Lagos Golf and Wellness Retreat in Portugal

Tee off and treat yourself!

Are you looking for a luxurious getaway where you can relax at a spa resort with ocean vistas, play a few rounds of golf and enjoy incredible cuisine? Welcome to the Algarve region of Portugal, specifically the charming town of Lagos. Known for its stunning beaches, historic town center and excellent golf courses, Lagos also boasts one of the best wellness retreats in Europe – the Cascade Hotel & Wellness Resort.

Explore the perfect combination of golf and wellness in Portugal.

Close your eyes and create a vision… You’re standing on the tee at the Boa Visa Golf Resort in Lagos, the sun shining down on you with the ocean breeze blowing through your hair. Imagine a wonderfully scenic round of golf over the rolling hills. Life’s good! After a well-deserved lunch, you head back to the Cascade Hotel & Wellness Resort to let your body relax with a massage, or a swim in their long, meandering infinity pool near the ocean. Follow it up with cocktails on Cascade’s Gastropub veranda, before walking into town for some indulgent Portuguese cuisine. This is precisely what our Lagos Golf and Wellness Retreat offers you, your family, and friends. It’s one of the most affordable luxury experiences we’ve ever developed. Each day features a slightly different option.  

Let’s jump into it.

Lagos in November

Just as Mother Nature begins to open winter’s door; Lagos is still summer like with air temperatures between 65° and 70°F and ocean temperatures between 67° and 70°. The tourists are gone, and the town is adjusting to normal life again – which means you don’t have to fight crowds at the beach, resorts, or restaurants. This is designed to be a stress-free trip!

Arrive Refreshed with Uplift

My last trip to Europe went much easier than expected. I tried a new app to remediate jet lag and was so impressed with how well it worked, that we decided to partner with the company. Uplift upgrades your travel experience by eliminating Jet Lag and improving your travel performance, recovery, and wellbeing. Based on a lifetime of scientific work by Dr. Charles Krebs, the Uplift mobile app guides you to reset your body clock to your new time zone, neutralizing the effects of Jet Lag that can last for days and ruin your vacation or business meeting.

Luxury Accommodations

Perched above the stunning natural beauty of the Portuguese Atlantic coast, the Cascade Hotel & Wellness Resort in Lagos is a true paradise for travelers seeking both luxury and relaxation. With its world-class spa, panoramic ocean views, and opulent guest accommodations, this resort offers a holistic approach to wellness that incorporates organic therapies, gourmet cuisine, and a range of recreational activities. From the tranquil infinity pool to the state-of-the-art fitness center and tennis courts, every detail has been thoughtfully curated to enhance the overall well-being of its guests. With pristine beaches nearby, lush gardens, and exquisite cuisine, the Cascade Hotel & Wellness Resort offers a Lagos Golf experience like no other.

The uglier a man’s legs are, the better he plays golf. It’s almost a law.

Boa Vista Golf Resort

The Boa Vista Golf Course is a golfer’s dream destination. This exclusive 18-hole course offers an unforgettable golfing experience, with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and the shimmering blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The course is designed to challenge even the most experienced players, with varying elevations and tricky bunkers strategically placed throughout. Boa Vista’s first-class facilities include a well-stocked pro shop and a driving range where golfers can warm up before they play. After a round, relax in the elegant clubhouse, which offers delicious local cuisine and refreshing drinks.

Espiche Golf Resort

Nestled in the lush landscape of coastal Lagos, the Espiche Golf Course is a true golfer’s paradise. Designed by renowned architect Peter Sauerman, this 18-hole championship course spans over 6,000 meters and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and valleys. The course itself is a testament to sustainable and responsible golfing, as it was built with the aim of preserving the natural beauty and ecological balance of the area. Featuring a challenging yet rewarding layout, the Espiche Golf Course is perfect for both experienced golfers and those looking to improve their game. With its stunning setting, impeccable design, and commitment to sustainability, this course is a must-visit for anyone seeking an unforgettable Lagos Golf experience.

After a good round of golf, get a massage. After a bad round of golf, reach for a cocktail!  

Wellness and Spa

The Cascade Hotel & Wellness Resort offers both. The elegant hotel and spa facility offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area. The on-site full-service spa offers rejuvenating facials, massages, aromatherapy, and moisturizing treatments that focuses on the organic and holistic well-being of each guest. The facility also offers a luxurious hydrotherapy circuit, complete with a sauna, Turkish bath, and hot tub. Utilized throughout the year by Europe’s top professional soccer teams, the property also includes a state-of-the-art gym and yoga center.

Why are Portuguese so happy? Their cuisine is always fresh and farm-to-table.

Culinary Indulgence

Beyond the golfing, spa days, and fun in the sun is the cherry on top: the gourmet dining experiences you’ll enjoy on this Lagos Golf Retreat. On property are three incredible restaurants to experience. SENSES Restaurant offers fine dining with a seasonal menu and stunning oceanic views, while Mundi Restaurant offers a more casual yet equally delectable culinary experience – including an “out of this world” breakfast buffet. (Easy on the Mimosa’s, we have golf in an hour!) Last but not least, the Gastropub features casual fare – including fresh seafood brought in daily. Most evenings, we will walk into downtown Lagos, where we can find Portuguese seafood, sushi, Indian, Italian, Thai and grill restaurants galore. There are options for everyone!

Historical Town

Lagos, Portugal, located at the Algarve region, has a wealth of things to do off the retreat. The town is rich in history and architecture, with several historical sites such as the Santo Antonio Complex and Lagos castle. The beaches in Lagos are postcard-perfect, and the vintage cobblestone streets lined with sidewalk cafes and shops make for a fantastic stroll. Lagos’ nightlife is also vibrant, bustling with wine bars, brew pubs, and night clubs. Additional activities during the week include hiking, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, or just a causal walk along the beach.

Are you ready to embark on your incredible week of Lagos golf and wellness? The entire week includes:

7 nights lodging and gourmet breakfasts
A dinner at SENSES Restaurant
2 massages
4 rounds of golf
1 day of kayaking or SUP on the ocean
Cocktail reception
Transportation from Faro Airport and return

Total Price? Only $3,950 per person double occupancy!

The price is ridiculous for a 5-Star Resort and all the trimmings! We challenge you to find another location that can match the luxury accommodations, fantastic golf courses, top-notch dining, historical city, and unmatched wellness facilities. This is an experience that you won’t soon forget.

So, what are you waiting for?
