Portugal Wellness Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Portugal for Wellness travellers


Finding the right balance between mind and body is naturally expected when visiting Portugal, as its natural wealth offers the ideal conditions for the development of an integrated wellness concept.

The deep valleys in Madeira island, the enchanting forests in Braganca, the view from the cliffs, and the white-sanded beaches in the Algarve are only a few of the places in Portugal that make it the perfect choice for wellness holidays.

Now let’s dive into the top destinations for spa breaks in Portugal and the best spa hotels and wellness resorts that feature state-of-the-art spa facilities.

Best destinations for spa breaks in Portugal

Lisbon is a hilly city of unrivalled beauty, with several spots to climb up and admire splendid views to the sea. It also has many tourists’ attractions, charming plazas, and interesting buildings with Moorish architecture that are worth to pay a visit to. It is a city that really rejuvenates your mind, however, wondering all day around its cobblestone narrow streets can be pretty exhausting. That said, taking a spa break can be truly refreshing! Some of the best spa hotels in Lisbon provide you with special spa treatments, relaxing massages, and deluxe spa facilities.

The Algarve, popular for its sandy beaches, is one of the best destinations in Portugal to spend lazy days on the beach and soak up the healing rays of the hot sun. There you will also find spa hotels and resorts set right on the beach, offering advanced wellness facilities and staffed with professional therapists. Being a coastal city, the Algarve has a plethora of water activities to do, including scuba diving, snorkeling, watching the dolphins, visiting impressive caves, jet skiing, sailing, and much more.

Evora, one of the oldest cities in Portugal which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most interesting yet tranquil places to unwind in Europe. Its medieval beauty travels you back in time, with prominent architectural buildings, cathedrals, and charming narrow streets. The spa hotels of Evora invite you to relax in peaceful settings surrounded by olive trees and natural landscapes.

Vila Nova de Cerveira is the ultimate getaway in Portugal to listen to the birds and escape the crowds and the stresses of everyday life. It is a small Portuguese village that lies on the bank of the River Minho. Apart from swimming and kayaking, there are plenty of activities to do by the riverside including hiking, biking, or just chilling and relaxing with a book on hand.
