Vidago Palace Hotel

– ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ –



The Vidago Palace Hotel reopened in 2010 following major refurbishment work. The splendour and sophistication of the past have been preserved intact, along with bygone standards of service and hospitality. Deeply rooted in the collective memory of several generations, the hotel harks back to the way life was lived in the great aristocratic households of the Belle Époque. The best craftsmen in each speciality were taken on to restore to the hotel to the brilliance and aura it possessed from old times. A duo of Portuguese architects - José Pedro Lopes Vieira and Diogo Rosa Lã – masterminded decoration of the interior spaces, while the Thermal SPA and the Club House are the work of the highly regarded architect Álvaro Siza Vieira.  


The hotel retains a wealth of absolutely enchanting details. Its corridors are resplendent with fine materials, sumptuous pieces of handmade furniture, exuberant fabrics sourced from more than 100 suppliers, silk wallpapers with expressive motifs, carefully chosen light fittings and a subtle range of colours. These diverse elements are harmonised to create seductive and welcoming spaces reminiscent of a stately home, full of soul and history. Entering the Vidago Palace Hotel is to be immediately surrounded by a certain voluptuousness… The sense of ease conveyed by grand spaces and ornate furniture of dark carved wood – so typically Portuguese – fits perfectly with chandeliers in the Venetian style and floors of light-coloured mosaic and wooden boards embellished with thick handmade rugs.
