During the celebratory period of the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of Parque das Nações for the World Expo of 1998, when a whole new and modern district of Lisbon was born, Martinhal Resorts opens Martinhal Lisbon Oriente and Martinhal Residences with the official inauguration having taken place on June 2nd 2023.
The luxury riverside hotel and residences located in Lisbon’s contemporary Park of Nations neighbourhood marks an “important new chapter for the brand”, which is already renowned for its collection of family hotels and resorts in Portugal’s top destinations across Lisbon and the Algarve. Now, a new level of design, sophistication and service has been imagined by the brand’s founders, Chitra and Roman Stern, who welcome guests to their new “home-from-home”, in Lisbon’s thriving cultural hub.
Martinhal Residences has 82 hotel accommodations ranging from studios to one-, two- and three-bedroom self-catered apartments and come fully outfitted with a comprehensive range of amenities. Additionally, there are 75 branded residences including a collection of 7 penthouse apartments, all enjoying views of the Tagus River and the neighbouring park.
Sustainably designed, the building’s architecture was commissioned by world-famous Portuguese architect, Eduardo Capinha Lopes who erected a modern green façade in a prime position in the Park of Nations. Its exterior is enveloped in foliage and local olive trees, making a notable example of biophilic design.
The hotel’s prime location in the contemporary, riverside neighbourhood of the Park of Nations, set in the new northeast part of Lisbon, and built for the 1998 Expo, is today known for its avant-garde architecture, dynamic restaurants and bars, riverside walks, street art displays, and is home to some of the city’s top family attractions, including the Oceanarium, the Science Museum and the panoramic Cable Car (Telecabine Lisboa). It is located within a short drive or metro ride from Lisbon’s historic centre, and only a five-minute drive from Lisbon’s international airport.
