The Lumiares Hotel & Spa stands tall and pretty in Bairro Alto, right at the center of all the buzz and nightlife of Lisbon. The building is an old palace of an 18th century count which has been converted to a chic 47-room boutique hotel. As soon as you walk into the swish atrium, past the hipster Rebel Café on the ground floor, you will feel as if you’ve become part of the “IN” crowd immediately. Everything is glossy and radiates effortless cool, from the immaculately polished geometric floors to the striking triptych tapestries that hang on the lobby walls.
The Lumiares is a love letter to Lisbon. Because if there was ever a city which deserves a thousand love letters, it’s the Portuguese capital. The Lumiares is a “homage to Lisbon’s colors, patterns and light.” The design concept was inspired by the vibrant bohemian spirit of Bairro Alto. Everything in the hotel was thoughtfully created and curated by local artisans, to showcase the immense artistry which resides in Lisbon. Almost all of the furniture, art, textiles and room amenities were designed and manufactured in Portugal, within 500 km from the property. The Lumiares Hotel truly is a one-of-a-kind space where guests can experience the best of Portuguese creativity and design.
The rooms at The Lumiares are outfitted to feel more like apartment homes than hotel rooms. All apartments come with a kitchenette equipped with Nespresso machine, top-of-the-line electric stove, Smeg kettle, toaster and mini-fridge. Plus, the complimentary mini-bar stocked with mini bottles of wine and refreshments is sure to make your day. The rooms are very comfy-chic, featuring clean minimalist furnishings with bold geometric accents to make the space pop. All the rooms have quaint balconies facing out to the streets of Lisbon where guests can enjoy the hustle and bustle of Bairro Alto.
