The Vibe: Sleek.
The Area: Located directly on the Tagus River in Lisbon’s historic Belém district overlooking the Discoveries Monument. Perfect for the new MAAT Museum, a 5-minute walk away.
The DNA: Altis Belém is a purpose built hotel with bold, dazzling design. The monochrome decor features black granite and white marble and white leather sofas on top of black marble floors. The BSpa by Karin Herzog is the only exclusive spa of the Swiss brand in Portugal, and a space of complete tranquillity. There are indoor and outdoor (rooftop) swimming pools, plus a rooftop terrace. The hotel’s Feitoria Restaurant & Wine Bar has a Michelin star and fuses traditional Portuguese gastronomy with blends of exotic cuisines from Portugal’s discoveries. A cafetaria-style restaurant serves light meals and snacks inside and on the terrace by the river and marina.
Suite-Me-Up: Avantgarde designer rooms come with LCD-TVs, electric curtains, Nespresso machines and modern bathrooms. Most rooms have river views and the Presidential Suite comes with a hot tub on the balcony.
