ALDEIA DA FONTE HOTEL was a project started 20 years in Pico Island, Azores and the concept was to plan and built an hotel by sea which could improve the landscape and the environment and prove that it is possible to blend business and nature with an win-win initiative.
So it was decided to build five different buildings inspired in local architecture so the hotel could respect the land and “disappear” among gardens and lush trees and overlook the sea from above the cliffs of Pigeon Bay where hundreds of wild pigeons live. And result was an hotel we don´t “see” from anywhere: land, sea or air. You have to be inside the premises to really understand all the facilities put at disposition among 40 lodging units.
Aldeia da Fonte is not, therefore, a hotel where you simply rent a room or a suite to sleep in. By renting a room you will be able to fully enjoy a natural park just by the sea and walk around to discover all sort of corners and hidden surprises that will go from the Tai Chi gardens overlooking the hotel to the Sea Lounge just by the sea or walk in an amazing trail to go and swim at the sea or to go to panoramic hotel swimming pool.
Or you might prefer to go our private whale watching tower where you will be able to spot whales and dolphins or enjoy the quietude of the Zen Room where you will be able to practice yoga or have a professional massage by one of our physiotherapist. Or simply roam about our gardens and enjoy a deep breath of the best air you can have.
And then go to our Restaurant praised like one of the best of the island where will be able to enjoy the best of local products like fish and meat as well as Pico wines and cheeses.
To complete our concept of fruition and wellness we are going to start building (before the end of 2012) a Spa Thalasso within a short walk that will provide you all sort of treatments and menus foe Health and Wellness.
We starting this blog to keep everybody who cares well informed of what of happening in our hotel. To keep informed just submit to our email alert which will keep you updated for every new post.
