Stay at Four Seasons Ritz
Walking into the lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon, it’s hard to imagine you’re in any other hotel. What gives it away? The huge marble lobby filled with extravagant flower displays, the plush, light-filled rooms, the superb service, the spa that in our opinion, beats any other in the vicinity.This is a hotel built to impress and it’s hard not to feel the grandeur in every corner of the building. The Four Seasons may not always be trendy or modern, but it always delivers on the excellence front. Their Lisbon outpost is no different.
Just north of the trendy shopping district of Principe Real with views over the delightful Eduardo VII park. It’s not exactly central Lisbon (there would be no room in the narrow streets for a hotel like this) but few sights are more than a 15 minute uber ride away.
This was a hotel built for show and unabashed luxury and that includes the rooms. Don’t expect modernity, more old school charm without the fuss. The 38 suites have far reaching views of Lisbon and the furniture in most of the rooms is bespoke and elegant with a touch of 50s glamour.
Who is it for
If you’re dedicated to the Four Seasons brand, you won’t be disappointed with this hotel, it’s textbook. Families will also be in luck here with interconnecting rooms, an art app and a child-friendly welcome pack.
Facilities & activities
This is when the Four Seasons comes into its own. Think a 400 metre track on the rooftop with stellar views of Lisbon. Think an 18 metre lap pool and a spa that has been called the best in Lisbon with its Portuguese sourced treatments. Then there’s the hotel’s signature restaurant that wouldn’t look out of place in the London Ritz, overseen by renowned chef Pedro Pena Bastos.
