The Tivoli Palácio de Seteais, the iconic 18th-century palace hotel tucked into the lush greenery of the Sintra Mountains, is the most recent addition to Virtuoso®’s sublime portfolio of properties. The hotel will now be included in the exclusive network that brings together the best luxury travel agencies and partners around the world.
The majestic Tivoli Palácio de Seteais, one of several landmark Tivoli hotels across Portugal and Brazil owned by Thailand’s Minor Hotels, is famous for its first-rate amenities, warm-hearted hospitality and a commitment to local cultural traditions and community values. The property’s charmed setting, a centuries-old palace framed by verdant flora and mountain vistas, has made it the preferred choice for celebrities and high-profile figures in Sintra, defined by romantic extravagance and truly unforgettable stays.
Each of the 30 rooms is appointed uniquely with period furniture, warm colour palettes and further plush details. Ballrooms and halls furnished with tapestries, frescoes and rich wood instill timeless beauty and recollections of royalty. Facilities such as the recently inaugurated Anantara Spa, stunningly restored in the palace's former dovecote overlooking the abundant landscape, and the Seteais Restaurant, where fine dining showcases Portuguese gastronomy and local Colares wines, ensure indulgent experiences to excite all the senses.
