CNN rates Bela Vista among “world’s most beautiful beachfront hotels”

CNN is more than enthusiastic about Portimão’s Bela Vista Hotel.

After including it in its list of “Europe’s 20 most beautiful hotels” (click here), the American news giant has now featured it in a selection of the “world’s 21 most beautiful beachfront hotels”.

“Located on the beachfront at Praia da Rocha, Bela Vista was the first hotel to open in the Algarve, back in 1934,” says the channel.

“Though it has since been joined by dozens of other high-end lodgings, its eclectic charm and intimate boutique-feel keeps it above the rest.

“The hotel’s original decor – painted wooden ceilings and colorful wall mosaics – has been kept intact through a recent refurbishment, which has updated the property with chic modern furnishings,” it adds.

The news giant also highlights that all 38 rooms are individually designed and decorated, and most have balconies with views over Praia da Rocha.
