‘Ultra-Luxurious, Timeless Elegance’

Perched above the Atlantic Ocean and set in 54 acres of sub-tropical gardens the distinctive Moorish architecture of VILA VITA Parc is instantly noticeable. The coastline is characteristically rocky with large sandy beaches onto which aquamarine waters lap gracefully. All rooms, suites and villas overlook this picture-postcard scene of ocean and gardens as well as providing first class services and features. Accommodation, restaurants and other facilities are spread throughout the gardens in low rise villas and one large main building creating a village feel to the whole property; there are pleasant walkways to access all areas. They have recently launched Armacao Beach Club which features three beachside restaurants, each with a different theme.
