HPA, the Algarve’s largest private hospital group, is branching out into tourism with the construction of a “luxury wellness hotel” in Alvor.

Entitled ‘Longevity Health & Wellness Hotel’, it is being built on a plot of land near the HPA hospital in Alvor.

Construction started around two weeks ago and is expected to be completed by spring next year, a spokesperson for construction company Gabriel Couto, which also built IKEA’s new Mar Shopping Algarve mall in Loulé, told the Resident.

The hotel will feature 70 rooms, a 1,500sqm spa, medical area, multipurpose room, restaurants, tearooms, terrace pool with a view of the Alvor bay, and several green spaces.

It will span four storeys, a basement and a subbasement and boast a total construction area of 7,500sqm.

“Located in the Portimão region, this hotel is being built in the tourist village of Alvor which boasts a perfect symbiosis between the tranquility of the beach and the tradition of fishing,” said the construction company in a statement.

The hotel has been designed by Vítor Vilhena architects.

This will be HPA’s first tourism venture. The group currently runs three hospitals in the Algarve and nine clinics. Its first hospital opened in 1996 in Alvor.
