Convento Do Espinheiro, A Luxury Collection Hotel & Spa Non Refundable
(Evora) 5 5 Star:
Fascinating for its history, authentic for its charm, Convento do Espinheiro, Evora has given life to a 15th century convent, considered a national monument where important nobles have outlined the history of Portugal. Luxuriously restored, Convento do Espinheiro gains a new synergy with the city of Évora, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is only one hour away from Lisbon.
A total of 92 elegantly decorated rooms, including 6 suites, select your favourite atmosphere and choose between a modern decoration inspired in the ´50s or a room in the 15th century convent. Their common denominator is comfort and refinement. A true taste of the Portuguese heritage, the 34 deluxe guest rooms at the Convento do Espinheiro, Évora offer an exquisite combination of luxury design and comfort that is expected from a Luxury Collection Resort. Deluxe rooms are available in a selection of three distinct views - Deluxe Garden guest rooms offer a private balcony with breathtaking views of the resorts garden and court areas, Deluxe pool view overlooking the splendid pool and garden areas as well as the local landscape.
Explore the heavenly flavours of Alentejo gastronomy. The Divinus Restaurant, an ancient wine cellar, offers its guests the essence of local cuisine with a hint of sophistication and refinement. We invite you to embrace the exquisite local wines at our wine bar, originally a Gothic water reservoir dating back to the 15th century. The magic of Alentejo cuisine is in its use of simple and indigenous products, to create meals where the pleasure of eating is akin to cultural homage.
Book accommodation at Convento do Espinheiro and begin your collection of unique experiences with a guided tour of the historic Convent followed by a tasting of the magnificent Alentejo wines in our gothic wine cellar, in the company of our Sommelier.
Guided tour starts at 5pm and wine tasting at 6pm.
This is valid for bookings until 31/10/16 and starts 26/12/15 for bookings for any duration of stay.

I chose this Hotel for a three nights stay in early December. It is located around 4 km from the center of Évora, in what was previously a Convent, that was fully restored. We spent the mornings basically discovering every corner of this unique Hotel and all its pieces of art - being the highlight the Chapel - and in the afternoon we would visit Évora. Breakfast is included and is very good (apart from the waiting, but we were there for a long weekend, and they were clearly full). We were given a classic room and a design room, and the latest was clearly more recent, and had a nespresso machine (that I missed in the classic room). Both rooms had all the necessary amenities, including a robe for a child, much appreciated, and rare to find even in 5 stars hotels. The large balconies had nice views of the surroundings. Wifi was free of charge and worked fine. Service was impeccable. The indoor pool was a tad bit cold for me, but the Jacuzzi was perfect. There is also a small gym available. We had a very enjoyable stay! Collapse

Beautiful old history rich convent . Spg platinum recognition on all fronts including suite upgrade (which we needed after a long transatlantic journey )by friendly and helpful staff . Perfect breakfast. Convenient close to UNESCO evora city . We would always come back when in Portugal . I would upgrade indoor/outdoor pool and gym a bit (luxury collection....) but otherwise perfect. Collapse
Impeccable - Not to be missed!

This hotel was one of those spectacular properties you think about long after you have left - it is 100% worth the visit. Having the opportunity to stay in a restored convent is impressive enough, but both the service and friendly staff made this visit truly memorable. As Platinum guests, we were upgraded to a beautiful suite with a very large terrace - we only wish we had arrived sooner to enjoy it for longer. If our trip itinerary had not been so packed, we definitely would have opted for another night because we simply could not believe how beautiful it was. Gardens surrounding the property are gorgeous with lemon and lime and olive trees. Beautiful outdoor pool and an even more impressive spa inside with a turkish bath, sauna and pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast was superb - high quality and vast selection in yes, you guessed it, beautiful surroundings. In all my travels around the world, this hotel ranks in the top 3 for sure. Do not miss your chance - if you are considering splurging, this is the hotel to do it! Thank you Convento do Espinheiro - magnificent stay! Collapse

Our stay at Convento do Espinheiro happened by accident because of a scheduling error on my part...and what a happy accident it turned out to be. This converted convent is truly luxurious, with beautifully appointed rooms and just enough original decor to maintain the building's historic integrity. Meals are served in the old wine and olive oil cellar which is easily the most gorgeous room on the premises. Breakfast, included in the price, is a wonderful spread including some of the best croissants I have ever eaten. In addition to the bread, jams, meats, cereals and fruit, there is a cook-to-order egg station. Coupled with the ambience of the room, breakfast could not be better. Also included are a wine tasting, featuring wines made from local grapes, and a tour of the facility, offered in both English and Portugese. Hearing the history of the convent served to bring the property to even greater life. The service was exemplary, the bed comfortable and the mood divine. The walled city of Évora is a 5 to 10 minute drive and is a must see in Portugal. I have never been more glad to have made a mistake otherwise I would never have stayed here. It is worth it. Collapse
