Coporgest will build a resort with a heliport in the Tróia area, as a result of a €116 million investment.

Within three years, Tróia will have a new luxury development – “a real five-star”. Developer Coporgest will invest €116 million to build a resort with 58 rooms and suites, 38 villas and 91 tourist flats, on land bought from Sonae Capital. With a spa, saltwater pools, two restaurants and even a heliport, this new unit will also prioritise environmental issues.

It is another tourist investment in the Tróia area, this time by Coporgest, in partnership with an “international luxury chain”, whose name was not disclosed, according to a statement sent out on Monday by the property developer. “We had been looking for a long time for an opportunity on this coast, but everything that appeared to us was too equal to all the other developments,” says Sérgio Ferreira, founder and CEO of Coporgest, quoted in a statement. “When this land came up, a two-minute walk from the beach, we didn’t hesitate,” he adds.

Located on “land very close to the beach”, the new resort includes a five-star hotel with 58 rooms and suites, 38 villas of typologies V2, V3 and V4 and 91 tourist flats with typologies T1, T2 and T3 – “all units will have sea view”. There will also be a gym, spa, saltwater pools, two restaurants, a kid’s club and an emergency heliport.

“To date, a true 5-star has never been made in the Tróia/Comporta area and we believe the region needs a very qualified unit,” says Sérgio Ferreira. The future resort will be installed on the land that Coporgest acquired from Sonae Capital in December 2020, and which for many years housed the old Tróia Camping Park, which was deactivated in the late 1980s.

The investment for this project, which is expected to be completed in the last quarter of 2025, is €116 million. Coporgest says that “priority will be given to environmental issues, promoting energy self-sufficiency and good management of water resources, on a property that will have no cars in sight. A public car park will be built, “in order to guarantee free access to the beach”.

“The goal is to transpose to this property the construction quality and luxury finishes that we have always used in our developments, adopting an architectural language adjusted to the Comporta area and complying with environmental standards that guarantee that the dune system will not be harmed,” emphasizes the CEO of Coporgest.
