Fodor's Review

This luxurious resort 3km (2 mi) from Lamego has with its cutting-edge style helped the region brush up its image as a fashionable, not fusty destination. The contemporary architecture is offset with traditional decorative motifs. Public areas are in deep pinks and browns while guest quarters, which are bursting with amenities, are more often in cream and white. Outside, wooden decking around the pool enables you to revel in the spectacular hillside setting. Inside, the huge spa has a heated pool with water jets, two saunas, steambath, and laconium; treatment rooms all have river views, as does the 24-hour gym. Wine tastings, cookery classes (for up to four people) and cycling or bus tours can be arranged—check the Web site for deals.
