Dressed in a neutral colour scheme, all pared back cocoa and caramel tones set against white, the Memmo Baleeira feels crisp, clean and understatedly cool. This backdrop is punctuated with designer furniture including Philippe Starck lamps and Tom Vac chairs, enhancing the hip vibe, while the outdoor area is all wooden decking, chic sun loungers and a large swimming pool with sea views. The hotel also boasts an indoor pool along with its spa and gym, but if keeping active is on your agenda, there are plenty of activities available here too. Take lessons at the surf academy, go trekking, diving or horse riding, and opt for an al fresco yoga session to reconnect with your surroundings. Back onsite, there’s a library, TV lounge and playground for the kids, plus a restaurant serving Mediterranean classics. Try pizza straight from the wood-fired oven, octopus on the grill, perhaps some freshly caught cod, or make way for the cocktail bar, where sundowners and an outdoor firepit to cosy up next to while gazing out to sea, provide some Mediterranean holiday bliss.
