Over the years, Portugal has become one of the most popular destinations in all of Europe. From eco-friendly hotels to oceanfront rooms and open ceilings for star gazing, there’s no shortage of luxury hotels to book while you’re in the country. Choose from sprawling villas with private pools or opt for a more secluded stay built among the trees. Here are just some of our favorite luxury hotels in Portugal.
L’AND Vineyards Resort
Surrounded by vineyards and oak trees, L’AND Vineyards Resort was built by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan. Made of wood and slate, this hotel is a place of natural beauty and tranquility. Located in the region of Alentejo, guests are able to choose from one of their 22 suites with views of the vineyards. We recommend a stay in a Sky View Suite – each of which has an open ceiling to gaze at the stars while you fall asleep. Sky View Suites also include a welcome drink, massage and wine-tasting.
Experience a delicious meal crafted with local ingredients at the L’AND Restaurant with dishes such as pork terrine and octopus salad. Or head to the Spa by Caudalíe for a relaxing day of wellness and beauty. Spend your evenings exploring the vineyard gardens or take a romantic balloon ride over Alentejo after a wine-tasting.

Areias do Seixo
Located less than one hour from Lisbon in Costa de Prata, Areias do Seixo is a haven away from the bustle of big towns. Surrounded by pine trees, the sea and the dunes, this truly is “a magical place in a magical setting”. Experience the quiet atmosphere in one of their rooms or villas. Each room uses geothermal energy and solar power for electricity, with some even being built around trees. We recommend a stay in one of their villas for a private retreat fully stocked with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, an outdoor pool, terrace and office space.
Reserve a spa day for yourself to let go of some stress and detox for a few hours. Or enjoy a home-cooked meal at the hotel’s restaurant. Sustainability is a large part of Areias do Seixo – the kitchen uses fish from the market and herbs from their own garden. Waste management and energy efficiency are also important factors throughout the hotel. To book your next stay at Areias do Seixo, visit their website HERE.
Bela Vista Hotel & Spa
This 19th century hotel first opened in 1934 with the same beachfront position and old-town charm throughout the decades. Located on the coast of Algarve, Bela Vista Hotel & Spa keeps its original decor of wooden ceilings and wall tiles along with bold colors and simple design. Guests may choose from a variety of room options such as as the junior suite or deluxe room.
Activities on the hotel grounds also include yacht cruises, golf games and dinners for pairing food with wine. Spend your evening at the hotel’s Vista Restaurante for a decadent meal of both national and Mediterranean cuisines while gazing out at the ocean. Or take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool before taking a stroll down the hotel’s private beach. To book a stay at Bela Vista Hotel & Spa, visit their website HERE.
