Vidago Palace
First opened in 1910, Vidago Palace was created to provide its discerning clientele with rooms and facilities fit for a king. One hundred years later, after extensive restoration and renovations, the newly decorated Vidago Palace invites today's traveler to be captivated by its Belle Epoque charm, championship golf course, state-of-the-art spa and 5 star hotel services.

Surrounded by natural beauty, Vidago Palace is an outstanding luxury hotel in Portugal, the prefect venue for weddings and events and a proud member of Leading Hotels of the World.

Among the most famous historic luxury hotels in Portugal, Vidago Palace is magnificent yet inviting, combining the grandeur of a palace with the warmth of a country home.

Surrounded by mountains and 250 acres of mature woods and parkland, Vidago Palace enjoys a tranquil setting – perfect for a relaxing and restorative stay. The pure country air and lush grounds, artfully dotted with ornate mineral-water pavilions, provide visitors with a welcome tonic to the trials of modern life.

Inside, the grand staircase, high ceilings, large reception rooms and sweeping views lend themselves to Vidago Palace’s magical atmosphere.

A showcase for traditional craftsmanship, Vidago Palace is resplendent with hand-loomed rugs, elaborate tiling and hand-painted wall-coverings – all designed to respect and enhance the building’s illustrious past.

When Grace Leo was first introduced to the task of reviving Vidago Palace, she captured the hotel’s fairy-tale mystique by likening the project to "the prince awakening sleeping beauty."

The founder of GLA Hotels - which develops and manages luxury hotels across the globe - Ms Leo and her team, in collaboration with interior architects Jose Pedro Lopez Vieira and Diogo Rosa La, renowned architect Alvaro Siza Vieira and with the support of the Palace’s owners, UNICER, worked diligently to recapture and surpass Vidago Palace’s splendour.

With 70 rooms & suites, guests can be assured of an exclusive experience while indulging in the many facilities Vidago Palace has to offer.

The splendid golf course at Vidago Palace is a Cameron & Powell redesign of an original Mackenzie Ross 9, dating back to 1936. Today, the upgraded course meets USGA specifications, having been transformed into an international championship standard par 72, retaining the integrity of the original design and faithfully reflecting the aesthetics, playability, spirit and character of the site
