Vila Joya, Estrada da Galé, 8201-917 Albufeira, Portugal
Vila Joya, a home, restaurant, and spa overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is the Algarve’s best kept secret. Vila Joya means "House of Joy" and is named after Joy Jung, the sole owner. As one of the leading luxury hotels of the world, impeccable service and elegantly appointed rooms are a given. But it is the gourmet restaurant led by Austrian chef Dieter Koschina that draws gourmet food lovers from around the world to its doors. The only restaurant in Portugal to make the top 50 on San Pellegrino's list of the World’s Best Restaurants, Koschina’s daily changing menu is a complete and utter sensory delight. This is our review from a sublime day spent at Vila Joya in June.
