Hotel description

Cascais is a traditional, popular vacation resort on the Portuguese coast, about 30 kilometers from Lisbon. The former fishing village is famous for its wonderful beaches and picturesque streets - and for its citadel, now home to the the grandest luxury hotel around.
Exciting design meets old architecture
Whilst renovating the old fortress, architects Gonçalo Byrne and David Sinclair were careful to retain as much of this historic structure as possible but still create a modern, minimalist-style 5 star hotel. The atmosphere is unique, elegant and contemporary but relaxed. Its fascinating combination of old architecture and cutting-edge design alone is worth a visit.
Wellness, fitness, enjoyment
As well as its breathtaking location and design, guests of the Pestana Cidadela Cascais - Pousada & Art District can also enjoy a range of leisure activities: watersports, golf, climbing, tennis, the beach and then a relaxing treatment in the hotel’s own spa. Other facilities include a gym and pool as well as a stylish hotel bar and a restaurant that has a good selection of vegetarian meals.
