ALENTEJO

Alentejo Marmoris Hotel & Spa, Vila Viçosa
Known as the 'bread basket' of Europe, the Alentejo region is the agricultural heartland of Portugal, her undulating plains and fertile soil fed by the mighty Tejo River, from where the region received its name: Alentejo—beyond the Tejo—as important to Portugal as the Po is to Italy. While the Po helps create the world-class Parmigiano Reggiano, the Alentejo produces the world's finest cork and marble. And right at its heart, within the charming, historic, marble-encrusted town of Vila Viçosa, lies the Alentejo Marmoris Hotel & Spa, one of the newest luxury hotels in Portugal. Just a two-minute walk from Vila Viçosa's historic Royal Palace, the Alantejo Marmoris in keeping with the rest of the town, luxuriously cocoons its guests in a marble wonderland. Far from its humble origins as a vintage mill, the Alentejo Marmoris has been transformed into a world-class hotel, from the intricate marble flooring to the marble-adorned Stone Spa. Our Members are invited to enjoy this superb hotel at exclusive . . . more

sintra

Lawrence's Hotel
The Portuguese and Moorish Royal families made Sintra their summer retreat with good reason. While Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, lies languid in the summer sun, not far away in the hills of Sintra the royals were enjoying the shady cobbled lanes and cool woodlands, the castles, palaces and breathtaking scenery—then take a tram to the lovely sandy beach at Praia das Maçãs. First choice for our Members in Sintra has to be the five-star Lawrence's Hotel, the oldest in the Iberian peninsula and second oldest in the world. Lawrence's is a country manor with all the touches one expects, from its library to its airy bedrooms and restaurant overlooking the garden. Lawrence's has a rich history. This was where Lord Byron stayed, inspiring his travel epic Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage (‘Lo! Cintra’s glorious Eden intervenes, in variegated maze of mount and glen’).

Douro

Douro Royal Valley Hotel & Spa
High on the north bank of the Douro River, surrounded by the ancient vineyards, the uber-modern Douro Royal Valley Hotel & Spa is a tranquil retreat with its focus on delicious local food and wide-open space for relaxation—it has just appointed an internationally renowned chef and every one of its 70 contemporary and sophisticated guest rooms and suites opens on to a balcony or patio with an expansive view over the river and valley below. Even the infinity pool is up on the seventh floor, giving splendid vistas across the Douro and fresh food and drinks from its scenic bar.

Spa treatments are also high on the agenda: Royal Spa guests can choose from no fewer than 14 different styles of massage alone. A sauna, hammam, Scottish shower and jet pool add to the facilities, as well as indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, two swimming pools and a tennis court. . . . . more

Douro Palace Hotel Resort & Spa
An international master chef—who is also, as it happens, chef to the Portuguese Football Team—has inspired afresh the culinary masterpieces at Douro Palace, a four-star hotel and spa resort in the Douro Valley (and sister hotel to the five-star Douro Royal Valley). Excellent food, together with the panoramic views of the valley and river, and the warm welcome, produce an excellent laid-back holiday in a beautiful part of the world.

In fact the hotel is well placed on the northern banks of the Douro River to make the most of the views—hence the huge windows and glass-fronted balconies which create the angular cubes of the hotel’s less than endearing architecture. Also on the plus side is the rolling, wooded countryside covered in vineyards, and, nearby, the quaint and serene village of Santa Crus do Douro and its warmly welcoming local people. . . . . more
