Portugal’s Stunning Six Senses Douro Valley is Even More Incredible Now
Portugal’s beautiful Douro Valley should be on everyone’s bucket list once this whole period hopefully ends and we can all travel again. With spectacular scenery, unforgettable train rides, charming architecture and incredible vineyards, the Douro Valley is easily one of the most scenic wine regions in the entire world.
If you want to go there anytime soon, we have some big news for you. Six Senses Douro Valley, probably the best resort in the region, has recently unveiled an all-new Vineyard Wing. This new addition comes with seven new suites, three additional guest rooms, and a generous area dedicated to special events, where up to 70 people may be welcomed.
The stunning 19th-century wine estate can be found in Lamego, right within the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. Guests may choose luxurious accommodations ranging from 430 to 1,140 square feet here, each of them including spacious exterior spaces to sip in those serene Duoro Valley views.
The overall design of this new Vineyard wing includes authentic materials and interesting details, such as vineyard tools of the past and wall art inspired by wooden wine cases. The estate’s aforementioned event space was also designed to feature meeting rooms with views right across the vineyards and ‘writable’ wall sections ideal for interactive meetings.
This area also comes with a large open skylight and a full-height living wall, making it versatile – be it a luxurious cinema, lecture room, reception room, or even meditation space, this place can become whatever you want it to be.
All in all, Six Senses Douro Valley will accommodate you within as many as 60 luxurious guest rooms and suites, with a long list of amenities including three fabulous restaurants, 10 spa treatment rooms as well as indoor and outdoor pools.
There is also a dedicated ‘wine team’ always there to help you, that curates a selection of on- and off-site wine tastings and educational experiences – because, why not?
Feel free to make your own schedule while on location; however, you should definitely make sure river cruises, grape stomping, prehistoric rock art site visits, canyoning, mountain biking, helicopter tours, and tree climbing are part of your activities.
