The five star beachfront Dona Filipa Hotel in Vale do Lobo is set to undergo major renovation work to “ensure it maintains its rightful position as one of the finest luxury hotels in the Algarve”, announced owners JJW Hotels & Resorts.

The work, which began on November 18, includes extensive alterations to the public areas, such as the lobby, lounge and bar, along with all rooms and suites. “The new interior design concept embraces both the elegance and charm of the Dona Filipa Hotel, whilst paying homage to its traditional Portuguese style,” said the group.

The renovation work will be overseen by international project designers Cunningham Mclean in association with ArtCatto, which runs an art gallery in Loulé and provides art consultancy services to hotels, businesses and private clients.
Mohsen MBI Al Jaber, innovation director at JJW Hotels & Resorts, is the next generation of the MBI Al Jaber family to be involved in the business in Portugal. He said: “The Dona Filipa Hotel - due to its location, with direct access to the beach - is a firm favourite with visitors to the region. However, I felt the time was right to invest in the future of the property and ensure it can continue to deliver the very highest standards of comfort and elegance that our guests deserve.

“We have been strong supporters of the Algarve for more than 25 years and following our recent announcement that we have taken over the management of the Penina hotel under JJW Hotels and Resorts, this significant new investment in the region underscores how important the Algarve is to the future plans of the group.”

Luis Filipe, general manager at Dona Filipa Hotel, said: “We are delighted and excited about the final renovation plan. It will successfully reposition us alongside all our luxury competitors in the area whilst ensuring we still deliver the highest levels of service expected from our five-star hotel.”

JJW Hotels & Resorts has been a major investor in the Algarve region for 25 years and employs 600 local people. The group operates a range of hotels, resorts, golf courses and cruise ships across Europe and the Middle East. The company conducts business in Austria, Egypt, France, Portugal and the UK.
