Sintra – July 2017 – Readers of the prestigious magazine Travel+Leisure have voted Penha Longa Resort the number two best resort in Spain and Portugal.

Every year in its ‘World’s Best Awards’ survey, the magazine asks readers to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, spas, airlines and cities. Hotels are rated on their facilities, location, service, food and overall value.

Penha Longa came second in the ‘Best Resorts in Spain and Portugal’ category voted by readers. Announcing the results of the survey, the magazine celebrated the resort’s location as “set in the rolling hills of a 545-acre national park fringed by two spectacular beaches” and singled out for special mention its Michelin-starred restaurant LAB by Sergi Arola, 27-hole golf course and unique 19th century palace setting.

Travel+Leisure magazine has a very discerning readership so it is a great honour to receive such a high ranking in the category of Best Resorts in Spain and Portugal,” said Penha Longa General Manager David Martinez. “There are many exceptional resorts and hotels in both of these countries so to be voted one of the very best is a great tribute to the work of everyone at Penha Longa.”

In 2016 Travel+Leisure readers voted Portugal ‘Destination of the Year’ in recognition of its vibrant cities, the seductive beauty of the Douro Valley, pristine beaches and charming coastal towns.
