Longevity Wellness Resort Monchique Reviews

Pure Luxury with the added bonus of being good for you!!!! Mar 06, 2011
To start, I think I'd better give you a clue into what this hotel's concept is all about. On their website it states.....

"The first Medical Spa in a resort environment offering an integrated approach in Preventive Medicine and Ageing Management, in an exclusive partnership, for Portugal, with La Clinique de Paris/ Dr. Claude Chauchard - one of the world's leading experts with over 30 years of experience".

So, you can imagine what I originally thought. Preventive Medicine and Ageing Management? Is this for real?

Well I kid you not.... the whole ethos behind this hotel is one of complete relaxation, detoxification and well being. With this being the case, and due to my very stressful job, I thought to myself.... "I'll have a bit of this please"!!!

I decided to spend 7 nights in this unbelievably beautiful resort, tucked away in the breath taking mountains of Monchique, located in the Algarve. The added bonus is that it is still only 20 minutes by car to the beach, so you get te best of both worlds.

As you may know, it is binking cold in the UK at the moment and so I as knocked back by how warm the weather was in mid February. The floral aroma of Spring was in the air and I was instantly in utopia!

On entering the resort, I was taken back by the modern architecture, the ambient atmosphere and the beauty of the resort. Then, when I entered my mountain facing suite, I was even more impressd by the total luxurt I had just inherited for my week.

I decided to enroll on a weeks personal training course, making sure I kept to a healthy diet, which I managed to do due to having an environment around me that made it easier to achieve. This meant that I trained daily in the well equiped gym; hit the sauna and pool each day; and ate very healthy breakfasts to start the day off in good shape.

For people that wanted spa treatments.... well.... you have to see the treatment menu to believe it! Everything from massage to aromatic body treatments are there to enjoy!

There are two main restaraunts, both of which are very nice, with mainly healthy options, although I was pretty gob smacked to see a bottle of water called "Bling" on sale for £100 a pop!

So.... my marks out of five for this place? Have to give it the full five stars! The place is just heavenly, both in terms of the resort, the staff and the location. I left feelng fully refreshed!

My recomendations if you fancy going? Take advantage of a hire car as there is also loads to see in the area. I also enjoyed going on the morning walks at the resort, as you get to meet the staff and sample the true flavour of the local area.
