Located in the heart of the majestic Douro Valley, the world’s oldest demarcated wine region, the Six Senses Douro Valley is placed in a beautifully renovated 19th-century manor house with glorious gardens, woodlands, and sweeping panoramas. Having a philosophy of creating unforgettable experiences but always respecting the place where it is located, Six Senses Douro Valley combines elegancy with the reality of the region’s history, offering breathtaking sights.
A Best-kept Secret Now Coming To Light
For a home away from home, the nine Valley Rooms and Suites and two Pool Villas are available to book now for July 1 onwards, offering connected rooms, lounge spaces and generous gardens with pools. The team behind this incredible project also spruced up the spa, gave the Open Kitchen a wholesome makeover and added a host of new artisan experiences and vineyard tours. Everyone is welcome.
Sometimes Nature Is All You Need
A sense of history that’s still in the making. A setting of vine-covered rolling hills and the majestic River Douro. Come and stay in the world’s oldest demarcated wine region at a beautifully renovated 19th-century manor house with glorious gardens, woodlands, and sweeping panoramas. The town of Porto and charming heritage villas and other Portugal destinations are close by.
A Season For Everyone and Everything
There’s no bad time to visit the Douro Valley as there is always something on offer that should suit your interests. Celebrations and seasons are accompanied by log fires and sunny dispositions. And there is always the pleasure of discovering an amazing wine, especially to sit back and relax with a stunning Port.
Contemporary Décor with a Nod to a Bygone Era
71 guest accommodations including bedrooms with panoramic river views, spacious suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies, and wooden bridges leading to secret gardens. All are sensitively refurbished to blend traditional highlights with the Six Senses natural style. Tucked away in the gardens is Six Senses’ best-kept secret for larger groups: a One or Two Bedroom Villa, each with a private swimming pool. Just next door, in a beautifully renovated wine lodge, there are nine new Valley Rooms and Suites, which may be reserved individually or together to offer up to nine bedrooms, shared lounge with cozy fireplace, gardens with shaded gazebos, and a shared swimming pool and vitality pool.
Embracing The Elements of Water, Stone and Wood
Portuguese tradition meets the elements of water, stone and wood in a great setting for rural relaxation. Take a dip in the indoor pool with floor-to-ceiling garden views, sink deeper into relaxation with underwater sound therapy and massage jets, or go for full restoration in the vitality pool. New treatments at Six Senses spa in Portugal include color therapy and Cryotherapy, try your hand at alchemy or go back to your roots and venture outside for forest bathing. Find your way to fitness with a choice of on demand classes and expert personal trainers. This is unabashed wellness at its best.
Let The Drama of the Fine Dining Unfold
The dining options at Six Senses Portugal restaurants are a celebration of the region with much of the produce coming from the verdant valley and surrounding countryside. An organic garden of vegetables and herbs is located right on the estate. Fresh ingredients are harvested only as needed, assuring ultimate freshness and flavor.
Immerse Yourself In The Valley Life
The Douro Valley is not just for looking at: explore and get involved in it! From Douro Valley river cruises to stomping the port wine grapes, and prehistoric rock art sites to canyoning, mountain biking and helicopter tours of Douro Valley. When was the last time you climbed a tree?
Keeping Everything Sustainable
Being a UNESCO World Heritage Site means all of the region’s stakeholders have a strict obligation to its 3,500 botanical species. Six Senses Douro Valley is continuing to protect and regenerate a 10-acre (4-hectare) woodland on the property, highlighting its commitment to sustain the environment and beautiful old growth trees. The entire team is committed to reducing any negative impacts, and fostering positive outcomes. With that in mind, they want to spread the word and inspire change in others too. Therefore, Six Senses warmly invite you to visit the Earth Lab to see the good things they have been up to and learn more about the projects supported by their Sustainability Fund.
