Located on a hilltop in the upscale Santo Amaro residential neighborhood, the Pestana Palace Hotel is a set apart from the busier parts of the city, while still being close to all of the places of interest. Built in 1907, this 5-star hotel was originally the private villa of the Marquis of Valle Flor, who was a wealthy cocoa magnate. It is one of the best examples of Romantic Revival architecture in Portugal, and is listed as a National Monument.
The hotel consists of the main villa, which includes four suites that have retained the elegance and architectural features of the original villa, as well as two wings of rooms that were added amidst the property’s extensive gardens. This gem is truly an oasis in the heart of the city. For more information and reservations, click here.
