Per Person Per Night
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.

What a great place. Large balcony with an amazing view over the fields arround. The staff was very polite and friendly. Very quiet place to rest. The room was not very spacy but very confortable. A very good place to go on a romantic weekend.

Located outside the old town - this is an old convent spread over a nice garden. Nicely restored, they have added new wings that have modern updated rooms with everything you expect in a luxury hotel. The staff were warm & welcoming - very helpful in making suggestions & reservations for places to visit & restaurants etc. They have an excellent restaurant - the food was delicious & Michelin starred. Breakfast is served each morning in the same location & was varied & plentiful. They have an outdoor pool & the spa services are fine. We tried out their massage & the masseuse was very good. Overall - we spent 3 nights here & enjoyed it very much. Free parking & the ease of which to get around the area was also good. Collapse
Beautiful hotel at a well-preserved 15th-century convent

We spent 4 nights, including New Year’s Eve, in this beautiful hotel. Although it is not walking distance from Évora, since our plans were to travel around Alentejo and have a nice base in a convenient location, it worked perfectly. We booked a room at the hotel’s new wing, a bit far from the hotel common areas but extremely comfortable, lots of privacy and a nice balcony with Alentejo views. Guests have complimentary wi-fi, water and 2 Nespressos/ day. They also offer complimentary wine tasting every day at 6PM, and a hotel tour. It is worth to visit the chapel (where they still have service every Sunday), the library, and the maze in the garden. Food at Espinheiro is delicious! Their breakfast is good (a better service would make it great), and having dinner at Divinus is a must. Great wine list and the food justify the name of the restaurant (the bread pudding was to die for). Their spa is remarkable. Friendly staff, and Madalena was not just a great therapist but also, extremely kind. For those planning to spend New Year’s: great wine, delicious food, good music, and fireworks. The invitation we got was for a “gala dinner” but the dress code was not taken seriously by all guests, so don’t worry about a real gala gown (unless, of course, you want it). And something I wish I knew before: the New Year’s dinner was at the hotel convention center, which is outside the main building. Not really friendly for thin high heels. :) What could be better: (1) their standard is to keep the minibar off/empty, so asking their guests before check-in if it should be supplied might save the “surprise"; (2) the hair dryer in the room is extremely slow and stops working easily; and (3) the equipment and size of the gym can be improved. Anyways, details that wouldn’t prevent us from coming back. Collapse

The hotel in located just outside of Evora, 1h from Lisbon. This hotel has both a classic decor and a modern feeling in the new part. All rooms are very spacious and with nice views to the Alentejo countryside... All the things we've tried were correctly prepared and the staff was nice! A place to enjoy all year long. Collapse

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We had a nice room with a balcony overlooking the swimming pool (in the distance). The bed and pillow were very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. Wine tasting was offered each night in the cellar at 6pm. A very interesting and informative tour of the convent is offered each night at 5pm. The hotel is privately owned and new rooms have been added and renovations done. The old part is still very interesting to see. One interesting point to make is that even though it is called a convent, there has never been any nuns there, only monks. They are buried outside in unmarked graves but the aristocracy are buried in the beautiful church in crypts and under the floor. The buffet breakfast was very nice, as was the freshly squeezed juice every morning. We had dinner there one night which was very nice. The service was excellent. Wines were recommended, explained and served by the sommelier. We were given a pennyroyal liquor on the house then another drink was suggested. I wasn't sure if this was also on the house but when we got the bill, it was over 10 euros per glass! It was too cold to use the swimming pool unfortunately. We did go to the spa on 2 occasions. We had facials and massages. 100 euros for a one and a half hour facial. All very nice as were the staff and ambience of the salon. The restaurant and spa are expensive but we knew they would be and decided to treat ourselves. If we were closer to town, we probably would have used the spas' and restaurants there. It is a 10 minute drive into Evora and costs about 8 euros in a taxi-more at night. Collapse
