Following the start of construction in December last year of its 5-star Viceroy hotel and first phase properties, Ombria Resort, the newest luxury resort & real estate development in the heart of the Algarve, is delighted to report on an exciting year ahead with the launch of the off-plan sales of its Viceroy Residences and the Alcedo Villas.

Ombria Resort, which also includes an 18-hole golf course that was completed last year, is spread over 150 hectares of serene, secluded and natural landscape in the inner Algarve, whilst being just 20 Kms from Faro’s airport and several stunning beaches and just 8 kilometres north of the charming town of Loulé.

Ombria Resort is being built as a new, exclusive, one-of-a-kind sustainable development that works to preserve and contribute to the welfare of an unspoiled region. Sustainability and environmental protection are key factors that have been built into each stage of the extremely low-density resort. Through the use of bioclimatic architectural principles as well as renewable solar and geothermal energies, all buildings are considered “smart houses”, equipped with cutting-edge technology and efficient resource management. The design of Ombria Resort respects the surrounding environment and safeguards the integrity of the indigenous natural landscape.

The award-wining Viceroy Residences at Ombria Resort include 65 one- and two-bedroom apartments, part of and located within the naturally exceptional Viceroy at Ombria Resort hotel. These freehold apartments are sold fully furnished and equipped to exacting five-star standards and feature open-plan kitchens and lavish living spaces, private gardens or terraces overlooking the golf course, some with their own private swimming pool or jacuzzi. They are under the expert management of Viceroy Hotels & Resorts, a global collection of modern luxury hotels that are strikingly individual.

The owners will receive a minimum guaranteed net yield of 5% per year for the first 5 years, regardless of the level of rental income generated in each of the years. Furthermore, owners can use up to 10 weeks per year and will have access to the hotel’s facilities and services, including 6 restaurants, spa, gym, kids club, swimming pools, concierge and property management.

The Alcedo Villas at Ombria Resort are 12 individual detached homes, set in individual plots of between 1.700 – 3.300 m2 each located next to the Viceroy hotel on a hillside plot, perched above a stream and with panoramic views of the golf course and the surrounding natural landscape. Ranging in size from 480 to 746 m2 of total built area, these twelve 3- to 7–bedroom villas can be adapted to each owner’s preferences. The traditional Algarvian yet modern architectural design of the villas by Portuguese Promontorio architects maximises views, privacy and sun exposure for each villa. Adaptability to the terrain and layout flexibility allows 12 personalised designs within one common conceptual approach, making each villa unique. The Alcedo villas are harmoniously integrated into the landscape and the traditional essence of the region.

Owners of a Viceroy Residence or Alcedo Villa at Ombria Resort, will enjoy a range of benefits at the Viceroy hotel and Ombria Resort’s golf course , including privileged access to the facilities and different discounts.
