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.

We spent three nights at this stunning, tranquil resort on their Winter escapes package and enjoyed every minute of it. Our room was spacious, elegant with spectacular views. The staff were amazing and accommodating. We can't wait to go back.

Six Senses is a delight from the moment you arrive. The setting is wonderful, overlooking the Douro River and Peso da Regua. We went on walks through the surrounding vineyards and they arranged a boat trip on the river from Pinhao. The food was excellent, be sure to check with the concierge about special wine dinners in the library, they...

Six Senses has hit it out of the park with their initial venture into Europe. First off is the absolutely gorgeous setting in the Douro River valley, surrounded by vineyards and forests. And the building itself - a historic palace turned country villa turned hotel - is to die for. The spa is a must see/feel experience with hot and...
