It’s not just another
hotel in Lisbon. It is the Palácio do Governador (Governor’s Palace, in
English), with 60 different rooms near the Tagus river in the historic centre
of Belém, one of the most beautiful and emblematic areas of the portuguese
capital. This emblematic boutique hotel revives a unique historical heritage,
whilst investing in quality, intimacy and refinement. EBuilt on the site of the
former house of the governor of the Tower of Belém, exquisitely restored, on
top of roman ruins probably from the 1st to the 5th century, the Palácio do
Governador is a palatial building with a reception that once was a chapel, a
restaurant with original domes as ceilings and contemporary SPA that’s linked
to the ancient thermal traditions of Mediterranean cultures.
Outside, two swimming pools - one for adults, another for children - underscore
the promise of leisure and recreation, making this Lisbon hotel even more
unique and exclusive. The gardens with their reflecting pools offer a serene
and idyllic setting in the middle of the city, contributing to a richer
experience for the hotel’s guests and visitors.
Close to the Tagus and
national historic monuments, Palácio do Governador is the natural choice for
anyone who wants to be in Lisbon, near everything, from culture to leisure and
far enough from the frenzy of the city centre.
The entrance is through the courtyard where the “cetárias” (stone tubs) of the
ancient roman fish sauce factory, “garum”, exported in amphoras to the entire
roman world. The lobby reception is located in the former Chapel, its walls
pannelled with portuguese tiles restored to their original beauty, accompanied
by the original choir stall and double-height ceilings. Meanwhile beneath the
courtyard lies another impressive surprise: the Felicitas SPA, a 1,200 square
meter facility, where preserved Roman vestiges stand watch over a heated
25-meter indoor pool with dynamic water jets, and which offers chromo-therapy,
sauna, Turkish bath, therapy rooms and a gym.
The genuine historic and architectural value is revealed in each of the five
floors of the hotel: on the vaulted ceilings of the restaurant room, on the
successive arches of the ground floor rooms and on the wainscoting tiles in the
living rooms and suites. The balconies facing south offer the guests and
visitors a privileged terrace overlooking the outdoor pool, the Belém Tower and
the Tagus river.
If you are looking for a five star hotel in Belém, Lisbon, the Palácio do
Governador guarantees the best stay in a hotel that breathes history,
refinement and luxury, just 2 minutes walk to Belem Tower.
Close to the Tagus and national historic monuments, Palácio do Governador is the natural choice for anyone who wants to be in Lisbon, near everything, from culture to leisure and far enough from the frenzy of the city centre.
