The Yeatman Review

This luxury resort cascades down a grassy hillside in Gaia, ensuring fine views of Porto—whether from your room or underwater in the heated outdoor pool. Inaugurated in 2010 by a port company, it claims to be Portugal's first true wine hotel. All Portuguese regions are represented in the cellar, where chef Ricardo Costa (formerly of the famed Casa da Calçada restaurant in Amarante) organizes themed dinners each Thursday, but also in guest rooms: each is decorated by a different producer. (In one suite, the bed is inside a wine barrel.) And, of course, there's a vinotherapie spa. Express trains stop 200 meters (656 feet) away; the metro is a 15-minute walk.
