Accommodations

View Rooms & Rates

Awash in grey and white tones with and occasional splashes of color, unique works of art decorate the 125 guestrooms and suites, creating individual, almost gallery-like spaces. Book one of the Double Art District guestrooms that feature balconies for a view of the fortress, or a Suite Sea View for panoramas of the Atlantic and a “surprise” from the chef. The palatial Presidential Suite delivers space, a VIP experience, and, best of all, works by Nadir Afonso, one of Portugal’s most famous contemporary painters.

Many rooms are interconnecting, and the suites are a good option for families. Room service is available, and a 24-hour reception desk means there’s always someone on call to deal with any queries you may have.
