Covid19 Prevention Measures

Given the evolution of the pandemic, and although 88% of the population in Portugal is now vaccinated against Covid19, the Portuguese Government announced the State of Calamity with preventive measures, to help contain the growth of the pandemic.

Effective as of 10 January 2022

All VILA VITA Parc’s facilities and services at the resort and beyond, including VILA VITA Collection, remain open, with some exceptions and restrictions.
