This intervention implies the renovation of spaces and services in order to respond to the needs and requirements of its visitors, also enhancing the aspect of prevention and physical recovery.
In the same space, 27 new accommodation units will also be created specifically for those customers, who will have exclusive access. All in an estimated investment of 3.5 million euros.
At the same time, the lobby and reception areas will also be upgraded and the offer in terms of catering will be increased, with the creation of a new themed restaurant, thus making Vila Baleira Porto Santo available to three restaurants and four bars.
It remains to be noted that with these two hotel units the Vila Baleira Hotels & Resorts Group guarantees 150 jobs at all times, and at the peak of operations the number may rise to close to 300.
