Sublime Comporta

Comporta, Portugal

Magical. Unspoiled. Creative. Sublime Comporta is nestled on a 17-acre estate surrounded by undulating umbrella pine and cork trees, wild sand dunes, rice fields, and over 60km of pristine, white sand beaches. It’s often compared to the Hamptons of the ‘70s and has become somewhat of a ‘creative hub’, frequented by artists, designers, and architects.

Rooms, suites, and the ‘Comporta style’ villas are spread between several buildings that add to the privacy of the hotel. Choose from the Owner’s House, the Guest Suites, the Bio-Pool Suites, and several 2, 3, 4, and 5-bedroom cabana style villas, all of which have a private pool, fireplace, and terrace.

The story

Husband and wife duo, Gonçalo and Patricia Pessoa, dreamed up Sublime Comporta over many years and finally realized their vision in 2014. Gonçalo is a former airline pilot but has now retired his wings to care for the couple’s hotel—a mark of their dedication and love for the property.

Your stay

Drift off to a symphony of frog chorus at one of the hotel’s nine cabanas built overlooking one of Europe’s largest biological pools. The bio-pool suites include private terraces that allow you to plunge straight into the freshwater. Aquatic plants are used in place of chemicals which means you get to enjoy the authentic ecosystem created.

"For us it is a privilege to be part of the greatest collection of Family Owned Hotels in the world"

— Gonçalo Pessoa | Owner

How to spend your time

Days are best spent relaxed and low-key – afterall, that’s what Sublime Comporta is all about – but if you do feel like getting out, horseback riding is one of the most romantic ways to explore the sand dunes, rice fields, and beaches that surround the hotel.

Expect the unexpected

By the side of the road on the way to Carvalahl, you might find Senior Julio and his chests of undiscovered treasures. Infact, his finds are so good, many hotels and restaurants keep close ties for unique decoration pieces.
