JJW’s Dona Filipa Hotel Completes Second Phase of Renovations

Dona Filipa Hotel

Welcoming guests, golfers and dignitaries for over 50 years, the five-star Dona Filipa has recently completed the second-phase of a multi-million pound refurbishment. The work sees the leading Algarve hotel blend modern design with classic Portuguese style… as well as incorporating important elements of its surroundings into an innovative new look.

The recently launched Kamal Restaurant has been fashioned and decorated to reflect the resort’s integral relationship with the sea. Decked out in stunning blues and elegant soft furnishings, the restaurant offers a range of exceptional Mediterranean and international cuisine that draw upon Portugal’s rich trading history and the many exotic ingredients brought back to the country during the golden age of discovery. Overlooking the ocean, Kamal is clad with expansive glass doors that run along its full length, and open out the entire room onto the newly constructed pool area.

Beyond the swimming pool, travellers can rest and relax in acres of immaculate grounds, at al fresco dining tables, and on the intricately built decking and outdoor lounge, which sits beside a distinguished bar where cocktails are served late into the night.

Leading up to this work, Dona Filipa Hotel has also renovated the majority of its 154 rooms, including its entire compliment of luxury suites… as well as all public areas, notably the new Duques Lounge Bar, winter garden and lobby.
