Located in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage-listed Douro Valley, Six Senses Douro Valley is touched with the romance of 19th century architecture wedded to contemporary interiors reflecting the inimitable Six Senses style. With the River Douro winding its lazy way through the oldest wine-producing region in the world, this serene setting is 77,67 miles (125 kilometers) from Oporto International Airport.
The resort’s estate covers 19 acres (8 hectares) with 60 guest accommodations, the Vale de Abraão restaurant with three different atmospheres: Open Kitchen, Terrace and Dining Room; a Wine Library featuring vintages from the valley and a stunning Six Senses Spa occupying 23,700 square feet (2,200 square meters).
Positioned as the ultimate Douro wine and spa experience, the resort assumes its own regional identity. The stunning historic manor house is both contemporary and sophisticated.
It was originally converted to a hotel in 2007 and renovated to adopt technical and material innovations, then totally recreated, becoming Six Senses Douro Valley, together with faultless service based on thoughtful details and little surprises.
Six Senses Douro Valley offers 60 guest accommodations, which range from Quinta Superior, Quinta Deluxe and Quinta River rooms, to spacious suites. Completely renovated, the décor is a triumph of combining Six Senses natural style with traditional highlights from a past era.

SIX SENSES SPA
A very generously proportioned Six Senses Spa occupying 23,700 square feet (2,200 square meters) comprises 10 treatment rooms, a heated indoor pool with water jets and refreshment bar, plus a gym with the latest exercise equipment and professional guidance. It presents the Six Senses specialty treatments and multi-day programs. There is a range of locally-inspired therapies, which also include some grape and citrus fruit based.
With a décor of ecologically-friendly materials, the feeling is soft and hip; a meeting between nature, Portuguese tradition and the elements of water, nature, space, stone and wood.
Such a welcoming space invites guests to interact with other guests.
From the moment of arrival there is a feeling of total relaxation; perhaps a little bit quirky but a promise of things to come. Venture further into the spa to the reception hub, with comfortable low seating for couples and individuals.
To one side is the Nail Bar which offers wine and cheese tastings during the treatment. Adjacent to this area is the access to the 10 treatment rooms and a consultation room is located on the other side of the reception area. The large well-equipped gym presents the feel of a private living room rather than an exercise area. Directly outside the changing rooms is the unique Alchemy Bar, where potions of herbs, salt, grapes and a range of exotic ingredients are individually blended for scrubs and masks.
An organic herb and plant garden provides key ingredients that are used in spa treatments. In addition to the external pool, a large outdoor yoga deck blends beautifully with nature and is ideal for individual sessions and group training.
