When the sea is a shimmering turquoise, the sky is azure, the coastline is rocky, and the sandy beaches are warm and soft - you know you've arrived in the Algarve, the southernmost point of Portugal. That little slice of heaven where you just can't help but live life to the full. Here, on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach lies the 5-star Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa. As a La Biosthétique partner, and the only one in the Algarve, the hotel pampers its guests with selected products.
The Vila Vita Parc belongs to the prestigious "Leading Hotels of the World" group. The spacious hotel complex is perched high above the cliffs and is surrounded by beautiful, sub-tropical gardens. It was built in the typical Moorish style and almost every nook gives guests a breath-taking view of the Atlantic, the private beach and the charming village of Armaçao de Pêra that's just a few minutes' walk away. Soothe your soul in one of the three outdoor pools, on the terrace or on a bed under the clear sky. Enjoy a glass of wine from the in-house wine cellar, or feast to your heart's desire in one of the ten restaurants serving a variety of cuisines from Mediterranean to Japanese - one even has two Michelin stars.
"Bom dia" is Portuguese for "Good morning". And that's guaranteed here. Whether you start your day in one of the elegant rooms, or the modern suites with a roof terrace and walk-in wardrobe. Those who prefer something more secluded can enjoy the fantastic view from one of the detached luxury villas, each with its own pool and garden.
Individuality is at the heart of every treatment at the luxurious Vila Vita Vital Spa. Each treatment is tailored to the guest's personal needs. From moisturising facials to soothing massages, wellness therapies and beauty treatments.
An absolute must on a relaxing holiday at the Vila Vita Parc is a visit to the newly renovated and exquisitely furnished Hair & Nail Spa salon. Customers are given personalised treatments using the comprehensive range of hair care and styling products from La Biosthétique. Be it a new haircut or colour, or a deep treatment with La Biosthétique products. Natural brown hair or coloured hair receives a particularly gentle cleansing using the Protection Couleur Shampoo Chocolate. The shampoo helps to protect the hair from losing its colour intensity and moisture and gives it a silky and warm tone. Protection Couleur Conditionneur Chocolate .24 is a particularly intensive care. Long Hair Detangling Spa Spray smooths the hair's structure after washing and makes tangled hair a thing of the past and lets your hair shine.
You can also look forward to a perfect manicure. It starts with the removal of all traces of nail polish with the Nail Enamel Remover and finishes with a coat of new, fresh summer colour.
To round off the pampering experience, Vila Vita Parc also offers a make-up service using the high-quality products from the La Biosthétique make-up range. Bring the holiday mood to your lips with a dash of lipstick in colours such as "Lovely Rose", "Shiny Peach" or "Paradise Pink".
And for those who would like an exceptional look for a special evening in the Vila Vita Parc hotel, the La Biosthétique Salon is on hand to help.
When it comes to protecting your skin and hair from the sun, the salon is also well-equipped with the entire Soleil series from La Biosthétique with creams and sprays from SPF 6 to 50, as well as aftersun products.
Vila Vita Parc is famous for its holistic approach and harmonising the mind, body and soul. Naturally, this also includes exercise.

There are also 5 tennis courts, a mini golf course, a volleyball and badminton court and even a golf centre on site. The hotel also has a private yacht for trips to enjoy the fresh sea air.
