The Bela Vista Hotel & Spa is an intimate and luxurious hotel as well as a historical property - an authentic experience in the Algarve region of Portugal. This is a true boutique hotel situated right on the beach of Praia da Rocha. A warm place combining luxurious, modern comfort with traditional standards of hospitality, where hotel guests feel welcomed and valued.
The hotel has recently undergone a renovation directed by one Portugal's leading interior design firms: Graca Viterbo. You will notice amazing interiors in terms of light, space, texture, culture and memory.
Why Choose Bela Vista Hotel & Spa
Located on the stunning Praia da Rocha beach in Portimao, the Hotel Bela-Vista can be reached from Faro International Airport in around 1 hour, or from Lisbon Airport in about 2 hours 30 minutes. Car rental offices are available at both airports. Bela Vista Hotel & Spa is located on a rocky outcrop above the beach, providing a secluded environment that allows guests to detach themselves from Praia da Rocha’s activity when required, and access when desired.
