Five Lisbon Luxury Hotels to Sleep Like a VIP
Lisbon is on top of the world these days: one of the best european cities to travel, a delicious gastronomy, an exclusive way of hosting. To prove it, here are 5 of the most luxurious hotels that know the perfect way to combine exclusiveness and the special magic Lisbon offers everyone who comes to visit.
Four Seasons Ritz Lisboa
Considered one of the best hotels in town, the Four Seasons is a good example of how modernity and tradition can come together, creating a special and exclusive environment. Situated at the top of one of the city's seven hills, Four Seasons offers a privileged view of the old town. The river, the castle and the fabulous Eduardo VII Park take part of the scenario. Indoors the hotel is decorated with 18th century furniture replicas along with an impressive modern art collection. Not to be missed: the SPA, with an indoor pool, a relaxing lounge and magical packs of multi-sensory experiences.
Olissipo Lapa Palace
Situated at the heart of one of Lisbon's most charming neighbourhoods, Olissipo Lapa Palace is a 19th century palace luxuriously adapted into a contemporary hotel. Amongst the sub-tropical gardens bathed with sun light, the pool's relaxing environment or the astonishing view from the balcony, time will have to be well managed in order not skip any detail. Not to be missed: The pillow menu from where you can choose the best pillow for a restful night sleep.
Pousada de Lisboa
Once this was a royal palace. Situated right beside the old city port at Terreiro do Paço, this was the perfect place for the king to watch his fleet sail away and discover new worlds. Today it preserves its charm and its luxurious environment due to the recent restoration work that allowed this Hotel to open its doors last year. The privileged location combined with an exclusive Portuguese cuisine, signed by the awarded chef Tiago Bonito makes this one of the best hotels to have a real Lisbon luxury experience. Not to be missed: the rooftop swimming pool and its beautiful river view.
Altis Belém Hotel
Two awards are already part of this recent hotel history: Portugal's Leading Design Hotel 2015 and Luxury Romantic Hotel 2015. Situated near the city's marina the Altis was build to honour the 16th century Discovery Period. Every room is exclusive, offering a special homage to these historical glory days through an illustrated panel that gives a unique environment. Not to be missed: the Hotel's restaurant Feitoria awarded with a Michelin Star.
A perfect combination of luxury and sophistication, Myriad Sana came to Lisbon to make a difference in the city's hotel offering reality. It surely was successful. The whole hotel is an opened window to the water thanks to its privileged location at the edge of the river, in Parque das Nações. Not to be missed: the view. Wherever you are in the hotel, the infinity of the waterfront is always on your horizon.
