On the left bank of the Douro, forty kilometres from the river mouth in Oporto, a marvel has been created: the new Eurostars Rio Douro Hotel & Spa. Nature, river and architecture intermingle to create a perfect symbiosis, a hotel camouflaged on a slope overlooking the river, in tune and harmonizing with the landscape and the environment.
The Eurostars Rio Douro is set in an excellent location, half-way between the city of Oporto and the terraced vineyards where the grapes that will become world-famous Port wine flourish and grow.
A brainchild of architect Joâo Pedro Serôdio, the hotel is configured as a kind of tribute to the typical terraced vineyards, worked on by man through the centuries on the Douro river banks. The Eurostars Rio Douro Hotel & Spa is a daring bet for the most contemporary architecture.
The hotel comprises 42 modern rooms with fantastic daylight illumination and panoramic vistas over the blue serpentine waters. The rooms are designed in a refined minimalist, contemporary style. The Eurostars Rio Douro also provides a spa with an indoor swimming pool, sauna and all types of massage and beauty care treatments.
Amongst other facilities, the Eurostars Rio Douro has a marina with capacity for 26 moorings, a panoramic restaurant serving local cuisine, 3 cafeterias (reception/spa/marina) and a gym.
Due to its location, approximately one hour?s drive from Oporto, the Eurostars Rio Douro offers an unbeatable option for holding meetings and corporate training sessions. The hotel provides two meeting rooms with capacity for 120 persons.
Accesses are 100% adapted for disabled persons or those with reduced mobility.
