Four Seasons Fairways is a resort with personality. One facet of the luxury 132-villa property is its sleek design, which has been upgraded recently and marries contemporary craftsmanship with a Portuguese twist. Central to the resort, which boasts a mix of two and three-bedroom villas and villa-style apartments, is The Clubhouse which includes an impressive glass-walled wine cellar, indoor-outdoor bar, two heated swimming pools and a spectacular Upside-Down World Kids Club.

Another facet is the Four Seasons Fairways’ approach to hospitality, which is easy-going, social and flexible – a style seen in Amara restaurant and VIVO Bistro & Cocktail lounge – reflecting the resort’s Portuguese heritage and hands-on family culture of care. This is high-end hospitality without the attitude, which makes it particularly appealing.

The Clubhouse

Open year round, the team has created a design and ambience which works in tandem with an unrivalled menu of activities. While the area is renowned for the excellence of its golfing facilities in the famed Faro Golden Triangle, there is a wealth of options for the sports addict – tennis, cycling, walking – as for those in search of relaxation. The resort is home to an intimate beauty and wellness centre, offering yoga and tai chi while the neighbouring Ria Formosa nature reserve is an ideal way to switch off and enjoy the idyllic surroundings. For shoppers, Bougainvillea Plaza and Quinta are must-visits as is the neighbouring beach and restaurant options – some of which are the best in the world.

All told, it’s the perfect destination in off-peak times for families or groups of friends who enjoy a mix of rest, relaxation and restaurant options. Each villa has its own barbecue area – in addition to a private jacuzzi or swimming pool – ensuring maximum privacy and pampering. With regular flights to Faro from Dublin throughout the winter months, its proximity means booking an off-season getaway makes perfect sense.
