W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary hotel brands is set to unveil the highly-anticipated W Algarve in Spring this year. Located on the sun-drenched shores of the Algarve, where jagged cliffs merge with crystal clear waters and all-year sunny climes, the 134-guestroom hotel, and 83 Residences, will bring the brand’s distinctive energy to Portugal for the first time. With an intriguing design spearheaded by AB Concept, the hotel will entwine the Algarve’s striking natural scenery and rich Portuguese history with the brand’s signature style.
The destination’s mesmerising curved Benagil caves inspired the flowing design of the hotel’s interior spaces and the colour palette of blues, aquamarines and turquoise nod to the azure sky and surrounding Atlantic Ocean. From fabrics and surfaces to tempting textures, each detail of the hotel is intentional. Guests will discover expertly curated art and spectacular lighting all telling the story of local traditions and heritage – from ceramics, mosaic and crochet to Moorish costume, fishing livelihoods and the destination’s surf culture. “We love to create expressive designs for both experience and memory, creating both impactful first encounters and lasting impressions. We are delighted to be working with W Hotels Worldwide to bring our joint vision of W Algarve to life, combining the cultural nuances and local traditions of this beautiful region of Portugal with W Hotels’ inimitable flair for thoughtful, intriguing and imaginative design across its hotel and residences.” Said Ed Ng of AB Concept.
