This luxury Six Senses resort in Portugal enjoys a truly stunning location; set as it is in the UNESCO World Heritage listed Douro Valley.
The hotel itself is surrounded by ancient vineyards, which are characteristic of the region. Indeed, those who love their vintages will be at home here, with the unique Wine Library & Terrace offering tastings in a relaxed and informative style.
Accommodation is impressive, presenting a stylish, contemporary air. Large windows give way to views of the outstanding natural beauty that is on your doorstep.
The hotel reopened in June 2015 under the auspices of the inimitable Six Senses Group. Accordingly, the Six Senses Spa is a real feature, with its expansive indoor pool, outdoor pool and 10 treatment rooms looking out over the spectacular countryside.
Dining is a delight here, with a bar serving Tapas and two à la carte restaurants. Whether it's a quick sandwich at lunch or a three course meal in the evening; you won't be disappointed by the quality fare on offer. An organic garden and vegetable patch nearby provides seasonal vegetables where possible
Throughout the hotel, decor is chic and modern and there is an emphasis on sustainable luxury. Innovative use of cork flooring and beautiful chandeliers made from wine bottles lend a sense of place, whilst also 'upcycling' in an environmentally conscious style. This attention to detail characterises what is a truly special Portuguese hotel.
