A pioneer in setting the trend for luxury lifestyle destinations, Quinta do Lago has taken innovation to new heights this summer after unveiling an unrivalled calendar of more than 500 events and activities, including a proposal to enjoy a new ‘Love Brunch’ and ‘Dinner in the Sky’ – the world’s most extravagant meal.
Delivering a vibrant atmosphere in the tranquil setting of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, the famous Algarve venue is renowned as Europe’s foremost golf and lifestyle resort and has created an exclusive series of social and family events to appeal to everyone, from children and active couples to beach lovers and gourmet enthusiasts.
For the first time in the Algarve, a new concept of brunch is available, bringing international DJs to the setting of Quinta do Lago’s new Bovino Steakhouse and Pool Bar. Every Sunday, guests can enjoy a luxurious brunch in a party atmosphere similar to that enjoyed by the likes of London, Paris, New York, Barcelona and Cape Town.
Gourmet lovers will also be able to enjoy Quinta do Lago’s lake and the Ria Formosa from 180 feet in the air with a one-off ‘Dinner in the Sky’, while the resort’s beach will see a new weekly event with the Koko Beach parties every Saturday extending the beach experience until 9pm with DJs and cocktails to make the most of the Algarvian sunset.
Taking place in the space of just 90 days from now until September, the summer calendar features an array of different luxury sports and leisure experiences across the resort’s extensive facilities, which include a choice of 10 exclusive bars and restaurants, three championship golf courses and Europe’s only Paul McGinley Golf Academy.
Popular events such as Quinta do Lago’s ‘Picnics in the Park’ have become a ritual in recent years for families eager not to miss out on the tasty picnic baskets, live music and children’s entertainment and activities in the relaxed atmosphere of the driving range. Held every Friday until August 26, the evenings have been given a fresh look this summer and will feature a different theme each week, with exceptional surprises in store.
Highlights for younger audiences include kids’ entertainment at Koko Lane and Bovino Steakhouse, mini golf activities (including a special ‘night challenge’ on August 12) and golf camps at the Paul McGinley Academy, as well as ‘Sunday Fun Golf’ for budding young golfers, sandcastle competitions and ‘Movies in the Park’, with a giant 3D outdoor screen on the driving range.
For adults, the menu has plenty of surprises too, including sunset parties at The Shack; live music every Tuesday at Casa do Lago and Sunday at The Shack; Full Moon parties (July 21 and August 18) at The Shack and jazz every Thursday at the recently-reopened Casa Velha restaurant.
In addition, Quinta do Lago’s Active Q gym and open-air studio are offering a full schedule of classes throughout the summer, as well as personal training sessions and, new for 2016, powerwalking beach boot camps.
And the watersports centre, which boasts an exclusive spot within the Ria Formosa, provides youngsters with the opportunity to try an array of activities including sailing, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing and surf camps.
Excelling for more than four decades, Quinta do Lago has been reinvented to provide the most vibrant and unique luxury lifestyle experience to be found anywhere in Europe, offering something to suit every taste and interest while, at the same time, staying faithful to the resort’s illustrious history.
The official winter training base for England Golf’s elite squads and situated just 15 minutes from Faro airport, Quinta do Lago’s three championship courses – the revamped North Course, South Course and Laranjal – are matched by outstanding practice facilities including Europe’s only Paul McGinley Golf Academy and the only TaylorMade Performance Center in Southern Europe.
Away from the fairways, extensive leisure facilities guarantee there is plenty to keep everyone occupied, with events, tennis, cycling and watersports just some of the activities available.
