Brand new hotel launches in Portugal 1st September

The Oitavos is located just 20 minutes west of Lisbon overlooking the West Atlantic coastline. Set within the Sintra Cascais National Park it will be the first luxury hotel developed on the Quinta da Marinha Original estate. With one month to go, bookings are now open.  Whether you are looking to relax and unwind, explore the natural scenery or to enjoy a round of golf, The Oitavos two night package is a perfect weekend escape. The package includes two nights accommodation in a superior room with breakfast for €475 per room. 

The contemporary hotel is set amongst sand dunes and pine trees and is adjacent to the award winning Arthur Hills-designed Oitavos Dunes golf course, ranked 88th in the top 100 courses in the world by Golf Magazine. Its bold design, sleek lines and elegantly simple interiors focus attention outwards. The result is a hotel which embraces rather than competes with its natural surroundings.

The hotel will have 142 oversized guest rooms. All superior and premium rooms will offer 60 square metres of space and have their own balconies offering sea views and vistas over the golf course. Five premium corner rooms will also be on offer with large wrap around decks and dramatic Atlantic ocean views. The hotel also has 14 junior suites with extra large balconies perfect for entertaining up to ten people and two individual suites, the Atlantic and Oitavos Suites. The Atlantic features a separate living and dining area and either one or two bedrooms, located on the Northwest corner of the top floor with excellent views. The Oitavos is an expansive 120m2 one bedroom suite also offering a separate living and dining area and a spectacular 60m2 balcony directly overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and golf course.

During their stay guests will be able to enjoy numerous dining experiences including a gourmet dining room, a sushi bar, tea lounge and casual restaurant with open air terrace. The full service destination spa, inspired by the ocean, will use natural and organic treatment products and offers a holistic wellness approach.  There will be 10 treatment rooms, an indoor and outdoor seawater swimming pool and steam and sauna with views out to the preserved dunes.
In addition, the hotel will feature a state-of-the-art conference centre for up to 300 people; this will have dedicated facilities for groups including a separate check in desk and dining facilities. There will be five additional meeting and boardrooms catering for up to 150 people. Each offers space, comfort, daylight views and the best technical support ensuring meetings are handled efficiently and with ease.

Set within the family owned Quinta da Marinha Original estate, hotel guests are guaranteed an intimate and intensely private holiday location. The exceptional sporting estate boasts one of Portugal’s leading equestrian centres, a Health and Racket Club and the Oitavos Dunes golf course – one of the world’s top 100 golf courses in GOLF Magazine’s 2009 Top 100 Courses in the World. Commenting on the creation of The Oitavos, Luis Silverio, CEO of Quinta da Marinha Original, says “The Oitavos is a luxury hotel at the pinnacle of contemporary design and innovation, offering a modern outlook of Portugal yet rooted in Portuguese heritage. The hotel is the culmination of the Champalimaud family’s vision, having first purchased the land during the 1920s, and completes this exceptional sporting estate”.
