Looking for a luxurious base to explore lovely Lisbon? Hotel PortoBay Liberdade is just the ticket. Set just off Avenida da Liberdade, it’s well-placed to explore this colourful city. The area around PortoBay Liberdade is known for its high end shops and hotels but it’s also very near to the quaint Medeiros and Almeida Museum and the peaceful Botanical Garden and a short walk from the buzzing Bairro Alto.

Room with a view

The hotel itself is so much more than just a crash pad. Most of the rooms here have a balcony – a true treat – plus there’s an impressive selection of places to eat and drink in-house including bistronomie restaurant Bistrô4 with a very well-stocked wine cellar, Aviator6 cocktail bar which has live music every Friday night and Deck7, a rooftop terrace with views across town. Yes please.

Time for a dip

Once you’ve finished a day eating your own body weight in custard tarts, jumping on and off trams and hiking up Lisbon’s intense hills, it’s time to head to Mandalay Spa for some well-deserved pampering. There’s a gym, Turkish bath, sauna and heated indoor swimming pool with plenty of comfy loungers to crash out on and a little patio for sunbathing, as well as an outdoor jacuzzi. And that’s before you’ve even delved into the list of treatments. Opt for one of the Ayurvedic rituals, a Thai massage or a rejuvenating facial. Don’t mind if we do.
