Ombria, the luxury resort located in Loulé, has received the Sustainable Construction and Energy Efficiency prize at the 2023 Lisbon Real Estate Exhibition – SIL Awards for its Viceroy Residences project.
The development includes “65 exclusive one- to two-bedroom apartments integrated into a five-star hotel managed by Viceroy Hotels & Resorts,” the resort says in a statement to the press.
“Distributed across several buildings inspired by the architecture of an Algarvian village, the apartments have interior areas ranging from 70 to 173sqm. They are fully furnished and equipped, with interior design by Wimberly Interiors, which integrate meticulously customised local natural materials. Some apartments include private pools and jacuzzis, allowing for the enjoyment of views over the golf course,” it adds.
Päivi Tomula, Director of the Real Estate Investment Department at Pontos Group, has celebrated the accomplishment.
“We are extremely proud of this award, which distinguishes the exceptional work of Ombria in the area of sustainable construction and energy efficiency, which also represents the fundamental values of Pontos Group,” she said.
“From the beginning, we have committed to integrating sustainable development, community integration, and environmental responsibility into the DNA of Ombria. This has opened the way for us to contribute not only to the preservation and sustainability of the planet but also to a closer relationship of cooperation with the local community in the years to come.”
Meanwhile, Ombria’s Director of Engineering, Cláudio Correia, has underlined that “the perfect integration between bioclimatic architecture and the use of renewable energies will allow the realisation of the sustainable vision of NZEBs (nearly zero energy buildings), including the installation of a pioneering geothermal system that is already a national case study.”
The Viceroy Residences and the Viceroy Hotel at Ombria are scheduled to open in the autumn of 2023. Owners will have access to all the hotel’s services, from its restaurants to its spa, as well as a wide range of discounts at the hotel and golf course and all other Viceroy hotels across the world.
