– ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ –

The history of VILA VITA Hotels dates back to 1980, the year the first teams of ’Deutsche Vermögensberatung’ began to travel to Austria.

Prof. Dr. Reinfried Pohl, with his wife Anneliese and their two sons, regularly took teams of financial advisors and their families to Pannonia in the Austrian Burgenland. Pannonia thus represents the cradle of this exquisite, small hotel group that today includes five hotels and a vineyard. These hotels are very popular meeting venues not only for financial advisors, but also offer perfect facilities for a variety of conferences and seminars.

In 1990 VILA VITA Burghotel, the first hotel of the group, opened its doors in Dinklage, followed shortly by Schlosshotel Oberstotzingen on the fringes of the Donauried. Only two years later the beach resort VILA VITA Parc on the Portuguese Algarve coast was the newest addition to the group and became an instant success. The stylish luxury resort, a member of ’Leading Hotels of the World’ was named runner-up in the category ’Best Beach Resort in Europe’ by the renowned travel magazine ’Geo Saison’.

In 1993 Prof. Dr. Pohl purchased the venue of their very first travel destination in the Austrian Burgenland and launched it as VILA VITA Pannonia. Since 1997 the hotel group includes the private vineyard ’Herdade dos Grous’ in the Portuguese Alentejo region. In addition to growing award-winning wines, the estate has started to breed horses as well as cattle and produces excellent olive oils. The addition in 2000 was the acclaimed five-star deluxe hotel VILA VITA Rosenpark in Marburg.

From the very beginning, Anneliese Pohl took charge of the design and concept development for the different hotels. It is due to her guidance that each hotel exudes its own personal ambience, is built in harmony with the surrounding countryside and decorated with careful attention to detail. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed and it is not a surprise to see a large amount of return customers booking VILA VITA Hotels on a regular basis.

In 2011 a new addition to the VILA VITA group opened its doors: the VILA VITA Anneliese Pohl Seedorf at the lake Plauer See in southern Mecklenburg. Conceived as a car-free, nature inspired village, it offers 188 guests tranquil facilities for holidays and seminars.

The group provides more than 651 rooms, accommodating a total of 1590 guests that are catered and cared for by 960 dedicated employees in Germany, Austria and Portugal. The hotel group is directed by CEO Andreas Pohl.

HYPOXI® Studio
An innovative method for targeted body shaping

The first and only of its kind in Portugal, VILA VITA Parc's HYPOXI® Studio offers a unique and effective way of sculpting your body. The method, which is based on a moderate workout routine and a balanced nutrition plan, promises to:

  • Target and eradicate stubborn fat deposits on desired areas
  • Eliminate fluid retention and toxins
  • Tone the skin
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Accelerate your metabolism

The HYPOXI® Method targets undesired fat deposits on the waist, stomach, buttocks and thighs, through the unique combination of vacuum therapy and moderate fat burning activity.

During training, alternating high and low vacuum pressure stimulates the flow of blood to the parts of the body where stubborn fat most commonly clings and accelerates the transport of fatty acids from these regions. The intermittent blasts of pressure from the vacuum also gently exercise the skin, making it firmer, smoother and more elastic.

Our dedicated HYPOXI® Coach will put together an individual training plan designed according to your needs and objectives, and can also give expert advice on nutrition. Results are fast, targeted, visible and long lasting, making you look and feel so much better.

Vila Vita Biergarten

With an interior entirely lined with 120-year-old vintage wood, stepping into the Biergarten feels like you’re being transported to a rustic chalet in the Alps. The decoration, cosy and traditional, contributes to the location’s unique convivial atmosphere, typical of the best German beer gardens.

There is also a bar at the entrance, covered in characterful wooden tiles used in regional Bavarian design, as well as a raised floor area on the upper floor, ideal for live band performances, and an outdoor area featuring sharing benches and murals depicting scenes from Bavarian life.

The menu is based on “food-for-beer” and “butcher-to-table” concept, and features an array of tasty new dishes which will delight all true Bavarian gastronomy lovers, as for example the crispy Bavaria blue cheese with potato rösti and blueberries, the home-made cold-smoked salmon salad, the vegetarian Schupfnudeln pasta with roasted vegetables, sautéed with basil and almond pesto, or the ‘giant’ beef chop’ for two with crunchy potato salad with fennel, sweet-chili and nuts.

But the real star of the menu is the extraordinary selection of excellent German beers as well as the Porches Craft Beer - VILA VITA Parc’s very own craft beer - whose latest IPA version (Indian Pale Ale), with a seductive tropical aroma and a zingy, super refreshing after-taste, is one of the latest additions to the gastronomic world of VILA VITA.

Café Bica

A coffee for every taste

The story goes that when the first espresso coffees were sold in Lisbon, the public found them so bitter that the owner of the coffee shop invented a slogan to help sales: "Bebe Isto Com Açucar”, which translates to “Drink It With Sugar."

It was so successful that its initials “BICA” are now synonymous of coffee. But beware, there are many ways to order a coffee in Portugal: curto, cheio, pingado, galão, meia de leite, carioca, americano, each with its slight nuance and flavour… There´s really a coffee for every taste.

If you've never had the chance of sipping a good portuguese Bica coffee along with a warm Pastel de Nata, while reading your favorite newspaper under a beautiful morning's blue sky, you don't know what you're missing.
