The famous Vila Joya Boutique Hotel is located at a premium location along the Algarve coast. Boasting dramatic views on the ocean and the hills nearby, Vila Joya is a place appreciated by all. Once a private villa, the managing Jung family spent more than 25 years transforming the property into one of the best and most luxurious hotels in Portugal.
Vila Joya is an intimate and exclusive boutique hotel, boasting only 21 rooms and suites, most of them located in the main building. It is also in this building that one can find the famous Vila Joya restaurant, where chef Dieter Koschina has been cooking for over 25 years and where he created one of the best restaurants in Portugal. Good food has always been important for the Jung family, so it comes as no surprise that they installed a high-end gourmet restaurant in their boutique hotel. For more information about this restaurant, please consult our Restaurant section. Breakfast is also served in the restaurant and on the outdoor terrace. The breathtaking views on the Algarve coast and the ocean are so unique that one could forget time. Intimacy is very important at this hotel and all guests are welcomed as family members. “Welcome to paradise” is a phrase you will certainly hear at Vila Joya, and it is easy to understand why.
The rooms at Vila Joya are very spacious and beautifully decorated with a mix of Portuguese and Moorish design. They are extremely luxurious and feature all modern amenities. The views from the rooms are stunning and most of them also feature a private balcony or terrace.
The spa at Vila Joya is one of the main assets of the hotel and features an inside and outside area. From the Jacuzzi, the outdoor pool and the big outdoor rain shower, guests enjoy dramatic views on the Atlantic Ocean. Not an easy place to leave.
Many of the guests come back every year, so make sure to book ahead.
