Historic opulence meets modern chic in ‘Portuguese Venice’
Cool hallways and lofty ceilings offer a welcome respite from Aveiro’s sunny streets, and a sense of space and luxury is felt from lobby to bedroom. Eça’s literary legacy is palpable too, with suites inspired by his characters, a reading room, and a striking mural connecting past to present. If relaxation is on the agenda, look no further than the atmospheric Moments Spa, where a sweeping colonnade and the sound of water set a mellow tone. Feeling refreshed, it’s time to explore the bar menu. Order a cocktail to the intimate patio and let the conversation flow, before sitting down to a sublime dinner in the hotel restaurant.

While tranquillity reigns in the palace, Aveiro’s historic centre is a whirlwind of activity. Make a grand exit onto Rua José Estevão, and in a few steps you’ll find the Teatro Aveirense, Aveiro City Museum, and the Moliceiros pier. Embark on a private tour of the city’s jewel-like canals and you’ll soon see why it deserves the nickname ‘The Venice of Portugal’. To explore further afield, tap into the hotel team’s local knowledge – the creation of bespoke, personalised experiences is all part of the service.
