Stylish five-star Portugal stay at self-catering spa resort on the banks of the Alva River - with breakfast, spa access, patisseries and more

It’s all about tapping into nature at this contemporary five-star spa resort set on the banks of the Alva River in Portugal’s striking Cento Region. Not only will you enjoy ravishing views of mountains, valleys, forests, and hills for miles around, but you’ll also have the famous Serra da Estrela Nature Park (home to the country's only ski resort) just three miles away.

All of the 29 ultra-sleek apartments hit the spot with minimalist-chic design. Expect separate dining and living areas, private balconies, sofas with chaise lounges, and kitchenettes with all the cookware you’ll need. But it’s the thoughtful extras that clinch the deal; think beds swathed in luxe linens, pillow menus, bathrobes, pool towels, and flatscreen TVs with digital channels.

Elsewhere, you’ll find a cinema room, a kids’ club, a restaurant for gourmet palate-pleasers paired with fine Dão wines, and a bar for signature cocktails and mocktails. And then, of course, there’s the spa - a state-of-the-art space complete with hot springs, hydrodynamic pool, outdoor hot pool with Jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath, and treatment rooms for feel-fabulous beauty rituals.


There’s a minimalist-chic look in the 29 sleek apartments, all of which are designed to a very high spec. The very spacious Deluxe Family apartment comes with a separate living, dining and sleeping area, flatscreen TV with satellite channels, sofa with chaise lounge, and comfortable double bed with luxe cotton linens and a choice of pillows. There’s also a well-equipped bathroom and a kitchenette with all the cookware, cutlery and crockery you’ll need during your stay. Thoughtful extras include bathrobes, slippers, pool towels, and complimentary toiletries. Please note that this apartment is designed to sleep two adults and two children.

Under the helm of Chef Anderson Miotto, the menu at Roots Restaurant pulls focus on traditional cuisine with a modern twist. Expect seasonal dishes made with locally-sourced ingredients as well as a superb wine list with reds and whites from Portugal's prestigious Dão region. There’s also a lovely bar where you can kick back with signature cocktails created by a professional mixologist. Room service is available during selected hours.


For next-level pampering, Spa Sensations is a state-of-the-art sanctuary complete with hot springs, hydrodynamic pool, outdoor hot pool with Jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath, and hot and cold showers. There’s also a professional therapist team for customised massages, facials, body treatments, and thermal experiences. The spa opens daily.


Set on the banks of the Alva River on the outskirts of Oliveira do Hospital, you’ll be staying in the town of Caldas de São Paulo in Portugal’s Centro Region. Most fabulously, you’ll be just three miles from Serra da Estrela Nature Park - one of the country’s first designated parks that still remains its largest protected area at around 1,000-kilometres-squared. Must-dos here include hitting the countless hiking trails, marvelling at Portugal’s highest mountain, and keeping an eye out for Roman ruins. There’s also plenty to thrill outdoorsy types; from fishing, horse riding, paragliding, and mountain biking, to skiing, sledging, and snowboarding (weather depending). Aqua Village Health Resort & Spa is a two-hour drive from Porto International Airport.
