Tivoli Hotels & Resorts has revealed plans for a property in the Alentejo region of Portugal in the historic city of Évora, joining the brand’s other hotels in Portugal, Brazil and Qatar.
The Tivoli Évora Ecoresort, scheduled to launch in the third quarter of 2018, will be a nature retreat boasting gorgeous scenery and unique cultural experiences.
Currently operating as the Ecorkhotel, Évora – Suites & Spa, the property is located on the lush plains of Portugal’s south-central Alentejo region, just a five-minute drive from the historic centre of Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a one-hour drive from the capital Lisbon.
Surrounded by age-old cork oak and olive trees, the property is designed in sustainable contemporary style.
Soft architectural lines blend perfectly into the verdant landscape, with 56 suites carefully placed around the 38,000 square metre grounds, providing ultimate privacy and tranquillity for guests.
All suites are warmly decorated with natural elements such as wool and cork, with outside areas for relaxing amid the sounds of nature.
As part of a refurbishment programme, an exclusive new villa with nine guest rooms and a private outdoor swimming pool will be added to the resort.
The eco-resort also has a spa providing pure serenity for the senses.
Treatment rooms, an indoor swimming pool, sauna, Turkish bath and fully equipped fitness room will be available for guests to enjoy.
Making the most of relaxing inspirational surroundings, the hotel will also focus on personalised wellness programmes, incorporating both traditional and innovative treatments with healthy eating, exercise and nature-based activities.
“We are very pleased to announce the first Tivoli Hotel in the Alentejo region and the brand’s eleventh property in Portugal.
“This eco-resort is a perfect complement to our portfolio in the country and represents our arrival in a fascinating region where tourism has grown sustainably.
“This launch is an important step in the expansion of Tivoli and Minor Hotels in Portugal,” stated Marco Amaral, vice president of operations and development in Europe and South America for Minor Hotels, the parent company of Tivoli Hotels & Resorts.
Tivoli Hotels & Resorts is celebrating 85 years of hospitality in 2018.
Currently operating 13 hotels and resorts in Portugal, Brazil and Qatar, the brand is planning to launch more new properties in Qatar and Brazil before the end of the year.
