By Hilton Cabo Verde Sal Resort

Hilton Cabo Verde Sal Resort, with its oceanfront location and close proximity to the colourful fishing village of Santa Maria, is an ideal starting point for exploring the local attractions of the island an indulging in the available watersports — diving, jet skiing, snorkelling and sailing. 

The hotel has 241 elegant rooms reflecting the colours and flair of the local surroundings. Rooms include a balcony or terrace with a sitting area. Upgrading to one of the hotel's superior rooms gives guests a view overlooking the ocean or pool. For the most exclusive accommodation experience in the hotel, guests can choose between one of the airy suites or go all out and book the presidential suite. 

The U-shaped building features a 1,200sq metre pool embellished with a lush tropical garden and shaded by palm trees. Upon arrival, guests enter a lobby adorned by an elegant chandelier and an imposing water feature. Inspired by the sailing routes of the explorers of the New World, the hotel's main diving venue is the Magellan Restaurant. It serves up a rich buffet and a selection of international fishes appealing to a wide range of palates. The Pool Bar, meanwhile, offers healthy food and beverages.

As the afternoon comes around, guests can venture down to the sandy beach and enjoy The Bounty Beach Restaurant while the DJ plays a carefully selected mix of chill out and deep house music. In addition, the Cize bar opens its doors around this time, with its menu of carefully prepared cocktails, finger food and excellent selection of wines. As the sun sets, the mood changes, and to reflect this the music takes on a new vibe — jazz, soul and Cape Verdean music is performed by local artists every night.

Since holidays should be about relaxation and pampering, the hotel's eforea Spa and beauty salon offer massages and treatments. The site also caters for guests careful not to neglect their fitness routine while away — the fully equipped gym is open 24 hours a day. And for the kids, there's the daily children's club with plenty of dedicated activities and access to the kids' pool.
