Minor Hotels brand Tivoli Hotels & Resorts reopened the Tivoli Lagos Algarve Hotel in South Portugal following an extensive five-month renovation.
Tivoli invested €4.6 million into the refurbishment of the hotel. Portuguese interior designer Sofia Sardo designed the project at the property in the Algarve's fishing village of Lagos near the city center, the marina and the beach Meia Praia.
The firm redecorated the hotel's 205 guestrooms and suites across seven buildings. Tivoli also added five restaurants and a bar to the property as part of the renovations.
"This project reinforces the dedication of Tivoli Hotels & Resorts to continue setting the highest standard of service on an international level, particularly in the competitive Algarve market,” João Jesus, area director of sales and marketing for the Algarve region at Tivoli, said in a statement.
The renovations follow the refurbishment of the Tivoli Coimbra in the center of Portugal completed in June 2108. Tivoli updated the hotel's 100 guestrooms, suites, five meeting rooms and public areas. The company also converted the Tivoli Caffèe into the Simone Coffee Shop.
The investment follows Minor Hotels’ plans to open its first Tivoli hotel in Évora, Portugal. The Tivoli Évora Ecoresort, which currently operates as the Ecorkhotel, Évora-Suites & Spas, is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2018. The existing 56-room hotel will undergo a renovation to add a new villa with nine guestrooms and a private outdoor swimming pool.
The new resort will boost Tivoli’s portfolio of 11 hotels and resorts in Portugal and Brazil. An additional two hotels are in the pipeline for the Middle East in Qatar: Al Najada Doha Hotel by Tivoli and Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli.
Tivoli Al Najada Doha Hotel is in the final stages of development in the city center. The five-story property will have 151 guestrooms and suites once construction is complete in 2018. The second upcoming hotel, the 101-room Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar, is being developed within two former heritage houses. The property is in the seaside district of Souq Al Wakra near central Doha and Hamad International Airport.
