Vistas awarded Michelin Star

Monte Rei is very proud to announce that our fine dining restaurant, Vistas, has been awarded its first Michelin star. Led by Executive Chef, Rui Silvestre, the entire team has worked tirelessly to ensure Vistas offers the complete dining experience.

In confirming the award, the Michelin judges praised Vistas as “a kitchen of great finesse, deserving of a visit. Using top quality ingredients, dishes with distinct flavours are carefully prepared to a consistently high standard.”

Extensive renovation work continues over the coming months, and we look forward to re-opening in March 2020 with a greatly improved kitchen area alongside a new dedicated chef’s table.

Jack Nicklaus visits Monte Rei

Monte Rei welcomed Jack Nicklaus to Monte Rei in July, rounding off a landmark month for the club. Mr Nicklaus spent two days at Monte Rei, working with the team responsible for designing and developing the new South Course which commence construction soon, as well as reviewing the 12-year-old and award-winning North Course.

Mr Nicklaus was very impressed by both the maturity and quality of the North Course, and the huge possibilities that the South Course offers, saying:

“Monte Rei really is a jewel! The North Course has matured over time and is a hugely impressive course now. I’m obviously very proud of it as you didn’t hire me to design a signature hole, you wanted me to design 18 signature holes, and that’s what we tried to do.”

“And with the South Course, we will create something new and distinct from the North Course, but consistent with my design philosophy. We will try to create enough variety that they love the variety, and like both golf courses. The two courses will complement each other and continue to further Monte Rei’s reputation as one of the best golf resorts in Europe.”
