Andrew and I recently returned from an absolutely amazing trip to Lisbon Portugal. We spent a couple days in the city on our own and then welcomed our golf guests from the US for a fun three days of activities.
For the first two nights, Andrew and I stayed at the Alma Lusa Hotel. This boutique style hotel is located in one of the most beautiful squares of Lisbon - Praça do Município. The location, charm, style and grace of this hotel made it the perfect respite for us while visiting this magnificent city. Our room was spacious with contemporary fixtures and equipped with a Luxury Heavenly Bed.
We also had the pleasure of dining in the Defino Restaurant for breakfast each morning and also stopped in for a late night drink one of the evenings. Bruno the manager took time out of his busy evening to give us an overview on the history of port and let us taste some fantastic samples.
Once our guests from the States arrived, our group of sixteen people checked into the Olissippo Lapa Palace Hotel. This 19th century 5-star hotel featured lush gardens and was set on a hilltop overlooking the Tagus River. The large rooms at The Lapa Palace included a sitting area and our room included a balcony with a view of the beautiful pool area.
Breakfast was served each morning in The Restaurant Hotel Lapa where we sat at outdoor tables in the terrace garden — the perfect location for a wonderful cup of Portuguese coffee.
Following our stay in the Algarve area, we returned to Lisbon for a one night stay at The Myriad by Sana Hotel. This was the perfect location for us with it’s proximity to the airport are lively restaurant area. This contemporary hotel was located right on the Tagus River and all of our rooms featured a corner room with panoramic views. The decor was ultra-modern with a 1970’s flair and featured many upgraded amenities. It was nice to be able to walk to dinner for our last night in Lisbon.
We truly feel we hit the jackpot with all three of these hotels and we are certainly looking forward to returning soon.
