By May 6, 20102 Comments

Monte ReiMonte Rei, the luxury golf resort located in Tavira, East Algarve, has launched a variety of packages for golfers to enjoy not only the critically acclaimed Jack Nicklaus designed golf course, but also sumptuous accommodations for their next golf holiday.

Within easy reach of Faro International airport, Monte Rei is situated approximately 30 minutes from Faro off the main A22 motorway. Set within 1,000 acres of beautiful Portuguese countryside the resort offers impressive vistas from its hilltop position. With the local towns of Altura and Vila Nova de Cacela providing perfect additions to the frame that is the Atlantic Ocean, Monte Rei is a peaceful location that satisfies all visual desires. The Monte Rei experience is befitting of such a stunning position, from the stunning clubhouse overlooking the tough par-5 18th hole to the personalised golf buggies and bag tags which players receive during their golf registration, golfers are left with a feeling of privilege which few courses in Europe can contend with.

Monte ReiAlthough Monte Rei has only been welcoming players since 2007, the course has gained recognition amongst various golf course rankings (currently 2nd in Europe via Top 100 Golf Courses) and is undoubtedly a superb golfing experience. The new accommodation offered to golfers combines modern amenities such as flat screen TV’s, luxury furnishings and fittings with traditional Portuguese architecture. With a small selection of three-bedroom linked villas available for golf holiday rent, these are perfect for groups and couples alike with rooms able to be made into both twin and double bedded accommodations. The slightly larger master bedroom enjoys its own private balcony perfect for sunbathing after an enjoyable round of golf. The spacious living areas are great for entertaining après golf, while the patio is an ideal place to relax with a nice glass of wine or the famed Superbock beer.

Monte ReiGuests travelling to Monte Rei are sure to have an unforgettable experience, although it isn’t just the accommodation or the golf which will keep guests coming to this resort for many years, the fine dining on offer within the resort, in particular the Vistas restaurant add to the memorable holiday. The culinary experience at Monte Rei has been created by Jaime Perez who honed his skills under famed Chef Ferran Adria of 3 Michelin Star restaurant El Bulli fame. Under this guidance Monte Rei has quickly become not only the premier golfing but also culinary destination in the Algarve.

Golf Holiday packages to Monte Rei are available from £349 per person. Packages include three night’s accommodation within a three-bedroom linked villa, two rounds of golf at Monte Rei (including shared buggy), use of the practice range including balls, full English breakfast served within the clubhouse, a welcome Tapas lunch in the Grill Restaurant and a Dinner within the Fine Dining Vistas Restaurant.

Have travelled far and wide to be able to contribute to the 19th hole blog. Often referred to as one of the most boring people in golf due to my facts and figures about different destinations!

    I played here earlier in the year and can safely say all the hype surrounding the course is more than justified. Although the green fee is slightly more than you’d normally pay, the service, quality of course and that you get range balls and buggies included make it well worth it. When we played it bucketed it down on the 11th hole, after taking some refuge under a tree we saw the pro coming out on a buggy who gave us towels to dry off with – have played plenty of courses in the rain before and never had that! Have to say the properties look very impressive and sell for millions of euros so at £349 for that package it is a bargain. Will be booking for my next golf holiday in February to Monte Rei.

    I played last year and enjoyed what was undoubtedly one of the best golfing experiences of my life. Although expensive on the drinks side the golf was worth all of the £100 I paid. Service was 5 star and the godess who emerged from the trees bearing iced towels was spectacular! Fully reccomend the course and will be booking a villa soon.
