    Relax and enjoy at this wine estate and luxury spa resort in the Douro Valley.

    Do you dream of relaxing in a luxury hotel on a wine estate in Portugal? Then you've hit the jackpot with Six Senses Douro Valley. Especially if you're a wine lover who, in addition to enjoying a tipple now and then, longs for a day at the spa, this hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway.

    Six Senses Douro Valley is the ultimate House of Hideaways accommodation for anyone in search of the best version of themselves. A wine estate (quinta) where both your body and soul can find peace. A 'counterpoise' of sorts for your super busy life at home.

    Six Senses Douro Valley is located in Lamego, within the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site of the Portuguese Douro Valley. The estate even dates back to the late nineteenth century, and was then known as Quinta Vale de Abraão. The fairytale manor house has since been renovated and offers all the comfort you could wish for.

    Is your partner a wine lover and do you long for a day at the spa? Then this is the ideal accommodation for a romantic getaway. An added bonus for pet owners is that pets can stay for free and are treated to their own fluffy dog bed and various snacks. They are however not admitted to the restaurant, the spa, or the wine library.

    Treat yourself to a relaxing experience at the Six Senses Spa with an indoor pool and ten treatment rooms, or explore the wine library where you can familiarize yourself with over 700 wines from the region. The spa is very comprehensive and highly professional. Think luxury treatment rooms with views of the valley, a cup of nettle tea with figs during your treatment, the use of pure products from the region such as homemade lemon scrub, ending up in the various saunas and steam rooms you can choose from.

    The restaurant is also of high quality, and despite the luxury of this resort, everyone is super friendly and warm. The products from their own organic garden can be found everywhere; from the Gardener's Choice cocktails to the peach gazpacho with sweet basil ice cream. Enjoy! And you can also look forward to breakfast. This most important meal of the day combines fruit from the garden with local pasteis de nata. Yum!

    This ideal hotel for wine and spa lovers offers a varied range of activities, cultural introductions, and wine adventures. Think a wine & dine tour on the Douro River, visiting local wineries, tree climbing, kayaking, cycling, hiking, or traditional Portuguese tile painting. As you can see, not only can you enjoy glasses of white, red, and rosé here, but you can also fancy yourself a real winemaker. Can you already see yourself blending and bottling your own wine? Go for it! And share your personalised wine at home with friends and family. Cheers! To a fantastic vacation.

    Douro Valley

    This fairy-tale hotel is located near the historic town of Lamego, a 90-minute drive from Porto. As expected from the name, Six Senses Douro Valley is in the valley overlooking numerous vineyards and the Douro River. By the way, Douro is one of the world's oldest wine regions; hence there is plenty to discover for wine lovers. But of course, we don't need to tell you that as a wine fan.

    Suites and standard rooms

    The beautiful rooms are furnished with oak floors, bathrooms with glass walls, and delightfully soft woolen blankets. All rooms are also pleasantly light thanks to the large windows. Room service is ordered with the smartphone in the room, which also operates the lighting, shutters, and TV. In the suites, you can enjoy the view of the Douro from the bath, and the standard rooms have a nice shower. You can sleep in the delightful beds with soft cotton sheets and cozy blankets. And what is that wonderful smell? Those are the locally made lemon soaps!

    Everything with love

    The Six Senses hotel is run with love for its guests and the environment. Many of the products used in cooking are organically grown on the property. The restaurant is of a high standard and despite the luxury of this resort, everyone is super friendly and warm. You will find the products from their own organic garden everywhere; from the Gardener's Choice cocktails to the peach gazpacho with sweet basil ice cream. Want to experience a romantic moment with your sweetheart? Then plan a picnic with a view of the valley. The restaurant's chef and sommelier will put together various delicacies with matching wine(s) for you. Enjoy!

    Spa and swimming pool

    The saltwater pool is surrounded by a terrace with sunbeds and a bar serving light lunch snacks. Prefer to go to the spa? All adult hotel guests are welcome in the heated spa tub. The award-winning Six Senses spa is a delightful retreat with a sauna, herbal bath, infrared sauna, and steam bath. The most beloved treatments are a hot stone massage and almond oil, or an orange and lemon wrap with fruit from the garden. There is also a gym, a nail bar, and a yoga pavilion. Ultimate relaxation!
