Hotel Review

L’AND Vineyards sits on the edge of a small lake, beyond which lies a hill, dominated by the white-washed, medieval town of Montemor-o-Novo. With interiors by Marcio Kogan, the main building houses a lobby dominated by wood and slate with bespoke pieces such as a distinctive bench by George Nakashima and locally woven rugs. Beyond that is the restaurant, holder of one Michelin star, which delivers culinary highlights from the region such as black pork with acorns, pistachio and Varanegra smoked ham under gleaming brass Tom Dixon lamps. Wine pairing from the local area and the hotel’s own vineyard is not to be missed. Beneath the restaurant is the small spa and large, heated, swimming pool. Twenty-two suites curve through the vineyards. Ten of them are sky suites, with retractable roofs allowing you to enjoy the clear skies in this region of Portugal and small private patios with a plunge pool inset. Twelve others are land suites with large terraces and a fireplace. All are spacious with equally large bathrooms, tubs made from raw slate and vast rain showers. Underground heating runs throughout. Bedrooms are clad in wooden slatted walls and raw textiles. A large outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by sun beds, runs down to the lake, around which you can ride on one of the hotel’s bikes.

The romantic atmosphere created by Márcio Kogan interior design and Michael Bernstein painting, the outside fireplace, the plunge pool, the window in the top of the bed to see the starry sky of Alentejo… Makes the Sky View Suite unique.
