Altis Belem Hotel & Spa

Traverse The Golden Age Of Discovery At The Altis Belem Hotel & Spa

A unique venue among Lisbon hotels, the Altis Belem Hotel and Spa is designed around a theme that is carried out throughout the hotel and grounds. This theme, termed the Golden Age of Discovery, is centered around the ancient Portuguese sea explorations and comes to live through a series of beautiful artwork displayed on wall panels, that charts an intriguing journey following the trade routes of history. Panels feature representations of Mauritania, Arabia, Japan, British controlled India, Brazil and exotic Siam.

Being one of the best hotels in Lisbon, the management has not restricted this display to the hall panels. You will find pieces of the design theme depicted within every room and suite, and the overall effect is one of an obsessive jigsaw puzzle or scavenger hunt, just tantalizing enough to make you want to see it all, bit by bit, right down to the extra clues found within the recreation areas and restaurants.

Lots to See and Do

Once you can tear yourself away from this unique themed display, you might find yourself enjoying the luxury contained in every room. From private balconies overlooking the city, the beautiful gardens on the grounds and the mesmerizing view to the Monument of the Discoveries, to the in house spa, there are so many ways to relax, rejuvenate, and rewind your life to be found in this very special Lisbon hotel.

As you would expect, the best hotels in Lisbon have the best in fine dining to be had in the area, and Altis Belem Hotel and Spa is no exception. Feitoria Restaurant & Wine Bar offers signature dishes courtesy of head chef Jose Cordeiro, that mixes traditional Portuguese cuisine with the exotic flavors of the world, following the route of the Discoveries and creates some truly amazing adventures in experimental gastronomy to be had in all of Lisbon.
