longevity wellness resort

longevity wellness resort algarve

Nestled away in the luscious, green Monchique mountains in the south of Portugal, award-winning Longevity Wellness Resort offers some fantastic programmes for wellness, stress, weight management and anti-ageing. Voted Tatler’s ‘most life changing spa 2013’.

Note:  The property has been sold and re-opened in 2016 as Monchique Resort & Spa

The team at Longevity have found a new home on the coast.  See: Longevity at Vilalara

Exceptional facilities are around every corner along with a team of highly skilled personal trainers, therapists and medical experts to guide you through your programme.  Aptly named a ‘medical spa’, you’ll begin your stay with various consultations and a ‘bio-physical’ examination that will reveal what your body is really calling out for. 

Cleansing your body from the inside out is the focal theme.  You’ll sample some exceptional and at the same time, healthy cuisine; enjoy fantastic hikes around the surrounding mountains along with fitness activities to choose from on-site, including yoga and pilates.

All rooms are light, modern and spacious suites – each with a balcony, separate living area and marble bathrooms.  Deeps reds and candles create an inviting spa area with steam room, sauna and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.  Enjoy a massage, facial or body scrub in one of the treatment rooms, to complement the type of programme you’re on.

For those wanting to take some time out under expert medical supervision while enjoying fitness activities, a superb spa and delicious cuisine (and all with a fantastically personal service!) then hop over to Portugal's Algarve and visit Longevity for some well-earned R&R.  A great location for numerous excellent golf courses too!
