In northern Portugal, the Six Senses Douro Valley has opened its new Vineyard Wing with seven suites, three additional guestrooms and a meeting and event space that can accommodate up to 70 people.
The new guest accommodations range from 430 to 1,140 square feet with local elements like traditional vineyard tools and wall art inspired by wooden wine cases. Guests can customize their minibars with local wines and produce from across the Douro region.
Nick Yarnell, general manager of Six Senses Douro Valley, said the project took one year to complete and was delivered by New York design agency Clodagh, which created a concept to complement the décor within the main manor house.
Another highlight is the new event space, containing meeting rooms with views across the vineyards and designed to inspire team creativity. The walls have "writable" sections to aid interactive meetings and an adjoining room is available for prefunction or break-out sessions. The multifunction area includes a large open skylight and a full-height living wall that lets the space serve as a quiet lounge to a cinema, lecture room, reception room or yoga or meditation space.
Six Senses Douro Valley now has a total of 60 guestrooms and suites on a historic 19-acre estate. Further amenities include three restaurants, 10 spa treatment rooms and indoor and outdoor pools.
