Luxury Holidays At Vidago Palace

Vidago Palace is an award-winning member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World' and set in an idyllic location within the verdant Vidago Park in the pretty spa town, Vidago. Opened in 1910, this luxurious, stately property – commissioned by King Carlos I – offers guests a taste of the legendary Belle Epoque era and was originally built to entice wealthy international travellers of the time to visit Vidago and experience the health benefits of the local mineral water. Embracing tradition and modernity to stunning effect, the characterful, sympathetically restored, retreat now boasts a contemporary spa offering thermal treatments, beautifully decorated dining venues serving gourmet Portuguese cuisine and a championship-level, eighteen-hole, golf course set within its gloriously peaceful grounds, along with a collection of comfortable, individually designed, guest rooms and grand suites. Perfect for couples wishing to enjoy a sophisticated stay with plenty of interesting things to see and do locally in nearby towns and slightly further afield in the famous Douro Valley, Vidago Palace also welcomes children of all ages and provides a programme of activities and golf instruction for them during the summer and festive seasons.

Sharpen your swing on the award-winning greens of Vidago Palace, a par-72 course that has real championship potential.

The final three are in the upper section of the park, promising blissful views of hilly countryside and sleepy villages. Facilities and services include a golf academy, driving range, chipping area, putting greens, club hire, buggies and a children's golf school during the summer.

Spa Breaks

The spa's architectural design - using smooth white marble and clean straight lines - brings a contemporary twist to this opulent resort. Tucked in a secluded and scented setting of pines, cedars, rosemary bushes and lavender, its minimalist style is utterly serene, offering a somewhat Zen-like atmosphere. The line-up here includes a collection of treatment rooms and thermal suites, plus a fabulous menu of therapies. Vidago is a spa town whose mineral waters are proven to improve body, mind and soul. At the spa, experience the water via revitalising ice fountains and showers, the heated vitality pool with water jets, a sumptuous hammam and more.


Fancy treating your loved one to a stay in a lavish royal residence? Vidago Palace fits the bill in every respect; a truly dashing property oozing romantic appeal. Celebrate your honeymoon here and enjoy indulgent couple's treatments in the spa, delectable dinners accompanied by violinists, guided tours of the region's historic landmarks, wine-tastings and more. Romance packages, meanwhile, feature exclusive extras for that extra-special touch, such as Champagne and truffles on arrival.


Vidago Palace hotel makes an impressive backdrop for your 'big day' and its team of wedding planners will pull out all the stops to ensure everything's perfect. There are various indoor and outdoor venues to select from for saying "I do" and partying afterwards, whether it's an intimate or large event.
