Four Winds

About us

Nigel and Nicholas have a distinguished background as hotel developer/operators in the UK and over the past decade they have founded two innovative and award winning hotel brands; Luxury Family Hotels ( and Alias Hotels ( have recently sold both brands to concentrate on Four Winds.

Four Winds represents their response to the development and subsequent operation of “luxury family” orientated holiday resorts. So Nigel and Nicholas have teamed up with Roman and Chitra Stern to develop and operate an exceptional resort at Martinhal on the Western Algarve. The resort has been designed by Conran&Partners and is due to open at the end of 2009. Martinhal sits on the edge of golden sands and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. It is within walking distance of the historic town of Sagres, where Henry the Navigator famously promoted the Voyages of Discovery and perhaps the best bit of all is that this whole area is within the protected Costa Vicentina Natural Park.

Since 2004, Four Winds has also operated the well known ski chalet company Meriski, in Meribel, France.

The company continues to look for interesting project in very special locations, including Liss Ard near Cork, Ireland.
