The Yeatman is a luxury wine hotel and spa situated in the historic city of Porto, Portugal and yes, the combination of those magic words ‘luxury, wine and spa’ really do combine to create one of the best hotel stays a person can experience. The Yeatman, a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux group of properties is undeniably Porto’s best luxury hotel and most definitely one of those ‘must visit’ locations that should be on every luxury loving traveller’s bucket list.
A truly special hotel
There are many things that collaborate to make The Yeatman one of our new all time favourite hotels. Whether it was the location, the views, the atmosphere, the service, the understated yet easily classy interiors, the sumptious spa or the entirely delicious vegan food; The Yeatman delivers on every level.
By day or by night, the views across The Douro River are captivating. Imagine the tiled rooftops of the cellars of the world’s best Port wine houses leading down to the river which for centuries has been the lifeblood of the city. Imagine a panoramic view of the UNESCO protected historic old town, the striking Dom Luis I suspension bridge and seagulls soaring through the air.
A perfect location
Located in the Vila Nova de Gaia district that stretches up from the Douro river, nestled amongst the cellars of the famous Port houses, The Yeatman is within walking distance to Porto and the whole quayside entertainment area. It’s close to both the metro and mainline railway stations (Lisbon by train takes approximately 2 1/2 hours) and just 20 minutes away by car from Porto international airport.
A room with a view
Wake up to the sounds of seagulls and church bells ringing out over the rooftops, watch the trams glide over the Dom Louis I bridge from your view filled balcony, sleep in a wonderfully comfortable bed and enjoy the classical design of your room.
With The Yeatman being a luxury wine hotel, it seems only fitting that each room and suite is partnered with a well known Portuguese wine producer. They are themed with artifacts and pictures offering an overview of their vineyard and their wines giving a unique and interesting character to each room.
