Once a private vacation villa, the residence has been refurbished with an exquisite, Moorish feel. Vila Joya’s unique interior style is a mixture of the exotic and the familiar. Occident meets Orient, and the effect is one of total elegance.
The play of light and color on the Vila’s grounds is legendary. Its Mediterranean gardens are saturated in a spectrum of cool greens, while the pale ambers of the beach meet the heady blue of the Atlantic. With every shift of light throughout the day, Vila Joya presents itself anew, a visual and aromatic symphony of land and sea.
Because Vila Joya sits in an elevated position on the coast, the spectacular land- and seascape can be savored from a variety of wonderful vantage points: breakfast on the terrace, cocktails at sunset at the bar, or dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant. Each suite or room is also positioned in a way to take full advantage of its natural surroundings.
With dedicated service guaranteed, this is the place to enjoy the best the Algarve has to offer, from the radiant sunshine and endless beaches and private bays to the best golf courses in the world.
With the only two Michelin Star restaurant in Portugal, Vila Joya offers an exclusive and intimate fine dining experience overlooking the Algarve coast. Award-winning chef Dieter Koschina cooks with creativity and passion serving up exquisite and delicious food with finesse.
