Press Release Summary: Memmo Baleeira, a Contemporary and Minimalist Hotel in
Sagres, Algarve - Portugal, joins the Independent Hotel Chain, ARTEH - Hotels and

Press Release Body: Located along the Southwest Region of the Algarve and
overlooking the Atlantic Ocean since the 60's, Memmo Baleeira has been completely
refurbished and is now an ARTEH Hotel.

The Hotel's name is inspired by the word "memories", hence "Memmo", and Baleeira is
the exact location in Sagres. The symbol is a chameleon which reverts to the
architectural genre of being fully integrated with the surroundings, benefiting from
natural light in every corner.

The Hotel first opened its doors in 1962, and quickly became known for its bold
decoration and quality service. The service has just gotten better over the years
and today we experience a relaxing environment in anyone of the 105 rooms, unique
Suite or 5 Duplex Suites that overlook the Atlantic Ocean.

Inside, the dcor is a true blast from the past where the sphere is the dominating
theme from the sealing to the carpets, sofas and floors. Complimenting the theme
you'll find designer furniture by Tom Vac and Philippe Starck, along with re-styled
pieces that originally decorated the Hotel during the 60's.

The vibe is simple and trendy in tones of white, dark brown and ocean blue, giving
the Hotel a neat and clean look that is paradise to minimalist lovers and
contemporary art seekers.

The Hotel's facilities include a magnificent SPA that allows sunset massages on
sun-beds by the rocks where waves make a gentle, relaxing and seductive soundtrack.
The treatments vary from oriental head massages to full body jade stone relaxation

More information about this Hotel's SPA is available on ARTEH's SPA Circuit -
Portugal Special Edition.

About the Algarve

The Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal, incorporating, amongst others,
the cities of Faro, Lagos, Olho, Tavira, Portimo and Silves.

Due to the Moorish occupation, the region was called "Al-Gharb" which means "the
country of the West". The Moorinsh occupation ended during the 12th Century and the
"Al-Gharb" has been since then the Algarve, however, it was not until the 13th
Century that the Portuguese finally secured the region against subsequent Moorish
attempts to recapture the area.

The Algarve is hilly, but traversed with rich valleys. Its highest point is the
Mountain range of Monchique, with a maximum altitude of 906m - Peak of the Fia. The
region is also home of the Ria Rormosa, a Nature Reserve of 170 square kilometers
where hundreds of different types of birds can be seen.

Presently, the Algarve is a popular destination for tourism, mainly because of its
clean, warm water beaches and Mediterranean climate. The length of the south facing
coastline is approximately 155 kilometers. Beyond the westernmost point Cape Saint
Vincent it stretches a further 50 kilometers to the north. The coastline is notable
for picturesque limestone caves and grottoes, particularly around Lagos, which are
accessible by boat.

There are many other amazing and famous summer destinations such as Albufaeira,
Vilamoura, Portimo, Lagos, Armao de Pra, Monte Gordo and Tavira.
