On the coast of Portugal, in a palazzo-style estate, Penha Longa Resort is situated in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage Natural Park with views of the hills, gardens and lakes of the southern Sintra Mountains. Luxurious without being pretentious, the hotel has 194 rooms and suites, many looking out onto the surrounding golf course, and also offers a range of activities including family entertainment.
Dining at Penha Longa reflects its history as a destination of the royal family in the 16th century. The hotel has recently opened two new restaurants, Spices and Midori. Well known as the oldest Japanese restaurant in the country, Midori has been reimagined, redesigned and reopened as an intimate venue for up to 18 people, while Spices captures the culinary diversity of Asia with selected specialties from Thailand, India, China and Japan. The two additions sit alongside the hotel’s gourmet restaurant LAB, which was recently awarded its first Michelin Star.
