Among the surging hills of the eastern Algarve, Monte Rei flows effortlessly over the striking Portuguese landscape, creating a golf course that has captured the hearts of golfers the world over. Since first opening its doors in 2007, Monte Rei has experienced a meteoric rise in popularity, with Jack Nicklaus’ signature design now heralded as one of the greatest layouts in the entire world.

Monte Rei Resort is found just three miles from Manta Rota Beach on the Atlantic coast, only a 45-minute drive from Faro Airport, in a peaceful setting that makes a great change of pace from the liveliness of Vilamoura. Accommodation at Monte Rei comes in the form of opulent Portuguese villas, located within a few minutes of the spectacular hilltop clubhouse making it one of the best resorts for golf in Portugal.

In 2022, Monte Rei was named Number 1 Golf Course in Portugal and 27th in the World by Golf Digest, high-praise indeed.
