Sintra – August, 2017 – Penha Longa Spa has been voted Portugal’s Best Luxury Resort Spa in the 2017 World Luxury Spa Awards.

The awards are described as “showcasing the true value of service excellence” and this year more than 100,000 people voted for spas in over 50 countries.

In addition to the public votes, a panel of experts judged factors such as brand, location, overall guest satisfaction, online reviews, services, facilities and spa menu offerings.

Penha Longa Spa offers a holistic approach to health and well-being and enjoys an unforgettable setting within the resort’s historic buildings where it is surrounded by immaculately manicured gardens and 545 acres of national park.

“This prestigious award confirms Penha Longa’s timeless reputation as a sanctuary of tranquility and inner peace—a reputation that dates back to when the Portuguese Royal Family used Penha Longa as a summer retreat and the founding fathers established a monastery here in the 14th century,” said General Manager David Martinez.

Penha Longa Spa offers a range of sophisticated body treatments, massages, facials and beauty rituals as well as treatments by luxury brand Natura Bissé. Alfresco yoga, Qi-Cong, a unique meditation labyrinth and nutritional expertise are also available, while the spa’s TechnoGym fitness centre provides all the essentials for a complete work-out.

“This award underlines the excellent levels of service our spa provides and is wonderful international recognition of everyone who has worked so hard to make it such a success,” added David Martinez.
