Galo Resort is located on the Cliffside of the Garajua Marine reserve. A grouping of three hotels all with their own specialties like Ayurvedic healing, scuba diving or luxury. On my visit here I was a guest in their glamping hut, an off grid ocean side bungalow. Which quickly became the highlight of my entire trip to Portugal. I fell in love with the beauty of this place and also their commitment to the environment. Galo Resort has solar panels that create most of their electricity. They encourage experiencing nature and staying in shape, as well as helping the local community.
I was lucky enough to be able to stay in their glamping hut. A one of a kind bungalow situated on a deck on the edge of the ocean. With no electricity it was to be a quiet night gazing at the stars and listening to the sounds of the ocean. After an amazing dinner at their restaurant Atlantis which consisted of traditional Espada (fried fish with banana and passionfruit) yucca fries and salad I headed to my hut for some champagne under the moonlight. The hut is located on the bottom of the cliff that the hotel sits on top of. Situated on its own slab of dock with private swim ladder and sun deck. It has three walls and the front is open to the sea with curtains for privacy. This goes for the toilet as well, so if you want to do your business while watching the sun rise, go for it.
Staying at the glamping hut was a completely unique and amazing experience that I wouldn't trade for the world. I woke up to the rising sun, where I was served breakfast on my private dock. I swam in the ocean while taking turns sipping my coffee and watching the lizards play.
It was truly remarkable and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new and exciting experience.
