People pampering comes courtesy of the destination spa. Retreat to the indoor pool, lie back in the water lounge and soak up the soul-lightening mood. For lunch, stop by the Lobby Bar or settle into the Restaurant for Porto on a plate. Up at the Rooftop, fresh-from-the-pizza-oven dishes are served from midday to midnight, when this hip bar really comes into its own. In between, stop by the Café & Store. An eclectic mix of gourmet supermarket, boutique and art gallery, it’s perfect for picnic prep ahead of a day of exploring.
When it comes to adventures in Porto and beyond, The Rebello is an ideal base. Set on the southern banks of the Douro, crossing Ponte Luis I brings you to Infante and the UNESCO-crowned Ribeira district, for sightseeing and port tasting. Or jump aboard a river taxi to see the church spires and towers peeking through the terracotta-roofed skyline. For a bird’s eye view of it all, climb up Sé Cathedral terrace or Jardim do Morro in Gaia. You’re just a tram-ride away from the Atlantic Ocean, too.
Enjoy your stay!
