Dom Pedro Experience Centre Stage with Vilamoura Hailed as Peak of Golf Travel
The bustling town of Vilamoura is preparing for another busy year in 2023 as the evergreen Portuguese venue remains one of Europe’s most coveted destinations.
Home of the Dom Pedro Experience, the Algarve hotspot is a firm favourite among tourists and passionate golfers looking for a luxury break. The resort’s world-class golf offering is headlined by the Dom Pedro Hotels & Golf Collection, boasting five stunning courses within a 3km radius.
Vilamoura’s breath-taking natural vistas are tailor-made for the game, while the pleasant climate is a joy to play in throughout the year. Guests can enjoy easy international access from the nearby Faro Airport to the resort’s plentiful accommodation, including a trinity of luxuriant Dom Pedro hotels.
Away from the fairways, the coastal destination is a hive of activity, with plenty to see and do between rounds. The popular Marina de Vilamoura is the largest in Portugal and bisects two golden beaches overlooking the vast Atlantic Ocean. Nearby stands the Casino Vilamoura, a vibrant hub combining games, theatre, cuisine and comedy. A diverse range of bars and restaurants await throughout the area, ensuring that visitors can always find their perfect dining option.
Available until October 31, 2023, the Dom Pedro Experience presents an elegant way to experience everything on offer in Vilamoura. The per-person package includes accommodation with breakfast at a Dom Pedro hotel as well as one round of golf per day at Dom Pedro Millenium, Dom Pedro Pinhal or Dom Pedro Laguna. Green fees at the esteemed Dom Pedro Golf Victoria and Dom Pedro Old Course are available as part of a premium package, giving guests the opportunity to sample Vilamoura’s world-class golf for incredible value.
Luis Correia da Silva, CEO of Dom Pedro Golf, said: “We have three hotels in Vilamoura and five golf courses. We also have hotels in Lisbon and on the island of Madeira, but our focus is always here in Vilamoura.
“During all the different seasons, we always have great numbers of incoming tourists. We have a great offering – it’s affordable for them and they can play a different golf course every single day of the week, and we have some of the best golf courses in the Algarve.
“There is great variety on offer for all levels of player. Of course, people are always keen to play a DP World Tour venue and so the Victoria course is very popular.
“Meanwhile, the Old course has long been recognised as one of the very best courses in Europe and its mature, tree-lined fairways offer a very different test from the wetlands players face at Victoria.”
Pietro Dal Fabbro, CEO of Dom Pedro Hotels & Golf Collection, added: “We started the whole process of changing the mindset of golfers, turning golf into an event for everybody – something that people do to have fun.
“Vilamoura offers great qualities both on the course and off it, and that is why it remains one of Europe’s best destinations where visitors can rely on a first-class experience with great golf and accommodation options at Dom Pedro.”
The Dom Pedro Hotels & Golf Collection is at the heart of Vilamoura’s lively tourist scene, with its quintet of unique courses featuring the Dom Pedro Victoria, an acclaimed par-72 course known as the stage of the Portugal Masters. The Dom Pedro Old Course, Dom Pedro Millennium, Dom Pedro Pinhal and Dom Pedro Laguna complete one of the most well-rounded luxury golf offerings in Europe.
Over 600 rooms across three Dom Pedro hotels provide the ideal place for golfers to stay: Dom Pedro Vilamoura, Dom Pedro Marina and Dom Pedro Portobelo. Each luxurious hotel neighbours the marina and casino, with every Dom Pedro golf course just a short drive away.
