Duoro Valley: a new Six Senses Hotel
In a sumptuous 19th century wine-making estate, nestled at the top of a hill in the Duoro valley, the Six Senses hotel collection opened its first European establishment in July. Renovated entirely by New York agency Clodagh Design, the property retains its original character, now equipped with a truly contemporary design: natural materials and Feng Shui precepts in accordance with the Six Senses philosophy, which advocates the “slow life”. Take note: guests can overlook the Quinta River covering 50m2…Here they can relax, try out the joys of one of the spa’s 10 treatment rooms. Plus, you can give yourself over to the wonderful cellars, set up for trying wines from the Duoro valley. Two pools – one outdoor and one indoor – allow guests to relax after a visit to one of the neighbouring vineyards.
