The Oitavos, Quinta da Marinha, Cascais, Portugal…

Where Set within the Sintra Cascais Natural Park, on the wild west Atlantic coast close to Guincho beach and town of Cascais.

The Look Avant Garde meets space age meets slick luxury. Due to some clever architectural workings, each of the 142 guest rooms has a spectacular sea view. But that’s not to say what’s inside isn’t beautiful – spaces are minimal, light-filled and chic; doing the less is more thing with style. The hotel is in the middle of a golf course, but golf widows/widowers are warmly welcomed and catered for, with a fabulous spa, indoor and outdoor pools, an equestrian centre and tennis club.

USP This is the ultimate mix of sleek luxury set in a wild landscape – perfect for enjoying nature, from the comfort of your pristine pool-side daybed. If you’re on your honeymoon (first, second or even third), there’s a special Romantic suite built in the secluded grounds with private outdoor pool and personal butler.

While you’re there For a bit of culture take a small trip to the nearby towns of Cascais, Estoril and Sintra, for centuries of history and architecture. If all that relaxing has become tiresome, there’s world-class wind and board surfing on some of the most beautiful beaches on the coast. Fend off cabin fever with a night out in Lisbon, a 20-minute cab ride away.
