Thinking of a trip to Portugal in the summer? If so, you’re not alone. Tourism is booming as people come searching for sun, sea, food and a great nightlife.

Whilst many of you will be visiting Portugal purely for pleasure, others might be on business, or interested in exploring investment opportunities in the region.

Whatever the reason for your visit, you’re looking for somewhere memorable to stay. With this in mind, here are five of the very best hotels in Portugal.

Pine Cliffs Luxury Resort, Algarve

Just 30 minutes away from Faro Airport, Pine Cliffs is one of the Algarve’s premium hotels. It has a perfect position with expansive 72-hectare grounds, filled with white-washed stone villas and decorations produced by local artisans.

Golfers can enjoy a spectacular cliff-top course while guests can also relax by the pool or enjoy a luxurious spa. And if you fancy a dip in the ocean, all you have to do is take the elevator and the famed Falesia Beach will be right there waiting.

When it’s time to eat you’ll be spoilt for choice with 12 eateries and bars to choose from including a spectacular cliff-top bar.

The Ivens, Lisbon

Set in the bustling capital of Lisbon, the Ivens offers a tropical oasis in the city, with tropical plants, parrots and luxurious furnishings. It has more than 85 rooms across five floors, each one offering the height of modern luxury and a choice of courtyard or city views—making it one of the best hotels in Portugal.

Among the amenities in the hotel is a courtyard, fitness centre and several eateries including the Rocco which is fast earning a reputation for itself as one of the finest restaurants in Lisbon.

Bela Vista Hotel & Spa

This beautiful 19th-century house was converted into a hotel in the 1930s. Despite a recent renovation, it still retains its old-world-charm with wrought iron gates at the entrance and bedrooms filled with old-fashioned artefacts.

Bela Vista offers a spa and swimming pool, and is primely positioned near one of the best beaches in the Algarve. Guests can also enjoy fine dining with delicious local cuisine whilst looking out onto the spectacular Mediterranean.

In the grounds, you’ll find a six-bedroom villa. A new two-story extension has also added a further 20 bedrooms overlooking the swimming pool.

Torel Aventgarde, Porto

Porto’s second city is often billed as the quirky, cooler alternative to the capital and the same can be said of its hotels. While it may not look much from the outside, the lobby is spectacular, filled with art, with walls made from cork to celebrate Portugal’s status as a major exporter.

Torel Aventgarde has two swimming pools and views over the Douro River. Its restaurant is called Digby, named after Sir Kenholm Digby who invented the modern wine bottle. Everything is within walking distance, although you may want to store up as much energy as possible if you intend to take on any of Porto’s famous hills.

Torel 1884, Porto

Another Torel Hotel in Porto is the 1884. Set in the historic city centre in a former bank, this neoclassical hotel includes design cues from all around the world. It includes quirky works of art, with one painting of a woman smoking an actual paintbrush and a banana leaf lining one wall. At the top is a classical-looking library while at the bottom you can relax and dine in a bar bistro. It has a comfortable, classical feel. At times, you might be forgiven for thinking you’ve strayed into a classical country house. This makes for a truly unique and luxurious stay in Portugal’s second city.

Now you’re acquainted with some of today’s best hotels in Portugal, it’s time to plan your trip. With their luxurious rooms, prime location and five-star amenities, any one of these abodes will be sure to make your visit a memorable one.
