- See the City
Get out and about in Lisbon's colourful, charming and eclectic bairros, or districts, spread across seven hills. The Hotel's location in the heart of the city makes it the perfect starting point for a day of exploration.
- Oceanside Bliss
If you love seafood and life on the water, Lisbon is for you. Make sure to check out the Hotel's Seafood Sunday Brunch, where you can feast on lobster, razor clams, carabineiros, oysters and more.
- Romantic Itineraries
Let us arrange memorable experiences for your first night and day as newlyweds: a Champagne breakfast in the privacy of your suite, a romantic candlelit dinner for two, a chef-prepared picnic basket for two, and various special occasion packages.
- Good Sports at Guincho Beach
Portugal's surf scene is strong. Sign up for a surfing lesson to improve your skills and learn the local breaks, or linger over a picnic lunch while you watch the action.
- Monumental Sights
Lisbon is alive with history and culture, and full of fascinating monuments, including the Cristo Rei, standing 28 metres tall, on top of a 78-metre tower; the Monument of Discoveries, celebrating the city's seafaring history; and the Castelo de Sao Jorge (Castle of St George), situated atop Lisbon's highest hill above the Alfama neighbourhood's maze of alleyways.
- Art Lovers' Delight
Some of the city's most renowned artwork is right here at the Hotel. Take a guided tour of the museum-calibre collection or explore it at your leisure using the Hotel's app.
In the fairytale enclave of Sintra, less than an hour outside Lisbon, you'll find Portugal's first castles, magnificent palaces, beautiful parkland and aristocratic retreats. The town was a summer residence of the royal family and a favourite destination for wealthy European nobles. The coastal town of Cascais puts you in the midst of mansions, yachts, a restored fort and sheltered, sandy beaches. Watch fishermen bringing in their catch and enjoy a fresh cataplana lunch.
Tour the city of seven hills with a professional photographer who will share tips for capturing the city's best light – and will also document the romance of your day with candid shots of you are your love.
For a laid-back day in the country, head southeast to the Alentejo region. Sunsoaked and slower-paced, its gently rolling plains are home to vineyards, olive groves and forests of cork oaks. The mid-May to early July cork harvest here produces about half the world's supply. September's grape harvest brings boisterous grape stomping, followed by olive picking in late fall. Explore spectacular fortified hill towns like Monsaraz or Estremoz, and Vila Viçosa, full of houses constructed from local white marble. The must-see Evora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, holds unusual sights and shopping in its picturesque winding streets.
Enjoy a romantic evening sailing along the historic north shore of Lisbon's Tagus River. Sit back and enjoy the historic shoreline's historic sites: Praça do Comércio was the original maritime entry to Lisbon, and Belém is the point from which explorer Vasco da Gama departed for India in 1497.
After a day of exploring, return to your home away from home: the Royal Suite, a peaceful retreat decorated in the elegant classical style, with soft taupe and mauve tones, and furnished with restored pieces from the Foundation Ricardo Espírito Santo Silva.
Enjoy a little playtime together – maybe even a little friendly competition – taking a day for a round of golf, surfing the Guincho Coast's best breaks, and watching the wind fill your sails while the sunshine bounces off the water's surface.
