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.

The hotel is word class renovation of an old convent into a modern facility that takes the past and makes it the bones of the modern. While situated a little out side of the city center (about 10 minutes’ drive) the hotel is self-contained and was great experience for one-night stay. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and received a several level upgrades into a wonderful suite. While my booking was in the modern part of the hotel, and the suite was in the older part of the hotel it was top notch and functional. The older parts of the hotel give it character despite (or because) the winding hallways and chambers repurposed as restaurants and common areas. Breakfast is ample, but not as ample as other hotels we stayed in. That said, it is more the suitable and provides many choices, including cook to order eggs. WiFi was free and function very well. A mix-up on the charges at check-out was handled very well. All in all it was a very nice stay and a recommended hotel. Collapse

Absolutely magnificent five star property located about 3 km outside Evora (an 8 to 9 Euro cab ride to town). Service is impeccable. Rooms are very nice but not spectacular. The property, its renovation and the “do whatever it takes” service commitment are what makes this hotel a truly exceptional experience. After all, how many hotels can claim to have a stunning church chapel as its focal point? Collapse

While on a bike trip to Portugal, this was one of the hotels we stayed at on our route. The property was amazing. The historical features, including the wine cellar, church, former kitchen and outdoor orchard was amazing. The amenities will spoil you. There is an indoor pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. The breakfast buffet is scrumptious and the rooms very spacious and elegant. This was a beautiful spot to stay in. Collapse

What a wonderful experience it was to stay in this historic convent now beautiful hotel. We arrived late afternoon and the reception was welcoming. The room we were allocated was in the new part of the hotel. Nice view, balcony and a good bed. Bathroom with bath and shower. And a toilet with auto-wash and dry facilities. New to me and a “ must try” when the time is there. We did not feel to go to the main restaurant and had a meal in the bar. Expensive wine unfortunately. A glass of reasonable wine cost between €8 and €11 which I feel is overdone. The next morning we woke up hearing the sound of silence, a cock in the far waking up the farm. This is what we were looking for! During the day we visited the sites and wine estates recommended by the reception of the hotel. All super recommendations! Tired and ready for relaxation we went to the Spa in the hotel. Very friendly professionals. Very good massage. The best we have had for some time. The massage is highly recommended. Quite expensive but worth it. The swimming pool needs some maintenance but was very pleasant. We took the tour to get to know the history of the building and after that the wine tasting. Both nice experiences. As the closure of the day we went to the main restaurant. What a pleasure. Nice entourage in the old wine cellar. The staff very friendly and the sommelier very knowledgable. There is a new chef with sometimes dearing ideas. Very well done! We have had a beautiful stay and we would recommend this beautiful hotel. It must be a challenge to maintain a historic building like this and we hope they succeed. Good kitchen( in the main restaurant not so much in the bar) comfortable rooms, good bed, good recommendations for sites and external restaurants! We would love to come back Collapse

We stayed in rooms 218 and 219 in the old section, which were formerly monk's cells in this unique property that dates back to the 15th century. When we booked it was part of Starwood, but by the time we arrived that connection had been severed. I'm so glad we came anyway. I have no experience with rooms in the larger new section, but our experience was memorable, even though some basics like heat were a little funky in such an old stone building. 219 has a nice terrace. The hotel has the original chapel inside it which is still used for services once a month. There are two restaurants on site. The only down side is that the hot tub was merely tepid, which we encountered more than once in Portugal. The tepidarium (steam room), on the other hand, reached an un-tepid 50C. The convento tour and wine tasting were enjoyable additions to the experience. I imagine the outside pools and grounds (olive trees that are used in the property's own olive oil, and citrus orchards) are fabulous in the heat of the summer; during our rainy visit they were still nice to stroll around. Each of our rooms had a bottle of chilled champagne and chocolates awaiting us. You may complain about the small TV, but trust me, that's not why you're here. I've stayed in other charming medieval properties in Europe, and Espinheiro is high on my list for a repeat visit. Collapse
