The converted and restored 17th-century property is situated on the outskirts of the city of Fundão, and proudly displays many fine examples of its former glory days. Period architecture, exposed brickwork and stunning views of the tranquil countryside help to create the perfect retreat space.
Although it’s possible to enjoy a peacefully monastic experience away from it all, there are also plenty of wellbeing options for guests to indulge in and explore. On-site complementary services include a fine dining restaurant and bar, Bodhi Spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a games room. Free WiFi access is also available at the 100% non-smoking hotel.
The Pecado Fine Dining Restaurant serves up delicious traditional Portuguese cuisine that showcases a creative contemporary take. The décor is minimalistic and fashionable. Popular traditional recipes have been lovingly recreated in a modern style that celebrates the gastronomy of the region. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients are presented in a classy upscale fashion that beautifully contrasts with the historic surroundings. Dine on seasonal favourites and tempting desserts that flaunt the wow factor. End the evening sipping colourful cocktails by the fireplace, in the lavish double-height, glass-domed lounge.
The 24 chic air-conditioned rooms, suites and villas at the Convento do Seixo Boutique Hotel & Spa are spacious, comfortable and luxuriously decorated and furnished in an elegant modern style. The lovingly restored old convent’s kitchen and monk’s quarters have been transformed into a trio of Suite King Deluxe rooms that boast a contemporary standalone bath situated in an open plan bedroom.
Suite Superior was once the cozy abode of the convent novices, and now features hi-tech facilities that are designed with the traveller in mind. The Double and Twin Superior and Deluxe rooms offer fabulous views of the beautiful garden and spectacular Gardunha mountain range, with additional decorative heritage features. The Deluxe Villa accommodates up to 4 people and has a fully equipped kitchenette and panoramic view private balcony. All guest rooms have an en-suite bathroom and a host of amenities.
The Bodhi Spa is located in the property’s former workshop. The spa’s heated indoor pool features a dynamic circuit of water that includes waterfalls and underwater jets that stimulate pressure points on the body, to melt away aches and pains. There are also hydro massage beds available. Guests can relax and re-energise with halotherapy in the salt cave, or detox in the saltwater flotation pool or sauna. Personalised body treatments that soothe, restore and rejuvenate are available in the massage rooms.
The swimming pool is closed from Wed 16th Oct 2019 until 15 April 2020
