Macdonald Monchique, Portugal: A resort that raises the spa
Tired of endless digital notifications and social media? Head to Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa in the Algarve, it's the ultimate detox from city life
Combining breathtaking views and unspoilt surroundings with sumptuous five-star hospitality, Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa is a unique place to stay in a largely undiscovered area of Portugal.
From the moment you check in, you'll find yourself relaxing in the supreme comfort of a beautifully appointed suite, slowing to the serene pace of the beautiful woods and rolling hills of the Serra Monchique in Portugal's western Algarve, leaving all of your worries behind back in London.
This is a place that's perfect for a digi detox, a place where you can easily unplug from incessant notifications, unending emails and addictive social media feeds, and – perhaps most importantly – a place that will help you escape it all with its beautiful natural scenery and sensuous spa.
That's why the team at Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa have come up with their new City Detox package, to help provide tired-out city dwellers deal with the rigour of life in the digital age.
While you're away, you'll be encouraged to trade in Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for time spent pampering yourself with world-class treatments or time spent in the resort's Sensorial Spa Thermal Circuit, which includes a sauna and Himalayan salt wall, themed tropical showers, an igloo ice cave and much more. So what are you waiting for? It's time to wind down and unplug – and there's nowhere better than here.
