Hotel Quinta da Marinha is a luxury resort situated in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It has an 18-hole golf course, full health club and spa.
After the extensive re styling in 2014, the Hotel has become more contemporary, making guests feel even more at home.
As the reception area is the first point of contact a visitor has with us, we started there, balancing our desire for more personalization with the requirements of hospitality. We’ve ensured it’s now a brighter environment, adding a fashionable grey that combines perfectly with the lighting and the new soft tones. And we’ve carried on that desire to enrich the visitor experience throughout the project.”
The lobby area also benefits from the addition of six paintings by the late Portuguese artist Ana Safer, in which she tells a story of Portuguese wines.
Each of Hotel Quinta’s air-conditioned rooms has a spacious balcony with panoramic views of the golf course or the Sintra mountain range. Rooms also include a minibar, flat-screen TV and a private bathroom with Plantation amenities.
