In a city that is bursting at the seams with luxury hotels and boutique accommodation, it could be hard to find a stand-out choice in Porto.
However, if you are looking for a something a little different, consider The Yeatman, a haven for wine lovers wishing to learn more about Portugal’s most famous export.
The Yeatman is more than just a hotel. It is an experience, a destination and a veritable feast for the senses. The in-house spa was crowned Europe’s Best Hotel Spa in 2013 at the World Luxury Spa Awards, and not without good reason.
Here, guests can indulge in the unique Vinotherapie care and treatment programmes which are offered exclusively at The Yeatman.
Based on natural ingredients drawn from the vineyard environment and packed with anti-oxidants, the sumptuous products are also available at the Spa Shop for guests to take home as a reminder of their trip to Portugal. The spa area is superbly fitted out with Roman bath, tepidarium, hammam, shower, and sauna, as well as a relaxation area with stunning views and direct access to the panoramic infinity pool.
The Yeatman’s cellars are one of its many crowning glories. Housing one of the most comprehensive collections of wines from Portugal, it is the product of the hotel’s special partnerships with many of the country’s finest producers, many of whom actively participate in the hotel’s tasting, seminar and wine dinner programmes.
Some have even chosen to sponsor individual rooms and suites, bringing a touch of originality and exoticism to an already outstanding Porto hotel.
The Yeatman offers a total of 82 beautiful guest rooms, each with a large private balcony offering unobstructed views out across the Douro River to the centre of Porto on the opposite banks. Each room features its own theme and has been thoughtfully decorated with artefacts that relate to the wine industry and its many quality producers.
Celebrating something special? Opt for the Bacchus Suite, possibly the greatest viticulture-inspired hotel accommodation in the world.
Boasting 150 square metres of space, the Bacchus Suite has high, vaulted wooden ceilings, a fully furnished conservatory, private exterior terrace, and in-room spa facilities that are second to none.
Don’t miss the chance to join one of the hotel’s exceptional wine tasting programmes and seminars, designed to stimulate both mind and senses.
