Reflecting the shimmering Tagus River and the bright Portuguese sun, the award-winning Altis Belém Hotel & Spa seems born of the water. A sparkling gem, the hotel wows you with its striking architecture, Lisbon’s only Michelin-star hotel restaurant, and its prime location, minutes from some of the city’s most well-known museums and landmarks. Its subtle global/local flare enchants all the senses and comes alive in the vibrant wall panels that take you from the Orient to the Americas, in the Feitoria Restaurant & Wine Bar where traditional flavors blend with exotic cuisines from around the world, and in the exclusive BSpa by Karin Herzog where oxygen therapy and ancient oriental traditions of relaxation ensure the ultimate wellness for body and mind. As you dive into the rooftop pool with amazing views of the white city, feel the chilled out Iberian vibe drive out every last trace of worry.

Given that Altis Hotels was founded in the 1970s, one might think that that company is firmly set in its ways. Altis is, after all, now one of the largest hotel groups in Lisbon. But Raul Martins and Maria Júlia Valente Rodrigues do not live off of past achievements. Marching in their father’s footprints—he was a cofounder of Altis—the duo continues to embrace a strong connection to the local Lisbon scene, an unflinching dedication to top service, and singular design—what they see as their lynchpins to success. “Good design can last a lifetime,” says Maria Júlia, and it rings true—to experience one of their properties today is to step into the Lisbon of yesterday and tomorrow.
