Grande Real Villa Itália Hotel & Spa,
Rua Frei Nicolau de Oliveira, 100
Spa & Leisure
Located right by the sea, the Real Spa Therapy includes more than 1000 square metres of relaxing space inspired by Roman bath-houses. Dedicated to your emotional and physical health it draws its main healing properties from the sea water with a thalassotherapy circuit pool as well as 10 treatments rooms, a gym, relaxation area, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi, jet shower, Vichy shower, and cocoon amongst other things. It must be noted that it is mandatory to wear a swimming cap in the thalasso circuit and the spa is only available for people over the age of 16.
Making the most of the wealth of each region and its natural ingredients, the spa promotes effective results as well as relaxation. Typically, Portuguese elements such as basil, rosemary, honey, olive oil, and orange are added to the treatments to enhance the intended results, which is a charming and individual touch.
Hotel & Accommodation
Formerly the home of Italian King Umberto II while in exile, this regal villa is quite literally over the road from the beach in the cosmopolitan town of Cascais. As you might expect from a luxury resort on the coast, the rooms take in views of the Atlantic Ocean, which can also be seen from the pool, the restaurant, the terraces … you get the picture. The interiors are modern, but reflect the building’s elaborate past with marble floors and large windows juxtaposed with densely textured fabrics and detailed furnishings.
When the climate and location are as beautiful as this, it is only fitting that there are three restaurants. The La Terraza Restaurant-Bar serves cocktails and snacks, and Belvedere Ristorante invites you to travel through a variety of flavours in an authentic Italian feast for the senses. Meanwhile, the Navegantes Restaurant is open daily from 7:00 am to 10:30 am and serves buffet breakfast.
