    Douro41 Hotel & Spa is bookable soon.

    Winding its way from the wilds of the Spanish frontier through northern Portugal and the old city of Porto, the Douro River offers an unsurpassed setting for relaxation and natural beauty. Perched high upon that river’s steep banks, Douro41 Hotel & Spa embraces this eye-catching environment masterfully, choosing to augment its setting rather than overpower it. The results are stunning. Perfectly positioned halfway between Porto and the Douro Wine Region, the natural stone and shale structure blends unobtrusively into the landscape, drawing one’s attention to the true show: the view from the hotel itself. Featuring modern yet minimalist lines; light, contemporary design; and neutral tones, the 56-room, 5-suite property opens guests up to the wonders of the flowing river below—be it from the inviting spa, the infinity pool, the restaurant, the gardens, or just about any corner of this divinely situated, superbly crafted getaway.

    Interior Design

    Floor-to-ceiling windows within the rooms and suites not only accentuate the views from the property but seem to make the river and surrounding rolling hills part of the hotel’s design.

    Architecture

    A harmonious dialogue between rock and soil, between river and edifice, the hotel’s architecture recalls the minimalism of a traditional vineyard terrace and yet is augmented by glass that accentuates its views.

    FRANCISCO MOSER

    It could be said that Francisco Moser is “book smart” in two different ways. There’s the bookwork he did while earning undergraduate degrees in hospitality—including those from the Porto School of Hospitality and Tourism and the Estoril Higher Institute for Tourism—as well as for his postgraduate degrees in Accounting and Finance at the Catholic University of Portugal, another in Digital Marketing, and a master’s degree in marketing. But Moser is also a student of the industry he loves, counting books by the great New York City restaurateur Danny Meyer and by Isadore Sharp, the founder of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, among his favorites. “I like to read books by and about people who look at the hospitality industry in a different way,” he says. Like all great thinkers, Moser is constantly asking questions—How to be different? How to look to the future? How to provide guests with what they are looking for?—and then he answers those questions with his own hotels.
