Changes are afoot at the popular Onyria Palmares Beach & Golf Resort as plans have been announced to open a new five-star boutique hotel in spring 2016.

Set to be named ‘The Onyria Palmares Beach House Hotel’, it will feature 18 rooms and two suites, with all rooms offering 180-degree views to the Bay of Lagos and beds facing the windows so guests can wake up looking towards the Meia-Praia beach.

The new hotel will be the first in the resort and will also overlook both the 18th green and the practice area, while the planning license allows for another 152 hotel rooms to be built in stages.

“It will be the perfect vacation spot for golfers” – Antonio Pinto Coelho

Antonio Pinto Coelho, the resort’s operations general director, believes the new hotel will be among the finest of its kind In Lagos.

He said: “The description ‘beach house’ comes from the location and view and the home comforts of the service level, whether guests are in the privacy of their rooms, in the bar, restaurant or in the swimming pool.



“It will be the perfect vacation spot for golfers as, not only does it afford simple, stress-free access to 27 holes of award-winning golf, it also overlooks some of the layout’s links style holes, described by the course designer, Robert Trent Jones Jnr, as a ‘warmer Scotland’.”

Onyria Palmares (pictured) features three loops of nine holes – the Alvor, Lagos and Praia courses – each offering a variety of challenges to golfers of all abilities.
