This brand-new resort leads down to the white sands of Algodoeiro Beach. It’s huge - in fact, it'll take around 15 minutes to walk from one side to the other - and is surrounded by tropical gardens. Santa Maria is just a few minutes' drive away, too. Interior designers here are going for something completely contemporary, so expect rooms and public spaces dressed in neutral, earthy tones, and accessorised by plants and wall art.
