The new and modern building of the Pestana Douro Riverside hotel, built from the old soap factory ‘CUF’ (Companhia União Fabril), has 165 rooms and suites spread over eight themed floors, all of them alluding to botany.

The Group once again had the usual collaboration of David Sinclair, who signed off the architectural project, and Jaime Morais, for the interior design.

The new hotel has an infinity pool on the terrace, as well as an indoor pool, gym and two treatment rooms with the exclusive services of the Magic SPA brand.

The unit also offers the 'Aroma' restaurant, with a grill concept that combines the aromas and essence of fire cooking with Portuguese products and traditional techniques, and the 'The Great Daisy' bar, both with a large and sheltered terrace with views of the Douro River.
