Hotel description

First opened in April 2014, the complex is in the ideal location for a spa hotel—at the centre of the natural park of Serra da Estrela. From the outdoor swimming pool guests can take in the impressive views across the natural surroundings. Inside an indoor swimming pool, Turkish steam bath and body treatments encourage you to relax. Even in winter, this retreat at the Pousada Serra da Estrela remains appealing, thanks to the nearby ski area. Your stay is rounded off by the friendly and personal service in the Portuguese Pousada.
Pousada: Historic mansion with modern concept
Once a sanatorium was located within the historic building, but in 2013 the 20th century manor house was renovated from the ground up. The new concept of this mountain hotel comes from the award-winning Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto Moura. With 92 rooms, the Pousada da Serra da Estrela promises a relaxing stay in the mountains; 12 of the rooms provide maximum privacy as spacious suites. All rooms are equipped with large bathrooms, air conditioning, minibar and flat-screen TVs. The free Wi-Fi and desks with phone access also provide comfort for working during your trip. The helpful service team can be reached around the clock and are happy to give you tips on excursions to the historical villages, castles and museums in the area.
