Why Stay Here?
Dating back to 1910, the aristocratic Belle Époque Vidago Palace Hotel carries a legacy of lavish hospitality, comfort and immaculate service into the 21st century following a transformative renovation completed in 2010
Boasting 70 individually designed rooms and suites, Vidago Palace Hotel was reimagined by a dual team of talented Portuguese designers: José Pedro Lopes Vieira and Diogo Rosa Lã, who retained or re-created its elegant period features with a fresh eye for design and detail
The property offers six diverse restaurants. From imaginative fine dining and live jazz in the Grand Ballroom and sunny breakfasts in the glass-roofed Winter Garden, casual rustic fare in The Club House and summertime Pool Bar, there is a choice for every occasion or whim: wedding, celebration or weekend away. Pick the Four Seasons Room for its literary salon-style, or the handsome Wine Cellar for private dining and tastings
At the heart of the resort is Vidago’s ultra-contemporary, Álvaro Siza Vieira-designed Thermal Spa, offering exceptional specialist treatments and programmes devised by expert medics and balneologists, which integrate the curative properties of the estate’s remarkable mineral waters
Vidago Palace Hotel Golf Course opened in 1936, the course was originally designed by Scottish specialist Philip Mackenzie Ross and later renovated and expanded in 2010 by Cameron Powell, who made it even more challenging. The award winning 18-hole par 72 golf course offers raised tees, bunkers and greens and includes a golf academy, 340m driving range, chipping area and two putting greens. A junior golf programme is available
