Although wine runs through its veins, there are myriad enticing qualities to the recently refurbished Six Senses Douro Valley hotel. Set within 20 acres, exploring the heavenly organic gardens to absorb every sound, scent and colour is essential, but is also only scratching the surface of what this vast outdoor playground, also a UNESCO World Heritage site, has to offer. After an active day, the exceptional and award-winning spa - offering Rose crystal facials, a Citrus energizer and a Complete grape rejuvenation amongst many others - is guaranteed to revive even the weariest of souls.


Wine is at the very core of Six Senses Douro Valley hotel - with daily wine tastings led by the hotel's sommeliers, a cellar and wine list equipped to stir even the most respected of connoisseurs and many a cherished affiliation with the surrounding leading vineyards. The contemporary and elegant bedrooms have been cleverly designed in true Six Senses style - white-washed walls make a refreshing and uplifting back drop to the gentle taupe colour scheme and soft homely furnishings. Culinary delights are a pillar of the Six Senses ethos, with chef Paulo seamlessly producing fresh and local menus from field to plate. Before dinner be sure to enjoy a bottle of something crisp and chilled with the blissful sound of dancing water on the terrace - a beautiful stone paved courtyard, with immense views over the valley.
