This apartment complex is a conversion of several huge warehouse buildings facing the banks of the river Douro in Gaia, overlooking Porto, the “capital of the north”. A magnificent building that will encompass 107 apartments – half within the hotel and half as stand-alone residential apartments. There will be two restaurants, a destination spa with indoor and outdoor pool and a fashionable rooftop bar offering spectacular views across the river to Porto itself.
As in our other hotels, the restaurants will be run by a celebrated Portuguese chef, offering excellent, contemporary Portuguese food in a relaxed setting.
The entire space has been designed to respect and underline its distinctive heritage; this means, rooms with high ceilings and huge industrial style windows, loft style apartments flooded with natural light, and extraordinary river views.
Five minutes’ walk from the hotel will take you to the vintage port houses and the cluster of restaurants and bars of Gaia. Another five minutes takes you by foot across the iconic metal bridge of Ponte Luis I into Porto city centre and the Unesco Heritage district of Ribeira. Alternatively you could take a river taxi into town.
All of the 5* apartments come with secure parking and storage facilities, guaranteed ROI over the first three years plus a generous furniture package.
