The outstanding choice of luxury hotels in Lisbon is exemplified by five-star properties like the Pestana Palace Hotel, which in fact is a classified National Monument. Another historic property, Olissippo Lapa Palace, can also claim a noble heritage. The city’s top-end accommodation options extend to the striking Myriad by SANA Hotels and the Sheraton Lisboa Hotel & Spa, two of the tallest hotels in the Portuguese capital. The swanky Tivoli Lisboa enjoys a privileged position on Avenida da Liberdade where several upscale fashion boutiques are located. At the top of this avenue, overlooking Parque Eduardo VII, is the landmark Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisboa. If you’re looking for luxury hotel accommodation outside the city head for the coast beyond the resort town of Cascais and the Fortaleza do Guincho. This chic boutique bolthole boasts a Michelin-starred restaurant! Nearer the resort is the Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel & Spa, built where an old palace once stood. The spa facility here is one of the best in the country. Back in the city centre is a new edition to Lisbon’s luxury hotel portfolio, Pousada de Lisboa, a fabulous property fashioned out of premises dating from the 18th century. And another historic building refurbished into stunning accommodation is the Palácio do Governador, located in Belém.
