Fodor's Review

Blending into the landscape just off the N103 from Braga to Gerês, this posh rural spa hotel is the first of its kind in Portugal. Its wood-and-stone construction is an elegant compromise between contemporary style and tradition. The well-appointed guest quarters—all with terraces and stunning views over the River Cávado and the Caniçada reservoir—are in the main building or in 11 bungalows that are set in extensive grounds traversed by a waterfall. The luxurious spa facilities include an ice fountain and Vichy shower; the restaurant, which is known for its outstanding regional and international cuisine, has special spa menus. There's also a minigolf course and children's playroom.
