Weave your way through the beautiful Portuguese countryside and emerge from the woods to discover Vidago Palace Hotel. This stunning belle-epoque style palace is over 100 years old, having reopened in 2010 after a major refurbishment.

The inside of the palace provides chic, modern luxury, while also maintaining the grandeur of the original building. The Vidago Palace Hotel has a long legacy of distinction and has been named as one of the ‘Leading Hotels of the World’. What’s more, the hotel has also been awarded ‘Best Luxury Hotel’ at the TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Awards and ‘Best Luxury Destination Spa’ at the World Luxury Spa Awards.

A utopia for relaxation, the spa offers medical and beauty treatments, as well as unique thermal fountains. Your wellness journey will be tailor-made for you, and you can choose between half-day or full day treatment packages. To ensure your spa day is as effective as possible, personalised packages and a range of made-to-measure treatments are available to enjoy.

If you’re looking to get a bit more active, a vast park surrounds the palace with 100-year-old trees, paths and trails, and a host of enchanting water features. The location of the palace, just 30 minutes from the Douro Valley, provides unrivalled opportunities for vineyard and nature tours, allowing you to get to know this majestic landscape on even closer terms.

Then, there is the historic Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course. Redesigned by famed course architects, Cameron & Powell from an original by Mackenzie Ross built in 1936, the hotel was named ‘Portugal's Best Golf Hotel’. Also providing six restaurants, an indoor and outdoor pool, and a fantastic kids club, Vidago Palace Hotel is a dream come true for families and couples alike.
