The Grand Y-shape of the José Amaral Anahory designed ultramodern building is subtly asking the question, "why wouldn't you come for a visit?". Located in a beautiful spot of Cascais, right by the Atlantic Ocean, The Oitavos is surrounded by the pristine nature of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.
The 5-star Oitavos has 142 spacious, sunlit rooms and suites to choose from. They come with floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies overlooking the natural landscape of the protected dunes and the Atlantic coast. In your view, you will also have Portugal's best golf course - according to Golf Magazine - called the Oitavos Dunes.
For the best food, head to one of the four on-site restaurants. The head chef is Cyril Devilliers. You should be excited about the culinary experience here because he learned his skills from the three-Michelin-star Michel Guérard. Lucky for you, he is not just a face behind the exquisite food. At the Chef's Table, you'll get the chance to meet him and see him in live-action as he prepares the masterpiece dishes for you. The fresh ingredients are sourced locally from the sea and the land.
The show-stealer has to be the panoramic sauna. The entire wall that faces the wild beauty of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park is a large piece of glass. Ice fountain will help with cooling, and Balneotherapy is available to relax and unwind with the help of the medical effects of heated seawater. An unrefusable offer on the menu is an electric bike ride with a 50-minute deep massage on your return at the Oitavos Spa. How could you say no to this?
The Oitavos Dunes will spoil fans of golf, and if that's not thrilling enough, you can take a helicopter ride to gaze at the amazing sights from above. In addition, the scenic coastal town of Cascais is nearby, making it a perfect destination for a refreshing walk along the Atlantic coast.
