I have been fortunate enough to have stayed on the only two Starwood Luxury Collection Hotels in Portugal: Pine Cliffs Sheraton Algarve and Convento do Espinheiro in Evora.
A total of 90 elegantly decorated rooms, including 5 suites, select your favourite atmosphere and choose between a modern decoration inspired in the ´50s or a room in the 15th century convent. Their common denominator is comfort and refinement.
Interesting for its history, legitimate for its appeal and stand out hour from Lisbon, the hotel has given new life to a fifteenth century convent, considered a national landmark, where essential nobles all through history formed Portugal’s fate. Once a convent where kings have passed by, it’s now a top class luxury hotel in Evora, considered one of the best wine regions in the world.
Overwhelming the Alentejo plain lies Évora, a city of exceptional excellence, and named an UNESCO World Heritage site, it is a fortune with much to offer historically and culturally, as well as in gastronomy.
The whitewashed design of Convento do Espinheiro Hotel and Spa, Evora, is set amongst blue skies with puffy mists and encompassing field verdure. Once a religious community going back to the XV century, this extravagant hotel considered a National Monument is near the fortified city of Evora, classified by UNESCO as a “World Heritage City”.
Experience individual treatment and world-class extravagance at the spa facilities, offering the most progressive innovations and treatments, at Diana Spa. You can take a relaxed swim in the outside swimming pool, overlooking rolling hills. A fine Mediterranean restaurant welcomes you at Divinus Restaurant, their rich gourmet restaurant. Stroll through a pathway of candlelit curves until you achieve your select table, put aside for a night of fine dining.
Retreat to one of 90 refined visitor rooms and stir to captivating perspectives of moving green slopes and encompassing excellence. Exquisite materials, fine furniture and world-class service are normal for every visitor room and suite at Convento do Espinheiro Hotel and Spa, Evora.
