25 Sep Luxury travel in Portugal
Luxury travel Portugal has never been better...
Other the past few years, Portugal has definitely become more luxurious: 5 star hotels, Michelin star restaurants, exclusive spas and wellness resorts…now you will find more and more appearing across the country. Let´s dive right in….
The Porto and Douro region is home to some wonderful luxury hotels, such as The Yeatman, The Maison Albar Le Monumental Palace Hotel and Hotel Ventozelo Hotel & Quinta. Fine dining is also prevalent in these areas with some fabulous restaurants. We recommend the authentic Mário Luso, sophisticated DOP and modern Oficina. The most luxurious spa and wellness centre in this region has to be Six Senses Douro Valley. Discover where Portuguese tradition meets the elements of water, stone and wood in a great setting for rural relaxation. Take a dip in the indoor pool and enjoy the different baths, such as herbal bath and laconium and infrared sauna or panoramic sauna.
Lisbon, as the capital of Portugal, is the perfect stop on your luxury travel around the country. Trendy rooftop bar and restaurant SEEN at the Tivoli Hotel is a luxurious experience, with amazing views over the city. Dine at the wonderful SUBA restaurant to enjoy cuisine from Chef Fábio Alves who presents his creative cuisine bold in technique and surprising in taste. For a luxury spa experience, visit BSpa by Karin Herzog at the Altis Belem Hotel. Treatments are holistic, inspiring and improve overall wellbeing. You can also charter a private yacht down the River Tagus for a private and unique experience with some wonderful views of Lisbon from the river.
Alentejo is an emerging wine region on the global stage, with a wealth of terroir and wines with richness in aromas and colours. At L ´AND Vineyards, a luxurious wine resort, they offer guided tours and tastings from the Alentejo region. In the Restaurant be taken on a gastronomic journey that expresses L ´ AND´s identity, spirit and the pure nature of the region. Due to its large area, Alentejo has the particularity of giving rise to distinct microclimates and, consequently, to distinct wines. At the unique Monte da Ravasqueira winery you can explore a classic, prestigious winery with a walk in the vineyards and even view a private collection of horse carriages; one of the largest in Europe. Luxury hotels include Convento do Espinheiro and the wonderful São Lourenço do Barrocal wine estate, near the border with Spain.
Algarve is also a great place to charter a luxury boat, visit a spa and enjoy an opulent restaurant. We recommend these 5 star hotels, for pure elegance and unique locations: Tivoli Carvoeiro, Conrad Algarve and Quinta dos Perfumes. Michelin restaurants include Avenida in Lagos, Aladin Grill in Porches and 2 Passos in Almancil. Enjoy Algarve’s nature with private surf classes, a trip to one of Algarve’s fine golf courses, private beach yoga experience and of course, a private yacht charter of the stunning Algarve coast including the Benagil Caves and Ponte da Piedade rock formation. Not to be missed.
