Our legendary “Private Clients Portugal” trip is only a few months away now.
After an enforced break last year, we’re back in beautiful Vilamoura in June.
Call it a retreat, an international Mastermind, a business trip or golfing break, call it whatever you like, it looks like it’s happening.
8-11 June 2021
We’re heading back to the stunning Algarve, where we’ve been twice before.
If we can get there, the sun will be shining, the golf courses will be stunning, and maybe, just maybe, we’ll be socially distanced in the Irish Bar.
We’re changing the hotel from the last time we were there, and upgrading to somewhere closer to the marina, but apart from that, we’re sticking to our tried and tested recipe.
TRUTH IS, NOBODY CAN GUARANTEE THAT THE TRIP IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT IT’S LOOKING MORE LIKELY, AND ALL IT COSTS TO BE IN WITH A CHANCE IS A PLANE TICKET (AND THEY’RE CHEAP RIGHT NOW)
We’ll be back in all of our usual haunts – eating in the restaurants around the marina, sitting around the pool in the sunshine and drinking on the yacht at sunset.
The Ideal Result team will be out in force, with all NINE of us booked to come (we can’t wait) so you’ll be kept well entertained.
It promises to be an enjoyable few days away, here’s everything you need to know…
Vilamoura is a beautiful resort centred on a large marina, surrounded by bars, restaurants, shops and hotels.
There’s a sandy beach running along the coast, and plenty of golf courses around.
The closest airport is Faro, which is a 30 minute drive.
With the marina on one side and the beach on the other, the Tivoli resort is a Vilamoura icon. There are bars and restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools and a spa too.
“A classy venue. Excellent position on marina. Polite helpful staff very clean rooms. Good WiFi in room. Great views. Would definitely recommend and book again. Enjoyed our stay immensely. Bit expensive”
TripAdvisor, September 2019
We’ve reserved a tranche of rooms with Tivoli at a group rate of €230 for a double, €240 for a twin.
Faro is very easy to get to from the UK, with direct flights from Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Manchester and London.
The flight time is just under 3 hours (a little longer from Edinburgh), and the cost of a return flight ranges from £75 to £182 depending on airport.
The Ideal Result team is booked onto a Ryanair flight from Birmingham, you’re welcome to book the same flight, park your car at our office and join us for the journey.

There is no formal itinerary for the trip, so book your flights to suit you. If you’d rather fly out later and fly back earlier, do that.
There is no formal itinerary for the trip. No group meetings, no tours of Roman ruins, nothing at all.
Smithy will be off to the golf course, at least once, most probably twice, and maybe three times if you twist his arm.
Seb and I will be found in the hotel, running our infamous “Poolside Mastermind”, kicking off after breakfast each day, and continuing for as long as you want us to.
Some Private Clients take their laptops to the pool in the morning and trade them for a beer in the afternoon.
Ryan and Bob will take some camera equipment, so if you’d like to record a video while you’re away, they can help make that happen.
We’ll enjoy a few hours on the yacht one evening.
We’ll head out to the marina for dinner on the other nights.
Ideal Result will pay for the yacht, and we’ll pick up the tab at dinner too, but if you’re ordering lobster for lunch or bottles of Champagne in the Irish bar at midnight, that’s on you!
Grab a couple of people and head out for lunch in the sunshine, borrow a bike from the hotel and pedal into the distance, walk down to the beach, head to the gym or book a hot stone massage (€95) or a deep tissue sports massage (€100) down in the spa.
Booking your place
There are only two things you need to do to book onto Portugal 2021.
1. Book your flight directly with the airline
There are too many airports and too many flight times for us to get involved in booking flights, so you’re on your own.
2. Book your room through me
Don’t book your hotel room directly.
Instead, just email me and tell me
A – that you’re coming
B – which nights you need accommodation for
C – whether you need a Double or Twin room
I’ll add your name to the group booking, you won’t have anything to pay until you check in when you’ll pay the hotel directly for your room.
