The Yeatman Hotel

Portugal’s oenophile paradise

Picturesquely perched on the south bank of the Duoro River, The Yeatman Hotel celebrates the best of its homeland in spectacular style. A robust wine theme flows freely throughout the luxury hotel. The motif pays homage to the UNESCO World Heritage City’s roots as the home base for the plethora of English port houses that set up camp here in the 19th century. Historical photos and maps paired with Victorian-inspired furnishings provide a posh setting for sipping on the hotel’s signature beverage, while a decanter-shaped pool and vino-focused spa treatments elevate the port-themed property to chic, modern heights.

But incredible views and stellar sips are just the tip of the luxurious iceberg at The Yeatman Hotel. A boutique size and off-the-beaten-path location make the property a must-visit for those looking to imbibe in a tranquil Portugal escape.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The Porto hotel takes its namesake spirit seriously. A selection of 1,100 ports is available to sip in the property’s restaurants or purchase from the on-site shop.

    • Weekly wine dinners and seasonal parties are as popular with locals as they are with hotel patrons. Stop by to try local vintages, listen to live music and soak up the sunset views over the Duoro River.
    • Each of the boutique hotel’s 82 rooms and suites is uniquely themed to a regional wine partner, though all spaces feature private balconies or terraces for taking in those showstopping vistas.
    • Continue your vino-focused stay in The Yeatman Wine Spa, where an 80-minute Wine Experience intoxicates with an exfoliating body massage using grapeseed oil and other vineyard ingredients.
    • Oenophiles and curious visitors can tour the luxury hotel’s well-curated wine cellar daily from 4 to 6 pm. Notice how bottles are arranged north-to-south to reflect Portugal’s 11 wine regions. Be sure to ask your guide or the concierge about any upcoming seminars and tastings.

    The Restaurants

    • The internationally acclaimed Yeatman Gastronomic Restaurant serves imaginative takes on classic Portuguese cuisine in an indulgent, multi-course tasting menu crafted by executive chef Ricardo Costa. Of course, the nightly changing menu features a selection of Portuguese wine pairings to sip along with your meal.
    • Perched on The Yeatman’s eighth floor, The Orangerie offers a stellar terrace for alfresco dining with a side of terracotta roof views. Dishes range from succulent, slow-cooked pork to a light nectarine sorbet with ginger, each with the potential to be paired with a Portuguese wine that the knowledgeable staff has suggested.
    • Spectacular views come standard at breakfast, a bountiful buffet affair served on The Orangerie’s spacious terrace. Fresh fruit, made-to-order eggs, pancakes, smoked salmon and caviar are just a few of the sumptuous options on offer each morning.
    • New to port? Head for Dick’s Bar & Bistro, where the attentive staff is more than willing to help you find a sip to suit your palate.
