ALTIS BELÉM HOTEL & SPA

PORTUGUESE DISCOVERIES AND CULTURAL EXCHANGES
The Altis Belém Hotel & Spa is a hotel located in Lisbon, Portugal, just a few steps from Tagus River, between two main monuments representing the Portuguese Discoveries: the Belém Tower and Padrão dos Descobrimentos, and in front of the Cultural Center of Belém. The main volume of the building with its two floors was set to emphasize the view from the city to the river, as well as the surrounding landscape to its interior spaces. In all public spaces we feel the opening of the building towards the outside, becoming friendly in its location.
The Hotel is all about details and the historical topic is patent in the wide public areas with different spaces of lounge, bar, business centre, library, reception, SPA with a swimming pool, gym and a sun deck on the rooftop, corresponding to spaces thought to be unique in the city scene.
All the 50 rooms have a wooden lacquered surface wall representing the territories that Portuguese have explored, justifying its diversity in 45 different rooms and 5 suites, each one named differently (split in “white rooms” and “black rooms”), where noble materials have been used, enhancing the contemporary architecture and accentuating the luminosity of the room.
