Ombria Resort will put sustainability on the map
Portugal’s Ombria Resort in the Algarve is set to raise the bar as the leader in a new generation of low-density resort development with sustainability at the heart of its luxury resort concept.
Speaking to the Forbes magazine, the CEO of Ombria Julio Delgado says that the 150 hectare development will protect the environment and support nature in the inner Algarve region.
The first phase of the Ombria development includes a five-star hotel, Viceroy at Ombria Resort which will feature 76 luxury guest rooms and suites in addition to 65 branded residences.
Slated to open in 2020, the concept is to create an Eco-friendly framework and foundation that focuses on the use of renewable solar and geothermal energies, innovative materials, environmental certification and social responsibility respecting the environment, local heritage and community.
Alongside the Viceroy Hotel & Residences, Ombria Resort will include the Alcedo Villas – 12 individual detached homes — and the Oriole Village which will include 83 tourist apartments, townhouses and villas, with a design inspired by a traditional Barrocal village, an 18-hole golf course and clubhouse.
There will be a wide range of activities on offer designed to provide authentic guest experiences and encouraging exploration of the region which has stunning landscapes, waterfalls, picture postcard villages and timeless traditions.
“Branded residences are no longer just about services and bricks and mortar, but also about lifestyle and security of investment, that homeowners are buying into.
“The 24/7 nature of modern life and work is also increasing demand for branded residences, in particular with high-net worth segments seeking a high level of service and the peace of mind that their property is being well looked after” says Julio Delgado.
