Blog of the best, this summer and fall

Happy Birthday to:

Conrad Algarve 
One year old in September, a much needed lifeline and hub of activity for Quinta do Lago, the Golden Triangle and the Algarve overall.

Dunas Douradas Beach Club
One of Algarve’s few truly beach-front resorts, designed, built and run to high standards for clients who demand only the best. Parabéns for having reached the tender age of 5 years in October and having given so much satisfaction to so many, from owners to holiday makers.

Hilton Vilamoura 
5 years old in last September, the first five star worldwide hotel brand to open in the Algarve ending a dead period of many years before.  A most valuable addition all round and especially to Vilamoura.

…and well done to;

Sheraton Algarve Pine Cliffs Resort
For Algarve’s biggest and best Summer Gala and choice or artist NE-YO, a rising star and a gentleman of the world music industry.

Vila Vita Parc
On the total re-design and re-build of its very exclusive ocean front villas, an outstandingly unique offer, from an outstandingly unique hotel.

‘Experiences’ – Gourmet & Spa, designed for residents in the Golden Triangle

The new landmark hotel brand in Portugal, part of the Hilton Group, Conrad Algarve in Quinta do Lago, had its soft opening in September 2012 and more recently its grand opening ceremony. The brand motto is The luxury of being yourself and to this end has been promoting the hotel and its outlets to local residents and regular visitors to the area through ‘Experiences,’ an online and print journal highlighting delights such as the Michelin-starred chef-inspired offer at Gusto by Heinz Beck, the Sunday BBQ Brunches in the Barbecue Theatre near the infinity pool and the relaxation and revitalisation of Conrad SPA. Atelier do Sul Design Consultants created the concept already experienced by many! See the next 3 months here. Conrad Algarve has brought a very needy breath of fresh air to the area and another important upmarket brand to the Algarve!

Digital Design for Food & Fun @Hilton Vilamoura

Hilton Vilamoura, now a well established haunt for both tourists and Portuguese nationals, was the first resort hotel of the Worldwide Hilton Group to open in Portugal, inaugurated in 2007 and very recently joined by its sister luxury brand Conrad Algarve, at Quinta do Lago. With excellent restaurants, bars and beach facilities, Hilton Vilamoura is also reaching out to regular local visitors and residents alike in the Vilamoura and surrounding areas, to let them know about their outlets and special events that can be enjoyed by all. Atelier do Sul Design Consultants were asked to design the online communications, distributed by way of the internet and on screens within the resort itself replacing traditional printed materials following one of Hilton’s mottos to become a paperless business.
