MEET THE ORIGINAL: RODRIGO MACHAZ
Rodrigo Machaz is as comfortable with his surfboard tucked under his arm as he is walking the corridors of his hotel, Memmo Baleeira, situated in Sagres on the southernmost tip of Portugal. His hotel staff is family – local ambassadors for the region – and his guests are friends. A born and bred hotelier, Machaz returned to the location of his childhood summer holidays to reinvent the town’s former Hotel da Baleeira, maximizing the foundation’s spectacular sea views and the abundance of natural sunlight. For Machaz, business is all about focusing on what is beautiful. Machaz’s talent for highlighting what is beautiful and distinctive about a place also distinguishes his second venture - Memmo Alfama. Here, Machaz has curated an exceptional blend of local cusine, design, history and culture for his guests from tips on where to hear Fado to the selection of fine Portuguese wines on the hotel’s rooftop bar.
