On the seafront in the Algarve’s Sagres, the Memmo Baleeira is an all-white haven of modern comfort, and a member of Design Hotels (which means it’s an independent outfit and an aesthetic original).
Wow factor: The zen-like tranquility of the property’s clean colour scheme means you’re powerless to resist relaxation.
Surrounded by the royal-blue sea and rugged cliffs of Baleeira harbour, even the views are soothing, and an on-site surf school means you can benefit from local knowledge when seeking out the area’s best surf beaches. (Note that winter swells are best around Sagres.)
The hotel works hard to educate guests about the wealth of outdoor pursuits on the doorstep, encouraging you not to laze around the pool all day.
Rooms: Floor-to-ceiling corner windows help you soak up the setting; beds are sinfully soft.
Bill please: Special offers from about £50pn; standard rates from £87pn.
