Six Senses Douro Valley’s elegant rooms and suites boast charming vistas of the river, woodlands, and vineyards. Unwind as the sun sets behind the hills from the comfort of your private terrace or wake up to panoramic vistas of both river and vine from the comfort of your bed. Designed with the elegance of Six Senses with a nod to the traditions of an era past, your private haven can also include a hot tub and an impressive wine fridge.
Learn to cook up a storm with a Portuguese cooking lesson or create body scrubs and masks with medicinal herbs, salts and fruit at the Alchemy Bar. Explore the wider valley by bicycle with a private guide or build up a sweat on the tennis and badminton courts. Practice mindfulness during a traditional tile-painting workshop or experience an unforgettable Wine and Dine river cruise with lead winemakers. For your final meal, make it memorable with an intimate candlelit dinner, set among the trees by the lazy riverside.
The luxury spa at Six Senses Douro Valley uses treatments infused with ingredients from the herb and plant garden. With panoramic windows beside the indoor pool, you can experience valley views and hydrotherapy jets. Connect to the picturesque surroundings with a Vinyasa or Yin class on the outdoor yoga deck. Grab a satisfying smoothie at the refreshment bar after a personal training session in the spa’s modern fitness room or a leisurely game of badminton or tennis. Designed with sustainability in mind, the spa beautifully blends responsibly sourced wood, stone and water with Portuguese tradition.
Set within 90-minutes of Oporto International Airport, Six Senses Douro Valley combines beautifully with the vibrant city energy and surf-ready coastlines of Porto.
