Julio Delgado, CEO at Ombria Resort, speaks to SPACE Editor Can Faik about the new luxury resort in the Algarve…
Ombria Resort, the new world-leading luxury real estate development in the heart of the Algarve, recently unveiled the design ethos behind its first phase, in partnership with WATG, WATG’s interior design firm Wimberly Interiors, and Portuguese architects PROMONTORIO.
With an initial investment of €100 million, Ombria Resort’s first development phase in the Algarve will welcome the arrival of a new five-star Viceroy hotel, Viceroy at Ombria Resort, which will feature 76 luxury guest rooms and suites in addition to 65 branded residences, the Viceroy Residences at Ombria Resort.
The overall design aesthetic draws inspiration from the features, forms, material and themes of the authentic Barrocal sub-region of the Algarve, creating the Resort’s overall ethos of ‘Carved by Nature’. The vision is to create a new sustainable luxury destination, promoting and supporting the heart of the Algarve area, boosting the local economy, enhancing the area’s culture and traditional heritage by embracing local craftsmen and their knowledge of materials. Designed as an elegant Portuguese village with all the charm and character of a long-established settlement, the graceful and considered design of Viceroy at Ombria Resort hotel and Viceroy Residences will reflect the surrounding architecture of the interior of the Algarve, while echoing the style of nearby traditional towns.
