Hotel Martinhal

A stay at Hotel Martinhal is an invitation to discover Portugal’s unspoiled western Algarve.
Carefully positioned within the grounds of Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel, this luxury beachfront hotel – the first five-star property in the Sagres region – sits comfortably between the land and the sea, with a protected natural park as its neighbour.
The architecture combines a natural simplicity with contemporary style to create a building that appears organic, as if born to Nature. The 37 rooms, including two duplex Beach Suites, all have private balconies or terraces that afford impressive ocean views.
The hotel’s O Terraço restaurant serves a full buffet breakfast and offers a tempting dinner menu based on Portuguese and seasonal produce, prepared with a modern flourish. Hotel guests have full access to all the other resort facilities.
Children and babies are completely welcome at Hotel Martinhal and at O Terraço restaurant as well.

Terrace Rooms

Terrace Rooms at Hotel Martinhal are situated within the main building and surrounded by private gardens. The architecture draws on the austere beauty of the unspoiled western Algarve, a design signature that’s effortlessly carried through to the living spaces. The use by British furniture and interiors designer Michael Sodeau of natural materials like timber, cork and wicker to furnish the rooms lend the accommodation a minimalist, organic quality that is as appealing as it is innovative.
Likewise, the muted pastel tones used to decorate the interior create a wonderfully mellow atmosphere that is easy on the mind, and on the soul. Each en-suite room has its own private wood deck terrace and an area of lawn where guests can lounge and soak in the sun and memorable sea views.

Beach Rooms

Hotel Martinhal Beach Rooms are arranged in clusters of four near the beach and are just a short walk from the main building.
Positioned to take full advantage of an outstanding coastal panorama, these rooms are flat roofed and wrapped entirely in natural timber to blend effortlessly into the landscape.
Inside, the colour palette is deliberately subdued and living spaces fashionably understated: the mood is cool and refined.
Natural wood, stone, cork and other locally sourced materials have been employed by British furniture and interiors designer Michael Sodeau to decorate the interior. The impression is one of function and continuity.
Rooms open on to private balconies or terraces where glorious ocean views and sunsets can be fully appreciated.

Beach Suites

The Beach Suites at Hotel Martinhal number just two and are visually stunning in their appearance.
Clad in natural timber and positioned overlooking the ocean, the Suites incorporate loft-style double height living spaces, with the open-plan bedroom situated on the mezzanine level. Outside, a private veranda has been carefully orientated to take advantage of the setting sun.
Floorspace is deceptively generous, and the enormous floor-to-ceiling bay windows greatly enhance the sense of proportion. A private ground floor terrace extends on to a modest lawn.
A soft pastel colour scheme complements the eco-friendly materials and fibres that British furniture and interiors designer Michael Sodeau has used to furnish the rooms, and the mood is one of refinement and understated luxury.
The Beach Suites interconnect with the adjacent Beach Room – perfect for families with older children. The design, however, still allows for privacy without losing the feeling of continuity.
