Palácio do Governador

A palatial Portuguese escape with baroque features and a cool creative vibe

The moment you enter Palácio do Governador, you can see how Portugal’s illustrious past has been given an elegant, contemporary twist. In the 17th century, it was the Tower of Belém governor’s home. Today, following a meticulous renovation, this award-winning boutique retreat takes pride of place in the historic heart of Lisbon. 

From the preserved Roman stone vats beneath the entrance courtyard – that once stored fish sauce – to the traditional blue and white tiles lining the walls. Charming details appear around every corner, with their own ancient story to tell. Relax in the cool, calm ambience of your room – beautifully designed and furnished with every modern comfort. Some suites feature the original brick vaulted ceiling and limestone floors, as well as a free-standing tub in the bathroom.  

Wander through the peaceful garden with its magical reflecting water mirror before taking a dip in the two outdoor swimming pools. There’s another heated pool inside the spa, which specialises in Mediterranean-inspired thermal therapies. Or keep up your fitness regime in the state-of-the-art gym. When evening falls, head to the BarTolomeu for a signature cocktail on the terrace before dining in the Po Tat restaurant. Here, authentic Pan-Asian flavours are reimagined with a sophisticated touch – accompanied by majestic views of the River Tagus and Belém Tower. 


Enjoy your stay!
