Facilities will include an all-day restaurant, specialty sushi venue, brew bar and cocktail bar, with arts, crafts and wellness activities on offer for families.
A third property is set to open in Portugal in 2025, within the converted Palácio Lavra and Palácio das Pedrosas in Lisbon. The group’s second property in the country, the hotel will be home to 114 rooms, including suites featuring private kitchens and al fresco terraces, plus a private garden with glass atrium, an organic restaurant, lively lounge bar, greenhouse bar and all-day coffee shop.
Its 1,000 square metre spa will feature eight treatment rooms, a fitness centre, dance studio, yoga pavilion and juice bar, with therapies and programmes in line with the brand’s signature wellness offering.
