The Farol Design Hotel is a masterpiece of Portuguese palatial architecture, originally built in 1890 for the Count of Cabral. The 33 guestrooms are "dressed" by acclaimed Portuguese fashion designers and sumptous accents punctuate the ever-so-cool black and white interiors, hinting at the building's regal history. The pool deck and salt water pool is a restful sanctuary: directly on top of the ocean it provides a space to relax on exquisite deck chairs that give the distinct impression of floating on water. Endless ocean views also amaze with waves occasionally crashing onto the pool deck; the entire structure has been designed to blur the boundaries between the building and its stunning natural surroundings.

Visitors can enjoy the hydro-massage bathtubs in each of the rooms, a creative house cocktail at the On the Rocks bar or head to The Mix restaurant, which spreads over three distinct dining areas, extending towards the sandy beach. Bliss is guaranteed.

As with the rest of the hotel, when you stay at the penthouse, you can expect nothing less than luxury. The services available are: gym, spa, private chef, a round the clock butler and an unobstructed view over the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. You will be speechless.
