This Year’s Inspirational Motto is “Tropicaliente”
This year, Vila Vita Parc’s Festive Season starts with a warm touch of tropical experiences to “stir your soul and fuel those hidden deep beats in Tropicaliente style”, with Nature as one of the main inspirations for this year’s Christmas and New Year’s festivities.
Vila Vita’s Festive Season starts on December 5 with the Christmas Lighting Ceremony, and extend throughout the month until early January 2022.
The spirit of Christmas will continue through the weekend of December 18-19, with the Christmas Market at the V-Life Shops at Vila Vita Parc. Between 3pm and 8.30pm, the afternoon programme is filled with glamorous shopping for last-minute gifts, lively music and entertainment, workshops designed for children and adults, and hearty food and drinks such as the traditional hot Glühwein.

The traditional Christmas Eve dinner will be served on December 24, in several of the resort’s restaurants, including Ocean Restaurant (with two Michelin stars), with the Gourmet Menu (€210pp, beverages not included).

The new Disco Club has opened in October and promises to “liven up the Algarve in a glamorous and very exclusive environment, especially designed for dancing well into the night.”
