Fodor's Review

If you count wine among your passions, a stay at The Yeatman Hotel should be on your Portugal itinerary. An elegant retreat that is serene but not boring, the 70-room hotel is set in Vila Nova da Gaia overlooking the Douro River with sweeping views of picturesque Porto. The brainchild of Adrian Bridge, CEO of leading port producer Taylor Fladgate, fine wine is a recurrent theme, from the decanter-shaped outdoor infinity pool to the vinotherapy spa offering a red wine bath said to improve circulation. Wine producers across Portugal have partnered with The Yeatman, each adopting a room to decorate with items representing their winery. In the cellar, Wine Director Beatriz Machado presides over a 20,000-bottle collection; guests can take sommelier-guided tours from 4 pm to 6 pm. All rooms offer panoramic views and private terraces. The hotel has an impressive formal restaurant as well as the more casual Dick’s Bar, where you can watch the sunset over the Douro while enjoying a juicy burger and innovative cocktails. Just outside The Yeatman are several port lodges awaiting exploration and a short walk down the hill to the river brings you to sidewalk cafes and a path that passes through a nature reserve on its way to the beaches of the Atlantic.
