The North of Portugal, located about one hour away from Porto's city, has born a Palace that gained a new life, turning up later into a luxury resort. Built-in 1910 at the end of the Edwardian era, inside a wooded property of several hectares, the Vidago Palace Hotel was promptly very much appreciated by the Portuguese elite of the time, taking up shape and transforming itself into an emblematic place for a certain food and art of living certainly in European culture.
The fame of Vidago Palace would keep going strong for several decades, availing national and international projection. After great remodeling works, the hotel reopens with the splendor, the Service, and friendliness that made possible its fame with The Leading Hotels of the World. Deeply rooted in the collective memory of several generations, a legend is reborn.
Currently, the Vidago Palace offers 70 bedrooms and suites, as several wide reception areas: conference and meeting rooms, bars, smoke room, and spacious salons for large events. All of each claims the charm and elegance, in mingling in the comfort of many details such as the quality of the fabrics (more than 100 textile references), the nobility of the materials, the softness of the carpets, the eloquence of wallpapers, the architectural wealth, the precision in the finishes. A dream scale where the art of living makes perfect sense with the local cuisine's exquisite flavors, the Spa's care, the comfortable and elegant halls, and its serene space environment.
Designed by the architect Alvaro Siza Vieira, the new Spa (2500 m2) gives a new dimension to Vidago Palace. Its ultra-modern structure differs radically from the classical architecture of the hotel, both abroad and inside. The surprising encounter between the two styles occurs in their complementarity. The Hotel went from a warm, cozy for a minimalist environment.
Entirely rethought, luxuriously (re)upgraded without taking anything from his heritage Belle Époque, the Vidago Palace aspires to integrate the great European hotels' restricted circle!
