Had a 3 night break in March, the weather wasn't great but it didn't matter at all, there was so much to do, yoga and other exercise classes, walks around the vineyards and orchards, fabulous indoor pool and spa and even just walking around the enormous rooms with views across the valley tasting delicious wines and food.

The room is very comfortable, with an amazing view over the river. You can see that every detail was carefully thought in order to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We had an exquisite dinner,...

Most beautiful hotel, in most beautiful location. Hard to decide between leaving the hotel to explore the amazing area, or staying put to enjoy the hotel grounds, restaurants, facilities and spa. Highlight of our trip to Portugal.

Every aspect of the Six Senses Douro Valley was extraordinary. The room was very well designed and was truly premium. The wine selection in the minibar was also great - especially the Port wine. The wellness facilities and pool had us up and back there as soon as they opened. Cannot wait to return!

We have loved every aspect of this hotel. A sumptuous mansion, situated in the magnificent Douro region, with marvelous rooms and excellent service. I have stayed there with my husband, 4 children and my mother. We had a "Quinta Superior" and a "Quinta Duplex Suite". They were on the same floor and steps away from each other. The Quinta Superior...

What a peaceful and beautiful location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The building and spaces were extremely well designed. As architects with an eye for design and detailing we truly enjoyed exploring every corner of the spa. The services were relaxing. The rooms were exquisite.
