Love at First Sight

Sitting amongst the luscious greenery of the surrounding countryside, Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa is cool and contemporary on the outside and lavish and luxurious on the inside. Perfectly situated in the Serra Monchique, you have the peace and tranquillity of a classic countryside property, but with a sun-drenched climate and gorgeous views of the Algarve coast. Discover an indulgent retreat in an idyllic setting, where glamour and sophistication are ways of life.


Macdonald Monchique is the perfect place to relax and reconnect with your loved one. The serenity of this romantic resort sets the scene for sitting back and enjoying the finer things in life, and the serene and sensual spa offers an array of indulgent treatments to enjoy with your beloved. Sensorial experiences include a Turkish bath, a sauna, a foot spa, an ice fountain, a hydrodynamic heated pool and rain showers. A wide range of couple's therapies are also available, and afterwards you can unwind in the Zen Garden, the Spa Lounge or the Deep Relaxation Room.

Your Stay

The classic suites are clean and contemporary, with elegant minimalism and neutral décor that really enhances the feeling of calm and serenity. King-sized beds are plush and comfortable, and generous living areas and dining rooms add to the air of exclusivity. En-suite bathrooms are sleek and modern, with baths big enough for two, and a second bathroom includes an indulgent walk-in shower. The private terraces and balconies are the icing on the cake, offering spectacular views over the Monchique Mountain.

What to Do

The activities and experiences on offer at Macdonald Monchique all inspire a feeling of harmony in your mind, body and soul. For fitness fanatics, there’s everything from high-intensity workout classes to the more gentle yoga and pilates - there’s even archery, for those wanting to dabble in a bit of medieval weaponry! The local trails surrounding the resort will sweep you up in its natural beauty, with the mountainside flora, fauna and exotic birds, unique to the region. Close by you’ll find the Caldas de Monchique, a picturesque and cosy village, home to the Fonte dos Amores - the beautiful Lovers’ Fountain.

The Food of Love

The delightful village of Monchique is located between Picota and Foia, and this lovely location means that you’re surrounded by charming little cafés and restaurants at every turn, as well as a refined restaurant back at the hotel. For more intimate dining, a variety of options are available for couples. Take a romantic picnic down to the shore, enjoy a champagne breakfast in bed, or indulge in a candlelit dinner for two, underneath the twinkling night sky.
