Resort Development, Portugal



Working with long time collaborators, Arc Consulting Partners we have been developing a vision for a new tourism destination on a 200 ha site in the Algarve, Portugal.

Strategically positioned at the edge of a National Park and within close proximity to the sea, particular care has been taken to create a sustainable offer that will be rooted in the local context.

A detailed benchmarking exercise was undertaken to identify successful international operations in sensitive locations, together with engagement with local stakeholders and the mapping of existing constraints and opportunities.

Following this, an outline master plan, accommodation schedules and business case have been prepared for further engagement with stakeholders and operators and applications for regulatory consents.
