With an average of 500 staff, reaching above 700 in the high season, the resort is the largest employer in the local Lagoa municipality. The dedicated staff have helped win many international awards, including World’s Leading Green Resort at the World Travel Awards in 2015, an important recognition of the VILA VITA’s ongoing dedication to sustainability.
"Above all, VILA VITA Parc is about people. I am fortunate to have a fantastic team and we have many guests from around the world who return year after year.
Like the staff, they are also now part of the VILA VITA family. Times change and we must change with the times, but the core values of what was originally created here, in 1992, are stronger than ever."
At VILA VITA Parc, we believe in something bigger than ourselves that is self-sustaining and for the benefit of the whole of Algarve. The essence of the experience we deliver to customers must be enriching, enlightening and memorable – to an exponential degree. What we can control – the flawless travel experience – is what we should shine at, day in and out.
Luxury is not easy to define. Could be a state of great comfort, elegance, uniqueness or just the ability to not have to think. The word Luxury is really personal and has lots of subjective connotations.
Considering all the interpretations or expectations, at VILA VITA Parc we work hard on exceeding the possibilities taking care of each detail. We want to deliver more than just luxury, delivering memories and stories.
All families face times when they must pull together, when they need the right leadership to survive. VILA VITA Parc always aims to keep employees healthy; maintain their morale; oversees a vast remote-working experiment; and, as a family, considers how to best support each of its members.
