Find Your Paradise in Portugal


Visitors eagerly flock to Portugal throughout the year to bask in the glorious sunshine and relax on its award-winning beaches. Many opt over and over again for the magical city of Porto or for the colorful Lisbon. But whether you’re planning your first holiday in Portugal or returning for another great getaway, Jet2holidays has ways that you can make your trip even more special.

Jet2holidays has hand selected a range of five-star hotels in Portugal’s the Algarve and on the Portuguese island of Madeira for its ‘Indulgent Escapes’ collection, where you’ll find only hotels with unforgettable settings, excellent facilities and fine dining options, so that you’ll enjoy a Portugal holiday that’s a cut above the rest.

Be Amazed in the Algarve

Famous for having no less than 69 Blue Flag-winning beaches, it’s easy to be lured in by the Algarve but very difficult to leave, especially if you spend your stay at the Tivoli Marina in Vilamoura. Situated in the marina, you’ll also have direct access to the nearby Puro beach and be in close proximity to numerous golf courses, and the choice to relax and enjoy a treatment at the on-site Angsana Spa by Banyan Tree or just lounge by the pool. This way, you are sure to enjoy your Algarve Portugal holidays to the max.

The Hilton Vilamoura Hotel will draw you in too, situated in five acres of manicured gardens and offering all the quality that you’d expect from a Hilton and’s Indulgent Escapes. The unique Moorish architecture of the Hilton Vilamoura looks particularly striking against the greenery of the surrounding golf courses, but if golf isn’t your game you can spend your time instead in the spa, gym, one of the five large pools or on the hotels’ private Falesia beach.

Marvel at Madeira

Winston Churchill’s favourite haunt, which he described as a ‘floating garden’, is every inch as stunningly spectacular as that definition would suggest. To experience the Portuguese island of Madeira at its best, take your pick of one of Jet2holidays’ Indulgent Escapes properties in the Old Town of Funchal.

Perched atop a natural premontory, the Cliff Bay hotel offers views of the Atlantic Ocean as far as the eye can see, as well as being enclosed by palm trees and benefiting from a lavish spa and world-class cuisine. The Reids Palace Hotel has an enviable location too, on a cliff-top and set among sub-tropical gardens, with weekly gourmet dining events taking place in the hotel and champagne served with afternoon tea, and direct access to the sea and a private sunbathing platform exclusively for guests’ use.  The Pestana Carlton Madeira Ocean Resort Hotel, selected for the Indulgent Escapes collection for its dramatic views of the mountains and the ocean, has also been recently refurbished and offers guests the delights of show cooking, a spacious garden sun terrace, Turkish bath and even a diving school. For a holiday in Portugal that you’ll remember for years to come, it has to be an Indulgent Escape.
