Hotel Information

The Oitavos

Property Description

“Owned by the Champalimaud family, this five-star hotel is encircled by a top-100 rated links golf course. But this is not your traditional golf hotel. It is not even your traditional hotel. It looks more like a city art gallery, or perhaps the headquarters of a software company, built in the sand dunes.” ~ The Telegraph

Surrounded by the natural beauty of Sintra National Park, just 30 minutes from Lisbon and five minutes from the charming fishing village of Cascais, is a hotel like no other: The Oitavos. This sun-splashed modern gem features 142 stylish guest rooms, lofts and expansive specialty suites.

The Oitavos’ winemaker owner has bestowed on the hotel a unique gastronomic and wine focus. This guests can enjoy in a range of settings from the elegant Ipsylon Restaurant and Bar to a private Chef’s Table experience to sushi at The Oitavos Japanese Bar.

Blessed by the legendary mild climate of Portugal’s Estoril Coast, The Oitavos is a year-round destination for active travelers, from golfers to water sports enthusiasts. The hotel’s Oitavos Dunes Golf Course ranks among the world’s best; the estate is also home to an exceptional Equestrian Center, Health and Racket Club, and luxury spa, while just minutes away is the famous surfing beach of Guincho.

Stepping out onto their private balcony, guests are treated to views spanning from the Atlantic Ocean to the award-winning Oitavos Dunes golf course to serene pine forests, and perhaps no views are more stunning than the 360-degree vistas from The Forte, the hotel’s most exclusive suite, with its own private swimming pool and sun deck.
