Vila Real, Portugal
On site measurement
The Vidago Palace Hotel reopened in 2010 following major refurbishment work. The splendour and sophistication of the past have been preserved intact, along with bygone standards of service and hospitality. Deeply rooted in the collective memory of several generations, the hotel harks back to the way life was lived in the great aristocratic households of the Belle Époque. The best craftsmen in each speciality were taken on to restore to the hotel to the brilliance and aura it possessed from old times. A duo of Portuguese architects - José Pedro Lopes Vieira and Diogo Rosa Lã – masterminded decoration of the interior spaces, while the Thermal SPA and the Club House are the work of the highly regarded architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. The Vidago Palace Spa has been voted the Best International Spa in the Condé Nast Traveler Awards 2016.
