Bringing the Algarve to a wider audience

It was great to see so many people appreciate what the Algarve offered in 2022. More guests than ever before chose this beautiful region as their top holiday destination.

This is expected to continue into 2023 as guests begin to book their summer vacations!

At SandyBlue, helping our owner partners attract guests and increase rental income is at the heart of everything we do. Furthermore, a love for the Algarve and giving our guests the very best experience spurs us on to continuously improve.

To help us on this mission and to further push the Algarve as the place to holiday, we have had some exciting developments to share.

Becoming part of the Awaze Vacation Rentals Group

In October 2022, SandyBlue officially became a part of the Awaze Vacation Rentals Group. A true leader in the travel space, they also work with James Villas, Novasol, Cottages and many more!

As part of their ‘Specialist Brand Division’, SandyBlue will continue to operate as a standalone, independent brand. The benefits of this acquisition are not for the SandyBlue team alone. It also means that guests and owners alike will still get the full SandyBlue experience, though it will definitely be enhanced.

What this means for our owner partners

In spite of the pandemic, the Algarve has gone from strength to strength in the tourism world. This has been great to see, but we want to take this success further. Not just for us, but for our owner partners too.

Awaze Group’s core values are very much aligned with our core values, which are to maximise owner income with quality guests and ensure owner properties are maintained to the highest of standards. Furthermore, their audience is far-reaching, meaning more people will see the SandyBlue portfolio than ever before.

With new resources to add to our villa rental strategy, we are sure our owner partners will thrive from these benefits. Being part of a group with so much expertise allows us to give them the best of both worlds – the SandyBlue experience, with added power behind it.

An exciting time for Algarve tourism

There is positivity in the air as the Algarve prepares for another year of delighting tourists from across the globe. With these exciting developments for the SandyBlue team, we’re excited to be part of this with even more strength behind us in 2023.
