Hotel Quinta da Marinha is a luxury resort situated in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
It has an 18-hole golf course, full health club and spa. After the extensive ReStyling in 2014, the Hotel has become more contemporary, making guests feel even more at home. As the reception area is the first point of contact a visitor has with us, we started there, balancing our desire for more personalization with the requirements of hospitality. We’ve ensured it’s now a brighter environment, adding a fashionable grey that combines perfectly with the lighting and the new soft tones. And we’ve carried on that desire to enrich the visitor experience throughout the project.”
The lobby area also benefits from the addition of six paintings by the late Portuguese artist Ana Safer, in which she tells a story of Portuguese wines.
Each of Hotel Quinta's air-conditioned rooms has a spacious balcony with panoramic views of the golf course or the Sintra mountain range. Rooms also include a minibar, flat-screen TV and a private bathroom with Plantation amenities. Five Pines Restaurant offers international buffet meals and Rocca serves gourmet Portuguese cuisine made from organic vegetables grown on-site. Live music can be heard at the Trent Jones bar.

Located in the coastal town of Cascais, Quinta da Marinha Resort is a 35-minute drive from Lisbon and only 4 km from Guincho Beach. A courtesy transfer to Cascais is offered to resort guests. The 2014 Restyling Project, gave special attention to the improvement of the Rooms. To match the famous views of the Hotel Quinta da Marinha Rooms, to the intense green of the Golf and the blue of the lakes, we wanted to redouble the comfort of our guests. The beds were enriched with the quality of the cotton sheets and bulky textures of linen. The new lighting project was designed to give the correct light to the room making it functional and comfortable.
