The Vibe: Two worlds collide, romantic adult-only couples in the rooms and glamping tent, while families resort to the spacious self-contained 3 or 4-bedroom villas and townhouses, some with private pools.
The Area: Costa de Prata (Silver Coast), in the dunes at unspoilt Praia da Mexilhoeira Beach, about an hour’s drive north of Lisbon.
The DNA: Areias do Seixo is a sophisticated charm design hotel set in a futuristic concrete and glass eco-structure. Inside dark wood floors, a polished concrete bar, sinuous wood stove, sparkling chandeliers, mismatched colourful chairs and chunky wooden tables set the tone. Room and villa interiors feature four-poster beds, jacuzzi bath tubs, outdoor showers, chandeliers and fireplaces. The ink-green infinity pool, surrounded by sun loungers and a Balinese bed, overlooks the hotel’s vegetable gardens.
Suite-Me-Up: You can’t go wrong here. The 16 rooms are vast and romantic, while the newer villas offer even more space, sleep up to 6, and come with kitchens, barbecue areas and private pools.
