Vilamoura is one of Europe's most popular golf destinations and The Dom Pedro Group has been at the heart of its development for over half a century.

The organisation’s standing in the region has only been enhanced by the investment in Vilamoura's five headline golf courses, which are complemented by 634 hotel rooms and apartments at three 4-star hotel properties, all within close proximity to one another, and to Vilamoura’s other main attractions, namely the pristine beaches and the marina.

"We have embarked on a journey that will allow us to improve the golfer’s experience in Vilamoura by enhancing the customer service, and enhancing the close ties with the Dom Pedro accommodations and hospitality promise," added Saviotti.

The high-profile acquisition of the five Vilamoura golf courses last year has culminated in a revitalised direction for the courses, which continue to attract visiting golfers from around the world.

A new look website has been launched, providing golfers with access to all manner of information, and offering the consumer the chance to build their own Vilamoura Golf Experience, encompassing the courses they play to the hotels they stay in.

"Dom Pedro Golf will become synonymous with providing first-class service and hospitality for our visitors, guests and trade partners," said Luis Correia da Silva, CEO Dom Pedro Golf.

"We aim to grow the region’s appeal as the most complete golf destination in Europe; there are not many places in the world where you can play so many fantastic golf courses, in such close proximity to each other, and enjoy complimentary transport between the courses, enjoy beautiful beaches, and the marina, with all of its bars and restaurants.”
