This multi-faceted resort is set around an elegantly-restored 19th century manor house. The palatial house is the center of hotel activity, and connects to modern structures incorporating the spa and guest room annexes.
There are 56 accommodation offerings, ranging from standard and deluxe rooms (40 to 50sqm), to a variety of suite (80 to 105 sqm). The resort also includes one-, two- and three-bedroom villas, some with private pools and gardens.
Gastronomic experiences are a special feature of the hotel, with venues as diverse as Wine Library and Terrace, and the Quinta Bar and Lounge. Regional favorites are the focus of The Restaurant, with Executive Chef Paulo Matos supervising Portuguese-inspired fine dining in the Dining Room.
Natural elements of water, stone and wood are the theme of the Six Senses Spa offers 10 treatment rooms. The 2,200 sqm facility includes a heated indoor pool with water jets, outdoor pool, refreshment bar, gym and ten treatment rooms.
