My wellness break at Penha Longa; a secluded retreat in the countryside outside Lisbon made me feel like royalty. A sophisticated and large golf and spa resort with 194 rooms, set among the spectacular Sintra Mountains and in the beautiful grounds of a 14th-century monastery and, later a 19th century palace. Penha Longa resembles nature, history and luxury with world-class service...
Just off the Estoril coastline of Portugal lies the historical Penha Longa estate, once the frequent summer destination spot for Portuguese royalty. This spectacular wellness holiday dating back to the 14th century is encircled by luscious green hills and glistening lakes, and is even home to an ancient monastery. The hotel has 2 magnificent golf courses, one being an award-winning championship course, and a selection of restaurants for the ultimate dining experience.

Paul’s Review of Penha Longa Resort in Sintra, Portugal
PaulVisited October 2018
All the elements of my holiday in Penha Longa were outstanding. The transfers were on time, the room was excellent and the standard of cleanliness was very high. The staff was very helpful and the location is priceless. A special thank you to the team: please continue to be exactly as you are – very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Everything was so convenient and the spa changed my schedule to accommodate my preferences in terms of times. Classes and consultations were professional yet friendly, with a relaxed feel to it. Concierge sorted out a few outings, trips and tickets for us with no fuss. I’m recommending to my friends and hopefully we will return as a group.

From the time we arrived with the darling little girls all lined up to give us tea and warm towels to freshen up, to the check out at the (sad) end of our stay, we were treated like royalty. We were upgraded to a HUGE suite with views in two different directions. (Marriott / Ritz Platinum members) Every night a special delicacy was brought to our room. We couldn't wait to see what the evening treat would be. The final night there was a book made for us with photos of our welcome to the resort, a personalized photo made out of chocolate - that was incredible, along with an assortment of gourmet chocolates.Read more Read less
There was a sweet note from Marta to tell us good bye, and fresh pastries for our trip home. The 'extra' attention given to the guests is not like anything we've experienced at other 5 diamond resorts. The property is just gorgeous. There's an equine center on the property, a few very old buildings, a monastery and numerous places to explore on hundreds of acres. Il Mercado was initially closed for renovations, but then they decided to put a few tables in the kitchen where we could dine while watching the chef and kitchen at work. It turned out to be one of the highlights. So entertaining! The food was perfection. I hope to return to this amazing property one day!

This is the second time we have visited this place and every time our stay was amazing. The hotel and its location is absolutely stunning, the rooms are beautiful and the staff as helpful and friendly as they can be. The kids club and kids activities will keep even the most demanding children occupied and happy. The spa offers full range of treatments and is very relaxing. We have tried all the restaurants as well as the room service and all the meals were delicious. It takes only short drive to get to Sintra as well as to the seaside. We will definitely return. ;)
