Where You’re Staying

The hotel stands out for its unique architecture which blends in with the landscape. The resort is built from schist (a coarse rock) and glass on a terraced hill that cascades down almost to the river’s edge. The streamlined design continues with the guest rooms, which have a soft color palette and floor-to-ceiling windows. The furniture is equally sophisticated.

Where to Dine

The hotel has its own herb and vegetable garden and its bounty is served in the two on-site dining venues. Raiva showcases the region’s cuisine and local specialties, such as cured Iberian ham and port. The heart of A Terra Bar & Canteen is a wood-fired grill. The restaurant focuses on tapas and small bites, as well as Portuguese wines and cocktails.

Where to Relax

Go for a swim in the stunning infinity pool which appears to float above the river. There’s also an indoor pool. The sleek spa contains a hydrotherapy circuit, sauna, and Turkish bath. For more pampering, try a massage, facial, or a quiet bath. Yoga is also available.

What To Do

Explore the river on a kayak or stand up paddle board, or simply dive in for a cooling dip. Spend an afternoon tasting regional wines and ports or enjoy a picnic on the Ilha dos Amores.
