When Do You Want To Go?

The Vila da Santa Hotel Boutique & Spa is known for as much for its unique architecture as it is for its enviable beachfront location. Situated on Praia dos Ossos Beach, guests return again and again for the relaxing spa treatments, buzzy bar, and heated swimming pool (a rarity in this region).

Brigitte Bardot spent months here in 1964, and ever since she secreted herself away with her local lover curious visitors have been flocking to these beaches to find out why. In fact, this hotel is located just 500 metres away from the beach that has taken her name and the Orla Bardot (Bardot Boulevard) that snakes past the seafront. Enjoy walks along the promenade, and spend the afternoon taking in the sun at the Ossos Park. The park is adjacent to Sant’Ana church, an authentic heritage site dating to 1743.

Each of the rooms at the Vila da Santa Hotel Boutique & Spa comes equipped with a flat-screen TV, satellite channels, and complimentary robes and toiletries so that you can truly rest and unwind. The property is decorated throughout with art pieces that have been collected by the hotel’s owners on their extensive travels across the globe, adding an extra touch of sophistication to your stay. Planning a special event? The on-site ‘Secret House’ is a stunning setting for a wedding or celebration of any kind.
