list of “Europe’s 20 most beautiful hotels” published online by American news giant CNN.

The hotel’s “eclectic charm” and “intimate boutique feel” make it stand out from the crowd, according to CNN, while its highlight is “without doubt its outdoor freshwater pool, which is flanked by palm trees and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean”.

The news company also stresses that Bela Vista was the first hotel to open in the Algarve, back in 1934, and adds that its “original decor – painted wooden ceilings and colorful wall mosaics — has been kept intact through a recent refurbishment that’s outfitted the property with modern updates and chic, bold furnishings.”
