Fodor's Expert Review Six Senses Douro Valley
Quinta do Vale Abrão, Samodães, Viseu, 5100–758, Portugal
This luxurious resort 3 km (2 miles) from Lamego has, with its cutting-edge style, helped the region brush up its image as a fashionable destination. The contemporary architecture is offset by traditional decorative motifs. The hotel's color palette favors subued creams, grays, and browns, which—along with copious amenities—make guest quarters extra comfortable. 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, steam bath, and laconium; the 10 treatment rooms all have river views, as does the 24-hour gym. Wine tastings, cooking classes (for up to four people), and cycling or bus tours can be arranged—check the website for deals.
