The Escapio Hotel Description:

Set in a beautiful 545 acre park, this modern 5 star golf hotel in Sintra near Lisbon (Portugal) is surrounded by gorgeously landscaped beauty, mountains, historical outbuildings and a palace which was originally a 14th century monastery and then a royal retreat, apparently favoured by the Portuguese royal family in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Penha Longa Resort welcomes golfers, honeymooners and families alike with its array of activities, restaurants and sumptuous rooms and suites.

There are three main restaurants and two bars at the Penha Longa Resort.
The Chef at “Il Mercato” is specialized in using little-known and delicious food and wines from all across Italy’s twenty regions.
The “Arola” offers a creative and contemporary kind of Portuguese cuisine, mixing tradition and heritage with an inimitable modern touch. Advises by the Chef Sergi Arola (2 Michelin stars awarded).
At “Midori” guests will find an amazing selection of sushi and sashimi at Sushi Lovers Buffet or traditional Japanese cuisine buffet or à la carte with option for Teppan Yaki (live show cooking).
