Viceroy Hotel Group entering Europe with Portugal property

Viceroy Hotel Group is coming to Europe. The company has announced the launch of Viceroy Algarve at Quinta da Ombria, in Portugal, set to debut in 2017. The hotel will have 147 rooms and 99 residential units. It will be designed by WATG.

The property will offer easy access to the region's beaches and will feature seven dining venues, two outdoor swimming pools, an 18-hole golf course, spa with 10 treatment rooms and over 6,000 square feet of cross-functional event and meeting space.

"We are truly delighted to bring Viceroy's ethos, ideology, and vibe to Europe," said Viceroy CEO, Bill Walshe. "Authenticity, individuality and a sense of place are critical components in our commitment to create life-long memories for our guests, rewarding careers for our colleagues, and a positive legacy for the community of Quinta da Ombria."

Ville Tallbacka, CEO Quinta da Ombria, commented that "Viceroy at Quinta da Ombria will be a new and unrivaled concept in the Algarve that will take advantage of its natural, un-spoilt surroundings and beauty - a haven of peace whilst offering a great number of activities for all age groups. Viceroy's impeccable track record and ability to produce highly individual, luxury properties was decisive to appoint Viceroy Hotels & Resorts to manage the operation."
